supposed to fall on the common man or even on the state exchequer directly since the government in the very beginning itself had said that it will issue bonds to raise funds to execute the waiver gambit But the fact is that there will surely be pressure on public exchequer eventually as the waiver will remain an unstated liability on its books and will weaken the fiscal position of the state More important point here is this Adityanath should recall that the real impact on the common man on account of loan waivers has never been the cost of implementing the waiver itself but the death of credit culture and the moral hazard it causes even on honest borrowers for several years to come in a large geography This sends a signal to the people that farm loans are something where repayment isn’t really necessary since the government will announce a waiver at some point The big instant victims will be banks which lend to these farmers Remember even if the loans are waived for a year the farmer will have to go back to the bank yet again to buy seeds and fertilizers and make up his losses in the last season And the banker will surely think twice before sanctioning the loan If this happens the farmer will be forced to go to the local private money lender and fall into the debt trap Ultimately the reason for several hundreds of farmer suicides across the country can be traced to the social ignominy the debt-ridden farmer is forced to face rather than crop losses To avoid this maintaining a healthy relation between the farmer and the banker is important Loan waivers break this trust Also the promised benefits of loan waivers hardly reach the actual needy farmer Small and marginal farmers who have very small land holdings are often left out of the exercise and only the rich-farmers benefit The big example is the 2008 UPA-sponsored loan waiver As repeatedly pointed out by experts the sustainable way to get the farmer out of the debt burden is to make sure he gets support to avail the raw materials and reasonable price for the produce If short-term financial assistance is a must then governments can look for alternatives of loan waiver such as offering a temporary repayment holiday or reduction in interest amount Both Fadnavis and Siddaramaiah have set good examples on this subject that should be an eye opener for politicians like Adityanath PM Modi

national name recognition less money and zero campaign infrastructure in place Pataki publicly flirted with a White House bid in 2008 and 2012 and its tempting to interpret his revived interest as a

presidential campaign for long enough to grab the national spotlight Wyoming businessman Foster Friess kept Rick Santorum afloat for long stretches in 2012 while Adelsonthe single biggest donor of that campaignforked over enough money to let Newt Gingrich spend months traveling the country to torture Mitt Romney Adelson has no plans to match the $150 million or more he shelled out four years ago according to a source close to him But is still expected to spend in support of his signature issues A hawkish foreign policy devoted to the security of Israel remains his chief concern But he has also lavished cash on Republican candidates and committees amid his push for a national Internet-gambling ban Pataki isnt the only surprise candidate in the Adelson primary Take Lindsey Graham the Republican senator from South Carolina who is also publicly weighing a long-shot campaign for the GOP nomination In March Graham introduced a bill in the Senate that would effectively impose a national Internet-gambling ban Graham will reintroduce the same measure this Congress says communications director Kevin Bishop Graham calls online gambling a threat to public safety "I think people in the criminal world and terrorist world could get a benefit from it" he told TIME But pushing the ban has also paid off for the South Carolina Senator who reaped at least $31200 in 2013 from Adelson his wife and two daughters according to public data compiled by the Sunlight Foundation The Adelson derby isnt just for the also-rans Last spring a slew of top-tier GOP presidential hopefuls including Jeb Bush Chris Christie and Scott Walker made pilgrimages to Las Vegas to speak at the Republican Jewish Coalitions annual conference It isnt likely that Adelson will shower cash on a single favorite in 2016 as he did with Gingrich four years ago but hes willing to crack open his wallet to keep his issues at the forefront of the debateand to make life difficult for candidates who dont see eye to eye with him If support for Israel is Republican orthodoxy gambling is more complicated It is a rare issue that splits the GOP pitting religious conservatives against states-rights activists and libertarians The prominent anti-tax conservative Grover Norquist told TIME in an interview that Congress should reject a national ban and let states decide the issue "You dont want the federal government coming in" he says Adelson says he opposes online gaming on moral grounds " You would think the chairman of the worlds largest gaming company would pursue any aspect of gaming which could increase profits right" he wrote in an op-ed for Forbes in 2013 "Ordinarily that is truebut online gambling is fools gold Whether it is full casino gaming poker only or anything in betweenthis is a societal train wreck waiting to happen" Thats all a bit rich: from at least 2001 to 2007 Adelsons company pursued the possibility of developing its own gaming website before abandoning the idea And while it’s unclear whether Graham’s bill can pass Congress Adelson is still changing the debate through donations to old allies and potential new ones In 2014 he shelled out the individual limit of $2600 to nearly every successful Senate Republican challenger including Thom Tillis Cory Gardner Tom Cotton Dan Sullivan David Perdue and Bill Cassidy according to CQ Moneyline Photos: On the Road

circulated a letter to colleagues protesting Grahams online gambling bill Wicker the new chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee argued a national ban would give the federal government regulatory powers that are reserved for the states "We believe that a bill that encroaches on the long-standing authority of states to decide issues related to gaming is not the answer" says the Dec 3 letter a copy of which was obtained by TIME The push was dropped an aide to Wicker says when it became clear the bill wouldnt pass But it also had the potential to strain relations with Adelson who gave $132 millionmore than any other GOP-aligned donor according to Politicoto help the party snag the Senate majority in 2014 Pataki thinks he may have the background to whet Adelsons appetite The former three-term governor was running Albany during the Sept 11 terrorist attacks and is "ardently opposed to the Presidents leading from behind strategy on foreign policy" says spokesman Catalfamo And Adelson isnt the only potential benefactor with whom he rubs elbows "Hes very friendly and has long relationship with a lot of folks who are billionaires" says Catalfamo

"is a supreme paradox: on the one hand he is the ultimate symbol of our racial progress and on the other hand the most undeniable reminder of the bloody price we paid for that progress Thus he is at once soothing and subversive both reassuring and troubling" In other words for a biopic to capture successfully the power of Kings dream it would also have to recognize the tragedy of his death a visceral and violent reminder that Americas racial crisis is ongoing and that the dreams of the civil rights movement are still unfulfilled This is not to say that filmmakers have not tried Several award-winning documentaries most notably King: A Filmed Record… Montgomery to Memphis and PBS Eyes on the Prize and Citizen King have consistently provided us with Kings image and words within the tumultuous context of his time And in 1978 Paul Winfield played King in Abby Manns six-hour mini-series King on NBC Winfield Cicely Tyson who played Coretta and Ossie Davis as Kings father all earned Emmy nominations for their roles Its conspiratorial ending on the other hand courted so much controversy that it prompted an inconclusive congressional investigation of Kings murder Between then and now Kings legacy not only increasingly became conflated with a simple story of American racial progress but Hollywoods most successful films on the civil rights era (with the important exception of Spike Lees 1992 Malcolm X)Mississippi Burning (1988) The Long Walk Home (1989) and most recently The Help (2011)all told a story of resisting segregation through the more conciliatory experience of interracial friendships or white heroes Contrastingly DuVernays Selma not only redirects our attention to the myriad of African Americans organizers students and everyday citizens who pushed the demands of the Civil Rights movement but in the process rescues King from the tomb of American memory Through her eyes and now ours King emerges as a lover and leader preacher and philanderer a genius strategist and a vulnerable citizen Through the film he leans on others his wife gospel singer Mahalia Jackson young activist John Lewis even Malcolm X as they all lean on him In this way Selma is the big screen bookend to HBOs 2001 television movie Boycott based on Kings first major campaign the 1955 Montgomery Bus Boycott to desegregate public transportation Directed by Clark Johnson Boycott starred Jeffrey Wright and Carmen Ejogo as a Coretta (a role that she brilliantly reprises in Selma) but showcased King as a young leader learning from and organizing with veteran activists like Jo Ann Robinson ED Nixon and of course Rosa Parks Perhaps the best movies about King are not based solely on him Rather they tell the history of the civil rights movement as it was: ideologically conflicted multifaceted and marked by big losses and mini-victories And through such renderings of the past we discover a new King who was both a man and an engine of a movement He is more radical more complex and perhaps more prophetic And even though this King might not be the hero that we thought we knew he is the one that our time desperately needs Salamishah Tillet is an associate

welcome outside contributions Opinions expressed do not necessarily reflect the views of TIME editorsWhen the rapper and actor Tupac Shakur died on Sept 13 1996 TIME called his murder "a defining nightmare for a gangsta-rap world whose paranoid royalty seem increasingly compelled to live out the grotesque violence that fills its art" In the 20 years since however his legacy has proved to be about much more than that “gangsta-rap world” according to research by Jeremy Prestholdt an associate professor in the Department of History at UC San Diego His book Icons of Dissent: The Global Resonance of Che Marley Tupac and Bin Laden is due out next March Prestholdt tells TIME that while researching in East Africa in the years after Shakur’s death he realized that Shakur had a “global resonance” that was “more complicated and more nuanced than what I was familiar with from an American perspective” As Prestholdt described in a 2009 article for the Journal of African Cultural Studies Shakur became a widely used symbol during the civil war in Sierra Leone which began before his death and went on until 2002 He “became a lodestar for multiple rebel factions” Prestholdt says and the Revolutionary United Front used Tupac T-shirts as uniforms The rapper was likewise a symbol in places including the Democratic Republic of Congo Ivory Coast and Libya Prestholdt explains that there was a “convergence of circumstances” in the early 1990s that led to this situation Hip-hop had become a globally popular art form and he was recognizable all over the world There was a post-Cold War “sense of disillusionment” a loss of meaning which Shakur was able to capture His message about systemic oppression and poverty appealed to many even those whose experiences were very different from his And of course there was his headline-making sudden death at the height of his career Prestholdt posits that his death helped make him “a symbol of possibility of life cut short” as well as righteous violence and “courage invincibility resilience [and] a form of masculinity” in many different places around the world where people faced violent trauma from South Africa to the South Pacific Get your history fix in one place: sign up for the weekly TIME History newsletter That symbolism has only increased in the past two decades "Tupac has become more and more a mythlike figure since his death” Prestholdt says "Thats consistent across very different socioeconomic very different national environments” But that myth has also changed as some of that post-Cold War alienation has faded One of Prestholdt’s arguments is that in order for someone who has become a symbol to remain one the symbolism has to evolve over time In some ways the violent end that helped establish Shakur’s legacy has become less and less a part of his story especially in the United States "He was vilified during his life by lawmakers and others and then you fast forward to the recent past and you have his poetry being used in Powerade commercials you have the Vatican in 2009 using his music on their MySpace page” Prestholdt says The social relevance of his lyrics has taken on prominenceas for example in the musical Holler If Ya Hear Mewhile the parts of his life that were seen more critically at the time have tended to fall away from view “He has become a voice for people who feel alienated who feel marginalized by political or social systems and I think the fact that he in the minds of listeners or fans really gave voice to their sense of alienation or their grievances is what continues to make him such a powerful and resonant figure” Prestholdt says “People feel like hes speaking directly to them and hes narrating their experience” Read TIME’s 1996 coverage of Tupac Shakur’s death here
