Why are your posts always so negative? You seem to be a person who feeds of negativity.

Instead of questioning the Forum “ Why Were Sikhs So Strong 200 Years Ago And Not Now?”, why dont you question yourself, why am I so negative?

Well the answer is very simple you are comparing Trained guerilla Fighter sikhs with todays civilian sikhs.Those Sikhs were raised as trained fighters,unlike today's Sikhs they knew they have to be in army .They had 100% faith in Guru and most of them were not afraid of Death.They were surviving in very harsh conditions of Jungles .Now compare today's situation Sikh boys in cities are raised with liberal girly environment ,main aim of sikhs all around the world is too earn lots of money and then find a girl to marry .

How could you expect today';s sikhs to be tough in these circumstances?

true so whats the best way to reverse that

im not being negative i like to point out problems and talk about solutions

you ignore the problem then it will get worste

problem today is why did sikhs get buchered in india and guys like kps gill live like kings and badal run punjab

in the west in places like uk why do sikhs get attacked by pakis and in the states why do sikhs get scared and run to the barber to cut their hair cause some redneck called them osama and their basketballs dropped so they run

200 years ago white englishman went fearlessly to their deaths in battles all over the world.

200 years ago even Frenchmen didn't fear death.

Trouble is now...they, and we, have tasted life's little luxuries. We've all had a taste of the good life. The richer one becomes....the more one is used to comforts.....the more complexes and fears he develops. The theory is that progress and material wealth makes one soft. For that reason, many religious groups have the concept of forsaking material possessions and modern luxuries. We Sikhs don't do that. We're not supposed to cut ourselves from society as hermits. We're supposed to function productively in any society we find ourselves in. being productive of course brings material wealth. So....its a vicious circle then. We either live as monks in monastries and get hard again....or we accept the luxuries of life and the softness that comes with it.

200 years ago a man was lucky to get to the age of 40. By 25 he knew he little time left in this world anyway and so wasn't afraid of dying a couple of years earlier. Today, even at 85, we still think we've got 25 years of a good comfortable life ahead of us. Its not as easy to embrace death.

with standard of living increasing it is understandable at the same rate people getting softer, no heat no electricity life was different back then

but with sikhs standard of living isn't the reason, look at 80's 90's when sikhs were being slaughtered most sikhs didn't do anything and allowed sikhs to get killed

the united states a sikh gets called osama and their to scared to go out again and wanna cut their hair

pakistanis bullying sikhs in england

LOOK AT ISRAEL THEY ENJOY A HIGHER STANDARD OF LIVING THEN SIKHS YET THEIR SO STRONG

I BELIEVE SIKHS ARN'T RAISED THE WAY THEY USE TO BE WITH THE SAINT SOLDIER MIND

THATS WHY THEIR SO SOFT AND BULLIED

"Pakistanis bullying sikhs in England" ? When and where Yuba City Singh ? I live in England and thats not what I've ever seen. The opposite in fact. What you will hear depends on where in England the Sikh lives. In areas to the north of London, where the muslims are the overwhelming majority of 'browns'...it is true that some of the Sikhs feel 'bullied' or up against it when it comes to muslims. But in the south (including London), where the largest number of UK Sikhs live, it is the other way round. Please don't believe everything you read here from sikhs with clear anti-muslim prejudices.

As for Isreal. How strong are they really ? The world's strongest power stands besides them and bankrolls their military arsenal and ensures they have a green light to bomb, murder, demolish and assasinate at will. This is a funny sort of 'strength' indeed.

Forget consumerism or stupidity or those other reasons. They are partly true. But the reason we are not strong is that Sikhs have lost too many wars. For a people who made their name in wars, we dont have the ability to win one. Hell, we dont even have the capacity to understand how we won the wars that we won let alone figure why we lost wars since then. When people lose wars, they begin to lose social cohesion and trust in one another. This leads to a free for all where everyone is out to get what they can. And that is where we are today.

oh you don't understand anything about israel and don't forget during cold war soviet uniion stood by palastine

lets see israel's strength because clearly you don't know anything about middle east

1967 the arabs ganged up and attacked israel from behind it was pure surprise attack, yet israel kicked the day lights out of these arab country's and took up a whole lot of land in the process and now these arab's who out number the jews in israel 90 to 1 are crying wanting what they lost in the war back also the united states didn't do anything during this war

israel fight and target the terrorists

arabs fight like cowards and attack inocent women and children

the world doesn't give israel a green light cause the hippies always cry and everything you know about the middle east you learned from hippies

2006 example the coward arabs would shoot rockets into israel targeting hospitals and schools and these terrorists would hide behind inocent civilians lebanan

israel started dropping bombs were the rockets were comming from and cause the arabs fought liek cowards and hide behind civilians the hippies started crying telling israel to stop, israel even warned the people before they bombed to leave so they can kill the terrorists

israel had to pull out cause the world kept putting pressure on them, don't tell me they get the green light

and america doesn't give weapons for free to israel actually israel buy's them just like saudia arabia buys weapons from the united states

siksh can learn from israel the fact is kids in israel are raised to be soldiers and do three years in the military
