Consequences of Disloyalty

Welcome to class. We will checking out the consequences; that is the outcomes of disloyalty.


Consequences of Disloyalty

People whose words and actions are against the nation (or any group to which they belong) are disloyal. The consequences of disloyalty are very unpleasant.

Here are some of the consequences of disloyalty.

  • Under-development and national failure: If government officials fail to carry out government programmes (which are intended to bring national development), the nation will remain undeveloped and that aspect of national life will fail.
  • Being discredited internationally: When citizens of a country are disloyal, the country will be discredited by other nations. Reputable international organisations such as the United Nations will be unwilling to support such a nation.
  • Suffering: Often, disloyal citizens suffer for their own actions. For example, those who traffic in hard drugs are jailed, beheaded when caught.
  • Poverty: Disloyalty can result in poverty. When disloyal people get caught and are punished, they lose their sources of income as well as whatever they have acquired illegally. This in turn leads them to penury.
