What a sad state of affairs are we living in Sri Lanka?
Nagananda Kodituwakku keep proving our judiciary is conjuring with Executive Branch in crucial constitutional issues. Most members of our legislator are a bunch of spineless. And most of our Director Generals are always waiting a call or a letter from the Secretary to Minister or Minister himself to do even the right thing. Our so called civil society members, since 1948, like Nirmal Dewasiri or Nalin De Silva believe they have fought hard and still fighting hard to further the interests of our people and nation. However though, the Auditor General of Sri Lanka, Gamini Wijesinghe, says our island is in a deep debt crises, and it is being worsened since seventies. Now the measurable debt amount, he stipulates, is over half of million rupees per person. It is depressingly sad and make reasonable people angry. What is the long term solution? Different administration for another five years? May be give the power to JVP this time?
Our President yet again let the Ranil to get away with his own agenda becoming the Minister of Law and Order. We all know that this happens despite the fact that Ranil himself facing grave allegations about his wrongdoing into the Bond Scam. And his other two members of same criminal enterprise are in prison. Listen to D.E.W Gunasekara, the chairman of the Bond Commission, explicitly saying Ranil is the mastermind of this scam. It is hypocritical to take a neutral stance saying he is innocent until proven otherwise. It is such blatant.
I guess, we ought to realize few things by now about our governing module since 1948. Have we managed to develop our country to be ‘the Peal of Indian Ocean’ or ‘The Land Like No Other’ as the slogans our Tourism Development Authorities constantly uses to promote Sri Lanka? That is despite the fact that they cannot even build a single functional toilet and maintain it’s services places like in Horton Plains or keep the places like Muthurajawela out of Garbage from their own Minister John Amarathunga, Minister of Tourism.
Our career politicians have always looked to survive their five year term. Naming and shaming happen always, one political party after the other. As Nalin De Silva rightly says, politicians have managed all these year just giving false promises to people. And when they fail on those promises, the people are given more false promises. And these false promises keep them afloat until next election time. One guy who clearly understood this is Prabhakaran. He had once said that Sri Lankans remember things only for a while. May be it is just the tropical heat, but it does not matter, we ought to break this dehumanizing chain for the sake of our Mother Land and its future. For your children and for the sake of our mother nature.
Max Webber says nation-state is a result of actions conducted by passionate individuals. Nation states are not built by career politicians who only get busier closer to election. In this outset, we had to realized that best empirically proven governing model in today’s world exist in China. Not in places like US or UK any longer, neither in Scandinavia. Look at the Trump or Brexit. They are the results of democracy. As D.E.W Gunasekara says our country has no savings to pay for our teachers in schools or to pay hospital bills, yet alone to invest money to build our infrastructure.
We shall soon welcome a passionate individual to lead us. There is a guy who loves our country and has a vision for the country. It is a fact that all the bad done to build a stronger and prouder nation shall be forgiven. Look at the example of all western nations and their infrastructures. Most of them built by Kings. And the exceptional US was built out of fear for them. No loans are bad loans if used for long term strategic investments. No killing is criminal if the intention behind to do so was to undisturbed development of nation.
Protection of the dignity of our sovereignty shall never be compromised by the false idea of idealism. I wish all of us to have strength to vote for a passionate individual in coming election.
