Universal truth about Politicians

An old country preacher had a teenage son, and it was getting time the boy should give some thought to choosing a profession.

Like many young men, the boy didn’t really know what he wanted to do, and he didn’t seem too concerned about it.

One day, while the boy was away at school, his father decided to try an experiment.

He went into the boy’s room and placed on his study table four objects:

a Bible,
a silver dollar,
a bottle of whisky
and a Playboy magazine

‘I’ll just hide behind the door,’ the old preacher said to himself, ‘when he comes home from school this afternoon,I’ll see which object he picks up.

General Aung San’s speech: What is politics?

What is politics?

Some of us have been going still, consciously or unconsciously, about the same old way of “dirty” politics.

But is politics really “dirty”?

  • Certainly not.
  • It is not politics which is dirty,
  • but rather the persons who choose to dirty it are dirty.

And what is politics?

  • Is it something too high above us to which we can just look up in respectful awe and from which we refrain, because we are just mortal clay in His hands and cannot do it?
  • Is it, as some charlatans, roaming occasionally about in distant nooks of our country, used to prey upon the credulous imagination of some of our people, the kind of thing capable of being set aright only by fanciful tales and legends?
  • Is it a dangerous ground which we must be wary to tread and might as well avoid, if we possibly could?
  • Is it just a question of “race, religion and language” forever, as we were once wont to say?

Renaissance of the Aung San’s speeches (English)

Renaissance of the Aung San’s speeches

 We decided to reprint our beloved Daw Aung San Suu Kyi’s father, General Aung San’s speeches because even the sight in written words or the voice of uttering his name “Aung San” bring back the tender memories in most of our Burmese hearts and minds and could remind us his farsighted, wise politically correct ideas and awakens the political consciousness. Although he died young; his thoughts, beliefs and advises were far advanced and even better than most of the Burmese leaders and Military Junta Generals.

People remember what he stood for: honesty and hard work, unity and discipline, and such homely virtues they talk of these as the ‘Aung San way’, the way they must, or should try to follow.

The only answer to Mugabes of the world may be a coup

By PAUL COLLIER

Special to The Washington Post

OXFORD, England — The government of Zimbabwe recently ordered foreign aid groups to halt their operations within its borders, thereby blocking the food aid that the United Nations funnels through such organizations from getting to the country’s starving people.

Earlier, the government of Myanmar issued a similar ban. Of course, when we say “the government of Zimbabwe,” what we really mean is President Robert Mugabe, just as “the government of Myanmar” these days means Senior Gen. Than Shwe, the leader of the ruling junta. In justifying the bans, each ruler harrumphed that outsiders should not be allowed to tell his nation what to do.

HARARE (AFP) — The Zimbabwe opposition said Monday that one of its lawmakers was in intensive care after being beaten up by President Robert Mugabe’s supporters ahead of an aborted campaign rally.

The Movement for Democratic Change said in a statement that the newly elected Thamsanga Mahlangu, a deputy for a constituency in the country’s second largest city of Bulawayo, “is battling for his life in intensive care unit after armed ZANU-PF militia attacked him yesterday”.
