Ko Paw,
I became disillusion with what is happening right now in blogosphere among Burmese bloggers.
I want the younger generation to be united front for the evil regime, however what i have found here is fighting among each other.
I am writing this comment to you as, you are among the few bloggers who inspire me to continue writing blogs, and although you are young, you exactly know what you are writing for.
Sincerity as you rightly says is most important attribute for all of us who want to see the truth prevails.
I hope, all of us should forget about personal fame and gain when our ultimate goal is liberation of our motherland, and the future relies upon the younger generation.
So far, Burmese middle class are only in Singapore of significant number,and proven to be effectively moving forward from No Vote to Cyclone Nargis Relief action.
Hope to see united new generation of intellectual leaders to grow more and more by days.
regards,
Sit Mone

It seems hard for you to accept the fact that Singapore is a success story although it has its own short comings. But most of its shorting comings are structural and the leaders there cannot do much with that.

Singapore is not Taiwan, nowaday Taiwan, back then Formosa island inherited a lot of the top of the creme of the Chinese intellectuals, professionals and business elites when KMT forces evacuated to that island. They give head start for Taiwan. Taipei city is as big as or bigger than the whole Singapore island, the former has more population than the latter since their inception or independence. So they are structurally different. Demography? Taiwan has some pro-Japanese aborginies and some Chinese muslims ethnic minorities, apart from that they are mostly Han Chinese.

Singapore is not Hongkong, which has the protection of British empire, which has the vast hinterland (mainland China who share the same ethnicity and heritage). Again Hongkong has Kowlong island. Hongkong benefited from Shanghai's faded out days and the revival of Shanghai re-inforce Hongkong's status as the gateway of greater China. Apart from small population of Anglo-Chinese and Sikh, the Hongkong has homogenous population.

Singapore has different background, size, neighbours, demography and heritage. Managing and making Singapore successful will be as hard as running the vast Australlia or great America.
It is a small country, their own citizens have had baggage (low education as until now half a million of Singaporean citizens have only O level or less education without employable skills in the new knowledge based economy). With such constraints, and hostility of nations around them, it still managed to ride on the dragon tail (PRC China) or now it tries to ride on the elephant's head (Indian rise).

I think Singapore leaders have known what they want and what they have to do in reality. Every sincere and secularist leaders want eglaterian, liberal democracy but they have to know their own people' short comings. Or you will be alike a coach who wants to beat Manchester United, forgetting the fact that his own team do not have the calibre to win the Tiger cup.

Hey Anonymous,

You really argued like "2 cents" although you didn't put "my 2 cents" at the end of your comment. You gave us a lot of facts and arguments without considering whether they were relevant to the topic or not.

Ko Paw was not denying Singapore's sucess in economic terms. Ko paw was pointing out the same abuses of human rights and denials of democratic principles by the regimes of Burma and Singapore, and the biased viewpoints of the people who are using different measures and norms for the same issues. Have you got his point now?

You can present all the facts from an encyclopedic text in your arguments to show off. But, if all those facts are irrelevant to the topic or theme of the debate, it's very embarrassing. It makes you seem as a parrot who can speak out many things but doesn't understand what he speaks at all. Man, these attributes of your arguments really reminds me of "2 cents". Two of you are the same.

By the way, there is no "short coming" in English. It must be written as shortcoming. As I did to "2 cents", I'd like to suggest you to consult a good English dictionary whenever you are not sure about spellings and usages. Don't be like "2 cents". It's very embarrassing as well.

Dear Sit Mone,

Thanks for your comments and supporting my views.

Burma was also a parliament democracy before 1962. She was the most prosperous nation in the region at that time. But when U Ne Win seized power from a civilian government, our people didn't make a fuss about it. The people seemed to prefer stability and prosperity to freedom and democracy. As a result, our country was ruled by dictator after dictator, finally reaching the status of a poorest country in the region. When our people started to realize that democracy is essential to protect their rights and to bring down the abusive regimes, it was too late and too difficult to restore it back.

Now, Singapore is in the same situation as Burma in the 1960's in terms of political aspects. The Singaporean people are ignoring the importance of Democracy and Freedom in favour of stability and prosperity. They are trading their civil rights with economic well-being. If they don't give a fuss about Democracy and Human rights, sooner or later, they will face what Burmese people is facing now.

Well, of course, I care more about our people. As you mentioned, a lot of bloggers and youth leaders are residing in Singapore. Due to the economic well being, some of them will be mistakenly inspired by the Singapore's system. But this system is not the best for the well-being of the society as a whole. That is why I am painstakingly pointing out this important fact.

Besides, after a eight months of blogging and a year of visiting Myanmar blogs, I noticed something disturbing which I couldn't ignore anymore. It is that Burmese seldom express their disagreements. They seldom criticise others. Whenever there was a heated argument, they tried to stay out of it.

Most of the time, people will come and visit the blogs, and after reading the posts they will leave a few praising words or encouragement or greeting. That's all. They hesitate to give a different and frank view in fear of breeding the hatress, in fear of their view being seen by others as stupid. I acknowledge I was one of such people.

But, I am now wanting to change that situation. That situation is not good for progress and it is getting us nowhere. Praising all like is praising none. Similarly, agreeing with everyone is agreeing with none.

That is why I am deliberately raising some controversial issues and using provoking tones. I noticed apart from a few pro-junta readers and some English writing commentators, those who use Burmese language seldom shows their disagreement. If they disagree, they would rather be quiet insteading expressing themselves.

I know we need unity in fighting against this military dictatorship. But this unity must be built upon the strong principles, strong belief and strong common interest. We don't need the kind of unity built on the sand as it will collaspe at a nudge of gentle tide.

Sometimes, I welcome choas and conflicts in place of absolute order and monotonicity. That is why I am welcoming different opinions and debates. That is how the best of the best ideas comes out.

With best regards,
Ko Paw

Ko Paw,
Thank you for your reply.Your points reflected the actual situation of Burmese blogosphere, and attitude of our youth.When I have bumped into argument cum debate of your post between Anonymous and Ko Myo Myint Maung, I have found the positive aspects of both of them, as anonymous was a regular reader of your blog and her first comment was somehow credible. I am pretty sure that Anonymous has good intention and sincere love for Burma. At the same time I noticed that she has demonstrated her guts to stick to her points .
Ko Myo Myint Maung was well prepared respectable too. He too demonstrated superior knowledge of the subject and good language skills.Although I have sided him upon principle that I genuinely believe in, I have found both of them as very interesting example for other Burmese youth for having the guts to discuss and debate.
That is the reason I have encouraged both of them to write their own blogs as current situation is not the time for us to waste more time without exact objectives and principals for future Burma.
There are thousands of Burmese middle class, who have knowledge and know -how, all of them spread all over this world. Unfortunately majority of them were silent supporters or some may be fence sitters as very few voice their opinion or actively participate in active leading roles.
I am fully aware that, most of the middle class in overseas are struggling for their own survival however, those who can squeeze out their time should come out and support the movement that is against the worse tyranny of this world.
Thank you Ko Paw for starting the right move from departing normal hi, hello,...way of blogging to more interesting and hectic way of blogging that may be definitely going to be criticized by those who may want to continue saying hi and hello.. however I hope to see the third generation of blogs that followed with action.
regards,
Sit Mone

Dear Ko Paw,

Every government in the world violates human right so some extent. But, the scope and scale of their violations are different. For instance, if we are to give grades to the governments by their degrees of human right violation out of 100, this may be something like Norway (2), Canada (5), USA (10), …, Singapore (50), …, Myanmar (90), North Korea (95), etc. Obviously, Singapore is not as free as Norway, Canada, or USA. However, in my opinion, the degree of freedom offered by it is “sufficient” for most of us – the Myanmar people working and studying here. Instead of more freedom, we can enjoy security, stability and prosperity. For those who opt for more freedom may choose to migrate to more free western countries.

Yes, prosecuting and jailing of Dr Chee and Ms Chee is unfair. But, just because of this, you cannot brand the Singapore government as a whole as “evil”. On the other hand, it has been doing many good things by providing its people good education, safety, and prosperity, etc. (unlike our beloved Myanmar government :-)

Your argument that Singapore could derail into chaos one day because of its dictatorship (as Myanmar did before) is interesting. But, in my opinion, such a scenario is very unlikely to happen given the good educational background and business mindedness of the Singapore leaders.

Regards, Ko Aung
