Re letter from victor Guneseakara
The letter from gunaseakera highlights a very frank opinion that all
srilankans nead to address.Its very unfortunate that the ethos of the
sri lankan society both political/social and economic has been dictated
to by the leadership from colombo.
These people are products of schools that were originaly started by
the british colonialist with the purpose of finding a set of people
very subserviant to them who would help to exploit the general masses.
These production lines contnue to produce these black englishmen who
have no love for there country who are alien to its culture and continue
to play the subsevient role more so when they are children of converts.
Unfortunately the leaders who come from the lower classes automaticaly
gets carried away by this ethos.The change therefore neads to come from
the educational system .
I find it disturbing that the leadership of the country at the moment
cares more to what the international community says whether it be governments
or NGOs.The citizens of the country are ignored and the sovereignity
of the country is greatly undermined.
They find it difficult to forge alliances foregoing self in the best
intrest of the countryprevent corruption undermining the financial status
of the country etc.
In short the country is led by black englishmen who are products of
Royal, St Thomas's,St Bridgets etc They have proven beyond doubt to
be unfit to rule.
To me this is the core issue that we all nead to address .A change
in the ethos of these schools in the long term with emphasis of srilankanness
and a change of leadership on the short term to instigate the change
.I hope this letter will instigate others to participate in a critical
analysis of the grave problem that sri lanka faces.
