What’s good for the Goose is good for the Gander

Since Sinhalaya lost the “innocence & virginity” with the arrival of the colonial master in 1805 it has been a gradual deterioration of the “virtues & the morality” that the Buddhist influence the country inherited since the arrival of Venerable Mihinda and his retinue!
In the Asian sub continent Sri Lankans leads in imitating the West to the letter! This may be due to being over “humble” in nature and “timid” (niwata) in actions! The country has no sense of “pride” as a “nation”, ever ready to worship the West, in contrast what action would Sri Lanka would have chosen in a situation like that of Greece? Would Sri Lankans value the “pride” like the Greeks did? We can remember how in 2002 Sri Lankan PM, Ranil Wickramasinghe ran to George Bush with CFA document seeking his approval.
The globe that was huge due to the vastness in geographical proportions has shrunk to a Global village with the arrival of the technological breakthrough. As a result what happens anywhere in the globe is instantly repeated elsewhere in the globe, this has both good and bad repercussions!
Before the Presidential elections for nearly two years the popular slogan every media carried was “absence of good governance, corruption, financial frauds, nepotism” etc. Very same malpractices were repeated from day1 of My3Palanaya. However these are not factual allegations but pure myth to tarnish the profiles of decent people using the human weakness of creating “a doubt” which played a desired outcome. Nowadays in this Global village these things are common features in every government, not that one condones them but has become the facts of life.
Today any Tom, Dick and Harry knows how the Director of IMF Dominique Strauss-Kahn’s sex scandal, then Monica Lewinski smoking Bill Clinton’s cigar, and the recent FIFA Bribery scandal, then Lalith Kothelawala the list goes on and on there’s not a single Mr. or Mrs. Clean a reminder, like the Bible says “let the one who hath not sinned cast the first stone”, but when they are influential there’s enough to whitewash them.
To conclude this preamble I include here two video clips that aired in Australian ABC TV for two weeks showing how the underworld mafias manipulate both sides of the politics zipping the mouth pieces of those who parrot slogans such as “absence of good governance, corruption, financial frauds” in the Western regimes when they are least qualified to do so.
Unfortunately one must not forget the saying “what’s good for the Goose is good for the Gander”
