  1. Wise people learn from others’ mistakes, average people learn from their own mistakes, but fools learn from nobody, they don’t even learn from their own mistakes. President Gotabaya Rajapaksa is daydreaming to develop Sri Lanka as a developed country while the opposition parties’ leaders are following India and the West to fulfil their own political agendas, even though India’s literacy rate is well below Sri Lanka and the West’s interest is keeping the developing countries under them. Unfortunately, history is repeating itself, because fools never learn.

    South Asia didn’t have a post independence strategy to utilise the largest population, it still does not have a strategy to come up other than pleasing the West. South Asia has more enemies inside than outside. Impossible to educate those dangerous minds while they have unwavering blessings of the West. The Westerners love South Asia, because they can keep two billion South Asians under them and also have the ability to use South Asians against China to keeps their world dominant power. Please note: South Asia can not compete with the West, China or Russia.
