  1. Sri Lanka’s population has increased more than 3 times since the independence, but job opportunities have not increased as much as the population. So, poverty will cause the crimes and corruption to increase, especially during the pandemic. When people are hungry and have nothing to eat, they will not follow Buddha, Siva, Jesus or Allah.

    The West invaded other parts of the world for reasons to be on top. South Asia is not militarily strong enough to invade others. Its only resources are human resources, but it has failed utterly to utilise the people. Use the people to increase the wealth of the country or control the population; otherwise poverty and crimes will continue to increase.

  2. Since the 1970s China has increased job opportunities by making China as the world factory. It also controlled the population to make sure that people have enough jobs, shelter and I other nfrastructure facilities such as high ways, adequate train, bus and air transport systems, schools, universities and shopping malls.

    But South Asia has failed utterly to utilise the population. It has failed to make sure that people have enough jobs, shelter and infrastructure facilities to make people’s lives better and easier. Indians just believed the West and thought Mother Teresa will take care of their poverty. This is the difference between Chinese and Indians.

    Why do you think the South Asian political leaders import expensive car for themselves but not modern tractors for farmers? Because they continue to keep South Asia as a market for the Western products. The South Asian leaders are fulfilling the Western leaders agenda. They don’t worry about the people’s needs.

    • The Westerners cannot isolate me, or keep the billions of South Asians under them without the help of South Asian leaders.

      Currently, a Tamil family’s hardships have been exposed by the Australian political elites and media to deter people from coming to Australia illegally. However, they have been covering up my hardships as a writer. I have been making awareness of the Aboriginal Australians’ and refugees’ hardships. They simply do not want anybody questioning their rapes inside of the Parliament House or how they treat the First Australians and refugees; especially they hate Asians questioning them. I am constantly isolated by the government’s disinformation. The Australian political elites have been destroying me because of my ethnic background. However, I am wise and talented enough to enlighten the world, especially the developing countries.

      Between 2003 and 2008, I have lifted awareness of the reality of the Australian outback while Australia was fighting in Iraq. In 2008, the Australian Government deleted my citizenship without a legal proceeding to leave me out on the street for making awareness of the Aboriginal, Torres Strait Islander People’s and refugees’ hardships. I could not even defend my case through a lawyer, because the government hoodwinked the entire country. When I reached out to the international community the government silently reinstated my citizenship without an explanation or apology. Thirteen years have gone, but justice has not been served. Since 2008, I have been spending Christmases, and my birthdays on my own because of the government’s isolation tactic based on disinformation.

      The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing. Edmund Burke.

      I have an Australian business degree and postgraduate education in human resources management. On top of that, I have read more than 300 books to expand my knowledge in world history, human development, the global economy, and international affairs. But impossible for me to get a professional job or rent an apartment. The security guards are constantly following the Tamil family wherever they go. Similarly, wherever I go the politicians’ hidden hand so-called ‘intelligence officers’ follow me and spread disinformation to keep me in isolation. On top of that, the government is constantly monitoring my emails and phone calls to keep me in isolation by blocking some of my emails and phone calls, if these emails and phone calls are deemed to be inappropriate to the government’s isolation tactics. I do not have a criminal record, but I am in isolation because good people do not speak up.

      The Australian Government has everything within its disposal to undermine my credibility. I am aware of my opponents. I have developed my knowledge to fight a good fight, at the same time I am aware of the risks that I am taking. Everything was taken from me due to my writings. I was living in shared accommodation and ended up having coronavirus in July 2020. I wrote two letters to Prime Minister Scott Morrison and sent those letters through registered post. However, no reply from the Prime Minister’s office, notably the government is too busy fear-mongering the public about me. However, nothing will stop me from doing noble things.

    Australia is not like Sri Lanka. Politicians cannot arbitrarily deny people their legal and human rights without recourse. The legal system simply won’t allow it. And unlike Sri Lanka, most judges are not corrupt or pliable. I don’t know what avenues you have pursued or what activities you have engaged in, but your allegations ring hollow.
