  1. Sri Lanka’s population has increased four times since independence, but not the knowledge or skillset.

    Sri Lanka has assassinated far more talented leaders and intellectuals than creating or valuing talented people. The country has set the dangerous precedence. This has been an unofficial constitution for the political leaders and media personnel to fulfill their petty desires. The western powers can easily undermine people like me through poor and foolish Sri Lankans. The western powers have been encouraging developing countries to increase their population in the name of religion and democracy without increasing their knowledge and skills. The western powers make sure that the people fight among themselves with limited resources. This makes easier to impose western interests by buying poor and uninformed people.

    Ranil Wickremesinghe can not save the country. Here is my experience during the good governance government.

    I was in Sri Lanka between 2015 and 2017. This is what they did to an intellectual who spent most of his time in libraries. In 2015, they laughed at me during my speech for the position of Vice Chancellor at the University of Colombo. I gave a speech on how I intend to raise the standard of Colombo University by collaborating with the National University of Singapore (NUS). They shouted at me ‘this is Sri Lanka not Singapore.’ In 2017, a foreign puppet who didn’t even pass GCE O/L sprayed pepper spray into my eyes and robbed my laptop, Australian passport, and smart phone. I have a witness. I identified the culprit and lodged six complaints with the Sri Lankan police, but the police did nothing. Not a single Sri Lankan media outlet reported the incident.

    Ranil, Gota, Sumanthiran have blocked me from their Facebooks. This year Gota has blocked me from his Facebook, after I mentioned that banning chemical fertilizer is not a wise move without having enough organic fertilizer and adequate training to farmers. I also wrote them to run the both farming parallel, first year 10% organic and 90% chemical, second year 20% organic and 80% chemicals and so forth. I told them to have a ten years plan to establish organic farming, but they didn’t like it. The Sri Lankan politicians and media personnel dislike intellectuals due to lack of knowledge. The western powers are keeping them in dark with the help of India in the name of democracy. This is why it has waged Asia’s longest brutal civil war for decades and became the Asia’s first bankrupt country.
