All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.

(Article 1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in Burmese)

No one shall be subjected to arbitrary arrest, detention or exile.

Article 9:

Those who have the kindness of benefit for others

For the sake of living beings, do not relax their powers.

Though these holy beings bear a heavy burden,

They never put it down and dwell in discouragement.

*the Great Chariot Sutra*

Burma is known as a golden land made of several ranges (or ‘Yoma’ in Burmese) where thousands of tribal memories, wisdoms, religions, cultures and beauties of plants and animals dwell. The rivers, all of them are indeed important to the people and other existences, snake through these beautiful mountainous regions and flow from the north to the south where Indian Ocean is. The peoples, Burma has 103 ethnics, all of them used to be really generous and all they knew was to give.

Since the modern day’s dictators have systematically destroyed, now the golden land is famous for its narcotic trades, refugees, migrant workers and various atrocities and sufferings.

One day, we’ll be free again and the land will be again famous for its beauty.

The Second Draft Form of Constitution

The Framework

In order to establish a peaceful society in which all people indiscriminately to be able to live together, it’s time to consider a major reform in political thinking. This is my contribution for a new reform.
By this, I hope, all the differences can be united.

As this is a draft, there are rooms to be filled. There is a phrase – must be identified. It’s at the places where this draft has not yet described the detail of the concerned issues – such as the definition of the nation must be identified: what is the title of this nation?, what is its system – federal or united, etc?, what is Burma (if the federation is kept with the name Burma)?, what is the citizen of Burma?, etc.

In section 3 (h) how the candidates have to campaign for the elections is mentioned. There will be no real campaign based on the influence of wealth. The federation must bear all publicizing of candidates so everyone who has intellectual competency can enroll for elections.

The Constitution of (The United Peoples of Burman, Chin, Kachin, Karin, Karinni, Mon, Rakhine, Shan and All Others)

The Peoples and their territories

1. The people are identified.
The peoples are the peoples of Burman, Chin, Kachin, Karin, Karinni, Mon, Rakhine, Shan and All Others living in the same lands.

2. The lands of these peoples are identified.
The lands of these peoples must be named as The United Lands of Burman, Chin, Kachin, Karin, Karinni, Mon, Rakhine, Shan and All Others; in short, The United Lands.

3. The locations of these lands are identified.
3a) The land of the Burman is …
3b) The land of the Chins is …
3c) The land of the Kachin is …
(The location of every land must be written down. All islands in the seas are also identified. The seas or oceanic territory of the United Lands is also identified.)

The lands are also described as States (or whatever people want to).

4. The location of the United Lands is identified.
The United Lands are located at the west of Southeast Asia, neighboured by Bangladesh, China, India, Laos and Thailand.

Section 1

a) Lefts or rights, conservatives or progressives, fundamentalists or reformists, the involvement of party politics must be marginalized. No party will directly involve in the national politics. It must be individual practice.

b) Factional design in practice is the device that let all the differences to meet at conflicts.

c) Factional designs, including party democracy, must be fixed or reformed time to time to make less confrontation among the public.

d) Thus, the integrity, character, ability and experience of individuals must come before politics. There will be no factional grouping to involve directly in the national politics. Individually, everyone’s belief is acceptable and must be protected.

e) It’s acceptable that the parties in struggle or strangling each others in the intellectual battlefield but public must not be divided.

f) To make this, public must not involve directly in the party manner. And no party will directly involve in national politics.

g) Thus, this system will not make the cabinet of ruling party and shadow government of opposition party. (The past has proved how the federation was fragile to be divided by factions. The region is also coping with factional politics.)
