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.

Taiwan, China & Australia

Well, if China and Taiwan ever to unify again, I’d rather accept the Taiwanese government as the legitimate government and the communists as rebels. Whether Taiwan wants independence, its government is democratic and elected by the people and this can be applied to the mainland Chinese too even though they cannot vote. Perhaps the Taiwanese ought to welcome them to opinion polls and this will make them to taste the values of democracy. At least, the people of Hong Kong can do so as they know very well about what democracy is – they would particularly be interested in the Taiwanese freedom as their freedom is vanishing.

Also the Australian government needs to approach Taiwan as democratic alliance. Australia needs to sustain democracy in the region and promote it, particularly wherever China attempts to keep its influences against the free world. It must not be the way of Australian policy regards to Asia-Pacific region to succumb to the communists’ disease of depleting natural resources for becoming a super power in the world and sustaining human sufferings, abusing human rights in its own territory and Tibet and supporting dictators where energy is its interest. The Labor government must distinguish its values regard to workers and labor rights against the Communists who have been abusing labor rights by under valuing its workers.
