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.

Ex-CBS Reporter: Spineless Media Bosses Eroding Our First Amendment





Media freedom is necessary. Cutting ABC budget might not mean cutting budget on free media. A recent development on media reports Aussie anti-terror 'gagging' bill: 'Shambolic,' reminds 'black comedy' should not include other issues but only on terrorism exclusively. Then it's acceptable for the moment. However, this Australian rules can't affect global media. Australian domestic activities on terrorism will not be covered by Australian media, then world media will not have much information although there will be other means.

Restricting media is not controlling media. Controlling a particular issue (domestic terrorism) is not controlling entire media. Media freedom in all other issues should be maintained. A healthy nation is a well-informed nation, with no misleading media controlled by a particular organization.
