Myanmar, Democracy and the Election


Firstly, I would like to introduce myself as a Thai person which was born under democracy. The ways we can know about Myanmar is newspapers, books and websites. The world looks at Myanmar without an understanding, as well as some foreign democrats misunderstand about Thai monarchy. I would describe shortly about Thai monarchy. It is the only way to stop the corruption and the dirty election. It is the only thing that is more powerful than the money of corruptionist.

Let’s see Myanmar. Sw Eden is interested in Myanmese history. I hardly study about Tabinshwehti, Bayinnaung and Nanda Bayin. They were about 500 years ago. That day, Myanmar has three races/clans Burmese, Mons (Peguans) and Shans. Right now they are three plus one which is Karen. The four powerful nationalist races and many other races in one country cannot be controls with democratic government.

I graduated from New York so I can argue that Myanmar cannot be like the United States. The origin of Myanmar is three powerful races which need to be free or to be over the others. There is no difference from the current Myanmar. Whenever Myanmar became democratic country, it would be split to be 2-3 countries. This is not what the Myanmese wants. For the United States, everyone moves to there to be an American. They are not the radical nationalists, because they are willing to be with other races. The movie, “Zohan” is exactly what I want to say. We can do whatever we want, but we must not disturb others’ liberty.

I repeat the words from a Myanmese who lived in Thailand, that is, the American cheer อองซานซูจี for Liberalism and Democracy, because they want to invest and take all the natural resources Myanmar has. Although this is not the voice of all Myanmese, and not what I had heard before from the mass media; this sounds most reasonable for me. Prof. Gregorek described about the symbol of Pan American Unions as junk food stores. This is true, we has Liberalism, Democracy and junk food stores. We has Capitalism, Consumerism, Materialism and Hollywoodism.

I am Thai, and it is not so different from American. Comparing between Thailand and the United States, we have Myanmese, Cambodian and Laos as Spanish-speaker refugees, and we have Chinese as the Jewish. Myanmese are not ready to be this way. All the ideologies I mentioned in the previous paragraph would create the need in the economy term. Myanmar has too less middle-classes, so the result of Capitalism would be the high number of criminals. The Capitalism deceived non-poor people that they are poor. This is the reason why Thai King teaches people about sufficient economy.

I cannot stand it if Myanmar would have a lot of criminals. Right now they are really nice Buddhists. Teenagers does not care to spend a lot of money or go to club/bar. They hang out by going to temple and walking around the pagoda. How about my country? The old people wonder if they found me in the temple or traditional theatre. For most Bangkok teenagers, all traditional and religious stuff are obsolete. Moreover, we have criminals, too. We are not serious because the number is not too high. Burmeses are more aggressive that Thais, so I do not want to imagine what Burmese criminal would look like after Myanmar became Democratic.

Although military is not the best procedure, I believe that it is better than Democracy for Myanmar. As a Thai person, I asked myself, what I do feel if Myanmar was a democratic country. I would love it, because Burma would not be longer near Thailand, but it would be Mon instead. On the other hand, if I was a Myanmese, I would pray for the government to find another system instead the military force to hold all clans as one.
