A Godfather’s Last Stand

By Sarath de Alwis

Sarath de Alwis

Moral character is assessed not by what a man knows but by what he loves” ~ Saint Augustine

What is happening today is obvious. The Rajapaksa Family Monolith existed with the active encouragement and nourishment of a parasitic ‘Priestly Class’. The ordinary folk were cowed into silent acquiescing.

The ‘brothers’ thrived with the praise and applause of a loyal base that quietly dwindled with increasing economic pressure. A narcistic tyrannical rule cannot survive solely with the ‘Ape Hamuduruwane’ trickery. Without the passive acceptance of the people the edifice must crumble.

The 15th century French jurist Etienne de la Boétie called this phenomenon “voluntary servitude to tyrants.”

On the preposterous claim that he alone was responsible for winning the war Mahinda Rajapaksa demanded and received the voluntary servitude of a majority of the majority since the end of the war.

The people have decided enough is enough. A land where myth and legend obscured history, has finally arrived in the 21st century.

Young combative minds have carved out an enclave of reason and modernity in the heart of the old establishment.

Reason, tolerance, and diversity are flourishing. Once hibernating minds are active. After years of dull servitude to a rapacious family, the ordinary citizen has discovered the pleasure of living despite pain in queuing up for essentials.

The course of a social transformation is never clear. The path it takes is often unknown even to its initiators or the masses awaiting a change.

Only an alert people can ensure that it remains on track. What the people want is quite simple. For more than a decade they have watched the ‘Family’ deciding who gets what and in what quantity. 2015 to 2019 was an aberration where the political order changed but the entrenched system remained largely in its thrall.

The ‘Godfather’ is clinging on.

Speaking to the Daily Mirror Mahinda Rajapaksa has said ‘Masses are not protesting against me. But these protestors were always against me’.

Now, you may think that Mahinda Rajapaksa is cuckoo. He is not. In the world he inhabits, he is still the hero idolized and revered.

He is Sri Lanka’s version of the ‘Godfather’.

Around forty years ago, Mario Puzo American Journalist and novelist gave us the brutal yet likable villainous character of   Don Vito Corleone in his trilogy – ‘Godfather.’

Don Corleone was the head of the family. There was the closed, highly protected ‘blood family’. Then there was the ‘Crime Family’ with its wider tentacles that enlisted the politically powerful including Church dignitaries and ruthlessly efficient enforcers of the gangdom of New York.

Don Corleone presided over his complex conglomerate never doubting that he was loved and feared. by admirer and adversary.

Anybody who reads Mario Puzo’s ‘Godfather’ will get an accurate insight in to the mind of Mahinda Rajapakse.

It is the story of Don Vito Corleone the charming monomaniac who emerges from humble beginnings to occupy a preeminent position in New York’s flamboyant social world and its fearsome underworld.

This ‘Monomaniac’ has a captivating superficial charm. He is an inventive genius who can say the most ludicrous without batting an eyelid. He can utter the blatantly false, with absolute conviction.

He doesn’t hide his contempt for accuracy or truth. His behavior is egocentric. He has a distorted sense of consequences of his actions.

Love, pain and sorrow are essentially reserved for the ‘blood’ family. His commitment to the wider ‘crime family’ or his business family is demonstrably shallow.

Don Vito Corleone the ‘God Father’ is a strange human being.

Our Mahinda too is a strange human being. He genuinely believes that people love him.   His political gangdom – the Pohottu Party is quietly unravelling. The Redeemer Hero has become a liability.

Mahinda Rajapaksa will be remembered. History will record him as a leader who drove a sizable part of the population into a mad frenzy of counterfeit patriotism.

His genius was his ability to reengineer an ancient culture of tolerance into a belief system that served his politics.

What is happening to us has happened before elsewhere. W.H Auden in his celebrated poem “September 1, 1939” described the menacing mood of a Germany going mad under Hitler.

“Waves of anger and fear
Circulate over the bright
And darkened lands of the earth,
Obsessing our private lives. “

The young people in ‘GotaGoGama’ are now reclaiming their private lives. They have watched their parents obsessed with anger and fear. They do not want the ‘brothers’ to darken their young promising lives.

That is why Mahinda must go first. Under the dodgy and debatable claim that it was his sheer artistry that ended the war he made sure that the war paranoia was institutionalized. The war ended but continued.

Mahinda made sure that a majority of the majority remained in that maladaptive mindset. A nation was trapped in mind and soul.

#GotaGoGama is the beginning of a process that will finally unshackle the sovereignty of the people.

Mahinda distorted the idea of progress. Just look at the lotus tower that stands out in Colombo’s skyline. His chief apostle who handled the Hambanthota Port Project Priyath Bandu Wickreme told us once, that after an inspection tour of the Hambanthota port, Singapore’s Ambassador has told him “We’d better find ourselves another job”.

Hitler had just one Joseph Goebbels. Mahinda had a score of them. The idea was to make the lie big enough to take hold as soon as it is uttered. Then you repeat it often enough to make it true by common consensus.

The idea stopped working with the smartphone. Mahinda Rajapakse’s hegemony of the Sinhala mind is now history. When the young repeatedly chant Nanda Malini’s haunting melody about a son manacled in chains, they voice what W.H. Auden also says in his poem about the Nazi menace. “September 1,1939.

“Accurate scholarship can
Unearth the whole offence
From Luther until now
That has driven a culture mad.”

I was happy to see the Inter-university Students in procession undeterred by barricades with sharp needles hidden by plastic sheets. The nation’s young scholarship is on the march.

Mahinda must go. His ‘Sinhala-ness’ is a parody. His goodness is a farce. His Greatness is a cruel jest.

      “The idea stopped working with the smartphone. Mahinda Rajapakse’s hegemony of the Sinhala mind is now history.”
      I doubt this. Remember the “Covid hospitals in 24 hours” built by the glorious ranaviruwos? Only those with prior experience knew that these were prefabs that could be knocked together in 12 hours. But Rajapaksa acolytes saturated the social media with such lies. Then there was the feeding frenzy about Muslim Covid burials and the fallopian tube nonsense, both absolutely without scientific foundation but lapped up on social media by many of those protesting today at Galle Face.
      I am sad to say this, but the degradation of their lifestyles has prompted many of these people to protest. Where were they when Muslims were being degraded not long ago? Where were they when Tamils were undergoing many more privations than this ?
      A true Sri Lankan consciousness is needed. That, I believe, is a long way away. It will not happen as long as Mahanayakas call the shots. They are the real disease. Rajapaksas are the symptoms.

        Mr De Alwis,
        thank you as always.
        .
        Two and a half years ago, people (very same people) longed for Rajapakshes comeback and save the nation.
        .
        But today, the very same come forward to see them out of the sights.
        BUDDHGAMA MONKS keep on protesting today begging a GOVT free from Rajapakshes.
        .

        We need LAWs and provisions in the constitution – that the leaders should respect the wills of the public, when they ask them to step down, they should be able to respect…

      “When do w overcome the stalemate?”

      It took us 75 years to get here and it may another 150 years to get out of this mess provided we clearly understood how we get here.

      The racist crooks used competitive racism as their tool/investments to enhance their political position (as smart patriots) and total unearned wealth. The 1948 Citizen Act was the first investment. Hypocrisy and double standards helped them pull wool over people’s eyes. People/voters never seriously questioned the politicians and saffronistas who backed them.

      Here is another reason to discuss about hypocrisy, racism, double standards, discrimination, ….. and seriously consider urgent measures to reconstruct the nature of this state, and democratise it in the near future:

        SINHALA BUDDHIST PRESTINE JUSTICE ON DISPLAY!!
        Almost after 18+years that insane asinine is the cause of the Fiasco in this country, of no fuel, No Gas, No Milk Powder, No essentials and queues UNLIMITED and inflation 30+ % in 2 months.
        ALL BECAUSE THIS GUY SO EXONERATED BY THE SOPHISTICATED LEGAL SYSTEM OF THE COUNTRY, FELL ASLEEP AT THE HELM!!

    Very good writing Sarath de Alwis. Shame , that our present day education in the local languages, cannot produce intellects of this quality.

    While MR exploited the pathetic situation of our people, corporate big wigs are busy raking in the filthy lucre.

    For their cynical exploitation of the Rajapkse phenomenon everyone should watch yesterdays COPE proceedings on the Srilankan airline.

    Former telephone salesman and now high end shopping monopoly holder (Soft-logic Chairman) Asoka Pathirage and his side kick Hans Wijesuriya of Dialog (Malaysian mobile monopoly) appeared to defend Srilankan Airline ( Chairman and Deputy of the Airline) .

    These chaps had ordered some 20 plus airplanes just two days before the country was declared bankrupt ! I like to ask a few questions. I must say Harsha de Silva MP questioning Pathirage was most apologetic and submissive ( in front of big money !)

    1. What is experience Pathirage and Wijesuriya have in the airline business ?
    2. Are these two wheeler dealers also business partners, Dialog is the agent for Samsung phones which are sold by softlogic of Pathirage ?
    3. Were the planes to be bought on open bids or were a few agencies especially treated ?( huge kick backs planned ?)
    4. Are these two men dual citizens of any other country ?
    5. Do these two maintain foreign bank accounts and have they declared these accounts to our Inland revenue department ?

      You know why?
      He is a self proclaimed Sinhala/Buddhist and a Southerner. Therefore he has every right to be apologetic, submissive, cordial, supportive, helpful, …. to crooks, racists, war criminals, saffron brigade, big businesses, ……

      Well said and good questions as they may be atleast Dual citizens of UL, Singapore, and Malaysia!!
      why not make it statutory for all state and state owned corporations to ensure all those employed (Paid or Not paid immaterial) to declare their citizenship liabilities and their Financial Assets and Liabilities too including Bank accounts anywhere, operational or otherwise to the government and the Inland Revenue Department???
      Deepthi, you may end up in deep trouble, because the PM the ‘Messiah’ does not believe in Asset declaration, and has not filed any according to my information??!

      Dear DTG
      Ever since Mario Puzo wrote “Godfather”, the English language has evolved a new meaning to godfather and is very commonly used in a different context as well.
      In fact the Cambridge Advanced Learners Dictionary says it also refers to a “leader of a criminal group, especially a mafia family”, along with the older original meaning.

    Time for the village idiots to go. They have brought this country to its knees, and have acquired immense personal wealth and assets all over the world at our expense. They are miserable failures, who have let this country, and the people down. Nepotism, cronyism, unqualified and inexperienced people at the top must go. So do felons, crooks, and murderers. Nothing they have done has worked, the policies they implemented (for their own devious reasons) HAVE NOT WORKED.

    Time to elect qualified leaders, who have impeccable records, and experience to lead this sinking ship out of troubled waters. We have world class qualified economists, medical experts, agricultural and industrial experts, let them take us out of this misery, and let them operate without political interference from any party or politician.

    “He is an inventive genius who can say the most ludicrous without batting an eyelid. He can utter the blatantly false, with absolute conviction.”

    Mahinda Rajapakse did Donald Trump before Donald Trump did Donald Trump. The similarities are uncanny.

    Like Mahinda, the second-coming of Donald Trump will destroy Donald Trump ………

    NEWS: Thousand (1000) trade unions have joined the other protesters just to recite “Gota Go Home with Mynah and Kaputa” or “Leave Mynah, but Take Kaputa With You”.
    It is so easy for government and semi-government employees to become protesters, because, whether they work or not, they are paid at the end of the month. Protesters apply for “sick leave” to protest on the streets as “sick leave” doesn’t require prior approval or acting arrangement.
    Government doctors who apply for “sick leave” to protest on the streets, miraculously “recover” by 5 pm to be available for private practice.
    When schools were closed, teachers who stayed at home didn’t have any work or political issues. However, the moment schools re-opened, teachers applied for “sick leave” to protest on the streets.
    What is funny is, all those who are “too sick to work” can be seen protesting on the streets demanding “honest, ethical and responsible leaders”!

In last October a man who was nibbling the Central Bank for 10 years said all will be ok in six months. Ali should be handed over by the bodyguards to the Muslim Protestors to make an investigation in a people court, in parallel with Sinhala protestors court for Old Rowdy King.

    A very beautiful article. Ever since Mahintha manipulated Chandrika to become a PM I said the end has come to SL. An intution told me that he and his cronies will destory SL and he did it well and truly. He is obviosly sick or mentally warped due to his long period of self manipulation of his evil mind. His self interest, his only objective to make Namal the next president and to acquire massive wealth that could last for several generations made his sick. His state of mind got somehow tuned to say that he is always a hero and people loved him. The lies he repeatedly uttered to gullible sinhalese finally made Mahintha too believe his utter lies as truth. Only a few days ago he said that he is very fit and shortly before he was running and playing. What a pathetic state of mind. He cant even walk staraight. This is nothing but self hypnosis due to auto suggestion and blind belief like how the vulnerable men and women go into trance at temples and thovil ceremonies and some even end up with their money and chastity taken away by the kapuralas and poosaries. I fully agree the entire disaster is due to this narcisistic and grandiose Mahintha who systematically plundered the country using race and buddhism and a weapon to cheat the people.

      Black Lankan, the day this crook embezzled Tsunami Fund, was an eyeopener. But Silly Lankans loved him so much so, they decided to keep him in power, for two decades. Have you ever heard of house owner handing over keys to a thief ,who tried breaking into his house. As Knox said “immoral, cunning but stupid”. In SB’s mind they were only giving the keys to their neighbors house, thinking the thief will somehow not break into theirs, after done with neighbor. Do thieves stop stealing unless and until they are stopped.

      That is how the Sinhala Intellectualism works. Old Rowdy King said he would us the Tamils’ hands to prick Tamils’ eyes. That is why they made Tamilini to write a book against Tamils while she was dying with cancer which was induces in her prison times. Old Rowdy is in the process of interpreting the protest as LTTE re-surging against the Smart Patriots. Rowdy Rambo said this is only Diaspora’s game. Eventually they hope to use Sanakian’s name to turn the protest against Escobar’s administration in to a massive pogrom against Tamils. That is one of the reason Tamils are fearing to participate in the island wide protest. It is the International Governments’ responsibility to ask the Aanduwa that where is Tamils’ right to engage in peaceful protest. If they don’t want, they are doing only Abisheham and Aarathanai to dead Kathirgamar’s coffin who sacrificed him to thronging Royals by working against Tamils.

      I agree with the Judge. The Tamils have no business in protesting. Mind your own business. This is only for Sihala South. They voted for them they should get them out. Stupid MP wants to protest.

        Hi Kalay,
        In a good civilised country, especially a democracy such as Sri Lanka,
        “Freedom of expression is a basic right of every citizen!!
        In UGANDA, IT IS ENTIRELY DIFFERENT!! WHERE YOU HAVE ‘CAFÉ CEYLON’ ET ALL!!
        That’s called Monkeying and Aping, and not part of the civilised world
        Not a Privilege of a few or any one segment!!
        That Judge is the one ‘out of his mind’
        He should be sent back to Law College to learn once again, to interpret the constitutional and legal rights of citizens.
        Until he is fully qualified and returns to his judicial post, he should be on “NO Pay”!!
        He is a Synthetic Law officer, like the ‘Prince’, and should be stood down!!
        The MP knows what he is doing and knows his legal rights as a Law Maker and definitely not acting STUPID!!

    The scene at the very end in the final episode depicts the “Godfather” having a Nanthikadal Moment. He has a flashback of his daughter being executed, before collapsing in his chair. It reminds the reader of a certain fat pig, who was forced to watch his 12 year old son being executed before receiving a final axe chop.

    https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/asia/handed-a-snack-and-then-executed-the-last-hours-of-the-12yearold-son-of-a-tamil-tiger-8500295.html

    Those who wonder why a 12 year old was executed. Remember, fat pig forced other people’s children to fight in his fake freedom struggle. Those children carried cyanide capsules while fat pig hid in his luxury bunker, complete with Pajero and swimming pool. At the very end, fat pig pleaded with the SLA rather than take his own life.

    That the Sinhala masses have come out en masse in revolution against MR & GR (in spite of the hardships), shows that the last election results were rigged by the R’s. R’s were very assured of their win in spite of the popularity of the JVP-NPP. Can only happen in Godfatherland.

    “Those who wonder why a 12 year old was executed. “

    Thanks for taking time to explain why the little boy was killed.
    I got the message,
    1. Every time you write this story I believe you get a ha** *n ****tion and c*****.
    2. The psychopaths who were in the armed forces derived sadistic sexual pleasure from killing people and satisfy their fantasies.

    You should get treatment or ask the state to shut you in psychiatric hospital.

      Vedda,

      That is how war was fought in the past. Wipe out the entire generational line to prevent any successors. Your Tamil diaspora would have pushed Balachandran to become the next Prabhakaran. No doubt, he was already brainwashed. LTTE top leadership, including future leaders, had to be executed – the only way to put an end to the menace. These hardcore buggers could not be rehabilitated anyway, that is why they hid behind 100K refugees.

        “These hardcore buggers could not be rehabilitated anyway, that is why they hid behind 100K refugees.”

        Therefore Kamala and Shavendra made sure none of the 100,000 and 25,000 odd LTTE cadres survived immediately after the end of the war.

        “Your Tamil diaspora ………”

        Where the **** did you get the idea they are my diaspora?

        Go check youtube now Sinhala/Buddhist diaspora is very active overseas. They want Gota to Go Home, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mPbDMXrfAX0 in front of Sri Lanka High Commission in London.

          Veddah,

          What is your proof that Kamala and Shavendra killed 100,000 and 25,000 odd LTTE cadres? Did you dig out the bodies with corpses? Did Kamal and Shavendra call you on the phone to notify? Gotha gave job training to LTTE cadre who surrendered. You are just parroting LTTE propaganda and other lies on this website.

          Native,
          I don’t think Lester is capable of “a ha** *n ****tion and c*****.”
          It’s that type who pretend to be macho, but are actually eunuchs.

        Agree on terrorist misdeeds in totality.
        But that bunch had a “made in sri lanka” label too.
        In some countries they try to find causes of terrorism and resist being a psycopath.
        Have you heard of state terrorism by desperate majoratists and kleptocrats or are you a true Buddhist –made in lankawee ?
        Can you advise the Aragalya movement ?
        we dont not want to stand in a que while

        Tamil diaspora is your fear but they are not into dynastic politics but just out of touch..
        In some countries they try to find causes of terrorism and resist being psycopaths too.

        Have you heard of state terrorism by desperate majoratists and kleptocrats or are you a true Buddhist also made in lankawee ? I lean more from Japanese and white Budhists
        Can you advise the Aragalya movement ?
        we don’t not want to borrow or taint our moral .concience.
        I think we have lost financially and fear we may loose politically too.
