Sri Lanka: A Dictatorship Of Morons & Frogs?

By Jagath Asoka

Dr Jagath Asoka

Dr Jagath Asoka

I am certain that most Sri Lankans are not happy with the current political situation. The crooks and frogs who were defeated and rejected are back as cabinet ministers, and the ostensible excuses given were: To make a stable government; to unite Sri Lanka against any imminent international pressure. I am certain that the world is not mourning the decline of dictators, and Sri Lankans just got rid of a “potential dictator.” However, now, it seems like Sri Lanka is on a path to dictatorship without a dictator.

The promises that were made just before January 2015 have disappeared without a trace; the numbers—promise to appoint only 30 cabinet ministers—that were flaunted were multiplied without any shame; intrepid, honest politicians who worked hard were pushed aside and defeated asinine, belligerent crooks and frogs were appointed as cabinet ministers. Who are the morons who appointed this cabinet? Our rotten politicians have created a system to maintain the status quo, a system that ensures their own survival and well-being; it seems like this “good governance,” “national government,” is just a façade for their own survival. The hoi polloi would kill, burn, and stab each other to make their politicians victorious, while sleazy, unctuous politicians clink whisky glasses, pat each other, and take bribes. Sri Lankans, when are you going to believe what you see with your own eyes?

Mahinda Anuradhapura 17 July 15What would have been the outcome if people had known what these politicians had concocted to maintain the status quo? It seems like people cannot win even when they have chosen wisely.

Do you expect these old crooks to resurrect themselves as Gandhis, Mandelas, and Lincolns? Well, it seems like you have to wait for another five years to kick the crooks and frogs out; but it does not matter, because cronies of these crooks and frogs will make them parliament members, and they do not need your consent. In Sri Lanka, democracy has a new definition: People elect representatives so that the elected representatives can appoint the defeated cronies to bludgeon the people. It seems like that we have chosen a dictatorship instead of a dictator, after listening to what we wanted to hear from them, thinking that they would keep their promises. They have put all of you in a monkey-cage and will run the circus for another five years until you feel dizzy—like fish caught in a tsunami—by their political prestidigitations.

Are there any Sri Lanka politicians who have demonstrated the ability to make bold, difficult choices; righted disaster of ethnic disharmony; fended off bigots who seek to derail the progress in economic, social, and ethnic issues? One thing is very clear: the morons who appointed this cabinet are political-eunuchs.

Soon Sirisena will meet with Obama, a pivotal meeting; how is Sirisena going to explain his new cabinet? Mahinda bribed his rivals. How do you explain what Sirisena-Ranil duo has done? An eleemosynary cabinet?

Soon, there will be manifold committees to investigate corruption, financial skullduggery, murder, rape, abduction, torture, etc. You do not have to be Nostradamus to predict the outcome of these committees: Real culprits will never be punished. Sri Lanka is the land of impunity, where politicians flout laws with gusto.

Sri Lankans today enjoy far greater personal freedom than when Rajapaksas were in power. But, it seems like a dictator was replaced by a dictatorship. Sri Lanka has made progress in ending the age of a potential dictator; but, is Sri Lanka, with Sirisena and Ranil, equipped to make difficult decisions, consult with other political parties and ethnic groups, and compromise, in order to come to a consensus: where are we heading? What are we trying to achieve as a nation? Don’t bloviate! First, pick up the garbage! Bloviation without substance won’t do much.

Now that we have seen what politicians can do to maintain the status quo, what are you going to do? You can reject a politician, but he can still come back as a cabinet minister to bludgeon you. What are you going to do about it? It is a historical fact that the leading personalities, not the inert mass, bring forth the liberating and revolutionary deeds of the world. The inner mass can only be prodded into activity by the demagogue. It is the individual who is the carrier of culture, highest virtues, or blackest villainies. We have seen this drama in Sri Lanka, too. Now, the question is who is going to counterbalance these incendiary personalities: the critical reason of somewhat intelligent, sober stratum of the population? Where are they? Watching sleazy tele dramas?

I am certain that most of you are familiar with the concepts of “the dictatorship of the proletariat” or “the dictatorship of the bourgeoisie.” Unlike the minority rule in the dictatorship of the bourgeoisie, the dictatorship of the proletariat was meant to expand democracy, not to reduce it. What is the meaning of this national government made up of 48 cabinet ministers—the dictatorship of morons—who were rejected by the people? Is this democracy? Is this the best cabinet that Sirisena-Ranil duo can offer? Do you honestly believe that these defeated politicians who were selected as cabinet ministers can sincerely serve Sri Lankans? What about those honest, intrepid politicians who worked hard to defeat these morons; what is their reward? Shut up! Do not disturb Yahapalanaya!

I have never seen a democracy where defeated morons get selected as cabinet ministers while the elected members of the winning side get pushed aside. Now, this is a new phenomenon: it is worse than two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. If you had your druthers, what would you do with these morons, frogs, and the clowns?

Our parliament is adorned by downright morons, frogs, and political-eunuchs. Two cheers for our national government: one because it allows morons, and two because frogs get rewarded! This national government—bludgeoning of the people by the morons and frogs rejected by the people—concretizes one of my long-held beliefs: We shall be governed no better than we deserve.

    Jagath,
    it is not easy to find good guys in today s lanka. So if they need to decide for a consensual rule – they have no other options than also giving chances to even higher corrupted men. But while being ministers, state ministers or as Deputies, they will have to face the court charges if the allegations levelled against are truths. In todays situation, I really dont think by cornering all the culprits, you will have a chance to continue towards the reconciliation. Besides, rulers also have to defend the nation before the internaitonal communiteis since the country is now permanently made as muerderous. If you would google – the name Rajapakshe will bring thousands of sites that would say his all war victory related abuses.

        Dr. Jagath,

        I think most people who voted and who have not voted for the clown Sirisena are shocked at the way the things are moving very swiftly in an un-prepared and un-disclosed destination. WHY???? The Big Question…is WHY is it happening like this????

        What I think is, the whole scenario from the Psychopath MR declaring an election, losing the election to the clown Sirisena and then again Sirisena allowing the Psychopath to come back to the parliament are all is a BIG PLAN. A sinister plan that the ordinary folks could not fathom.

        MR going and inviting the Jesuit Pope and then Pope landing in Sri Lanka and inspecting the land, clown Sirisena going to Britain and shaking the evil hand of the Jewish Queen of England without glows (strangely) tells something fishy signs.

        Let me explain to you as to why I call Sirisena a clown. Sirisena from the beginning trying to show that he is the human side of the Sri Lankan state and Politics which is filled with nothing but a bunch of mass murdering killer squad who run the state of affairs with many years of experience in criminal acitivity, loot of public funds and holders of PhD’s in lying through their posterior exit gateways. Sirisena is playing the clown assuming the general pubic and the citizens of this country to be the baffoons.

        From the beginning he showed or hinted that the removal of the thief MR is a hoax operation, a well co-ordinated and stage managed show blue printed by a foreign power/s with the consent of the two legged Donkey MR. Its an arrangement……a very convenient one.

        There is something going on behind the curtain and the whole drama of removal of MR and he is then being absolved of all his criminality one by one is indicating something really FISHY.

        Donkey Mahinda knows that he is in a dire situation with his many years of mismanagement of the country, its economy and its social order. Also, he made big mistakes in playing double games with the Zionist and the Illuminati powers who control the world from behind the curtains.

        The World powers (the Zionist cabal and the Jesuit led P2 lodge gangs) are fighting for the NWO plans implementation. So, MR Donkey tried to play not only double games but multiple games of SNAKE & LADDERS with his team of pol-pala drinking wild boars.

        What I think is he played too much into the Chinese hands and got caught handsomely to the Zionists by allowing the China to build a base in Sri Lanka. This happen to be a kiss of death at a time when the Zionists and the P2 Lodge/Freemasonic Catholic Church gangs in controlling the world power.

        To do damage control in winning the world power favours, MR played many roles and got entangled with finacial crimes, mass murder, created racist elements etc…just to keep the public attention diverted from knowing the truth. So, the wild boar team around him co-ordinated with the UNP/Ranil and Chandrika to lay out a plan to smoothen things.

        So, the team would have offered MR Donkey total impunity from all crimes for giving up power. It happened and now we the public (seen by the Political order like a bandicoot) have to swallow all their bunkum show televised and propagandized through the garbage Sinhala/Sri Lankan media as something usually happened great elaection victory…. Oh please!

        This is a well planned Zionist cum Catholic/P2 lodge ambush on Sri Lanka made by these scumbags who run the world with their wicked hands to keep things moving without a damage unlike the SYRIA/LIBYA/IRAQ etc…

        So, Sirisena is cunning politician like the rest of the comedy bunch of wild boars who can;t think out of the box and always comes selling the country to the Jews.

        To know more exactly on how the world is run BY WHOM/ BY WHAT/ and for what objective….WATCH THE VIDEO….IT WILL BLOW YOUR MIND AWAY…

        This video is recommended only for the serious thinker who seeks the absolute knowledge that you won’t find in the GARBAGE WESTERN/EASTERN ZIONIST backed media (CNN/BBC/CNBC/ABC/AL JAZEERA/ FOX etc)….

        Watch to know the PAST/PRESENT and the FUTURE of the World Power structure…

        Finally, all I can say is that the Sri Lankan state is in for a blackhole….that will suck in the entire country due to the stupidity of our WILD BOAR POLITICIANS…..ABA SARANAI!!!!

      Thanks for the write up.

      “Soon Sirisena will meet with Obama, a pivotal meeting; how is Sirisena going to explain his new cabinet? Mahinda bribed his rivals. How do you explain what Sirisena-Ranil duo has done? An eleemosynary cabinet?”

      The average IQ of Sri Lanka is 79, and therefore we need 100 Ministers. Most of our MPs and ministers have not passed the 10 th grade exam of General Certificate of Education, Ordinary Level. some of MPs can’t even divide, and they say 2/2 =0. The average IQ of Americans is 99 and you do not need 100 Ministers, unlike in Sri Lanka.

      From a bad dictator to a good dictator is not bad.

      People now need to reform the Good dictator.

      The good dictator took in too many bad crooks into his fold to give them a “second” chance.

      Will he keep the crooks for ever or dump them half way?

      [they will have to face the court charges if the allegations levelled against are truths. In todays situation,]
      Samuel Jayaweera you writing about Sri Lanka right for a moment I was thinking is this a fantasy land you were referring. “face the court charges” that all good but nothing happens after that I’m sure most of the criminals around the world love to have faced courts system and been Grilled by the CID and various investigative authorities similar to Sri Lanka. You are defending the indefensible as an example man with high morale’s & principles who try to ban prostitution come to a conclusion to keep the prostitutes happy he will sleep with them as a sacrifice. UNP has take roll of underlings to keep the pimp’s can carry on with the business so UNP can set up their own business.

    Dr Jagath Asoka,

    You have gone on a moral tirade to vent your frustrations and I understand how you feel.

    But an educated man like you ought to know that life has not been devised by morality: it wants deception, it lives on deception.

    Perhaps like many Lankans, I have travelled the world front to back and back to front and the people I’ve met with a personal moral constitution borne out of deep conviction I can count on the fingers of one hand. People are moral not out of conviction but out of fear of consequences/retribution/public-opinion. Even I, if find a wallet with $500 will hand it back to the owner with a flourish and make a song and a dance to garner all the kudos but if I can pocket $50 million without anyone finding out, well that’s another story. The countries that have even a semblance of “Yahapalanaya” are not inhabited by moral/righteous men but have well imposed rules/laws/regulations that compel them to act in certain pre-defined manner/modes for the greater good of the society. This is what SL “Yahapalanaya” now trying to do.

    People take cues passed on from above, the same people who robbed SL blind under Mahinda wont rob (or be allowed to) under Sirisena/Ranil because the culture is different. As strange as it may seem, some of the biggest crooks/murderers under Mahinda were ex-UNPers who willingly or unwillingly had to behave better under Ranil.

    People overwhelmingly voted for most of the crooks now appointed as ministers; Sirisena/Ranil have no choice but to work with what they have got to prevent Mahinda creeping back. One difference we must acknowledge, however ham-fisted they may seem Sirisena/Ranil have the best interest of the country at heart; they are not there to rob it blind.

    Let’s not jump to conclusions so early in the piece and give them time to see how things pan out. Although past history would suggest it’s extremely unlikely but we might be pleasantly surprised. I must say I am a little surprised how well Sirisena has so far outwitted Mahinda the best cunning/shrewd SL politician I’ve seen in my lifetime. How expertly he manipulated the very limited and poisoned options available to him to control the UPFA. Although Sirisena was vilified for giving him nominations, Mahinda had to have the second defeat at the hands of the people to cut him down to size. Imagine if Srisena had not given him nominations and he didn’t contest, what sort of a “Nugegoda Man” monster would be hovering over SL politics now?

    The day that the SL parliament is inhabited by only virtuous Ministers/MPs will never come. In the meantime let us see how well Sirisena/Ranil compel the utter crap that the people have voted and sent into parliament to act within the bounds of the laws of the land.

    What is important is not some impossible utopian ideal of making sure that all who come to the parliament are virtuous but that the utter scum of the earth the people (let us not absolve people from blame) vote and send to parliament are not allowed to break the laws of the land and held accountable. If crooks find there is no great benefit in getting into parliament they might even go away and find alternative sources of avoiding a honest day’s work.

      Following quotes are used by this man, who has traveled the world front to back and back to front, to defend the pathetic behaviour of Sirisena.

      “life has not been devised by morality: it wants deception, it lives on deception”

      “People are moral not out of conviction but out of fear of consequences/retribution/public-opinion”

      “Sirisena/Ranil have no choice but to work with what they have got to prevent Mahinda creeping back”

      “Sirisena/Ranil have the best interest of the country at heart”

    Jagath,

    To say that we the citizens are utterly disgusted and disappointed at the Machiavellian machinations of the Sirisena/Ranil duo is an understatement.

    Now to answer your questions, you ask “What is the meaning of this national government made up of 48 cabinet ministers—the dictatorship of morons—who were rejected by the people? Answer: There is no meaning. This is how government business is done in this thrice blessed country.
    You ask, “Is this democracy?” Answer: No. This is mockery of democracy.
    You ask “Is this the best cabinet that Sirisena-Ranil duo can offer?” Answer: Yes, because the IQ of the average Sri Lankan politician is far below average.
    You ask, “Do you honestly believe that these defeated politicians who were selected as cabinet ministers can sincerely serve Sri Lankans?” Answer: No. But they will sincerely serve themselves and their family. You ask,”What about those honest, intrepid politicians who worked hard to defeat these morons; what is their reward?” Answer: Here I must degress. There are no honest politicians in Sri Lanka. Period.

    Dr Jagath Asoka, you concluded aptly:

    “We shall be governed no better than we deserve.”

    The Sinhalese society has tolerated atrocities to Sinhala masses twice, and to the Tamil community for 67 years without much protest:

    They even cheered when innocent Tamils were massacred en masse in Mullivaikkal in 2009!

    You don’t have to go to all that extent: The society accepts false birth certificates, the parents and children accept unscrupulous teachers, who don’t do their job for which the society pays through the government, but they charge exorbitant private tuition fees from the very same students they couldn’t care less in the schools: So the children are taught that ethical values don’t matter, and this too in the school. Children do what they see the elders do.

    You would have noticed that honest writers like Kusal Perera and Shamini Serasinghe have given up writing much.

    The Sinhala society is corrupt to the core, and they have made Tamils, Muslims and others to follow suit.

    Who, or what will clean up the decadent society?

    Democracy consists of choosing your dictators after they’ve told you

    #Ranil proclaimed a revolution has begun.#
    When dictatorship is a fact, revolution becomes a right.
    England has run its empire with passion filled tentacles not logic and are yet

    Sorry like Sonia of meddling big neighbour its Sobitha and the kurumittas

    Good one Mr. Jagath! Please translate and publishe in Sinhala newspapers to EDUCATE Sinhala Modayas who voted for these politicians, that their leaders are a bunch of criminal clowns who are having a great tea party at the Diyawenna Parliament at the people’s expense.

    Sirisena is Sri Lanka’s accidental President. He lacks education and analysis and does not know the philosophical debates over ends and means or that corrupt means to a goal however good will corrupt that goal.
    Sirisena, finally is a product the corrupt and foul political culture and seems quite unable to transcend the corruption that gave him cause to rise..

    Jagath Asoka,

    “48 cabinet ministers—the dictatorship of morons and frogs rejected by the people”..
    ..Is this democracy?..
    ..Is this the best cabinet that Sirisena-Ranil duo can offer?”

    All those may be valid , but what else would you expect Ranil-Sirisena to do at this moment ?

    You know it’s a close call, MR’s SLFP faction got 95 seats as against UNFGG 106 , so first thing first , you got to make Govt. stable .

    Some were defeated by MR supporters because they were pro-Sirisena , so taken back.

    What about victorious ? Wimal booruwansa ?? got highest Manapa from Colombo SLFP ?? isn’t he a moron , frog ?? perhaps more than that.

    We should be practical, politics in this country is something between life & death , okay .

    Cool down mate.

    What you have said here is exactly what most Sri Lankans are talking about, but however you should understand the actual situation.

    If you had noticed the election results, all the members who campaigned/contested in the UPFA along with Mahinda (Mahinda supporters) won the election whereas all the members who campaigned/contested in the UPFA along with Sirisena (Sirisena supporters) lost. Sirisena had no choice but to take them back through the national list. If you do not appoint these SLFP members as ministers, they will join the SLFP snubs and create chaos in parliament. The government will have a very hard time in passing any proposals if the UPFA rump gets stronger.

    Sirisena & Ranil wants to make sure that the UPFA rump and MR’s cronies will not rock the boat. He wants to stabilize his government to run it smoothly for the next 5 years.

    • 5

      Its the people who elected 83 UPLF MPs not Sirisena. Sirisena has no right to bribe them with ministries to support his leadership of the party. Sirisena should have let the UNP form a government with its 107 MPs and try to give the support of the SLFPers to pass any legislation.

      • 14

        This is the first time we have an SLFP president and an UNP prime minister/government. In such a situation, it is always good for the country if both president (including his party) work together with the prime minister and his party. If the president’s party becomes the opposition, it is difficult for the prime minister to run the government.

        Here, during the election, MR and his cronies conspired to make sure that all the Sirisena supporters in SLFP to lose and they lost. It is impossible for Ranil-Sirisena to run the government with only UNP because the SLFP members will obviously join with Mahinda’s SLFP snubs and the UPFA rumps to create havoc in the parliament and make the government to collapse. They will never allow to pass any important legislation to solve the national issue.

        What Sirisena-Ranil is doing right now is necessary and important to govern the country peacefully.

          Sorry, there was a SLFP president and a UNP prine minister goverment before (Chandrika/Ranil) which lasted about 2 yrs. I doubt the present partneship of president and prime minister will last that long. There are far too many unsuitable and undesirable characters occupying seats in the parliament for this partnership to succeed. MY3 and Ranil should identify them, deny them party nominations to them, select decent and intelligent candidates and call for fresh elections.

          Sirisena became the president by backstabbing Rajapaksa and at the same time leaving the SLFP to get the support of the UNPers, JVPers, Tamils and the Muslims. He has no moral right to become a SLFPer and bribe the SLFP MPs with cabinet and non cabinet posts. But according to Nimal Fernando “life has not been devised by morality: it wants deception, it lives on deception”.

      well this is pathetic!
      Why did Siriena give Mahinda Jarapassa and his cronies nominations to run and lead the SLFP campaign in the first instance? CBK would have refused. But Sirisena is not a man who knows the meaning of LEADING FROM THE FRONT and setting a BETTER EXAMPLE..

      He is a back stabber, and leads from the back! Sirisena does not know how to lead his supporter to do the right thing for the country, so instead he bribers people with cabinet posts and violate every principle of good governance?! What a jerk!

      So, we can also assume that there will be no investigations of the corruption of the Rajapaksa siblings and sons because Sirisena is scared they’ll rock the boat!

    Dr.Jagath Asoka
    Sadly ours is not a “Winner Takes All” democracy. A decade old dictatorship cannot be changed at a stroke, especially when 48+% of the electorate still voted for the dictators. In the Utopia where you live, the new President/Prime Minister could have filled their cabinet with candidates of their choice, but given the numbers, that would not have lasted. Even with the little they have won, we should rejoice at the international respect that has returned to our nation. Perhaps with a bit of patience they might prove their worth to the electorate, win more votes, and meet your expectations.

    If the Govt succeeds then all is well but if it fails we will back to the glorious stone ages of the Balangoda man and the hybrid Lion Man.

    Jagath – Frogs are harmless creatures that occupy a niche in the environment that is useful in many ways. You really should have found a better comparison to fit the “morons” who you are trying to describe.

    As a nature lover and an admirer of frogs, I object on their behalf!!!

    Samuel Jayaweera : Just because (I tried but never got 1000’s of sites) it gets 1000’s of sites as you bogusly claim, is President Rajapaksha to be blamed and faulted for saving this nation, uniting this nation and developing this nation to what it is today?

    It seems ungrateful spineless people of your ilk, living overseas after having “denounced” their motherland are the only people commenting or saying such things about someone else’s country!

    There is a distinction that has to be made. The humble frog is a protected species. The venomous toad represents all that the Rajapaksas stood for and did. Bensen

    We have morons as voters who are used to a subsistence economy.

    Whether it is agriculture, health or education, the voters are used to these hand outs.

    I don’t care about the 50 minister cabinet as long as these buffoons are sidelined and Ranil can deliver on reconciliation and on the economic front.
