As far as we are concerned we don't care a f*c* about ethics. All we want is to undetmine the state. We have tasted media power - to promote treason, disloyalty to Burma and balkanisation repeatedly. Of course we are blind to the vilest colonial legacies. Rohingyas and ethnic chauvinism that never existed during the days the kings.
We traitors of Burma like to believe that Burmese kings are bad. following the line of the coloniser.
We know nothing about the bloody history of kings of England. We know nothing about the torture chambers of Europe.For we are not intetested in history.
We don't understand the connection between history and politics.
We don't like intellectuals.
We are media thugs hell bent on malaigning the Burmese parliament, government and President -and Tatmataw ( Royal Army in strict translation, not Burmese army as we and foreign media report)
Government has the right and authoriy to get rid of this form of low life Western culture.For us graffiti is wonderful, just our cup of tea, the height of our artistic finesse. We don't know any thing like Goya, Picassso, Michael Angelo etc etc. Blah blah blah. We don't care about Chopin, Mozart blah blah blah. We want lowest of the low culture of the West.That is democracy. That is freedom. Above all we enjoy our right to censor whilst protedting government's efforts to vontain matrtials that can corrupt public morals particularly the youth.
And we rserve the right to publish ar*ehole Aung Zay's opinionated, jaundiced articles that consistently prove to be utter rubbish, his prejudices and expression of ignorance.
Media rule, OK?
