It is neither democracy nor economy: 4th Episode of "A Tale of A Weak State with A Strong Man"

If Cambodia is still moving in the current path, it cannot avoid from devastating. It is just a sign of a "weak state under the control of a strong man with his patrimonial vein". Patrimony and patronage system like current Cambodia cannot move any further of progress, it is just a "ah kvak ah kven tale" in Cambodia literature.

A simple question for all Cambodian people to consider is: do Cambodians want to develop democracy or do Cambodians want to develop economy?

Some Cambodians might think that democracy is not important, economy and jobs are important. Or some might think that when people have good job and good family economy, the democracy will be easily developed. All these questions are moving around the debate by both the ordinary people, the elites, and the learned people.

But all these debates and questions are just the subversion from the reality. CPP understands well on how to subvert the attention of Cambodian people or to manipulate the them.

In reality, Cambodia has accounted neither economic development nor democracy enhancement. When, we talk about the democracy, the major has to respect the minor. But it is not like that because CPP's outspoken men will try to bully the minor SRP with many different political rhetorics. For instance, the PM had said this party is trying to victimize the major. When SRP proposes some collective concerns involving the nation, CPP will see SRP's proposal as non-sense or political oriented etc

How Cambodia democracy can be developed when the rule of laws and the check and ballance have been shied away?

On the other hand, how Cambodia can develop her economic when potential sectors such as agriculture, tourism and industry have never got any proper plan to develop in a sustainable trajectory? How Cambodia can develop its economy when this country is hugely depending on foreign aid. Previously, the government has showed its well done job in attracting foreign aid, but showed its inability of implementing the essence of the property laws, the corruption law, and the diversification of national economy.

Cambodia should change its approach from current dumb vision of moving no way to moving in an cunning way: to project the rule of laws for the nation such as property rights, corruption law; to develop economy of self-reliance; and to create the sphere of national unity by coordinating with all political parties, respecting and providing full freedom of speech, and accelerating the effectiveness of youth education etc

If Cambodia is still moving in the current path, it cannot avoid from devastating. It is just a sign of a "weak state under the control of a strong man with his patrimonial vein". Patrimony and patronage system like current Cambodia cannot move any further of progress, it is just a "ah kvak ah kven tale" in Cambodia literature.

Below is the letter from SRP's PMs who are trying to ensure that Cambodia has democracy.

Боль... На душе токмо одна печаль и огромная язва от предательства любимого человека!!! Прожили вместе пять с половиной лет, в законном браке четыре года, и оказалось, который я совершенно не знаю этого человека. он ушел... Тяжело осознавать, что теперь я - мать-одиночка!
