One Prisoner of Conscience is one too many!

One prisoner of conscience is one too many!
 
Aung San Suu Kyi addressed on her acceptance of Nobel Peace Prize in Norway on 16 June 2012. At the opening of the ceremony, the host on behalf of the Nobel Peace Prize committee said, "Dear Aung San Suu Kyi, please come forward to give us a lecture. We don't have a gold medal because that was received by your sons in 1991 but I am sure that your verses to us today will be written in gold."
 
Aung San Suu Kyi was welcomed with standing ovation for about one minute before she addressed the audiences. The audiences include her majesty the Queen of Norway, the royal highness the Princes and honorary lords and distinguished guests. The verse most heartbreaking and well received with applause is "one prisoner of conscience is one too many." I presume that this verse has already been inscribed in gold as promised by the host of the ceremony at this time. The standing ovation lasted for about two minutes at the end of her speech. What a wonderful moment in time. Those who have not listened to the speech are strongly recommended to listen. The link is provided below.
 
 
My memory swayed back to the following blog article I wrote on 10 November 2005 in a Google group called Social Culture Burma.
 
The value of liberty starts fading for SPDC
'Life, Liberty and pursuit of happiness'...what a gracious privilege that people could enjoy in their lifetime. This is not merely a right for being American, for being British, for being Australian or for being Westerners. This is an absolute right for being human that we called it human right. Everybody has the same and equal to each other for the enjoyment of the right of life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. American Constitution guarantees this right and expressly included in its preamble. 
One cannot say that this right is the value and the way of westerners' style principle of democracy that is not suitable and it has no place for the people in Burma. The privilege of this right for the Burmese people is nothing less or nothing more to that of Westerners. Unfortunately, Burmese people are far far away from the enjoyment of this right because of the brutal regime of military junta. 
Recent declaration of SPDC for their intention to move administrative ministries to Pyinmana has caught many media attention. Some say that the move has its intention to deter in case of American invasion. Whatever it is, one thing for sure is that SPDC is concerned for its safety 
and its longevity, for other words, liberty for SPDC over and above to its citizen and taken for granted at the expense of oppression of its citizen has started to fade away. 
Once upon a time, there was a rabbit that was so paranoid and had taken precaution that what would he do if in case the sky were falling upon him. With the perception in mind the rabbit tried to sleep with its two feet up in taking prevention he thought he could lift the sky if it 
were falling when he was asleep. Unfortunately, when the rabbit was about to a sound sleep, a palm fruit near to the rabbit fell to the ground. Suddenly in fear of death, the rabbit got up and started to run at the same time shouting as 'run, run for your life, the sky is falling' so that the other idiot nearby animals ran right behind the stupid rabbit and made all the mess around. 
This is a fable written by Burmese scholar Dr. Htin Aung of Burma and we were taught in school when we were in our junior years. Thanks to the teachers who taught this fable to us. This fable is the exact reflection to the current move taken by the SPDC who is the replica of 
the stupid rabbit in the fable. 
By taking the step to move to Pyinmana by SPDC, it reflects that the value of liberty for SPDC starts fading. It is time for SPDC to get fully insight into the definition of the freedom from fear and to realize that how the Burmese people have destined to love and cherish the value of liberty, the right to life, the right to freedom of speech, the right to lawful association, and the right to choose its own democratic government.
