ျမန္မာႏိုင္ငံမွာ ဒီမိုကေရစီ ျဖစ္ထြန္းေအာင္ နည္းမ်ဳိးစံုနဲ႔ လုပ္ေနၾကတာ အားလံုးအသိပါ။ တဦးနဲ႔တဦး တဖြဲ႔နဲ႔တဖြဲ႔ မတူကြဲျပားတဲ့ အျမင္ေတြကို ဒီမိုကေရစီ ရႈေထာင့္က လက္မခံတတ္ပဲ လုပ္ေဆာင္ေနၾကလို႔ မျဖစ္သင့္တဲ့ ကိစၥေတြ ျဖစ္ေနရတာပါ။ ဘာပဲျဖစ္ျဖစ္ ျမန္မာႏိုင္ငံဟာ အေႏွးနဲ႔အျမန္ ဆိုသလို စစ္မွန္တဲ့ ဒီမိုကေရစီ (ဒါမွမဟုတ္) ဒီမိုကေရစီအတုကို ခံစားရလာေတာ့မွာ ျဖစ္ပါတယ္။

ဒီမိုကေရစီကို အစစ္အမွန္က်င့္သံုးတဲ့ ႏိုင္ငံဆိုရင္ အစိုးရကေရာ ျပည္သူေတြကပါ ဒီမိုကေရစီက်င့္ဝတ္ကို မျဖစ္မေန လိုက္နာရပါတယ္။ ဒီမိုကေရစီ က်င့္ဝတ္ကို မလိုက္နာဘူးဆိုရင္ ဒီမိုကေရစီကို ဖ်က္ဆီးသူ၊ ကိုယ္က်ဳိးစီးပြားကိုသာ ေရွ႕တန္းတင္ၿပီး အမ်ားျပည္သူ အက်ဳိးစီးပြားကို ထိခိုက္ေအာင္လုပ္သူ ျဖစ္သြားပါတယ္။ ထပ္ေျပာရရင္ အဲဒီလို လူစားမ်ဳိးဟာ ဒီမိုကေရစီကို နားမလည္သူ ပါဘဲ။

က်ေနာ္ေရးလက္စထဲက စာတပိုဒ္ကို ဒီေနရာမွာ ၾကံဳလို႔ ေဖာ္ျပလိုက္ပါတယ္။
“ျပည္သူလူထုမွာ သတင္းအခ်က္အလက္မ်ားကို သိရွိေနသင့္သည္။ သို႔ေသာ္ သတင္းအခ်က္အလက္မ်ားကို ေဖာ္ထုတ္သူတို႔၌ လူထုထံ မေပါက္ၾကားေအာင္ လွ်ဳိ႕ဝွက္ရမည့္ က်င့္ဝတ္လည္း ရွိသည္။ ဥပမာ- လိင္ဆက္ဆံေဖ်ာ္ေျဖရာ  စီးပြားေရးလုပ္ငန္း တခု၌ အသံုးခ်ခံေနရသည့္  အသက္(၁၈)ႏွစ္ေအာက္ ကေလးငယ္တဦးအား ရဲက ကယ္ဆယ္လိုက္ေသာ သတင္းကို လူထုသိေအာင္ ေဖာ္ျပရမည္ ျဖစ္သည္။ သို႔ေသာ္ ထိုသတင္းတြင္ ထိုကေလး၏ ရုပ္ပံု၊ နာမည္၊ လိပ္စာႏွင့္တကြ ကိုယ္ေရးကိုယ္တာမ်ားကို မီဒီယာက်င့္ဝတ္အရ လွ်ဳိ႕ဝွက္ထားရမည္ ျဖစ္သည္။ တခ်ိန္တည္းမွာပင္ သတင္း အခ်က္အလက္မ်ားကို အမွန္တရားဘက္မွ ရပ္တည္ကာ  အျမဲတမ္း ပြင့္လင္းစြာျဖင့္ ေရးသားေျပာဆို ေဖာ္ထုတ္ရဲမႈမ်ားလည္း ရွိေနရပါမည္။”
မိမိရဲ႕ကုိယ္က်ဳိးဆႏၵတခုေၾကာင့္ အျခားသူေတြ ထိခိုက္နစ္နာသြားမလား ဆိုတာ ႀကိဳတင္စဥ္းစားတတ္တဲ့ အေလ့အက်င့္ေတြ ရွိထားဖို႔ လိုေနပါၿပီ။ အျခားသူေတြ ထိခိုက္နစ္နာဖို႔ ရွိမယ္ဆိုရင္ ဆင္ျခင္တတ္တဲ့ အေလ့အက်င့္လည္း ရွိေနဖို႔ လိုအပ္ေနပါၿပီ။ မိမိလုပ္လုိက္တဲ့ ကိစၥအတြက္ မိမိမွာသာ တာဝန္ရွိၿပီး တာဝန္ခံယူရဲတဲ့ အက်င့္စရိုက္ေကာင္းေတြလည္း ေမြးတတ္ဖို႔ လိုေနပါၿပီ။

ျမန္မာျပည္သူေတြမွာ (အစိုးရလုပ္မယ့္သူေတြမွာပါ) ဒီမိုကေရစီ က်င့္ဝတ္ေတြ လိုက္နာတတ္ေအာင္ ပညာေပးဖို႔ အစီအစဥ္ေတြ တိုးခ်ဲ႔လုပ္ေဆာင္ရပါေတာ့မယ္။
ပို႔စ္တင္တဲ့ <> ကို ေက်းဇူးအထူးတင္ရွိပါတယ္။ hein နဲ႔တကြ က်န္သူေတြကလည္း ဒီလိုအျဖစ္မ်ဳိးေတြ ေနာက္ထပ္ရွိလာရင္ ေဖာ္ထုတ္ေပးၾကပါ။


အခုလို ေရးျဖစ္သြားတဲ့အေၾကာင္းရင္းက ဒီလိုပါ။

ရုတ္တရက္ေတြ ့လိုက္ရတာတစ္ခုက အသက္ ၈ ႏွစ္အရြယ္သာရွိေသးတဲ့ ကေလးတစ္ေယာက္ပံုပါလာတယ္။

ကေလးကမ်က္မွန္ေလးနဲ ့။သူ ့ပံုေအာက္မွာဘယ္လိုေရးထားလဲဆိုေတာ့ ကန္းျပီ တဲ့။ ကေလးကို ေျပာရက္လိုက္တာ။
ေအာက္မွာပံုကို  attach နဲ ့ထည့္ေပးလိုက္ပါတယ္။
လူၾကီးခ်င္းရန္ျဖစ္တာ မေျပာလိုပါဘူး။ သူတို ့ဘာသူ သတ္ခ်င္သတ္။ဘာလို ့အျပစ္မရွိတဲ့ကေလးေတြကို လိုက္ျပီး အခုလို ေစာ္ကားေနရတာလဲ။

အဲဒီမွာ Leon <> ဆိုတဲ့တစ္ေယာက္က ဘာျပန္ေျပာလဲဆိုေတာ့

i dont care anything. not even about their children.
if u care so much, open an orphan house and raise the kids there.

ရင္ ေနာက္ကႏြားကလဲဒီလိုပဲျဖစ္မွာပဲ
i hope u heard about this proverb. i believe things will be the same to their generations. his daddy’s job is bitchy, the offspring will become the same.
so i dont care whoever says. i’m even happy to hear that.
သူက ဒါေတြၾကည့္ျပီးေပ်ာ္ေနတာတဲ့
ကေလးလုပ္တဲ့သူက အျပစ္ရွိေနရင္ေတာ့ က်ေနာ္မေျပာလိုပါဘူး
သို ့ေသာ္ဘာမွမသိနားမလည္ေသးတဲ့ ၈ ႏွစ္ပဲရွိေသးတဲ ့ကေလး ကို ခုလို ေျပာဆိုခ်င္းကိုေတာ့ ျမန္မာလူမ်ိဳးတစ္ေယာက္အေနနဲ ့မလုပ္သင့္ဘူးထင္ပါတယ္။
ႏိုင္ငံတကာမွာလဲ ဘယ္လူေကာင္းကမွ ဒါမ်ိဳးေတြလုပ္မယ္မထင္ပါဘူး။

ဒါေလးကို နမူနာယူျပီး အသိဥာဏ္မျပည့္၀ေသးတဲ့ ၁၀ ႏွစ္ေတာင္မရွိေသးတဲ့ ကေလးေတြကို စာနာသနားၾကပါ လို့ ပဲ က်ေနာ္ေျပာခ်င္ပါတယ္။
မေက်နပ္ရင္လဲ လူၾကီးခ်င္းပဲ ကိုက္ၾကပါ။ကေလးေတြကို ဆြဲမထည့္ေစခ်င္ပါဘူး။
မိခင္တစ္ေယာက္ထဲကေန အရက္သမားေမြးႏိုင္သလို၊ပညာတတ္ေတြလဲ ေမြးႏိုင္ပါတယ္။
၁၀ ႏွစ္ေတာင္ မျပည့္ေသးတဲ့ကေလးကိုေတာ့ မတိုက္ခိုက္ၾကပါနဲ ့။
