Looking back into world history, nearly all of the small countries had been under the colonial imperialists at one time or the other. They fell down under the oppression of the civilized capitalist imperialists and the uncivilized fascist imperialists in some way or the other. Then, the characteristics and values of a country were lost. During the warring periods most of the countries lost their Independence due to the aggressive occupation of the imperialists. The lost Independence was regained after fighting against the intruder imperialists with bravery and at great risks of their lives, through patriotism and nationalism. In regaining Independence, those who occupied other countries by force were not willing to abandon it, hence the need to achieve it with zealous efforts and great care. At the time of giving back independence, the colonialists wanted to put in place restrictions, bindings and control. Even if they had to give independence to a small country without restrictions, they adopted a policy of “divide and rule”, by sowing discord and ill-will among the different national races with a view to destroying their unity and strength. Accordingly, signs of virtues cannot be seen in the souls of the imperialists. Again, in the post war and in the post-cold war they tried to enter the international arena in the form of neo-colonial imperialist. Whether old or new, they will continue to seek their own national interests. Now, Myanmar is a sovereign independent nation without any restrictions and global influences. All Myanmar citizens can enjoy the fruits of Independence. But, undeniably Myanmar had been left with the evil heritages of colonial rule. Evil heritages are none other than differences in opinion and disunity among us, the national brethren just after gaining Independence. According to the current political situation in the world and Myanmar’s current conditions, we must make sure that all Myanmar citizens can enjoy the fruits of independence. To saveguard our sovereignty and independence, all national races should make concerted efforts to understand each other’s traditions and cultures and learn to live in harmony and peace. In addition to that, we must constantly monitor the dangers of the neo-colonialist so that we can safeguard our Independence and Sovereignty forever.
