No time to lose for the good of the country

Nobody is foolish enough to risk their lives for a pointless exercise. As we cannot get something for nothing, we have to earn a living at least for our basic subsistence needs.
There is nothing wrong with aiming high. In today’s world, everyone dreams of a society that encourages upward social mobility. High ambition propels us into action, but only a few are found to be able to swing into high gear in pursuit of their dreams. In this respect, the widely-held belief that we are all created equal is not flawless.
It is safe to assume that in every country across the world there is a silent majority. It is important is to listen to their voices, which in fact reflects the real situation of the country.
People elect governments to serve their interests and the wellbeing of their own country, in the hope that parliamentarians stay in touch with the grass-roots. Nobody likes being ignored by their elected representatives.
General Aung San, a national leader who was assassinated by stooges kept by colonialists, once stated that the government should be blamed if the majority has to eke out a miserable existence. No leader in his right mind will turn a blind eye and a deaf ear to their plight.
Thus, all governments are responsible for indentifying unvoiced frustrations of the silent majority, especially of those who stay away from protests. It is not a good idea to sweep disruptions under the rug, which will sooner or later become a bump that is difficult to handle.
The time has come for the powers that be to come together and flex their leadership muscle and try to decide what should be done for the good of the country.
