Birth anniversary of L.H. Mettananda: The ‘fanatic’ who was a visionary

If we are to paraphrase the words of veteran journalist D.B. Dhanapala the word ‘fanatic’ is the cheap epithet which sums up the invaluable contributions of anyone who spearheads a revolution without reward, engages in battle without booty and experiences no fulfillment despite enthusiasm.

America took nearly one year to free Japanese-Americans after the WW II : Irrefutable facts about Internee Camps in U.S.

The administration of any country trying to throw stones at others should look at skeletons in its own cupboards before speaking out. The United States of America, perhaps, with its three century old record, is the last country that could open its mouths about human rights or humanitarian considerations. We are not speaking of the times of British colonial expansion into America when they ousted the French. That was three centuries ago.

Letter from America: The Question of Minorities – 2

The term illiberal democracy was first used by Dr. Fareed Zakaria (of CNN’s GPS program) in a 1997 article in the Foreign Affairs journal. By this he meant a governing system in which, although elections take place (a necessary requisite for democracy), citizens are cut off from knowledge about the activities of those who exercise real power because of the lack of civil liberties; it is not an 'open society'.
