Basil, Gotabaya and Namal(moron) were the cause of MR downfall. But most of all MR belief in astrology, condemned even by Buddha. Only fools believe in this pseudoscience. A leader of a country should not be guided and make decisions on the basis of astrology. It was MR’s worst folly.
I remember how you accused and labeled people even as betrayers of the country supporting Rajapakse gang in election. Now you try to dilute what you did, I feel.
But it is appreciated if you unbderstand how Rajapakse destroyed the country at least by now on the otherhand.
Basnayaka, you’re still evolving from a wild moron monkey up to your own belief as you say yourself. That’s why you keep remembering your hate forever but don’t think of others also same as you. There’re people who already evolved into human beings who forget & forgive for the good of all living beings in this temporary periode of life. So, you must try to evolve 1st asap into their level, otherwise the very next big bang will send you back to monkey-hood by undoing changes you made so far…!
