Myanmar's National Spirit: In His (the late Aung San's) Own Words

If you are puzzled or dismayed by the display of nasty, vandalistic and immature national spirit of Myanmar football audiences, including Crony-Thief Max Zaw Zaw who chairs Myanmar Football Association and all the social media neo-Fascist Bama, it's encoded in the Bama public psyche. 

60-plus years of national independence have not enabled the Bama to evolve from the Kiplinesque children of the country's neo-feudal, klepto-fascist patriotism. 

I am glad Aung San was killed when he was killed. He didn't suffer the pathetic public! 

Here is the late Aung San in his own words who had nothing in common, ideologically, politically or intellectually, with his vanity- and hypocrisy-soaked daughter. 

A speech by the late Aung San given on 13 July 1947 (6 days before he was blessed to death by the assassins so as not to deal with the country's post-colonial rubbish bin). 

"Take football, for instance. We the Burmese get excited when our team scores first. If we score a few additional goals then we don't feel like playing our best, thinking that the victory is assured. But when we are about to lose or draw towards the close of the match - and when we become convinced that we can't turn the looming defeat or draw into a win then we begin to commit all sorts of nasty fouls. 

This is our Bama football spirit! This is what is called lacking any 'sporting spirit'. But we the Bama like to flatter ourselves by viewing this lack of sporting spirit as something positive, like 'we are a very strong minded and proud people'. You know what? That's just a misplaced popular pride. 

The national spirit of the Bama is utterly misplaced and misdirected at things unworthy. When it comes to things and issues that really matter the Bama have proven utterly useless. The Bama are prone to engage in fraternal or internecine fights. If we keep behaving this way nothing will be gained or accomplished. 

This type of Bama spirit needs to be eradicated."
