This is SO, SO distressing. I tried to contact some folks in Sri Lanka about this after the last incident. Nothing. They just don’t care.
I given this considerable thought. I have an explanation. Plain, dumb, stupidity.
These folks abusing the temple elephants aren’t cruel. Just mindless. Stupid. They don’t realize what they are doing. I kid you not.
In general Sri Lankans are not cerebral. I present MYSELF as exhibit #1 and in the scheme of things I am slightly above average. So, you can see the problem we face.
These folks are dumb. The elephants are more intelligent than them. I am talking about my folks, my people, my relatives. We are stupid. Please forgive us.
Sri Lanka is going to the dogs. The best thing that can happen is for China to occupy it and make it into a governed territory.
