It is unlikely to ever happen, BUT it is worth a thought.
There is, of course, a basis for my provocative thought. China is said to be slowly gobbling up whatever bits of Sri Lanka it can — starting with the strategic harbor in Galle. So, China sure has an incentive, though even they may decide that Sri Lankan people are a lost cause.
The political situation in Sri Lanka is untenable. It has been neverending intrigue and infighting for 30-years. The people are fickle too. They vote in a party and within 6-months start to hate the party they just put in power. They really are like kids. I hate to say this but we haven’t acted like adults in the last few decades.
Hence, the need for colonization AGAIN!
Yes, 200-years of continuous colonization appears to have left a mark. We seem to require discipline instilled by a foreign power.
You can just see Sri Lanka under Chinese rule! They will stop all this nonsense. They will the economy back on track. Make it safe for tourist.
Yes, I know it is unlikely to happen, but it is something to dream about. A placid Sri Lanka with no infighting.
