Support for Bora Touch

Dear Editor,

I cannot refrain from writing to support Bora Touch for his letter in the Post, September

1.

I have for a long time witnessed the way Cambodians blame their past lives for current

sufferings instead of blaming the past leaders and challenging the current leaders.

This belief in fatalism is, of course, very favorable for the leaders, but counterproductive

for society.

This belief, which could have been the reason for the decline in Khmer society in

the past centuries, needs to be changed.

Honest leaders should use their influence to change this by all means.

- Chan Sophal, Phnom Penh
