Do Not Touch A Hair Of Their Heads, Do Not Give Them A Drop Of Water

Nevertheless, one must realize that change does not come spontaneously; it does not manifest itself without proper and clear leadership. If allowed to grow at its current pace and character, one might have to live with anarchy instead of the change that he or she so willfully expected. This is precisely the dilemma the Janatha Vimukthi Peramuna (JVP) today faces. The people’s awareness of changing political realities and the emergence of impromptu social media pundits and spontaneous beginnings of ‘movements’ are the very fuel a clever and inspired leader would not ignore out of hand. Commitment to a cause, irrespective of consequences and punishments that might entail such commitment is not sufficient to enact and engineer a change that we all welcome.
