A drunkard. Heracles statue, from the House of the Stags, Herculaneum. (1st century AD)
ស្រាធ្វើអោយមនុស្សស្រវឹង តែស្រវឹងនិង <<អំណាច>> គឺស្រវឹងខ្លាំង ជាងស្រាទៅទៀត Wine makes people drunk. But, “power” makes people drunk even more.
American Congressman from California, Dana Rohrabacher directed the question to Gnoun Ngel ងួនញ៉ឹល, our country’s law maker of CPP suggested the current prime minister Hun Sen of our country to retire at around the same time he's retiring. He said Hun Sen should not ក្រាញអំណាច hold on or cling to power for so long.
Mr. Gnoun Ngel ងួនញ៉ឹល responded to Mr. Rohrabacher stated the election laws warrant to elect a prime minister when the party has won the election. Then Mr. Rohrabacher replied it has nothing to do with the election law. It’s very much based on ‘personal decision’ that Hun Sen should retire.
I agree with Mr. Rohrabacher. Retirement is a personal decision to act for the benefit of the country. If any individual hold on to power for so long that person is truly drunk with or addicted to power. Thus, the country continues to be corrupted and advances to nowhere.
