Do you live in a country where you can trust your government to play by the rules? If you do, count your blessings. People in Cambodia often cannot trust those in power, there have been so many ‘land grabs’ (see Country for Sale ).
So sad to read of the death of a young girl in a protest against land seizure (15 year old girl shot by security forces). So many good people in Cambodia trying to build a better society, still trapped a little by their history.
The most important internal issue in any democracy is not the economy – it is to make sure people can trust the police and the judicial system (see the work of Bo Rothstein if you want a bit more research-based foundation for that statement).
