Generally speaking, people in Myanmar are deeply rooted to Buddhist religion.
Myanmar people, though still poor compared to the rest of Asia, are devout Buddhist and have a high regard for their culture and tradition. It's best if they keep it that way.
Truth is, with the opening of their once-closed nation to outside world, Myanmar risks the onslaught of negative unwanted foreign culture and other foreign imports; that it needs to shield and protect itself from, so as to keep much treasured and highly regarded tradition, culture and religion of Myanmar people.
'Democracy, Freedom, and Human Rights' are just marketing terms used by "the Rich"/obscenely rich Capitalists from The West to sell their game, subjugating "the Poor" throughout the whole wide world, and milking them for everything they can.
In other words, Democracy, Freedom, and Human Rights are just marketing tools used by 'the Rich' from the West to sell their game, subjugate and milk 'the Poor' worldwide.
In fact, a mere fifty (50) Capitalist elites from the West have more wealth than half the world population, which is nearly 4 billions.
Speaking of Western News Media, one can always tell whether a nation is willing to bend over for the West or not. If they are, and they're complete tools, then ANYTHING they do would be covered up. If they aren't, then we get stories, through Western news media, about how "bad" and "mean" they are. It's all part of that same old, lame old Colonialist-turned Capitalist Imperialist trick!
When the West needs you, they call you a hero, and give you all kinds of honor. When they found you are not the puppet they want, then you become a criminal and murderer. Another Colonialist-turned Capitalist Imperialist trick!
Much thanks to USA, and its gospel of preaching and promoting the 'old goat Capitalism' by all means and at all costs, with 4400 nuclear arsenals and 800 military bases world wide among others, today, the world's wealthiest 42 people in 2017 had wealth equivalent to the world's poorest 3.7 billion people. The world's richest 1% own more wealth than the rest of the global population combined. 82% of the global wealth generated last year went to just 1% of the world's population. The three richest Americans have the same amount of wealth as the poorest half of the U.S. population.

Truth is Slavery, Colonialism and Colonization are evil things done by evildoers.
What do Slavery, Colonization, Colonialism, Capitalism, and Imperialism (that The West has practice now and then), have all in common? Because all these benefit The West a great deals. For instance, as in any sports and games one plays, if you are ahead of the game, that you found yourself in a much stronger position, and the others are weaker than you are; then what do you do? Would you play Offensive or Defensive game? Of course, you play Offensive game. That's exactly The West has been doing, playing Offensive game that benefit them the most out of the rest of the poor world, through 'Slavery, Colonization, Colonialism, Capitalism, and Imperialism', etc.
In centuries-long old Colonial era, when the world was under Colonial Western control & influence; nations/ ethnic groups in Asia, (as well as in Africa, North & South America), were committing atrocities against one another (brother against brother, etc), all because Colonial West pit one group against another, which is the the ploy (such as, 'divide & conquer, divide & loot, divide & rule'), that were regularly used for their own Western advantages; what they call it, 'Western Interests'.
It's all about 'Western Hegemony'.
