    Default Compare

    I have some question:

    "This generation is looking forward, not back, and compares Cambodia with other countries in the region rather than its own dark past."

    The comparison of a country to its past seems unequal. Shouldn't it be "compares Cambodia with other countries...rather than the Cambodia of its own dark past"?
