Yes. That's the IN thing nowadays.
Call it brainwashing. Or chronic conditioning. All of us have some levels of fixed unshakable belief of certain matters.
Religion has a lot of sentiment. It is afterall a fixed, unshakable belief of the particular teaching and values that you subscribe to.
Luckily, most of the religions, at its truest form, to the best of my knowledge, preaches good values.
So we are kind of sorted, in that sense, regarding the sentiment we have.
However, recently we have another huge sentiment of the politics of this country.
Zero sum game seem to be the norm. Sadly, and unfortunately, it seem to be an acceptable norm.
People jumping guns, difficult to be convinced the other way round against their sentiment.
How many of us are actually fence sitters really?
Some one organises a rally - the other side would immediately question its legitimacy, its logic and its reason. Sometimes, the objective of the rally is not even read or believed in:
Organised by Ambiga= anti Melayu.
Just wondering what if one day she decided to organise Marathon?
Najib announces car reduction in 5 years (plan). Responds = Tipu! Tiru!
Just wondering how many would actually shout the same thing if Anwar took over and said the same thing?
It is depressing isnt it, oh okay, at least to me, when the bulk of the things we heard and read are all about sentiment.
Where's the true debate that we elect our know-best people and pay them big bucks to do for us?
No? the election is not fair = no need to debate.
No the opposition are Chinese = no need to debate, because this is Malay land?
I can go on and on about this for years, but luckily I dont have such long "High" tonight.
I would like to just drive home a few points.
1. Everyone who are talking about our country's future must DO a reality checked first:
NO BODY IS GOING TO LEAVE
OR ASK ANYONE TO LEAVE, THIS COUNTRY,
NO MATTER WHAT RACE ARE YOU OR WHO YOU VOTED FOR
2. Election is over. OVER.
There is absolutely no way you can drive an Arab Spring here in Malaysia where majority of people still have time to FB and a Pay Day to look forward to.
3. As a civil servant, and a fence sitter who has more weightage on the anti-BN side - (yes I admit),
I would actually PRAY for a CLEAR margin.
Just clearer than GE12, but less clear than 2/3rd.
Because the truth is, we have wasted a total of FIVE years politicking politicking and politicking, with no actual tough, true, fair, and non-populous decisions made.
BRIM is totally WTF.
Weekly rally is another WTF.
Also last but not least, Perkasa is also WTF.
Unfortunately, the margin in GE13 is super the razor thin. Are we going for another 5 years of politicking?
Rant ends. Thanks for reading.
