Thank You Ambiga For The ‘Violent Demonstrations’!
With these kind of Malaysians, no wonder there are those who still think that we are in the boondocks!
Let alone MP’s who continue to push for ‘greater demonstrations’ and proudly announce ‘biggest demonstrations in Asean’ as their great achievement. (we all know now what the Arabs think about what they did last summer)
Whilst some in government are focused in bringing stability and looking for greater investment opportunities within the country to bring in FDIs, others are more interested in telling the world that their sexual exploits are a conspiracy to stop their political ambitions.
Yet, so called ‘thinking’ Malaysians are quick to judge and think that in 4 years, they have reached political maturity when they put cameramen and special assistants to Parliament.
And when ‘Global indicators’ emerge, Malaysians clamour to condemn and criticise what 50 odd years of progress largely under the same ruling coalition.
Let’s be honest shall we, and call a spade a spade.
The latest release of Global Peace Index shows that Iceland is the world’s most peaceful country and whereas Malaysia ‘slipped’ two places, we still rank highest in the region beating Singapore (can you believe it?), Taiwan and Vietnam.
But here is the cream…we slipped largely due to Malaysia’s index for ‘violent demonstrations’ in which we ‘upped 0.5 points’ and our political stability indicators, in which we fared the same. The other factor being ‘Press Freedom’.
Funny though that they mentioned this, because there seems to be no shortage of Media available criticising leaders and government (hell, even all sorts of accusations and revelation of proof that are funnily enough ‘only introduced in due time’ but never when announced).
So yet, with all these free uncontrolled media, Malaysia still ranks poorly in press freedom – for arguments sake, there is ‘Selangor Times’, Rocket -which is supposed to be controlled yet freely available- Harakah, KeAdilan, well the list goes on! (here I would suggest the Home Minster to simply give permits and licenses to all and let them see how long they can stay afloat in todays printing press environment)
Yet, with all the development and economic growth that our so called inept government is leading, some (we are told 300k people turned up in Bersih 3.0) Malaysians seem to think that their actions will have no repercussions because if ‘PR’ come to power, we will all be absolved.
So thank you those who wore yellow on that day, and to a woman who thinks that she is the ‘voice of democracy’ in Anwar’s footsteps (oh, Thanks Ambiga for promising to do something but ended up doing nothing for a well known Gender discrimnation case – in which you announced in a press conference – but don’t worry, we didn’t think you will anyway), and to those of you who eat, sleep and drink ‘demonstrasi’ – this time around, you contributed directly to our slipping two rungs.
The business I am in now? well, it has Canadian interest, and I hope that they are just as reasonable as most of us who know that all this demonstration and voices of discontent is just from a group of disgruntled people who seem to think that there will be no repercussion at all taking matters to their own hands.
For those who can think rationally, analyse the past election results carefuly and see for yourself that Malaysia’s election process is a true democracy, where people who have never proven themselves in community before 2008 are in Parliament now.
Yet when they have the opportunity to debate and voice their concerns in passing of laws, choose to ‘walkout’ when they cannot argue objectively.
IMHO, there is NOTHING wrong in Malaysia, its the people who have their own agenda.
