Wouldn’t you agree with me? Everything they do seems racial-based or does not fit the agenda that us individual hope to achieve although their actions have been the catalyst for us to actually to think and act.
We had Semangat 46 in early 1990’s, then we had Reformasi in 1999, what happened? Nothing happened, it was good old BN and the people continue to accept and brood in silence. Then you had MGG Pillai, MKini, Malaysia Today and all the ultra vires elements yet nothing happened because in 2004 BN still triumph over us.
If you were thinking and acting for all this years, how far did it go, question yourself? Get real as you are the unleashed devil within yourself for everything else to prevail and survive for you own individual need.
Hey!!! I am not gloating about HINDRAF, but it is a simple fact that holds true that they are fighters for the under classed no matter how you seem to depict it because they are truly the voice for the voiceless in action.
Today, the main media is having a field day because HINDRAF challenges DAP on the Kampung Buah Pala issue which sits comfortably in the seat of the BN. Suddenly BN seems to be in their side, naturally for their own political gain, but the sad part of the whole affair is, you the so called public and bearer of justice, conscience and what is rightful will defend the opposition who is in control on what can be done, why it can’t be done, rule of law and the and endless parade of justification for your own dome. It is not you, who have been displaced, but some 300 villagers who had their ancestral home demolished.
We, the so called great minds can throw our words and mince it in a moment, yet again because you are not in their situation or predicament for a cause on humanity and conscience for the betterment of the society that only HINDRAF would pursue.
Balance and objectivity creates an idea where both sides are balanced, yet when we know there is no such thing exist in Malaysia for the society although it may exist for yourself, then you must realize that profound changes can only occur in a crisis to invoke the truth and conscience that lies in us.
HINDRAF is a crisis because it can go in either direction as long as the truth surfaces to assist the defenseless and helpless public. Whether it is racist, communal begs an answer based on your individual perception, as this is not an issue if you decide to act humanely.
Effective communication within ourselves requires not simply an understanding of the facts, but how those facts will take place in our mind for the public’s benefit. HINDRAF’s communication no matter how crude and bold it maybe, but it an act for a segment of the society that has been neglected far too long for its obeisance and obedience to lead a peaceful life in Malaysia.
Today, we all hope to seek a social reform that seeks for the truth and self criticism, yet it is only possible if individually we can decide what is humane and just.
We don’t have to descend into the world of the forgotten, to write, photograph, paint, sing, act, blog, video and film with anger and honesty that have been blunted by the parameters of traditional individualism but only by our act to act collectively.
The lines between artists, social activists and journalists have to be erased when we can actually act for a humanity cause without “much ado”. These lines individually diminish the power of reform, justice and an understanding of the truth for the truth will always be the truth. And it is for this purpose that these lines are there to dictate your action, or we will continue to live through another 100 years with a thought for the society.
As an individual, I try to think rationality is just and fair, not to educate you, but what good is it if the truth itself defies you and will not set you free for your own individual needs for your own perceptive that means nothing more than commenting on this article minus the action. You are the change that you desire only if you chose to be it for the society.
Blah! Blah! Blah!, another anecdote for your escapism. You chose how long this will persist until you can unite for the humanity it serves.
