If you ask politicians in Malaysia, they will tell you that we are on the verge of becoming a developed nation or that the country is heading to the right direction.. They give you all the numbers and the statistics to support their claims. They will highlight all the data and the figures that Malaysia has achieved virtually all the standards of the small elite group. The pakciks and makciks in the rural areas of course would definitely agree with them, as holier than thou politicians. These unscrupulously species would not be questioned as they think know what the rakyat want. These kanpung people have for so long have been lied to , whitewashed, bluffed, indoctrinated and subjugated since independence. We don't deny that Malaysia has progressed well into the 21st century but to claim that we are of the way to becoming a modern, industrialized and developed is a farce. A modern, and developed country we are not. These last few months have been the worst as the country has seen with so many fiascoes that clearly indicate that we are not only far from reaching that goal of a developed nation but more accurately going down south in the doldrums financially and politically .
The IMDB is one clear example that shows that we are still way behind the elite group and that our country is still in disarray economically and politically. In a developed nation if the leader has lost the confidence of the people he would tender his resignation on his won accord. We have seen this in western countries of how the corrupt leaders in a gentleman's manner would resign from the post. Not surprisingly this tradition also happens in Asian countries like Korea and Taiwan . But here in Malaysia even after one could not account for RM 42 billion ringgit or one cannot give a clear and definite answer about the whereabouts of the money one can still travel overseas and meet foreign dignitaries. These insensitive, irresponsible politicians have no concern for accountability and seriousness of the issue, To those in power, nothing major is happening and the issue will be forgotten by the kampung people . Just get a nice PR guru like Lim Kork Wing your image will be restored. Just give a few million to some reasonably good PR agencies you will be as good as new with an unblemished image. As Dr Mahathir has said Melayu mudah lupa. Forget about the 'missing' RM 42 billion which is nothing to the rich and powerful people, I my self don't even know how many zeroes are there in that much amount of money. Probably Jho Low knows better as he is very good at accounting or doing magic .
|Alleged mass graves in Malaysia|
Second is the discovery of mass graves in the state of Perlis bordering Thailand is really shocking to me. When mass graves were found in Thailand I was not surprised at all as I know how haphazard the country is run and how corrupt the police and the army generals are , But when one of the informants of the Thai government mentioned that there is also a mass grave on the other side at the border I had a last laugh. How could Malaysia with the law and order and well oiled government machinery would have such a thing in the country. This is not Uganda, Venezuela, Columbia, Zimbabwe or Nigeria, Even the Home Minister Zahid Hamidi denied the existence of such a thing. But alas its truly there and it does exists. They have found a total of 39 graves with more than 100 bodies of migrant Rohingyas. WTF has happened to this country of ours, Where are the immigration people , the army, the forest rangers? What have they they have been doing? Please don't tell me they don't know anything happening around them.
|Corruption in Malaysia?|
Lately, there 's so much bad news about Malaysia. This country is now the center of attraction for the wrong reasons. We are now becoming more divided , more corrupt and more rudderless with the captain playing hide and seek in a sinking ship. I doubt we would make to the elite club of developed nations. Our country is still full of corruption at the highest level. I hope we could put a stop to all this madness.
