i am not happy. can you tell?
not politically motivated? the musical chairs the parliament members are playing now? NOT POLITICALLY MOTIVATED?! of course they are politically motivated! they certainly cannot be morally motivated. and it is honestly far for being socially motivated. and because everyone sitting in the dewans are too occupied holding on to their power seats, this also cannot be motivated by national economics (personal economics simply supports the point of this being politically motivated).
i almost never express my views on local politics, but if anyone actually reads this, i want to tell you who this affects: the average-earning day-to-day working malaysian, who really, are getting just too tired of the political drama to care anymore for what happens in the dewan. it has come to a point where i really don’t care anymore who sits on the bloody chair. i just want them to pull themselves together. you don’t like who sits next to you? TOO BAD! live with it. ni bukan, sikit sikit nak merajuk, nak bantah, nak protest.
any first year varsity student studying elementary behaviorism will tell you that resistance will only fuel contempt. your job is to sit in the dewan and discuss what is best. if the other person won’t listen, you job is to settle it in the dewan like mature grown-ups, not to run to the media and whine and complaint.
let me tell you my reaction when i received the news yesterday via sms news feed: crap. i sighed. now the bloody dewan will be buzzing about this issue pulak. all the press conferences and meetings will have this as their topic, for at least 60 days when a by-election is due. kalau he wins, we will gaduh in the parliament about the win. if he does not win, we will gaduh in the parliament about how he did not win. the gaduh will be about manipulation, corruption, nepotism, favoritism, bla bla bla. this means, over the next three months at least, real issues such as the local socio-economic balance and financial issues will take a very neglected back seat. oh, the issues will be mentioned – but as prevailing problems hurled at each other, used by the other to ‘expose’ incompetence. but until the parliament stops this stupid game of musical chairs, no one will really sit to look into the issues.
the thing that makes me upset when she resigned, is that it is all part of the plan. it was all a set up. they have planned to let things simmer for awhile, AND THEN stir things up again. that she was never meant to hold on to that seat. she was never meant to serve. she was never meant to be the responsible one. and this makes me angry. that she was used just to hold down the seat for him until he can stand for elections again. that’s sad, man. i don’t know what you’re really thinking, datuk seri, but that is how it comes across to me. and that’s sad.
choose a side? choose a side? why the hell should i when it has actually come to a point when both sides are just as screwed up as the next one. i have always firmly believed that we should leave politics to the politicians, and a big part of me still believes it. suka hati you all la how you all want to gaduh in the dewan. kill each other off if you want to, i don’t care anymore what kind of bloodbath happens in there. janji, you fix our country, and yang berhormat, you better bloody well do it soon. i don’t care anymore WHO does it.
