MEGATRENDS MALAYSIA #1: CROSSROADS

MEGATRENDS MALAYSIA #1:

"CROSSROADS"


we are at a critical juncture ... a crossroad of either a peaceful transfer of power or a descent into utter chaos .. these few weeks we will see more drama unfolding ... to ultimate aim is to win and win and win .. and kill and kill and overkill our critical sensibility ... we have perfected machiavellianism that lives in our world of oriental despotism .. we live in a mediated world ... of truth no longer can be crafted, in a world of perception management wherein politics is so complex yet cannibalistic ...

in our society lies italy's mussolini and germany's hitler and japan's tojo .. all these laced with the one-dimensionality of malaysiana and that sloganism of "truly asia" ...

the show goes on ... who will win will be determined by the complexity of the game of deceit, the closer we are to the finishing line the more complex the nature of deceit to even be displayed and rationalized ...

we will arrive at Fahrenheit 451 (that Ray Bradbury's dystopian novel of book burning and the end of reason) in which everything will be heating up, in flames, and explode ... because our politics is a politics of plunder, pornography, and parasites behind a facade of rhetoric of morality and multiculturalism .. our politics is a politics of revenge, rape, and ravages run by despots that have designed dynasties amongst themselves in order to fed their desire to dominate, dictate, and dumb down the people ruled ...

we could have been a greater nation had our years in-between elections we utilize to work on improving education and the soul of the nation as bi-partisans, in an evolving and meaningful way we teach about democracy, equality, equity, and personal and political integrity even if we still engage in a system of economy that prides itself in the triumph of the free-enterprise ideology ...

- will we be doomed?
- how difficult will it be for power to be transferred, should the time comes for the conclusion leading to a different political reality?
- or will there be an emergency rule and the installation of a "caretaker government" of military men who will later shed their uniforms and the generals in their labyrinth once again put on their civilian clothes and hand over heaven's mandate on a golden plate?

and the wheel of karma continues to spin ...

i don't know ...

what do we want as a nation ..? where do we see this nation heading towards? -- ar
