MEGATRENDS MALAYSIA #3: 1Malaysia's Maddening Multiculturalism

MEGATRENDS MALAYSIA #3:

"1Malaysia's MADDENING MULTICULTURALISM":

what lies behind the slogan is a rotting culture of political socialization, enculturalization, and participation .. of post-colonial ideology of maintaining a false sense of pluralism so that exploitation can be engineered via divide and conquer strategy and the people can be given circuses, funfairs, and goodies ...

the pathos... lies in education as social reproduction and a conveyor belt of racist formation .. that schools and institutions are to maintain the ideology of ethnic separation by de jure' or de facto, via formal, informal, or hidden curriculum ...so that the leaders of the "apartheid regime of the modernist mould" can be sure to sustain power via neo-feudalistic strategies of control, containment, and co-habitation ...

and thus we have the continued existence of schools and institutions that are used a breeding grounds of racist ideology detrimental to the aspirations of this nation in need of education for peace, cultural understanding, and social justice ...

must we not dismantle this ideology and with immediate effect integrate all schools and now allow the ideology of one-race one school to prevail? should we have dome that before mahathirism took power and charted the direction of control to promote this "maddening multiculturalism" to take root?

why are many highly-educated malay professionals of this generation essentially seem to be parading this sense of sophisticated racism they carry as a badge of honor to design and implement policies detrimental to the evolution and realization of "truly sensible and human sense of multiculturalism"?

wherein lies the problem in multicultural education? how do we rectify this? -- ar
