Exploitation of Malaysians by Malaysians

The recent developments in Malaysia, particularly the show of protests and possible demonstrations by Malaysian NGOs (Non-Governmental Organizations) on the streets of Kuala Lumpur, disturbs not only me, but also the millions of other Malaysian citizens that seeks peaceful and harmonious living. The proposed Bersih 2.0 gathering scheduled to be held on the 9th of July 2011, may have noble intentions at heart, but the possible outcome of such public demonstration could lead to disastrous affects. As an event organizer, you may be able to control and conduct the behavior of say 1,000 people in a controlled environment, but as such cannot be achieved if it were to be in a public open area, and involving greater number of people. Making it worst, the participants, may not be rallying just for Bersih 2.0’s initial cause, but also with other ulterior political motives.

It has been proven that Malaysian politics and its members tends to be overzealous in righting their respective causes, and usually, by whatever means necessary. It is very unfortunate that they could not care less for the repercussion of their actions, and whether their causes are humanely correct or not. To them, what matters is that their cause is right, and received by the majorities (even by forcing it down our throats)..

There are various other ways to highlight your grievances, dissatisfaction and disapproval, which may bring better results and achieve the attention of your targeted audiences. By disrupting the harmony of the country, it would project a negative picture to foreigners especially potential FDI’s. That would in-turn lead to reduced in-flow of foreign investment capitals and at the same time, jeopardize local businesses and economies.

I’m pretty sure the leaders of Bersih 2.0 realizes these effects as most of its leaders are rather learned and educated. The claims that the Oppositions had exploited the true intentions of the gathering can be truly and easily believed, but again, it is the Bersih 2.0’s organizers that created the opportunity of exploitation in the first place. Bersih 2.0’s organizers did not even make an effort to clear the air of their true intentions well enough, as I for surely know, NGO’s such as Perkasa are distributing leaflets of distorted information on the true cause of Bersih 2.0. Who is to be blamed? If Bersih 2.0 had made it clear enough from the beginning, all this calamity would not exist.

Malaysians do realize that the system is not perfect and has its flaws. Not just in Malaysia, but countries all over the world are facing the same predicaments. Yes, we’re trying to eradicate all negativities within the administration and government, but you’d have to remember, all administrations and governments are managed by humans. Humans are never perfect. They have their needs, wants and desires. As long as humans possess these elements, they’ll continuously struggle to fight for the good over evil. Sometimes, the good wins.. Sometimes, the bad wins. That is nature.

Switzerland has been regarded as the most safest, crime and corruption-free country in the world. Whys is this? Government servants there enjoys high rate of personal income, and their average Income Per-Capita is US$ 69,000. With that kind of income, why the need for greed, when almost all your wants, needs and desires can be satisfied? I’m not saying that Swiss people are not greedy but greed itself is subdued due to the comfortable lifestyle set by the country. That is what I believe, Prime Minister Najib Razak is trying to achieve for Malaysians, but somehow, some political parties just can’t seem to accept it. Why? Does it not satisfy your political needs and wants? It all depends on you.. If you are a true politician, you’d find other issues far more important than covering someone’s ass!!.. Like I said, everyone has their mistakes, but what’s important is how you correct your mistakes and makes things better, especially for the people of Malaysia.

What say you?
