Brave talk my friend. How do you propose to do it when the corruption is so steep in the fabric of the culture. Look at every successive wave of Malay leadership, supported by their equally corrupt Chinese and Indian allies. How could we have the bad luck to have inherited an unbroken series of corrupt leadership?
When corruption is so endemic, so steep within the culture, so that every fresh faced leader who surfaces is soon infected, what do you expect to happen to the next fresh faced leader?
Note that the most corrupt and ruthless Malay leaders also claim to be religious and pious. And the Malay / Islamic / religious leadership is sitting quietly, presumably sanctioning it all. If pious, religious, Muslim leadership can be so corrupt, what hope is there for you, raving and ranting as you do from Adelaide? They have Allah on their side. Who do you have?
Get real my friend!! I don't mean to be nasty. But really, is there any hope when the majority of Malays are happy with the corrupt situation?
Only those who feel they've been left out of the looting and pillaging are unhappy. The rest are happy to continue looting and pillaging, directly or by proxy.
The fight against corruption and mismanagement must be based on something more substantial than dissatisfaction borne out of being shut out of the party. Because the solution to that kind of dissatisfaction is a simple invitation to join the party, to be part of the looting, and that will right everything.
Scan the horizon. Do you see any messiah amongst the Malay intelligensia who is bright, incorruptible and gifted? There are many. They are all in the hands of the present leadership.
If you tell me before the last GE that Selangor will be PR I will laugh in your face. If you tell me that Anwar will be leader of an opposition that had over 50% of the people’s vote – again I will laugh in our face. And if you tell me that there will be thousand and thousand of Rakyat prepared to demonstrate against the ISA I will then ask you to go away and not disturb me with your lunatic rantings!
There are a few people in our Nation’s history that we can be proud of. Honest and incorruptible. Tan Chee Koon comes to my mind. Lim Kit Siang comes to my mind. And among those who have Allah on their side I have some – Tun Razak, Tun Hussein Onn, Tun Ismail Rahman, Tun Ismail Ali and Tun Salleh Abbas and all these Tun’s stand head and shoulders above any Malay leaders that we now have.
Now why am I ranting from Adelaide? One reason is so that people like you will read what I write and put your thoughts for or against what I write on paper. Then I post your comments and others will read it and make their conclusions and if they are inclined - also make their own comments. And so my friend begins the process of making everybody else aware of our thoughts and our beliefs. Then we know who are with us and who are not and more important their reasons for making that decision. Now because UMNO knows that there just might be enough people to vote them out of office come the next GE they have begun to take note. Yes they still rob us blind but they are more careful how they do it. The process for change, however excruciatingly slow has started.
This process of change will transcend race and religion. Do I see any Messiah amongst the Malays to lead this country? Why amongst the Malays only? Did you think Americans would have chosen Obama for President five years ago? He was a man of his times. There will be one for Malaysia too – a man or women for our times in Malaysia. And all we need is just one leader - not two, three or a dozen. We just need one leader who will be the leader of our times. He will be our Prime Minister and nobody else – the people will make sure that happens.
