See, the reaction is always the same - always

Another show of might over right.

Read here for details of the furore caused by a speech given by an MCA MP in Parliament on March 15 on "highly sensitive" subjects like distorted local history textbooks, new prayer recital guidelines and the problems faced by non-Muslims with regards to places of worship.

What's so new about what's been raised? The non-Muslims have been talking about these things for donkey years.

Of course, now that it was brought out in the Dewan Rakyat, we can expect more demands for apologies and retractions and further kow-towings to the mighty UMNO politicians for exposing the dirty truth in our haze-shrouded country. (Is that also why our bureaucrats are not in the least interested in resolving the annual haze menace that blankets our country? To keep everyone's line of vision nicely blurred?)

Some people are probably thinking that this subject could risk exposing one group's menacing agenda to enslave others into total submission by sabotaging the rights of others to the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

The undeniable fact is, you know, I know, and the whole world knows what is going on here in Malaysia.

But, they also know that the best way to keep the status quo is to pretend that it is not happening, don't talk about it, don't raise it in public, don't even think about it.

Because if you so much as dare to rock the boat, you better prepare yourself for a sojourn in a govt sponsored facility where you will get free food and lodging in exchange for some solitude time to think over what you have said and done and if possible, re-educate yourself to fall in line with the unspoken rules in this country.

Let's see what else happens next.

Update: This post by James Wong is interesting in relation to the problem we are facing with UMNO's politics.

Latest Update (@20:05): Thanks to Marvin, I have been alerted to this link which gives a twist to the subject matter here and the previous post below. The report heading says: "Khairy: Don't champion only one community". Please read it to understand the politics of this country. Thanks.

The success of the Jews is the mere fact that they thrive in adversity.

Rhetorics will not bring betterment; on the contrary it's insidious.

We got to think ahead of the system and thrive within.

Great update! I just read the Daily Express and archived the news. I will wait for the UMNO AGM and listen to what Khairy had to say - whether it is Cakap Tak Serupa Bikin.

Blog more... we need info and updates to get going!!!!

I had a funny moment just now Mave. Read the comments section of the previous posting about Nazri the "Islam-hater" accuser.
