It's been a while since there has been anything serious that I blog about.
Partly was because I felt the need to rest and stop sharing my views on the net.
Turning into an introvert....quite likely but then it hit me to think of how unproductive I have been. Productivity not in terms of working or studying, but reading and being part of this ever changing Earth.
Have you ever wonder why Malaysian politic can be so corrupt? Well, let me put it in a better word before the ISA catch me as well.
What I meant is that "why is it that we have this perception that politicians are corrupt?" and how much truth is it in that statement?
Not only in our country, but almost globally. Even the newly elected US President is now facing more criticism than he first started his campaign of "change".
Probably the problems of all these "issues" no longer lies at any single individuals but the community. If you read the Bible, then you probably are familiar with the story of Sodom and Gomorrah. The question is: Are we back to that uncivilized age?
I will say both yes and no. And in fact, probably this new generation are being feed with poison every single day of their lives. What sort of poison am I talking here?
Let's not talk any further than where I am at the moment, university. The place of education and as far as I'm concern, one of our education goal is to achieve unity among people of different races and religions. However, we heard about community group such as Chinese Community (CC) where Chinese gather together to have activities. Isn't it an activity that without us knowing promote racism in our lives.
Chinese look at Indians and Malays as their rivals and so is it the other way round. This is the
sort of mentality that is coming from Malaysia.
"Change", it seems to be changing to be doing the wrong at another level. Not the other way round. For years, we have been polluting the Earth....I'm guilty of this as well....very much guilty of it in fact, and yet we are not changing, all the more during this recession season, where it seems to be the word "I" that stands out from any other things.
We are so concern with our own lives that we don't bother about our actions towards our surroundings. Look at AIG...the people who betray this company probably were those who pledge to do their best to help the company move to a new standard.
The system is falling. Yes, our education system is. Our religious system is falling apart. Our ethics are no longer relevant to us. We are moving back into the days of Sodom and Gomorrah.
How then can we sincerely talk about change and embrace it?
Nothing can save our generation? I believe part of the answer lies within our own decision while another part of it is in the Heavenly Realm.
We need to tear down our safety zone, our knowledge, our system and walk out of it first before entering into the Promised Land. Is it something possible? At the moment, it seem not, but probably Michael Jackson got it right when he sang "Man In the Mirror".
That guy is going to start the ball rolling....
