All I want is a level playing field,

where it doesn’t matter what race my friends are;

where I can work without the existence of a permanent glass (or concrete) ceiling that applies solely because I am not ‘bumiputera’;

where I can do business without having to pay bribes, or be legally compelled to give equity to non-contributing partners;

where the fascists in government don’t threaten to spill my blood every year because I refuse to submit to their racist bullying;

where I can walk the streets without scanning for thugs, and I don’t have to be paranoid about my friends or family becoming victims of crime when I’m not around;

where the police are not half the crime problem;

where the education system is actually meaningful;

where i can have a reasonable expectation that the government is clean, efficient and fair;

is this too much to ask?

I think not.

Can the Pak Blah government deliver?

I think not.

Can we do something about it?

Can we afford NOT to?

JUST BECAUSE…

cliff-avatar1.jpg

This statement is dedicated to the UMNO-BN fascists, without whom this blog would never have come into existence.

Just because I disagree with the government of the day… does not make me a pengkhianat (traitor);

Just because I criticise corrupt, boorish and incompetent leaders… does not make my words seditious;

Just because I mercilessly mock the corrupt, inept and ill-disciplined police force… does not make me anti-establishment;

Just because I will never accept “ketuanan Melayu” (‘Malay Supremacy’) and the institutionalised racism embodied in the NEP… does not make me a racist;

Just because I criticise religious intolerance and refuse to accept that Malaysia is an Islamic state… does not make me an Islamophobe;

Just because I have learned to see and think critically beyond what UMNO-BN government propaganda would have me believe is the one and only “truth”… does not make me a subversive.

It makes me an independent thinker. A free citizen. An individual.

I refuse to quietly submit to UMNO’s not-so-secret wish that I should become a docile, fawning minority lapdog that can be whipped at their pleasure and be content with whatever table scraps the filthy UMNO-BN overlords choose to throw to me.

But by the definitions above and my refusal to submit to UMNO’s desired place for me in its scheme of things, your paranoid and corrupt government will classify me a subversive.

And I shall gladly accept the label as a badge of honour, for to subvert a system as corrupt as UMNO-BN can only be a good thing.

If anyone has made me a subversive, it is the fascists in UMNO, who have sunk so low into corruption and are so deathly afraid of having their delusions of grandeur shattered, they must monopolise the very truth by throwing all resources at shutting down the slightest sign of dissent.

So, UMNO fascists, let me tell you how I am going to be subverting your precious, pus-ridden government.

I will be posting verified and cross-referenced facts, reports, civil society news updates and records of public figures’ bad behaviour; I will engage people in civil debate and discussions on human and civil rights and work on collaborative projects on how to improve governance in this country; I will encourage citizens to think for themselves and to vote intelligently when the election comes; I will of course frequently and regularly express my unforgiving opinion of your putrid leaders, who in truth need very little help from me to look like fools.

What will you persecute me for? For posting facts? For posting mercilessly unsympathetic opinions on the absurdities and outrages perpetrated by a government that seems to think it is accountable to no one, and persecutes whistleblowers rather than the perpetrators of crimes?

You are accountable to us, the rakyat, the people.

Perhaps you forget that we are your bosses. We are your employers. And we say, “Enough! You’re fired.”

It is a tragedy that this situation has come to pass. You who are in government are living caricatures of corruption, greed, incompetence, self-delusion and hubris. You deserve nothing but contempt and derision.

I would spit on you, but that would make me no better than UMNO Youth. There are more productive outlets for my anger. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have much work to do to subvert your ‘New UMNO-BN order’. And you can be assured that I will not be working alone.

We the rakyat are watching you.
