I have just done some blog hopping after having reply to Mr WJK in his posting – Quick Fixes anyone?, whereby I felt readers can have a good look, sit and think about it and perhaps can give such positive view for a healthy discussion along the road.
However, in between I do feel stuck in a battlefield. A battlefield between great minds of Malaysians (Only, thank God there isn’t any name calling other than words to show someone is in fantasy) which makes me to agree to to Pemuda IKS in his comment “You guys are no less than the KJ-Husam so called “wacana”. If you were to join forces, the opposition blogs could easily be wiped.” Be it Doc Sid, Mr Singh, WJK or anybody who has the brains invloves in “blogging war”, I feel the efforts are “wasted” ( sorry, I am clueless with suitable word). Why?
I had the chance to watch the debate or forum between Husam and Khairy/KJ, thanks to link provided by Doc Sid here. I’d say it was a good one, but also given us some unhealthy points. Why?
Both events of the above are more like debates, which debate can be define as a formal discussion in a public meeting or legislature, in which opposing arguments are presented or an argument. However, given the circumstances we are in right now, I would say it brings more harm than good, due to the debate provides more points for the individuals and parties to be attacked. More like a convetional type of war, whereby both parties lined up and shoot each other directly. Both got kills and killed. One may win the battle, but will suffer later due to not enough workforce to rebuild what ever losses during the battle.
The same goes here. By way of conduct, the warfare we see more towards showing bad than good side, not in constructive way (Only that I don’t really agree when Khairy/KJ trying to provoke Husam by saying Husam is going for PAS presidency. It was not the platform to do so.). Which, in the later time, what ever left we may have the strongest, but not strong by numbers.
Moreover, the parties lining up to kill and be killed are Muslim Malays/Bumiputeras/new brothers and sisters in Islam. I’ve stated earlier in my article “Middle Class Malay Perspective?” whereby “Islam is larger than Malay, however, as for Malaysia, it is a bit unique case. If for not Malay, Bumi and the new brothers and sisters in Islam who will take care of Islam in this country, who will? Do you think that others will fight for us? I wonder if the Islamic Finance introduced in Malaysia was planned by non-muslim? If so, I believe, most of issue pertaining to Islamic issues has been resolved. And I believe, as for the rest of the world, Palastine issue has be resolved much much earlier.” Just imagine, with current technology, one can recall all these debate, dispute and attack the personality of individual involved later, as shown by Mr WJK’s postings (this merely an example, and I am not taking any sides or believe or not to believe). This can happen at any point of time after a war or a debate. This will resulted us by having the strongest without the support of strong numbers.
We claimed to be more democratic, but somehow, we have practised merely in a wrong way. Be it BN or PR, both can be attacked inside out. BN with it current leaders who some have intergrity and leadership issues while PR with policy issues, in which, if not sorted out, could tear apart the coalition in the event they get the mandate to rule Malaysia. No need to lompat katak.
I believe on the streets that the political harewire and rojakness state will soon be sorted out. With all due respect, it is not really TDM that we missed as one day, he (or anybody, everybody) will die some day, but leadership and stability of Malaysia that we really needed.
Hopes on the street – Stop all these unconstructive debates and start moving forward.
