Towards a techno-polis state?
The Latin root word ‘polis’ is the same etymological foundation for the concept of our modern version of the Athenian democracy. The roots of the concept start with the Greek democratic city state, then called a ‘polis.’ But, the same word is today used to describe the modern city or a metropolis, like in the name, Annapolis or Minneapolis, and is the home also for the root word for public policy, or even the police departments in all countries.
Keep Malaysiakini independent!
Malaysiakini will be 18 this year. That we’ve survived this long is because of you.
Your support matters. A lot. Especially those who pay RM150 annually, RM288 biennially or RM388 triennially to keep Malaysiakini independent from government/opposition influence and corporate interests. Advertising alone will not keep Malaysiakini afloat.
Together, we’ve gone far. We’ve covered three prime ministers, four general elections, five Bersih rallies, and countless scandals. But the journey continues.
Help us deliver news and views that matter to Malaysians. Help us make a difference for Malaysia.
