It appears many of the political and non-political organisations are keen to have the election as soon as possible. Why the rush?
Many who rush for it appear to have an agenda, but how are these agendas any good for the public? The public still move around doing their daily routine whether BN or Pakatan Rakyat comes into power.
Much anticipation was there when the Hindraf tsunami created the five opposition states and now the current four in GE12, but to no avail. And talking about BN is like talking to the wall.
Now after four years we see the same politicians taking their turn in their wooing of the public for votes. Many scandals and much rhetoric are thrown about in both the mainstream media and the alternative media to entice the voter but will it succeed, if the thought process of these politicians do not move beyond being summer soldiers and sunshine patriots as opposed to soldiers for the general benefit of the public?
The cycle of politics is a never-ending process no matter who comes into the foray unless and until you have genuine leaders, but then genuine leaders for the community don’t survive in politics as we have both the mainstream media and alternative media that only supports what the party wants, not what is just and fair for the community.
Highlighting to and educating the masses seems very political these days for the Internet-savvy armchair critics who create their arm’s length thoughts without actually acting on their thoughts. The politicians of the current time have mastered this and works through their lapdogs to create a pseudo-belief amongst these all-knowing Malaysians.
Many would agree that the goals of life are the causes of desires and aspirations. Desires arise naturally since our senses still require wealth, love and desire in a material world, yet aspirations like practice of righteousness and liberation for humanity is still a farfetched notion. The latter needs tenacity and determination against the odds.
Our politicians, like us, are still in the desire stage so I guess that kind of sums up why there is a rush for the GE13.
The anchor reason for Malaysians should not be when the election is going to be, but whether we have we gradually changed our attitude in approaching the ground problems such as the truth and reality for the common folks in our own ways, rather than to keep hearing what this or that politician has to say.
Politics will be politics as usual, but I am sure we are more mature and wise when and if we chose to be because of the aspiration rather than the desire.
So why rush GE13, let it take place when it has to take place.
