Abdullah CD could have been an influential retired politician today if only the course of history had been in his favour. He could have been a former menteri besar or minister.

However, unfortunately for him, the coin flipped the other side and he was destined to be remembered as a communist whose revolution had failed, as what Malaysian history books today say.

But that has never stopped him from keeping his ideologies alive. He has always believed that the ultimate rulers of Malaya, and then Malaysia, should be the people and not politicians who yield too much of power - be it the British colonisers or the subsequent Umno powerhouse.
