I admire its purity. A survivor... unclouded by conscience, remorse, or delusions of morality - Ash (Alien)

COMMENT Where do we begin? For a start let’s stop blaming former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad for everything which is wrong with Malaysia as though he is the sole architect of the mess we find ourselves in now.

If you see someone setting a trap and you determinedly (for whatever reasons) walk into it, you have only yourself to blame. And this is in essence what Mahathir the predatory politician has been doing his entire career, setting traps for willing victims.

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.
