So now we all have to take sides.
You and me, the Malays in the rural areas, all those who have been the recipients of BRIM, all those who have makan dedak, all those who are Muslims, Christians, Buddhist, God fearing and even Atheist. All who are Malaysians and a few others who are not…….. we all have to make our choices and take sides.
Take sides against what body of enemies, over what issues, what principles and for what purpose and in which direction we are to advance or retreat are becoming clearer by the day.
Suffice for me to say for now that while Najib Razak and his cohorts are driven by greed, arrogance, and hubris, the side you and me are now on, are driven by justice for all, common good, a belief that those not as fortunate as we are must still be given their due, and that unshakeable belief that all Malaysians are one and that good governance by good leaders are now long overdue.
You are either with Tun Mahathir, Lim Kit Siang, Anwar Ibrahim, and all their men or you are not.
You are either for the greater good for all Malaysians, for decency, for grace and respect of each other’s race, culture and beliefs or you are not.
By your choice, you will know yourself to be for good or for evil. You will know if you are for others or just for your own financial and personal gain. Whether you are for the higher values that makes a man or a women more of a human being than others or for those things that greed, avarice, arrogance, and hubris makes you hunger for. And by so doing, it demeans a human being to the levels of what Najib and Rosmah have now descended to – into the cesspool of corruption and greed where the dregs of humanity are deservedly consigned to.
Think no more my friends because the time now is for deeds. What is done by Mahathir, Anwar or Najib is done. The time now is for the future and what we can do now to make that future secure, better and more welcoming of the future generations…our future generations, for do not forget that our children will be among them.
Now I must be off to do what work I can do for this fight ahead of us. I write. What will you do my friends? What will you do?
