Inhuman bondage: the closing of the Malay mind

Mon 2011-Sep-12 @ +08 20:54:32 pm

The ordinary Malay in Malaysia is kept at a near constant state of anxiety by the tirade about the non-Malays seeking to usurp Malay political and economic rights. The Malays are repeatedly called on to be united in the name of race and religion to fend off this imagined strike.

There is no commensurate effort to unleash the Malay mind and encourage the Malay person to seize the day, excel, question, take charge, propose or dissent. Political leaders and the religious bureaucracy do not favour this; an empowered people puts at stake their political influence and economic privilege.

The outcome is a large class of Malays that is averse to thinking, recoils from taking responsibility and content with following instructions. Ennui, the deep weariness and dissatisfaction stemming from mindless satiety and boredom, is a common affliction.

    NO STEREOTYPING PLEASE – 130911

    Let there be no religious stereotyping
    Bringing about narrow mind setting
    Causing unnecessary political bondaging
    With social structures suffering serious damaging
