I feel sick… and tired of the things that’s going around in my country lately. I mean, there’s so much bad news, and so much anger among my people right now in Malaysia.
I suppose some of my readers are wondering why I choose to zip up my mouth regarding the BERSIH issue despite the fact that I strongly support the freedom of expression and despite the fact that I am a voter and there’s nothing that I desire more than a clean and transparency in the coming General Election. For those who don’t know what BERSIH is… it’s a movement that supports clean and fair election-which is declared illegal by the current Malaysian ruling government *ooopsss, dictatorship much?*. ‘BERSIH’ is a word derived from Malaysian language, bearing the definition ‘clean’.
Well, this is why I’m laying low: I refuse to be a marionette on a string by feeling upset over issues that I do not intend to participate due to safety reason. What benefit do I get by getting all emotional about it? I feel that if I do not intend to participate in the rally to express myself, then I better keep my goddamn mouth shut and I shall do my part when the election comes: by voting, by exercising my rights as a voter.
I know a lot of people are expressing their frustrations over various social media websites and whatnot, but you know something? That is something coward-ish to me. True patriots won’t just talk and vent. They would do something much more than just vent around. They would do something that comes out with an actual result.
For those who are making so much goddamn noise over various social media… I won’t suggest you to stop, but I do hope that when the parliament has been dissolved and the times comes for you to vote, you’ll go and vote instead of merely making annoying noise. One vote could make a difference. If you do not like the current ruling government, then the General Election is the time for you to choose a better leader for a better Malaysia.
Cleffairy: Do you not know that empty cans makes most noise? And did you know that there are various ways to exercise your freedom of expression than merely venting your frustrations over social media countless times?
