Merdeka the Drama - Scene 51, Act ii


Bukit Bendera Umno appeals to retract Ahmad Ismail’s suspension

The Act will not focus on punishment
but on helping to build and strengthen race relations......
'Under this Act, action can be taken against those who disrupt harmony
by causing racial tension and conflicts
that can also destabilise the country
,' he said.
- NST, on Hamid Albar's statement with regard to "Race Relations Act".

What right does Congress have to go around making laws just because they deem it necessary?
- Marion Barry

Raja Petra - purportedly, for insulting Islam, is languishing in the slammer, just as many more are for various other 'reasons'!
Is our Constitution so useless that we cannot even point out what was so wrong about what these victims did?
Or is it that those who weild power are simply mindless fools?
Considering the nature of The Constitution, I'm inclined to believe that the latter holds true.

They have released Tan and Teresa Kok (after wrongful detention under the colonial ISA) - but with no apologies. (She wishes to sue - but how can she win, when the law says that all it takes is that the powers that be, "deem" you to be potentially dangerous - and it's legal! That law needs no basis for an arrest - you can be arrested for being alive, and deemed dangerous after "someone" has a bad night out!)
Abraham Lincoln once said, "Allow the president to invade a neighboring nation, whenever he shall deem it necessary to repel an invasion, and you allow him to do so whenever he may choose to say he deems it necessary for such a purpose - and you allow him to make war at pleasure."
I guess the same would apply in this case .... that is the power of ISA invoked at whims and fancies.

Nothing happened to abusive MPs in parliament.
Nothing happened when apparently, there were calls for chinese blood (at TPCA was it?).
Nothing happened when calls to use the Kris were made on national television.
Nothing happened after Kg. Medan.
Nothing happened after a racist teacher was rewarded for abusing children.
But now, we suddenly have our brainiacs being so consciencious - all Hail Mr. Hamid!
All we have from these mindlessly orchestrated evils, is the proposal for a new law, sold to the public as "Race Relation Act", when they don't even believe in a code of conduct for their minions in power!

Meanwhile, the the perpetrators of the apparently "strained ethnic relations" wayang kulit - those who incite, are running loose wanting to go on a roadshow. In fact, they even have the audacity to appeal against the slap on the wrist meted out grudgingly by an "enlightened leadership".
One other plastic faced clown has even announced his candidacy for a party post, when he has police reports lodged against him!!

Such is the sincerity of those in the corridors of power, when they announced their intentions on "the act".
Yes- it is just "act ii, scene 51" in the grand scheme of things, with airheads in starring roles (Toyol, Amat, Ali Ketam, Semi Value and Ah Tiong are cheap extras) in this spicy, thrilling, epic soap opera running for the last 51 yrs.
While Mr. Chris and a Madey (he's trying to introduce a JR character in the picture) have come up as the latest intellectual critics to this drama, some others are a little left out.
One M&M actor lost out on the casting couch, I guess and we all know the pretty face that got blown to bits in the supporting role.....
Some people didn't cash in ..... they are waiting to see if the next drama would be more lucrative - after all, there are new hands in the kitty now!

All we need is another Act that would be enforced selectively, and all will be fine and dandy all over again - that's the rationale of the geniuses at work in Putrajaya.
Some choose to believe that everything was so cool before this, and everybody was so happy - and only now there is a "deterioration of inter-ethnic relations" as a result of the actions of the people who are now in Kamunting.

Apparently, all of a sudden, there was a very real threat of open conflict!
Well friends, take a look at who "holds the power to guns" (not to mention waving the Kris or calling for blood) - and you'll know who are the ones who wish to rob the disarmed citizens on the pretext of "ethnic strife", as on 513!

Let's see what the next "act" brings ....

Right discipline consists, not in external compulsion,
but in the habits of mind which lead spontaneously
to desirable rather than undesirable activities.
A hallucination is a fact, not an error;
what is erroneous is a judgment based upon it.

-Bertrand Russell
