Man… they are at it again! Some asshole proposed that teaching of Science and Mathematics to be done in Bahasa Melayu. What?? How many times we want to change? Kejap kejap tukar..
And, the talk about helping Malays never end. Sure they will put up some tables, statistics to support, to justify the action. I tell you what, there’s no way Malays will catch up with other races especially Chinese if they keep on relying on subsidies, living on crunches. Why? Need not to say, NEP failed to deliver the results they want. Do you believe that after 40 years or so of NEP, 90% of the Malays still considered to be poor? And that 18.9% equity holding never fail to be quoted by Malay politicians. What you can say but NEP is a failure? From the start, the implementation is already at flaws. All the while the emphasize is to help, to give, give and give.. So when they will be able to stand on their own? The rhetoric is to help all the poor regardless of race which is good, but as you know, Malaysia is famous for the half baked if not bias implementation.
Why I said Malays will never catch up with other races if this kind of policy is allowed to be continued? Well, by putting the emphasize on Malays, by giving preferential treatment to Malays, you are making other races more competitive. The Chinese, being the cunning and smart race they always claim to be will find ways to go around the system. Same goes to other non Malay races. And the illusion of one day Malays will make it, they will be on par with other races will remain a dream if they are being helped all the time. How do you expect a person to be competitive if he is offered the handicap? And do you think other race will stop and watch the Malays doing their things? No!! Farking ridiculous. As the Malays being subsidized and helped in every sector, the Chinese, the Indians will compete on their own abilities. Who do you think will come out as a better and competitive race?
Take this as an analogy, two athletes is running. The first one (let us call him Ah Beng) already at a distance because of his ability, and the another one (let us call him Ahmad) because of his slow start, he’s lagging behind. But, since they want to help the weaker Ahmad to finish on par with Ah Beng at the finish line, they give him some magic pill that will make him run faster, but only as long as the magic pill effect is there. As the effect wears out, he will be running slow again. So they keep running, and it seems Ahmad is catching up with Ah Beng, but everytime Ahmad speeds past Ah Beng, the damn magic pill effect wear out, so he gets slower again and Ah Beng being a good runner keep running in front him. I should tell you also, Ah Beng is a very competitive farker, he will push himself harder when he sees challenges, obstacles. When he knows Ahmad is being helped, he pushes himself to run faster and faster. So, they question is will Ahmad be able to finish together with Ah Beng? Hell no! Unless Ah Beng stop and fall asleep or fall dead because of severe fatigue, then maybe Ahmad has the chance. But as long as both of them running that way, the chance of Ahmad winning the race or even close to Ah Beng is zero!
Stop with this attitude of pointing which race is superior, which one is weaker. Prepare all the Malaysians regardless of race political believe to compete with the rest of the world. Pampering one race will only make them weaker and neglecting other will only make them more hostile and competitive. And this is no way to preserve the unity among Malaysians. Only if our leaders truly understand this. I still wait for the day to come.
