Multi Ethnic Malaysia
I was listening to a discussion on BFM if the internet should be regulated or not. One gentlemen who came on which trigger this posting spoke about how he felt that the internet should be regulated because we are a “multi ethnic community” hence we are more sensitive and cannot be exposed to possible ill’s on the Internet.
Apparently we are not ready to embrace the kind of information that is available on the internet and the government should control the information available to us and slowly loosen is strings till we get more mature and prepared to handle the information.
Ok, this is what i think I think that race, religion,culture,multi ethnic and all the other words that mean the same thing are expired! It expired long time ago if you have been living under that shell. Most countries around the world are as diverse if not more diverse that what we are. If after 50 years, we havent found a formula that works we obviously dont have the right people running the show.
The Class room picture around the world
Many countries only recently have the influx of others from around the world which is forming the core of the nations, what do they do? They educate, they adjust and they move on.
We whine and use this “unique proposition” as the excuse to slow us down from progressing.
I wish the powers that may be just got to doing what they are set out to do. Getting in the right people with the right skill sets to do the jobs, the current crop of “law makers” are more interested to stay in power than actually run the country. What we are today is from the system that created this narrow mindset.
We need to wake up and move forward for our own sakes and for the sake of our kids!
