That's a very powerful message, LC. Thanks so much for sharing!
Hahaha... thanks, MWS. I don't think I need to put it in too many words since you've said most of it in your blog.
i still cannot accept hypocrisy among voters who allow the situation to continue
Bengbeng, we have to understand, many voters can't see beyond their own problems in their abject poverty and ignorance in which the very government that could do something to help them get out of that situation refuses to do so.
Manji, welcome and thanks for the visit.
LC, I can relate to what u said abt abject poverty, living in a village myself. Every day my routine is the same. Go for morning drink, go tend my little farm, help parents do this and that, occasionally socialize with friends in the kampung, eat, go to sleep. We don't talk about governance, submarines, GST and all that. We talk about durians, duku, rain, our problems with relatives and family. National issues are completely alien to the activities I do every day.Heartlanders seldom do internet becoz when we come back from the fields, we're tired and only want rest, eat and spend time with family. We get info from gossip, MSM, and various govt agencies that visit occasionally. There's a disconnect, by heartlanders themselves who wish to keep life simple, and by those who don't want peopel to know too much. So in the isolated little world that I see, most heartlanders only recognize two things - going to heaven when they die, and money. A scenario many in civil society just cannot fathom.
