Biased Malaysia Episode 1

-Some acquaintance asked me about the effect of Malaysian education on the minds of people of Malaysia. He asked this due to the trends of the Facebook updates (which I don't think should be taken seriously; most of the time they're just rhetoric repeated again and again with varying levels of effect) that worries him nowadays.

-Malaysia is constitutionally a monarch. Plus, it enshrines Islam as the official religion. Which I think is quite a bad idea that undermines the ideals of a nation founded in the principles of democracy. But nevertheless, it is the case that Malaysia is a constitutional Muslim monarch which has an official understanding of religion.

-Plus, Malaysia was formed by the right-wing politicians of UMNO (the historical UMNO, not the current UMNO which, while still right-wing, has evolved in nature) and these right-wing politicians felt a need to carve a country equipped with the right education, culture and also the ranks of citizens who are both pro-UMNO and pro-monarch.

-Yet, politics is never that easy. There are always leftist thinkers, those politicians who felt out of touch with both the monarch, the Malay right-wingers (for various reasons) and the establishment of an official religion of state, arguing that Malaysia needs to be secular, and a secular republic at that.

-Yet the leftist are always associated with the ideology of socialism-which is bad luck for the leftists, as this socialism is ultimately linked with Marxism-the ideology of the ultimate enemy of the state. Parti Komunis Malaya. Double bad luck; this party is also heavily Chinese in composition, hence the right-wings which form the bulk of the Government felt that the Chinese population is some form of demographic bomb that would threaten the ideals of Melayu Islam Beraja.

-Hence the Chinese became the target of the right-wings, albeit in a rather soft way. Instead of singling out Chinese as targets of discrimination, the right-wings establish a form of affirmative action called the Bumiputera-favoring policy. They define what a Malay is, they define what Bumiputera and non-Bumiputera is-and they tell everyone that this is for the betterment of the Malaysians. The Chinese are of no help; after the PKM was singled out as the enemy of the state, the rise of Chinese right-wings ("We demand Chinese schools with Mandarin-language as the medium of instruction," sound familiar?) who collaborated with UMNO as MCA has made the integration between Malays and Chinese difficult.

-(Indian and other Bumiputeras are of course in the whole process, but still, they are being left aside by historians and politicians alike, so I can say little)

-But then came the Islamists. Parti Islam Se-Malaysia. This party, influenced by a lot of things (Ikhwanul Muslimin, Iranian Revolutionaries, etc) was formed initially as the voice of those who felt that UMNO was not Malay enough, not Islamic enough, and they gained influence over the years, through their strategies of infiltrating the mosques, the Islamic education classes-all of which has effected the political and societal ideals of Malays.

-And due to these ideals, we have our education today.

To be continued....(when I'm not that lazy)

Life is a constant struggle for survival in the most morally possible way for humans not just as an individual, but also as a whole species. And the survival of human species demand that the human species evolve and reform themselves as part of the collective whole, a collective that extends race, economic group, nationality and religion. Biologically, humans have little need for biological evolution; they are already equipped with more than enough capability to endure not just the hardship and the extremes of the Earth, but also the intellectual capability to plan and enhance their physical capabilities to face even the near-vacuum space.

Yet, humans are in a very deep need to reform their moral sensibilities.

There is no Day, there is no Night. There is no Up, and there is no Down. There is no Life, and there is no Death, there is no Black and White, there is no Left and Right, there is no Brightness and Darkness, no Cold and Hot, there is no Past, Present and Future, there is no Time, nor there is Space, there is no Self, there is no Other, there is no Knowledge, Wisdom and Strength, there is no Rich and there is no Poor, there is no Lucky nor there is Unlucky, there is no Freedom nor there is Slavery, no Choice nor Predestination, there is no Noise, nor there is Silence, there is no Love, there is no Hatred, there is no Justice nor there is Injustice, no Inside, no Outside, everything we see, feel, taste and love is not there, everything that seems to be there isn't really there, there is only Nothingness, and yet, there is no Nothingness, for there is no Beginning and there is no End, yet no Perpetuation either, every part of the world that we perceive is just what it is--what we perceive, and we can never verify its Truthfulness or Falsity, as there is no Truth and there is no Lie--and nothing really exists, but it exists, full of Contradictions and yet there is no Contradiction.

There is no God Here and yet Here He is.
