Some People Need To Hush


– University of Auckland – Opp. Clock Tower –

… so that the stability of our country won’t be questioned further.

I’ve heard nothing but political shits when I ask my relatives and friends in Malaysia the same simple question of “How’s home?”

I’ve also noticed that more than 50% of Malaysian blogs (newly updated or pinged) are talking about political shits. The same thing over and over; all the slandering, namecalling (I swear, people can be so childish when they’re blabbering), etc etc.

Some of my international friends messaged me out of the blue: “Is Malaysia in some big political brawls now? I keep seeing Malaysians blogging about politics all the time. I thought they’re saying that your country is one of the famous mediators of peace or something…?”

You have no idea how ashamed and frustrated I feel after hearing this question.

How am I supposed to answer? Should I just give them this: “Well, actually, people simply like to fan small flames so that it gets really big. You know, make things all spicy to call for attention.” Or maybe I could simply say: “Don’t worry. I’m tired of all the political shits they’re writing about too.”

Can’t we have someplace reserved only for political bloggers? Correction. Can we have separate places for separate themes, like, ASAP?

I used to love Petalingstreet.org, and I use it still until today. But it gets REALLy tiring when all you see everyday is people blabbering about politics in the ‘Latest Pings’. And for goodness’ sake, they should refrain from double-posting the same thing. It’s a waste of good space.

I swear, blogs should have specific ratings too. We have 18PL for media broadcast. Why not blogs too?

I miss the time period between 2000 and 2003 so much. Blogs were more interesting back then although blogging platforms had less features.

    instead of hating politics, y not try to understand it?
    the more u read, the more sense u can make of it.
    when u made more sense about a thing, it will give u some fun.
    thats what im doing now, and im not regretting my decision to read Malaysia today, CheDet, Anil Netto, Anwar, and Lim Kit Siang's blog at least once every 2-3 days.

    cheers.

      Lol, Nigel XD I gave up understanding our politics when all went to shit. Having family members involved in politics makes everything all the more sh1tty. And even if I don’t read Che Det or LKS’s blog, lots of my search results point to his blog anyway. And here’s coming from people who initially claimed blogs are evil. Bzzzzz….
