The right of reply

Enough is enough. People who proclaim to fight for freedom of expression and free media but censors other's legitimate reply based on their whims and fancy, must realise that on the internet, they cannot suppress peoples' legitimate right to reply and express contrarian views. This blog welcomes all views. ~ Ellese

People with funny values

1 Comment

Funny how some people comment.

First I’ll state my views. The primary task of any leader is and has been the improvement of ones quality of life. To this end Najib has proven he is capable and I give high marks for his deliverance thus far. If you want we can argue.

His main problem is that he fails to take corruption by the horn. He can strengthen Macc and the law but so long there’s no reform in political financing we will never address corruption in politics. He is fortunate that the opposition doesn’t have credible plan on this but it doesn’t detract his failings in arresting this. We need a reform in political financing which would be crux in changing the incentives and disincentives of politicians. This is a root cause of our corrupt practice.

On the above comments, some commentaries stood as being ridiculous. One is Vic. This is typical blind partisan comment asking people to vote based on fabricated lies. The other is by those who ask for the concept of Malaysian first. This is a cheapo argument. I’ve written here before. Those who support any vernacular/religious schools or worse send their kids in it never had Malaysian first concept in their mind. Perpetuating segregation by race/ religion of our youngs is one of the worse atrocities against Malaysian first concept. To condemn bn and support pr based on this concept is hypocritical.

And CL you are certainly full of hate. You can see here how hatred leads people to fabricating lies and deepen the hatred but you rather than condemn it perpetuate it. What is your actual stand?

And those commenting on media. Condemn people reading MSM but not Am. But what about people reading AM and not MSM? Worse most here support the statement that MSM cannot lie but AM can. I ask both media to be accurate fair and objective but most deny this. Haprak betul.

I’m taking on most of you here. Wish there’s a thread for separating the points. We’ll see how it goes. None of the arguments here are new. Most are repeated unsubstantiated argument. I’ll probably take on topic by topic. But this blog moves to fast and have to backtracked a lot. Perhaps we can debate in different postings.

I tell you where I’m coming from upfront. You don’t own the truth. Ill state the truth on the other side. It should be somewhere in the middle. But as usual blind partisan overrides reasoning to most. Even direct confrontational method won’t change this but to me at least next time we write at least with deeper justification and no more lies. Some like Vic are really into fabrication of the “truth”. We need to be reasonable.

I’m reblogging this. Perhaps some of the issues can be tackled by the threads there.
