I have written many countless times, an action must have the same value irrespective of the doer. If one you like does an act you deemed good, a similar act of your foe must be right as well. Politicians con us all the times (for amplication to many, it includes PR). I am not that surprise if many follow this personality driven value, but find even those who appear intelligent are unable to distinguish this simple right or wrong. Now as election nears I’m inundated by rubbish propaganda that I think we’re a screwed nation.
The last write was telling. It was a simple value of not degrading our servicemen/government purely on the basis they are paid or its their duty. It doesn’t mean you can’t criticise them for not performing. It doesn’t mean that you need to support. But if one does good you recognise the effort. It doesn’t matter if its PR or BN.
But as a result of partisanship many pro pr supporters believe that is a valid position. They don’t want to recognise anything that BN does so no way its a good value. But funny thing these same people ask people to support pr in recognition of pr governments efforts. Tak da pula argument they being paid or its their duty. Funny value these people have and still believe they are right.
I have been writing for years on this. Don’t do this. It will lead to ridiculous conclusion. For example, as a result of calling TPM merely based on his statement, one staunch pro pr now have to call all PAS leaders as bigots based on the same basis. He condemns both as racist and bigots but because of PR he had to support whom he called the bigots. Then what makes him. He is putting himself deeper and deeper into a corner. In the first place it was not wrong pun but because of propaganda he was taken in.
So don’t do this. Just take a step back. Assess the act and not the doer. Ask how does it apply to you and your foe. Otherwise you get a result where you condemn racism but support bigotry. Then proudly tell the world its a right stand while others laugh at the hypocritical position.
