That's great. The way it should be. But he went on to say...
“We have acted against many officers and staff members. Even directors-general, secretaries-general and super scale A officers have been demoted or moved out or opted for early retirement.
“If they don’t want to perform, they will be encouraged to leave the service."That last bit pisses me off.
"Encouraged to leave the service"???!!!
What the fuck is that supposed to mean? For as long as I have been a Malaysian the rule has been if someone doesn't perform the duties he's paid to do he gets his ass fired. What this encouraged to leave the service shit?
I want you to get mad! I don't want you to protest. I don't want you to riot - I don't want you to write to your congressman because I wouldn't know what to tell you to write. I don't know what to do about the depression and the inflation and the Russians and the crime in the street. All I know is that first you've got to get mad. You've got to say, "I'm a HUMAN BEING, Goddamnit! My life has VALUE!" So I want you to get up now. I want all of you to get up out of your chairs. I want you to get up right now and go to the window. Open it, and stick your head out, and yell, "I'M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I'M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!"
(Howard Beale in NETWORK <1976>)
