Be thankful of what we have but do not be afraid for change if the current course is leading us to downfall.

I am talking about of the state of affairs of malaysian politics, for the sake of our future generation.

To me the statement "God belongs to us" is flawed and a selfish, self centered belief and is the cause of most of the religious troubles the world have today. Had the belief been the other way round i.e. that "we all belong to God" instead a lot of the troubles would be avoided.

Mr.Patrick,do you mean that the reliGIOUS are the pious type? or rather the fanatics? If it is,then I concur with you.

I think a big problem right now is religious intolerance, even in Malaysia where we're supposedly a "multi-racial country living in harmony".

And it's not even between religions, but within them (with the different sects and what not), too. At the end of the day it always comes down to an argument of "MY GOD IS BETTER THAN YOURS".

Don't even get me started on how people react to Malays who have a different outlook on religion compared to the usual Islamic lifestyle.

What's wrong with developing your own beliefs? This, I will never understand. The relationship between yourself and God should be a personal one - nobody else should interfere; they have no right to.

I remember long ago I heard you played on the radio the song 'IMAGINE' shortly after the death of John Lennon.

We should listen to this song and imagine that there is no heaven and no hell below us.

It is more powerful than any of those vague concepts that 1malaysia is trying to project.

Muhyiddin denied claims that courses run by the Biro Tatanegara (BTN), or National Civics Bureau, were a form of political indoctrination.

Can we see the content or syllabus or textbook of BTN if it is claimed to be non-racist?

Should anyone be surprised that Putrajaya has invoked the Official Secrets Act to block the disclosure of the Bukit Antarabangsa landslide report?

Ronnie Liu, Selangor state executive councillor said “It is a mystery why this information is so secret,”

BN has a lot of secret to hide?
Maybe it has a 'warehouse 13' somewhere.

currently we are living, sadly still, in feudal system with some political warlords in disguise as people protectors. With GOD's willing, we shall see the demise of these cheaters in due course.
long live the people.
power to the people - imagine - instant karma

Imagine there's no Heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one

This is an interesting quotation by John Lennon:

"God is a concept by which we measure our pain."

Anti-BTN said...

Kurikulum BTN itu sulit?

Pasal ia suruh melayu benci pencapaian bangsa lain!

Dah 40 tahun lebih dapat tongkat NEP, masih tak mampu berdikari dan suka envy sama kejayaan bangsa lain.

Apakah ini semangat 1Malaysia?

Najib sila beri penjelasan.
Kalau tidak, susahlah nak dapat investment/pelaburan dari luar negara.

Love your religion.

Never impose it on others.

To each his own.

Peace in Malaysia!

BTN (Biro Tata Negara) extremists will classify your article as F#@$****.

All all people with strong religious faith

Please respect others' belief. Do not try to convert people.

Have a peaceful time on earth. Do not worry too much of afterlife.

Certain religions allow you to do bad things so long as you later regret it and ask for forgiveness. No wonder many still commit bad deeds because the gate to heaven is still open to them later.

If there is nothing to hide, why then the report on Bukit Antarabangsa is classified under the OSA by the government ?

If there is nothing to hide, why then the book on BTN be opened for public to scrutinize ?

Naza TTDI was awarded 'AP' for Matrade project.

No open tender.

Any reward for BN cronies.

Case of enriching the rich.

What kind of KPI?
