10 years later in a company called Maverick

Been traveling so many newly which this is a initial time I've had to refurbish this blog.

The posting below is from my association blog Talking Points which you wrote upon a fly to commemorate a 10th anniversary. you suppose it is a great pointer which all of us in Maverick have been so busy which we've hardly had time to commemorate a 10th anniversary, though there will be a time for merrymaking soon.

When Maverick initial set out upon a journey exactly 10 years ago this month, you had an audacious ambition: to be a many respected communications consultancy in Indonesia.

We weren't calm to be a Public Relations group as Public Relations often meant media relations; you additionally didn't wish to be an agency, you do a bidding of clients who might not indispensably know improved upon what's great for their brands.

So you set out to fool around in a field of communications as well as to be consultants initial as well as foremost, with group work as a await for a consultancy services.

A decade has passed. How have you done?

Let's demeanour during a desire to be "most respected" first. On a scale of 10 I'd say you have strike an 8 or even a 9. The client list you have is nothing to scoff during with a likes of Acer, Airbus, Airbus Military, Brand A, Coca-Cola, Nestle, HM Sampoerna as well as SMAX.

Then there is a Crisis as well as Issues Management practice which makes Maverick a go-to firm for many of a nation's largest as well as many determined law firms wanting litigation support, multinationals confronting work unrest or consumer food companies having problems with their products. The client list is similarly considerable though a nature of a work precludes us disclosing their names.

Where amicable media is concerned, you officially set up Raconteur, a digital storytelling division, a year ago as well as already it is creation a name for its! elf as a digital consultancy which delivers results, not hype. In a commencement of this year it won a huge comment in SMAX snacks. It has additionally rubbed a launch of a Google Chrome campaign, only introduced Evernote to a Indonesian online community as well as is operative to help a Taiwan Trade Office (TAITRA) foster a island-nation.

There is additionally Gauge, a media monitoring as well as research multiplication which continues to settle itself as a many extensive as well as high quality use of a kind in Indonesia, in annoy of newcomers to a industry. It's addition of amicable media monitoring as well as research as a use has additionally been a strike to a clients.

And final though not least, you have Brio a newest multiplication which leverages Maverick as well as Raconteur's practice as well as believe as practitioners to provide precision to corporations in need of communications as well as predicament management skills. It was set up this year as well as already it has strike all a monetary targets you have set for it.

Together these divisions add up to an charity greater than a total of themselves. This is great headlines for clients who might need as well as wish a full spectrum of communications recommendation as well as service.

All, this, however has been possible because of two things. The enlightenment as well as a people in Maverick.

We similar to to think which you have a enlightenment which is singular as well as un-replicable by alternative competitors. It is a enlightenment where individuals have been invariably challenged to produce their best, as well as then go a single step further. At a same time it is a nurturing enlightenment where any as well as each Maverick has a responsibility to await as well as encourage their co-workers to greater heights as well as successes.

Mendidih sungguh darah aku bila membaca laporan KEDAHAN69ERS.COM tentang penduduk Kampung Sungai Kob yang menerima layanan SERUPA BABI daripada Kerajaan Negeri Kedah.

Daripada apa yang aku dapat tahu, tanah yang dipertikaikan itu adalah Tanah Rezab Melayu. Masa Kerajaan Barisan Nasional dulu, projek tanah perkuburan swasta ni diorang dah introduce tapi tak diluluskan. Bila PAS dan Pakatan menang di Kedah, projek yang tak diluluskan tu, serta-merta diluluskan.

Penduduk Sungai Kob dah berjaya dapatkan dua perintah mahkamah untuk menghalang projek daripada diteruskan. Tapi syarikat berkenaan, Prestavest yang difahamkan dilindungi oleh pemimpin Pakatan tertentu, telah membabikan segala perintah mahkamah dengan meneruskan kerja-kerja projek di Tanah Rezab Melayu Sungai Kob.

Pagi tadi, lebih kurang 100 orang penduduk kampung yang berkawal di jalan masuk ke tapak perkuburan swasta terbesar di Asia Tenggara itu, naik angin apabila kata dua diorang agar projek tidak diteruskan, dianggap sampah oleh pekerja-pekerja Prestavest.

Akhirnya, dua orang pekerja Prestavest cedera. Seorang pekerja India, koyak pipi manakala seorang lagi pekerja Cina lebam matanya.

Polis yang berada di tempat kejadian, telah berjaya mengawal keadaan dan menahan 52 orang penduduk kampung kerana merusuh.

Isu pokok di sini adalah tanah perkuburan Cina di tengah-tengah perkampungan Melayu dan di atas Tanah! Rezab M elayu pula. Yang ditangkap adalah Melayu... dan yang menangkap juga adalah Melayu... siapa yang bertepuk tangan dalam hal ini?

Korang fikir-fikirkan sendirilah...

Tapi yang paling best, masa kecoh pusat penyembelihan babi, PAS serta Malaysia turun memberikan sokongan kepada penyembelih-penyembelih dan pemilik pusat penyembelihan babi itu. Tetapi bila Melayu Sungai Kob meminta agar tanah perkuburan swasta itu dipindahkan dari kawasan mereka, mereka telah dibabi-babikan....

Maknanya, Melayu Sungai Kob taraf mereka lebih rendah dari BABI ler yek?


Fixed term election?

The other day, an aged lady studious of mine astounded me with a subject after a consultation is over.

She asked: Why is there no choosing yet?

This is a 70plus years aged lady who is a standard housewife, talking about her seizure as well as her family upon most of her visits , as well as we have not listened her talk governing body or criticism upon amicable problems all this while.

So we ventured to answered her: There are simply as well most problems out there for a governing celebration to feel safe/confident to call an election.

I am extraordinary to know how this organisation of over 70s feel, as well as so we followed up my answer with a subject of how she noticed a total situation. In a past, there were a little in this gorup who would opinion a incumbents for stability.

She pronounced which she would not support a statute celebration as there were so most things wrong. This was despite of all a something good to eat given. She pronounced she has taken a RM500 under BR1M, which was open income as well as it would be stupid for any one not to take it. But she pronounced which she would not be convinced by this income since this income did not belong to a government though came from a people originally.

I told her which an additional turn of RM500 would be coming, as well as she was incredulous. She was disturbed which a little of a people competence be convinced by a income as well as to illustrate continue to opinion for this 'bad' celebration (that was her difference used).

I told her about Bersih 3.0 as well as which most people in a cities would not be swayed.

I finally told her which Parliament will automatically be dissolved upon 28th Apr 2013, as well as inside of 60 days of dissolution, there contingency be an election, which means which a most expected GE will have to be hold inside of a next 12 months, similar to it or not.

She seemed relieved as well as referred to which this competence be a last time she is vot! ing as s he is aged . we have to reaasure which her health is alright, as well as which she has most years to go upon if she continues to lead a clever as well as active lifestyle.

Thus ended this review which has since me most food for thought.

The hottest subject since a last 2 years was a pending GE. But for 24 months, you have listened a sounds of a steps though have not seen any one entrance down a stairs, so to speak.

Because of a uncetainty, so most governing body were played, so most so-called elections budgets have been tabled, giving most handouts which do not indispensably assistance a economy.

Each turn when there were handouts or something good to eat being dispensed, there were rumours which choosing would be called.

This creates an uncertainty not usually in a commercial operation sector, though in a batch market, in a investment milieu, as well as a formulation of most of activities, as well as a list goes on.

The flexible choosing date is a underline of a Westminster system, as well as it gives a incumbents an advantage. a incumbents can call an choosing during a time most favourbale to them. Like batch markets, governing party's happening changes, as well as it cahnges rapidly depending upon a policies implemented, a economic factors, as well as a mood of a citizens which can be greatly shabby by peer pressure. The latter is a outcome of most factors, between which are a spin stories as well as a media influence.

I contingency contend which we determine with Minister Nazri in his proposal which there should be a bound 5 year term for Parliament.

It will capacitate proper planning, less politicking (once in 5 years distinct now, politicking starts 2 years from a lasy election), less wastage of income in a forms of choosing budgets. It would capacitate some-more governing, some-more fast business, batch market as well as investment milieu.

With a bound term, voters can also devise their activities. Just take me as an example. ! Few mont hs ago, when we got news which my daughter-in-law is expecting in May, we was wavering to buy a ticket to vosit my son in May-june period, as there were rumours which there would be an choosing in June. But after analysing all a accessible info, we decided which there was only as well most of superb issues for PM to call an choosing , so we went forward as well as requisitioned our tickets (My wife went over with me)in March. Even then, we wasn't 100% sure which choosing would not be called in a schools holidays in early June.. My opinion may not meant anything (since my area PJ Utara was won by Tony Phua by a outrageous domain as well as we design this domain to widen) though we only want to do my civil duty as a citizen.

THE THREE busy highway junctions along the fifteen KM of Jalan Lintas from Mile 5.5 Tuaran Road to the KKIA have been indeed indispensable the construction of tall turn flyovers to palliate the trade overload as well as jam. The three highway junctions urgently indispensable the flyovers have been during Mile 5.5 Tuaran, Jalan Kolam as well as the Jalan Penampang-Lido Junction.

Kota Kinabalu Member of Parliament Hiew King Cheu brought up the matter in Parliament not long ago as well as asked the Minister of Works upon the coercion for the supervision to construct the flyovers, as well as upon when these can be carried out.
The Ministry replied which the due flyovers shall be built underneath the "Upgrading Project of Jalan Lintas, KK" in the supervision growth program. The devise is with an estimated overall sum of RM300 million which is underneath the Highway Network Development Plan (HNDP), phase 2, as well as to be executed underneath the 10th Malaysia Plan.

The scope of work includes the upgrading of 4 lanes 2 ways to turn 6 lanes 2 ways with JKR U5 Standard. There will be 4 junctions converted to tall turn channel regulating flyovers. At the moment, the Ministry of Work is discussing with the Economy Planning Unit (EPU) as well as the Prime Minister Department (JPM) to concede the devise to be carried out underneath the third rolling devise in the 10th Malaysia Plan (2013 - 2014).

KKMP Hiew said the reply from the Ministry of Works is just the reply without genuine commitment to solve the matter. At the meanwhile, the! people will have to go upon to humour from trade overload as well as every day jam.

It is not in accord with to contend which there is devise to set up the flyovers during the trade junctions of Jalan Lintas underneath the 10th Malaysia Plan but the Ministry is during the impulse discussing with the EPU as well as JPM to get the devise going underneath the third rolling devise for 2013 to 2014. That means the method is not ready to start the devise during all, as well as why only talk to EPU as well as JPM now.

All these should have been finished approach prior to the 10th Malaysia Plan was approved, as well as generally right away we have been more than half approach through with the plan. Furthermore, can the RM 300 million devise be executed as well as completed from 2013 to 2014,because the singular flyover in Tanjong Aru took them roughly 4 years to complete.

MP Hiew wants the Ministry of Work to be more considerate towards the problems arising in Sabah, generally in the state capital, Kota Kinabalu. He also subject upon the amount of RM 300 million estimated to be used for the fifteen KM of upgrading work. He suggested the Ministry of Works to investigate how other overseas countries have assembled their flyovers in the very fast as well as poor way. We want the complaint solved. - Sabahkini

Why force state governments to take up 11% of Felda IPO - Tony

Why force state governments to take up 11% of Felda IPO - Tony
The inventory of Felda Global Venture Holding is supposed to spin a made at home powerhouse in to a global player, but a move to 'force' BN state governments to take up 10.84 percent of FGVH's shares has not sat good with Petaling Jaya Utara part of of parliament Tony Pua.
Continuing his estimation of FGVH's prospectus, Pua pointed out which 5 BN-ruled states were supposing "irrevocable undertakings" to allow a IPO shares.

The Settler and his Felda will soon Part ( Part 2/2)

I goal a dutiful sons as well as daughters of settlers will insist to their parents, a fraud pursuit Isa et al with a blessings of Najib have been pulling upon them. Look during a placement of a 60% shares being offered:-

Table 1. percentage as well as series of shares offered.


Shares offering for sale

Percentage (%)

Number of shares( million)


Sale of existing shares


1,208.9 million


Sale of new shares







A sum of 2.1889 billion shares amounting to 60% of a sum have been offered. The buyers? A vast portion is taken up by cornerstone investors. Exotic name huh? They have been vast institutional buyers such as EPF, Tabung Haji, state governments. Did we see my home state Pahang in a list? Where will it get a money?

The FELDA community? Only a paltry 5.5% or 200. 6 million shares. The celebrated settlers? They get to buy 91 million shares. Najib knows you people don't have money. We don't give you, you don't have money. The FELDA settler- he who buys or doesn't buy is an unfortunate bastard. Haramjadah.

Let's say, out of this con pursuit exercise, FELDA gets RM 10 billion. Let's ask Najib as well as Muhyidin as well as a father to Bibi, how most does FELDA get? 40%? If 40%, FELDA gets about RM4 billion. RM 6 billion goes to ahem- a honest monster apportion who rules over FELDA- PM Najib. We of course know what Najib does with a money. He will go out to town as well as grease a palms. Not a palm trees. The palms of his voters. This FGV is Najib's a single some-more Pork Barrel politics pr! oject. B R1M afterwards equals- Beli Rakyat 1 Malaysia.

What will FELDA do with a RM 4 billion cash? we goal it pays behind EPF since that's a people's income in there. After profitable RM 3 billion, FELDA is left with RM 1 billion. How long does a RM 1 billion lasts when FELDA needs RM 3 billion/year to run a operations.

With less money, FELDA will cut behind upon a corporate amicable responsibility. Let me illustrate. In 2011, FELDA spent RM424 million for a settlers. In 2012, which volume will be marked down by almost RM100 million to RM326 million

Our FELDA settlers will see

Reduction in infrastructure spending by 57%. They can forget about repair roads, buildings suraus, village halls, mending water placement etc.

Development output upon 2nd as well as 3rd generation FELDA dwellers marked down by 27%.

Productivity incentives marked down by 22%.

Hari Raya Bonuses marked down by 25%.

Insurance plans for settlers marked down 25%.

That's a predecessor of things to come. Settlers beware.

Now let's ask a subsequent question. On a contingent fate of a superfluous 40% hold by FAHC, usually God knows. Maybe some people in FELDA get tingling fingers; they wish to prune down too. With Chairman Isa as well as other FELDA mandarins there, can we ever get a guarantee which a 40% will not be sole off? Will a 40% be safe?

Let all a people in FELDA beware, a superfluous 40% not sole off (yet) is hold by FELDA Asset Holdings Corporation. (FAHC). Isa Samad says or plans to offer 50% to settlers in sell for selling their souls in FELDA Holdings. Let me repeat- settlers get 50% in FAHC not FGV. KPF as well as FGV have been opposites. FGV is a capitalist vehicle. KPF or a Cooperative is a Communist desirous creation. Comrade Settler cannot co-exist with Bernie Madoff.

FAHC which binds a superfluous 40% will get returns depending upon a experts who have been handling FGV. FAHC will afterwards establish how most to give to settlers not FGV. The settlers better start asking can FAHC guarantee they can get a 15% which they have been right away accustomed to?

Don't confuse a complete Malay race by jumping up as well as down like monkeys when Najib gave you RM 15,000. Just demeanour during a numbers below:-


Type of purchaser

Percentage (%)

Number of shares( million)


Chosen by MITI




Cornerstone buyers



1 +2





The public




FELDA settlers




FELDA employees







Grand Total



So we hope, conscientious children of settlers will discuss it their parents, a RM1500 is a self-evident last dish for a condemned. After a listing, a 112,000 FELDA settlers get 810 units of share/household. The FELDA village (settler as well as employee) have been allocated usually 5.5% since they have been unfortunate poor bastards. 94.5% of a shares offering will be owned by non FELDA people, including those who have never set foot in ! a settle r's home.

(Malaysians contingency know a truth) - Wow, this is indeed an achievement for a PM Najib's golfing partner, a a single as well as usually Tan Sri Tan Kay Hock of George Kent (the H2O meter maker).
YM Raja ! Petra Ka marudin unprotected his tract inMalaysia Todaysometime in September, 2011 (READ HERE), but a great Tan Kay Hock kept smartly quiet, authorised time to lapse so which a reduced memory of Malaysian Rakyat would dont think about whilst he planned as well as schemed his way to CRBC (Chinese Road & Bridge Corporation) which like his previous equine CHEC (China Harbour Engineering Construction) is additionally within a Group of CCCC (China Communications Construction Co.

YM Raja Petra Kamarudin had said, "In China, both a giver! s as wel l as a receivers of bribes will be sentenced to genocide with a bullet in a conduct as well as a price of bullet charged to a family of a deceased." In this case, you have to prove there is temptation endangered first, as well as if proven, usually a Chinese givers will face a firing squad, whilst they cannot touch a receiver (or his nominees) in Malaysia. We thus cannot stop what a Najib wants to do for his buddy, as well as who cares if some Chinese givers get shot in a head? That's not a concern.
Behind each cloud however, there is regularly a china lining, as well as you a Malaysian Rakyat will have to urge hard for which china lining to crop up during a coming GE13. When as well as if which happens, you can examination a stipulate in details, checking each notation remuneration as well as commitment. The brand new Lords of Putrajaya will take all necessary actions to put these culprits at a back of bars, as well as terminate a stipulate (like what Pak Lah did to Mahathir's house pet project), as well as to reopen negotiations with a brand new President of China, Xi Jinping.
Malaysia's name stinks in a global market where Government or semi-government projects have been concerned. We have to stop this curse by promoting as well as aiding The March to Putrajaya.

Our Lady of Alice Bhatti, by Mohammed Hanif

We need to speak about Alice. Alice, with her black hair as well as big mouth. With her beautiful physique as well as bad incentive control. Alice, criminal as well as savior, a plant as well as heroine of "Our Lady of Alice Bhatti," a deft, immorality little novel of comic genius by Mohammed Hanif, writer of a prizewinning "Case of Exploding Mangoes."

Nirmra Bucha

Mohammed Hanif


By Mohammed Hanif

239 pp. Alfred A. Knopf. $ 25.95.

Fresh out of jail as well as despite challenging odds, Alice Bhatti, a Catholic nurse in present-day Pakistan, has wrangled a job during Karachi's Sacred Heart Hospital for All Ailments, a cesspit of gangrene as well as incompetence. The "delivery room is a gambling den," a head nurse says. "Everyone comes out a loser." The maternity sentinel itself goes by a grim sobriquet "baby slaughterhouse."

But there's something about Alice. She possesses unnerving gifts: puzzling recovering powers as well as a capability to envision how you will die. She works miracles, is beloved by a residents of a psychiatric ward, though nothing, not even her supernatural ability set, can stem a tide of a passed women:

"There was not a singular day not a singular day when she didn't see a woman shot or hacked, strangled or suffocated, poisoned or burnt, hanged or buried alive. Suspicious husband, hermit protecting his honor, father protecting his honor, son protecting his honor, jilted lover avenging his honor, feuding farmers settling their H2O disputes, moneylenders pciking up their interest: many of life's arguments, it seemed, got settled by you do various things to a woman's body."

"A Case of Exploding Mangoes," Hanif's initial! novel, drew auspicious comparisons to "Catch-22" both have been severe sendups of hold up in a air forces, though a similarities run deeper. Like Joseph Heller, Hanif specializes in a kind of horror as well as humor joined during a root. Stripped of a slapstick as well as sorcery realist special effects, "Alice Bhatti" is a blistering broadside upon a socially sanctioned gorcery of women as well as girls in Pakistan. It's an abecedary of how women have been hunted, how they're choked as well as chopped up as well as thrown away. It's an attempt to assimilate as well as render, with varying degrees of success, what hold up is similar to underneath encircle from a world's oldest, many deadly kind of terrorism. "Cutting up women is a sport comparison than cricket though only as popular as well as similarly full of obscure rituals as well as intricate rules," Hanif writes.

Alice's physique is a bridgehead underneath consistent assault by "lewd gestures, whispered suggestions, uninvited hands upon her bottom." In every scene though one, someone is ogling her, poking or prodding or spiteful her. And oddly enough, a writer joins a ranks of those who can't get sufficient of her substantial charms: "Alice's physique is a single of those miracles of malnourishment, that has resulted in a thin, brittle bone make up with disproportionate breasts," Hanif writes. Alice Bhatti's breasts, once conjured, have been ubiquitous, as well as they enthuse a little terrible, slavering similes. They have been "like Persian cantaloupes that only grow in a dried as well as die if it rains some-more than once every season." They have been observed as well as again, these have been breasts, mind you "cuddling themselves, similar to dual abandoned puppies confusing any other for their mother."

But hang on. Didn't I refer to this book as a work of "comic genius"? It is, these breast-related infelicities aside. Hanif is Andrea Dworkin-earnest upon a topic of violence opposite women, though all else is fair game. He's a puni! sher in a style of Yahweh, Flannery O'Connor as well as Muriel Spark; he's a moralist trussed up as torturer (or is it a other approach around?), with a taste for creation his creations twitch. No a single emerges unscathed. Eyes have been popped out of sockets, penises have been slashed, flies walk lightly into a open mouths of sleeping women. Wild dogs give chase; flower pots have been put to rarely unusual uses.

So we see, any evidence is a good evidence if we already hold in something. Your idea is intact. It does not waver. It is usually which we need to clear as well as urge this belief. So a evidence is not to assistance we believe. You already believe. The evidence is to explain as well as clear your idea as well as have it sound sensible as well as credible.
You already hold in your religion. You already hold in your Prophet. You already hold which there is a God. Your arguments have been to have clarity of a idea which would not routinely have clarity unless we can disagree your belief. In which same spirit, we already have a domestic belief. And to have clarity of! this do mestic idea we additionally need to put brazen various arguments to urge this belief.
This is called arguing in circles. Arguing in circles would be as follows. My sacrament is correct given my Prophet says so. My Prophet is correct given a Holy Book says so. The Holy Book is correct given it came from God by my Prophet.
Okay, let's stop arguing in circles. Today we am starting to be brief as well as brutal. Today we am starting to call a scoop a spade. And if we do not similar to which afterwards we had improved stop celebration of a mass during this indicate as well as go to another Blog or website.Malaysia Todayis not for a faint-hearted.Malaysia Todayis not for those who similar to to read nice things as well as things which dovetail with their idea system.Malaysia Todayis not for those who live in denial syndrome.Malaysia Todayis no holds barred.
Politicians need businessmen to finance them. Businessmen need politicians to have money. This is so in America, in Japan, in Malaysia, as well as in many places in a world.
In Malaysia, however, commercial operation is a domain of a Chinese while politics is a domain of a Malays. There are, of course, Chinese politicians as there have been Malay businessmen. But a Chinese politicians need to obeisance to a Malay politicians usually similar to a Malay businessmen need to 'Ali Baba' with a Chinese businessmen.
Hence we need to see 'unholy alliances' between a Malays as well as Chinese. The Chinese have to assistance a Malays get in to energy as well as a Malays need to assistance a Chinese get commercial operation deals. The Chinese need to have have use of of their income to assistance a Malays get in to energy as well as a Malays need have have use of of their domestic energy to assistance a Chinese get commercial operation deals.
Money is a track to domestic energy as well as domestic energy is a track to making money. They both need eac! h other. One can't live without a other. This is so in America, in Japan, in Malaysia, as well as in many places in a world.
So it does not have a disproportion either it is Barisan Nasional or Pakatan Rakyat, usually similar to it does not have a disproportion either it is Islam or Christianity. Both Islam as well as Christianity apply a same 'logic' of arguing in circles. And both Barisan Nasional as well as Pakatan Rakyat need a same politics-business alliance formula to have it. Business fuels domestic energy as well as domestic energy fuels business. Whether in a United States, Japan or Malaysia, it is all a same.
So, yes, we do wish to see a two-party complement in Malaysia. So, yes, we do wish to see a statute celebration without omnipotence in Parliament as well as a clever antithesis which can keep a statute celebration in check. But we need a third force. We need an 'auditor'. We need a 'police' system. And this purpose contingency be played by us, a people, therakyat, a voters.
What is religion? Religion is a complement of mastery as well as control. Now, please, we repeat, greatfully do not plead this in a context of theology. Let us plead it in a context of history. Theology does not have sense. History does. So we do not wish to plead theology though history.
What was Jesus Christ's mission? Did Jesus deliver a brand new religion? Did Jesus tell his disciples, "God sent me to we so which we can deliver a brand new sacrament to humankind called Christianity"?
Jesus Christ's mission was to break down a complement of priests as well as temples, a eremite hierarchy, which was a domestic system. Jesus longed for to finish a mastery as well as carry out which a complement had over a people. The eremite complement was combined to carry out a people. And Jesus longed for to finish this carry out as well as give energy behind to a people. Before which energy was in a hands of a system.
Hence Jesus Christ was merely ! a leader of a reform movement, a domestic transformation of which time. And which was because they turned on him. Jesus was a threat to a domestic complement of priests as well as temples.
Then, 325 years later, a complement took behind this energy as well as what by afterwards was identified as Christianity again dominated as well as tranquil a people by a origination of a doctrine. And those who resisted were put to death so which eventually usually those who embraced a didactic discourse remained.
Islam went by this same routine 425 years after in 750. First a Umayyads grabbed energy in 661, twenty-nine years after a death of Muhammad. Then, a Abbasids ousted a Umayyads as well as grabbed power. Hence Islam went by a same routine which Christianity went by 425 years earlier. And to clear things, doctrines (such as Hadiths) were combined as well as those who resisted were killed off, usually similar to what happened in Christendom earlier.
In a finish it was all about domestic energy as well as carry out over a people. But in those days it was domestic energy by eremite doctrine. That was what encouraged Emperor Constantine in 325 as well as additionally what encouraged a Umayyads in 661 as well as a Abbasids in 750 -- domestic power.
So, how opposite is it today? Today we have Barisan Nasional as well as Pakatan Rakyat. In those days we had a Umayyads as well as Abbasids and, earlier, a Western as well as Eastern Roman Empires. The Abbasids combined doctrines to clear a ousting of a Umayyads as well as a Eastern Roman Empire combined doctrines to clear a ousting of a Western Roman Empire.
And is not Pakatan Rakyat additionally formulating 'doctrines' to clear a ousting of Barisan Nasional?
Ultimately, it was all about carry out as well as domestic power. It still is. So we contingency have certain which neither Barisan Nasional nor Pakatan Rakyat controls us. Instead, we contingency carry out them. And to do which we contingen! cy rejec t their doctrine. We need to confirm which doctrine.
And which is because politicians have been scared of people who have been independent-minded, usually similar to religionists are. If we have been independent-minded they cannot carry out us. And politics, usually similar to religion, is about carry out as well as power. In fact, sacrament is power, energy over a minds of a people. And is not politics a same?
So, let us demeanour during your arguments again.

'You skip a point, RPK'.
'Don't spin this in to a secular issue, RPK'.
'You need to demeanour during a large picture, RPK'.
'We need to focus, RPK'.
'We first need to change a government, RPK'.
'The crime in BN is many worse, RPK'.
'BN is racist, RPK'.
'What preference do we have? We have been oppressed for some-more than 50 years, RPK'.
'We have been not opposite a Malays, usually opposite a Umno Malays, RPK'.
'What do we expect? The Chinese have faced taste for some-more than 50 years, RPK'.
'Compare things with a Chinese-run Singapore or Penang as well as we can see a large difference, RPK'.
'When we had a Chinese Finance Minister similar to Tan Siew Sin things were many better, RPK'.
'The Chinese got abounding by tough work, RPK'.
'The Malays wish a shortcut to wealth, RPK'.
'Criticising a antithesis is assisting Barisan Nasional to stay in power, RPK'.
'You have been treacherous a voters, RPK'.
'We should speak about all this usually after Pakatan Rakyat takes over, RPK'.
'After Pakatan Rakyat takes over we can purify out a debase in Pakatan Rakyat, RPK'.
'If we do not support Pakatan afterwards we contingency be a Barisan stooge, RPK'.

What indicate is which which we have missed? What large picture? Foc! us on wh at?
What preference do we have? You have a choice, a preference to determine your own destiny.
You faced oppression as well as taste for 50 years? Who voted for a same celebration for 50 years?
No lah, stop justifying as well as raising sore excuses. You have been a victim of your own creation. Nobody did anything to you. You did all this to yourself. For thousands of years, people have authorised themselves to be manipulated, controlled, dominated, oppressed, suppressed, etc. They even combined sacrament as well as doctrines to legitimise it. And afterwards they roar blue murder.
we can't see a large picture? Yes, we can. The large design is really clear to me. It is about not giving anyone power. It is about taking behind power. It is about energy contingency be in a hands of a people.
Do we know what people similar to me have been called? They would call me an anarchist. Anarchists have been against to all forms of government. Anarchists have been opposite all forms of mastery as well as control. All governments have been bad. All forms of mastery as well as carry out have been bad. So we am an radical as well as unapproachable of it.
