I have been told, many times, that things will be done to me, stuff will be thrown my way and even physical harm would happen to me if I persist in doing what I do on my facebook and in my blog. I have been “punished” by facebook many times in the past and put in Facebook “jail” for reasons best known to FB more times than I care to talk about. When they do that to me I have never appealed against the decision of FB “who must be obeyed”. I wait for my “jail term” to be over and then continue to do more of what I have been doing before I was put in “jail” by FB. On my blog, there have been extended periods when the powers that be in Putrajaya banned you guys from accessing steadyaky47. There have been extended periods when the telcos in Malaysia have banned access to my blog for their clients. And then there have been many malicious attempts to disrupt my “activities” on social media. All this, as many bloggers know, is par for the course when you blog. You can also add to this the incessant abuses, hurtful and odious comments hurled my way by people in social media for reasons best known to themselves. Blogging is “interesting”. All that I have tried to do is to answer the question you guys have got about government and those who do government. About politics and those who do politics. Anything else I post on my blog is about life and how it is lived by you, me and anyone else I care to write about.
Social media is amazing. Social media allows us to connect and publish in real-time. Social media can also be hurtful, deceitful. fake and full of lies. If I am to ask myself why I do this damm blogging thing that at times drives me up the wall …I can only say this…we all together did get rid of Najib, Rosmah, BN, and people of their genre from the face of politics for at least the next five years after the last GE. Did we not? And maybe, if we get our act together, we can do that again for another five years. To whom we will do that and for what reason is a work in progress.
But before the next five years is won, we…you and I …will have to go through another “Pru14” again in the coming months if not years before the next PRU. We will have to do that in the face of what corruption and illegal money can do and have done to our nation for the past many decades when our nation was under BN. Whether we do this with PH or without PH, with Mahathir or without Mahathir, with Kit Siang, Anwar and people of their genre, or without them, is to be seen. It would seem to me that some of these people that I have just mentioned and others like them, are beginning to lose sight of the things that had mattered to all of us before PRU14. Integrity, responsibility, accountability, good governance and all those “stuff” that we have been fighting for. Let me remind you guys that it is not about racism religion or politics anymore. Today most of us want what is right for all Malaysian. Today what we want is good governance. We want good leaders and for these leaders to understand that they serve the rakyat not themselves. This is what we want. Ignore our wants at your peril. If you do, tiada maaf bagi mu.
And so the stage is set for what is to come in the next few years. Let the games begin.
