It is Malaysia’s independence day today on the 31st of August 2021. Unfortunately I have no mood for it. Malaysia’s state is horrible so why should I even celebrate it’s independence? Clearly we are not able to run our own country. I’d rather it be colonised. All we do is destroy each other due to greed for money and power. We’ve failed to build a strong and loving nation. Only a selfish and judgemental one. I had hope before but now I’m just giving up. It is like a cancer and it has spread too much and too far. I don’t know how we’ll ever recover from the damage. Will we ever be an evolved nation and finally have a better quality of life? Will humanity prevail? I only see hatred and frustration.
Do the people of Malaysia even realise? We tried to fight for a better leader with #Lawan, rejecting the Prime Minister that we did not vote for. Instead we were taken as a joke by removing the PM and replacing him with another PM we did not want. Where is the democracy we were promised as our country was gaining independence from the British? Sometimes I think that the people deserve the leader they have received. Although, at the same time, the people were shaped in such a way because of the trust they had in previous leaders. All mistakes have led us to this day. Malaysia is completely mismanaged.
On a lighter note, I am quite impressed with Syed Saddiq and his ways with politics. He had also created MUDA (Malaysian United Democratic Alliance) . I sense no hidden agenda when it comes to him. He seems to have truly joined politics to serve his country. I was quite disappointed to learn that MUDA’s request to register to run for elections was rejected for no clear reason.
I really cannot imagine the future of Malaysia. It was bright at first but now it’s as dark as in a tunnel. I can’t seem to see the light at the end yet. I know that I’m lucky because I now live in France and was lucky enough to leave before the pandemic started. I still have strong love for my country and wish for it to rise. I can only hope for the best and keep tabs on what’s happening there as well as do my part in sharing useful information. If I were there physically, I would definitely join the marches, the protests and the riots. All for the love of my country. Happy Independence Day, Malaysia.
