1. 20 Cent - December 11, 2007

And so the opening gambit has now been dealt.

Under the guise of ‘public safety’, the ruling coalition has – to itself, anyway – recouped it losses and stepped up to the table with a grin on spotty their faces.

Never one for subtlety, the ruling coalition has struck forcefully and upped the stakes, either assuming it knows the cards others hold, or confident of the cards it does hold.

To them it is a game. To us, it is our lives.

The gomen has greatly erred.

The Standard Operating Procedure to SQUASH protest/demos/rallies is ALWAYS to arrest the LEADER/S and or HEROES. How the Special Branch identify the leader/heroes is to look through photos and nowadays videos and also on the spot observations during such events. The leaders will be doing the following:-

1) making speeches.
2) exhorting the supporters by shouting
3) facing the crowd of supporters.

Once ALL the leaders are identified then crackdowns happens. This event shows that the SB is now quite certain who are the Major Players/Heroes.

What the gomen failed to see is that during times of real crisis, everybody is A LEADER/HERO. Examples are aplenty of people heroes cf. Philipines case.

Refer also the gomen’s fixation on leaders i.e Space Tourist, Everest, North/South Poles, sailing and other stupid activities and also creation of master and famous Bumi Entrepreneurs for the population to follow.

The gomen failed to understand that vast sections of the Malaysian populace consider themselves to be “self-heroes” in the sense that they the rakyat dun need a hero to follow them. Life is already so damn tough for the average rakyat that they dun give a damn for the gomen’s fake heroes/leaders thrust upon them. (PLS EXCUSE EXPLETIVE COZ SO DAMN SORE AND MAD)

Hence I expect that the arrests of what the gomen think are the rakyat’s HEROES will have NO EFFECT on the rakyat at all.

Again the gomen has greatly erred. Taking away the rakyat’s LEADERS/HEROES will instead have an opposite effect instead.
