Ukraine, Russia and a new world order
ONE of my earliest recollections of war was Iraq's invasion of Kuwait in 1991. I recall it because whenever I would quarrel with my elder sister, my mother would refer to my sister as Iraq as she was older, myself as Kuwait and herself as America – the one attempting to make peace.
The anti vaccine challenge
People opposed to vaccines do not like to be called anti-vaxxers. They find it a pejorative term, and rightly so. It is not meant to uplift but a reflection of misinformation and deception.
A fair reckoning
It has been some months since my last column. I took some time off to reflect and digest what has happened to our country over the past few months. My only hope is that next year will be better than the last two years for all of us.
The unravelling of Umno
IN the early hours of Thursday (July 8), Umno president Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi delivered what some have billed as a scorching address against the Perikatan Nasional government led by Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.
Perikatan’s New Deal – points to ponder
TO say that the last three years have been topsy-turvy is an understatement.
Gerakan's path forward
AMERICAN author, Stephen Kinzer stated that “alliances and partnerships produce stability when they reflect realities and interests.”
A memorable memoir?
Malaysia's usually polarised political discourse has been even more polarised since the release of former attorney general Tan Sri Tommy Thomas' memoirs.
Are lockdowns the answer?
A little over a year ago, we were confronted by a rising political temperature and rumours of a national political equation change. As this happened, many of us were equally concerned over a virus emerging from Wuhan in China.
Debating on the doctrine of basic structure
AFTER an extended break, I have returned to penning this column.
A struggle for normalcy
It has been a while since my last column. I have been preoccupied with my work after the transition from the movement control order (MCO) to the conditional MCO. There was so much left-over from before the MCO that had to be completed when the conditional MCO was implemented.
Planning for the end of lockdowns
AFTER almost two months of movement restriction to varying degrees around the world to curb the outbreak of Covid-19, some governments have started the process of re-opening their countries and easing the "lockdown" restrictions.
MCO musings: A reflection
Everything feels strange, unusual and quite frankly unbelievable. However, there is also a feeling that we have seen it unfold before. On our televisions or in cinemas – we have seen many movies depicting the circumstances unfolding now.
