SINCE I’ve been back I have not been reading the news. Partly that is because I have so much work to do. But I have to admit that I am also very disinclined to read the news because, well, most of it is dreadful. There is absolutely nothing cheery about it, nothing that makes me feel that there’s light ahead or anything to look forward to.
it has been an uneven year for Malaysia Baharu, but Malaysians should take pride that in this chaotic violent world today, we were arguably the only developing country that changed governments through the ballot box, without a single drop of blood being shed.
SOMETIMES when I read the horrific toxic messages that go around WhatsApp groups, I have to wonder about my people. Do we enjoy being whipped up into agitation? Do we find reading bad news pleasurable? Is it really blissful to wallow in ignorance? Don’t we mind being manipulated by irresponsible people?
