The actual Malaysian deal

Real issues: Much needs to be done to address the less talked about problems in the public sphere such as the wide income disparities, deliberate inequitable distribution of income and unequal access to life opportunities in the country.

Without tangible mechanisms, the concepts of good governance, accountability and transparency will remain as political slogans and topics for academic discussions. 

HERE is the real deal for Malaysia, in my view anyway. First is the acknowledgment of the realities of life and the realities of Malaysia. Second is the understanding of the global and universal reality. Third is understanding of being a human being. Last is the understanding of the reality of politics and politicians.
