Democracy is not Perfect
Democracy is an overrated idea. It can and is currently being abused by the powers that be. The trick is to divide and conquer (redraw the geographical borders of constituencies; pit between races and pit between religious groups). The trick is to manipulate and withhold the truth from the masses (control the mainstream mass media); the trick is to ensure there are enough people who are vulnerable (poor, destitute - they are easily bought with very little money); the trick is to ensure there are enough ignorance (screw up the education system; generate exam oriented, parroting ‘intellects’); why do you think the West propagate democracy like a religion? what is the prawn behind the stone? Look at what BN is doing to our country and there is your answer.
