Yup, we're all still struck by the Yellow Fever.
Just look at your Facebook wall. Almost EVERYONE is talking about it. And even arguing on who's right and wrong.
If you're one of my 700 friends on Facebook, you'd know who I am for.
On the opposing hand, Bersih 2.0 is the opposition plot to topple the current ruling party. Those who think that our goverment is doing an excellent job in ruling our country would definitely be against this. Why do we want to cause disharmony in an already peaceful country? Plus, the rally is a huge inconvinience for everyone in KL - being stuck in the jam for hours, plans cancelled. And also, what would the tourist and people from other countries think of Malaysia? We'd definitely drive them away, hence a loss in tourism income.
And on the other, Bersih 2.0 is what it is. A rally for a cleaner electoral. Whoever believes in a cleaner electoral, can join in. Whether you are for or against the government. Dirty politics do happen on both sides, right? So whoever wins the next General Election, it has to be based on true People Power. We want a cleaner election so we can have a ruling party who can actually do something to help our nation e.g. giving back the poorest state its riches back. It may cause a huge inconvenience to the people in KL for a day - but some has already gone through half a century of inconvenience. As for thinking what would people think, why bother when we have already been a laughing stock and other countries seem to be cool with our fellow Malaysians holding peaceful rallies all over the world.
Who's right and who's wrong?
We are all entitled to our own opinion. We will believe what we want to believe - no matter how much facts and non-facts are laid out for us. And the arguing could go on forever because we already chose to believe our own opinion.
The same goes with the media. Whether you choose to believe the mainstream or alternative, it is your choice and nobody can change your stand. Until something/somebody really fucks up and destroys their angelic perception in your eyes.
Therefore, I decided to withdraw from this arguing and the 'forcing each other's beliefs onto each other'.
What I'm sure of is, we all love our country. And that's why we're arguing over who's destroying our beloved land.
So when we're over this Yellow Fever, let's go back to liking and commenting each other's status updates, links and blogs, yeah?
