Noises, voices and choices


"The care of human life and happiness . . . is the first and only object of good government."  – Thomas Jefferson, 3rd US  President



These three interactions define voters’ participation in the strange wilderness of politics. It keeps feeding the enigma despite the noises and voices in Parliament that chronically represent our misguided choices. It’s a predictable self-infliction of anguish.


Robert T. Kiyosaki’s reminder that “you and only you are responsible for your life choices and decisions” ought to clear our conscience, and send a clear message on the perils of cause and effect. Self-guidance certainly helps.


Choices are coerced into the national psyche by the ruling political hegemon via noises and voices that dampens dissent and protest. Something stinks to high heavens when you have to scream, claw and fight for fundamental rights.


The Bar and the Bench ought to take advantage of the so-called doctrine of the separation of powers to create its own choices, noises and voices that have intellectual honesty and potency to the give the Executive constant mind-healing headaches.


Choices, too, like ideas have consequences. Most of them cause unstoppable agony when government controls the levers of noises, voices and choices. The rakyat must lubricate these levers as a civic duty.


PMX’s scorecard paints a dismal picture: failure to shore up the ringgit; prosecute corruption and stop the stokers of hatred and disunity. YDPA announced the honeymoon is over. Bees better watch out.


“Leadership is a choice, not a rank,” advised Simon Sinek. It has fallen on deaf ears. We are led by subjective noises, narcissistic voices instead of objective choices. The calibre of Malaysian leaders is yet to be tested beyond the realms of predictability.


A fascist government forces choices on its people. General Colin Powell reportedly remarked that ‘you cannot make someone else’s choices. You shouldn’t let someone else make yours.’ America would be great again if it followed this simple advice.


Most politicians lack leadership because, as Napoleon Hill observed, “a man of decision cannot be stopped! The man of indecision cannot be started! Take your own choice.” Practical education is a daily chore and a welcome choice.


PMX has to send his aides and advisors for primer sessions in practical leadership. Decision-making should not be controlled by noises, voices and choices of the patently semi-qualified who got elected by equally semi-qualified voters.


Those that promote religious beliefs must discipline themselves to put to practice what is commanded in their scriptures as an act of obeisance. Religious texts underscore tolerance, moderation and obedience that Malaysians must apply for a daily spiritual experience, and not merely as a religious ritual or routine.


Section 505(B) and (C) of the Penal Code are soft slaps on the wrists of certain incendiaries masquerading as upcoming political leaders. Causing fear and alarm, disturbing the public order, or inciting one community against another, frighten away foreign investors.


PMX will face the voters in GE-16. The cancel culture is upon him. He seems under…
