Party, government and society
"Representation is but silent regress."
– Abhijit Naskar
“The party controls the government and the government controls the society, and there is little room for philosophical or political diversity,” observed Mark R. Levin in his American Marxism. This calls for unmanipulated education designed, structured, fortified and empowered by the underlying necessity of vigorous debate and discussion.
Education since the early 20th century was engineered to indoctrinating young minds. Social engineering policies and programs fell into hands of the likes of John Dewey (1859-1952), an American educational reformer who sculpted and cast education in a permanent death-grip.
Unwanted and unwelcomed Deweyism reached our shores too with social engineering through education and religion being confused with social justice. Party, government and society, as law-abiding promissory notes, must turn to the supreme law of the land for direction, instruction, correction and resurrection. Illustration: the usage of Malay as the National Language of Malaysia.
Article 152(1)(a) and (b) of the Federal Constitution (FC) clearly states that “no person” shall be prohibited or prevented from using, or from teaching or learning any other language other than the Malay language which is the National Language. No discrimination entertained.
Article 161 FC underscores the use of English and native languages in Sabah and Sarawak. Section 17(1) of the Education Act 1996 empowers the minister to exempt educational institutions from using Malay as the main medium of instruction. Section 4 of the National Language Act empowers the Agong to permit the use of English for official purposes as His Majesty may deem fit. Translation: freedom of language.
