The new line of Cabinet was announced yesterday and sadly, it was responded with sighs. The world seemed to stop for a moment, silent, as if wondering what would happen next. Sometimes, when things get too quiet, we become nervous. Especially seeing how quiet our enemies are, as if they ‘bless’ the new appointed cabinet. Because all these while, our enemies have never agreed to anything we did.
Most rakyat and undecided voters voted for Barisan Nasional in GE13 because they fear if victory goes to Pakatan Rakyat and now, they could not help but to wonder their vote helped BN win, or just to help BN head towards losing.
For some reason, majority rakyat are not happy even though most mainstream media tried to ‘please’ but saying that the new cabinet is the best. Some rakyat somehow have their doubt on the new line of leadership.
Perhaps rakyat have been putting high expectations over leadership. This is not surprising because we are ‘used’ to the dynamic and strict leadership by Tun Mahathir for 22 years, and we could not really get used to anything different than that.
Tun Mahathir has led Malaysia a lot more forward with his strict approach as he faces big power, he dared to challenge Zionists, criticizing Soros, swift actions in defending the country, drives the economy as well as did not hesitate to offer help to Muslims around the world.
Despite of being hit with criticisms, he is consistent and focused in his plans up to the part where the ones who criticized him had to admit that he is right. Chinese which previously labeled him as Ultra-Malay finally admit that he is not racist, and gave their support to him.
The lesson which we can take on the glory of Malaysia during Tun Mahathir’s era is that being strict is important, not popularity. From there, Malaysia became a harmonious and dignified country.
If learning for success is not enough then lets look at what we learn from failure where Malaysia ‘tumbled down’ soon after Tun Mahathir resigned. Why?
Because the new leadership approach back then was the opposite of what was done by Tun Mahathir where it puts popularity in front instead of strictness.
Thus, rakyat whom voted for Barisan Nasional the other day were really hoping that leadership style can go the other way around again, just like how it was before. The era where not just our economy was strong, the matter of racial and the country’s dignity was also very strong.
Terrorism threats as well as colonization of the new millennium is no longer something we read in newspapers or tv. Instead, it is a lot closer to our lives. That is why those who previously too lazy to vote, has now actually voted for BN so that the threats can be stopped, so that we can focus on developing the country.
At this moment, rakyat are nervous looking at how the country’s enemies roam free spreading lies and causing damages without having to face any consequences.
If most rakyat first questions ‘what is the government waiting for?’. the next question should be ‘what is the government scared of?’
All these questions should be answered as soon as possible by the new line of cabinet.
Rakyat can only hope that their nervousness can be wiped away soon. Now, it is up to those who are appointed to ensure that rakyat’s nervousness do not turn to annoyance.
