Only 5000+ Malaysians Care about Malaysia?

The numbers are a little pathetic and reflects poorly on many Malaysians who may be afraid or not really bothered about the nation according to this malaysiakini article.

It looks like people in Pakistan and Burma are more patriotic when it comes to matters of protecting the nation. In Malaysia, the oil and gas is still flowing and many just don't care anymore while public coffers are being squandered.

It's the "Just leave me alone. I'm all right, Jack" and "What can I do?" mentality as the silent majority plod on in their daily routines.

The poll on my site also has the strongest response to request a RCI and secondly to set up a tribunal. Both these choices account for about 80% of the 600 people who responded.

Kawan,

2 years ago, I don't think we would have even garnered 500 signatures.

I am encouraged by the 5000++ signatures and the fact that they still continue to come in.

Of course, I fully agree that more Malaysians must rise to defend our constitution, the institutions established thereunder and our civil liberties guaranteed.

Let's hope this is the start of a greater things to come.

I am, as always, anak Bangsa Malaysia,

Haris
