There was a post in there with which I completely identified with, regarding collective action.
You know what's wrong with us Malaysians? We talk a lot.
And these days, the jaw-lubricating action has been translated to typing. Heck, Malaysia Today receives over a million hits, and you and I know how many comments are posted every single day.
It's immense. Monstrous. Unbelievable.
But what is even more unbelievable is that we are quite capable of saying one thing and doing another. We wax lyrical about how the government's actions are unacceptable and unreasonable, and earnestly pledge to oppose it in anyway possible.
So what exactly are we doing? Not much I'd say. Zewt gives an example:
Then there was a time when MT was distributing car stickers for a particular reason and comments flooded in to ask where people can get it and how many claimed they will put it up in support of MT.
Until today, I have yet to see a single car with MT car sticker. Heck, I don’t even know how it looks like!
I know what he's talking about. As far as I can see, I'm the only dudette proudly and defiantly displaying the sticker on my car.
My parents have frowned with disapproval. They warned me that my nifty little Toyota Vios was going to get vandalised by pro-government hooligans.
Folks. That sticker has been up for a year, and nothing has happened.
I still remain the solitary display car modelling Malaysia Today. Like Zewt observes, I haven't seen anyone else having it on.
Seriously, folks. What else do we need to motivate us to walk our talk?
The goddamn Pussycat Dolls in a saree???
