Bravo UKM4!

The BN government, stupid as it is, has made some good survival decisions in the past. One of them is to silence university students.

Nothing spells firebrand like a young student discarding his teens and embracing his 20s. It's an exciting age, it's a world of revelations.

The Mahathir administration made it illegal for even political science students to be involved in politics. That is tantamount to forbidding an engineering student from undertaking industrial training.

The protest was meek, if anything. So the Act went ahead and the students were silenced.

But no more.

In a landmark decision, Section 15 of the AUKU -- Act disallowing student participation in politics -- was considered unconstitutional. One judge had the moral fortitude and sense of justice.

A lot of people chastised the UKM4 for being on the ground at Hulu Selangor. But they have paved the way for a wrong to finally be corrected.

The ingrown and inbred ruling elite view young people as potential "human resources" or "cannon fodder." They don't give a flying fuck (pardon my Avianese) about ideas and ideals - nor do they wish to see independent-minded, courageous and upstanding citizens emerge to challenge the corrupt status quo. Please understand where demented dodos like Mahathir Mohamad and his Umno Baru robber barons are coming from, Crankster. They're barely emerging from the 15th century, give them another 600 years to mature!
