Orwellian

It was a good friend from Australia who pointed out this article in the Malaysian Insider: Facebook, Twitter foster national security threats, say police

You really should read the whole article, but I shall reproduce an excerpt here to give you a flavour of what is being preached to the masses:

Internal security and public order director Datuk Salleh Mat Rasid said the Internet posed a challenge to the police as it allowed people “to know what was going on in and outside the country”.

This would encourage those who have been “influenced by liberal thinking” to replicate locally what was happening in other countries, Utusan Malaysia quoted him as saying today.

This is positively Orwellian. You would think it is something new and original but George Orwell described it in his book 1984 very succinctly.

To summarise, it is the policy of control by propaganda, surveillance, misinformation, denial of truth, and manipulation of the past.


The question is, why do people not grow alarmed at how blatantly those in power are trying to control us?

Here's why. Read this bit from the UK's Daily Mail about the Malaysian student in the Tottenham Riots.

And he was also critical of the police. ‘The police in Malaysia would have taken action sooner,’ he said.

‘Your police let it grow and grow until it was out of control. I don’t understand why people were allowed to run riot and rob in that way.

'Here in Malaysia the police can catch you and grab you if you do something wrong. But in Britain it seems that you cannot.’

Malaysia’s government is known for being authoritarian, but Mr Rossli said: ‘After this happened, people asked Ashraf why he went outside when there were riots and he replied, “Because in Malaysia we are always free to walk outside”.

'We have a tough government in Malaysia, but when something like this happens, they take action. They don’t let it get out of control. The streets are safe.’

You and I know that this is a load of hogwash. Pure rubbish. Unadulterated garbage. Utter crap. Pristine bullsh!t.

In Malaysia, we aren't always free to walk outside. We can get beaten quite severely by the police.

Ask peaceful candlelight vigil participants that have been rushed by the police and arrested.

Evidently, the police CAN catch and grab you even if you DON'T do anything wrong. The streets are NOT safe, thanks to the police.

And when an event like ABU (Anything But UMNO) takes place and gangsters try to wreak havoc and intimidate innocent civillians, the police are nowhere to be found. Ask anyone who has been for the ABU event in Klang.

But not everyone knows, because not everyone WANTS to know the sordid truth about the Malaysian government.

Ignorance isn't always bliss.

Certainly not when it becomes so easy to spot the government as a fascist regime.

Fascist Indeed!

He is one of the pampered ones, so he wouldn't want to let on that the puppet police in Malaysia are the ones who are the starters and enders of anything untoward that happens on our streets.

They carry out orders, handed down to them...


What prompt action is he talking about, the release of tear-gas, water cannons laced with chemicals.And the appearance of riot police replete with batons, head gear and aggression.

He cannot fool the people in England with a few smug words.

Najib has been working very hard, infact so hard that no words can describe. He has even lost drastic amounts of weight. He is in this alone, one man show. This is the first GE that i find the word 'UMNO'not as live as the PM's Name. His High End PR Consultants are guiding him very well. If BN wins, i will say that the PM went into it alone and Won alone. UMNO/BN didn't win.

Has the Opposition lost some credibility? i would think so. Just last month i forsaw a hung parliament. Today i feel that with PM's hard work, maybe he will achieve a simple majority.

In the world of politics, 2 weeks is a lifetime. Anything can happen. Human beings are fickle and forget easily. In a country of abject poverty like ours, money can easily buy one over.
