Quest for Liberty

"Every violation of truth is not only a sort of suicide in the liar, but is a stab at the health of human society." -- Ralph Waldo Emerson

My passion for the subject of "Civil Liberties" has grown since my law school's days. It is just natural in me that those stories of sheer foolishness, corruptness, injustice, inequality and violation of truth get on my nerves, especially those taking place in bolehland. I am not perfect but I believe that a good leader on his conscience should care for the people above his own pecuniary interest. Sadly, this seems to be the opposite in bolehland ~ most MPs (Morons of the Parliament) are trying so hard to scrap every inch of our rich resources for their own palaces (some are distastefully decorated) and Mercedes Benz!

I have read too many well-written articles and blogs online that jitter me to express my own views. Nevertheless, though I may sound naive or idealistic, I have decided to give it a shot ~ to say something in the standpoint of a young professional lady. In reality, most Malaysian young ladies are apathetic of politics. All they care about are fashion, make-ups and relationship issues that are repetitively propagandized by the women magazines. A female friend of mine actually "advised" me to accept the political reality in bolehland. Some ladies shun me (though some men seem accepting) when I start sharing my political views. Well, I may tolerate all "evils" to stay and live in bolehland for the time being, but nothing would change my stance in pursuit of truth, justice, fairness, freedom and equality.

In the course of such pursuit, please forgive my blunt sarcasm, as well as my intellectual inadequacy.
p/s: I read that there will be an internet code of ethics prepared by the government of bolehland. Are we losing this platform for freedom of speech soon?
