The Chinese are a very practical people says Chua Soi Lek. Soi lek must of course be referring to the Chinese apparent indifference to his sexual escapades. By that reasoning, the Chinese must also be indifferent to whatever stories are said of Anwar Ibrahim and they should be indifferent to Najib’s overextended and boring self-praising assessment of his Alphabet Soup vision.Ah Jib Gor does what Ah Jib Gor does best-tell tall stories mostly about himself.
I don’t think being practical means, they accept corruption, wheeling and dealing with the powers that be, accepting hegemony from others. If they are like that- that’s not being practical but being sly and acting like hustlers. The ‘thing’ that made the Chinese practical is economic independence. So being practical as in economically independent, the Chinese can exercise wider choices. They will chose to side with PRakyat. That’s practical and acknowledging reality.
The truth is, we don’t use the same antiquated maths book. We are reading a book scripted and written by the people that says, we the people, have had enough with corrupt UMNO led government.
The Chinese now has a choice- to be an MCA Chinese, lackey and errand boy for UMNO living under UMNO hegemony and domination or to become a better Chinese and be part of the political process to kick out the corrupt government. I am sure, being practical people the Chinese understand that we do not inherit this world from our forbears, but borrow it from our children. we owe it to our Children and progeny to make this world a better world. There is a better world without UMNO!
