Just like Christopher Hitchens- my own opinion is enough for me, and I claim the right to have it defended against any consensus, any majority, any where, any place, any time.
Najib is not alright, He is not- unless you have forsaken principles and values. It is especially alarming with the Malays. They seem to excuse wrongdoings if committed by a fellow Malay and Muslim.
We cannot have a manifestly crooked man running the country. As we shall eventually discover, what he did with 1MDB, the money from SRC and the donation of RM2.6 billion and the yet unaccountable missing RM4 billion reflect, the true measure of the man. Of all our PMs, he is the one most cunning and untrustworthy.
He brings into office the low class politics of the UMNO bahagians- that every opposition to his leadership can be neutralised by paying those who are opposed to him. Hence his personal motto- cash is king. Second, he believes that whatever money passes through his office, is his. Hence money belonging to the country is his to do as he wishes.
The combination of these two ingredients make up the recipe for a dictatorship. A dictator with the smiling face.
I am afraid that if we don't take out Najib politically, we will end up being ruled by a dictator. The essence of a dictator is his whimsical rule. The whole country is on edge not knowing what he will do next. We already had a taste of what he has done; all those draconian laws of POCA, POTA, SOSMA and the latest, the NSC bill. All designed to keep him in power and destroy any opposition. The means for people to express themselves are gagged up- the vibrant online newspapers are closed down one by one. He is the dictator with the smiling face, with a knife behind his back. He dupes many people.
