Well what do you expect...
With thiefs ruling the DPR[Legislature] and the Mahkamah Agung [Judiciary], small
wonder when Transparency International published their latest figure. Indonesia
ranks 137 out of 159 countries when it comes to business transparency.
Just recently, we saw suharto's golden child being released from prison. This is for
the guy who was convicted of conspiring to kill one of the judges. Well, the judge is
dead, and now tommy walks free. And, by the way, he will eventually walks free
from all corruption charges, some pending and some buried, as well, guranteed.
The irony of it all, come the next election, the golkar party which single handedly
destroyed, not to mention pillaged the outer island minorities, will be back in power.
And, then I was asking why? Is it because indonesians are so dumb and stupid that
they can't think about how to improve themselves? Is it because of apathy?
One would wonder, for more than three decades under suharto's thumbs and another
decade under nobody knows feet, indonesians are plain tired. They're tired. A great
many can't even sustain their daily living with what they have. The other half are just
to busy to make sure they have something to eat the next day, the next week or the
next month. They don't have time to think anymore. They're just plain tired and too
And, now here, we've seen purnomor and the likes talking about military hardware and
the so happy life in indonesia. Hm..., interesting. When the figure still reads like this:
40 percent of indonesia's 100+ millions of workforce is either unemployed or underemployed-
a staggering 40 million people, It's not a happy and fine life in indonesia. It's atrocious.
Maybe, yhe only sollution is to simply cut off the entire two generations of politicians.
Indonesia should get rid of all the 70's, 60's and earlier politicians, judges and militaries.
Yup, Indonesia will have to depend on its 80's generation to move forward. Indonesia
needs to start fresh and new to give it a chance to compete in the global world.
I look at indonesia now, and I say: there's still hope. Although this could be the last one
before this country implodes into millions of debris of irrelevance.
