Fencesitting For A Reason

I always think that people who choose to get themselves involved in
Malaysian politics are doing it for their own personal gains and benefit
rather than for the people in their constituencies who voted for them in
the first place. There are obviously some very few who aren’t but they
are severely outnumbered by those who are. I would say most of the
politicians who are of the ruling coalition party have become apple
polishers rather than truly championing for the rights of the people
they are representing. It’s all about pleasing the masters without due
discrimination or worse, proper implementation plan (think along the
lines of the many changes in the education policy in the last few
months), just so that they remain “favorable” to continue receiving
their “benefits”. On the other side of the fence, we’ve got a bunch of
zealots who are hellbent on preaching and shoving their ideals down
people’s throats without considering all aspects of it like how it will
affect people of varying ethnicity in this country and their ever so
condescending “holier than thou” attitude towards everyone who don’t
share their values. Certainly reason enough for me to stay away from
politics with these kind of things going on. At least my conscience is
clear knowing that I’m not involved in something that I think is for the
wrong cause and intent.
