“Some people can whine till the cows come home when things didn’t turn out to be what they expect it to be, but has no sense of social responsibility. They pushed their concerns to others, and thought it is others duty to take care of the world, whilst they happily takes care of themselves. Don’t they know that it’s people like them who chooses not to do anything whilst they can which is why, how and where we are in the state we are in today?
Counting the days when they are younger and more capable then, they have conveniently forgotten to stand up for our rights when they should by right fight, so that we can at least appreciate them for trying their best to fix the wrong, and doing something right for our sake.
Instead, I see them now trying to lecture us on their brand of living, telling us to give up the fight, that it is a lost cause. It is people like lky, who held on to his belief, breathing down tunku’s neck and tell him we are on the wrong direction before he was sacked, who deserves the salutation. It was him with David marshall alongside others who helped us gain Malaya’s independence. It is people like them whom after a century or so, who could tilt their gaze high and said they have tried, and did not become someone else’s useless forefather. Unlike those whom when they had the chance to speak, to help, to contribute, to stand up and be counted, and has the strength and civic morality to make it good again, did not, and chose not to sacrifice nor volunteer, nor being a part of, but went about chasing their own dream, oblivion to the state we are in.
So it’s not about what they know that we don’t know. In fact we know better than them who sits and watch the world go by and complain when others suck dry our country. And complain yet again when their salary is high. It is about what they did not do, that now, we are trying to deal with, to get it done. If I may be so unkind, since they can’t help, tell them to stop circulating their ‘I told you so’ hypothesis and wrap up their fearful tendencies within the comforts of their blanket. Sleep with it. Sweep it under their carpet of should do’s but did not. And hide their perpetually selfishness.
Stop listening to people like this. If I may I regard people like this as useless variants of society. More deadly than Covid-19.”
