NUMEROUS attempts have been suggested, tabled, discussed and proposed by various stakeholders in the pursuit of improving our education system. We were hopeful and full of optimism in 2011 when the idea of the Malaysia Education Blueprint 2013-2025 (MEB) was first mooted.

MY salutations and congratulations to DSP Hajiji for his ground-breaking announcement on “Revamp of the Corporate Policy and Governance Monitoring Committee” on 13 June 2021. Together with Masidi’s earlier statement, this is a HISTORICAL NATIONAL FIRST in MALAYSIA to revamp the biggest elephant in the economy. The GLC mess has been in the making for a very long time. Sabah’s massive investments in GLCs have yielded little return, most of the time, none or negative.

THERE are three systems of privileges that are operating in Malaysia: race, religion and titles. All of them are intended to confer privileges to certain groups and come with exclusive economic benefits for those who are favored by these systems.

“THE expression God helps those who help themselves is an ancient proverb. It stresses how important it is to be able to come to your own aid and take initiative in life, and not to just wait for and rely on divine intervention, or on the help of others for that matter.

The West’s Decline. ALL of us have been brought up, indoctrinated that the West’s political/democratic system is best. Unquestionably, we have aspired, ope the West in our dressing, food, culture, music. The weaker nations, colonised, disenfranchised, subservient for 30o years, have swallowed wholesale their so-called fairness, human rights, free competition, globalization, and rule-based world system.

WE have only 10 years left! The intergovernmental panel on climate change predicts this is the amount of time we have left to implement change before a global temperature rise of 1.5°C becomes irreversible. If we want to have a cooler future, sacrificing more forests for urban development is no longer a viable option.
