It's Malay Empowerment, Stupid

Not supremacy, maybe primacy, probably leadership, certainly empowerment. The article by Rashid Yusof on Ketuanan Melayu, the concept coined by an ex-ISA detainee and today championed by another ex-ISA detainee, is refreshing. The NST Associate Editor's attempt to come up with an exact definition of the phrase "ketuanan Melayu" is brave and noble but I'm afraid he won't have the support of many, certainly not from those who are gaining (political mileage) from the misunderstood concept and certainly don't want anyone, least of all the Malays, to know any better.


Excerpts from his column that appeared in the NST on Wednesday:

The term "ketuanan Melayu" has had the misfortune of attracting the English translation of "Malay supremacy".

Malay supremacy tends to be loosely and harshly associated at some levels with white supremacy and that of right-wing movements across the world.

Really, the overarching, unifying theme of ketuanan Melayu had been "empowerment" or, as an inspiring writer from a different time defined it, Malay sovereignty -- chronicling the self-determination of a people brought under colonial rule for four centuries.

Perhaps the equal of ketuanan Melayu is Black Empowerment that greeted the end of apartheid in South Africa.

During the early days of Perkasa circa post-March 2008, there was already a concern that the phrase "Ketuanan Melayu" might be used against the Malays. In one Perkasa forum that I covered, a professor (now deceased) told his audience that the concept did not mean Malay Supremacy. "Try Malay primacy, it's perhaps a more accurate translation," he said.

Syed Zahari, one of the longest ISA detainees in Singapore or Malaysia, once told an interview that it's not Ketuanan Melayu that the Malays (or UMNO) should be concerned about. It's Kepimpinan Melayu (Malay leadership), he said.

Agreed.

Who is stupid, maybe you, we live in the 21Century. Every nation is moving forward, not interested in petty issues of racism.

Leaders guide their people on the path to success. What has the past got to do with us, no one is oppressing any here in Malaysia, maybe with the exception of BN lead by UMNO. why is Kelantan or east coast not developed as good as west coast???

It is UMNO who didnt help the Malays, Mahathir is the man, if any, should take the blame. Till today the oil royalities for kelantan is not handed.... why dont you and all the other so called spinners ask these question to DPM and PM.... kalau iklas nak bantu Malays.

Jelak la, baca blog you... you ingat you semua pandai sangat la tu.... i dont like RACIST.

Someone did moot the idea to Rais Yatim,during an NGO sponsored seminar, to charge those,including newspapers, that purposely use the term 'Malay Supremacy' under the Sedition Act, because the term is misleading and detrimental to society.

Without :

1) Freedom from Apartheid/Fascism
2) Freedom from Religious-Persecution/Religious-Supremacy.
3) Equality for all ethnicities and faiths in all aspects of policy, Law and Constitution.

;for the other races, Ketuanan Melayu becomes APARTHEID - Stupid.

yes Rocky, this country is named
MALAYSIA as pointed in APANAMA
-the base of the country's name is MALAYS
so
MALAYS-ia (malays - in action)

and this country is not named
as CHINASIA or INDIASIA

The chinese and indians are already given by Allah their own places.

Tanah Melayu is MALAYSia in english.

Indeed it is kepimpinan melayu.

Why don't history being properly taught in MALAYSia ??

i know for a fact, malay empowerment is not a proud concept for nik aziz. KETUANAN ISLAM would be better.
and for nazri bodoh, KETUANAN MALAYSIA should suit him.
just sad to see malays who actually not proud of being a malay but reaped the profits of being one.

'Perhaps the equal of ketuanan Melayu is Black Empowerment that greeted the end of apartheid in South Africa.'

'Ketuanan Melayu' can never be the same as Black empowerment. The anti-apartheid movement NEVER asked nor implemented a racial constitution. The Malaysian constitution today is the only constitution in the world which mentions a particular race and religion as its basis. What 'empowerment' is needed when the Malays control ALL the instruments of government and the banking system which is the linchpin of any economy. Welfare for the poor? Yes. 30% shares for someone who drives a BMW 740 is nothing but plain greed. Never ever equate your 'Ketuanan Melayu' rubbish with the noble anti-apartheid movement which embraced all groups as equals in South Africa. There are no 'special rights' of the blacks in South Africa. Mugabe the Idiot tried a 'Black Special Rights' rubbish in Zimbabwe on the advice of The Greatest Economist In The World Mahathir. Mahathir 'forgot' to tell Mugabe that Mahatirnomics worked because he he could suck money from Petronas and there is a large entrepreneurial population in Malaysia which paid most of the taxes. Mahathir's advice was so effective that Zimbabwe today is using The USD as its currency. 'Ketuanan Melayu' is nothing but a racist instrument used to perpetuate UMNO rule and that is all it will ever be.

AA!
It's me again!
At last! The proper meaning has surfaced - rightly so EMPOWERMENT is the singular most vital issue - and this applies across the board - all of us need to be empowered - within ourselves to have Faith - Imam as Yushaimi says, and with this empowerment/faith , we then go out of ourselves & take on the challenges & obstacles.
I am of the Blood group O -ve { universal Donor} and have always "notified" detractors{complainers} that I my blood is required for an emergency , I am duty bound to give , be the recipient black, brown,yellow, or with polka dots , be the recipient Muslim, Hindu, Christian, Buddhist, Taoist or whatever.
But I also believe, AA , that we have been evolving over the lat few years and as I daily scan/surf the net, I am sensing that the ferocity & cutting remarks are beginning to somewhat cautiously subside & taken over again somewhat cautiously, by a more "enlightened" perspective{there are of course the usual exceptions to the rule!}
And as Rashid says - which community has lost what since independence?!!!
As my departed mom used to say: BE THANKFUL FOR THE LITTLE GRACES OF LIFE!

Chiao & Godspeed.

The reason for the strong backlash against Perkasa is that the mainly Chinese groups are worried about a resurgent strong Malay force. Since March 2008, these groups have become uppity and like vultures, can sense the smell of defeat permeating UMNO/BN. So that's why all these issues and anti-NEP, anti-Bumi etc talk (which were damped down when UMNO was strong) have risen to the surface like scum on a pond after a downpour.

As for the Indian groups attacking Malay rights, let me tell you from experience that the Indians will get better chances under a Malay-led govt than a Chinese one. Go see how many Indians and Malays fare in Chinese-owned companies, apart from being drivers and general workers. Just look at the ads for jobs -- racist in its way by saying must be Mandarin-speaking because dealing with Chinese customers.

My Chinese mum can speak Malay, pasar version but still able to converse and fill in forms. The thing is, when the so-called non-Malay "brain drain" goes abroad, you don't hear them lamenting must learn the local language and that their children have to attend Christian prayers etc. I suppose, Mat Salleh country can lah, only in Malaysia cannot.

As for that Mr Magoo-lookalike adulterer trying to arm-twist the govt by outdoing the DAP, I dunno, I cannot trust a man who cheated on his own wife and family, the people who trust you the most.
I was incensed to read how more Chinese schools will be built with govt allocation in Chinese-majority places. Not enough ah? Alienate yourself from the majority at large and get rewarded!

UMNO leaders are deluding themselves by thinking if they pander to the non-Malay vote, they might scrape through the next GE. Who is feeding them this nonsense?

When I was young, I was told that the Malays were very good because they allowed the Chinese and Indian migrants citizenship. Who told me this? My OWN PARENTS who were born before WW2, themselves children on immigrants. My mum's family part from Bentong and she will spit on Chin Peng from what she tells of the Commies. She also partly grew up in Petaling St and told me what she knew first-hand of how May 13 started, about that infamous procession etc.

But one thing I must stress for the Malays is for the govt to PLEASE CONTINUE MATHS AND SCIENCE IN ENGLISH!! My Malay husband and his generation, their English is good, but younger ones, so sad, they can't get jobs because stymied by poor English. Very clever and articulate in Malay but tongue-tied in English and get dismissed by exployers are "bodoh."

English will get you jobs. How many times in my line of work, I have come across foreign employers or even non-Malay bosses who reject Malay applicants because of poor English skills at the interview. The non-Malays get hired because they are not shy of speaking bad English, it's communication that counts, not a quiet mouse.

The reason I want the Maths/Science in English to continue, is I've noticed Malay kids who studied these subjects have lost their fear of the language. Admittedly, rural kids have a problem, but when English is the medium for studying a subject and not a language in itself, the hoodoo is gone. My young Malay nephews and nieces are willing to "tembak" in English unlike the uni grads who "segan lah." My husband when he went to the States to study said initially it was so hard for him to learn the English terms.

Tun Mahathir, whom I admire immensely, knows this and much more. UMNO, please get off your high horse and listen to the wise old man.

It is interesting that there is a diversity of interpretations regarding "ketuanan Melayu". I have also written on the term "ketuanan Melayu" though I take a different stance than Rashid's empowerment or the good proffesor's primacy. ketuanan melayu goes beyond that in my opinion. it has a metaphysical angle to it which is very difficult to elucidate let alone to be understood by dense, prejudiced Non-Malays. And contrary to the mistaken perceptions of Islamic obscurantists like the Niks of this world. I will give a hint; "sopan santun", "budi bahasa" 'adab' bebudaya" are a few of the many pulses of Ketuanan Melayu. Only a illiterate bumpkin will carp they are inimical to Islam. Ketuanan Melayu is a palpably living tapestry woven with the silk of Islam and embroidered with the lace of refined culture.

Cosmopolitan Malacca of yore was the embodiment of Ketuanan Melayu. The Johor-Riau empire was suffused with the virtues of ketuanan Melayu and so were all those Malay kingdoms harking back hundreds of centuries ago. Scratch the surface of time, look beneath the bones of history and you will the pungent frangipani of ketuanan melayu permeating the air of deserted Istanas to that of the humble pondok

An ethereal yet elusive object of exquisite social beauty, KM defies racial pigeonholing because it is beyond all prejudiced, petty profiling that only maruahless dogs like the non-malays can comjecture.

And pray tell us, this proposed definition - how will that ensure fair treatment and equitable distribution of opportunities plus freedom of worship and construction of worship places by the other ethnic groups in Malaysia?

But its a bit too late lah, to dwell on this.

This nation is Malaysia, and the Bumiputeras are not just Malays.

It includes the Orang Aslis and the Dayaks, Muruts, Melanaus, Kadazans, Bajaus etc in East Malaysia.

These Bumis are not wholly Muslims.

The NEP mentioned affirmative action for Bumiputras and not Malays.

But so far, the NEP has been hijacked by the 'chosen ones' who sometimes are not even Melayu asli, but the celop types, who incidentally are greedy still.

Even the actual Malays have been left out from the NEP all tehse while in such matters.

And we have Utusan taking racial 'instigation' to international levels when its Senyum Kambing cartoon yesterday (23/9) made reference to Batak Christians of Indonesia who were demonstrating against Malaysia.

Is that also a 'must have' trait of the so called 'primacy' or 'leadership' or 'empowerment' that is being proposed? Disecting to ethinicity when it suits Utusan's agenda?

Why not Utusan say - half negro Christian President Obama is meeting Najib?

Sudah lah.

The whole world is moving towards equality for all, but here we have such outdated thinking and we all have to continue toleratings such nonsense.

-If Perkasa has drained the national converstation of structure and provoked competing interpretations, then it has been more successful than Nazri in quelling PR's campaign.

-Malays are numerically dominant and allowed immigrants in on the assumption that their soveriegnty will not in any way be diminished as a result of immigrants coming in. But we see that economically they are still deprived and a minority and this is a threat to peace and stability. Whatever word we use has to address the problem and be context relevant. Can the Malays be empowered when economically they are a minority? So, they have to use whatever sovereignty they have politically to address the problem. Perkasa is fighting for the reality of Malays to be Malays, not abstract words, although it might appear so.

-We have our histories and prejudices, and the more credible arguments and stories, be it online or mainstream, will win the day.

-MCA (and UMNO and MIC, etc), without any wholy thought, has sympathised with PR's manifesto and all the 'freedom' labels that lead PR's campaign to (unwittingly?) subject the Malay people.

-Who is MCA to dictate the format of our NEP, when the problem is ours?

-Agree with Rashid Yusof "Distancing from Perkasa...lends credence to racialist tendencies", "fact centric professionals " are dysfunctional, and "newpapers better equipped moderate", and that we need to "accentuate multiracial outlook of Umno" and key question is "how exactly have the communities lost?"

Only such a critical questions can focus the debate on performance, not Idris Jala's circus. We haven't learned from years under Dr Mahathir - performance without talk.

Old Fart said...

Empowerment? Supremacy? Rights? Privilege?

Why bother with words and then look for examples that would best fit its description?

After 53 years, and the several years of actions and motivations we should, rather than appropriating a term that sounds nice and hoping it generalises the aspirations of all those actions, be looking at the outcomes that have been achieved and that proponents are striving to sustain, and then look for the label that best fits.

Like I could for instance provide you this descriptive. An electric motor that turns a tub and that is all encapsulated in an aluminum casing, with a few control buttons with plumping for inlet water and outlet water. Ah, well..before you go cracking your head about what it is I am trying so hard to describe, I am trying to describe a bloody washing machine la.

You see, the descriptive derives not so much from the constituents of that product, but by the outcomes it achieves.


In Ketuanan Melayu, the intent is already laid down. Of course everyone you speak to gives it a colourful descriptive of, maybe, one aspect of what its aims are or might be. Speak to someone who feels victimised however, and he might give you a meaning that may not exactly find pleasure amongst its supporters.

This NST writer is probably playing around with semantics. So who cares if it were supremacy or empowerment or rights or whatever. The attributes and properties are still the same. The outcomes to date cannot be changed or reversed.

Should we, like the washing machine, not be looking at the outcomes to date to see what label best fits it? Because, I can assure you the outcomes have impacted, on those who the "ketuanan Melayu" intended to benefit, quite differently, depending on whether you are an UMNOPutra or you are just an ordinary Malay. The champions of Ketuanan Melayu are of course the UMNOPutras. And I plead with you guys not to assign to that cause any English labels until and unless it best describes the intended outcomes. Like the washing machine!!

The Ketuanan Concept is certainly a stupid concept as it cannot be defined.Perhaps it was somebody's fanciful idea that a particular race defined by the Constitution as the Malay race should be the "tuans" of the country!
As we all know a Mamak, a Chinese, an Indian , and an Arab etc. can be classified as a Malay if he fulfills the the requirements as stated in the Constitution.We are all Malaysians and the peoples who are marginalized are the Orang Aslis the real "tuans" of the country as they have been here since time immemorial.Ketuanan Raayat would be a more imaginative and meaningful concept!

Interesting issue today. Dr M also mention about it today,saying that the malays will lost their rights/power if the opposition comes into power.
He displeasure towards Abdullah Badawi is so intense that he even quoted saying that 'sometime we need a strong oppositon,to tell us that what we are doing is wrong or right"
That being said those who owe alot to Dr M for making them rich thought they will not give their one vote to Abdullah just to spike him and show of support to Dr M.
Dr M got his wish now,what is he bitching about?
AXN channel on Astro is screening a 5 second clips using Dr M quote with an image of a young lady quoting him on us having a strong opposition.
The funny part is the west has never any high regard/respect for Dr M and yet a spending a lot of money to air his famous quote to tell the Malaysian that we need a strong opposition.Guess our saudara Anwar and his western buddies are ahead in the media spin game for the next coming election.Got to thank Dr M for opening the pendora box!

On the malay rights or Perkasa issues I think the Umno media spin doctors can learn a thing or two from the Jews.The Jews have mastered the art of media spin untill to an extend that any remark regardless how small, is considered 'ANTI SEMETIC' and its politically unacceptable if you are label as one.

The malay activists must make similiar spin,that anybody who is against the malays demanding their rights is either 'ANTI MALAY' or PRO Classical Imperalist. Only then the malays can express their opinion without being label as racist.

I don't see much difference between the nomenclature supremacy and primacy. But why are we trying to be apologetic anyway?

The fact of the matter is we'd set ourselves a very high target which is not likely to be attainable anyway. And the non-Bumis know that, too.

We had the NEP for almost half-a-century and we're still status quo economically and become weaker politically. It's become a sin for us to defend the constitution while others are allowed to try to wreck the same.

How more submissive do we want ourselves to be? Or are we trying very hard to maintain that tag given us by the Mat Sallehs: the world's perfect gentlemen?

In the Malaysian context,it's definitely not similar to 'Black Empowerment' which the author tried to mislead and convey.The reality of 'Ketuanan Melayu'is derived from an inferiority complex due to the affirmative policy which is so good yet so demeaning.

this got to do with the title "Its Malay Empowerment, Stupid" reminds me of one incident at a village warong. Its not the title or the subject but the word STUPID. A man, lonely and poor, went to a village warong and shouted ' Kopi Satu! Roti Bakar dan Telor setengah Masak!" before the Chinaman could answer he shouted again, Cepatlah!. and put some cash on the table. A friend asked him, hei banyak duit hari ini. The man said and loudly, "apa ada pada duit?" then someone said "Anak dia balik semlama bagi duit sikit. Hari ini dia jerit lah sbb ada duit." the moral of the story is, Rocky's shouted the word STUPID after Najib made him the BOSS of Malay Mail..... ow dia senang ada kerja dia boleh jerit lah... Melayu masih tak sedar diri. Tak ada ke perkataan lebih lembut nak guna...bila ada kerja, gaji besar, panggil org semua STUPID!

Dr hassan ahmad: Utusan Malaysia.
‘kuasa Melayu’ tidak bererti kuasa untuk orang Melayu yang berkuasa melakukan apa sahaja
menurut nafsu mereka, memperjuangkan hak dan kepentingan Melayu dan memusnahkan hak dan kepentingan bukan Melayu.
Kuasa Melayu bererti kuasa untuk mentadbirkan negara dengan cekap, adil, bijaksana, bersih, bertanggungjawab untuk
kepentingan negara, bukan untuk kepentingan etnik atau kepentingan golongan dan orang-orang perseorangan yang
berkepentingan peribadi. Kuasa Melayu tidak bererti kuasa anti-bukan Melayu, atau hanya kuasa pro-Melayu,
tetapi kuasa untuk semua rakyat, kuasa untuk mewujudkan kemajuan, kesejahteraan, kemakmuran untuk semua rakyat.
Kalau ini maksud kuasa Melayu, tidak ada sebab mengapa rakyat mesti takut kepada kuasa ini. Yang kita takut ialah,
jika kuasa Melayu ini diberikan kepada atau jatuh ke tangan orang Melayu yang tidak layak menerimanya dan tidak
mampu menggunakannya dengan sebaik-baiknya untuk kepentingan negara.

Wow, u still around, ah? Thought you would have retired to contemplate your self-inflicted wounds and to ask for "inspirasi" how to remain relevant in this wide and wonderful world where "ketuanan" of any kind means sweet all!

As for Mas Selamat, he's been put back in the Whitley Road Detention Centre (hopefully with better security arrangements this time around).

If I were to subscribe to conspiracy theories, I would have thought that the timing of Mas's deportation to Singapore was entirely fortuitous, seeing as it came after the KTM land swop deal was done.

Of course, the only people who know what happened actually are the Msian SB and the Spore ISD - and they are not talking, no sirree.

Back to the question of "Malay Empowerment", how will these persuade the Googles, eBays, Facebooks, Microsofts, IBMs, Hewlett-Packards, Intels, Ciscos and Oracles of this world to cast a sympathetic eye on Malaysia?

Or where the country is going to find RM1.44 trillion for investments between 2011 and 2020?

I say - forget about "empowerment", if it is not backed up by transparency, good governance and meritocracy. Let's do "dual citizenship" instead to get global talent flows running in our favour.

Oh, I forgot - we don't need talent; we have plenty of the homegrown kind - freshminted with insularity and rudimentary English already built-in!

AFTER 200YRS OF LABOR BY THE CHINESE AND INDIANS IN BUILDING THIS COUNTRY TO WHAT IT IS, THE MALAYS ARE CONVENIENTLY CALLING THEM "PENDATANG" AND DENYING THEIR FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS.

THERE ARE OTHER COUNTRIES THAT HAVE BEEN THROUGH THIS PHENOMENA,...EG I)UGANDA,...IDI AMIN,THE PRESIDENT, DECIDED TO CHASE OUT ALL THE INDIANS WHO MONOPOLISED UGANDA'S ECONOMY.ALL THE INDIANS RAN TO THE UK....THAT'S WHY U SEE SO MANY INDIANS IN LONDON (AND NONE OF THEM ARE POOR!). BUT WHERE IS UGANDA NOW?
2)BURMA (MYANMAR) - USED TO BE ONE OF THE MOST PROGRESSIVE NATIONS IN ASIA UNTIL THEY DECIDED TO CHASE THE INDIAN "PENDATANG".AND NOW BINGO! BURMA IS THE POOREST IN ASIA!
3) ZIMBABWE( RHODESIA)- THIS IS HAPPENING HERE AND NOW! WHITE "PENDATANG"S FARMS ARE CONFICATED AND GIVEN TO THE BLACKS.NOW YOU CAN'T BUY A LOAF OF BREAD WITH A SACK OF ZIMBABWEAN CURRENCY. INTERESTINGLY, MUGABE IS A VERY GOOD FRIEND OF MAHATHIR!

THESE POLICIES OF DENIGRATING THE CHINESE AND THE INDIANS IN THIS COUNTRY IS AKIN TO "KILLING THE GOOSE THAT LAY THE GOLDEN EGGS".
WITHOUT THEM THISCOUNTRY WILL BE ANOTHER PAPUA NEW GUINEA .THAT'S MY OPINION AND I SINCERELY DO NOT MEAN ANYBODY ANY HARM.IF ANY OF YOU THINK OTHERWISE, THEN GOOD LUCK TO YOU.

Hey anon 4.32 & the likes,

fuck you pigbrain for blaming everything on the malays..wanna break some bones with us, hah? Maybe you need to learn from the chingkies..

Hey, if your forefathers never migrated to Tanah Melayu, we will never have the opportunity to discourse this issue.. illiterate, malnourished, no broadband..so where would you be?

Of coz not end up like Mittal or the like etc.. coz you're a pariah descendant, the high caste did not migrate coz they enjoy enslaving & worshiped like god by your pariah kind back home, of course lah! hehehe..
Instead, you'll be spending your life collecting cow dungs, serving the brahmins & ksatrias and nite time sleeping by the kaki lima longkang , train station, road divider with sky as the roof..

tapping rubbers for the white would be much more honorable than any of the top, at least you get your tamil schools here funded by you asslicked European estate masters..

KUALA LUMPUR: National Civics Bureau (BTN) deputy director Hamim Husin is no longer fit to hold his position and should be sent for counselling and retraining, MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek said.

He said Hamim did not understand the concept of democracy when he proclaimed Malay rights as a mandate to rule the country.

"He obviously does not know what democracy is all about. In a country that practises democracy, it is the rakyat who determines who rules the country," he said after the party presidential council meeting at Wisma MCA here Tuesday.

Meanwhile..."Govt agency veers from bumiputra agenda. UDA chairman: soaring land costs forcing it to become market-driven to ensure it's viability in long run"

UDA chairman Nur Jazlan Mohd: "This new economic reality forces UDA to depart from the usual practice of setting fixed quotas for bumiputra ownership in our projects...It's business model now will have a more optimal mix of purchasers with greater purchasing power to ensure future appreciation of the value of the properties..."

"Having non-bumiputra and foreign investors in the development (the proposed Pudu Jail redevelopment) would enhance it's value and allow UDA to subsidise the retail portion taken up by bumiputra entrepreneurs."

Apparently, Nur Jazlan has belatedly realized that while you can run from the market, you can't hide from it.

Empowerment, ketuanan or whatever comes up against cold, hard and stark economic realities!

But he is still talking about "subsidies". Looks like he hasn't fully understood the real world.

To the retards here, read this, from mysinchew.com.

http://www.mysinchew.com/node/35679

“Chinese people are highly reluctant to admit their errors, and can produce a myriad of reasons to cover their mistakes.

There’s an old adage: ‘Contemplate your faults behind closed doors’. Whose faults? The guy’s next door, of course!

“The Ugly Chinaman (醜陋的中國人)–delivered at the Iowa University in the U.S. a quarter of a century ago. – was published the following year in 1985 as a book together with his other essays and translated into English in 1992, Bo Yang asserted boldly, “Chinese people are the same everywhere.”

http://www.amazon.com/Ugly-Chinaman-Crisis-Chinese-Culture/dp/1863731164

The Ugly Chinaman and the Crisis of Chinese Culture [Paperback]
Po-Yang“Bo Yang (柏楊, born 1920) is a Mainlander-born writer based in Taiwan.One of his best known books is The Ugly Chinaman (醜陋的中國人).

During his imprisonment, Bo Yang wrote a number of works on Chinese history.

Po Yang writes—

Over the past 4000 years, China has produced only one great thinker: Confucius. In the 2500 years since his death, China’s literati have done little more than tack on footnotes to the theories propounded by Confucius and his disciples. Rarely have they contributed anything original to the body of Confucian thought, simply because the traditional culture did not allow it. The minds of the literati were stuck at the bottom of an intellectual stagnant pond, the soy paste vat of Chinese culture. As the contents of this vat grew more and more putrid, the resulting stench was absorbed by the Chinese people. Since the many problems in this opaque,bottomless vat could not be solved by individuals exercising their own reason and intelligence, the literati had to ape other people’s way of thinking, or be influenced by other schools of thought. A fresh peach placed in a vat full of putrescent soy paste will soon wither away and turn into a dry turd.”

-----

Told you all already long, long time ago....No wonder they are so bahalol! They can never understand anything that you tell them. They know only how to copy and 'potong jalan'. Go on and ape away laa, ....you gonna make my day, retards!

Btw, for those semantically-challenged, "Seolferwulf" means "Silver Wolf" - a term of honour amongst the Danes and Norsemen of Arthurian times. Very apt, I think!

I don't see you holding out the begging bowl for RM1.4 trillion of investments, unless you think that this amount is a figment of the government's imagination!

Oh, btw - care to comment on why Maybank has decided to locate regional private banking and wealth management operation in Singapore? Has Abdul Wahid Omar lost the plot? Or has he succumbed to the "new economic reality" syndrome?

- question foreign banks & companies recruiting the best based on merit
- advocate that all investment promotion missions overseas be stopped with immediate effect
- question the estimate of RM1.44 trillion needed in investments over the next 10 years or where these funds are coming from

Like I said, he is carefully selective about his targets.

If u are so "gutsy", tell the govt that it doesn't need the RM1.44 trillion in investments as that would make the country forever beholden to foreign investors.

Why yammer on about "ketuanan" and ethnic launderising when you are begging for foreign investments? Got no shame, eh?

Even Dr Mahathir, in spite of his diatribes against free markets and capitalism, didn't call for foreign investors to be thrown out!

Lee Kuan Yew went one better, of course. Which is why GIC has assets of US$200 billion+, Temasek has assets of S$270 billion and the market caps of Singtel and SIA are S$50 billion and S$19.5 billion respectively and why Singapore has AAA ratings from credit rating agencies.

That is true empowerment, based on solid economic facts. Not spurious feel-good tripe like that dished out by certain quarters in this blog and elsewhere.

You should get yourself on to Singtel's Singnet broadband service - sure got no problems, one! This particular connection is chirping away at 10Mbps (the stuff of dreams in the peninsula). And there's a 100Mbps upgrade waiting for me to sign on the dotted line!

In any case, all the points that you have tried to make are moot. As they say, when all is said and done, it's all in the numbers - who has done well and who screwed up bigtime.


You can waffle on about conspiracy theories and the threats posed by resurgent "mata sepets" and "Hindutulens", but that's all it amounts to - waffle. Which masks, I think, a deep and abiding inferiority complex born out of insecurity and a bone-chilling fear that the more unsavoury aspects of the "ketuanan syndrome" face an unhospitable environment in the region.

More on this in subsequent posts.

Meanwhile, rest easy. The sought-for RM1.44 trillion in investments is a piece of cake, a veritable walk in the park!

To the point, perhaps, that the Singapore government is donating the water treatment plant in Johor, gratis and in good working order, to the Johor state govt next year?

(Btw, what is the rate at which the Johor state govt buys treated water from Singapore and what is the domestic water tariff in Johor Bahru?)

And that, come 2061, the second water supply agreement between Singapore and Malaysia will lapse, with Singapore becoming 100 per cent self-sufficient in water?

That's pretty good empowerment, right - becoming self-sufficient in water? And being able to export water treatment expertise to China and the Middle East? The Arabs are picky customers, after all!

Ah, yes - the much-vaunted Andy Xie.

You didn't mention that he is currently an independent economist based in Shanghai, and that he was formerly the chief Asia-Pacific economist for Morgan Stanley.

Or that "he left abruptly in October 2006 when an internal email that he penned was leaked out. He derided Singapore as a money laundering centre for Indonesia, and the ASEAN group of nations as a failure." (from Wikipedia).

So, rather than stand up in public, take responsibility for his expressed opinions and justify them, he chose to abruptly quit his job with a Wall Street major!

How very convenient!

Of course, since October 2006, Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs and the other major Wall Street investment banks have substantially boosted their presence in Singapore. Not very indicative of a loss of confidence in the city-state, is it?

The sudden departure of Andy Xie from the investment bank Friday was precipitated by the leak of an internal email he wrote Sept. 18 containing disparaging comments about Singapore. The nine-paragraph note, with the subject line "Observations at the IMF/WB Conference (internal)," included an account of a private dinner hosted by Singapore's prime minister, Lee Hsien Loong, during the World Bank and International Monetary Fund annual meetings last month.
"I thought that the questioners were competing with each other to praise Singapore as the success story of globalization," he wrote, according to a copy of the email reviewed by The Wall Street Journal and confirmed by Morgan Stanley. In contrast, he cited "money laundering" as responsible for Singapore's success. "These western people didn't know what they were talking about," he wrote.

Speaking by telephone from Guangzhou, in southern China, Mr. Xie said the email was written at "the spur of the moment" and some of the language was "not appropriate" for public consumption.
"When I write something for the public eye, I choose the wording carefully," Mr. Xie said. But he added: "NOTHING, I WRITE, IN PRIVATE OR PUBLIC, WILL EVER CONTRADICT EACH OTHER ."...

Wow, twisting logic, are we?

The fact of the matter is that the Andy Xie email was never made public; it was never published in the mainstream media. Otherwise, the Singgie govt would have gone after Morgan Stanley and Mr Xie in court, as they did with The Asian Wall Street Journal, the International Herald Tribune and the now-defunct Far Eastern Economic Review.

As for Mr Xie, after that supposedly notorious email, he has not surfaced with any thought-provoking comments on the Singapore economy - comments that can be debated and rebutted. Why so coy, all of a sudden?

And don't tell me that a US-trained economist like Mr Xie couldn't land a job with another Wall Street investment bank in Hong Kong, Tokyo or Singapore after quitting Morgan Stanley?

As for the "Temasek Review" that you are fond of quoting, the Singapore "New Paper" recently did an unflattering expose on it (check out the report in the 9 Oct issue of the paper) which questioned the Review's credibility. Perhaps Pak Rocky is aware of this particular report?

Though what all this has to do with "Malay Empowerment" beats me. Perhaps it's the fundamental insecurity showing - nobody out there loves us!

After the independence of Persekutuan Tanah Melayu or Malaya, the Malays thought that appointed Malay leaders through UMNO would fight for their rights and enhance the economies.

However due the limitations of their thoughts processes it was never successful. It is too much to expect Tunku Abd Rahman to come out with a blueprint within a decade. Tunku had done his part in driving the English out. This itself is a mighty feat.

But the danger of chinese and indians supremacy could not be contained and this exploded in 1969 when DAP thought that with the British out of the way, they and other ex communists race, now let out from their Chinese new villages can gain control of Malaya. A state of emergency was declared again.

Mahathir was given the chance but he too had his limitations letting the Chinese monopolised the sugar trade for Kuok who now gather a staggering 40 billion assets equal to what the whole Malay owned PNB.

Under Mahahtir too he conspired to let Ananda Krishnan amast 40 billion, Vincent Tan 10 billion through organised and license gamblin, Lim Goh Tong 20 billion through licensed monopoly casino. All these are openly available through Forbes and these are just the top 10 richest men in Malaysia.
The Malays call Mahathir Tokeh Judi terbesar! The head of the biggest organised gambling in Malaysia as most countries made casinos and gamblin illegal.

The Chinese corruption of Malays leaders and head of department continuese with the illegal award of WIMAX frequencies against the Federal Constitution by Lim Keng Yaik and now the 4G by Rais Yatim himself and the SKMM.

Thus it is left to Malays NGOs like
PERKASA to uphold and fight for the Federal Constitution of the Federated Malay States to ensure the rightful rights of the Malays and Sultanates remain intact.

The action plan is
1. to curb Chinese monopoly in natural resources which are against the Federal Constituiton
2. to curb organised gambling leaders like MCA and Vincent Tan and Ananda Krsihnan from buying over Malay leaders with Yacht or Pavarotti concerts.
3. transfer the ownership of frequencies to National Cooperatives so that the maximum spread of wealth is achieved.
4. Ensure the policies to attain equal wealth distribution so that only 30% goes to Chinese and Indians interest.
5. Nationalise Astro,and Measat from Ananda which was given out unconstitutionally.
6. Form a Royal Commission to bring to justice Malay leaders who connived with the Chinese to defraud the Malays and act against the Federal Constitution.

To Indian Anonymous 4.32 just because Indian labourers and Chinese labourers work in tin mine dont qualify them for citizenship.

Kuwait, Saudi Arabia all have very high level of Indian and Chinese working as labourers.

All the beuatiful buildings are built by Indians and Myanmar etc.

Are they going to be given citizenship of Saudi Arabia? Not in a thousand years.

Uganda is poor because they dont have natural resources. Saudi is rich because they have oil.

Nothing to do with Indians. The poor Uganda now dont have to contend with greedy Indians.
