Consumerist: Where Are We Heading As A Nation?

Corruption destroys political legitimacy?

We, as a country, have a serious problem with national morale.

Everywhere you look, you can sense ”something is wrong”.

No doubt, over the last three decades we have produced bright and charismatic leaders. We have advance in terms of construction of the state of the art buildings, roads, bridges, cities, but also those that collapses though multi million in costs!

Many in Malaysia have risen to international stature and are significant global players.

Some notorious too bringing shame to the nation and its founding fathers!

In fact, Malaysia has gained a notorious reputation of late, which is saddening and scandalous!

Corruption is unstoppable and the latest, in the string of exposures, this time in Australia, is truly embarrassing for a country, which proudly never stops throwing its religious credentials at each and every turn?

But our Malaysian house and family is faltering.

There is a lot of gloom and doom when you attentively listen to the voice of the people on the ground from all backgrounds, races, creeds and classes. These people who see the glass half empty are correct.

There is a lack of confidence at each and every tier!

No one believes the official versions anymore!

They have a right to be listened to.

Our beautiful land seems poisoned with rivalry, competition, selfishness, greed, racism, intolerance, fanaticism, abuse and a lack of accountability and good governance!

Malaysian consumers do not trust any politician, nor, the statements they give!

Suspicion and a lack of trust have seeped deep into the soul of this nation. Nobody is spared: priests, politicians, sports stars, artists, corporate executives, the civil servants, and, of course, top government officials and managers?

At the risk of generalizing, no one trusts what is happening here.

And as a Malaysian who loves his country, I am truly hurting inside!
