Malaysia – A Matrix world?
Posted by pervster on September 16, 2008
Now, anyone know knows me personally knows I’m a big fan of the Matrix. I have memorized most of the lines from the first Matrix. I watch the movie at least once a quarter. As for the other two sequels, I watch them at least once in two quarters..
Anyway, moving away from my Matrix addiction, I couldn’t help but realize how Malaysian politics is very much like the Matrix. It’s almost as if…Malaysia is a simulated reality created by machines in order to dupe the human mind…. If Malaysia was really indeed a more…primitive version of the Matrix…here’s the major players:
Neo: Anwar Ibrahim (The Chosen one)
Morpheus: RPK (The one who guides Neo)
Trinity: Wan Azizah (Neo’s romantic interest)
Agent Smith: IGP Musa (The idiot in charge of getting Neo)
Cypher: Ezzam (The idiot who betrays Neo and everyone else)
The Architect: Mahathir (yes, I still believe he’s the mastermind behind all this)
The Agents: Police Diraja Malaysia (need I say more?)
The Sentinels: ISA (Special machines to bring down the people)
Nebuchadnezzar: Pakatan Rakyat (the ship that brings them to victory)
The Oracle: Yet to find someone who plays this role…kinda hard actually….
RPK truly believes in Anwar. And quoting what he said…
“Yes, I too have placed, not only my money, but also my freedom on Anwar. And if Anwar fails to deliver his promise on 16 September 2008, not only he but I as well am headed for a fall. But I have confidence he will do it. And I have confidence that my stay in Kamunting will not be for two years but for a mere two weeks.”
In retrospect….this is what Morpheus said when Neo was shot dead in the first Matrix
“This cannot be…..”
And in the Third and final matrix:
Morpheus: “He fights for us” (when the sentinels stopped fighting the humans)
A friend asked me today whether there will be any roadblocks in Penang. I told her…I don’t know. But..if I’m to be stuck in some massive jam somewhere in the next few days thanks to some stupid roadblock..and someone asks me what’s going on…I’d probably say….
“It’s Anwar…He fights for us.
Fellow Malaysians…I know this has probably been said before, but there’s no harm repeating it. There is going to be a change, and it’s going to be soon. But please, do not fall into any “Matrix” trap. As Haris Ibrahim had stated in his blog:
I would like to call upon all Malaysians to do these:
1. Remain calm
2. Do not do anything rash
3. Do not take to the street
4. Do not be instigated by people to demonstrate
5. Just voice it out in your blog, your comments to the blogs, and inform your friends and relatives about the situation
6. Call your Aduns or MPs and voice out your objection about these arrests and urge your representatives to voice out
7. Members of political parties, sms your leaders to pressure them to voice out
We shall object to these draconian acts by using civility and do not fall into the traps of giving the big brother a chance to declare emergency rule
