“I want peace. I don’t want any trouble.”

I got this quote from SAPP’s blog (http://www.sapphq.blogspot.com) and I think the Chinese and the 0ld people need to see how apt it is.

“Courage. Courage comes. Courage comes from cultivating. Courage comes from cultivating the habit. Courage comes from cultivating the habit of refusing. Courage comes from cultivating the habit of refusing to let fear dictate one’s actions.”

Aung San Suu Kyi, Burmese Nobel Peace Prize winner.

Above was quoted in the following posting at Malaysia Today

“I want peace. I don’t want any trouble.”

That’s the reaction from most of the older people starting from age 50 and above (Not all, but most). Don’t get me wrong. I do not have any discrimination against older people but I am very frustrated with the attitude of most of them.

Ask them what do they think of the street protest of oil hike, they will immediately reply “Trouble. Avoid at all costs. These people are causing trouble. They have no brain. Economy will fall. Sigh”

Because of not wanting any trouble, they sacrifice true democracy. Because of not wanting any trouble, they rather let corruption, injustice and open abuse to carry on. Because of not wanting any trouble, they rather be slaves to dirty scumbags. Because of not wanting any trouble, they rather let the country be in ruins just so that they can live on comfortably.

Most of the older people are cowards, especially Chinese (This is just my opinion). I am saying this as a Chinese and my mum and her friends are exactly like that. They are more than likely to stick to the same, be slaves to BN and will be very reluctant to change. As long as their lives are not under threat, they won’t want to do something. Only when something happen to them or their families, they will cry out for fair justice. What is the use by then? You let yourself be in ruins and only to realize later and want to do something when it is too late?

This is exactly the plan of our very own “dictator”. To install fear into every people so that they will obey the lords.

Obviously the younger generations are very different and they are disgruntled. They disagree with the old thinking. This is why the tsunami came. We no longer accept the kind of rubbish that’s been around for too long (Sad to say that some SPDC goons still don’t get it. They are still living in the 70’s). We are no longer living in an era whereby information moves slowly. We are more knowledgeable because of internet. We quickly learned about “Sa fron Revolution”. We quickly learned about the loopholes in our country and we want improvement. Can you imagine if there’s no internet, no BBC, CNN, no CNBC and all the things you read in the newspapers are just mere lies, what would have happen?

What the older people don’t understand is, I want a balance. No, I don’t want any trouble either. I want free and fair Governance that will look upon me . Ignoring people’s cry and ruling arrogantly is the last thing I ever want. If we keep fearing, we will never get what we want.

Sorry, I edited and changed the basic background as Burma.
