Malaysia,Between Anarchism And Dictatorships

The long history of our country has noted various remarkable times in surviving different political milieu of ideology practises. We had experienced both, the dictatorships of the theocratic element before the creation of the nation called Malaysia and the post independent era of mild anarchism in our country, the 1998, where the supporters of the former Deputy Prime Minister, Anwar Ibrahim, had resorted in making public rally and demonstration to object the sudden resignation which had being perceived by the public as the political assassination.

The tussles for power, as all of us know, are addictive. James Madison, the backbone behind the Constitution of the United States of America had left us with very useful minders on how we should understand the power, absolute power. He said that the problem, where men govern other men is two fold. First, you have to ensure that the government has the capacity to govern and is in control. Otherwise, anarchy will follow. Equally important is that the same government obliges itself to some control and limits. If not, it will be a dictatorship.

There is no clear, visible parameter on how we can create and protect the core fabric of our society entities and cultural purities (the ethnicity, religions, races, etc) in creating the much needed reform of our country unless we can be brave in facing the reality of the ever changing structure of the society, mould in the principles and disciplines understand by all entities representing both, the majority and the minority of our nation, which lays on the purity of the powers that leads and follows.

The success in setting good precedents of implementing the separations of power between the government organs, within the legislature, the judiciary and the executive, are seen as a vital element in creating a balance society, thus projecting an ideal political landscape which combine all the important necessities of the much needed nation building process, which have being marginalised by our own ignorance toward its essentiality in ensuring the survival of our own social sphere qualities.

Continuous and progressive participation through various democratic approaches and mediums means by the civil society must be encouraged in stimulating the sense of consciousness towards the responsibilities in creating the “check and balance” forces to protect the actual interest affecting the majority masses in the most democratic manner, full of virtues and morality, in line with our nation Constitution regardless of our affiliations and beliefs.

The constant reliabilities factors in enforcing the sets of laws and acts amended by the authorities must be seen, and proved to be biased towards the social justice, must be uphold and not hold, by the chains of any undemocratic, oppressive manners in revolutionising the culture of our nation in a way full of virtues. It must be made in order for the current progress of our national agenda not to be stopped, and being stagnated due to the inability of the minority authorities in addressing the actual needs of society.

We must bear in our mind that, the reality gap prevailed between the anarchism and dictatorship is insignificant yet dangerous and harmful for our national social fabric, thus the needs for our consciousness towards the understanding for the ultimate extent of democratic practise must be projected in the most suitable manner of achieving the contradicts, to complement the needs of Malaysia.
