“Bersih, Cekap, Amanah” – old political slogan

“Cemerlang, Gemilang, Terbilang” – new political slogan

“B.e.r.s.i.h” – slogan to get from the new slogan to the old.

I quote the first few paragraphs of the 1776 American Declaration of Independence:

“… When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. …

The Outer Space Travel 2007 太空漫遊2007

上週看到《中國時報》的〈18分 有那麼好笑嗎?〉一文,思緒良多。其實在臺灣,輿論暴力又何止18分的暴力?我是來臺升學數年的馬來西亞僑生,對臺灣教育現狀有些愚見,我知道自己無權批評,我但求爲不會考試、不想被逼著上研究所的臺灣朋友講幾句話。
