Overwhelming Sandiwara

Things were much clearer when I was in the UK. Malaysian problems and issues seemed a lot more clear cut from a distance. Now, living in the heart of it, things are an entirely different matter. Local problems and issues are so very blur. One seems to lead into another seamlessly without any differentiation between them. I find it extremely hard to keep up with everything.

So, the solution is to stop trying – at least for the time being. It is far more important to step back and listen.

This is one of the reasons why I have been rather quiet with my rants for quite a while now. In some ways, I am better positioned to understand things but in other ways, I am more constrained by my knowledge of the matters. Sometimes, I feel that there is just too much stuff ingrained in the very core of our beings that the only way to fix our problems is to actually reboot our entire nation and start over from scratch. Unfortunately, that is just wishful thinking and impractical.
