And I Shall Pray

I am sitting here feeling numbed to the bone.

I know justice is subjective. But when it concerns universal rights, justice should be, and in fact, is objective. It is in that event objective because it concerns rights which are universal. Yes. Universal to all people, regardless of breed or creed. Regardless of religion or faith. Of upbringing or education. That is why they are called universal rights.

The premise of universal rights lie with the acceptance that all human beings are born the same and are entitled to several inalienable rights. These rights are inalienable because they are essential to all human beings. Take any of them away and we would become lesser human. Take my freedom and I would be as good as dead. "Give me liberty, or give me death", says a wise man. What is life without liberty, if I may ask. What is life if you take away my freedom? What is there to live for if I have no right to express what I believe, to practice my faith, to associate myself with those whom I find aggreeable? For what is life without life itself?

Thus it is cowardice - nay, extreme cowardice - and blatant betrayal ,when the State of which I am but a part takes away my inalienable rights without adhering to the due process of the law. Rights which are central and essential to my being. Rights which define me, and others, as human beings. Rights which dignify me and others as human beings. Rights which distinguish me and others as human beings and not some creatures which we are free to cage so that their beauty could be admired by us at their expense. So that their fury could be encaved for our perceived safety and pleasure. So that we could control and mechanise them to our liking and whims.

Outside the moon is shining bright. What beauty. What glory. But sight without touch is an incomplete pleasure, almost an unfinished painting. As much as life without liberty is us living without being alive.

And I could only pray. For God is also universal. And He is my Lord. And their Lord. And everything happens because He wills it.

The Shire hasn't yet been scoured. Sharkey's Men still run the police force and have infiltrated the judiciary. Evil Itself is incarnate in human form and stalks the corridors of power - the same Evil that animated hollow shells that went by other names in other times and places.

This Evil is simply defined as "the will to wield power over others."

Divine Authority and Power decrees that Authentic Power is also known as Self-Mastery; and the only bona fide Power is power over oneself and one's own destiny.

IF RPK & ANWAR END UP IN JAIL & NAJIB RAZAK IN THE PM'S OFFICE... DON'T BLAME IT ON GOD! IT WILL NOT BE THE WILL OF HEAVEN. RATHER, IT WOULD BE THE WILL OF DEGENERATE MEN IN POSITIONS OF GREAT WEALTH WHO HAVE SUCCUMBED TO THE EVIL TEMPTATION TO WIELD POWER OVER OTHERS. KISS THE RINGS ON THEIR HANDS... AND YOU WILL BE CONTAMINATED!

Do Not Keep Silent, O God !
Do Not Hold Your Peace,
And Do Not Be Still, O God !

For Behold,Your Enemies Make a Tumult;
And Those Who Hate You Have Lifted Up Their Head.
They Have Taken Crafty Counsel Against Your People,
And Consulted Together Against Your Sheltered Ones.

They Have Said, " Come Let Us Cut
Them Off From Being A FREE Nation,
That The Name Of FREEDOM May Be Remembered NO MORE."

They Form a Confederacy Against YOU: Who said, "Let Us Take For Ourselves The Pastures of God for A Possession."

O My God, Make Them Like The Whirling Dust,
Like the Chaff Before The Wind !
As The Fire Burns The Woods,
And As The Flame Sets The Mountains On Fire,

So Pursue Them with your Tempest,
And Frighten Them with Your Storm.
Fill Their Faces With Shame,
That They May Seek Your Name, O Lord.

Let Them Be Confounded & Dismayed Forever; Yes, Let Them Be Put To Shame and Perish,
That They May Know That YOU, Whose Name Alone Is The LORD, Are The Most High Over All The Earth.

evility is incarnated as IRRELEVANT and he professes to love God.

They can have RPK's body but not his spirit. Its up to us not to be IRRELEVANT to carry on his fight in high spirits.

Let IRRELEVANT answers GOD.

I think comments are already in abundance. What's lacking is physical presence, the visual confirmation that the support is indeed the actual reflection of the sentiment that seem to be shared among many. But the reflection remains a deceptive one if it is not seen assuming a physical shape where it matters.

People, come to the court.

And now we shall all pray that Snap polls for Perak will be held as soon as possible to end the political & constitutional crisis faced by the oppressed Rakyat Perak. Upholding the Supremacy of the Constitutional Law of the land is what we Rakyat wants to uphold our Basic Rights and to restore Democracy !
