Politics, among others, is about forming ideals and persuading others to agree with those ideals. In democracy, politics, ideally, is about representing the masses who share such ideals. It is about gaining power through the trust given by the masses and using that very same power to achieve the very ideals which form the basis of the support given by the masses.
It is about serving the State in a way he or she thinks is right. In a way which the voters believe to be right. It is at the point where the beliefs, dreams, aspirations and wishes of the voters meet with the beliefs, dreams, aspirations and wishes of the politician that the premise for the support for that politician is built.
Upon the procurement of that support, the politician must pursue such beliefs, dreams, aspirations and wishes on behalf of the State and her people to the best of his or her ability. Because those beliefs, dreams, aspirations and wishes have become the politician's trust.
All the powers which come with the position of the politician are to be used only for the purpose of achieving those things. And not for any other purpose.
That to my mind is the function of a politician who seeks to be in power and who is possessed with the power.
However, sadly, in our country, most politicians seek power - in various means - because of vanity, greed, ego and the primordial need to lord over the masses. Most of those who walk along the corridors of power are merely interested in the pursuit of self preservation and the idolisation of their "leaders" as if those "leaders" are some God-sent creatures worthy of adulation and worshipping.
The beliefs, dreams, aspirations and wishes of the masses are not important. In fact, they are never mentioned nor thought about. Politics, to these creatures, is about them and themselves. And themselves. And nothing more.
These people ought to be tied up and thrown into the sea, with a very heavy bulk of steel attached to their feet.
Just look at this report. There was nary a mention about serving the people. Or hatching a plan to make the State a better place. About dreams. About aspirations. All they talked about is about money. About this and that persona. About me scratching your back and you licking my balls. The people? The State? Well, who the hell are they?
Now if PKR is just about this and is full of people like this sad and moronic flesh and bones, may I suggest that PKR either clean its act NOW or it can choose to dissolve the party.
It just proves that morons are everywhere.
I am disgusted!
