WE ARE WE
by TV Smith
31/08/03

We rightly condemn corruption but we willingly grease the hands held out. We're the world's Under-Table champion.

We despise cronyism but we worship Konektion and Jalan.

We clamour for congestion-free roads but we buy a new car at the slightest excuse. Using public transport is at odds with our patriotic duty of supporting National Car projects.

We envisage ourselves as the champion of the Third World, yet we look down and mistreat workers, students or visitors from poorer third world countries.

We practice colour discrimination openly. Fairer skinned Muslims of the Middle East and Bosnia are embraced with open arms, while their darker brothers from the Indian Sub-Continent and African countries are generally unwelcome by everyone from LRT passengers to cab drivers.

We promote and encourage fairer complexions through skin whitening products but become offended when a Malaysian stewardess or hotel receptionist grovel in front of a generic White Man.

We protested war, shouted slogans and burned effigies in front of the US Embassy. We proceeded for lunch at the nearby American fast-food restaurants.

We cleverly advertise around the world that we're Truly Asia, a melting pot of cultural and ethnic diversities. We stood silently by as bigoted heads of schools and universities smashed our beloved pot to pieces, in their personal crusade to widen the Racial Divide.

We were upset when Morgan Freeman played God. We were not when over-zealous council officers demolished temples and places of worship.

We are not the least worried about incest becoming the national pastime but get upset when couples hold hands in public places.

We want freedom of speech. But we want it with anonymity. We abuse the Internet with malicious attacks, rumour mongering and every known unethical practices.
from TV Smith's Dua Sen at http://www.tvsmith.net.my/duasen/
We lament about increasing incidence of crime but turn off our senses when the neighbour's alarm goes off or a when mugging takes place right in front us.
from TV Smith's Dua Sen at http://www.tvsmith.net.my/duasen/
We condemn the drug addict who stole our 2 ringgit slippers but it's OK when we steal other people's intellectual properties.
from TV Smith's Dua Sen at http://www.tvsmith.net.my/duasen/
We turned Petaling Street into a haven for fake goods and pretend it's the cultural environment that the tourists are after.
from TV Smith's Dua Sen at http://www.tvsmith.net.my/duasen/
We fume when government offices close on certain Saturdays but nobody in the private sector wants to work a six day week anymore.
from TV Smith's Dua Sen at http://www.tvsmith.net.my/duasen/
We complain about non-effective elected representatives but time after time we vote the same Mr Invisible into Parliament.
from TV Smith's Dua Sen at http://www.tvsmith.net.my/duasen/
We are the ultimate balls carriers. In keeping with this status, we turned every well-intentioned government concept or campaign into an unintentional joke. We overdo everything and anything from Vision 2020, Malaysia Boleh, record-breaking, flag flying to human reproduction.
