It is time to accept the fact that some things are real. Things like prostitution, gangsterism, robery, and drug abuse, are real. One cannot assume everybody will follow orders, steps and bow to the system. Deviants and deviation are the elements of life. Can you imagine a life without deviants? The closest i can get is heaven.
The question is not how to turn this world into heaven. The question is how to make life better. One of the way is to make law which is a means of control as a harm reduction apparatus.
The system we have today are training us to be nothing else but consumer. We consume and some of us want more. Are we denying that one may go overboard to make his way to the top faster so he can fulfill his consumption? The question is not how to stop him from doing that but how to reduce the harm he may inflict on others.
I take for example drug. Which would be our priority? Is it punishing the convicts so that others would scared and make him as an example? Or are we focusing on how to stop those drugs from reaching our home? During desperate times the failure of a convict can be a good example to improvise maneuver around the law. Now are we calling that justice when the learned punishment only serve the betterment of the crime? Have we ever realize about the implication from the system? We must not forget human is a thinking being. If I say the law is training criminals to do better in their crime would that make sense when you try to relate to high crime rate we encounter lately?
I want to say it is time to think about the system we use but then it would sound like we never thought about it. Let us admit that we constantly think because we were designed to think. But most of the time our thought serves as the reaffirmation of the thinking we've been forced to accept.
This culture of wanting more begin with a question we've been trained to answer. We asked "What in it for me?" on every material we can lay our eyes on. Nowadays we rarely heard a law passed for the sake of the greater good with no hidden agenda. For me, if we reduce the harm of a crime towards society we actually helping our next generation to live in a better world. That is good enough for me.
So instead of punishing we organize them into a manageable scale. Let us not hope that the realization of this dream will be made possible by politician. They are hijackers. They take advantage of issues that will benefit their political mileage. Stop giving away our fight to the politician, roll up your sleeves, its time to to your responsibility.

Young grads sell bodies for easy money
By Wong Pek Mei, A.Raman and Allison Lai
Selling bodies has become a common trade in today’s society. The moral value of new generation has been decreasing ever since the cost of living increase although efforts of instilling values through education has been put up by many parties such as the government, parents and society itself.
This issue has signified nothing but failures of the various parties and the individual as well to fulfill their responsibilities of roles. The root of the problem is caused by high cost of living, fast forward moving world and easy currency. It has becoming more and more materialize to achieve the power of money as today’s society have shown that money is everything by idolizing branded things, corrupted leaders with pocket full of money and excessive advertisements of today’s needs. Apart from that, the development of the internet has further exacerbated the condition by being an advantageous medium in selling their bodies.
The expansion of the internet has been the measure of today’s advanced world. It is beneficial to the society in terms of providing vast knowledge to us as well as source of income to some of the society. Some of them feed their self interest in gaining lucrative income through social networking such as selling obscene photos of themselves and offering massage services. This trend is bad for the societal development as it would grow into uncivilized society because of the immorality and unethical portrayed by some of the money hungry people. Apart from that, the new generation would be lack of responsibility in fulfilling their obligations as responsible individual but rather be an individualistic and self-absorbed person. This would lead to more corrupted people running the country and oppression to people’s right when their rights of having better life are being taken away from them.
Intellectual has been demeaned to lower level since money has become the chief target of these young grads and this shows that the education system is not doing at its best to provide morale education to the students. However, education can mean informal and forma education. In terms of informal education, the responsibility lies on the parents and individuals whereas for formal education, the burden of teaching lies on the government efforts to provide the most effective education system to its people. Apart from that, government policies regarding the internet or technology could also affect the young grads. As an illustration, lenient action against those who commit deviant in cyber world has led to this byproduct.
Parents are also responsible in playing a pivotal role in instilling moral values in the children. According to Freud, the most crucial age for children to develop their habits is at the age of one to six, indicating that this is the period where they would absorb most of their habit
berada dalam kumpulan orang yang ramai.
dalam surau atau masjid.
menunggu habis tapi berisi.
lalu didengar seluruhnya.
ada yang lawak
buat renungan orang lain.
anda tak selesa,
ingin lekas keluar,
tapi terlalu jelas,
anda takut malu,
tapi bukan perbuatan itu,
bukan takut melakukan,
tapi takut dimalukan.
seperti berada dibawah mikroskop,
di bawah mata-mata besar,
diteliti mana cela dan hodohnya,
anda melihat warga ceramah,
mereka jelas memahami lawaknya,
tapi anda murung,
ada awan hitam berkepul,
bersama ruang gelap dan kecil,
seperti ada belenggu besar,
mahu jatuh atas kepala.
kemudian dia beralih tajuk,
anda lega sebentar,
anda berfikir dalam,
kemudian ia masuk ke bawah sedar,
dan menusuk pangkal hati
anda merasa seperti dirasuk,
satu perkara aneh.
aneh kerana mimpi-mimpi,
hanya terasa himpitan keras,
what is it about the student power? what power do they have?
you see money is power, but money alone is powerless unless there is an owner of that money. he can buy things or materialized it. similarly voice, alone voice is just air vibration captured by ears unless it have a proper origin. he who have voice can somehow earn the power to be heard.
but student power. sadly no one ever use it or materialize it in a kind that it would turn into an agent that can benefits others or can be trade to exchange something. but really nothing. student power is a power of nothingness.
if i am a money i am powerless.
but if i were a student and i want power, the best power is to forgive.
because if you forgive you are actually save the time to accuse someone of being wrong. you will go straight to the point and smack their faces with an acusation they can never dispute.
“I am more important than William Shakespeare,”
Mansor Puteh is a man who exudes confidence.
“I am more important than William Shakespeare,” he said, over tea in an exclusive interview with Malay Mail this week.
“Shakespeare has never used a Malay name in any of his works. I always use Malay names.”
Right. Well, maybe he means that his work is more relevant to Malays because his characters are mostly Malays.
“And Steven Spielberg, I am better than him, because in all his movies, there was only one film which showed Muslims — Amistad — and they were all naked!”
Selamat menggantikan kalendar, semoga ada yang berhasil dikecapi tahun ini.
