After the shameful let down of BN’s “Janji di Tepati” for a Merdeka slogan, now we have “One Nation,One Country, One Soul” by Pakatan Rakyat. I have only this to say:
While I do appreciate their intentions to unite all of us…
Why must everything and everybody be “ONE”? Why can’t we celebrate diversity and all our differences but be united in love and fight for justice, and against corruption? These ‘Satu’ theme has made me sick. I don’t want to be one with everyone. I want to be myself, but with my oneness to live and love and work together with the other for what is good and right. Many paths, one God, remember?
Every time you say “Lets be One”, I feel alone. Your oneness will undermine my uniqueness. I want my individuality to be recognised, our diversity celebrated; our differences accepted and respected, not just tolerated. When the day comes, I will celebrate Merdeka.
