Let me introduce myself, as I am going to give you an exciting information about how is life lately in Indonesia. Indonesia, a big country, biggest archipelago with huge amount of natural resources, is apparently lack of people with adequate knowledge and understanding. It seems like God was trying to be fair, that after all the land and ocean full of treasure, He has to make the people “not really bright”, or else, Indonesia will be a place where arrogants lived.
Even when they are not really bright, Indonesians are already snob; they are very proud of their races and religions, just to cover the fact that they don’t really use their brains. Not all of those people, but sadly, most of them. This is not an insult, but a retrospective study of the reason why this kind of thing is happening. I, myself, is half Indonesian and half alien. So, I believe, I have the right to speak up of what really happens in my country.
Indonesia, recently, has lost its tender-loving sense, and it is now being such country of aggressive, religion-based culture. Seemingly, it was spread through the year 2004-2013, while one of political party tried to coup Indonesian citizen with what so called “purified Islam”. Along with its “covered-in-Islamic-appearance”, and with such mixture of soft and hard approach, those members of political party came with doctrins of how Islam should be applied in daily life. Of course, it is based on their assumption and hidden agenda.
This kind of situation is apparently created for political aim, where in doctrinated community, all the perspective can be controlled to achieve one’s political goals. We have been experienced such terrible situation, when all the doctrinated and controlled moslem were mobilized to discriminate Basuki Tjahaja Purnama within political year of 2017. Without understanding the context of Basuki’s speech, some moslem in quite big community, marched through main road of Sudirman and gathered in National Monument (MONAS), to show off force.
That is the main point, “show off force”. We must have known that Indonesia is the country with majority of moslem; but somehow, such majority situation does not give them the satisfaction, or yet the ability to produce anything important. There is no global achievement in Science, Math, Astronomy, like those valuable moslems done before. No such person like Averos, or Avicenna; they are just becoming legends, with no future apprentice.
Now with only majority in numbers, they tried to overrule the country and made such claim as Islamic country. We know there is no pure Islamic-shariah country which stands on their own feet and makes changes for the world to be a better place. Even worse, those countries rumored to have their hands dirty in many global wars amongst people within country, or between countries. Islamic State of Iraqi and Syria, or I.S.I.S is even made by some moslem country along with America.
Why did they do that? Let me tell you, it’s all about the money. Weapon sellers would love to see the world in never ending conflicts, so they can keep selling their guns, and bombs, and go on and on. On the other hands, the coalition of moslem countries and America may have their own benefits, such as having the land of deserted to be claimed. Those deserted lands are full of oil resource, the black gold, commodity which every country in the world is longing for. Those who own the oil resource, will own the world.
This major thing is actually missed from everyone’s mind, specifically those who abruptly refused to use their right to think, and chose only to “hear and obey”. They acted like a buffalo with a ring on their nose; always be obedient, eventhough they knew it is not right. People shall be able to use their mind and think, as it is the function that distinguish us from animal.
When it comes to discriminate non moslems, other races, these people will act like an animal, literally. They will bark as loud, attack like a blind boar, and yes, without even stop to think for a second. They never, and will never, know that they have been used in political agenda, or even worse, their ulama’s agenda. The only thing in their mind is, “as long as I follow, I’ll be going to heaven”, which is not. Heaven is only benefited for those who follow God’s rules, and one of it, the first and foremost is to use your thought.
The dark ages in Indonesia is worsening when it is not only religious group acted weird and abnormal;members of race are now pretend to be “The Man”, as in when someone try to do something with their race, that person may get the consequences. What is that? It is like we live in a primitive era; the era where big baboon may live with groups of female and fuc*ed them altogether. Once this kind of people acting out, I really saw them like primates who have no ability for discussion and further thinking. All they know is banging their chest like gorilla.
I feel ashamed and pity of my dear country, and even more to the President who has to deal with this situation. The problem of humanity and intelectual we faced today in Indonesia is the accumulation of abandonment of previous leaders of the country. Maybe not all of them contributed in this case, but having the country being ruled with no serious vision and passion, it seems to be our mad history. Dictatorship, along with inability to spread the fair and just development for the country, and moreover the permissive habit for corruption and injustice, those are the things which make Indonesia in its state today.
What can be done?
We shall be able to open wide our eyes, and shout out loud about those imbecile people. They ought to be out of the way for a moment, perhaps by giving them a lot of tasks to do, such as learning as high as possible. By learning, they will understand that the world outside is full of opportunities to grow. They shall be able to compete within intelectual base, not with power of muscle. We need to remember that we are civilized human beings.
This situation of lack of knowledge, information and ability to process the information shall be corrected immediately. There is no time left for us in this racing against the time. All the deals with the world to open as much opportunity for the world to come to Indonesia had been signed, not by our curent President, but previous. I am not blaming him, for at certain point we should be able to open ourselves with challenges from the world.
By challenging ourselves, we are not stopping to grow and getting better performance. We shall be able to reach our highest dream, and pursue another higher dream. Thus, at the end, we have no regrets of what we have not done in this life. Regreting, either to regret our mistakes and undone things, or to blame other people for anything we are failed to do, is such a waste of our intelligence, therefore we denounce God ability to create human.
May we live our life with passion. Never blame on what happens to us after all the efforts we made, as it is written in our individual book of destiny.
