If you have the time (a lot of time), do drop by KEnny Sia’s blog and read through all the comments of his recent post about an accident he witnessed and tried to help. He took some pictures and crazy people from all backgrounds started flaming him and imposing their moral believes.
Whether taking the pictures of the accident is right or wrong is not the point of his entry. The points are him documenting the event and his feelings, and the awareness it generates.
This is the real Malaysian in full glory.
Pandai criticise others and deviating from the real/actual/original point of the matter at hand. What has dicussing about the ethics of taking photos has to do with the article?!
In a way, the same case goes for our parliament too… I guess.
Just look at how they debate over matters in YouTube or Google Video, regardless if they are BN or opposition.
The MPs really do represent the public. They represent our immaturity.
A good example would be the current sexist bocor incident. Another would be the Nazri shouting “you racist… x100000”. One more is the ‘you-tak-suka-Malaysia-you-balik-China’ incident. And of course, there are plenty more.
Sometimes (actually, it happens more often than sometimes), I’m guilty of this bad habit/attitude too. And now that I’ve seen it in action, I try not to be like this anymore.
And I hope those reading this article learn two thing from reading that particular article:
– Safe driving and seat belts (especially me).
– Don’t deviate from the point of the matter, and attack the person.
