Very direct yet engaging thought on politics, explains the need of people as the main root of political thoughts. Reminds me of Havard's Lessig who fights for almost similar goals.

"The people are the nation. The nation is its people. Its people as a whole must thrive, and be cared for."
For me, this is the heart behind the book.

For someone who is really rather too lazy to think about the political arena and too annoyed to get into debates about it, this was a good read. It relates in easy, understandable language about what politics is, the situation in Malaysia at this point of time, and what we as individuals can do about it.

I would suggest reading

“Tolerance is most decidedly not the equal of respect. It pales in comparison. In inter-personal relationships, tolerance as the basis of attitude and conduct is insulting, belittling and offensive. It smacks of condescension.” 1 likes
“Blind patriotism on the part of its leaders and citizens, far from leading a nation to greatness, will only bring ruin, disgrace and misery to the nation and its people. Self-delusion isn’t complementary to greatness. A nation will be great only if it has the courage to face up to its own shortcomings, and not be blind to its own wrongdoings, failings, mistakes, imperfections and impurities.” 1 likes
