Mitos Peribumi Malas

4.24  ·  Rating details ·  238 ratings  ·  26 reviews
Citra tentang kemalasan golongan peribumi yang digembar-gemburkan oleh para penjajah tidak berasas, malah ternyata tanggapan tersebut dimanfaatkan untuk kepentingan ideologi mereka.

Dalam hal ini, para penulis kolonial melemparkan tuduhan atau hujah ideologi mereka berdasarkan faktor iklim dan lingkungan tropika yang dianggap sebagai punca utama kemalasan golongan peribumi

I spent close six years in primary school growing up under a Malay teacher who kept emphasising to us how Malays are inherently born with the tendency to be indolent, lazy and generally unproductive. Along the way, she introduced us to texts such as “The Malay Dilemma” by the former Prime Minister of Malaysia, detailing how inbreeding amongst the Malay community have given birth to a civilisation that is genetically inferior, inherently stupid and should not be expected to be on par with their p ...more

"He works so hard, so steadily and so long, that when he does stop, his one desire is to rest, and he asked no more than to be allowed to do nothing. It is this complete relaxation of his that leads European visitors so ludicrously astray in their superficial judgement of the lazy native."
-Page 121, The study of national character.

Hasty generalisation yang dibuat oleh sejarawan yang membentuk bukan sahaja imej peribumi, malah kaum buruh yang lain.

Barangkali, mudah untuk dituduh kaum peri

If you live in Thailand, one thing you'll hear from both white people and locals is that Thai people are "lazy." If you ask for a clarification, they'll provide some anecdote about some guy they saw once. You will leave the conversation with a dimmer view of other people's perceptions.

Turns out a Malaysian scholar named Syed Alatas (who I found out about because he got name-checked by Edward Said) got these same bad vibes decades ago, and then wrote a remarkably well-written, thought

An anti-colonial short-course for Malaysians in one volume. The Myth of the Lazy Native was an influential book in post-colonial studies, published a year before Edward Said's Orientalism [1] . Syed Hussein Alatas trawls through centuries of original sources to find the sources of the persistent idea that Malays, and other native peoples, are lazy. Some of the key points that struck me were:

1. At the time of first contact with Europeans, the peoples of the

Buku the Myth of the lazy native atau terjemahannya Mitos Peribumi Malas adalah sebuah buku kajian sosiologi karangan syed hussein al attas. Ia diterbitkan pada tahun 1977.

Terdapat beberapa sis yang aku boleh gunakan utk menceritakan buku ini iaitu sosiologi, sejarah dan juga akademi (ini adlaah pengkategorian secara arbitrari). Di setiap sisi tersebut, buku ini berjaya dgn cemerlang

Pada takah sosiologi, buku ini berjaya dgn memaparkan dengan cemerlangnya fenomena colonia

In between another read I picked up this book. While it it is not the easiest of read, I found it very compelling. There were many pauses to reflect and at times to reread a rendering . A lengthy introduction and an even more lengthy conclusion epitomise the care taken by the author in getting across his much scholastic approach to an important phenomenon arising from an epoch in the history of the Malay Archipelago. In retrospect, I thought I should have started this note from the start of the ...more

Teruja melihat tajuk karya monumental Syed Hussein Alatas ini membuatkan saya menyahut cabaran rakan-rakan untuk membedah karya setebal hampir 300 muka surat ini. Perasaan yang bermain dalam fikiran saya sebelum membaca buku ini ialah rasa lemah bergelar seorang Melayu di bumi bersejarah yang sentiasa mekar dengan semangat perkauman.

Namun, membaca dan meneliti serta menanggapi karya agung tulisan sarjana terkemuka seperti Syed Hussein Alatas membuatkan seolah-olah saya terpujuk dan buku ini membuatka

Saya kira dalan pendahuluannya, Alattas mengemukakan satu aspek kesarjanaan yang amat penting. Kesarjanaan katanya tidak dapat lari dari pengaruh ideologi. Ideologi secara ringkas adalah satu sistem fikir untuk mengabsahkan aturan sesuatu benda (iaitu bagaimana seharusnya sistem-sistem masyarakat seperti pendidikan, sosial, ekonomi, dan politik diatur). Tetapi dia membezakan antara pengaruh positif dan negatif sesuatu ideologi. Penulisan dan bahan kesarjanaan zaman kolonial merupakan bukti kepad ...more

Sebuah lagi karya penuh berani oleh Syed Hussein Alatas. Idea utama yang dibawa oleh penulis ialah pembebasan cara fikir (mindset) orang Asia daripada cara fikir dan sistem yang ditanam oleh penjajah. Dengan kata yang lebih tepat, ia adalah sebuah dekolonialisasi melalui minda masyarakat. Perlu diketahui, dekolonialisasi berlaku pada kebanyakan negara dan mencakupi perbahasan yang luas.

Jadi, pada awal buku ini, penulis membawa pembaca menyoroti latar kehidupan masyarakat Melayu, Jawa

Kisah-kisah peribumi malas, yang dicatatkan oleh penjajah dalam buku-buku mereka bagi tujuan memberitahu bahawa pentingnya penjajahan ke atas Tanah Melayu dilakukan, dan bagaimana dengan penjajahan tersebut, penjajah berjaya membawa masuk kemajuan ke atas Tanah Melayu. Hal ini tidak benar kerana orang Melayu ketika itu telah pun menjadi petani dan pedagang, bahkan Bahasa Melayu telah pun menjadi lingua franca ketika itu.

Sesiapa pun sukar untuk bekerja keras, apabila setelah berpenat

The author added Jose Rizal's statement on the accusation of Malay indolence.

"The very Europeans who accuse the peoples of the colonies of indolence (and I am no longer referring to the Spaniards but also to the Germans and Englishmen), how do they live in the tropical countries? Surrounded by many servants, never walking but riding, needing servants not only to remove their shoes but event to fan them! And nevertheless they live and eat better, work for themselves and to enrich them

Tulisan terbaik daripada seorang sarjana tempatan. Buku ini bermula dengan memetik pandangan sarjana, pengembara, pegawai, agamawan dari Barat yang melihat 'rupa bentuk dan fikiran' bangsa di kepulauan Nusantara sejak bermula era kolonialisme di rantau ini. Pengarang memfokuskan kepada bangsa Melayu, Jawa dan Filipina. Kajian ini menjurus pembentukan pandangan terhadap bumiputera tersebut yang dikatakan malas daripada sudut kacamata dan Barat dan penulis melawan hujahan tersebut menggunakan dapa ...more

People knew more about Dr. Mahathir Mohamad's The Malay Dilemma than Prof Syed Hussein Alatas's The Myth of the Lazy Native. Perhaps, if the late professor was a more successful politician (he founded Gerakan), than this book might have been better known. But it is Mahathir's party who won the elections. It is also Mahathir's conception of the Bumiputeras that won the ideological imagination of Malaysians. In the end, the image of the Malays as being lazy, dependent, inferior and stupid persists ...more

Buku ini menerangkan kajian ilmiah oleh Syed Hussein Alatas yang menafikan pendapat Mahathir dalam 'Dilema Melayu' tentang sifat bangsa peribumi terutamanya Melayu dikatakan malas, berbanding bangsa-bangsa lain. Mahathir menyatakan bahawa sifat malas merupakan salah satu sifat dalam genetik Melayu yang diwarisi daripada nenek moyang, padahal sifat malas itu hanyalah berlaku dalam golongan elit Melayu. Syed Hussein memberikan hujah yang ringkas, apakah yang dimaksudkan malas jika seorang petani melayu y ...more

“It is the thesis of this book that the image of the indolent native was the product of colonial domination generally in the 19th century when the domination of the colonies reached a high peak and when colonial capitalist exploitation required extensive control of the area. The image of the native had a function in the exploitation complex of colonial times. This was the time when the capitalist conception of labour gained supremacy. Any type of labour which did not conform to this conception w ...more

Syed Hussein al-Atas telah membahaskan mitos ini dengan panjang lebar. Mitos Peribumi Malas, yang meliputi orang Melayu, Jawa dan peribumi Filipina ditohmah dengan pelbagai sikap dan sifat negatif oleh kuasa kolonial (British, Belanda, dan Sepanyol).

Penulis juga tidak ketinggalan mengkritik buku Revolusi Mental dan The Malay Dilemma yang menurutnya telah terperangkap dalam propaganda yang disebarkan penjajah.

Penjajah telah meletakkan panggilan pemalas dan bermacam label lagi kerana

Kedatangan penjajah mengkaji dan memerhati tindak tanduk peribumi yang disebutkan membawa kepada satu kesimpulan yang sama, walaupun dari negara yang berbeza; Malaysia, Indonesia dan Filipina. Peribumi itu pemalas! Dan saya mengambil kesimpulan sendiri bahawa 'Peribumi Malas' seperti yang dikatakan oleh penjajah itu, menjadi serangan psikologi terhadap orang-orang Malaysia, Filipina dan Indonesia. Dan saya sejujurnya suka suka 'pembidasan' oleh Syed Hussein Alatas di dalam buku ini. Walaupun tid ...more

Really comprehensive discussion on how the idea of the natives' indolence was created by the colonialists. With compelling arguments and evidence written in a straightforward manner, Alatas' work is one that should be read by anyone interested in getting a perspective on colonialism that is different from biased perspectives of the colonialists themselves.
