Y.B. Mangunwijaya
“Indonesia ini memang negeri yang unik, penuh dengan hal-hal yang seram serius, tetapi penuh dagelan dan badutan juga. Mengerikan tapi lucu, dilarang justru dicari dan amat laku, dianjurkan, disuruh tetapi malah diboikot, kalah tetapi justru menjadi amat populer dan menjadi pahlawan khalayak ramai, berjaya tetapi keok celaka, fanatik anti PKI tetapi berbuat persis PKI, terpeleset tetapi dicemburui, aman tertib tetapi kacau balau, ngawur tetapi justru disenangi, sungguh misterius tetapi gamblang bagi semua orang. Membuat orang yang sudah banyak makan garam seperti saya ini geleng-geleng kepala tetapi sekaligus kalbu hati cekikikan. Entahlah, saya tidak tahu. Gelap memprihatinkan tetapi mengandung harapan fajar menyingsing......(menyanyi) itulah Indonesia. Menulis kolooom selesai.
["Fenomena PRD dll,"].”
Y.B. Mangunwijaya, Politik Hati Nurani

Goenawan Mohamad
“sebab mencintai tanah air, nak, adalah merasa jadi bagian dari sebuah negeri, merasa terpaut dengan sebuah komunitas, merasa bahwa diri, identitas, nasib, terajut rapat, dengan sesuatu yang disebut Indonesia, atau Jepang, atau Amerika. Mencintai sebuah tanah air adalah merasakan, mungkin menyadari, bahwa tak ada negeri lain, tak ada bangsa lain, selain dari yang satu itu, yang bisa sebegitu rupa menggerakkan hati untuk hidup, bekerja dan terutama untuk mati..”
Goenawan Mohamad, Catatan Pinggir 4

Christopher Hitchens
“1. Bangladesh.... In 1971 ... Kissinger overrode all advice in order to support the Pakistani generals in both their civilian massacre policy in East Bengal and their armed attack on India from West Pakistan.... This led to a moral and political catastrophe the effects of which are still sorely felt. Kissinger’s undisclosed reason for the ‘tilt’ was the supposed but never materialised ‘brokerage’ offered by the dictator Yahya Khan in the course of secret diplomacy between Nixon and China.... Of the new state of Bangladesh, Kissinger remarked coldly that it was ‘a basket case’ before turning his unsolicited expertise elsewhere.

2. Chile.... Kissinger had direct personal knowledge of the CIA’s plan to kidnap and murder General René Schneider, the head of the Chilean Armed Forces ... who refused to countenance military intervention in politics. In his hatred for the Allende Government, Kissinger even outdid Richard Helms ... who warned him that a coup in such a stable democracy would be hard to procure. The murder of Schneider nonetheless went ahead, at Kissinger’s urging and with American financing, just between Allende’s election and his confirmation.... This was one of the relatively few times that Mr Kissinger (his success in getting people to call him ‘Doctor’ is greater than that of most PhDs) involved himself in the assassination of a single named individual rather than the slaughter of anonymous thousands. His jocular remark on this occasion—‘I don’t see why we have to let a country go Marxist just because its people are irresponsible’—suggests he may have been having the best of times....

3. Cyprus.... Kissinger approved of the preparations by Greek Cypriot fascists for the murder of President Makarios, and sanctioned the coup which tried to extend the rule of the Athens junta (a favoured client of his) to the island. When despite great waste of life this coup failed in its objective, which was also Kissinger’s, of enforced partition, Kissinger promiscuously switched sides to support an even bloodier intervention by Turkey. Thomas Boyatt ... went to Kissinger in advance of the anti-Makarios putsch and warned him that it could lead to a civil war. ‘Spare me the civics lecture,’ replied Kissinger, who as you can readily see had an aphorism for all occasions.

4. Kurdistan. Having endorsed the covert policy of supporting a Kurdish revolt in northern Iraq between 1974 and 1975, with ‘deniable’ assistance also provided by Israel and the Shah of Iran, Kissinger made it plain to his subordinates that the Kurds were not to be allowed to win, but were to be employed for their nuisance value alone. They were not to be told that this was the case, but soon found out when the Shah and Saddam Hussein composed their differences, and American aid to Kurdistan was cut off. Hardened CIA hands went to Kissinger ... for an aid programme for the many thousands of Kurdish refugees who were thus abruptly created.... The apercu of the day was: ‘foreign policy should not he confused with missionary work.’ Saddam Hussein heartily concurred.

5. East Timor. The day after Kissinger left Djakarta in 1975, the Armed Forces of Indonesia employed American weapons to invade and subjugate the independent former Portuguese colony of East Timor. Isaacson gives a figure of 100,000 deaths resulting from the occupation, or one-seventh of the population, and there are good judges who put this estimate on the low side. Kissinger was furious when news of his own collusion was leaked, because as well as breaking international law the Indonesians were also violating an agreement with the United States.... Monroe Leigh ... pointed out this awkward latter fact. Kissinger snapped: ‘The Israelis when they go into Lebanon—when was the last time we protested that?’ A good question, even if it did not and does not lie especially well in his mouth.

It goes on and on and on until one cannot eat enough to vomit enough.”
Christopher Hitchens

Pramoedya Ananta Toer
“Saya masih berpendapat bahwa Multatuli besar jasanya kepada bangsa Indonesia, karena dialah yang menyadarkan bangsa Indonesia bahwa mereka dijajah. Sebelumnya, di bawah pengaruh Jawanisme, kebanyakan orang Indonesia bahkan tidak merasa bahwa mereka dijajah.”

“Anak-anak muda jaman sekarang itu lucu dan agak susah dimengerti. Mereka cukup bersemangat membuat berbagai macam proposal untuk kegiatan organisasi yang mereka ikuti. Tapi proposal hidup yang berisi visi dan strateginya meraih mimpi, justru lupa mereka buat sendiri.”
Lenang Manggala, Founder Gerakan Menulis Buku Indonesia

Goenawan Mohamad
“Pemilihan umum memang perlu dilihat sebagai upacara merayakan tekad tapi juga kerendahan hati: "sebuah Indonesia yang lebih baik" selamanya akan jadi sebuah janji--tapi yang selamanya layak jadi ikhtiar.”

“Senja melarutkanku di batas waktu
Ketika ada dan tiada sejenak menyatu
Ada yang beringsut menjauh
Ada yang perlahan merengkuh

Bayanganku mengais sisa terang
Sebelum terkubur malam panjang”
Sam Haidy, Nocturnal Journal

Wan Mohd Nor Wan Daud
“Saya sempat bertanya kepada Pak Amien (Rais). Setelah berperanan menurunkan tiga presiden dan memimpin MPR dalam era terawal reformasi, apa yang telah beliau pelajari? Jawapannya seperti biasa, ikhlas dan tidak menunjukkan keraguan. Katanya, jiwa kita telah menjadi sangat korup. Jawapan ini tidak mengejutkan saya walaupun memilukan dan tidak terbatas kepada negara Indonesia saja.”
Wan Mohd Nor Wan Daud, Rihlah Ilmiah: dari Neomodernisme ke Islamisasi Ilmu Kontemporer

Sam Haidy
“Ada yang perlahan binasa setiap kali puisi tercipta.
Ia selalu meminta nyawa dari kenangan atau impianmu.
Ia tak segan merampas tidurmu dan meretas bangunmu.
Kelak, ia akan terus bersuara dari dalam kuburmu....”
Sam Haidy, Malaikat Cacat

Tammy Pemper
“But daylight brought with it a wonder. None of us had expected to see it again. And as the darkness lost its intensity, the new beginning carried with it sounds of subdued Timorese chatter. I hadn’t realised I’d started counting survival in hours.”
Tammy Pemper, Scorched Earth: Peacekeeping in Timor during a campaign of death and destruction

“Our motto is 'unity in diversity' but what we have had for a long time, and increasingly so, is fragmentation ... ethically and spiritually.”
Julia Suryakusuma, Julia's Jihad

“The bone dagger that is being held in the photograph was made from the leg of Governor Rockefeller's son who was killed and eaten in Indonesia. There are fortunes to be made in Indonesia buying crocodile skins but the climate is hot and humid and not at all desirable.”
