The belief that politics can be scientific must inevitably produce tyrannies. Politics cannot be a science, because in politics theory and practice cannot be separated, and the sciences depend upon their separation. Empirical politics must be kept in bounds by democratic institutions, which leave it up to the subjects of the experiment to say whether it shall be tried, and to stop it if they dislike it because in politics, there is a distinction which unknown to science, between truth and justice. People are getting smarter nowadays; they are letting lawyers instead of their conscience be their guide. The guide of the modern world is One with law is a majority.
I am not trying to dig out someone graves or to say something bad about people who have deceased. Deep in my heart and mind thinking phrases by local leaders no matter from the opposition or government. Statement made about Tiger of Jelutung. A man with principle, firm, honour both law and constitutions. I didn’t see it that way. I say that the man must be certain of his morality for the simple reason that he has to suffer for it.
In 1997, “The Tiger” brought out the immoral act by The Deputy Prime Minister which was then DS Anuar Bin Ibrahim in Parliament and shocking the whole nation which I myself at first couldn’t believe what has been exposed. After Anuar being fired from the cabinet in 1998 and being charged with sodomy, “The Tiger” himself act as an attorney to DS Anuar. What has really happened? A person who is a well-known respected law practitioner making a huge obvious U-turn from exposing to defending. Is this the man of principles? He knew it very well that he (Tiger) was under oath in Parliament. Is it and act of lying? Or it just a wild baseless accusations against DS Anuar. Is this a man who really honoured the law and constitution? Men with principle’s always stick to one. If A it is and so be it. History is a voice forever, sounding across the centuries the laws of right and wrong. Opinions alter, manner change, creeds rise and fall, but the moral law is written on the tablets of eternity. Anyhow, “The Tiger” himself has made a tremendous exposure on DS Anuar personal behaviour. He saves this country from being ruled with immoral. Thank god he did that right at the first time. Politician will always be a politician. They are like an acrobat, keeping his balance by saying the opposite of what he does. The terrible immoralities are the cunning ones hiding behind masks of morality, such as exploiting people while pretending to help them.
I dig out statement made by “The Tiger” in Parliament from the official website of Malaysia Parliament. It all started on 22nd. October 1997. Here is the official statement from the parliament of Malaysia.
On 18th. December 1997, “Tiger” has pushed further and this time sound tougher.
This is the fact. Read yourself on every line. Make your own judgement and this is mine. The three hardest tasks in the world are neither physical feats nor intellectual achievements, but moral acts. To return love for hate, to include the excluded and to say ‘I was wrong’. The essence of morality is a questioning about morality and the decisive move of human life to use ceaselessly all light to look for the origin of the opposition between good and evil.
