1. Intellectual discourse is part of the freedom of speech. Malaysian universities allow academicians to embark on free academic discourse inside and outside the classroom. Aristotle denounced that human beings are by nature political animals. Humans are made partisan too. They grouped themselves on purpose i.e to protect their groups and to attack the other challenging groups. This is all about politics.
2. When a university lecturer is attacked by netizens for delivering his objective views in a forum discussing on the topic whether the Pakatan Harapan Chairman is too old to be the next Prime Minister of Malaysia, the principle of freedom of speech is abused. Quo Vadis, Malaysians?
3. Malaysian voters which comprise supporters of both parties and on-the-fence voters must learn to respect freedom of speech.
4. To the contrary, age shouldn’t be a deciding factor to select who should be the next Prime Minister. Physical fitness, mental sharpness and the ability to be firm and impervious are psychological attributes required from the top political officer.
5. He must feel the pulse of the masses. Issues close to the heart of rakyat like the accelerated cost of living, fuel cost and subsidy have to be addressed with immediate effect.
6. The shipwrecks that caused leakage have to be fixed instantly.
All the Best, Sir!
