Want or not?

Malaysia is celebrating 50 years of independence this 31st August. People make the slip of saying that it's 50 years of Malaysia's independence (Malaysia was only formed in 1963, or 6 years after the Federation of Malaya's independence from British colonial rule). Much of this has to do, of course, with the historical amnesia that systematically afflicts the populace via the education system.

But this time round, as Malaysia lies months away from the next major General Elections, some people will not let these slippages occur without a fight. You've already read about the ballsy RPK. Now check out Nak Tak - a blog dedicated to making Malaysians think seriously about voting, and to think twice before they vote.
