Been thinking for a while

I had a conversation with a friend of mine after the CEIC 2005 tutorial class in Tuesday. We brought up the matter of economic crisis (though we are students of chemical engineering school. It seems that he have learned a lot from his economic class that he took as GenEd last semester. He talked about how the people are being fooled about economic recession; the rich become richer while the poor have to suffer, about having Ferrari and another Ferrari during economic recession and lot more. According to my friend B, it is not a real economic recession we are experiencing. He justified the absurdity of economic recession by claiming due to economic recession, increment of fuel prices which eventually lead to food prices hiked up ‘without boundary’ (oh…  exaggeration..) is unavoidable. Yet, when the fuel price drop to below normal level, the food prices are still sky scrapping with no sign, even arbitrarily, going to descend and land on where it suppose to. When I ask him “So, are you blaming the system?” he replied “*hesitate* …No, I blame the ‘people above’

Today, I read the online newspaper (Utusan online) and I came across a headline which draw my attention to read it fully (as I usually skim through the headlines without reading the full news report). To my dismay, it is a report which should not occur to a country such as Malaysia. Blaming the stockist, the dealer, will the problem be solved? No doubt an action is going to be taken, yet, is it the cure? As every disease need to be diagnosed and treatment should be given accordingly so that the ailment is cured, the same applies to the problem that we faced. False diagnostic will results in prescribing the wrong medicine for the ailment. In this case, I would not say the diagnostic is false but not thorough. Simple diagnostic will be followed by the prescription that work as pain reliever, where the ailment will yet remain.

Those who understand, really, what is going on to them, to the society, to the world, will know what they have to do to curb, to solve the problem. And believe me; the solution to this kind of problem is not attainable shortly. It requires life after lives, generation after generations to actually cure the problem. What are we able to do then? Curb it from getting worse meanwhile working hard towards the cure.

And people, it begins with us.
