Don't Build a Wall Between Us
As far as Ruhanie Ahmad the "Kuda Kepang" is concerned, government mouthpieces, including Zainuddin Maidin, need to be taught a lesson. Literally. About the multimedia in Malaysia. Hopefully, Zam and others who have been demonising bloggers, will understand something about what they've been attacking. Perhaps, then, they would not be too unrestrained in their attacks against bloggers.
" Di Malaysia sendiri terdapat ramai pakar undang-undang ICT. Kita juga mempunyai MCMC. Kalaulah, umpamanya, perisian iklan multimedia mempunyai etikanya yang tertentu,
mustahilkah kalau bloggers Malaysia di ajak berunding untuk sama-sama membentuk kod
etika blogging di negara ini suatu hari nanti?
Pra-syaratnya, jangan ada sesiapa jua di dalam pemerintahan negara ketika ini bercakap
pasal bloggers secara rambang dan hentam keromo.
Jangan dimulakan proses konfrontasi antara kerajaan dan bloggers. Jangan
dibina tembok pemisah sebelum pihak pemerintah mengenali hakikat
sebenarnya mengenai blogging."
You can read more of what Ron has to say here.
Rocky in his Bru talks about Ron and Zam, both ex-journalists.
" Ron was a Member of Parliament between between 2000 and 2004 while Zam was made a Senator by Dr M before he rose to become the Information Minister. In other matters, the two differ. And on the question of blogging, they are at loggerheads."
Read Rocky's "Ron On Zam" here.
My take on this?
I don't think people instructed to attack bloggers are that stupid.
They don't care what you and I think. They know what you and I think.
The message to us is simple-- stop blogging.
The message to the public, including the voting masses is -- DO NOT TRUST BLOGGERS. THEY ARE LIARS.
This is going back to basics -- basic propaganda.
