Freedom is simple-yet profound

Democracy is alive here in this “your voice” forum, great! Normally, I would not comment about issue relating to politic…but the urge is just intense to pen a line or two, so as to entertain and celebrate my perception of freedom.
The assertion of freedom to assemble is simple yet profound and many at time confusing or rather contradicting especially to ordinary Malaysian. Where most of the time, an individual's freedoms of action will often have an unintentional effect of limiting another person's choices. Simply means you're not free when someone else's actions are directly limiting your own action choices.
As such, the debate over the right to organize the rally is a freedom of choice to any legal entity, (referring to the constitution). However the choice will be contradictory if framed as one person's freedom versus another's. Such as, it is your freedom aka right to play “mah jong” until the wee hours in your own house, provided that your neighbors are not deny of their freedom aka right to sleep soundly.
Again, modern freedom fighters have a few biases in their opinion, and it can kind of be summed up in a nationalistic, chauvinistic, politics, fanatics, racist and collectivist way. Hopefully, it’s all about the greater good – hopefully again, so we shouldn't necessarily be free to impose our perceive freedom on others. This freedom of expression that influences modern liberalism and pluralism in the west, but so many on the left side of the spectrum will take these ideas even further. Like the “mah jong” session that turns rowdy even in the privacy of your home, you're still imposing a forced action on your neighbors to retaliate because of deliberate disturbance. However, this logic carried out to its conclusion reduces the individual to a cog in a multi-racial society – and your perceive freedom loses priority to tranquility, peace and harmony.
Notably, democracy is all about entertaining the majority and pacifying the minority and not the other way round.

Disable Parking Bay - Abuse by Parking-son Idiot

Abuse of handicap parking space  is common and almost everywhere. I really wonder the level of understanding of this facility by Malaysian or some are just 'idiot,extreme form of Kiasu syndrome and maybe they themselves are mentally disable. One's may observe most of the time those driving big posh car park there with no handicap sticker, blatantly with no sense of consideration to the disables. An able bodied driver should always have a thought about those who are less able. Thus, when a normal driver parks in a handicap zone and deprives someone else who more needy from parking there, it demonstrates a driver infected with Parking-son - Idiot disease.

Big Car.....own by a pea size cow-dung brain...kiasu.

However, not many of us are aware the "right kind of sticker for car driven by OKU". Most of us are not sure whether there is a law with regards to this abuses. What kind of punishment of summon impose, nobody seem to care, maybe chain them to the wheel chair for a week or so or  they should get them injected with some form of epidural  which makes them lame from the waist down for a couple days and let them be wheel chair bound for that time...i am sure that will give them a new perspective on stealing disabled parking bay...!!!

Something needs to be done with disabled parking.I suggest that a new bill should be table in the parliment. Part of it to define the fine, but also the information of OKU such as those dealing with names and pictures being place on the dashboard or side mirror. Add that to having to renew them every five years, and we might have something to work with from there for those idiot who love to abuse the parking bay.
