RPK: It’s all in the gamePosted: July 7, 2008
This has got to be the best of his writings that I have read. I have been slightly swayed of late, I have to admit, by what seems like strong supporters of either sides of the political mess, that I was slightly uncertain as to whether I had to make a clear stand of whether I’m anti-BN or pro-BN for me to make comments.
I’ve said it before, I believe in the fight, I believe in the cause. Not the person or party who is doing it.
I’m not anti-BN. I’m just anti-corruption.
I’m not pro-PR. I’m just pro-Bangsa Malaysia.
I’m not pro-RPK either. I’m just pro-freedom of expression.
Glad I made that clear, to both my readers and myself.
An excerpt from RPK’s post:
It is dangerous to support someone for personality cult reasons. You only support his or her cause or stand. And if his or her cause dovetails with yours, well and fine. If not, then you must be matured and civilised enough to disagree, while continuing to respect his or her cause or stand, in spite of it being opposite to yours. In that same spirit, you may not like that person, but if his or her cause is the same as yours, you must be able to see eye-to-eye only as far as the cause or stand is concerned, while you can agree to disagree on all other issues which you feel are contrary to yours.
