Extortion in Democracy

We are, the people are the rightful owners of our nation.

We must rise to take ownership.

Do not allow a few corrupted leaders to manipulate their ways!

Extortion means forcing someone into giving you something through threats. A bully who tells kids he'll beat them up if they don't give him their lunch money is guilty of extortion.

Extortion in our Democracy comes in all forms.

It can comes in 3Cs:
Con you,
Confuse you,
Condemn you.

Please do not fear the bullies. Their days are numbered. We can hasten it by unitedly do the work of nation building. Contribute in whatever ways like gather people gearing up for Bersih 4.0, give infor from online media to Malay friends .

Threats can come in different forms too.

At time subtlely.

At The People's Tribunal on the 13th General Elections, I heard how the Orang Asli were threatened to have their social benefit withdrawn 
If they vote the opposition . Things like no free medications, no free transportation of school going children.

Together we stand, together we can! 

Have a great day ahead.

See Obama talk about it!
