Chicken pox

Chicken pox is caused by the varicella zoster virus. Funny how these doctors come up with such evil sounding names for viruses. A person with chicken pox is sieged by the evil Varicella Zoster forces for days. He has high fever, red blister looking spots all over his body, pain, itch, weakness, in short- utter chaos among the peace loving cells in his body and dis-ease in his very well being.

Then the doctor prescribes the anti viral, Valtrex (they also have funny heroic names for antibiotics) and a good samaritan may prescribe a mangosteen skin fruit juice to help fight the virus. These good forces of the Valtrex and the Mangosteen Skinheads go into fierce battle with the evil Varicella Zoster forces to liberate the body from the latter's evil rule in order to restore the body to good health.

Likewise in the fight for independence against an evil regime, we need good people to fight.

An evil regime is one where the forces of corruption, immorality, corruption, oppression of human rights, selfishness, greed, extremism, fundamentalism and materialism reign supreme. It results in the decline of values and ethics, propagation of racist and master race policies, unfair distribution of wealth, waste and pollution of natural resources, poor health care and education for its citizens and lack of concern for the handicapped and the elderly. It ignores the well being of the people. It encourages the few politicians in power together with their family members and cronies to insidiously and artfully drain away the country's resources and the people's money.

In the battle against the evil regime, there will be people who prefer to do nothing or choose to be obstacles to the fight, people who are lukewarm. They are then part of the disease. Then there are the people of character, righteousness, virtue and courage, who hunger and thirst for righteousness and justice, people who are willing to sacrifice to ensure good prevails at all costs for the well being of the nation- they are part of the cure. Not all these good people may see victory when it comes. In fact some will be persecuted, prosecuted, imprisoned, detained without trial and be casualites of war. However liberation will not be possible without them. In the fight for liberation, the ego has no place. All that is needed is just selfless sacrifice. The ego is an hindrance to the goal, which is, the liberation of the people from the evil, oppressive regime.

Quotes by thomas jefferson

" We hold these truths to be sacred and undeniable: that all men are created equal and independent, that from that equal creation they derive rights inherent and unalienable, among which are the preservation of life and liberty ad the pursuit of happiness"
"For i have sworn on the altar of God eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man'
"Single acts of tyranny may be ascribed to accidental opinions of the day; but a series of oppressions..to plainly prove a deliberate, systematical plan of reducing us to slavery'

The Sovereignity of the People

3 members of the Pakatan Rakyat (PR) state government in Perak have decided to leave the party to become independents who are 'Barisan Nasional (BN) friendly'. Thus the balance of power in the state is now 28 PR 28 BN and 3 Independent. The ruler of the state, the Sultan seems to say that as the 3 Independents are friendly towards BN, the BN has the right to form the state government. The old Menteri Besar (MB) is thus unjustly cast aside and a new MB is dubiously appointed. Now what if the 3 independents decide to become PR friendly again? The old MB still considers himself the MB. So there are 2 MBs in the state. The PR still considers itself the state government so there are two governments in the state. There is resentment by the people. There are clashes between the people and the police. There is potential chaos. There is confusion.
In my mind, the 3 independents are traitors to the people. They think the people chose them individually not the party, not the opposition. It is clear that the people did not choose them as individuals but as the collective opposition. Anyone who stood as a candidate for the opposition in the last election would have won. Politicians are trustees of the people. The people have elected them and they owe their loyalty to the people. They are public property. These 3 traitors have decided to bypass the people into the arms of the BN. They acted unscupulously, dishonestly, disloyally. They are people without good values, ethics or character. I am told that 2 of the Independents have corruption charges against them. Have they something to gain by hopping over? And the suspicion that they have been paid large sums of money too will always be there given the track record of the BN in money politics.
Leaving aside these 3 traitors of the people, what about the decision of the ruler of the state? He is supposed to be the guardian of the people. He should be able to read the sentiments of the people. He is no normal sultan. He was a former High Court Judge, Chief Justice of the Judiaciary and former King. Much is expected of him to act fairly and wisely. He should at once see clearly that these 3 have betrayed the people. The right thing to do would be to call for fresh elections in the state as requested by the old MB. How did he allow the new MB to be appointed? No constitutional provisions have been cited. How can he ask the old MB to step aside? Again no constitutional provisions have been cited. Thus there is now a dispute as to the legality of the new state government and the status of the new MB. What reasons have the sultan given for his decision? None as i know. Is he right to hide behind the dignity of royal silence? All these could have been avoided if the sultan had just left it to the people to decide in new fresh elections. He would then have been seen to have acted impartially and above the political fray. He would have acted dignifiedly as he looks. As a result of his failure to act rightly, the people who have opted for change in the last elections have felt betrayed by the 3 and the sultan.
This is the golden rule which every democratic government or monarch should bear in mind - when there is doubt- go back to the people. In a democracy the people is sovereign. If followed, there will be peace and all will be well. Just go back to the people. Problems arise when the people who allow the politicians and monarch to stay in power are bypassed and the politicians and monarch behave like tyrants.

The GAIA project

My last posting was in October 2008. Now we are in the new year both in the western and also in the chinese new year. Hwee Yong Jang the author of The GAIA Project 2012 has passed away since late last year. I purchased and read his book last December and found out that he has passed away when i visited the GAIA project blog recently. For those who are not familiar with the project, it is an unprecedented huge scale plan in this unlimited universe where earth is at the center of the plan. It includes the initial formation and the final change of the earth- the Earth's Great Change. The plan is already under process- marked by natural disasters, disease, war and social chaos- and is in its final stages now and until the year 2012- where it will end in our planet's ascension to a new dimension. In the end good will triumph over evil. 'GAIA' is a greek word referring to the earth goddess.

As i read in the papers today about the worsening global economic crisis, the gaza war and the unprecendented drought in China affecting its summer wheat harvest, it is self evident that Hwee Yong Jang's predictions are coming true. These are part of the events that must happen as part of the GAIA project until year 2012 when a new heaven and a new earth dawns upon mankind. Rest assured that we are not alone now. There are forces of good, 'angels' or 'guides' as Hwee calls them, in our midst today to assist those who have a part to play in bringing about the new era for the new world. So for all of us who hunger and thirst for righteousness, act NOW to correct whatever that is wrong around us, for the forces of good are with us.
