A Christmas tribute to the Crazy Ones

19
369

On a dark night, in a distant frontier of the oppressive Roman Empire, a child was born who would go on to proclaim Good News to the Poor and point to a new way of living, based on a different set of values.

This Christmas Day, let’s pay tribute to those who dare to be different – the ordinary people who speak truth to power, who raise awareness of a gentler, more holistic model of development that is in harmony with our environment.

The ones who keep reminding the government of the reform agenda – local democracy, accountability, transparency, housing for the people, universal healthcare for all.

The ones who extend a hand of solidarity with the poor and the marginalised, including the migrants, refugees and asylum-seekers in our midst – those who dream of a place for everyone, every creature under the Malaysian sun.

The ones who say a new more just world is possible, the ones who make change possible.

Check out the video at the top by Andrew Ng.

Wishing you all a joyous Christmas and a wonderful New Year in the new Malaysia.

Big thanks to the NGOs for speaking up against the clowns in the government and also the opposition. So far, I see no improvement from the new government, only racial riots and falling ringgit. Embarrassing!

Merry Christmas, everyone on planet Earth.
A season to sing the Greatest Is Love For God Is Love.
Love knows no bound, as diverse as mankind is.
We as one human creation in God’s intelligence, let’s live together in this one liveable planet called The Blue Marble. And care for it too.

The lyrics state that God watches us from a distance. He only sees the good and perfect. This means that humans can see the pain and suffering and ugly of the world, not God. This means that humans must alleviate pain and help others, not just think about afterlife, eternal or not.

If you have fear, look for God.
Need hope, go for God.
Otherwise be an atheist!
