Students who are willing to stand up for what the believes are the one who will be the leaders of the future. They are the one who care about something, passionate and believe strongly to take actions. Student who are docile and accept any rubbish given to them are the one who are unemployable. They are the one who just sit and wait for the govt to give them jobs. They just sleep through their lives. Any wonder why we have 50K of these zombies.

Gerakan K, If you look into the events unfolding in the Universities, it is really heart warming. It is really nice to see Malaysians of all races working together, marching together to further its cause. Really, really heart warming to see our youths working so closely. I am going to have a good night’s sleep now. These youths of today will certainly be the leaders of tomorrow and they believe in non racial policies. Really, is there a chance for race based parties like UMNO, MCA, MIC, Gerakan and other mosquito parties? I think the first to fall will be… Read more »
Gerakan K… Alias… hyperpolishia,
They is 2 types of graduate in our country. first type of graduate …. got knowledge but no brain. They cannot differentiate what is right and wrong, so what for study? they are just repetitive parrot like you. We want graduate to have knowledge and brain where they can seek truth in life and stand up for the truth. This is what education for.
