Be Aware: Every War Starts With Good Intention.
The great grandmother of my grandchild would kill me if I use the word 'catfight' to describe what's going on at Aware now. "Don't you grow up to be a male chauvinistic pig"' she'd say.
Why does every war start with good intention? The old guards had their good intention when they started Aware years ago. Now the newbies have taken over Aware's ExCo saying they have taken over with good intention.
Isn't it a shame that good intentions attract death threats?
The good intention of George W Bush to free the people of Iraq got tens of thousands of Iraqis maimed, disabled and killed. With his 'good intention', Bush brought deaths instead of freedom to the Iraqis.
For every public statement on any action to serve one's agenda, you will find politician, office seeker (some aka as glory seekers) use the self-sacrificing-snake-oil talk of "do good" and "for the best interest of the people/members" to sell.
If there is so much good intention(s?) going around, why is there so much bad vibes?
The answer is: The "good intention" of some always ends up as "bad consequence" for others.
The "good intention" of some can be interpreted as "evil intention" by others.
Or is one woman's meat another woman's poison?
Sometimes all this talk of "service to people, to mankind" gets a little cheesy, unauthentic and, truth be told, self-serving.
If we can use a 64-slice CT Scan to know the medical condition of our arteries and heart, can we get a 128-slice Scan to read the "good intention" hearts of office seekers?
Meanwhile it's nice to learn that apart from Minister Mentor, we now have a Feminist Mentor.
How I wish we can have a
Love Mentor or
Peace Mentor or
Happiness Mentor or
Justice Mentor or
Democracy Mentor or
Equality Mentor or even
A True Live Without Fear in Singapore Mentor?
With the current hullabaloo, don't be surprise if a Gay or Lesbian Mentor may just appear with a Homophobe Mentor to match!
That will be interesting!
While the shebang is getting louder with Aware, our liberty and civil rights are going to the dogs with the sound of silence on the "Public Order Act", the "Films Act" after they were so arrogantly passed by the lawmaker with such contempt.
Life Goes On while rights bite the dust!
