Is Democracy a right choice? As a happy citizen I won’t bother to democratize my government. I want GOOD GOVERNANCE – that will help very much rather than messing with lots of changes, elections, political jargons, massive party campaigns – cluttering my daily peaceful life. I want none but PEACE and STABILITY that in return provides ECONOMIC progress.

In a government with nothing to complain, citizens will become obedience and will fight for the status quo.

Democracy is expensive with constant changes to the government in countries such as Italy or Thailand or at least in every 4 to 6 years in some other. Massive resources are wasted in establishing and running the ELECTION COMMISSION, renting or building electoral centres, plebiscites or voting paper, counting centres, recruitment of paid volunteers, campaigning pamphlets, banners, slogans, media advertisements, posters and countless strategies. Not to name the soulless advocates of this system who die vaguely in supporting their respective leaders regardless of the causes citing for example red and yellow shirts in Bangkok and University Students’ movement in Jakarta.

Democracy could be a vehicle of enrichment for some politicians with hierarchy of cronies and followers who control businesses, law and orders, and social instruments such as gangsterisms. Some powerful leaders could overturn parliament easily and indirectly convert the system to dictatorship such a case as Saddam Hussein, Adolf Hitler, Muammar Ghadafi et al. Some manipulate the system to stay in power longer such as Ferdinand Marcos, Hosni Mubarak, Bashar Al Assad, Soeharto, Tun Mahathir Mohamed et al.

Do you still consider Democracy an ideal system versus the others. Nope. I am a proponent or in some case an advocate of Absolute Monarchy. And the last kingdom remaining exists on an island in the East – the last kingdom on earth to be precise. This system provides stability as there will be a guarantee of single leadership for a longer period as opposed to democracy etc. Some political parties or coalition of parties could be a dominant force in a political scenario in such countries as Singapore with PAP in a close sight or Barisan Nasional (BN) in Malaysia.

This kingdom is rich with natural resources and are distributed in good portion to the population. Added further with free everything from academic regardless of level, health care, no income tax, no VAT or service tax, cheap fuel with heavy subsidies, low water and power tariffs, cheap road tax, no tolls payment, low parking fees, and thousands of other unforeseen benefits – what more do you want. Million of free dollars – that you have to work out by yourself.

Be GRATEFUL to Allah the Al Mighty and pray for the prosperousness. Stop complaining and never regret on what you have because someone else on the other place is less fortunate or unimaginably poor enough to survive on minute basis.
