rant: dirgahayu hedonesia

{if you happen to visit this page. well, it’s a rant! you’ve been warned}

I’ve just read an interesting interview with PAT about the ‘independence’. Some interesting view:

Indonesians have a consumptive mentality.

Hidup Hedonesia! =/

We swallow everything, including the name of Indonesia.

Sebagai budayawan, sepertinya PAT prihatin betul kebiasaan menelan bulat-bulat itu. Yah, kita lihat saja.. kebudayaan asli digadaikan pada Amerika dan Arab. Serta dalam porsi lebih kecil, pada budaya-budaya lain yang sering tidak kita ambil pusing tapi pelan-pelan mengerosi jatidiri kita.

How does that happen?
Because we are not productive. Only productive people can have a strong character. We do not have a character, because character is developed by a productive working habit. …

Ya itulah, karakter masyarakat nusantara yang dulunya telah berbudaya luhur rela digadai karena selain memang biasa menerima budaya asing, sekalian mengamankan kapling di …
Aku dulu pernah nonton siaran teve Malaysia. Rasanya banyak sekali muatan positif yang dipancarkan melalui layar kaca di Malaysia. Bahkan untuk hal-hal kecil seperti senyum.

Our nation often prides itself on being a religious nation. Why is this not reflected in daily life?

hey, i should stop before i become unproductive🙂

Angkatan muda Indonesia, tunjukkanlah keberanian
untuk menumpas kebusukan!!
