And so he is found guilty by the courts ...
I really hope this will end the noxious drama that has been going on for years.
There are better things to occupy the front pages of our newspapers than the drama involving the greatest drama queen of all time.
Maybe now we can spend our precious time on more important matters and issues that benefit the rakyat instead of continuous political grandstanding by irrelevant politicians that add no value to the quality of life of the public in general.
I really don't get the public's fascination for him ... he is just a washed out irrelevant political animal who refuses to accept that his time is up.
Besides, he had his chances in the 90s and he squandered his opportunities back then.
During our regular chats, my journalist brother and his friends told me stories of what happened during those period of political decadence within Umno.
I also listened to the stories circulating around my politically active friends back then when I was in Johor.
I have a great respect for Dr Mahathir for I think he is brilliant and all that, but I do blame him for the ascension of Anwar Ibrahim in the 80s and 90s where he developed his brand of insidious political network of corruption and money politics that is now pervasive in Umno.
From my perspective, what happened to him when he lost it all and how it happened is something he needs to ponder upon in these twilight years of his.
I believe that everything in this world is pre-destined according to Allah's Design, and how we walk that road towards the destination that has been pre-determined is a matter of making choices on how to get there.
Whether we get to that destination full of Allah's Favor and Blessings, or we reach that same destination full of shame and Allah's Condemnation, is dependent upon the kind of choices we make as we journey towards the end.
And that is precisely where I differ from Machiavelli's "The End Justifies The Means".
To me, the means is the reason for our living, the end is just that, The End.
