    Indonesians killing other Indonesians 

    A sudden thought last Friday made me angry like hell.

    Are our leaders a greater threat to Indonesia than the so-called-evil occupants for the 3-1/2 (more or less) centuries?

    If, let's say, Soeharto was the British governor of India when Gandhi started to arise, would Gandhi be allowed to live & later touch millions of hearts outside of India?

    Do we value human lives, the gifts of Allah, more than our western neighbors?

    Behold, Indonesia is a nation where heroes (human rights activists) were murdered and forgotten like insects. Where brilliant minds are declared have no value and erased from the face of the earth. This is the land where Ita Martadinata & Munir killed and perhaps future heroes will be murdered, with no glimpse of future justice.

    From our own culture & in our own soil, Soeharto was born. We were responsible for our own blood. We killed our own children. We, just like our Vietnamese (Vietcong) & Cambodian (Khmer Rouge) neighbors, have this weird culture where elimination of human lives solve problems. And apparently, we are very good at it.

    I heard some people would still linger at the thoughts of why they missed the old-days of Soeharto where stability rules. If (military) stability was built on top of cruelty & genocide (not to mention selling out our economy), would I still be enjoying it? Is that a really necessary sacrifice for the good of all (utilitarian)?

    Are we that kind of ignorant people who would demand blood for mere-short-stability which can collapse any second? Are we really that short-sighted?

    Afterall, I thought Indonesia is the land of peace-loving people, where justice prevails & harmony is a must. Should we start reflecting on our own values?
