My country witnessed a "peaceful" street demonstration yesterday on the streets of our capital city. The demonstrators wanted a cleaner government in the coming General Election and a better country for everyone. The country ruler allowed the demonstration to be carried out in the stadium to ensure there is minimal disturbance to the peace and security of the nation. However, the government betrayed the people by eventually banning the assembly totally and declaring the gathering as illegal. Despite the layers of roadblocks and obstacles setup at all major and minor entry points into the city by the police force, tens of thousands of people who feel the responsible to exercise their rights for a better future came to the capital city. In return, these peaceful protesters were treated with authority's water cannons and tear gases, not to mention the kicking, dragging, banishing and shouted with abusive words.
With this incident, I start to wonder can we trust the politicians? To me, whatever political parties or alliances they may be associated with, they are all politicians. Unless they are equipped with the great philosophy of humanity and truly respecting the dignity of lives that every living beings are equal, they are nothing more than a whole bunch of cunning jackals who only works for their personal interests as their top priority.
I truly feel the time to establish the correct teaching of the Law for the peace of the land is here. It is time to Rissho Ankoku. What other hopes can we have for our nation other than we foster our future generation youths to be a person a noble principles with correct philosophy of life? If the youth of SGM, Sensei's true disciple doesn't start this endeavor, who will? The youth are our future! The darker the night, the nearer the dawn. The time for people sovereignty is about to come!
Today, my perspective on shakubuku no longer confined within our organization, just to expand our membership, but a social responsibility to save our TanahAir!
Time to Rissho Ankoku is now! It start from me!
p/s: Somehow the song "Do You hear the People Sing" from Les Miserables keeps ringing in my ears.
