If you look at the lyrics of Malaysia's 55th Independence Day theme song,

You will realise that the government treat their pure subsidy-based programmes as their 'fulfillment to requests by citizens of Malaysia"

If that's the case, it's very pathetic - subsidized services won't solve Malaysia's root cause of poverty, corruption or even the safety issue.

If rakyat is earning enough, living decent life - they won't need those subsidized services at all.

Is this what the current government can achieve, after 55 years of independence?
Is this what Malaysia has become (a subsidy-dependent country), after 49 years?


Macam malam ikut siang,
Macam bulan ikut matahari,
Satu Malaysia terus berjuang,
Janji kita ditepati,
Kata kita dikota,
Janji kita ditepati,
Hidup rakyat dibela,
Masa depan diberkati,
Janji sudah ditepati,
Kini masa balas budi,
Janji siapa ? Janji Kita,
Janji apa ? Janji Satu Malaysia,
Janji siapa ? Janji Kita,
Janji apa ? Janji Satu Malaysia,
( ulang dari awal )

Ini janji kita, BRIM Satu Malaysia
Ini janji Satu Malaysia, Terima Satu Satu Malaysia,
Kata kita dikota, Klinik Satu Malaysia,
Janji kita ditepati, Kedai Satu Malaysia
