Malays are far from that concept of self-actualisation!

Laungan ini masih di kehendaki!

I still vaguely remember studying, for my introductory psychology multiple-choice test at my university, about a notable American psychologist, Abraham Maslow, who said:"The basic needs of humans must be met (e.g. food, shelter, warmth, security, sense of belongings etc.) before a person can achieve self-actualization - the need to be good, to be fully alive and to find meaning in life."
In general the Malays are no where near achieving that elusive concept of self-actualisation mentioned by Maslow above.  Malays in general need to feel fully alive, fully happy and must find that true meaning of life.
Achieving all of the above, the Malays must be very focus in what ever that they want.  Take the upcoming Umno assembly where leaders will be selected from within the stable, and they must choose wisely.
The Malays must be focused on the fact that only less than fifteen per cent, give or take, of Malays have succeeded in achieving that semblance of that much sought after concept of "self-actualisation" the rest are only pretending to achieve so and are unhappy.
Having a lifetime mortgage terraces houses and driving Proton product vehicles paying through their noses on monthly payment, does not make anyone happy.  They can only pretend to be happy.
Well, may be this upcoming Umno general assembly is the right moment for the Malays to ponder the meaning of life and how to change their real predicament that they are in now by choosing wisely.
Again in general, the Malays are not a happy lot, if they do they would not have broken up into three pieces, of course I am speaking metaphorically.
For the Malays who are in position to vote in a good future leader they must do so wisely.  They must choose leaders that are hell-bent in fighting for the Malay rights and of others genuinely.
Choose a leader with a good track record, especially a good employment record and history, and not to vote for pretty faces. Choose a leader that are not smudge with controversy.
Do not be fooled by their sweet talks come party elections, just do not be conned by their lies.
In other words Melayu, pandai pandai lah memilih calun yang betul betul berwibawa, bukan calun yang buat make-over dan recycle yang cuma mahukan kan jawatan kerana gila kuasa.
Pilih lah pemimpin Pemuda dan Wanita dll dengan fikiran waras.
Kalau saya ada hak mengundi, saya akan mengundi veteran saperi Sanusi Junid kalau nama beliau ada dalam kertas undi dan saya akan menolak Dollah Badawi kalau nama beliau ada dalam kerta undi.
Bedza nya bagi saya, saya yakin kepada Sanusi sebagai memimpin bangsa Melayu dan saya tidak langsung mengundi Dollah berdasarkan sejarah beliau yang menghampakan kan bangsa Melayu sewaktu di menjadi perdana menteri. Sewaktu di memerintah sebalik nya dia tidur dengan memberi padah yang buruk kepada negara dan bangsa.
Salam, Hidop Melayu dan Selamat Berjuang!
