That's in light of the Covid-19 pandemic lah.
These certain people have asked the government to save them....or up front, save their businesses.
Their spokesmen spoke everyday for them as I highlighted one in this post,
Well, the government actually listened and obliged when it announced the other day additional assistance in the form of financial aid in the billions of ringgit for them.
As expected, there were complains still.
But never mind lah, it's just the way they are.
Today, it continues, and this time they want a new law to protect themselves,
The government would probably listen to that one too and come up with a law that ensure these people will not suffer any losses, possibly none whatsoever, as it looks like that's the only way to satisfy them.
Yeah, all these talks about losing businesses amidst people being scared for their lives.
Well, these people control the economy what, and they need to continue being so. They need to make sure the Covid-19 pandemic wouldn't change that status quo.
Honestly, I don't care if the status quo remains or replaced with a new one after this pandemic is over.
It's not going to change my life whatsoever.
But hopefully these people will remember that they also need the tongkat of "affirmative action" to survive at one time or another.
Hopefully they will learn something from this episode and will not be so arrogant in future.
Just because they have lots of money due to their businesses does not make them superior than others whom they used to condemn as lazy and corrupted and backward and such.
Yeah, hopefully they will learn....at least most of them.
And those high and mighty corporate people should learn from this episode too.
All these while, they live their luxurious lifestyle and proud of their fat salaries, look down on the working class people, thinking that they are immune from all the hardship of the common people....now they know they are not as privileged as they thought they were.
Now they know they can die too and they can be reduced to begging for government aide to survive like those people they look down at all these while.
As for the common people, they are used to hard life, and begging when necessary. They will survive.
I'm actually a bit upset today, that's why I'm writing this.
Actually, I just hate arrogant people who think they are superior than others simply because they have more money and live a more luxurious lifestyle than others.
I'm taking an afternoon nap now. Bored like hell in this confinement.
