马哈迪不是种族主义者

马哈迪再次为他那20来年的土著扶持政策(affirmative action)辩护和坚持, 坚持他的新经济政策NEP,30%的工程生意和执照固打制,特许准证AP施政等。这回的矛盾和谬论,再透彻和清楚不过了,他的几个重点如下:

“马来民族根本就不能竞争,没有华裔4千年的文化底蕴。他们(其他土著)会羞耻于承认自己不如人;我不会耻以承认,我当年在医学系没有办法与其他华印裔的学生比较,其他6位马来学生都被抛到后头,如果当年不是英殖民政府要保障培养多一些马来人,我是不可能当成医生。”

“我们已经立国50多年,要到什么时候才不再区分种族,和给以马来人特殊待遇?一直施行,到一天,华印裔愿意放弃以他们的发源国家民族自居,直到他们放弃各自的语言和源流学校。”

马来人的弱势(handicap),就像打高尔夫球那样,有些人比较先进,有些人比较落后;给以“缺陷礼让”是确保公平,不是偏见或歧视,这才是真正的公平。我们的社会还是需要扶持政策的。”

注:在高尔夫球里,技术越好的handicaps越低,越落后的handicaps 越高,做为一种水平的区分。先进的给落后的“礼让杆”handicaps,各自照着自己水平等级来打球,看看你在自己的水平等级,多少杆打完几个洞。许多比赛的确是会以如体重等级,来区分组别以示公平。

(1) 30年内,新加坡从第三世界岛国跻身先进发展国,日本30年内从战后的一穷二白跻身世界经济强国,被扶持了大半个世纪的马来民族,是什么成就?在“扶持政策”的名,实实在在的是身体力行吗?时间上,与其他成功的经验比较,这是一个警讯;这是不是错误的方法?执行上致命的偏差?执政的愿意正视吗?

(2) 国阵下,“土著扶持政策”之名,真正行的,制造的是一小撮的精英集团,往往是有执政集团的直属裙带关系的,与执政不寻常关系的商人,得到暴利。其中不乏华裔和印裔。把国家大部分的财富,集中到极少人数的手中。没有执政党关系的决大多数人民,包括马来人华印族,什么也沾不上。这是执行上的致命点?有可能纠正吗?如果人心的贪婪不可能纠正,那是不是需要在施政上,独立执法上改进?

  (3) 你知道所谓的30%政府工程固打是怎样的吗?A, B, C, D, E, F级的建筑承包商或供应商,不是70%不必保留,是每家合格的公司,必须有30%土著参与。数以十万计的公司里头,那里那么多有兴趣,有本钱,有能力,有心在这行业立业的土著?有的,大概自己成立公司,因为纯100%土著公司又是另一个更高的层次了。于是大家像求神拜佛那样,每个月的薪水理所当然,要车要房要种种,大部分是免费的30%股份,求得用他的名字。结果,就是强婚盲娶!说什么竞争力?说什么handicaps? 说什么公平?

  (4) 几个华裔,因为与他老马关系好得不得了,所以他给他们,很多很多独立发电厂的执照;给他们很多很多的独家赌博执照;给他们很多很多的工程,一夜间这些官商成了世界级超级大富豪。他大大声的吆喝,“你们这些人反对什么?为何不满?华裔在NEP里头,同样得到利益和荣华富贵不是吗?NEP不是只惠及土著的!”。

  (5) 于是,他的小跟班,那个绝对不认错的小混混,更大声的吆喝“嘿,这些这些,都是华人的财富。几人几人在超级富豪排行榜,都是华印裔!看到吗?我们要公平分配!我们要60%的国家财富,这样反映种族比率才公平!”

 (6) 首先,开赌场,建独立发电站,拿得工程的那些华印裔,先不说怎样得到执照,不说议价公不公平和不谈道德。这些人肯定花了天大的心血,万事起头难的吃尽苦头不说,这些人也要辛苦耕耘,流下汗水和泪水,才得到回报。历经披荆斩棘的苦难,坚毅不拔的毅力,值得敬佩。多劳多得,辛勤换来的收成,这样放诸四海皆准的大原则,谁也不容否定。

 (7) 接下来,别人当上赌王,电王,糖王,油王,油棕王,橡胶王,船王,电视王,网络王。。。就算是华人印度人,排在超级富豪榜,占大多数,那又怎样?难道身为华裔印裔你就会得到好处,这些财富就是所以华裔印裔吗?吆喝什么?发什么飚?这是财富高度集中在少部分人身上,贫富鸿沟加大,是大部分国民(不论什么族群)都不利的。这不是种族的问题是吧?这是政治意志和决策,要不要破解垄断,要不要设法造就全民中产的理想?难道,制造出马来超级富豪,一般的百姓马来人就得到好处吗?

 (8) 我想,没有多少马来西亚人会反对,帮助马来西亚40% 最贫穷的社会成员,提升为中产阶级。没有人会反对,除去对最富裕的20%人的各种优惠。如欧美国家,对最富裕的少数1-2%人口,又占国家大比率财富的,实施更高(甚至达40%)的税务,以填平贫富差距,和取自社会,用之社会的原则。

 (9) 好了,马哈迪,当你大言不愧的称赞已故AP大王是新经济政策下,造就的骄傲时。你不如把2万多张的入口准证AP交给任何一个人,看看他会不会成为超级富豪吧?怎样分配AP?给谁AP,政治背景和关系大概需要说明一下吧?30%保留?

  (10) 在这样的扶持土著政策下,普通土著/非土著百姓在这个扶持政策下得到什么?为了造就汽车入口准证AP的实行和实行保护国产车政策,入口车的价格被定高了成倍。结果造就了一个土著AP大王,一个国产车公司,几个时代的人民(主要还是土著居多),被迫付出更高的代价与收入不符汽车价格。扶持?还是从这些人身上榨取财富?

  (11) 照马哈迪的说法,为什么要扶持政策?因为马来人不行(这点我不同意,但容后另述)。他把华裔和印裔的竞争力和成功,说成是因为有数千年深厚的文化底蕴,所以更具竞争力。是这样吗?当年移民来马来西亚的,绝大部分是为了逃避战争和被卖猪仔,来到马来亚当苦力,当矿工,当割胶工人的。这些人是如何历经刻苦耐劳,节俭筹集财富,不惜代价,牺牲自己享乐的欲望,让下一代受教育,重复的过程,脱离贫穷。你看到吗?成功不是必然的!当别人付出努力,得到努力的成果的时候,容得你嫉妒吗?任何人,任何民族都可以逃离贫穷弱势的命运,不关压迫,不关环境,关键在,你愿不愿努力?知识是脱贫的唯一途径!

  (12) 马哈迪?你既然知道,华裔印裔在教育方面的认真,即使是在有限的资源下运作,也证明这些教育是可以造就人才,可以造就具有面对世界竞争力的下一代,可以改造脱离贫穷的困境。甚至很多的土著,包括不少政治人物的后代也在华校独立中学求学;只因为他能够让下一代更具竞争力。那为什么要非要华印裔放弃他们的教育不可?

  (13) 难不成是如你的逻辑,因为土著弱,没有竞争力,如果华裔印裔愿意自毁武功,暂手斩脚,自重槌脑袋100下至智商减半,不再学华文,没有4000年的中华文化熏陶,我们就是一样的啦!这样就可不分彼此,大家一家人,和乐融融,happy ever after?

  (14) 马来西亚族Bangsa Malaysia,必须是单元的言语,单元的宗教,完全同化?这才会为国家骄傲,效忠国家,才会富裕?2020年时马来西亚就可以成为先进国,平均分配财富,和谐社会皆大欢喜?谁来创造财富?哦!重点是分配吗?你去工作,公平分给我吧!你看到他这理论里头的野蛮种子,让人目光如豆的麻醉药,和民族自强毒药吗?

  (15) 唉,老马,你总不能说,叫人不可以学英语吧?那如果有人办德语课,日语课,会妨碍你马来西亚族吗?那为什么偏偏学华文和淡文就会妨碍马来西亚族的成立?在家里说华语淡语就会造成不效忠国家,是要效忠中国或印度吗?那如果以英语交谈,是不是会有效忠英国或美国的嫌疑?神经病!狡辩!

  (16) 我是不相信你办学,有华校办得认真!我是怕孩子会被你的老师校长,在弱小的心中,烙下不可磨灭的信心和人格打击!我是怕你的老师不够资格,被勉强扶持去当老师,误了孩子!我这样说你明白吗?原谅我坦白,但绝对没有要贬低任何人的意思。

 不会是因为自己告别过去,从印裔变成了马来人,要其他人必须跟进吧?说马哈迪是种族主义者,是太过抬举这个人。他爱马来民族?他爱马来西亚族?他只爱他自己,他只爱权势利禄和高高在上的感觉,他只爱永远当法号司令的人。任何在他路上妨碍他的,他不惜手段的除去,代表马来象征的统治者,代表马来智者和良心的法官们,代表马来新生代开明的政治人物。他不是种族主义者,他只不过是个权力眷念狂!一个过气政治人物,害怕遭到以前施于迫害的人,回来寻求报复,不惜一切代价自保。

转载:马哈迪的最新言论 HUMAN DEVELOPMENT SEMINAR, MELBOURNE

1. I would like to apologise to the students and others for failing to turn up to give the talk I had agreed to.

2. I would also like to thank those who sent get well messages, fruits and flowers while I was in hospital in Melbourne.

3. Honestly I feel I have lost an opportunity to meet and talk to what may be the future leaders of Malaysia. For this reason I am writing down here what would have been the contents of my talk.

4. The suggested topic for my talk was, "Are we ready for 1 Malaysia: Does Race Still Play a Part?"

5. I will be frank but factual. My only interest is the country we all love. I am past self-interest.

6. First let me refer to the slogan "1 Malaysia".

7. Without the Government spelling out the precise meaning of 1 Malaysia, different people are giving their own interpretations which not only differ from each other but are in conflict with each other.

8. The Malays generally interprete 1 Malaysia to mean real adoption of the national language as the home language by every citizen as happens in other multiracial countries. They also expect the abolition of Chinese and Tamil schools and ensuring the private sector has a fair participation of Malays and other Bumiputeras.

9. The Chinese and Indians interprete 1 Malaysia to mean amendments to the constitution to eliminate provisions for the special treatment of the Malays and their protection by the Rulers, removal of the quota for Malays in the Civil Service, termination of the NEP, termination of the 30 per cent quota for Malays and indigenous people in business, termination of the quota for awards of licences, contracts and Aps. All awards to be on a competitive basis and open to all irrespective of race. They also expect perpetuation and maintenance of Chinese and Indian schools by the Government.

10. These two interpretations of 1 Malaysia admittedly are by the more extreme groups. The more moderate ones from both sides are milder in their expectations but their minimum interpretations still provide irreconcilable conflicts. 1 Malaysia clearly means different things to the different races.

11. This is the present position and it is obvious that race still play a very important role.

12. Question: It is now more than 50 years since independence. For how long do the Malays expect to be treated as special and different from the other citizens?

Answer: For as long as the Chinese and Indians prefer to be identified with their countries of origins. For as long as they want to keep their home languages and their schools.

13. Question: The so-called social contract were made a long time ago. We were not involved and we cannot be bound by it forever. When can we ignore the social contract and draw up our own social contract?

Answer: When everyone agrees to throw out the old social contract and replace it with a new one.

This will take a long time. As the new contract will be between races, racial factors would be included. Unless both sides agree to give up their races' own rights as spelt out in the first contract i.e. the preservation of own home languages and schools etc. the rights of the indigenous races to their special position etc must remain a part of the new social contract.

It is not certain that each would not demand for more than what they got under the old contract. It is likely there would be no agreement and no contract. Ths would lead to perpetual conflicts.

14. Question: So there will be no solution. The racial divisions and conflicts will remain.

Answer: In Vision 2020 one of the objectives is to create a bangsa Malaysia.

The belief at that time was that if Malaysia becomes a fully developed country, it would become very prosperous.

This prosperity would be fairly shared between the races. There would be less jealousy between them. There would also be less fear of any race being dominated by any other race.

The political cooperation between the races would also be made more meaningful as loyalty to the country would override other loyalties. In fact non-racial parties would be the trend.

It would take a long time perhaps - depending on fair wealth distribution. But once it takes off the pace will increase.

Malaysians of all races would be so proud of their country and its great achievements that the desire to be linked with other countries would be much diminished if not disappear altogether (as happens in prosperous multi-racial countries like the US - where the German, Eisenhower led the war against Germany. Eisenhower was American first and his country of origin was irrelevant to him).

The Malaysians at that stage would be Bangsa Malaysia first and always. The thing to do now is to ensure prosperity for the country and its fair distribution. Removing current rights of any of the races at this moment will only lead to racial conflicts which would obstruct prosperity.

15. Question: There are Malays in the opposition who condemn the NEP as unfair discrimination.

Answer: There are also Chinese and Indians who appreciate what the Malays have done and support the NEP. They are not so vocal for obvious reasons.

One should look at the Malays who condemn the NEP. If they are politicians or supporters of certain parties their views are motivated by a desire to get Chinese support. They assume that they themselves would lead the nation and enjoy power and opportunities through Chinese support. But there will be a pay-back period. The support is not for free. The Malay leaders will be like Nizar (Jamaluddin) when he was Menteri Besar of Perak - mere puppets.

The non-politically educated Malays feel ashamed that they have to be helped. They would like to be recognised as people who succeeded on their own. If we study these people almost invariably they have benefited from the NEP. They appear to be ashamed of this.

They are ashamed to admit that they were unable to compete with the other races. I am not ashamed to admit that I cannot compete with the Chinese and Indian students when studying medicine. They had much better results than me and the other six Malay students for entry into the Medical College. Even at that time the British promised to the Rulers to help educate the Malays. I had my chance because of the affirmative action then. On pure merit I would not be a doctor today, not because I was not qualified, but my qualification was lower than others.

One has to remember that the Chinese civilisation is more than 4000 years old. No other civilisation has lasted that long. Naturally they have developed a culture better able to survive under all conditions. It is my belief that if the percentage of Chinese in the United Kingdom for example is the same as in Malaysia, UK would be better developed than it is now. It is not surprising that the Chinese excel in developing Malaysia (for which they are amply rewarded).

It is not shameful to lose out against them. Simply to catch up with them we need handicaps. To be given handicaps is to ensure fairness, not discrimination. That is why in golf you have handicaps. That is why in all contests there must be equality between the contestants.

It is selfish if having benefited from the handicaps you want to deny others from having them.

But when all is said and done, those who are given the benefits of handicaps must make honest efforts to use them properly. If they don't then they must forfeit the handicaps in the future.
