Political State of the Nation II
Recently, The Royal Malaysian Police had done a raid that affected the videogame stores in K.L. I understand that they wanted to 'ban' the stream of pirated videogames coming in. This has sparked minor outrage among the youth, as videogames are important to us. I stand among those upset with the ban. It isn't because we hate the goverment (except a certain few) but because they did the raid during the school holidays, leaving us bored to death (figuratively). What they're probably trying to do is cut us off from video games and then organize some event that'll bore the dead to, well, death. Yet, despite this, fake DVDs are still being sold and such stalls are actually springing up like daisies/mushrooms. Makes you wonder doesn't it. Why are the police scaring the videogame stores and not the DVD stalls? I don't want to jump to conclusions (but it's so fun, I can't help it) but one possible explanation is because they aren't good at playing videogames so out of jealousy, the boycott the videogames but not the DVDs. Another-more down to earth-explanation is that the DVD stalls give good bribes while the videogame stores don't bribe or not as much so are forced to stop selling. It's just a theory.
