Right "mindset" for leadership and nation building

The above picture reminded us of last Monday's political debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.

Trump campaign was negative and filled with salesman-styled propaganda and psyops. While, Hillary had relatively more substance and more right side mindset.

After all, the American media agreed she is the most ready candidate for the job of an American President.

Whether we agree to both or either one or neither, Trump had ideas only and no plans, but Hillary had ideas, strategy and plan laid out for scrutiny.

And some will agree and some will disagree, but it is obvious Trump versus Hillary has resemblance to Mahathir versus Najib, respectively.

Not that it matters for Hillary to win. Since Malaysians generally want Hillary to win, it is strange that some want Trump to win in Malaysia.

Those disagreeing will say Mahathir has built many pyramids in his 22 years of ruling Malaysia.

However, his experience and ideas is not in touch with the times and global condition. It is based on out-dated ideas of strong arm politics.

Mahathir is not in-sync with the times and thus not translated in his campaign against Najib. Read Citizen Declaration to understand.

Similar to Trump's single issue of e-mail against Hillary and lied on everything he said before, Mahathir only has 1MDB as issue, Rosmah to pick on, and the rest are all lies.

Several commentators concluded that Hillary came out the winner. Trump was only steady in the first 10-15 minutes and comfortable discussing economic issues.

There is no clear cut win on that subject because it is nothing new but age old ideological differences between Republican vs Democrats. It is century old debate with no winner.

Generally, it is agreed among political analysts that Trump was unprepared, unpresidential in behaviour, and lack the temperament of the CEO.

Trump goes shooting his mouth with the most hypocrit of statements, lies in his denials and claims he can make America great by doing things better but no specific plans towards nation building.

His attitude is all negative. See the similarity?

In his debate, Trump is not interested to come out looking Presidential with facts and plans but only to please and hold his position among white supremist and racist conservatives voters.

It is not exactly same with DAP as partners to PPBM, but there will be those agreeing on the similarity.

Hillary is not perfect and has her own flaws, but generally she embrace all the qualities on the right side of the picture to build a nation and not just the shallow self-interest of business and capitalist.

And that is not the qualities of Trump or Mahathir.

There is an opinion saying Trump does not care if Hillary is seen as the winner coming out of the debate.

The polls did not affected him and the outlook is still a toss-up. Same situation with Mahathir.

Mahathir has his own version of vilifying Mexican, Muslims, women, etc and building walls. He only cares that his pentaksub blindly follow and support. Those disagree he label as makan dedak.

When he was PM, he is dubbed as a nation builder but he does not have the right mindset as nation builder anymore.

Two weeks ago he ran down the country abroad in London to fulfill his greedy political quest. During his 22 years, he called those drying out dirty linen abroad for domestic political ambition as acts of betrayal. That we agree.

Expect the pentaksub to reponse with calls of dedak. It shows it is the truth and they have no credible answer.

16:70 And Allah created you; then He will take you in death. And among you is he who is reversed to the most decrepit [old] age so that he will not know, after [having had] knowledge, a thing. Indeed, Allah is Knowing and Competent.

16:71 And Allah has favored some of you over others in provision. But those who were favored would not hand over their provision to those whom their right hands possess so they would be equal to them therein. Then is it the favor of Allah they reject?

You can't change someone's behaviour, all you can do is remind them, and hope that Allah will change their heart." - NAK

I'd love to see a debate held in Malaysia between say, the head of Government and the head of Opposition, similar to that of the US presidential debate.

Imagine, Najib battling in words with whomever the Oppo chose to be their Fuhrer.
Just imagine...the debate stage but with Malaysian politicians on it.
Try imagine.
What do mean you can't imagine it??

Let's hope this healthy exchanging of ideas will materialize in the next general election.
