have you ever heard about Malaysian Sensitivity Syndrome? it might sounds ridiculous but somehow it makes sense. malaysians are very sensitive and that makes who we are.what's wrong with being sensitive,anyway.i recently read a Q&A in the edge's talking edge column. this is kamraslan's answer to a question sent by a reader.take a glance-
sensitivity is a sensitive issue.malaysians suffer from sensitivity more than any other nation on earth and there seems to be no cure in sight.taht's why we need our malaysian doctors who have been living and working in europe to return with their extra skills and experience to help cure us. and yet, despite various incentives, very few had decided to come back.why is this?maybe, it has got something to do with our sensitivity. at the moment, many sensitivity sufferers are getting nasty reactions to Amir Muhammad's The Last Communist. this documentary is still banned becaude,well, i'm not really sure but it seems that the word 'communist' is still very sensitive. when asked why umno would be interested in the banning issue, umno secretary-general datuk seri mohd radzi sheikh ahmad was reported in the nst as saying that it's because it concerns umno a lot.'it is also where the communism is concerned,umno members are very sensitive about it'. they are a very sensitive bunch.
there are a great many environmental factors that induce malaysian sensitivity syndrome(mss), including talking about race, religion, politics, corruption, the police, thought and so on and so forth.so far, the only known cure is a heavy dose of a drug called Instant Sensitivity Allevation (ISA). the only problem is that this drug is highly addictive, which leads to paranoiac fear and a loss of independent thought. but thanks to recent tests conducted in america, it has proved to be good at helping sufferers to imagine that the condition has gone away because it can be ignored.mss happens a million times every single day and it can strike at any moment.it has become antibiotic-resistant and nobody is safe from it.maybe,our overseas doctors are aware of this.after all, what made them stay away in the first place?
to be frank, i do believe that malaysians are sensitive.they're...i mean, we are sensitive about almost everything.but i don't think that this kinda thing is a bad thing.it shows our concern about our race,nation and religion.but of course,it must be channelled out in a right,positive manner.aren't you happy people staying out of your way by only being sensitive? ;p
