Thoughts On Independence Day

Just wanted to say this… I’m glad, that despite the inability of the government, the so-called representatives, and the political elite to talk and think about only themselves, national sentiment is at a high and it’s cool again to love your countrynation. We have learned that we ourselves can bring the nation to new heights despite the shameful mess that is Indonesian politics and leadership.

The power, is truly with the people now, to build this nation further. We are Indonesians and we will persevere – we survived hundreds of years of occupation, we fought back invaders after our declaration of independence, and now we are fighting back for independence from corruption and the simple lackluster performance of the executive and legislative.

Merdeka!
