Conflicts are essentially about change

More and more Malaysians are now urging caution and requesting Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim (DSAI) to go slow with reforms, and if possible, to maintain the status quo in a number of areas of life as they believe that making sudden changes can lead to conflicts.

Rome was not built in a day and Malaysia is certainly not going to become a Great Nation overnight. It will take time and this is why Malaysians are urging the administration of DSAI to make changes gradually.

Conflicts are essentially about change. While it is understandable that reforms are necessary, only the vital changes must be made for now such as eradicating corruption while other changes can be done while Malaysians catch their breath.

However, there is no hard and fast rule. The DSAI administration must play it by ear. This means they have to evaluate where the critical changes need to be made without hesitation and eventually work out other reforms.

Making changes can also lead to confusion and a certain amount of pain, hardship and suffering. This is why the DSAI administration must be guided by wisdom and steer skillfully and cleverly through the maze of reform.

But there is no denying that reforms are necessary and must be made. This is inevitable. Change has to come but it has to be paced well and in rhythm and harmony with the expectations of the people for the administration of DSAI to meet with success.
