Kua Kia Soong: RPK the cyber anarchist?

I don’t consider myself a “fanatical fan” of RPK (Raja Petra Kamarudin) nor am I a “bottom feeder” in the fetid Malaysian political aquarium. 

(‘Cyber anarchist with belligerent agenda‘, Jan 2, New Straits Times) I have been observing Malaysian society since the 50s and the pretentious apologists in the mainstream media have never failed to amuse me by providing so much comic relief. To call them prostitutes would be a gross insult to sex workers.

Their attempts to discredit RPK will surely fail now that these formerly imperious state propaganda pieces have been reduced to “old newspapers” and have to compete with us, the people in cyberspace. What a leveler the Internet is!

First of all, is it Malaysian to discredit somebody by labeling him an “anarchist”? The obscurantists in the establishment would want Malaysians to believe that anarchists are irresponsible troublemakers who do not care about society.

Little do they know that one of the world’s greatest public intellectuals, Noam Chomsky, is an anarchist by political persuasion.
