As I grow older (ok, I am not that old enough), I noticed that a lot of people are arguing with each other on small issues that most of the time does not really makes any senses. Statements can produce a whole lot of argument and this will create bigger things; quarrels, fightings or even bad mouthing. The reason is very simple - the quotes below explains everything.
"People are not disturbed by things, but by the view they take of them." ~Epictetus
Politics are heavily influence by this. In everything, there are always a lot of angles one can view. And whatever one might say, they are probably right depending on which view they are looking at. Currently the issue Mat Saby saying that Mat Indera, the pro-communist guy was the hero of the country has created a nationwide issue with everybody saying things to justify their view is the correct ones.
Previously, the Bersih 2.0 issue also was the nationwide issue. I do believe it is a political influence- or if you did not agree, you just simply have a different view with me. Once a statement is out, everybody is debating based on their view they take of them.
Whatever you view is, my advise is to make sure to always look at the positive side angle and always think about what benefits you can derive from the view that you have given.
