Actually we still have these brilliant scientists, and many of them
are chinese in Malaysia, but their views are not taken seriously
because the leaders and those in power don't understand anything at

As usual, just because they don't understand new ideas, it means that
these ideas are all wrong.

Low salaries is not the main reason why a nation is so backward. Look
at China and Russia. Their salaries are low but most citizens are
still loyal to their nations and will not take up offers of better pay

In Malaysia there is a general belief that leaders and decision makers
need not know what they do. This is clearly shown by the Malaysian
federal government policy that anyone can be leaders in agencies
despite them not qualified to work in these fields. For example,
geologists head account departments, and vice versa.

So clearly brain drain is not the reason but idiocy is.

Why Malaysians tolerate idiocy and blame it on brain-drain?

Because Malaysians don't really care. They only care for getting
better paid jobs instead of improving the lives of Malaysians in

The reason is actually very simple. Malaysians think that they are
alright but statistics don't lie.
The income gap is the same as sahara nations, i.e. the worst in the
The human trafficking and slavery is among the worst in Malaysia.
Water and electricity supply is also among the worst in the world
judging from the electric lines shown in the towns in Darfur, Sudan
well known to be the worst in the world.

Malaysians are proud of their development. It certainly looks better
than Mecca of Saudi Arabia, but Bangladeshis are laughing at the state
of development in Kota Kinabalu.

Imagine nobody complain when Johor has no water at all in their water
reserve tanks and yet nobody complained while Singapore cried and
wailed when their water reserve tanks are still half-full.

Despite all these miserable statistics of Malaysia, and the obvious
excesses of the police and enforcement agencies reinforced by
illogical court judgements that don't seem to understand simple
English phrases, the same government is returned to power with
overwhelming majority.

The bottom line is that, Malaysians have never really suffered
compared to Russia and China.
The only cure is for Malaysia to fall into chaos and disasters before
Malaysians react logically to preserve their livelihood. It is going
to be painful and will take decades of pain, just like what History
had told us.

Look at Zimbabwe.
