Lulu Could Not Help But Think Of This Aesop's Fable

Umno Youth is going to embark on a "fact-finding" [note the inverted commas] mission based on the history of the formation of Malaysia and drafting of the Federal Constitution?
Some highlights
1. aim to comprehensively educate (the public) on building a Malaysian nation
2. "explaining" the social contract that Malaysians have agreed upon
3. the History subject in school would be reviewed if needs be.
Malaysiakini also reports that the first phase of the plan would be solely an Umno initiative before it is opened to the other component parties within Barisan Nasional (BN)
Lulu could not help but think of this Aesop's fable, The Man and the Lion
A MAN and a Lion traveled together through the forest. They soon began to boast of their respective superiority to each other in strength and prowess. As they were disputing, they passed a statue carved in stone, which represented "a Lion strangled by a Man."
The traveler pointed to it and said: "See there! How strong we are, and how we prevail over even the king of beasts."
The Lion replied: "This statue was made by one of you men. If we Lions knew how to erect statues, you would see the Man placed under the paw of the Lion."

What can we learn from a fable?
Are we able to turn the table?
Do we have a run-away horse from the stable?
Can we do what we are able?

UMNO Youth itself needs education. And history?? UMNO Youth is the most divisive element in the nation's history. A bunch of idiots.

Monk: "UMNO Youth is the most divisive element in the nation's history."

How absolutely true! Recognizing this fundamental truth is a MUST for any possible progress to be initiated. Not doing so, will be just beating about the bush.
