The Future...
"The new global order must be rooted in the reality of a pluralistic and multicultural world. While we must continuously strive to realize noble ideals such as democracy, human freedom and dignity, we cannot turn a blind eye to the realities in our society. We cannot accept that all those who clamour for democracy and freedom are well-intentioned. Just as the devil can cite scripture for his own purpose, the most totalitarian regimes can also trumpet slogans about liberty, equality and freedom in order to foment hatred and create disorder. The threat of ethnic fanaticism and religious extremism is very real." -- Anwar Ibrahim, The Asian Renaissance. (1996)
