The 9th May 2018 GE14 is just one more in a series of changes of governments all over the world. Back in the 1800s, soon after the Napoleonic Wars, what is known as ‘The Age of Revolutions’, empires collapsed and new republics emerged.
Then the 1900s saw nationalism reach new heights between the WWI and WWII period. Now, 100 years later, it is happening all over again.
It is inevitable that Malaysia also experiences what the whole world is going through. There is a saying: either we change or we will be changed. And nowadays people want change just to taste change even if there is no reason for change. And this is what governments need to constantly remember when the mood for change sweeps the world.
