How to solve Indonesia's massive problems, corruption, sharia laws, and the rest.
Before Soeharto's downfall and the post Soeharto era, Indonesia has been bogged by problems that until so far no businessmen, politicians, and academics have been able to come up with an absolute answer to.
It just seemed to be like passing on the baton, the result is each time the baton is passed the baton gets heavier and heavier.
Worst still is that the political elites pick and choose the position they want in order to get the max out of their post.
Over the years, there has been talk about what is bothering Indonesia's political scenario, many made fun of them (at time I as among one of them too) but no action whatsoever was taken to ease the tensions caused by clergy, layman and political scavengers.
So what should be done to enable Indonesia in the forthcoming election to enable voters to gauge who can do a better job.
The problems that have been bugging Indonesia's economic deficit were:
If Indonesia is serious about these problems and working a way to have it resolved (I suppose with relative ease), then the majority of her problems could be resolved, thus being capable to overcome and apprehend any obstacles meant to undermine her economy.
Indonesia cannot continue going on with all these burden of problems pass on from one President to another. The earlier indoctrinated criteria in selecting a President is that the person should be a Javanese. These should no longer exist in this electronic era.
There are people who are smart but dare not place themselves to serve the country, and there are also people who wit themselves to service the country with purpose and intent to benefit themselves as most do.
Why the ABRI was stripped of their Dwifungsi status is perhaps a way of stripping the President of his power as Supreme Commander. ABRI claims that they stand on neutral ground but, insofar they are always the main cause of trouble for Indonesia be it political or commercial.
