Someone has written something not so flattering of Najib's father Tun Abdul Razak, Bolehland's second Pm.
That takes guts and conviction.
In Bolehland, if you are not careful you could get yourself into trouble.
Today, under the son's administration you could even be hauled up for attempting to subvert parliamentary democracy just because you have the guts to express your views that the powers to be may not like to hear.
Everything that has been written of Bolehland's second Pm have placed him on a pedestal, picturing him as someone almost godlike and beyond reproach - the father of development.
Was Bolehland's second Pm a Malay chauvinist?
That, I think, may depend on where you come from.
If you come from the side favoured, you are likely to vehemently disagree.
If you come from the wrong side of ketuanan, I don't know.
What was certain was that Tun Razak ushered in the NEP that, many now say, has succeeded more in enriching a small coterie of the powerful and the connected and created its own problems, where meritocracy is sidelined and entitlement reigns by din not of effort but of birth and placement.
What was certain was that since and following Razak's time, and especially during Mahathir's tenure as the country's Pm, the necessary checks and balances for a functional democracy to work have progressively been whittled away so much so that today, Bolehlanders have lost confidence in the public institutions.
And that has led to the mess that Bolehland is facing now, with the son at the helm.
Where accountability seems like a dirty word and a forgotten creature, best not mentioned.
And corruption not so alien?
