Of Communism and Hans Christian Andersen

I was reading the newspaper this morning (Ok ok, I am STILL avoiding tv news) - "Govt Will Not Allow Chin Peng To Return." He is the former Communist Party of Malaya leader, and was considered a great threat to the country during the Emergency 1948 - 1981. Mr ex-Communist was deported out of Malaysia several years ago and now some idiot of a politician is trying to bring him back because "he no longer posed a threat and as such the government should consider allowing him to return on humanitarian grounds".

I call that a tasteless sort of joke. This man and his minions had killed so many people during their insurgence, terrorized the country and that successfully put himself into the darkest annals of Malaysian history. Why suddenly you want to come back after the long exile? Feeling old and suddenly missing the Motherland? Go and bite the dust Chin Peng!

Personally, communism IS NOT really a bad idea from what I have read (before and now). 

"Communism in the Marxian (1848) sense refers to a classless, stateless and oppression-free society where decisions on what to produce and what policies to pursue are made democratically, allowing every member of society to participate in the decision-making process in both the political and economic spheres of life." - Wikipedia   [See what I mean?]

UNFORTUNATELY, people drifted from this pure ideology of communism, and only a select few dictates the fate of the majority, which is very very bad decision. Hurm, I will not pursue this topic further or some might get the idea that I am supporting communism in this fair country.

Anyway, I finished reading a fairy tales book by Christian Anderson (the unabridged edition). Long ago I read about the Brothers Grimm, they collected folk tales from the German people and compiled them in a book. Most of the stories are not suitable for younger children - all about blood, death, deceit and evil plots. My fav author also mentioned in one of his books that fairy tales were indeed about 'blood (violence) and sex'. This is VERY true. So please slap yourself in the face and read the original fairy tales, not the short and revised versions for children under 5.

When a hero fell in love with a beautiful girl he met somewhere in the woods - Isn't that about lust-at-first-sight @ sex? How can a mermaid have sex with a young and handsome prince? So the slut had her fishtail exchanged with a pair of legs (sounds like a very bad joke). The SCANDAL! All because of so called-love (not)!

We have read the many abuse Cinderella ('Ashputtel' in original German) endured because she was meek and timid - violence. How about Jack who felled the beanstalk, the bloody thief who just added murder (of the poor giant) and environment destruction (the beanstalk) to his credo? Jack is a TERRORIST, people!!

Don't tell me you enjoyed reading about his adventures (in the land above the clouds, via magic beanstalk) and actually thought of his theft of the golden harp and the hen that laid golden eggs as righteous!! PLEASE feel sorry for the big and ugly giant who fell to his death because of this evil and VIOLENT kid. Big and ugly does not mean you are evil. *snif*

I hope this short entry can open up your mind to the truths about fairytales.    

p.s.
- I pity Sauron from 'Lord of the Rings', he had waited hundreds of years for his ring, which was stolen-by-force from him. Tch tch tch. And you wonder why I want the Shire to burn? :) Oh and I hope I am not offending anyone with this post. Just trying a new spectrum of writing here.

Yep. That confirms it. You think too much. Which is not a bad thing.

And all this while I thought the bastard Chin Peng was dead! Haha...
Bring him into the country and we'll stone the bugger to death.

Aizan; are you implying that I am thinking too much about SEX and violence? (ok maybe violence) I just wish that many readers realized that some stories are altered, happily-ever-after propagandas.

Stoning is just too good for him. I prefer the lethal injection, in the middle of the night, and then accusing other people of the dastardly deed. It's rampant here anyway.

Hanging. By the neck...and slowly lowered into a vat of acid...until dead....

Shadowthorne said...

ying_ko_4; I hope you mentioned that sentence to Mr Communist and not me. Because I am so evil I'd rise from the dead to haunt you. :)

Maybe he wanted to die n have his body tanam in his tanahair ...


As for those fairy tales...I do agree with you 100%...

Don't forget to mention about those children cartoons: mickey mouse, tom n jerry, etc...all these cartoon so violent...

Shadowthorne said...

Tenchi; You can die anywhere and any when. I think he just wanna make a huge splash before he dies. I can make his dream come true - but a SPLAT rather than a splash.

Oh yes, cartoons are ULTRA violent too. I forgot.

I was given a book of the original Grimm's fairy tales a few years ago. Very good. I love HCA's fairy tales. They are so sad. I wouldn't pity Sauron though. Fair enough you want to side with him, but pity him? I don't think he would thank you for that. :)

Shadowthorne said...

Inky; Sauron said he will share power in Middle Earth with me. Like I believe him.... oh well. The thought counts.

As far as communism is concerned, its ideologically quite good, but as we all know things seldom remain ideal for long. But whenever I talk to the Russians here, they say that they miss the times of the Soviet Union, where things were simpler and more affordable. Now you have hideously expensive NIKE, ADIDAS and GUCCI being sold here with few takers and the streets full of old grandmothers begging. Coz they were pensioners who lost their pension when the Soviet Union broke up.
Thats capitalist democracy 4 u!!!

BTW....nice take on fairy tales though...have changed my perspective. And I agree, Jack was a douche bag!!! :)

Shadowthorne said...

Vyazz; Erm.... does those big companies got a lot of money from the people of Russia? Or the merchandise are mostly for tourists?

Personally, I used to like the ol USSR too.
