50 Reasons Malaysia Will Never Achieve Developed Nation Status

Reason # 1.



The patched up garbage bags you see here are the result of three scavenger attacks occurring within twenty-four hours of having been left next to the garbage bins on the other side of this compound wall, each time resulting in some of their contents being strewn about on the ground after each attack, thus needing re-bagging. They were brought inside where they shall remain until the next time the city council garbage collectors come by which they do thrice a week. Three scavenger attacks and resultant litter-clearing-and-re-bagging exercises are a bit too much for one in the midst of savages to bear.


Reason # 2.

Malaysian Standard Time, as established and maintained by the National Metrology Laboratory, http://time.sirim.my/, is not normally followed to the letter in the following instances:

Keeping appointments, reporting for work, etc., etc., etc.



Reason # 3: 

Traffic rules. No one adheres to them except when cop presence is detected, generally-speaking. An undisciplined nation, or a significant proportion of it, is detrimental to national development. For every step forward made towards advancement, the undisciplined percentage of the population causes it to slide ten steps backwards.  Nevertheless, national development is still possible, make no mistake about it, but it's an uphill climb all the way, an uphill climb up a steep slope. Evidently, only a handful of determined patriots will not, like everyone else, give up at some point and look for something easier to strive for.
