We live in dangerous times

Ooi Kok Hin graduated from The Ohio State University with a degree in Political Science and Philosophy. He is also the author of the book, "Aku Kafir, Kau Siapa" , published by DuBook Press.
The current political turmoil and the impending clash between the newly minted Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi and Bersih 4.0 are going to shake our political landscape, for better or worse.
Zahid, who is also the Home Minister, would want to flex his muscle to show who’s in charge. Going by recent events, it is unlikely that he will let the Bersih 4.0 organisers and protesters have it their way.
1MDB is turning out to be a snowball crisis for Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s administration.
The financial scandal claimed its biggest victim yet, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.
The former deputy prime minister, who has nearly nothing to do with 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB), was euphemistically “dropped” from the Cabinet under a reshuffle.

I agree with author that we are indeed living in dangerous times. So few can get away with so much is worrying. The people have a little under four weeks to Bersih 4.0. Whether it can gather an attendance larger than the highest turnout thus far of 300,000 remains to be seen but I am optimistic it can.
