Kita sejajar dengan Nigeria, Ecuador…

Baru baca forewordnya, buku ‘The Confessions of Economic Hitman (EHM)’ udah bikin merinding dan ‘nelangsa’. Apa yang ditulisnya bener2 match sama kejadian di sekitar kita yang kita amati sehari2 di Indonesia.

Dan jelas2 nama Indonesia disebut di buku ini sering sekali sebagai contoh ‘perfect’. Coba mulai sekarang akan kutulis bbrp ‘excerpt’ yg berkesan dari buku ini.

Today we do not carry swords. We do not wear armor clothes that set us apart. In countries like Ecuador, Nigeria, and Indonesia we dress like local schoolteachers and shop owners. In Washington and Paris we look like government bureaucrats and bankers.

Nama negaraku, Indonesia disejajarkan sebagai tempat jajahan baru sama dengan Ecuador dan Nigeria. Bukan meremehkan dua negara ini, tapi kita ternyata senasib. Sama2 jadi korban bodoh yg kelaparan di lumbung padi.

  1. ah.. I’ve read that book long time ago. I still can’t find out why our goverment doesn’t have any pride (though I know, the proper word to describe our country is ‘devastated’?) and let those Economic Hit Man ruin our life. Loan it is, but by world bank? such a stupid choise..
