Now What?

Yes, now what? What now after the fierce campaign presidential election? With both sides cheating at grassroots level (sorry, I don’t buy any side’s claim that they play totally cleanly, and I don’t believe that there is any structural and massive cheating from any side; black campaign yes, but not structural and massive cheating) and that delusional Prabowo refusing to accept the result? What now after Jokowi is named president-elect by KPU and has too wait for MK’s decision, now that Prabowo has filed a lawsuit against KPU’s decision?

Believe it or not, the campaign goes on. Both sides are still so emotionally defending their candidates. Families broke up, friendships destroyed, and all to support the candidates they claimed to know wholeheartedly as good leaders (well, at least I can say that Jokowi did do something as mayor and governor, while I’m not so sure about Prabowo as a leader except only for the way he takes good care of people who have serve with him in the Kopassus; and I have a personal score to settle with that mad dog but that’s beside the point). Many followers of one candidate are still bragging and many followers of the other candidate take the bait gladly. The ‘war’ is not over. Not yet. Not by a long shot.

Some of the supporters of both sides have already stated that they all can still be friends after the election is really over. Well, that’s a noble thought, but will it really go that way? The problem is, the last presidential election has opened the eyes of people from both sides about their friends and relatives who happened to take the opposite sides. They supported their candidates so fiercely, libeling the other candidates even more fiercely, and when it’s over, when they realized that they’ve sacrificed friendships for somebody they didn’t really know and for an expectation yet to be proven, it may be too late.

That’s the main reason I hate politic. No, I don’t need to learn anything more about politic. Whatever politicians try to make it sound like, politic is always the practice of influencing other people on a global, national or individual level. I don’t want to be influenced and I don’t want to influence people. I simply do what I want, and if it makes people happy so be it and if it angers other people I simply say “Fuck off. I don’t owe you anything.” I listen to people, but in the end I always go my own way. If that makes me inhuman, so be it. Seeing the way supporters of both side fought for their candidates, I’d rather be a crow.

I’m always my own president, my own leader, and my own man. No one rules me. If I have to face the consequence for that, I’ll pay the price gladly. I believe what I want to believe, and I’ll fight for what I believe.

 

Gladly.
