Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs
Usually represented as:
- Self actualization
- Self esteem
- Love & belonging
- Safety & security
- Physiological needs
The Maslow five-stage model
(The pyramid base where it is broadest reflects the basic needs that everybody must have, i.e. food and sleep; this is followed by health and shelter which are also fundamental; then going up the incline, there are the optionals like sex, achievement and respect, etc)
The Maslow pyramid simplified in easy words:
Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs
In pictures, illustrated by DAP personalities:
RECOGNITION – Papa & Mama Dapster are VIPs
GROUP – DAP’s mostly evangelical churchgoers and friends
PROPERTY: DAP evangelista warlord’s new house in Ipoh, Perak
FOOD: Yang Berhormats in DAP look like they probably enjoy Porky Fries
Gospel of Prosperity
Dapster sheeple support this pyramid structure which provides their Dear Leaders with Gold and Glory in return for being fed ‘Gospel’, which is not limited to the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke & John but includes the gospel of Ubah, “Ini kali lah”, ABU, etc.
The sheeple are also taught by their evangelista shepherds to chant “four legs (DAP) good, two legs (Umno) baaaad” – allusion to the classic political satire Animal Farm by George Orwell.
At the apex of Maslow’s pyramid sit the non-sheeple or the 10 percent Chinese. We’re the ones who shamelessly indulge our “morality, creativity and spontaneity” and get satisfaction – ‘virtue is, after all, its own reward’ – from doing so.
But never mind the self-indulgences. What I shall elaborate on next are the following three aspects – problem solving, lack of prejudice and acceptance of facts.
THE TOP 10 PERCENT
MASLOW’S HIERARCHY: PROBLEM SOLVING
I can’t provide the solution to all the BN’s problems but I’ll share what recommendations I’m able to offer based on my fields of expertise.
(1) Umno must neutralize The J-Star and their EvangeliSTARs to avert a blitzkrieg in the War of Perception – a war which the BN is at present losing badly.
Zamkata The Star is EVIL!
(2) Umno must take back the Malay-majority Parliament and state assembly seats presently given over to the MCA to contest; work on the ground must be carried out in these areas by the Umno machinery – starting now!
(3) Umno must recover the Muslim public spaces from PAS and this includes regaining control of the masjid and surau committees.
The restriction order by state religious departments that prohibits politicking in the mosques must be enforced as well the Sultan of Selangor’s titah that mosques are a place of worship meant FOR MUSLIMS ONLY must be adhered to.
There should be no more modelling sessions by Hannah Yeoh et al for photo ops that serve only to demean the sacred function of a mosque. Ahli-ahli Parti Paling Tidak Apa (PPTA), tolonglah bangun dari slumber / selamba.

MASLOW’S HIERARCHY: LACK OF PREJUDICE
Only 10 percent of the Chinese are free of the shackles of herd mentality that make the 90 percent Chinese become such loyal members of the DAP flock.
We (the 10%) are able to break free from the acute tribal instinct mainly because of our “lack of prejudice”, be it with regard to stereotypes about other races or about Islam.
The extreme negative bias of Chinese Christians against the Religion of the Federation is most evident amidst the present hudud brouhaha.
ABOVE: Hannah Yeoh has made a series of tweets and retweets that sniped at hudud
On Wednesday (March 18), Abdul Hadi Awang served notice to Parliament on amending Act 355, which is the Syariah Courts (Criminal Jurisdiction) Act 1965. The PAS President is himself personally tabling the private member’s bill.
Responding to Hadi’s move, Lim Guan Eng termed it “a further act of treachery by PAS”. See, ‘DAP takes aim at Hadi for “serial treachery”’ (Malaysiakini, 21 March 2015)
The DAP is clearly ramping up the Hate factor. Guan Eng’s evangelical party is promoting hatred for the PAS Malays, after successfully brainwashing the Dapsters to hate “Umnoputras”.
MCA appears to be on the same page as DAP over the hudud issue, and the Chinese BN party looks likely to foment dissent within the ruling coalition among the Dayak Christian parties.
Former MCA vice president urges “break away from Umno”
Gan Ping Sieu is the MCA Syariah Law and Policy Implementation special task force chairman. He told the press in the video above:
[0:34] “This is a tipping point, this is bottomline; if Umno push for that [hudud], this is the tipping point and bottomline of MCA.”
“If I were [to] have a say, I would invite the rest of the component parties to break away from Umno. And because the consensus of nation-building has been broken, MCA has a historical duty to do the necessary.”
MCA’s departure will be no loss but Big Brother must nonetheless strive to prevent the native Christian and Indian votes from draining away. BN cannot afford to haemorrhage the Sabah and Sarawak heartland nor the estate and urban squatter Indian voters.
From Gan Ping Sieu’s talk above, it appears that the MCA is already preparing to sleep with their fellow Chinese in the evangelical party. All the more reason for Umno-BN to beware the MCA’s lethal Gunting dalam Lipatan.

MASLOW’S HIERARCHY: ACCEPTANCE OF FACTS
Will the Chinese attitude towards the BN soften or harden the coming three years in the run-up to GE14?
I predict that the Chinese anger and resentment will be even greater. Hence the BN war room should plan their election strategy on the assumption of obtaining only five percent Chinese support.
The 10 percent Chinese – like me at the narrow end of the Maslow hierarchy who reject Pakatan – are able to accept the facts (we’re not in denial) and thus make our analysis objectively.
Many among the 90 percent, on the other hand, are unwilling or do not possess the capacity to do so.
They’re more like their beloved DAP evangelista leadership whose prosperous mind is perpetually focused on satisfying their physiological and material needs, e.g. craving for this food and that food – at odd and all hours of the day – and shopping for branded goods be it Prada or Gucci.
Such people therefore have little spare time left to spend on fact-finding or analytical thinking.
Hence as as consequence, the Chinese electorate will remain in thrall to the DAP and with each passing day, feeding their hatreds to a gargantuan size – exactly like the grotesque DAP evangelical leadership.
Umno appears to want hudud
It’s a scary thought – at least for a non-Muslim like me – but hudud may soon become a fact of life in Malaysia.
Even Tengku Razaleigh, the long-serving Kelantan MP who’s favoured by the Chinese, has given his green light. See, ‘Ku Li lauds hudud law amendments in Kelantan’ (The Malay Mail, 20 March 2015).
Umno vice president Mohd Shafie Apdal is agreeable too. See, ‘Hudud: Menteri Umno setuju sokongan Adun parti‘ (FMT, 21 March 2015).
Umno deputy president Muhyiddin Yassin was one of the key players involved in the setting up of the joint PAS-Umno hudud technical committee, and so he is by inference all for hudud as well.
I suppose Najib Razak will ultimately cave in and agree to the implementation of hudud.
I told them but they didn’t want to believe
Indulging my “creativity and spontaneity” and doing “problem solving” and all that transcendental stuff that Phase 5 folks sitting atop the Maslow pyramid are supposed to do is all good but at this juncture, the Chinese ‘problem’ appears to be intractable.
I’ve spent a good part of the past five years warning the Chinese that if they continued with their behaviour and allowed themselves to be led by the nose by the greedy DAP evangelistas, they will not be able to sidestep the day of reckoning.

Yes, she certainly is.
Well, the chickens are coming home to roost. Good luck to the Dapsters.
Remember to thank the DAP, yah.
