Progress lies in being able to ask the right questions.
I once watched a science documentary. And the group of scientists there had a meeting to first determine what were the right questions to ask in their investigation. Now this is important. Without the right questions you cannot arrive at the right answer.
Now this is the quandary we are facing in Malaysian chess. We are not doing well. But nobody is allowed to ask the right questions.
If you even attempt to do that they set their gangsters on you. They attack, spread misinformation, lies and slander. They try to publicly humiliate you and then they force you out etc.
What certain people in MCF are doing is merely to stop any real questions as to why we are going backwards. Today they are even ratifying the back doors. Today if you ask, how come those people can get in through the back doors, they will point to the selection criteria to say that it is all legal and ratified in Council. And there is nothing you can do about it.
So that is the single major effort by MCF today. To legislate the back doors and to knock out the people who dares to ask questions or are in the way of them making questionable income.
And we still clamour for a GM?
Then let me ask you this question. How will that be achieved? Their formula has been tried for 30 plus years and they have only produced kangkung players full of excuses. Simply put, we get what we focus on.
One definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.
Very simply, if they are as good as they say they are, then ask them ALL to show us their stuff at National Close. Why have a side list? They are beating super GM's, winning rapid events in Brunei etc etc. So there is no need to twist and turn and try to bypass competition. Now that is the right question. Yes?
What other questions do you think we should be asking?
