A Distrust Society

Almost every day we saw on television, heard on the radio, and read in the news paper about so many people getting easily angered and staged violence in public places, although only triggered by trivial matters.

They show their anger in many ways, such as the emergence of motorcycle gang after the murder of a Naval officer, clashes between member of the Army and the Police in Gorontalo, and an Army Captain acting arrogantly against a civilian in Jakarta.

Kompas wrote that aggressive behavior is a result of pressure due to various uncertainties in our country, ranging from Legal, Social, Politic, Economic, and even Religion.

Muji Sutrisno, a lecturer at the Dyarkara Philosophy School in Jakarta, was quoted as saying that today's society is losing a good role model. Figures or institutions that are expected to set an example and wisdom, it turns out most of them become part of the problem. It's hard to find someone who can be trusted.                    

He went on to say that such society can be called a Distrust Society i.e a Society that losses trust. If this goes on and on, our nation may loss Morality, Ethics and Wisdom.

Considering the above, I hope that all our politicians would always think and act as patrons for our society i.e. by upholding national unity based on our Constitutions, Laws, Pancasila and Traditions. And most of all, the laws must be enforced properly.

Whether it is the arrogance of people in uniform, the innumerable number of politicians involved in incidents of graft and corruption, the acts of violence by fanatic groups of vigilantes which go unpunished or degrading behaviour in the workplace and in the public sphere towards women - all of that does further trust.

It's clear your call for proper behaviour by the members of the country's elite and strict enforcement of the law is a necessary condition for improvement.

Yet I think the causes of distrust and anger probably are many. For ultimate solutions they have to be taken into account;

urbanisation and the loosening of traditional family and communal bonds, modernization and moral disorientation, globalization and loss of identity, hyper capitalism and a vast and widening gap between haves and have-nots.

I of course meant to write: "all that does NOT further trust".

@Colson,
I fully agree with you that there are more causes of distrust and anger like you have specified.
But all that should start from the politicians especially those who are within the power circle.

tak ada tokoh yang patut diteladani kemudian hidup yang semakin susah dan mungkin juga karena tidak adanya jaminan kepastian hukum sehingga masyarakat kita semakin menjadi nomaden dan seperti menerapkan hukum rimba
