Divian Nair and his team from ‘We are Majulah‘ have produced a video which suggests that ‘Singapore has a problem’. He said unlike the Americans who had ‘freedom’ to bind them, and unlike the French who are held together by their belief in ‘liberté’, we do not have a ‘glue’ to hold us together as a nation.
Divian then introduces a word ‘majulah’, which is the first word in the title of our national anthem, to suggest that it is this word which should be the glue that holds us together.
He said ‘majulah’ is not a Malay word, but is a unique word because it is formed with the input of two other cultures (Chinese and Tamil), and also because the word calls us to action. ‘Majulah’ means ‘let’s go forward’.
The video has now gone viral and has been shared over 10,000 times on Facebook, and over 15,000 times on Youtube.
Many of the comments on the video posts were positive. Some though, have said that it is just fluff, or just plain propaganda.
Mrbrown though may have just killed the new wannabe social movement barely three days after its launch.
In a video released on late Wednesday night (17 Feb), the well-known satirist takes a dig at Divian’s idea of a social ‘glue’.
Acting as Kim Huat, Singapore’s #1 patriotic fan he suggested that the word ‘basket’ can be the social glue which binds us together as a nation.
Kim Huat was “stuck at home, on MC for food poisoning” when he “taps into his gastritis and laosai, and from his pain, shares his word for the nation.”
