Abstract

In his first public address since stepping down as Malaysian Prime Minister, Dr Mahathir Mohamad shared a withering view of Asian governments, chastising the leaders for losing their self-respect by conforming and kowtowing to the West. Asian leaders need to recognize that although democracy is still the best form of government, there is no guarantee that it will throw up good leaders. He believed that Asians are waiting for a credible leader from a credible nation, after a long period of physical and mental colonization.
