Now, Does It Ring Bells?

At the end of September 2011, I wrote a posting to commemorate the 220th anniversary of Mozart's final opera, The Magic Flute. In that posting Fear Mongering Like The Queen of The Night, I said:

The Queen of the Night - a representation of obscurantism , in other words, the practice of deliberately preventing the facts or the full details of some matter from becoming known. This is ironically what is happening right now, where people are denied the knowledge of what they want to know. Instead, they were threatened with a charge of the Official Secrets Act if information is to be revealed. And this is why many people to this day has either no clue or they acted foolishly without the proper and sufficient knowledge. The aristocracy's obscurantism of the social problem's is the main factor the start of the French Revolution.
I also put in the Three Ladies as the agents of the Queen:

The three ladies of the Queen - Represents the agents that will carry out her order. The mainstream media has been ordered to do a smear campaign of Bersih. The main goal is simple: manufacturing consent, to create a consent among the simpleton minded (those like Papageno) that Bersih is a no good thing, without presenting the reasons why Bersih would do such thing. They would also twist to include statements from leaders who are opposed to the idea of clean elections.
I've also included a video of that aria "Hell's Vengeance Boils In My Heart" as well.

The Magic Flute has a strong relation to the Age of Romanticism and shares its relevance with The Enlightenment and The Age of Reason philosophy. For the latter, the character Sarastro represents enlightenment and reason. (See also The Enlightenment and The Age of Reason at Malaysia Today)

Yesterday, Najib has warned Malaysians about revolution, saying that (from The Malaysian Insider):

“We are in a transition, if we do something without careful planning like a revolution, it will be followed by chaos, and things will become worse without a systematic transformation system. Malaysia is now in a stable situation, and we must ensure this peace and stability remains."
Revolutions happen because people are angry, had enough with the a regime that has committed so many atrocities and lastly - being put in a point of last resort. The French and Russian Revolution are those examples. The point being emphasized is that nobody wants to do it unless pushed to the brink.

Similarly, Najib claims that Bersih rallies cause damage and has called imams and religious people not to get involve in activities. It is as equal as defending those who commit atrocities and malpractices whilst bulldozing the innocent people.

In other words, what he means is to play dirty in elections. It also means that mind slavery still remains or as with an anagram of UMNO (U Must Never Oppose). Does this also mean of declaring war on LGBTs, pluralism, liberalism, secularism is equivalent to what is that above?

Do you notice what Najib said is similar to what the Queen of the Night says in The Magic Flute? Except, if it is Rosmah that is saying that, then it is quite identical and similar in terms of metaphor and context. You got to be very somewhat naive and dimwit if you still are willing to be maimed and forced upon even if the men who rule over you commit a gross misconduct.
