Guys, here is the first article for this week. It’s compiled by one of members Male English Home Manggis, Nafi. Please, you can check for structure, diction or others.
Fine, we have known four weeks go that the price of fuel was increasing. Who is increasing the fuel price? The Government, yah that is true. The government was increasing the price of fuel to make balance of Indonesia economy. But, Indonesian people become panic, because they are afraid if they don’t get better life. Indonesian people had been panic by the time the government increased price of fuel.
The government has decided about the fuel price, we are as Indonesian people have to accept the decision it, we should support and don’t make atmosphere worse. The government has considered to increasing of fuel price since they hold president election. So many people disagree, because we knew, the world oil price was decreasing several month ago. Therefore Indonesian people want to reject decision, not only from Indonesian people want to it, but also there was rejection from DPR members.
I’m one of people who disagree about increasing of fuel price, but I don’t want to make atmosphere worse. We just need to think positive and support our government. I’m going to explain government purpose, Jokowi said: “we will direct from consumptive subsidy to productive subsidy”. Therefore we have to change our paradigm, we must not think bad, the government will educate Indonesian people become independent and smart people, it means the government doesn’t want Indonesian people not only accept something but also we do something for increasing our productivity, we will be smart Indonesian people, although it’s really hard because all basic needs will increase because of it. We don’t need to worry about it, we can pass this moment if we always think positive and just enjoy our life.
We know when the government increased price of fuel, there was rejection from various parties. Almost all people in Indonesian areas did demonstration, to show their dissatisfaction to government decision. Almost all people did anarchism, burned tires, broke public facilities, and occluded street. It made atmosphere and traffic worse, of course it disturbed our activities. Meanwhile, there was not solution from demonstrator. It’s not important to do like that, we just need to make good atmosphere and enjoy our life.
