I am Talking about "The Truth Itself As It Is"
I am talking about "the truth as it is” without my understanding or
perspectives, outside our acknowledgement, nothing to do with your own
ones. This is about the "truth as it is”, i.e., the truth itself.
am not talking about the truth of the Gospel or Quran, or any other
religious scriptures. I am talking about the real truth, the truth
without and outside, different and separate from religion, philosophy,
theory, ideology, nothing to do with mine, our or your preferences,
likes or dislikes. This truth is the truth in itself. It needs none of
us to stand up and defend it, let alone explain.
already said before, the truth is that if there is a beginning, then
there must be or will be an end. Or if there is no end, then it means
nothing has started. In other words, in this case, in relation to West
Papua and Indonesia, and the rest of the world:
- If there is no conflict in West Papua, then there was no conflict at the beginning; and there is no need to end anything;
- If there is conflict in West Papua, then there was a conflict at the beginning, and
end the on-going conflict in West Papua, one must acknowledge honestly
that current conflicts has a beginning; therefore to end the conflict
one needs to undo or just acknowledge the beginning.
always prevails. At no time, nowhere, by nobody, truth ever been
defeated, let alone questioned. Whoever tries to explain or defend s/he
will find himself/ herself in a wrong position because the truth needs
neither defender nor explanation.
What it needs is just, once again, only acknowledgement and acceptance,
nothing more. We must acknowledge what we have done before which are
against the truth. And if possible, we must also accept the truth that
we did against the truth, or if not against, then just not the truth
itself, but something other than truth. (Even though I do not know what is" "not the truth itself” or "other than the truth”).
Another point is that "none of us need to defend the truth.”
If there was misconduct, an act against or other than the truth in the
past in relation to West Papua and Jakarta, it needs none of us to
defend the truth. The truth always prevails. If it seems nothing
happening today, just give it a time, as it knows the best time and
moment it comes out as the truth no matter what, who, where and when.
Atom bomb, grenades, Gospel, Tripitaka, Quran, Ethics, Philosophy,
Psychology, Theology, Theory, Science are not needed even to explain it.
The truth is the truth; it does not need defender or explanation. How
can I explain a dog as a dog, or a white colour as white?
if I think that Indonesia is occupying my land, then let the truth
prove itself that West Papua is an occupied land. However, if the
Indonesians believe that they are not occupying West Papua, but they are
here to develop West Papua, then let it be. If Papuans believe that the
Act of Free Choice 1969 in West Irian was fraudulent, undemocratic and
morally unjustifiable, then let the truth proves itself as it is.
However, if Indonesians insists that the Act of Free Choice 1969 in West
Irian was carried out according to the principles laid out in New York
Agreement and according to the universal democratic principles, then do
not use weapons, helicopters, jet-fighters, terror and intimidation to
defend what you guys belief as the truth. Just surrender to the truth to
prove itself to be true.
Because finally, the truth will
prevail, because it always prevails, neither Papuans nor Indonesians;
not my/ our truth or their truth.
