RIGHTS, OBLIGATIONS AND NATIONALISM


RIGHTS, OBLIGATIONS AND NATIONALISM
By: Togar Lubis


Many parties, particularly the “official” the point that at this time feeling the love of the State (
nationalism) people of Indonesia have started fade. Complaint is probably correct, as evidenced by the emergence of the desire for a number of areas separated from the Republic of Indonesian (NKRI). Bad luck, which most often they are groups of people sloping Non-Government Organization (NGO) or the activists who frequently cried out loud about the rights of the people. Then, true sense of nationalism of the people in this country began to fade?.

You really need such a study so that more in-depth and objective, so we know why and what causes this is the case. We can not continue forever lecture people with the phrase “Do not ask what the country can be given to you, but Ask what you can give to the State.” The slogan that it is not in accordance with the age, classical, and even seemed to act stupid people.

Indonesian people, especially poor people fed up with the greeting officials and political elite. Reasonable, because in reality the poor pay a visit required officials and elite only at the time of the elections and elections.
Officials, especially in the area continue to create all kinds of regulations that come with sanctions to excavate income. Strangely, these officials are not at all of the criteria or the requirement to make regulations (regulations) so that local regulations often conflict with the law or regulation is higher.

Head Tax and Evaluation Center Retribution Finances Of Dpatement Tjip Ismail the mid-2005, there were about 120 local regulations on taxes and regulations on the 450 levy issued by the government’s 30 provinces across the country. In addition, there are about 2,590 local regulations and tax regulations about 10,360 levy made by the 370 districts and cities in Indonesia.
“On average, there are four local regulations and tax levy of 15 regulations issued by the province, while the respective districts and the city average there are seven local regulations and tax levy of 28 regulations are developed. Thus, there should be 13,520 local regulations that have been published by the region, “said Tjip at that time. From the number of local regulations to date 28 April 2005, the Ministry of Finance has recommended the cancellation of 448 local regulations. Recommendations are made up of local regulations, local regulations in the field of industry and trade, transportation, labor, agriculture and livestock, crops, and the environment.

On the one hand the people as objects regulation be ask continue to always obey meet its obligations. Meanwhile, on the other, the rights of the people are ignored, mastered even irregularities. Revealed number of corruption cases that made officials at the central level and local factors also cause people to become increasingly apathetic and be cold all the issues that are facing this nation.


Another thing that caused be pale sense
nationalism is the absence of a balance between rights and obligations. People are required to meet obligations, but not given their rights, giving rise to a sense injustice. Slowly people feel only as a “milch cow” which continues to be the object of interest of others and begin expression how to behave themselves with all Call apathetic towards government.

Examples of real indignation of the people is clearly visible during the elections of the Election and they no longer use rights with. Moreover, the people know that the only rights that they have given and officials and political elite without having to be discounted here. Even people’s rights to this one, many political elite who continue to visit and even to laud a people to get their legitimacy. Attitude taken by the people this is one way that it is most secure, because not cause friction against the authorities and ended in prison.

However, there can be a guarantee that the saturation of the people this will not slow be accumulate into an upheaval that eventually lead to “disintegration” of the nation and the integrity of NKRI. I don’t know. Regard.
