K'tan clown prince clueless on basis of social contract

Here's a gem from the clown prince of Kelantan on Malaysiakini.

Tengku Faris: Non-Malays should not seek equality
Andrew Ong | Apr 12, 08 2:10pm

Kelantan Crown Prince Tengku Faris Petra said today that Malays had been coerced into giving non-Malays citizenship and the latter should therefore not seek equality or special treatment.
Since you're royalty, you deserve some respect. But having said that, I'm no monarchist and my respect needs to be earned. So, let me start by saying "Ain't there no books in the palace? You need to read more." Here's a little something to start you off:

From sean-the-man's The Real 'Social Contract'.
There you have it!

In no uncertain terms, the deal was that: Citizenship was granted, in exchange for the use of the Malay language. NOT in exchange for the special position of Malays.

So what is the basis then, for the special position of Malays? According to Tun Dr Ismail, the special position is a privilege accorded to the underprivileged..., not a birthright entitled to a certain race.
It's really unfortunate that a member of the royalty, especially a future sultan, would choose to endorse such a disintegrative view of Malaysian society. That it is fair to enforce unequal first and second classes of citizenship. That it is fair that the majority Malays, like ancient gods and feudal lords, must be continuously appeased and sacrifices offered, lest they open a can of whup ass on their lesser countrymen.

Here's a second item for you to read:
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.
That's Thomas Jefferson, The Constitution of the United States of America. You'll do well to remember that.

sean-the-man is glad that he is a native of Perak, where his liege commands that each of his subjects have an equal place under the sun shining on his state. My hand has 5 fingers, guess which one is sticking up.

just a wild guess!

some form of spins -

Kelantan govern by PAS = Kelantan Crown Prince deliver speech (so speech must be from PAS government = PAS is also for Ketuanan Melayu.

the BN's only mistake was to educate the population.
