Pressuring change through blogging II

A late addition to the issue concerning pressuring change in the government through blogging is Zul Funkmasta. He postulates that not only the education system that does not encourage voicing out ideas, but it is also the Bruneian culture of discouraging the voicing out of ideas, concerns and criticisms.
