One of Indonesian weaknesses and faults is to suffer from complacency (this word does not exist in Bahasa Indonesia, you can try to consult any Bahasa Indonesia dictionaries), ignorance attitude, unpreparedness to increase alertness and achievement, so that we are too easy to be overtaken by others.And you know what? He's talking on why Indonesian oil uplifting decreases and mining technology lags behind. I don't know what Taufik Hidayat has to do with it.
Look our badminton (for example Taufik Hidayat), look Indonesian football and Indonesian Football Association now. Even its chairman is jailed but refused to be replaced, despite FIFA warning.
What does it all mean? We, Indonesian, no longer know ethics, no longer have dignity, shameless. Period.
The last para in above quote, I daresay, is an insult -- at best a careless generalization. Pointing out a whole nation and people to blame for such technical problem is of no use. With all my respect, he should've known how to avoid over generalization in order to make policy workable --or to write sensible op-ed.
