The Melodramatic Story


Hahaha..I laughed with this article, OK I will paste a part of it, because I am sick with all melodramatic story.

You know at Kompasiana, most of the Headline Fiction are come from the melodramatic stories. Let’s say : prostitute, beggar, pauper, orphan…. Ugh common, I know that people need our concern, but not for the exploitation of their suffering. They need our action, it is very common in Indonesia, every body know about it. So better to help them in the real world, not say this and that many times on internet.

I read about how the inspiring story actually is a wrong story, because people, for a hundred years, already modified it become pathetic story, that make other people get affected with their suffering. For me it’s like exploitation. You can read my opinion in Kemiskinan Sebagai Komoditi.
