Declaration of "Forum Lintas Generasi"


FORUM LINTAS GENERASI

DEMOCRATIC STUDY & PUBLIC EDUCATION
(Moral & Cultural Aspects: Law, Economics, & Politics)

Jakarta, January 2006

Basic Considerations

The atmosphere of democracy, which occurs after reformation, has continued to become more significant. When society is busy to explore the essence of democracy, we feel more problems emerge within the community. Those problems didn’t diminish, as a matter of fact, it becomes worse such as: the rising price of fuel which cause misery to society, famine and hunger-oedema diseases were everywhere, terrorism actions, natural disasters caused by government’s lack ness in action and policy, local political conflict in regional autonomy, bad relationship with neighbor countries, and our very eternal problem of corruptions which still added with our incapability to pay debts to IMF and other donors.

The root of these issues was no other than the abolishment of this nation’s moral and cultural values in the political life of this country. The law, economics, and politics failed to take the role as the instruments to improve society’s intelligent and welfare, and they were made as the commodities to reach and justify the interests of certain group of people which didn’t represent society’s need. Tragically, with so many internal problems haunting us, we seem to neglect and not paying attention on Globalization and the issues behind it. By still possessing a lack ness to address those severe harms, it is possible that one day it will backstab us and become a threat to the collapse of this nation of Indonesia, like we’ve already learned from what happened in Soviet Union and Czechoslovakia.

The main core of the troubles and threats to Indonesia were because we missed the moral and cultural considerations in the decision making process and the concrete implementations in all sector. The blast of political practice, law enforcement, and efforts to accomplish ideal society with prosperity and democracy, were then filled without this nation’s noble principle of moral and culture.

Based on those considerations we have the courage to establish this organization. Burdened with those noble mandates, we as young people who possess a care ness towards the changing of era, always strive to conduct many analysis and public education, in order to send the spirit of moral and cultural essence to fill and strengthen democracy in our beloved country.

Mastering The Comparative Law


MASTERING THE COMPARATIVE LAW

Starting this month, i’ll study another side of law. Common law system will be my daily study in Delhi University (DU). Even i’m not yet starting my study rite now, but i’ve got a lot of attractive news related ’bout subject of law from television and newspaper. We’re all know, however, Law is very related with politics matters, so it’ll be more interesting if we can mix that academic subjects together. Especially, South Asia Countries have shown their great political movement to rule half of the world.

Please wait my next articles in this Blog!

Pers Kampus dan Pendidikan Hukum


PERS KAMPUS DAN PENDIDIKAN HUKUM

Description:

Dengan melihat perkembangan dan peran pers kampus sepanjang sejarahnya, maka sudah tidak dapat kita pungkiri lagi bahwa pers kampus merupakan suatu sarana bagi pengembangan daya pemikiran dan intelektualitas bagi masyarakat Indonesia. Berbagai tema dan topik yang diangkat sangat kental dan dekat dengan kebutuhan informasi yang diinginkan oleh setiap orang, terlepas dari cara dan etika penulisan yang kurang profesional.

Lalu bagaimanakah dengan peran Pers Kampus itu sendiri dalam pencerahan bagi mahasiswa maupun masyarakat dalam bidang hukum? Penulis menyadari bahwa porsi dan muatan berita-berita pers kampus mengenai topik yang bersinggungan dengan hukum sangat lah sedikit.

Untuk menemukan majalah hukum yang benar-benar dikelola dan dicetak oleh mahasiswanya sendiri sebenarnya telah ada, seperti “Mahkamah” yang dibuat oleh Mahasiswa FH-UGM, namun di kampus Universitas Indonesia yang menjadi parameter mahasiswa nasional justru tidak keliahatan tanda-tanda kelahirannya. Padahal materi-materi hukum mulai dari yang ringan sampai yang berat benar-benar sangat dibutuhkan oleh seluruh elemen bangsa ini, mengingat negara kita adalah negara yang menjunjung tinggi hukum dan keadilan.

Mahasiswa Hukum, mulailah bergerak pada detik ini juga!
