Social Experiments Amid the Complex Indonesian Political Feel

It is undeniable that the atmosphere leading up to the election like today is getting hotter and hotter. Indonesian society seems to be divided into two camps, one is Jokowi’s camp, the other is Prabowo’s camp. Plus the presence of social media that feels increasingly adds “hot” political nuances in Indonesia. Just because it’s invisible, people don’t hesitate to mock one another, insult, and knock each other down.

The tension is even more depressing, not limited to gimmick or confession in cyberspace. Many people have to lose friends or family. And fight just because of different political choices. Not too long ago there was news that the body had to be moved. Only because the owner of the tomb had a different political choice!

A Group of Students Making Social Experiment Video

In the midst of the complicated nuances of politics in Indonesia at this time. A group of MA Al-Muddatsiriyah students, Jakarta, made a social experiment that made the heart cool. What was their viral experiment like?

A group of students who are members of the MA Al-Muddatsiriyah journalism is making a video of social experiments. Related to differences in political choices which are currently hot and hot

Students at MA Al-Muddatsiriyah (MA MDSR) created a social experiment video titled “My Handshake If Our Political Choices Are Different”. In the 10-minute video, 3 students stand on the pedestrian bridge, each carrying a board with different writing. One of the writings: “I support candidate pair 01, but if you support candidate pair 02 please shake my hand”. Another opposite and the board in the middle contains the signatures of those who shake their hands.

Their video conducting a social experiment caught the attention of citizens. And apparently unexpectedly, many also shook their hands.

Behind the barbaric attitude of people when it comes to political choices. Apparently there are still many who long for peace on this motherland. As evidenced by the many people who shake the hands of the students.

At the beginning of the video, there was indeed no one who was willing to shake hands. Maybe at the thought “what are these boys doing?”, And they just walked away. But after there was 1 person who started, the others became follow-up. This video is viral and widely discussed in cyberspace.

What did We get From Thos Video?

Yes because after all, we are standing on the same ground, struggling amid the same problems. So, what is the point of being hostile just because of different political choices??

Apart from the fact that there were no advantages. Splitting up so that some camps actually made us as a nation look weak in the eyes of the world. Fear that such a situation will, in fact, be exploited by other countries for personal gain. Instead, we must remain compact and united. Whatever the situation and however diverse we are. Do not just because of different political choices. We become like sparking conflict. It is even sadder if the families fight because of the different choices. Even before the election chaos. They just got along well together.

Guys, different choices are not your sin. Want to choose 01 or 02 is fine. Of course, each of you has your own considerations. No need to look for other people’s choice of loopholes. Whoever the leader is, let us pray together so that Indonesia can become better in the future. ‘If Indonesia is more prosperous and victorious. We are also the ones who feel it.
