You may want to add this …

Westerners … will publicly protest/demonstrate, often in the nude, against any issue
they deem neccesary, be it political, social and anything in between, and
are prepared to be arrested.

Easterners (M’sians) …only dare to do likewise by punching the keyboard, and even that mostly
under an anonymous name.
