Pancasila as Indonesia’s state ideology and the nation’s basic philosophy is dynamic in nature and full of ideas---to say it is not a static frame of thinking as it was based on Indonesia’s genuine values and characters.
“We need to keep on exercising all those values as they live overtime,” said People’s Consultative Assembly (MPR) chairman Dr. Zulkifli Hasan when addressing the seminar on Pancasila entitling “ National Leadership in the Perspective of Pancasila” at Mercu Buana University (UMB) in Jakarta on Friday ( 9/6/2017).
Reinventing the values of Pancasila has to be a shared responsibility between all elements, he said. As such, universities have to live up abundant values of Pancasila. This way Pancasila can be a living guidance for day to day living practice. In turn, our comprehension about Pancasila will also improve the result of which will manifest in the implementation of Pancasila which no other than the manifestation of Indonesia’s basic values and genuine characters.
Rector of UMB Dr. Arrisetyanto Nugroho believes such values can be dragged out from seminars and discussions as they can serve to enhance and deepen our understanding about Pancasila. Such true comprehension can be further implanted in government’s programs and policies so that all the programs and policies were based on the values of Pancasila. **
