Pancasila is the basis that contains rules for the community to behave properly and correctly in the country of Indonesia. Ideology itself has a meaning about the human mind or understanding, according to Descrates " ideology is the essence of all human thought .” Pancasila is used as a solid foundation for the establishment of a country in achieving the ideals of the nation. The ideology of a nation, in addition to being solid and strong, must also correspond to the country in which it is carried out. The idea in it should be in accordance with the conditions of its countries.
Pancasila was born on June 1, 1945 marked by a speech made at the BPUPKI session by Indonesia's first president, Soekarno, then ratified on August 18, 1945 by the PPKI. It has been 77 years since the establishment of Pancasila as a state ideology, but is Pancasila still relevant at this time to become a state ideology? Where we are currently in the era of globalization where there are many things that have developed, human thinking has also further developed.
There are many pros and cons regarding whether Pancasila is still relevant to become a state ideology. Therefore, there are always a handful of people who want to lower Pancasila as the state ideology. These contras consider that Pancasila is no longer relevant to become the ideology of the state, there are some precepts that are considered to be deviant. For example, the second precept reads "A just and civilized humanity." In fact, in 2015 there was a case of an old grandmother named Asyani sentenced to 1 year in prison for allegedly stealing 2 trunks of teak trees belonging to perhutani . Hecontinued on the third precept of Pancasila which reads "Unity of Indonesia." However, in reality there are still many cases of clashes between tribes and there are also still many ethnocentrism attitudes in Indonesia.
In addition to the cons, there are also people who are pro and support pancasila as the State Ideology. According to them, Pancasila is considered to have a clear goal and direction to be a guide for the Indonesian people to carry out activities because the values of Pancasila are also no longer in doubt again because it has been carefully thought out and prepared by Indonesian fighters for a long time. Pancasila also contains elements of unity and unity which means that Pancasila can play a role as a binder and unifying nation if it is implemented seriously. Applying Pancasila seriously can start from simple things such as having an attitude of tolerance between tribes and religions, working together, using domestic products, participating in elections and many others.
Then Is Pancasila Still Relevant as the Ideology of the Nation? The answer is still. Because Pancasila is not only an ideology of the nation, but also an agreement that is decided based on the value of the customs of the Indonesian people before it becomes a country where the content of Pancasila itself already includes religion, social, and culture. In addition, Pancasila can also adjust the situation over time and has its own role because each precept in Pancasila is interrelated. Therefore, as the ideology of the nation and the state is enough to say relevant. However, it is unfortunate that the implementation in the community has not fully gone well. Some parties abuse the values of the Pancasila ideology and only think about their own interests. Examples can be taken , namely the rampant corruption cases, the law that is blunt up but sharp to the bottom, and the fight from irresponsible parties.
Therefore, it is hoped that every Indonesian society will be able to maintain and practice the values of Pancasila as the ideology of the nation. We can start by doing and getting used to small but beneficial things for ourselves as well as others, such as respecting differences, tolerance, upholding values humanity, participating in deliberations, and many others.
In conclusion, Pancasila can still be relevant to become a state ideology even today because Pancasila is the ideal state basis for the Indonesian nation, which has many tribal cultural diversity and language. The relevance of pancasila as a state ideology is unquestionable, because Pancasila as a state ideology has proven its ability to maintain the integrity and sovereignty of Indonesia. So, as Indonesian citizens, we must continue to practice pancasila as the basis for the life of society, nation and state.
