The Indonesian nation should be grateful that after passing through a long struggle for independence and the sacrifice of body and soul, thus successfully proclaimed its independence on August 17, 1945 and established the Republic of Indonesia. By the founding fathers established a strong base menegara life, an ideal state as mandated in the Preamble to the Constitution of 1945, called Pancasila. Pancasila, which by Bung Karno, exhumed from the Indonesian people themselves and the culture is more superior when compared with the United States Declaration of Independence nor the Communist Party Manifesto, because in addition to a principle of social justice also has a principle of Belief in God Almighty. Pancasila has become a national consensus as the state in the nation in the history of the Republic of Indonesia and has also made various efforts to implement them in real life in all aspects of community life of nation and state.
During the government of President Sukarno organized the operation of Pancasila indoctrination by preparing a material known as "The Seven Basic Materials indoctrination.". During the administration of President Soeharto held "Upgrading P-4" for all the people of Indonesia in the hope of every citizen can understand the rights and obligations as well as how to behave and act in the life of society, nation and state. Meanwhile a good education through primary, secondary and higher education organized by curriculum contains material to enhance the ability of learners in life menegara based on Pancasila. But all these efforts seem to have not been able to deliver results as expected. It may be caused due to the methods and materials that are less precise, difficulties providing trainers / educators who are professional, and even because of the difficulties that befall the nation, both in the social, political, economic, and security. These circumstances lead to a pessimistic group and even cynicism towards business make Pancasila as a reference in the life of society, nation and state. Although it does not rule out the possibility that the group actually has a hidden purpose, others want a basic state for the nation of Indonesia, which is purely sectarian pure nature or otherwise of certain nonsektarian. They are classified in this group seems to be stuck by a narrow moment of thought or even by irrational emotional impulse, thus denying the reality of the Indonesian nation itself as a society that is diverse, multicultural and highly pluralistic nation heterogeneity
