How should we judge a government?

In Malaysia, if you don't watch television or read newspapers, you are uninformed; but if you do, you are misinformed!

"If you're not careful, the newspapers will have you hating the people who are being oppressed, and loving the people who are doing the oppressing." - Malcolm X

Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience - Mark Twain

Never argue with an idiot, otherwise people won't know which one of you is the idiot.
Since light travels faster than sound, some people appears bright - until you hear them speak.

Why we should be against censorship in a court of law: Publicity is the very soul of justice … it keeps the judge himself, while trying, under trial. - Jeremy Bentham

"Our government is like a baby's alimentary canal, with a happy appetite at one end and no
responsibility at the other. " - Ronald Reagan

1Care on health is scary by its stealth to create wealth...

for some politicians and well connected cronies.

How many of us are aware that if 1Care is considered a done deal, all employees will be burdened with a new deduction from their paychecks whether they are healthy or ill? Can you imagine being forced to pay for medical bill each month even if you are perfectly healthy? I think this is the worst form of encroachment on a person's freedom of choice. There are many people who would not see a doctor if they can help it. It is not up to us to decide for them, definitely not up to the government. What we will be getting for 1Care is likely to be something similar to NHS in UK where the main complaints are compulsory deductions, no choice of doctor and so on. We can say goodbye to what we are enjoying now: go private if you can afford it and for fast service (this is not always true), or if you have the time, go to the GH to save money.
