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

If you're not going to speak up, how is the world supposed to know you exist? “Orang boleh pandai setinggi langit, tapi selama ia tidak menulis, ia akan hilang di dalam masyarakat dan dari sejarah.” - Ananta Prameodya Toer (Your intellect may soar to the sky but if you do not write, you will be lost from society and to history.)

Anachronistic and feeling out of place too

An Arab enters a taxi...

Once he is seated he asks the cab driver to turn off the radio because he must not hear music as decreed by his religion and, in the time of the prophet, there was no music, especially Western music, which is music of the infidels and certainly no radio ...

So the cab driver politely switches off the radio, stops the cab and opens the back door.

The Arab asks him: “What are you doing man?”

The cabby answers: “In the time of the prophet there were no taxis. So get out and wait for a camel.”

Meanwhile...

Little Mohamed entered his classroom in France.

What is your name? asked the teacher.

Mohammad.... answered the kid.

Here we are in France, there is no Mohamed. From now on your name will be Jean-Francois, replied the teacher.

In the evening, Mohamed returned home.

How was your day, Mohamed? asked his mother.

My name is not Mohamed, I am in France and my name is Jean-Francois.

Ah, are you ashamed of your name, are you trying to disown your parents, your heritage, your religion? Shame on you... and she beat him. Then she called the father and he too beat him savagely.

The next day Mohamed returned to school.

When the teacher saw him with all the bruises she asked:
What happened my little Jean-Francois?

Well Miss, just two hours after becoming French, I was attacked by two Arabs!
