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 appear 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.)

This ice-cream seller is cool

"...I am - in today's parlance - a 3rd generation pendatang. Lets call it GENPENTIGA - Generasi Pendatang Tiga. I suppose it can't be that bad when a GENPENDUA became PM for 22 years. But then he metamorphosed into a Malay and cut his Indian roots - only to go back to Kerala recently to see if there were any offshoots, I suppose, or perhaps some trait of mortality dictated that he visit his roots in his autumn days.

I look at my children GENPEMPAT - Generasi Pendatang Empat and wonder what place they have left under our sun. Should I leave them in the water where they are comfortable or kick them out of their 'comfort water'? Old frogs like me might as well die in the Malaysian water anyway - we are fast reaching our 'sell by' date.

I would like to share, if I may, some developments and events that have brought me to this juncture and by doing so, hope that the GENPEMPAT open their eyes wider and see beyond what meets the eye. These are in no order of priority - but illustrate the point to me nonetheless..."
