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.)

Why are our officials prone to self-praise?

Just recently, our DPM, who is also our Education Minister claimed that our educational system is better than US, UK and Germany. Then our MACC Deputy claimed that his agency is 'best among the best'. Now it is our Election Commission chief's turn to claim that the electoral roll is the cleanest in the world!

With no shortage of complaints against the EC, its chief seems to live in a world of his own, oblivious of the mounting complaints and criticisms hurled at the EC under his watch. If only we could have automatic voter registration and proper control of registration of births and deaths, then the question of phantom voters would become irrelevant.

Malaysia must be one of few countries where its leaders will never resign on their own despite failures due to their own poor leadership, and will have no qualms self-praising their own ministry or department.

Why? Income Tax officers claimed credit for the increased corporate and income tax collected. Now they are getting 5 month bonus and a whopping 30 % pay increase. The squeaky wheel gets the oil.
