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.)

Najib is an asset or liability?

Judge for yourself...

Years ago, before we have the internet, any response if any, would have been slow and most probably nobody would bother doing anything about it. But reading the following news report shows the power and impact of the new medium of communication...

"After being the target of brickbats from the Internet community, popular isotonic drink 100Plus scrambled to clarify that Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak's image on its can was not aimed at promoting the leader.
Many netizens saw this unusual clarification as a damage control move to escape a boycott by Najib's critics as the country's political competition gets stiffer with the looming general election.
The clarification was published on Wednesday on the Facebook webpage of Malaysia 100Plus.
"Hi everyone. We'd like to clarify that the pictures of our Prime Minister, Dato' Sri Najib Razak appearing on our can is a sticker that was printed for him when he visited our booth at the Hari Belia event in Putrajaya recently.
"Besides our PM, specialised and individualised stickers were printed for all who visited our booth. We'd like to thank all Malaysians for your continuous support," read the statement..."
