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

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

Government fed by the people

Of suffering from FOMO, skiving at work, use of Boss Key

"Do you know FOMO? That’s not some fancy latte — it’s Fear Of Missing Out, and something that’s become a recognized thing by many social media users these days.
You’re probably familiar with the concept, if not the name. Here’s an example: It’s been a long workweek and you really just want to spend Friday night at home watching a movie. But then that old familiar urge hits, and you can’t resist grabbing your smartphone for a jolty fix of quick-burst information. One friend’s Twitter post mentions an awesome concert. On Facebook, someone else put up photos of a raging house party.
Suddenly, your mellow evening feels entirely inadequate and you wonder what else you’re missing out on. You put the phone down, only to pick it up again and again because you can’t shake the feeling that you’re missing out on finding out just how much you’re missing out on. The vicious cycle continues.
But don’t get too down — you’re not alone with your FOMO. There are other people out there just like you, and they’ve gone public with their problem..."
Do you suffer from social media FOMO?

Skiving and pretending to be working...

Help is at hand with the use of a boss key:

A boss key is a simple keyboard shortcut, often a single key such as F10 or ScrLk, included in some applications or existing as a separate helper application altogether, that allows the user to rapidly conceal or exit a program that is not work appropriate.
While many modern applications–usually games or other typically unproductive applications–come with a custom boss key, prior to the 1980s the practice was virtually unknown. Some of the first programs to include a boss key were the games of Friendlyware, an early 1980s game company. While in their games users could press the F10 key to swap out the game interface with a generic spreadsheet and graph interface.
Since then, the boss key has evolved and now computers can be configured to switch to a legitimate application, minimize and lock the offending application, flip to an alternate desktop, and perform other more sophisticated tasks. It’s even possible to purchase a peripheral foot pedal so the triggering of the boss key can be concealed under the desk without any tell-tale leap to the keyboard to initiate the sequence.
