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.)

Swiss-Court JMB's inflexible system of internal control

Apartment owners are likely to be living away from the resort. Therefore, when making periodic payments, they are required to bank in their cheques and fax copy of bank-in slips to their management in Damai Laut as proof of payment. This is a requirement by their Head Office in KL.

Yesterday, I had problems (paper jamming) with my fax machine. I called up the person on duty at Damai Laut, asking if it was alright if I were to provide information of the date and amount of payment relating to our unit. I explained that since it was proof they wanted (photocopy of bank-in slip), the fact that their bank receipts would include my payment (without details but which I was willing to provide), why is there a need for further proof? If ever there is a dispute, then I can easily provide the copy of the bank-in slip. But she was afraid it would not be acceptable to Head Office! The most important aspect in this case is payment, which I am sure the cheque would be honoured, what then is the fuss about copy of bank-in slip just to meet some internal system requirement? Isn't there any room for the use of discretion anymore?
