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.)

Parody: If Malaysia were ever to host the Olympics

Let’s explore.

Games Organizing Committee
Every Games has a high-powered organizing committee and hundreds of subcommittees.  This is one area that we Malaysians are good at. We have our Jawatankuasas – thousands of them. We are masters at forming Jawatankuasa. If London 2012 had 300 subcommittees, we will have at least 3000. We will have a committee to decide the size of pisang goreng to be served at the opening ceremony. We will have a committee to determine the colour of the hockey umpire’s underwear. We will have a committee to decide whether to invite Israel or not (although we really don’t have a choice here). We will have a committee to determine if beach volleyball is haram or otherwise. Heck, we will even have a committee to decide which other committee to blame in case something goes wrong.

My prediction : We will have 1 main organizing committee, 32 sub-committees, 278 sub-sub committees and 3162 sub-sub-sub committees. It is very likely that the Bangladeshi worker who cleans the committee meeting rooms will make some of the most important decisions...
