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

What do you make of this censorship in Facebook?


Chin-Huat Wong via Jacqueline Ann Surin
Groups — whether NGOs or political parties — deemed unfriendly to the federal ruling parties are often denied registration. If Suaram should be on trial for using a roundabout way to register itself with the state, then the ROS and their political master, the home minister, should be in the dock for insulting the Federal Constitution and betraying citizens.

Yes, Suaram should certainly not enjoy any special discrimination. Exactly because of that, NGOs promoting human rights should enjoy as much freedom of association as those groups opposing human rights. Is that too much to ask of our prime minister, Najib the Moderate

My comment which wasn't accepted:


"The unfair discrimination and selective persecution of unfriendly NGOs as compared with favouritism when dealing with friendly ones are as obvious as thumbing their noses at us with a 'so what?' Reports by favoured ones were swiftly attended to by the authorities . I think they are trying to wear us down with their persistence. It can be both boring and tiring just mentioning their same old same old antics."

When I tried again:

Facebook:
Don't have permission
You don't have sufficient permissions to do that.

What I wish to know is whose permission was it referring to in this case? FB, TheNutgraph or Chin-Huat Wong? Anything to do with the new Act which presumes one guilty unless proven otherwise?
