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.)

Malaysiakini's report on 'People's Uprising Rally"

shows how peaceful a big rally can be if only the authorities allow it.

The fact that the police took the initiative to be nice by allowing it (especially without the Riot Police) must have encouraged those who would have stayed away to be on the safe side. The people (multi-racial) went to take part at their own expense (unlike BN events) must be worrying to BN leaders.

This morning, a friend commented that the Higher Education Minister discouraged students of higher institutions of learning from taking part in this rally, but encouraged them if and when organized by BN, shows his partiality, which is typical of them. For the 'live' coverage by Malaysiakini...
