This year opens with a bang by a lecture on Listen, by Sharifah Zohra Jabeen, which could be heard by millions in Malaysia and elsewhere in the world. It caught on the imagination of Malaysians (almost a la Gangnam style) and became viral in cyberworld. Sharifah is now a household name. Inevitably, Namewee (of Negara kuku fame), latches on and gives it his version, and the least you can do is, listen when he speaks, ok?
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
