How should we judge a government?
"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
In Malaysia, if you don't watch television or read newspapers, you are uninformed; but if you do, you are misinformed!
"Our government is like a baby's alimentary canal, with a happy appetite at one end and no responsibility at the other. " - Ronald Reagan
Was he referring to Malaysia? Seems so apt...
