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

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.)

Thought provoking

On need to communicate...
A lot of trouble would disappear,
If only people would learn to talk to one another,
Instead of talking about one another.

Life isn't always fair...
Expecting the world to treat you fairly because you are a good person, is like expecting the lion not to attack you because you are a vegetarian.

Using modern technologies as analogies...
People nowadays are like Bluetooth,
If you stay close they stay connected,
If you go away they find new devices.

Human life would be perfect if:
Anger had a STOP button;
Mistakes had a REWIND button;
Hard Times had a FORWARD button;
And Good Times a PAUSE button !!

Why we need to cool it...
Reflection cannot be seen in boiling water;
In the same way, Truth cannot be seen in a state of anger!

On Selflessness...
The bird asked the Bumblebee:
"You work so hard to make the honey, and humans just take it away. Doesn't it make you feel bad?"
"No," said the Bee, "Because they will never take from me the art of making it."

Let's face it...
