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.)

Churchill's retort to George Bernard's insult


Once, a famous dramatist George Bernard's play was being staged. He invited Sir Winston Churchill to watch the play. As a matter of courtesy, he sent in a cover with a note saying, "One ticket for you and the second one for your friend, if at all you have one friend indeed!"

Churchill sent him a rejoinder stating, "Due to pressing engagements, I will not be able to attend the show. Hence, please excuse me. If you send tickets for the second show of your play then I will surely come, if it ever runs for the second time!"
