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.)

Why can't our Election Commission be fair?

For a so-called democratic country, self-claimed to be the most democratic in the world, the people's distrust in our Election Commission couldn't be more embarrassing. Besides pointing out all kinds of 'mistakes' in our electoral roll, there are all kinds of advisories on how to detect frauds at the polling centres! It is surprising how insensitive our Election Commissioners are to the endless exposes, while playing dumb to the daily campaigning by BN leaders when carrying out their official duties as PM, DPM and Ministers; when they were seen on national television channels, dishing out monies to all and sundry (under different guises like BR1M, BL1M, etc.), and reminding the recipients to be grateful for what were given.

Malaysiakini's sticker below is an example of fair voter education because it advises people to 'read Malaysiakini before you cast your vote'. You may or may not agree with what is being published, there is no indication as to which party you should vote...



However, the following text messages sent out to people is an example of blatant abuse of the distribution of government funds to the people, with a reminder to recipients to return the favour by voting Barisan Nasional in GE 13 (PRU 13)...
