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 appear 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.)

May P.I. Balasubramaniam rest in peace

We knew Bala had taken great risks in his first Statutory Declaration. We knew he had to make a second SD, against his will, which was supposed to supersede the first.

He was back in Malaysia recently, and claimed that he was made to withdraw his first SD and replaced it with the second SD. Lawyer Americk Sidhu had just given a credible account of how he helped Bala in drafting SD1...

Before his untimely and unfortunate death, Bala started on a series of  roadshows, in his attempt to explain his past actions and to give credibility to his first SD. We knew he had blocked arteries and the roadshow must have taken a toll on his health. We knew of his wish before he died, and the least we can do is to help in spreading his word, so that he did not die in vain.

Antares:
'Uploaded 12 March 2013, three days before Bala died of an apparent heart attack at his home in Rawang. As a gesture of respect for the man's courage in confronting power with truth, I reproduce below his sensational statutory declaration of 3 July 2008...'
