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

Government fed by the people

I suggest government... because nobody has ever been caught.

Dr Kua Kia Soong: Umno-dominated BN source of much woes

"All these years, Umno has dominated the BN coalition, passing laws and implementing policies which are racially divisive and governing the country with scant regard to justice, democracy and human rights.

The racially discriminatory NEP, the oppressive ISA and other draconian laws such as the Sedition Act, the obstacles put in the way of mother tongue education - these are a few examples of BN bad governance.

Throughout BN's 56- year rule, the MCA, MIC and the other BN partners in the coalition have colluded with Umno to enable the BN coalition to maintain its rule for this long.

Thus, every unjust law and constitutional amendment all these years has been passed with the support of the MCA, MIC and other BN parties. Since they have accepted ministers' and deputy ministers' posts, they cannot claim innocence or plead pragmatism..."

Umno froze vernacular education...

Nearly 40 years to recognize UEC! ...

Elected rep must possess principles...


DR KUA KIA SOONG was principal of New Era College from 2000 to 2008.
