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.)

This is our society

Just before nomination day, I don't envy people like Najib (as President of Umno; Chairman of Barisan Nasional, a coalition of 14 parties; ex-PM of Malaysia), and leaders of the three-partner coalition of Pakatan Rakyat, simply because there only 222 parliamentary seats and 505 state seats, but thousands of potential candidates vying to stand for election.

There are clear winnable candidates who have clean and proven track record, stature and popularity among the people. There are hopefuls and wannabees craving for their first attempt, having worked hard and waiting to be discovered by party leaders. There are leaders of different communities who assume the responsibilities of looking after their communal interests. There are turncoats who still think they are able to win like before. There are so many variables of different people with different ambitions and aspirations, some realistic while some are just for publicity (like the old Malay lady for instance).

How can the decision-makers please everyone? Impossible! I have not even mention the critics!

The following cartoon comes to mind, and this is just dealing with one mule and two passengers...
