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.)

...and they live happily ever after?

They did? Surely nothing can go wrong with a handsome prince with all the riches to spend from. But what if reality sets in months or years later?


More of Dina Goldstein's realities against fairy tales which we had been brought up with...

Coincidentally, I received an email about a real Saudi princess:

'Her father, Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud of Saudi Arabia... and I don't see a burkha.....'

Just one of the photos of Princess Reem Alwaleed bin Talal shaking Arabia...


While Muslims in Malaysia are becoming more Arabic (of the past).

I happened to watch a reality show, 'Ready for love' on Astro and wondered if modern match-making techniques could really help select suitable partners for life. Everybody looked gorgeous and everything seemed in the best conditions and ambience... and I am afraid.... put on. Wait till they live with each other for longer... revealing their true selves!
