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.)

Radiation cannot be seen nor felt, but look at the effects on vegetables in Fukushima






Just imagine the likely effects on humans.

Recently, there were reports about leakages in the storage containers (100 tons) containing radioactive materials and the likely seepage into the ground and eventually, the Pacific Ocean.

In Malaysia, we are considering nuclear power for energy (when Germany is trying to rid of it) and the people are fighting against the Lynas plant which processes rare earth with high radioactivity. The deputy minister made a statement which is typical of an arrogant government: that we don't care about the million signature campaign, we are only concerned with matters in Parliament. It is like saying we have the mandate (despite having minority votes) and we can do what we like as long as it is passed in parliament. If they are so arrogant with minority support, just imagine if they had two-third majority like before!
