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

Government fed by the people

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.)

C T Ali on 'How does a cop lose a car?

Excerpt:

"Just imagine this conversation between patrolman Aziz whose car got stolen and his colleague Mat at the Sentul police station.

Aziz: Allo…Balai Polis Sentul (BPS)?
BPS: Selamat Petang tuan Balai Polis Sentul di sini!
Aziz: Mat itu engkau ka? Ni Ajis lah.
BPS: Ahhh Ajis…ni Mat ni.
Aziz: Mat kereta aku kena curi lah!
BPS: (after looking out in the courtyard and seeing Ajis’s Kancil still park there!)…kereta kau masih ada kat sini lah!
Aziz: Bukan kereta aku….kereta Peronda lah!
BPS: Masallah!
His problem starts from there! His colleagues at the station will be laughing their heads off at what has happened.
The guys who stole the car will also be laughing their heads off, too, at what they have done and only Aziz is the miserable one.
Now if the police cannot find the 29 cars that were stolen how can we expect them to find the ones reported by the public? Does that thought not worry you?"
