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

Reactions to RoS's unfair actions become racially sensitive?

What would you do if you had been unfairly treated? It is common in Malaysia to find policies which are based on race, with blatant racial discrimination. It is no use saying one thing and practise another: 1Malaysia; all are treated equally, no one is being left out; special provisions for one race will not affect other races; and so on.

Yet, whenever anyone questioned such policies (which invariably would touch on race) he becomes a racist! Therefore, many non-Malays have unwittingly become enforced racists because they react to racialist government policies.

See what New Sunday Times highlighted, based on just one PKR member's comment...

Update:
Excerpt from The Malaysian Insider: Of running dogs, misunderstanding and proving the phrase

"The police need to act on the crime and security of the country, not on people who have a better understanding of the English language.

Or is that a crime too?

The real crime is acting with alacrity on the matter and proving how true it is for Pua to use that phrase against the authorities and the Umno-owned Utusan Malaysia. - October 7, 2013."

The PKR guy who criticized LGE should ask the Auditor-General to resign for producing so many reports against the Malays civil servants!
