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

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.)

Zaid shoots down Zahid's 'Shoot first' policy

The Malay Mail : Zaid: Malaysia en route to failed state with ‘shoot first’ approach 

Excerpt:

"Malaysia risks becoming a “failed state” if the police takes a “shoot first” policy in dealing with criminal suspects, former minister Datuk Zaid Ibrahim said today as he called for Home Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi who advocated the approach to be replaced.

Zaid, who was the de facto law minister during the Abdullah administration, said a “failed state” is where lawlessness prevails, noting that a “shoot first” approach to law enforcement signals that the authorities themselves are the law, and that there is “no need for investigation and public trial”.

“Zahid Hamidi should be replaced immediately if the PM is to salvage anything left of his administration,” Zaid told The Malay Mail Online via email today, referring to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak."
