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

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

How could Umno claim to have anything in common with Mandela's struggle?

When Mandela fought against minority white apartheid in South Africa, many Malaysians wondered about the hypocrisy in Dr Mahathir's support for him. Now, PM Najib is claiming Umno's struggle is similar to Mandela's!

Umno had been, and still is, in control in Malaysia since Independence in 1957. What was Umno's struggle since independence? Against itself? The struggle, if any, is being felt by the people against the new colonial power in Umno, which practises discrimination by race, religion and political affiliation. The minority in Umnoputras are lording over the rest of the population.

Najib asked, 'Where would the Malays be without Umno? The answer by general consensus seems to be 'Better off'!' In fact, many asked instead, 'Where would Umno be without the Malays?'


How Dare Najib Discredit Mandela
By Kee Thuan Chye | Bull Bashing – Sun, Dec 8, 2013


"Umno President Najib Razak diminished the stature of a great man when he said last Saturday at his party’s general assembly that Umno fought for the “same cause” as Nelson Mandela, who had died two days before.
What same cause? Mandela fought against racial discrimination whereas Umno institutionalised racial discrimination a few decades ago and still upholds it.
Mandela never advocated black supremacy, whereas Umno promotes Ketuanan Melayu (Malay supremacy).
After he became president of South Africa, Mandela proposed reconciliation and sought to bring the races in his country together, whereas in Malaysia, Umno divides the races in order to keep itself in power."
