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.)

Is this how the Chinese control the economy?



























This Lat cartoon appeared in NST published on April 30, 1997.

Recently, MACC issued a statement that the Chinese need to be educated on corruption, which implies that only the Chinese are corrupted. Not sure whether the problem lies in the offers (difficult to refuse?) or the persons in charge are open to persuasion which led to the offers.

Update:
What a coincidence! LAT's cartoon was inspired by the resignation of Tan Sri Muhammed Muhammed Taib as MB of Selangor, paving the way for Tan Sri Abu Hassan Omar to stand for a state seat, and who later succeeded him as MB. This precedence had been quoted to counter those who criticised PKR for allowing Kajang state assemblyman, Lee Chin Cheh to resign in order to allow Anwar Ibrahim to stand, and hopefully, enable him to become the next MB of Selangor.
