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.)

Perhaps Nazir can be a better PM than his brother

“Remembering my father, Tun Razak” written by Datuk Seri Nasir Razak, his youngest son and present CEO of CIMB group.

Datuk Nasir wrote that his father in rejecting his and his siblings’ request for the building of a swimming pool had thundered “What will the people think?”

Nasir Razak has also touched on the New Economic Policy introduced by his late father.

Nasir must be commended for his honest and forthright views when he wrote:

"The debate on the NEP rages on today. I myself have publicly remarked that something has gone awry in its implementation.

The fixation on the quotas and the seemingly easy route to unimaginable wealth for a select few has created an intra-ethnic divide in class and status, while fuelling inter-ethnic tensions.

Both these developments serve to undermine, if not completely negate, the over-arching goal of Tun Razak’s NEP – strengthening national unity."

In contrast, Najib thinks his wife's use of a government jet to travel is well deserved! He had just made himself a laughing stock by using 'kang kung' as an analogy to people's complaints about price hikes.
