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.)

Anwar found guilty of sodomy by Court of Appeal

As is widely expected, though no less shocking, the Court of Appeal overturned the High Court's verdict which acquitted Anwar Ibrahim.

Lead prosecutor M. Shafee, appointed specifically for this appeal, must have felt great for winning this important case. How much was due to his prowess is debatable in this politically motivated manoeuvre to scuttle Anwar's plan to become Menteri Besar of Selangor.

When I read Kim Quek's article in Malaysia Chronicle, I was convinced that the High Court judge had made the right decision, and not as put forward by Shafee...

But alas, this is Malaysia, a land of endless possibilities.

I believe the end of Anwar's political life could spark a renewed vigour in Reformasi, and who better to take over than Puteri Reformasi, Nurul Izzah. She has iconic status which is likely to attract wide support cutting across race and religion. If Rafizi or Nurul had to stand for election in Kajang, I believe the voters will ensure a landslide victory for PKR to prove to BN that ultimately, the people are the boss.
