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.)

Haris Ibrahim's take on Dyana


'If this young lady means every word she says, if her words reflect her soul, then she might just be the best thing to come our way since Nurul.

“Equal opportunity to all deserving Malaysians does not mean that the Malays will be robbed. It means that more deserving Malaysians of all races, including many Malays, who do not support Umno, will have access to quality higher education. Umno has lost sight of our future and is more concerned with stoking ethnic sentiments in order to shore up its support base. A public institution, more so a public institution of higher learning should never be placed at the mercy of a political party. UiTM belongs to the people, not just Umno,” – Dyana, as reported by the Malaysianinsider.'

But as usual, such a 'revolutionary' idea will be resisted by those who support Umno's narrow objectives. It takes time for brave individuals to go against the flow.

She was called DAP's puppet or tool; a traitor to Malay race; her mother was threatened with expulsion from Umno; her face was digitally fixed on to a bikini-clad body; she was even shown 'standing next to Ibrahim Ali' in a group photo! Even if the photo had not been doctored, the malicious intent was clear in timing, as admitted by Ibrahim Ali himself.

Update:

'The mother of Teluk Intan DAP candidate Dyana Sofya Mohd Daud today responded to former Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad who had suggested that she had not done enough to impress on her daughter of Umno’s struggle for the country and the Malay race.

"I tried to raise her like Mukhriz, but she ended up like Marina. I give all my children the freedom to choose what is right and wrong. Dyana is old enough to think about this,” she told The Malaysian Insider today.'
