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.)

Confirmed: It is going to be YAB Azmin Ali, the new MB of Selangor... Congratulations!

Without royal approval, plan A has to give way to plan B, with PKR retaining the MB post which is most important under the circumstances...

Azmin to become MB, unanimous PKR endorsement

Wan Azizah accepts Azmin’s appointment as MB

We are somewhere between constitution and sedition. Despite the royal snub, Dr Wan Azizah has been most gracious in accepting Azmin's appointment to save the situation. At least, the position remains with PKR. PKR and DAP made their point, so did HRH. To continue confrontation would lead to another costly state wide elections which might further aggravate the situation. Even if PKR and DAP could win majority again it is not going to change HRH's stance. I am sure the people would understand and appreciate Dr Wan Azizah's magnanimity more. Sometimes, it is better to be kind than right. Congratulations to soon to be YAB Azmin Ali!
