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.)

Hardup KTM Batu Gajah railway station makes cheapskates of some of us.

After introducing parking charges which system was ineffective, now KTM BG set up controlled entry and exit booths which effectively ensure a minimum charge of Rm1 upon entry, more if it exceeds an hour, based on hourly rates.

This morning, I could see many cars parked along the roadsides outside its compound. These vehicles were parked there to avoid the charges, especially if the people were there just to buy tickets, send off or pick up someone.

My son commented that even KL Sentral allows free entry and exit for such purposes. They even allow cars to wait at specific bays so long as the drivers are in them. It is inconceivable that KTM BG has to resort to this just to increase some revenue when their losses were actually due to 'inefficiencies' at the top national level.
