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

Government fed by the people

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 open invitation for a debate with Khairy on 'Special rights' or 'Special position'

Debate : Special rights or special position for Malays under the Constitution? – KJ vs HI?

'Since August, this year, whenever I have had the opportunity to speak and share, especially with Malays, I have made it a point to share two points that I feel Malays really need to hear and give thought to.
First, that this whole business of ‘ketuanan Melayu’ violently conflicts with the final sermon of the Holy Prophet (pbuh) at Arafat.
There is, in my view, therefore, no room in Islam for any race supremacist notions.
Second, that there is nothing in the Federal Constitution that supports this perennial claim by Perkasa, Isma and the likes to there being special rights thereunder for the Malays.
Special position, under Article 153, yes, but not special rights.
But this special position is not just of the Malays, but also of the indigenous of Sabah and Sarawak.
Article 153  does not stop there.
It also speaks of the legitimate interests of the other communities.
All of which is placed under the watch of the Agung to safeguard.'

'Special rights or special position?
If we both agree that it is only the latter, we all have tea and go home.
If, however, we differ, then we get it on, as we did in 2010, in the most cordial, friendly and civil fashion.
KJ, you game?
Your choice of moderator, KJ.
Even your new found friend, Dr M, if you wish.
If you people would like to see this happen, tweet KJ or message him on Facebook and let him know this invitation is floating in cyberspace, awaiting his acceptance.'
