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

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.)

Kim Quek: THE GREAT SELLOUT: Malaysia’s darkest day for justice & democracy


'Chief Justice Arifin Zakaria’s judgment upholding Anwar Ibrahim’s sodomy conviction is not only full of holes, it has set a dangerous legal precedent whereby innocent persons may be wrongly convicted for sexual crimes that they have not committed.

Despite complainant Saiful Bukhari Azlan’s evidence being flawed by inconsistencies and falsehood, Arifin Zakaria is adamant that Saiful’s testimonies are reliable, for which no corroboration is necessary.

How did Arifin come to have such unshakable confidence in Saiful? Arifin attributed his faith in Saiful to two factors: Saiful was able to give "minute details", and he had stuck to his testimony despite a thorough cross-examination.

But such legal rationale does not seem to hold water. This is because anyone with a reasonable acting ability and memory would be able to do what Saiful had done, if given proper coaching and rehearsals by someone experienced in such sexual activities. And lo and behold, such an actor would then practically be able to get anybody in trouble for a concocted sexual offence under Malaysian law, if corroborative evidence is waived. And that effectively is what the current Federal Court ruling will lead to.'
