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

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.)

To err is only human

"If I wanted to steal, it wouldn't make sense that I would place that money in accounts in Malaysia" says PM Najib.

It would make sense if it was such a large amount, cannot be entrusted to someone else, and the money needed to be distributed easily, like just before a GE.

It would also make sense if he was careless because of his immense power as PM and Finance Minister, and was under the impression he was above the law.

According to Zaid Ibrahim:

'Corruption and abuse of power are unacceptable under any circumstances and using public funds for political use and for securing one’s leadership in a political party are criminal acts that must be punished. But Najib’s UMNO and Cabinet colleagues should not pretend they don’t know about how 1MDB money helped them to win in the last General Election. Why do you think Najib had frequent closed-door briefings with UMNO leaders on 1MDB?

They cannot feign surprise that Najib had so much cash, not when they gleefully accept his largesse from time to time without asking any questions. They have kissed his hands and failed to express any unhappiness with his generosity. There were no cries about wanting to find out where this money came from. But suddenly, they want him removed because he was “caught”— not for any other reason.'
