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.)

'Little Red Dot' basking in White House limelight

Asiaone: 5 best moments from PM Lee's trip to the White House

Why This Matters?
Singapore is the first Southeast Asian country to have a political leader honoured with a US state dinner. It is also the fifth Asian nation after India, China, Japan and South Korea. The dinner shows a strong sign of ties between the two countries.
Much hype has been given to Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong's visit to Washington DC this week.

US President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle welcomed PM Lee and Mrs Lee at the White House on Aug 2, as Singaporeans watched from their homes via Facebook live.
Late that evening, Mr Lee became the first Southeast Asian leader to be honoured with a US state dinner, and only the fifth in Asia after India, China, Japan and South Korea. 

Here are five of the best moments from the event:
1) Obama knows the Singapore lingo
2) Obama and the "little red dot"
3) A techie for a Prime Minister
4) PM Lee takes over The White House Instagram account
5) "Majulah Singapura"
