On Nazir Razak Advise to Ignore Noisy Extremists

No, we the Rakyat are not supposed to ignore the opportunistic extremists' noisy and shameless display of lawlessness while the reasonable and sincere concerned appeals of so many good men and women are being persecuted by the Government of the day.

This is dangerous, this is how Germany fell to the Nazi, Pakistan to the military, Burma to the Junta, Afgan to the Taliban and the list goes on and on.

When the Government of the day is unable to act rationally for the benefits of our whole country, we, the Rakyat must think and act, each according to individual ability and sphere of influence. Most importantly, vote wisely in the next GE.

Quotes of Thomas Jefferson found in MT Comment Section

From a learned commetator in MT:-

"Timid men prefer the calm of despotism to the tempestuous sea of liberty."
- Thomas Jefferson

"Sometimes it is said that man cannot be trusted with the government of himself. Can he, then be trusted with the government of others?

Or have we found angels in the form of kings to govern him? Let history answer this question."
- Thomas Jefferson

"Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others.

I do not add "within the limits of the law" because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual."

- Thomas Jefferson
