I would rather not go into detail about my country's government in case I'll be arrested under ISA (Internal Security Act) But I really want to know what people think. First of, the majority race is favor over the minority and they have more privileges as well. And they certainly forbid the races from the minority to become the Prime Minister. You cannot question or even give a friendly suggestion on how the government,the sultan and the king spend the citizens hard earned money accumulate through taxes or you'll be charge under Seditious Act (It happen to a member of the opposition party)

You have not mentioned which country you belong to.I am from India,the largest democracy in the world.And here it is just the other way round.The majority is neglected and the minority- citizens belonging to a particular religion- is pampered.The government says ours is a secular country,but in fact,it is not so.A truly secular country looks all religions with the same eye.Here it's not so.Our leaders are dwarfs.They pamper minority only to garner votes,but do nothing for their real welfare.They are indulged in scams.As soon as they join a party and get elected,their wealth gets multiplied multiple times.They make money by illegal means.And unfortunately no leader has ever got punished.

Malaysia is my country. But let's hope they don't persecute me for writing this post. A simple comment about the government can spark anger even though it's harmless.

Have I mentioned that my uncle is an Indian? So you're right. Indians are my friends. I have a few Indian friends as well. What do? The leaders like to do this then we just bend over and let them kick us if we disobey.

I live in a democratic country and I feel sorry that there are countries out there that people aren't allowed to speak their thoughts and opinions. In fact, I only see that happen during the ancient times, and in movies. I would be miserable if I live in such place and time. In my country, you can say pretty much anything. You can voiced out your opinion on president's leadership skills and even about his love life. I heard some countries can't say negative things about their leader. Also, being born in a poor family or not being able to achieve high degree of education is not a reason for you to gain government position. The problem with our government nowadays is corruption. People no longer know who should they trust.

My country is a democratic country. Or rather claim to be. But we still don't have the freedom to voice our negative opinions about the government. Not even through the internet.

I see, I thought that if you live in a democratic country then you are free to say your opinions. I am kinda confused on how the media is going on your country. Are they also not allowed to voice out negative opinions? I am sad to know that kind of situation still exist at present world. I really thought that it could only happen to communist countries. Is your country a member of the ASEAN? Anyways, I do hope that your posting here would not do any harm to you and I don't really see anything wrong with it.

Wow.. An amazingly short one line comment that won't reward you with any earnings. I stated I'm from Malaysia. And I'm not attacking you or anything. It's just surprising to see a one line response on a site that earns you money for quality posting.

So my guess is that you will be voting for the opposition party in the coming election.

Both the circumstances happen throughout the world. Yes the majority seems to support minority always and give them more privilges but when they are asked for power, majority race would be thinking for it. It is the 'ego' which stands in the middle to make them in power. And no person has the right to loot or spend our hard earned money. But what is happening in the world is just opposite. No one is honesty in their work.

I don't know what country you are coming from, and you might be afraid that you will be arrested if you daringly discuss such sensitive topic over the internet. All I can say is that many political won't allow social networking, and won't allow people freely to discuss anything related to politics. That is wrong, and people should have the freedom to speech, and talk about it. That is how to make our lives better. Shouldn't the government exist to protect people instead of persecute them?
