    Thought control - book banning

    Ever wonder why we have one of the most bloated bureaucracy in the world?

    Our dear leaders are very concerned for our mental health. Therefore, they try to screen harmful material from us before we get to read it, hear it or see it. They even tell us how we should think, what we can do, who we should associate with. This is an arduous and thankless task for which lots of people are needed.

    But sometimes, inadvertently, some books slip through their grubby fingers then we need to have the officers going personally to the book stores to confiscate the offending books. This is very important as the minds of Malaysians are very fragile and liable to explode upon contact with seditious material.

    One cannot ask for more caring leaders than this. We are probably aspiring to Burma or North Korea's standards.

    Book review? Sorry, couldn't find the book. Its been a long time.
    Could have sold it to the 2nd Handbook shop already.
    Remember it was about the Kris waving incident.
    I am not too keen on reading historical and technical stuff.
    Too dry!

    I guess now everybody will be searching for this 'banned' book or other books by Farish Noor.
    Humm...make me wonder whether Farish Noor's publisher need to pay those 'guys' any bribe err...commission...LOL
