Elections will not give any freedom to Singaporeans. As long as they live in fear as they do now, they will continue under the yoke

Ladies and Gentlemen,

The bad news for Singaporeans is this. As along as you continue to live in fear of your government, as you do now, elections will not give you any  freedom. You will continue living under the yoke.

So Singaporeans in the Internet who are writing reams and reams in the hope for freedom through elections, it will never happen with a people like you who are afraid.

No government in the future in Singapore will willingly hand over power to the people. You can only get it if you take it. And since you are too afraid to do it, you will be forever slaves.

Let me remind Singaporeans once again. You are living no better than ignorant slaves under Lee Kuan Yew's son. Lee Kuan Yew's son and his friends in open shameless industrial scale corruption pays himself $3.7 million a year and much more secretly. With state controlled press, you get propaganda, not news. Your viewpoint will only be published if you are one of them. There is no free speech expression or assembly. The courts are Kangaroo courts who can put away any innocent man Lee Kuan Yew's son does not like. In sum total in Singapore you don't live as free men. You are simply a slave to be dealt with any way Lee Kuan Yew's son pleases.

Your cowardly fear under which you live is abundantly clear by your inaction. All you are capable of doing in Singapore is writing in Facebook and the Internet. And the government on their part has been ignoring it for years as they will continue to do. Your Internet criticism has no effect on them whatsoever as they continue to rule over you as your masters and you as slaves.

Today one thing that I know, that Lee Kuan Yew's son knows and worst of all you know is this fact; no matter what the government does to you, you simply do not have the courage to fight back, like the courage of the Englishmen, the Spaniards, the Frenchmen and all the other free men of the world. You lack an essential quality of human nature essential for freedom, basic courage. In essence, you are timid cowards. And as long as the government is aware of this fact, they are in no rush to give you any rights. You will remain as you are. That is common sense.

Even a future government will not give you any rights. Even if Chee Soon Juan of the opposition SDP is to form the new government, I doubt very much he will be in any hurry to hand over all your rights to you. Why, because it is much easier to rule over you if you have no rights and the government has all the power, as is the case now.

In the end timid souls like you don't deserve to live in freedom anyway. After all you are happy the way you are as it is.

I have realized I have wasted my time writing anti Lee blogs. Why? Because I thought that even a timid society such as you would be moved to stand up to the government if pushed to the wall. I now realize I was wrong. You are a people so afraid that you would do nothing even if Lee Kuan Yew's son raped your daughter before your very eyes. You are beyond redemption. I cannot help you. I will not be writing as often anymore, since it is no use at all. I might as well be trying to persuade a brick wall.

Singaporeans willingly live at the total mercy of their rulers. They happily live as slaves.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Singaporeans live entirely at the mercy of their rulers today and for the last 50 years.

They are in effect slaves.

Their destiny can be controlled if necessary at any tine  by their rulers and there is simply nothing they can do about it.

Government critics can be made imaginary criminals, put away and denied a livelihood. This fear is island wide forcing people to keep in line.

This state of affairs is not the fault of their government at all, it is themselves, because they simply cannot muster the courage to demand justice.

No government in the world today would voluntarily restrict their own powers, why should they? David Cameron would be licking his chops if he could get away with the British what the Lees are getting away with the Singaporeans but he can't. He knows the people would break down the door of No 10.

As long as they are incapable of holding their government to account, their government naturally simply do whatever they want, since there is no one to oppose them.

This state of affairs is simply paradise for any government like that of Singapore. Where in the world can they simply do anything they want and still get away with it because you have a totally subjugated, servile population that simply do not have the courage and shout "protest" even if half their kith and kin are skinned  alive before their very eyes.

Surely this has to be paradise for any government. Other than Singapore, countries that enjoy this total choke hold over their people are few. They include Communist China, Cuba and North Korea and you could add Singapore.

The total power they hold over their people in Singapore is because firstly , the entire media is state controlled. Only the rulers have the right to say what you want, not you. If they let you say something in edge ways, it is because it is they who have let you, not because you have any right to state your mind.

Second the Constitution is completely negated. You have no right to speak in public, criticize in public, question authority openly, assemble in public or do any of this because they have all been made illegal.

Unlike in other democracies in the world, Singapore's rulers are not afraid of your ever challenging them because if you do they will arrest you and send you packing. They know this and you know this. This gives them complete free reign to do literally anything they want anytime regardless of whether you like it or not, period.

The police force is totally corrupt as well as are their judiciary who simply do whatever is told of them to destroy this government critic or that with fake criminal charges. In my case, as a practicing lawyer in that island from 1979 to 1991, which I am ashamed of looking back on hindsight, I was repeatedly charged with all sorts of allegedly disciplinary failings and constantly harassed.

The plan of course was to turn me into another obedient subservient unquestioning Singaporean like the others. In this way they can destroy your livelihood anytime simply because, to use Face book language,  you are not their friend.

With a corrupt police force, a corrupt judiciary, no free press and no rights whatsoever, with powers to put you away anytime on imaginary crimes, Singaporeans are totally under the heel of their government, simple as that.

What is disgusting of the Singaporean is that all this did not happen overnight. It happened gradually from about the 60s. Lee Kuan Yew sometime or other devised a diabolical plan that for him to rule he has to control everyone and everything. So it happened gradually.

One day it was the press. Another day it was free speech. Behind the scenes it was the courts. And all this happened before the very eyes of the predominantly yellow skinned ethnic Chinese population of Singapore who simply accepted it wholesale.

By what are Singaporeans different from Frenchmen Englishmen or Americans?

I am sure if given a choice the French President would be licking his chops with glee if he had powers like that in Singapore, why is it not possible to do the same?

It is not because the French government is any better than that of Singapore.

It boils down entirely to this; Frenchmen are not Singaporeans. Frenchmen have balls, self pride and wish to live free and not under any Napoleon or Luis the IV. They are brave men. Singaporeans or the other hand have no balls and they have no courage, they have no self respect and would willingly live under any tyrant if the price is right.

The French are lions, the Singaporeans, predominately ethnic Chinese are no better than mice. That is the big difference.

Democracy is a set of rules equally applicable to the government as well as to the people. The government is required by rules to do certain things and not do certain things. And if they don't it is the people's right to hold the government accountable.

This is why the French government is afraid to deny the rule of law, because it they do, their people would be up in arms and bring them down. This is why you have democracy in France, in Spain, Portugal, England, Belgium, Flanders, Italy, Greece, Sweden, Flanders, the Orkney Isles, in Dublin.

The ones who are supposedly championing freedom in Singapore appear to me no more that disgraceful hypocrites. Lets call them Face book Internet freedom fighters. I say this because that is the only courage they appear to have, the courage behind a computer keyboard, nothing more.

And lets call them Teo Soh Lung and Company. Teo Soh Lung was a woman lawyer in the island who was unjustly jailed and tortured by fake criminal charges and eventually released. She has been denied a career, and is no longer a lawyer. She spends her time day in a day doing one thing alone, writing about how bad the government was and how badly she was treated. She has even written a book about her ordeal.

Granted, all very sad indeed. But can you do nothing else? Can you not organize a protest outside the Prime Ministers office and demand justice? For Heaves Sake can you not do anything else? It appears, unfortunately no. There are many like her, Teo Soh Lung and Company who just do the same thing day in and day out and after a few days, it just become boring.

For Heaves Sake has she ever thought of getting out of the repression and emigrating? Obviously not. Instead of that she wants  to stay behind and just write the same old story. Perhaps in her warped sense of reasoning there is more pride in staying behind and be bullied than to get out and stand up like a human being.

Teo Soh Lung and Company: Gilbert Yeo who writes about his world travels and his self proclaimed charity to the poor; and several others.

All these years I did not realize that Singaporeans of course primarily the ethnic Chinese who form 80% of the population, pallid looking, yellow for lack of sun, weak in bones, body and spirit are not worth bothering as they willingly let their rulers abuse them like sexual perverts you see in porno magazines.

I feel ashamed to stand in the company of cowards like these cowardly computer keyboard freedom fighters of Singapore like Teo Soh Lung and Company of Singapore.

I would be proud to stand shoulder to shoulder with a brave Frenchman, a brave Englishman, a brave Scotsman, a brave Indian, a brave ethic Chinese from Hong Kong, a brave ethnic Chinese from the Tien An men square Beijing, a brave Croat who fought the Germans, a brave Spaniard in Plaza Major Madrid, a brave separatist from Northern Spain, a brave Italiano fighting Mussolini, brave Cubans who fought off both Batista and the Americans like Fidel Castro, and so on and so forth.

Unlike the cowards the Singaporean version of ethnic Chinese who willingly live under the heel of first Lee Kuan Yew, and now his son. It is a disgrace.

You are warned, if you write a criticism or comment, I will promptly delete it if you do this anonymously as is your shameful practice. State your correct name (not some fancy Kevin this or Kevin that like the ethnic Chinese in Singapore do), address and phone number. If you are a coward to even state your identity when you comment, you should not be commenting in the first place.

I will be posting this on Face book to which I am sure your Singapore government trolls will write the nonsense in response for want of any better. I will be occasionally checking on Singapore news entirely out of curiosity but I will not be writing anything about them since you are incapable of doing anything about it anyway.

It took me a long time to realize the futility of the Singaporean public meaning Teo Soh Lung and Company. I thought even Singaporeans will muster some courage if the situation got intolerably worse. I was wrong. Lee Kuan Yew's son could today rape the daughter of an ethic Chinese Singapore citizen before his very eyes and he would still be incapable of doing anything. I will not be signing off as a Singaporean in Exile. I am not a Singaporean. I am only a former Singaporean and today a very proud American who is ashamed of having even been born in an island of cowards like Singapore.

I am disillusioned with Singaporeans. They simply do not want democracy

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I have been blogging with Singapore Dissident since 2006. My hope was with sufficient exposure to the lack of human rights in the island, I could make Singaporeans realize the lives they live under a dictatorship and would take some effort to reclaim their rights which they have lost. It was a forlorn hope. As the saying goes, you can take a horse to water, you can't make him drink. And the Singaporean horse simply refuses to drink no matter what you do.

Singapore today is destroyed. And the people have stood idly by while this has happened. The constitution is a dead letter. There are no rights whatsoever. No free speech, expression or assembly. No nothing. They live completely at the mercy of Lee Kuan Yew's son and his friends. And then there is open industrial scale corruption, where Lee Kuan Yew's son and his relatives and friends steal millions every year under their very noises. This corruption goes on. The Singaporean today is a minority in his own country. There are more foreigners , mainly Chinese PRC who treat the island as a temporary stay, like a hotel. And despite all this they have nothing to complain about. They let their island be destroyed under their very noses.

And then there are the watershed events of repression. In 1987 16 innocent Singaporeans were rounded tortured and jailed, in the Marxist Conspiracy, an imagination of then Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew. Not a single Singaporean raised a finger in their support. In the 1980s JB Jeyaretnam was jailed and disbarred all because he opposed the Lees dictatorship. Not a single Singaporean stood up for him. Chee Soon Juan was repeatedly bankrupted through fake defamation of character actions, jailed and kicked out of his job. Not a single Singaporean stood up for him. Recently Roy Ngerng was sued by the disgraceful defamation of character by Lee Kuan Yew's son. Not a single Singaporeans has stood up for him. Even more recently Amos Yee 16 years old has bee arrested for insulting the recently deceased Lee Kuan Yew. No one has stood up for him.

While all this is happening, Singaporeans have been writing reams and reams in the Internet mostly anonymous. But beyond the courage to write on the Internet anonymously they have little else courage. The government on their part simply ignores what you write on the Internet and it appears they are no worse for it.

You do not hold a government accountable for their actions by just writing on the Internet. This is not enough. You have to have island wide protests to make it known to this government who is in charge, The people or them. As long as the government knows they can do whatever they want and get away with it, democracy makes no sense. In Germany the government knows that if they crossed the line, the Germans will not accept it. Nether the French nor the Belgians or English. But in the history of Singapore island they know that the people simply do not have the courage to stand up to their government except for writing anonymous articles on the Internet.

You can take your Internet articles and shove it up, you know where.

Any government chosen at the next elections would make no difference to the present, because the underlying fact that Singaporeans are either incapable or unwilling to stand up them them is proven by history. Just like the present government they would simply do whatever they want.

I have misunderstood the average Singaporeans. I was under the impression that they would prefer to live as free men. My experience with them has proved otherwise. In spite of writing almost everyday, sometimes 2 a day, it has made no difference on the Singaporean. The Singaporean, especially the ethnic Chinese version who form the vast majority in the island are quite prepared to live in bondage. They are not the Hong Kong Chinese who have a large dose of guts.

One can see the futility of it all. What is the point of writing blog after blog only for the average Singaporean do nothing except to write on Facebook?

Singaporeans would do nothing even if Roy Ngerng or the 16 year old Yee was skinned alive before their very eyes. I am not sure that a people like this would deserve democracy let alone someone like me trying to persuade them otherwise.

Only the helpless or ignorant will willingly accept a Singaporean life

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I assume that most people with a choice would want to be free to live their lives as they want and not be compelled  to live under some government who can do as they please over them. Which explains why the Soviet Union is no longer the Soviet Union or why East Germany is no longer what it was.

Singapore island today, like the former Stalin's Soviet Union or East Germany denies freedom to it's people. They are not free to do as they want as the government decides that for them at any moment. The Singapore government just as Josef Stalin of the Soviet Union is all powerful and their people are helpless.

The Constitution of Singapore is just a piece of scrap paper. Nothing in it has the force of law. No right to free speech expression assembly. Simply nothing. After Lee Kuan Yew's demise in Singapore recently , his son and members of his cabal are the island's Big Brother who can at the flick of their finger push anyone around at any time, and declare black to be white or simply say or do anything they want with total impunity.

The Lee government is not accountable to their people, period.

So who are these people who live such lives under the Lee family and accept their miserable existence? Except for complaining on the Internet on a daily basis, it is clear that they are quite happy to live their lives the way they do. There has been no civil unrest in the island after the strongman Lee senior died and everything is calm and quiet as it was before.

If I have even the slightest ability to judge human nature, only souls helpless or ignorant would willingly accept a life such as this. Any self respecting human being would find such a life simply disgraceful.

If you were helpless through a lack of skills or education and incapable of moving anywhere else, I suppose you have no choice but to live like this. Or otherwise, one has to be ignorant. If you did not know that human beings live as free men in the rest of the world, I suppose you wouldn't object to the way you live. Afterall what you did not know cannot hurt you.

If so, one has to conclude that the majority of Singaporeans are of second rate quality because they lack skills which the rest of the world needs which forces them to live the way they do under the Lee family.

Second, they may be ignorant and not aware they have any rights.

So if you have a population of an island made up of poorly skilled or poorly educated workers or worse, dumb individuals, I must say any society like that is in some big trouble.

They are incapable of competing with countries who have educated and confident citizens who are not ignorant as they are in Singapore, and who would not even dream of putting up with such nonsense.

In the long run, with a poorly qualified and educated population, the island will only regress and decline further and further behind countries which have confident robust discerning and demanding well educated citizens who do not have to take the sort of nonsense you see under Singapore's Lee family.

It may take some time, but the long term prognosis for an island with a population such as this does not look very confident. Any society made up of slaves would have a hard time making any progress. If Singapore has managed to remain afloat so far, it is only because it was not the Internet age. Now with ease of mobility and access to information at the click of a mouse, the rules of the game have changed entirely.

No one in his right mind would want to live in any country where he has no rights at all. So you can imagine the caliber of those who populate Lee Kuan Yew's son's island of Singapore today.

Singapore rule through the State Controlled press

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Lee Kuan Yew's Singapore now run by his son is virtually governed by the island's State Controlled press. This is how it works.

Whenever the government wants to destroy any opponent, silence any troublesome Internet site or change any policy this way or that, in order to continue in power, it is simply done through their state controlled press.

Once the oppositionist has been identified, and the decision made for his destruction, the victim is promptly dealt with and the news is immediately disseminated island wide principally to deter anyone else.

Like clockwork, an individual like Roy Ngerng who had recently accused Lee Kuan Yew's son, the successor to the throne of his father of corruption, he will be sued with the usual defamation lawsuit in the state's Kangaroo courts promptly instructed to deliver the appropriate judgment, thereafter the picture of the victim would be published in the state controlled press calling him a thug and what not and his is effectively destroyed.

If he has a job, he would be sacked immediately and the state controlled press would be ordered to insult him on a daily basis.

Fearing the retribution of the state if they did not obey, the rest of the island too would send him to Coventry and the name of Roy Ngerng would be sullied forever.

state controlled newspaper report here

In the case of a troublesome blog, they too would be removed and reported in their propaganda press.

Recently the blog "The Real Singapore" was removed because unlike other blogs they were prepared to say it as it is.

Of course the expected happened.

They were conveniently accused of racial intolerance, even though in reality no such thing happened, and their license to publish promptly terminated.

As if this was not enough the 2 editors were charged with several criminal offenses, magically taken out a hat, including a serious sedition charge which carries imprisonment of several years.

The news of this was promptly punished in the propaganda press, their photos prominently displayed.

As a result, "The Real Singapore" is now history. End of story. See the state controlled newspaper report here

The pattern is, the government does anything they want to silence dissent on a daily basis without law and purely out of dictate, and the story published in the state controlled press. The intention of course is to silence everyone else.

As for the people of Singapore, they have to simply obey whatever they are told by Lee Kuan Yew's newspapers which in reality is simply another company newssheet posted on their bulletin board.

This is not freedom and democracy. It is simply life in a company according to company rules.

And Singapore is a company that is authorized to change their rules anytime they want and as "workers" not citizens, they have to simply obey.

Unlike a real company Singapore citizens are not allowed to go on strike or protest as these actions too are illegal and would result in your being jailed and sued for defamation.

And unlike a company Singaporeans cannot leave and find work in another company either, since they are living in a country and there is nowhere else to go.

Singaporeans literally are slaves, not citizens. They can expect to live their quiet lives as long as they accept their lot at the mercy of their masters. Otherwise they are punished though the state controlled newspapers.

(Update)Gopalan Nair visiting Johore Bahru Malaysia across the straits from Singapore

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Update: May 24, 2015. To contact me, please contact my friend in Singapore, Mr. Bala at his Singapore telephone number 97860241. He will arrange to bring you to meet me in Johor Bahru. I will charge a fee of $50.00 Singapore dollars. Please pay the fee to Mr. Bala. If you are a friend of mine and Mr. Bala, there is no fee. You can also ask me questions on US Immigration law as a US lawyer. I believe Mr. Bala will only be free on the weekends. Therefore if you would want to meet me, you may begin contacting him now. Best regards to all of you. Till I meet you.

I will be visiting Johor Bahru Malaysia from June 08, 2015 to June 20, 2015.

I will be pleased to meet my supporters and friends.

I will post my dedicated phone number here soon before I depart United States.

I will not be crossing over to Singapore for obvious reasons.

Although I have an American passport which does not ordinarily require a visa to enter Singapore, in 2008 when I had criticized the Lee Kuan Yew judge Belinda Ang Saw Ean while on a short trip to the island, for her disgraceful bias and corruption in the case of Lee Kuan Yew vs Chee Soon Juan, I was arrested and sent to jail there and immediately thereafter deported.

See my blog post here dated May 29, 2008 titled "Singapore. Judge Belinda Ang's Kangaroo Court"

This deportation does not allow me to enter the island without a visa.

Even if I were to apply for a visa and even if they were to grant it, it is still unwise to enter the island since Singapore does not have the rule of law and they could do anything they want including detaining me under additional charges which they can literally draw out of a hat.

It is not that I am afraid of them but being detained once again in the island like they did to me the last time is something I cannot risk now, as I have a law practice to run in the United States and there are clients who depend on me for their cases.

I cannot abandon them, which will be the case if they were to hold me once again for an extended period.

I therefore cannot take the risk of entering an island that is run as a fiefdom by Lee Kuan Yew's son, who obviously no longer cares for his international reputation.

If you want to see me and talk about the future of the island under Lee Kuan Yew's son, or even just chat over some nasi lemak and Kopi-O (food and refreshments that only locals would understand) please telephone me at the number I will post here in the next few days.
