Lee Kuan Yew's First World Country. Or Alice in Wonderland.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Lee Kuan Yew wrote a book "From Third World to First" meaning Singapore. This is what Singapore is. Is it a first world country?

The Singapore constitution guarantees freedom of speech and expression. In fact none exist. Dr. Chee is presently undergoing a trial in court for doing just that. That is for allegedly making a speech. To speak you need a license. He did not have it.

The Constitution of Singapore claims there is rule of law. There is none. All judges are appointed at the pleasure of Lee Kuan Yew and removed if he is displeased. In order to please Lee Kuan Yew and to keep their jobs, they always punish Lee’s opponents. Regardless of any law.

All newspapers and news media is wholly owned and controlled by the Lee Kuan Yew government. Therefore they publish only politically correct news or rather propaganda. The head of the executive committee in the Straits Times, the largest newspaper is Miss Chua Mui Hoong. She is an intelligence of officer with Internal Security Department, the government intelligence agency in Singapore whose main job is to arrest and convict political opponents and detain them indefinitely without trial. As well as her job as intelligence officer, she doubles as an editor of the paper.

The Singapore government claims that their GDP is several millions or billions and that the per capita income is US$20,000 or more. This gives the impression that Singaporeans are rich. Nothing is further from the truth. Singapore has a few millionaires from abroad, who are parking their money there. Most of it is illegal money. Singapore is a money laundering center used by Burmese drug lords and Indonesian criminals who defrauded banks in Indonesia. These have placed their illegal millions in Singapore banks.

The money of these criminals inflates the GDP of the country as a whole. In fact about half of Singaporeans can barely survive and many are unable to pay even their utility bills. Many of these people are just above the poverty line or below. Since Singapore does not provide any reasonable welfare payments for the underprivileged, they are given a few hindered dollars a month and asked to fend for themselves. The government is not interested in these people. Lee Kuan Yew believes that it is their own fault that they have not succeeded in life.

As most Singaporeans live in high rise government built flats, it makes it convenient for suicides. All they have to do is to jump off their high rise apartments. By this method, suicide is guaranteed. Recently with the government having built the Mass Rapid Transport rail system, people have been jumping onto oncoming trains to kill themselves. At the latest figures, there are at least 2 suicides a day. Most of those who die this way come from the half of Singapore who lives in poverty or just above the poverty line. The government is not bothered by these suicides. They may even be glad these people have gone. Lee Kuan Yew only wants successful people. In his thinking, mediocre people have no right to live anyway. Hitler too thought that way. Hitler killed disabled people.

Singapore has CPF. It stands for Central Provident Fund. It is meant to give you retirement savings when you reach 55. Lee has now declared that it is no longer going to pay anything when you reach 55. Lee wants people to continue working until they die. He believes retirement is a bad thing. Retirement he says, kills people. He has stated he does not intend to retire. He expects others to follow his example. Yesterday, he said in a Straits Times interview that at his age of 84, he still cycles, swims and does rock climbing among other vigorous feats on a daily basis. Although he has not said that he intends to run the marathon in under 2 hours, he may very well be planning that! But looking at his picture he looked more a frail old man. Whether it was a case of dementia or other mental illness, it is hard to say. The report did not make clear whether he wanted Singaporeans to exercise like him.

There is no minimum wage law or anti discriminatory laws in Singapore. Any employer can discriminate against Malays and Indians in employment by a simple expedient. By requiring them to have knowledge of Chinese. There was one case where an Indian knew spoken Chinese. He was still refused the job when the employer then required a new qualification, knowledge of written Chinese! I have heard another case where even though the non Chinese knew both spoken and written Chinese he was still refused the job! He did not know the principles of Confucianism and Taoism by heart!

Older people even though fit and well are still refused jobs. They are told they are too old. There was one case where the man was 60 and very fit. He was still denied the job. He could not run the mile in under 4 minutes!

These older people in Singapore who are kicked out of their jobs do not have any retirement. The CPF is not given to them. In any case, the do not have any CPF funds anyway. The government makes house prices so expensive that they have used all their money in CPF to pay for the house. When they are old, they have no retirement, no savings and no job. So the older Singaporeans end up as toilet cleaners and food stall table cleaners. You can see them every where in Singapore. Their ages range from 65 to 95. Even if they can hardly stand, they must work. Otherwise they starve. According to Lee Kuan Yew, if they are suffering, it is their own fault for not becoming an offshore banker!

In Singapore you can hardly hear anyone talking politics. They are silent. Government informers are everywhere and are all ears. It has been known that simple people who have been discovered criticizing the government have suddenly descended into all sorts of problems. They suddenly lost their jobs and their promotions. Many of them have had no choice other than the only job available to such cases. Toilet cleaners. So when you see a younger man who is a toilet cleaner, you can probably guess why. He must have criticized the government and was found out.

In Singapore you cannot chew gum. If you did, it will be confiscated and you will be punished. I do not know whether the police will use the gum in your mouth as evidence. If so, how do they compel you to spit it out? And if you refused, can Singapore cop use force to pry open your mouth, stick their finger in it, to force it out! I do not know how they do it, in this first world country! I shudder to think.

Singapore claimed recently that it has become a more liberal country. And to prove it they have now allowed bar top dancing. It is like this. Girls or young women are first required to remove their upper garments. As for lower garments, they can keep them on, but it has to be flimsy. In other words, not too much clothing. Something like a bikini is preferred. They then are asked to stand on top of a bar and to dance. As to what kind of dance is not specified. I do not believe that ballet is one of the acceptable dances but other kinds are permissible. Dances like the samba, the gig, salsa or disco is fine I think. But I am not too sure. I think bars may hand a list of acceptable dances. I am not sure.

The dancing is accompanied by music. Men are encouraged to surround the bar and admire the women. Also perhaps their dancing proficiency. I am not sure if the men are allowed to touch the women but I understand that different establishments have different rules. Someone had asked what this bar top dancing had even remotely to do with the government's claim of liberalizing the country; but the question remains unanswered.

I understand that recently Dr. Vivian Balakrishnan, who is a minister in Lee Kuan Yew's government, had discouraged this rather unusual trick of bar top dancing. He correctly pointed out the women may fall off the bar table and injure themselves, as well as others in the fall; the boyfriends of the women on the bar top may start fighting with each other and murder and mayhem may ensue; and all other manner of untold problems may come about. I understand that the women in Singapore, have decided to take the advice of the minister, like they always do in Singapore, and have stopped the practice altogether. I do not know whether Lee Kuan Yew will have any other equally unconventional means of liberalizing Singapore, but we will have to wait and see.

Many educated people are leaving Singapore for other countries. They no longer are able to live in this first world country anymore. In their place, Lee Kuan Yew brings in Chinese babies from the People's Republic of China accompanied by their mothers. Lee Kuan Yew, for reasons best known to him, has decided that only the mothers of these Chinese babies can come. Since both the child and mother have no benefit of English, the mother has no choice but to work in establishments such as massage parlors and Chinese eating houses. Very often because of the refusal to admit the father to Singapore, these People Republic of China children are either illegitimate or from broken homes. This is unavoidable, since no self respecting father would permit his child to be taken away from him. Surely.

In Singapore when the parties are identified, litigants already know the outcome of a lawsuit even before they step into court. JB Jeyaretnam has lost all the cases that Lee Kuan Yew has brought against him. So has Dr. Chee Soon Juan. The judges are required to find in favor of Lee Kuan Yew. Otherwise they will lose their jobs.

Children and students in Singapore classrooms do not speak up. They are afraid of their teachers. If they question too much, they will be labeled troublemakers. This will mean the end of their careers. Students too, like their teachers and parents always keep their mouths shut. They sincerely believe that talking is only silver. Silence is golden.

The Malays are now running a race to keep up their population numbers . They are having more babies. But no matter how many babies they have, Lee Kuan Yew brings in a hundred times more babies with their single mothers from Communist China. This is troubling the Malays and Indians but they are afraid to complain. They fear being arrested and locked up without trial by Miss Chua Mui Hoong the Intelligence Officer.

I wonder how Mr. Lee Kuan Yew has decided that it is a first world country. It is more like Alice in Wonderland!

"Retirement he says, kills people. He has stated he does not intend to retire. He expects others to follow his example. Yesterday, he said in a Straits Times interview that at his age of 84, he still cycles, swims and does rock climbing among other vigorous feats on a daily basis."

See why this frailing old man get $3 millions plus a year for doing exercise him alive and for his leisure, it is not even work for him because he can do whatever he wants and still get money. With such both entitlement and privilege, who will want to retire ? No wonder this old man get talk cock !

But for others, when old, it is matter of survival , to compete against foreign talent and harsh of the society, and they not even getting a fraction of the bloody old man's pay. To them work is work, not leisure.

If old man say work is good, why not asking him to work in Macdonald and get peanut pay ? If he can't do that, perhaps he like to shut his fuck2@#$3king mouth.

Whatever comes out from the old man is a great insult to the intelligence of all Singapore. No wonder Singaporean is become moronic each day by some senile oldie.

I am struggling to get a job (I have been unemployed for a year now) because I can't get a job....either coz I don't speak mandarin or coz I had previously broken my teaching bond. Either way, I feel it is unfair. Why do I need to speak mandarin in order to work as a designer (I will be using my hands, head and eyes for my work most of the time, definitely not my mandarin)??? Why am I pinalised for something which I had paid for, every single cent of it (I have paid my liquidated damages fee for breaking my bond)???

Hello Ross Zane,
Thank you for your EMail. I sense a feeling of desperation and helplesness in your position. I realize you are this way becuase of the fear instilled into you by the Lee Administration. I too was that way in Singapore as a child until England changed me.

Let me be blunt, if you don't mind. If some employer there says you cant have a job because you are not Chinese, then do not accept that excuse. Stand your ground and demand an explanation. Go to the government department and complain. Tell them it is your country too. Protest outside the premises of the dicriminator.

You can contact Jufrie Mohd Masood. He has come out into politics after an interregnum. See Dr. Chee. But do something.

Don't just sit by idly compalining. And if it is your intention to merely write to me complaining, it is neither good for you nor good for me. Believe me, I already know that Malays are being discriminated. Telling me that again, serves no purpose.

Stand up and fight; if not go overseas and fight; or remain silent and accept it. Noone can help you if you are not prepared to help yourself.

There are many in Singapore who are preared to live in subjucation. You can join them if you want to. They, by the way, do not write to me.

If my letter is blunt and insensitive, it is meant to be. We do not wish to waste time with cry babies. If you are a man, then act like one.

Otherwise live your life and accept it.

You may not like what I have written, but it is meant to shock you from your complacence.

The future of Singapore is in the hands of the freedom fighters and those individuals that can act based on Gods Law, and not that of one single man as currently practiced in Singapore.

In time to come, Singapore citizens would need to unite with Malaysian citizens to form one economic entity much like the EU.

Colonial imperialism has divided nations to rule and conquer them.

The time has now arrived for unity and peace that foster justice and equality and not war, enslavement and oppresion of the people.

The policy to require elderly people to continue working is disgraceful and speaks about the mindset of Singaporeans and their lack of respect to the elderly. Most of us do not agree with this. I for one do not see myself working in my sunset years(above 65yrs). I dream of retiring before 60and helping out at charities and not to work for survival. With the current cost of living and wages remaining stagnant despite rising inflation, it is almost impossible for me to retire here. Migrating abroad is the only natural thing for me. Now i am deciding the place I want to go. BTW I'm only 28yrs old Singaporean Malay.
