Ladies and Gentlemen,
Throughout history, dictatorships first fought external enemies. Then they began fighting their own people. That is when they all collapsed. And history is being repeated again with Lee Kuan Yew's dictatorship today, not having to defeat any external enemies, but their own citizens; which is now, as history dictates, the precursor to complete collapse.
The Soviet Union, the Eastern block countries and every single dictatorship today except for Communist China, Cuba, North Korea and Burma are going through history yet again. Remember Czechoslovakia and East Germany. First their enemies were the western capitalists. Later they began to have to deal with popular uprisings for democracy, which they initially managed to put down with force. And then, they themselves collapsed.
Singapore is no different. First Lee Kuan Yew's trick to cling to power was the communist bogey. When that trick was eventually exposed, and Singaporeans began to increasingly demand a more free and democratic society, Lee Kuan Yew's enemies became the citizens themselves.
Today Singapore's (or Lee Kuan Yew government's) enemies are ordinary Singaporeans like Dr. Chee Soon Juan, Gandhi Ambalam, John Tan and numerous other Singaporeans who are fighting for freedom in Singapore. Among those abroad, the enemies are Francis Seow, Tang Liang Hong, the various Singaporeans who had to flee Singapore and who now live all over the world including myself, all enemies of the Singapore state according to the Lee Kuan Yew administration. Singapore's model citizens are the Attorney General Walter Woon, his Minister for law S Shanmugam and lawyers who work for him by eliminating the opposition such as Davinder Singh and judges who carry out the dirty work entrusted to them like Belinda Ang Saw Ean.
While this public denunciation, condemnation and punishment of totally innocent men such as Dr. Chee Soon Juan goes on every day before the very eyes of the entire Singaporean public, increasing numbers of Singaporeans not only lose their respect for this administration, they begin to hate it. Through fear, many are unable to voice their hatred. But hate, they nevertheless have for this corrupt and discredited administration.
The result of this is emigration of the talented from Singapore, a declining population and the talent pool in Singapore continuing to decline, leaving only those with little or no education in Singapore; or those lacking any principles or moral fibre who are willing to profit by collaborating with this dictatorship. Another difficulty that the administration faces is the bad reputation Singapore receives in the rest of the world with the repression against their citizens being exposed worldwide. This results in lack of foreign investment into the country thereby weakening it's capacity to function normally.
The next thing to look out for is the gradual weakening of it's global competitiveness. And next thing, finally, is it's total collapse. Just as the former East Germany and Romania.
Just as someone had said "Dictatorships always look good till the last ten minutes".
