Ladies and Gentlemen,
Singapore's state controlled newspaper the Straits Times online edition of Dec 15, 2010 has the story "Punishing for suicide bids". The story ran in the wake of a string of suicides, mounting in number, with a case yesterday being reported of a
Chinese national resident in Singapore (Singapore is almost a satellite Communist China city now), a woman who had almost miraculously survived a fall of 10 floors from her high rise apartment into it's swimming pool. The newspaper story was the government thinking aloud, as is the very purpose of the state controlled propaganda that is dished out daily, of whether these suicide attempts should be punished.
The fact is, as would be known by anyone following the Singapore propoganda that many bad practices, for want of a better phrase, are taking hold in the island. For one, there are suicides in the island everyday, the preferred method being jumping off the ubiquitous skyscrapers which has pigeon holes (tiny little apartments) in them where the Lee Kuan Yew's "digits" live (digit is the term Lee Kuan Yew once referred to his people), without parachutes. When they fall, there is the expected loud thud, the police come with the ambulance and the dead person is carted away within a few minutes and the blood hosed off with water. In the past people used to watch in horror but today it is so commonplace and since most Singaporeans have seen at least one suicide, they don't care anymore.
Also you recently have the rampant mayhem and murder in public by youths as young as 8. Since guns are unavailable in the island, to kill and maim, they bring along knives, swords and machetes. It is possible to see young teenagers in gangs walking along the streets brandishing the deadly weapons as if they were quietly going on a hunt. And then after they have killed or maimed their enemies, the bloody gory pictures of a boy dying in a pool of blood are shown in the propaganda sheets almost as s form of entertainment. The people who say Singapore is a safe place have to have their heads examined.
Lee Kuan Yew as we know has no religion. A reading of him tells us that he did not care too much for such things as principles, or care and compassion. To him, what mattered was to win over your competition, no matter how it is done, which in his case was to abuse the legal system to destroy his opponents, control the press and deny press freedom and to defame or jail anyone that questions his authority. And as the saying goes, Singaporeans over whom he rules as the supreme ruler naturally think that is the way to live. Like Master like Servant.
And these killings, suicides and the unprecedented number of criminals who cheat and defraud has to be a reflection of what Lee Kuan Yew himself believes.
Singaporeans today are by far an irreligious people. If they had a religion, it has to be money, just as Lee Kuan Yew believes. And because Singaporeans have no constitution or a set of rights, they are like a people without a direction or a foundation. Just like Lee Kuan Yew, to cheat and destroy your neighbour through unjust means is no longer looked upon negatively since that is exactly how their leader lives. In Singapore, it is not men of courage, purpose in life and principle who succeed, it is those who grovel and sing praises to Lee Kuan Yew who manage that. A good lawyer is not someone who excels in the law, as there is no law, it is someone who puts away Alan Shadrake 6 weeks in jail in violation of his right of freedom of speech, to please Lee Kuan Yew who is.
In every walk of life, as the Constitution is destroyed, and the path to success is to be crafty and devious, the people have no faith in their institutions, they are left to drift in any direction, not knowing how to live or what men should aspire for.
And that is why, in Lee Kuan Yew's Singapore, suicides, mayhem and murder, cheating and dishonesty is the order of the day. I cannot for a moment believe that such a society is either worth living in or defending.
