Ladies and Gentlemen,
A close look at the Peoples Republic of China and Singapore will reveal surprising similarities, and I don't mean just how their people look.
Communist China does not claim to be a democracy but Singapore does, yet they are both exactly the same when it comes to government. In China, the Communist Party always rule while in Singapore, it is Lee Kuan Yew's People Action Party, always. Although it's Constitution claims free and fair elections every 5 years and every man and women a free and secret vote, nothing can be further from the truth. The Constitution of Singapore is the biggest piece of fraudulent paper that Lee sells to the world, which the world is slowly beginning to realize.
In Communist China, Xinhua News Agency as in Singapore, Singapore Press Holdings, the newspapers TV and radio are completely state controlled and tools of the government to advance national interest by telling you what you should know and concealing what you should not. In both countries, as expected, there is completely no investigative journalism, which means you will never hear of the state's shortcomings but only exaggerated claims of grandiose achievements. It is not only an insult to your intelligence but a deliberate harm inflicted on your mind for the benefit of Lee Kuan Yew and his government on the alleged claim that it is good for the country.
Singapore and and Communist Chinese children unlike their western counterparts are often seen as intimidated and afraid to question authority or to express their opinions publicly choosing instead to be introverted and shy. This sort of behaviour is encouraged by their teachers and parents who live in fear of their governments as protest against government actions can lead to reprisals and punishment. This sort of life under suppression and repression should not be something that any parent should desire for their children.
Singaporeans just as their Communist Chinese counterparts are not an equal partner in government but just slaves to comply with any government demand on the claim that it is in the national interest. In this way individual rights are completely denied in preference to so-called national interest. As an example, if your house or land has to be pulled down because they want to build a highway, or if you were paid completely inadequate compensation or none at all for it, you just have to accept it. If you were dismissed from your government job unfairly, just accept it. If your private employer dismissed you on the orders of the government, just accept it. Simply put, you have no rights. The laws on the books don't mean a thing. You are wrong and Lee Kuan Yew or his Singapore government is always right, get it into your thick head.
In both countries you have to understand to shut your mouth and do as you are told. The courts and the law are there to serve Lee Kuan Yew and his Peoples Action Party. They are also there to serve Lee Kuan Yew's supporters. So if you want to help yourself at the expanse of others, join the Peoples Action Party and become an official card carrying member. It helped in Franco's Spain, it helps in Communist China, it helped in Hitler's Germany and it also helps in Lee Kuan Yew's Singapore.
If you don't care of such things as rights, if it does not matter to you that Lee Kuan Yew and his family steal your taxpayers money to the tune of $3.7 million a year which they call salary, if it does not matter to you that you have no rights whatsoever because the courts and the judges work for Lee Kuan Yew alone, if it does not matter that the police can pick you up anytime they want and beat you anytime they want, if you don't care that you are fed only propaganda and not news, if you are happy with a life such as this, Singapore can be an excellent place to live. After all it has running trains, running buses and working telephones, things you may not enjoy in nearby Jakarta.
I also understand that Germany under Hitler from 1933 to 1938 also achieved great economic success. But as in Singapore of today, the Germans then were nothing but slaves to Hitler. Card carrying members of the Nazi Party just as card carrying members of Lee Kuan Yew's Peoples Action Party were the preferred citizens over others.
When I read daily of great Chinese achievements of more highways and even more high speed trains, just as in tiny Singapore of more highways and glass towers, I ask myself whether all this success is worth anything when you have slaves, dummies and ignorant morons as citizens. Just as you hear of the Chinese praising their government for these construction achievements and the average Singaporean moron who is happy to have a job and the mass transit trains, you begin to understand that is all that they want.
In both countries today, you have citizens so ignorant as to be unaware of such things as individual rights, quite content to serve a master that would continue to give them jobs, build more highways and even higher glass towers.
There are other thinking human beings who have the understanding to realize that these things alone don't matter much without rights. Unfortunately such citizens which the country needs the most have all left for Australia and other Western countries to bring up children and live; in countries where they are respected and have rights. To replace them, Lee Kuan Yew's Singapore have brought in hordes of people who have nothing more in their heads beyond a job and the high rise buildings. Without sufficient numbers of thinking and discerning individuals, I see no future for Singapore because just the modern trains and the glass towers are simply not enough.
Of course on a daily basis you cannot miss the sanguine uplifting mood of the Singaporean media reporting even more achievements upon achievements. But then you know all that is nothing more than just propaganda, with hardly any truth in it. As the saying goes, such totalitarian regimes looked good until the last 5 minutes.
