Ladies and Gentlemen,
Lee Kuan Yew of Singapore is driving the country headlong into fascism. And in that process it is taking it headlong into the bog.
The signs of fascism is all very evident and in recent times ever more so. Only a few days ago, the Straits Times, a state controlled newspaper there (by the way all papers are state controlled) reported that Singapore civil servants are now being posted to the different constituencies to work with the government members of Parliament, something which would have been unheard of in any other democracy, where the civil service is always expected to be completely neutral in politics.
Even before this latest action, Singapore has all along had the elements of a fascist state which extols the principle that all organs of state and power work with one mind. We already have this today. The newspapers are state controlled, the judiciary takes orders from the Lee Kuan Yew family, all forms of open criticism is denied, protests are illegal, demonstrations are illegal and the only way to succeed in life is by joining and supporting Lee Kuan Yew's Peoples Action Party.
A comparison with Hitler's Germany places Germany in at least an arguably sounder position than Singapore. Germany after the first world war was in shambles when Hitler came along and promised economic salvation, to which many Germans went along, whereas Lee Kuan Yew, Singapore's dictator does not appear to have any excuse at all for his insistence on a fascist state. In his case, the only justification he has, even though he does not want to admit it, is to ensure him and his family remaining in power eternally.
And we now see the damage that this persistent demand for fascism on his part is doing to Singapore. We have been reading the daily reports of Lee Kuan Yew's new politicians who are being fielded at the elections and who will invariably win and would be running your government. The sight of some of these men and women is indeed alarming.
Only yesterday, a 27 year old Chinese Singaporean woman, whom no one has ever heard before has been paraded as one of the new leaders of the new government. She has no political experience, no leadership qualities whatsoever, no knowledge of any political theory or practice whatsoever except of course her desire to enrich herself by serving the Lee Kuan Yew government. If she has one quality, I expect that to be the ability to say and do anything that Lee Kuan Yew demands, anywhere anytime ,day or night. Otherwise her head is empty.
In the same vein as this political aspirant, Singapore style, many others have been brought out by Lee Kuan Yew and their faces paraded. I for one would find it very unpleasant to live under a regime with such men and women who have no idea about anything except to please Lee Kuan Yew running my life!
One such person for the Lee Kuan Yew team comes as a surprise. He is a former Malaysian Northern Ireland doctor who will be the latest face in the PAP. But why does he want to be part of this government which has been discredited and disgraced as nothing more than a dictatorship. Is he not aware that it has no free press, no human rights, a politicized judiciary which would be prepared to say anytime that 2 and 2 is 25 or any other number that Lee wants to hear? Would one not expect such an educated man such as this to join the opposition instead and try to bring about some justice and freedom to the people. Or is it that he sees it as the greatest oppurtunity to enrich himself in the process.
Looking at the runners in this election, I can tell you that it is Singapore which is suffering under such mediocrity. They very fact that Lee Kuan Yew has to rely on such 27 year old dummies shows that he is finding it extremely difficult to find anyone even remotely capable willing to join his bandwagon, a bandwagon that has been disgraced and discredited.
And the lack of talent is not only with the PAP but also with the opposition, but this time for another reason. People who are qualified, educated and experienced fear to enter opposition politics because of what Lee Kuan Yew will do to them, leaving only a few brave souls who are prepared to martyr themselves for Singapore.
I can tell you Singapore is made up of a multi fold number of talented people who would have served the people in government. But they fear Lee Kuan Yew which ensures their silence and withdrawal from any political activity. In fact the vast majority of them are no longer in Singapore choosing instead to live in the West where they are free.
And what is left is this 27 year old woman who has joined politics to sing Lee's praises, and to tell you what to do.
Am I not glad I got out.
