Ladies and Gentlemen,
Today's greatest leveller between the powerful and the weak, the oppressed and the oppressors is just one thing, modern mass communication and the Internet.
Sun Tzu, the Chinese military strategist, although he wrote about actual warfare, his wisdom is equally true in politics. His belief was the need to weaken the enemy, before the battle, in this case Lee Kuan Yew and his PAP, by dissatisfaction and disaffection as the foundation upon which you build towards battle.
When the people are unhappy, they will obviously be more willing to resist and through resistance, our forces, the opposition would overrun them easily.
And that is exactly what this blog Singapore Dissident and the other blogs as well as democracy activists and everyone else are doing. We are pointing out the evils of Lees' despotic regime. When the people are made to realize the injustices being meted to them, they begin to feel unhappiness.
With unhappiness, they refuse to vote for the PAP at elections, emigrate to other western countries, refuse to have children; all insurmountable problems that Lee Kuan Yew faces today.
As the truth about Singapore is spread around the world, western investors refuse to invest there, they pull out their investments and international banks relocate to other Asian countries from Singapore.
Given the lack of the rule of law and the realization that Singaporean judges are mere servants of the government and distort to law to punish political detractors and favor the ruling party, they lose arbitration business and more and more lawyers lose income and thrown out of work. Today, Singapore has no more than 3000 lawyers for a city of 5 million!
So one thing is certain. Today you simply cannot run roughshod over the people. Even if the Internet alone cannot overthrow governments today, they can definitely cause the people to hate them and this hate and dissatisfaction will eventually with time overcome the state.
No matter which way you look at it, states can only function with the support and respect of their people. Without it they cannot except of course for closed societies like North Korea which Singapore is not, and cannot be.
