Ladies and Gentlemen,
I suppose Lee Kuan Yew of Singapore is used to abusing the rights of his critics who thereafter willingly fade away and leave him alone. Had I remained in Singapore, this would probably have been my fate too as it is almost humanly impossible to render any further resistance once he embarks on his evil vendetta against you of repeatedly harassing you, imprisoning you, and depriving you of a livelihood. History has shown that this has been the fate of almost every single person who had dared to stand up to his dictatorship.
But the equation is very different if you manage to get out of Singapore. Since the whole purpose is to expose this repressive regime to the world and change both international and domestic opinion against this regime, this purpose is entirely doable from outside Singapore.
The Internet still reaches the Singapore domestic population and the world at large and writing this blog enables me to put forward the other side of the coin from that of Singapore's propaganda in their state controlled newspapers.
It is impossible to judge exactly how many people have been swayed and persuaded against this tyranny but the general trend in the decline of support in the regime is indicative. The population continues to decline with almost non existent childbirth rate, and anyone there is most likely a foreigner from somewhere else. The brain drain of the skilled and educated continues to mount and Singapore appears to have ran out ideas on economic policy which has stagnated over some time.
Lee Kuan Yew has to be told that there are some people who simply don't roll over as and when he pleases. They may get out but continue a thorn on his side.
I urge other Singaporeans who have similarly got of that dictatorship join the drumbeat around the world in condemning this regime. True, there may be some disadvantages from doing this such as being barred from entering Singapore such as in my case, but surely these small inconveniences is a small price to pay in the pursuit of the goal of toppling this regime. Every single person's effort goes a long way to hurt this regime.
