Ladies and Gentlemen,
True Singapore today has skyscrapers. It did not in 1955. But truly, Singapore was far more advanced in 1955 than it is today. Surprised? You shouldn't be. Just look at this.
In 1955 Singapore had a free press. You could read independent news. People could criticize the government without being arrested. There was no Lee Kuan Yew bullying everyone into submission. People could look forward to work and a pension and retirement. If you did something wrong, you got a small fine, not several hundreds of thousands of dollars. Life was good. People were happy. You could see it in their faces.
Today you cannot do any of this. If you criticized you would be sued and arrested. People have to work until they dropped dead. Judges are not independent but Lee's agents. You don't have jury trials and if you were not on Lee's side there is double trouble from all sides.
Please take your silly skyscrapers and give me Singapore of 1955 anytime. And while at it, take your superman Lee Kuan Yew with you, please.
Tell me now, which country in the world has actually gone backwards except Lee Kuan Yew's Singapore?
