Ladies and Gentlemen,
Over the years, looking at Singapore's population, I have asked the question, what it takes to be successful in Singapore? The answer to that is to be liked by Lee Kuan Yew. And what sort of human being does Lee Kuan Yew like? Someone who passes his exams in school, who is obedient to his parents and his government (Lee), who is quiet and does not make too much noise about anything and someone who is humble when he meets his superiors. I think having read a little of the Chinese wise man Confucius, these are the qualities to succeed under the Ming Emperor 2000 years ago. But these are also the qualities that Lee Kuan Yew looks for in his citizens, on which I fail miserably on all counts.
I am not quiet or humble or obedient. I am always looking to challenge authority because I believe, and truly so, that I am smarter than Lee Kuan Yew and it is absolutely necessary to continue exposing the man because he is nothing but a dictator.
Which explains why they had to put me in jail for 3 months for criticizing his corrupt judge Belinda Ang Saw Ean in 2008, have me deported from his island and disbarred from practicing law there.
Surely I can understand why all these terrible things are happening to me. Gopalan Nairs are not good for Lee Kuan Yew and his government because we talk too much and we have too many ideas, not all similar to his.
But you know what I am enjoying every minute of it, because people are reading what I write. Surely there can be nothing more rewarding than that. And bit by bit, people are being persuaded the other way, not into thinking this guy is some kind of superman, but actually some kind of a Singaporean rat.
