Lee Kuan Yew
Remember, the island has only about 5 million, of which only about 2 million are local born. The rest are recent immigrants mostly from
In the recent article dated Aug 16, 2012 in the state controlled newspaper Straits Times, the report states "4 in 5 Singaporeans see migrants as short term fix for birth rate", and “that Singaporeans must decide whether to replace themselves in the next generation”.
As it is quite normal for state controlled newspapers everywhere, it's reports often are nothing but simply nonsense. After all it can say anything it wants.
Think about it; in this case, how can Singaporeans feel that the ongoing policy of brining massive numbers of Chinese into the island be simply a short term measure unless they have some other long term solution, which they do not?
Second it is funny to think that Singaporeans are now going to sit down and discuss whether or not to replace themselves in the next generation! It is as if they are now going to switch on a button! These things are not as easy as that.
And, if they decide not to replace themselves, for the sake of argument, then what are they planning to do?
You can see this whole report is simply absolute nonsense, even for a state controlled newspaper.
And then the report goes on to say that the "stark picture of a shrinking and ageing population has made them realize (now) the need to change mindsets regarding marriage and procreation".
So are they now, since they have finally realized this, going out en masse and get married and immediately thereafter, en masse, to have a multitude of children? What do you think this is, a stud farm!
And why have they not realized this before? And why have they only now finally decided to have babies?
Finally this altogether mindless nonsense of a report says that 88% of the people polled in a survey have finally decided that it is important to have babies since the population is shrinking.
So, are we to assume that all Singaporeans are just ignorant dummies who never knew this until recently when their beloved dictator Lee Kuan Yew mentioned this to them in his national day message?
Just who do you think we are anyway, a bunch of fools? People do not just decide after a discussion meeting to go out and have several babies when they never wanted to before. Has anything changed? Has Lee Kuan Yew died? Has living under the dictatorship got any better?
Singapore population will continue to shrink even more, it's people would emigrate to the West in even larger numbers, because it has already turned into a satellite city of Communist China as every other person you see there is Chinese.
It's simply too late pal. Writing this nonsense is not going to buck the inevitable demise of the native Singaporean.
