Unless the map is magnified, you are not even going to see it; it is that tiny.
And in this island is packed no less that 5 million people, of which only 2.5 million are local born, a declining number and the other 2.5 million are temporary workers mainly from Communist China.
The local population continues to decline because the island has the lowest reproduction rate in the world, the largest emigration rate in the world and a huge elderly population which is not being replaced by local childbirth.
Today’s Straits Times, one of many newspapers in the island, all of whom are state controlled has the report of the trial of a college professor who had sold good grades to his student in exchange for sex and gifts.

In parallel, there are several other similar cases of Lee Kuan Yew government people having corruptly received sex and money in exchange for state contracts. There are far too many of these and the reader is invited to check them out.
Earlier there was large numbers of arrests of people engaging in pedophilia with teenage prostitutes across the island. They were all given a mere slap on the wrist, jail terms of no more than a week in most cases and let off.
According to reports, the island has a bustling burgeoning sex trade with a whole area set aside of several square miles, known as Geylang, in an already land starved tiny island.
The prostitution is so well organized and state sanctioned with specific streets designated to certain nationalities.
For example if you wanted the ubiquitous Chinese mainland woman, you would go to Street one.
For a Filipina, Street two and so on.
There are Sri Lankans, Indians, even Ukrainians if you prefer.
They are all allowed to enter
All this happens well within the midst of families with children in the nearby housing estate blocks in the crowded jam packed tiny island; children who have no choice but to pass the streets lined with these women of pleasure daily on their way to school!
Now tell me, what sort of adults these children will grow up to!
I am not surprised why an increasing percentage of
Mind you the woman involved in the sex for grades case, was actually studying law and is now working as a lawyer!
Can you imagine what sort of lawyer that would that be?
And mind you, their state controlled Singapore Bar has taken no action to discipline her, as if it is perfectly all right in that island for a lawyer to have got a license through sleeping with her professor.
This is where the problem lies.
As Lee Kuan Yew demands as a requirement to live in his island, total submission to his rules, or else defamation actions and arrests; good people with some character and mettle, would find it impossible to reconcile such an existence with their conscience.
So they do what they have to do, and emigrate to live away from an island which has no free press, no rule of law and a corrupt administration.
They are no longer in
What you have left are people without character, like someone who would not consider it out of the ordinary to sleep with a professor for grades.
And since the rest of the citizenry there are not much different, since they don't mind living under the rule of Lee Kuan Yew, they don't see anything much wrong with such disgusting behavior either.
You find even local Singaporean girls making money on the side by the euphemistic term "part time work" and by and large their parents don't frown upon this too much either.
In fact, you would be surprised to know that every
It seems the pimp and the brothel owner both expect God's grace for their prostitution business!
I wonder what sort of God is that!
And then you have thousands and thousands of native Singaporeans with no care in the world but one, to pass school exams and serve the Lee Kuan Yew government for the rest of their lives.
They are even incapable of questions such as the laws they have to live under, and fundamental human rights and other such ideals which never cross their minds.
Countries such as Lee Kuan Yew's dictatorships all suffer from the same unavoidable consequences, that is, the people who are able to think, leave and the dummies and blind followers stay behind.
What this does is to continuously weaken the quality of their citizens, to a people who know only how to be led, and completely incapable of leading.
Just as James Bond once said to a beautiful Specter agent in a car in the movie Dr. No, “some people like to drive, and some people like to be taken for a ride”.
Of course the island's state controlled newspapers only have non stop flowing good news and praises for themselves, but that is all they can do for now; but for how long more, we cannot say.
