The bombshell revelation last week by the Lee Kuan Yew father and son, dictatorship of
Please see the following articles from the last few days on the issue from the island's state controlled newspapers Straits Times
Lee Kuan Yew, just like dictators anywhere else, thought he knew best; no need for any consultation with his people. Thinking the way to run a country is the ancient Chinese practice in the Ming or Tang Dynasty where the emperor employed selected scholars to do all the thinking and promulgate laws for the imbeciles in his country; Lee similarly went about his usual practice of sending young Singapore children on government scholarships abroad, and return to run the island as best they thought. As for the ordinary Singaporean, like the Chinese peasants under the Tang emperor, Lee felt their participation totally unnecessary.
These scholar idiots, if such a term is possible without being an oxymoron, in their headlong rush to increase the island GDP at any cost passed laws allowing an unprecedented large numbers of immigrants into an already overcrowded island to take up residence and set up businesses, which required an even larger unprecedented numbers of workers from abroad to run these businesses set up by these foreigners.
These scholar idiots- you will now see that such a description is not entirely inaccurate- did not appear to take into account the consequences of this huge number immigrating to the island, on the local Singaporeans who were born and bred there.
Of course the consequence was that today, there are far too many businesses which has gone beyond what a tiny island like this with just about 2.5 million local population can handle. Unless you are willing to tolerate massive bankruptcies, company liquidations and heavy unemployment, in order for these large numbers of businesses to continue, they have to have a continued supply of workers, which the local population, a mere 2.5 million is simply incapable of providing.
Today, according to the state controlled newspapers, the foreign population of the island has already surpassed 40% of the population. If you accept the fact that state controlled newspapers always lie to make things look rosy (remember that is what Pravda and Isvestia of the former Soviet Union used to do until the Soviet Union collapsed) you could safely assume that it is no less than 50% if not more.
As if this was not bad enough, disaffected and disgruntled Singaporeans displaced by foreigners in his own country, now find that he cannot find jobs anymore, because they are going instead to foreigners. Malay and Indian Singaporeans find themselves in an even worse situation. They simply cannot make themselves understood in buses, public transportation and whole sections of
Realizing that matters are getting worse on the labor front and realizing that the dictatorship which runs the island shows no interest in any dialogue with it's citizens as expected in any democracy, Singaporean locals have decided to withdraw in ever way possible. They emigrate to the west in hoards, they refuse to have any children and they are simply dying of old age. Their numbers in the island continue to free fall and no one can do anything to stop it.
And while all this is going on, the government advised by these idiotic scholars now find themselves in a bind. Having expanded the economy far beyond the capacity of a tiny island with just 2.5 million local born Singaporeans, however much they would want not to do it, they simply have to bring in even more immigrants from China (Lee Kuan Yew dictatorship prefers Chinese over others) to fuel these businesses, without whom the economy will regress, go into a depression and into bankruptcy.
And once one business folds and leaves, like a magnet, the news of it spreads and thousands of businesses will also fold and leave the island. With it foreign investments will also leave and so will ever more educated Singaporeans who have not already left.
I must applaud the efforts of the organizers of a recent protest against the threat of 6.9 million population, but frankly, the government would, I believe, regardless of what anyone else says, go ahead to increase the islands population into a pressure cooker of 6.9 million pickles.
I would recommend any Singaporean who does not wish to live in a dictatorship such as this to live up to his honor and leave the island. Go to
