Singapore's athmosphere of fear produces only spineless timorous youth

Ladies and Gentlemen,

In Singapore the one's who have to bear the butt end of the stick in brainwashing are the weakest and most deserving of a good upbringing, the youth.

Any parent, who has a head on his shoulders must realize that a good son or daughter is someone who can not only read and write, but someone who is capable of thinking, forming their own opinions, the courage to stand up for their beliefs, and if necessary to die for them.

It is with the help of such people, upright men and women, that countries advance, come up with new theories, not only in science and technology, but in morality, philosophy, political theory and government.

And this is where Lee Kuan Yew has failed Singapore completely. In his eagerness to do everything to remain in power, he has deliberately created an island wide atmosphere of fear, that is fear of him, and the need to obey and not question him, and the disastrous consequences for anyone who was stupid enough to challenge him.

As a result of the fear firmly instilled in every parent of every Singaporean child not to question authority, on a daily basis they instill the same fear on their young children. They instruct their children to be careful in what they say about their government making sure that they support Lee Kuan Yew's one party state Singapore.

Since there have been far too many instances almost on a daily basis of citizens being charged for contempt of court if they criticized, defamation lawsuits being filed resulting in astronomical damages jail and bankruptcy for those who espouse alternate theories of government, it makes it almost suicidal for citizens to even engage in normal and justifiable criticism of their government.

The Singaporean children, on top of the brainwashing to blindly submit and conform which they have to endure in their homes, they are subjected to the same demands by their teachers. All teachers in Singapore schools as the parents of their students similarly live in mortal fear of the Lee Kuan Yew's one party state administration.

As they are all civil servants employed by the government, they are aware every minute of the day, that any attempt to embolden the minds of their children to think independently may result in their losing their jobs.

It is inconceivable for any Singaporean teacher to tell their children to think independently and to criticize the government if they felt their government was wrong.

As a result of this general atmosphere of fear in that society, they grow up just as their parents and their teachers, as conformists, able to recite some science and technology but incapable of understanding or debating the policies of the Singapore government, and if necessary, the courage to protest and resist their rulers if need be. They grow up as children and live their entire adult lives like an obedient poodle, who would jump or roll over anytime his master demands.

Many Singaporean parents are in fact aware of the damage being done to their children's minds and to try to correct the harm by sending their children abroad for an education when they are in their twenties. I am afraid to say that in most cases, this does little good. The harm done to their minds at infancy to prop up the Singaporean dictator is usually irreversible.

I am not a child psychologist but I can safely say that the most formative years for a child is when they are toddlers and infants. Unfortunately for them, it is during these formative years that the most damage is done to their minds under Lee Kuan Yew's Singapore.

After they go abroad in their twenties, when their minds have already been molded to conform without question, they are usually incapable of asserting their rights in Western societies where people are expected to be confident and assertive.

As a result they lose out in competing with Europeans and Americans because of their fear  and general insecurity which the Singaporean system has hammered into their young minds.

Since starting this blog, I have had contract with many young men and women from Singapore, who appear to me totally incapable of doing what even normal people from other Western countries can do.

Many write to me about how to immigrate to the West. I tell them that they should first make a trip out to find out the general sense of their intended destination, to do some research and make a go for it. But beyond expecting me to tell them everything, they appear incapable of doing anything on their own. I suppose they are all back there waiting to be told exactly what to do. Whereas someone from any other country would have packed up, left, looked around his new country and found a way to stay.

I don't blame the timidity of these young Singaporeans but as you can see, they are the product of their Singaporean parents and their Singaporean teachers who have to live in fear of their multi-billionaire master Lee Kuan Yew and his son in their island.

My advice for Singaporeans is take your children and emigrate at a young age if you can, so that they would have the benefit of growing up in an open transparent society where there is the rule of law and everyone has a fair chance to excel and reach for the sky.

Unfortunately for those who live in Lee Kuan Yew's Singapore, their idea of those capable of doing any independent thinking are only Lee Kuan Yew and his elite friends  who rule over you. As far as he is concerned, you are incapable of doing any thinking or forming any new ideas because your job is simply to accept and obey without question. Otherwise he will put you in jail.

Not wanting to be personal, I have to say that on the whole, Lee Kuan Yew's Singapore is a stupid place. I don't have any respect for this prize rooster strutting around in his hen cage and bullying everyone in his way and neither do I think he cares for me either. So if you don't want to be thrown in jail and neither do you want your children to be thrown in jail because the bully boy is displeased, the best thing to do is to clear out of Singapore now and let him try to run the place with his Chinese nationals who come temporarily to work in Singapore for some extra money.

I truly agree with you. I too am a victim of Lee Kuan Yew's "communist" education. Thanks to this flawed education system. I had to struggle to develop my own critical thinking within the shortest period of time when I was at Monash University of Melbourne.

You make normal everyday thinking sound as if it is some esoteric technique you have to master. No that's not what I am saying. What I am saying is that Singaporeans are incapable of thinking like any other normal child will think in a democracy.

What I am saying is this. For example, a normal person who thinks that Lee Kuan Yew has no right to abuse the law to silence dissent would openly say so, and protest if need be. A Singaporean child will not.

Again, if someone were to say that you have to kowtow to Lee Kuan Yew, some other child somewhere else may say, why should I? A Singaporean will not.

In other words, a Singaporean child will not be able either to think and act upon what he rationally believes. In fact he ends up incapable of even thinking rationally. That is what I mean by the damage being done to their minds through Lee Kuan Yew's techniques.

Thanks for your comment.

There are regular current affairs programmes from HongKong from my digital TV, and I am impressed with the glut of the HongKongers to stand up for themselves. See news below.

Meanwhile, Sinking-poreans are threating about voting opposition in the 2016 GE. Looks like the threats will continue forever to kick out PAP and have proper democracy.

Tens of thousands braved typhoon rains on Monday to demand China live up to its promise to allow fully democratic elections in Hong Kong in 2017 amid mounting fears of increased meddling by Beijing's Communist Party leaders.
