Ladies and Gentlemen,
There is already a mounting brain drain from the island to the West.
Many are families with young children who do not want to submit their children's education to the Lee Kuan Yew style, you-listen-to-me-or-else style of education where teachers are required to warn their student's not to criticize the government for fear they would be arrested and jailed by their island's Kangaroo courts.
Surely an education is intended not only to teach the child math's and science and English but also the importance of courage, integrity, compassion and a sense of duty and civic conscience.
Most important of all, a child should be taught to stand for his principles and not submit to any tin pot tyrant like that running around in that island today such as Lee Kuan Yew and his son the Prime Minister; not to forget the importance of being able to tell right from wrong and even to stand up to your beliefs even if it meant your life.
Surely the most important quality that a child should have is the ability to form principles and the realization that it is honorable to live up to those ideals and opinions. Surely that is what differentiates a leader from a mere follower. But Lee Kuan Yew's Singapore does not want any leaders, but only followers.
In Singapore where the government is in essence a fascist state which demands under pain of arrest imprisonment or defamation lawsuits that everyone subscribe to the ethos and doctrines of Lee's ruling party, which by the way is indefensible for no other reason than it is based on fascism, not democracy, every single parent and every single teacher in that island out of fear of their government tells their children that they are required to think the way the government wants and simply do as they are told.
In such a society that child is literally brainwashed into thinking that submission to government views is the only safe way to live. The end product of such an education is a person who is incapable of independent thinking and only capable of doing as he is told. This stunting behavior training results in his being able to survive only in a society like Singapore but is completely unequipped if asked to live in western societies where independent thinking is crucial to success.
Singapore parents should remember that Lee Kuan Yew government deliberately has this policy to instill obedience in their children only because such unquestioning human beings are easy to govern than would another society such as Americans or Australian. This as you can see is a deliberate nefarious and pernicious plan to suit themselves. They have no concern whatsoever of the permanent emotional and psychological damage they are causing to your children's mind.
Therefore if any parent in Singapore is reading this blog post, if you can take your child out of Singapore you should do it. Remember the child's young years are crucial in their overall development. The sooner you can leave the better.
If he is a son, take him out before he is liable for national service, simply do not return for enlistment and just stay away from the island. Refusing to do national serviced is not an extraditable offence and the government can simply do nothing to you or your son. They cannot force him to return. As I write thousands and thousands of young Singaporeans have already left the island and Lee Kuan Yew's Singapore is having a hard time trying to fill up their empty army barracks and their schools.
This is an island which is determined to fail by their repressive harebrained policies and I don't think you or I has any duty to educate them. If they are determined to destroy their island through this stupidity, why should I or anyone else stand in their way.
