Are Singaporeans living in a climate of fear?

There are rules and regulations one has to abide in every walks of life. In school, there are disciplines a student has to observe. At workplace, there are ethics, rules and regulations a worker or staff has to abide. Top and middle management have to ‘keep mum’ on whatever deals or forward thinking and blah, blah, blah. At home, depending on the kind of parents– ‘not to wash dirty linens in public places’. Every institution has its ‘boundaries and parameters’!

What is freedom of speech? Is freedom of speech not self-censorship? To say that will encourage and build…or freedom of speech means we can say anything…even to the extent of ‘murdering’ — pardon me slandering another and behave like some immature and spoilt brats?

Why are there no credible opposition parties in Singapore?

JB Jeyeratnam in his eighties is on news that he will run the opposition camp. My question is what has he constructively contributed or build up to show in his community or wherever he is in? Is he one of those who talk…talk…talk…and nothing concrete to back up his credential or contribution?

The best and most credible opposition party member I know of — Mr Chiam See Tong. I respect this gentleman for sticking his guts all those years and for his Potong Pasir constituency who stood by him. The dwellers suffered to a measure in terms of ‘being provided for or entitled to or rights’ as citizens. This is one flaw of the ruling party — punished the constituency for not voting them in.

Is this not life? The survival of the fittest?

Do we know how to beat a given situation with prudence and wisdom?

    Singaporeans…just basic no culture humans, now proceeding into politics by their basic instinct. I guess Mr Lee would have never expected the ‘skilled’ wolves for the kill is coming a big round to do some major destruction.

    The coming fight is pretty 无奈. There shall be no winner… untill eventually, something happens, and the little world change again.

    Let ’em be. It’s… seriously not our problem, since it is not within our power to do much.

    I have been watching this show since a kid, it’d get exciting. But it’s best that I watch from far far away.

  5. elfred: Singapore needs a new generation of perceptive n thinking young like yourself to make some real change…not ones ‘beating the air’. I’m still waiting for more posts on your blog though. C U.
