This is what Singaporeans do not realise

I was sued by the Singapore prime minister, fired from my job for political reasons and later the police ransacked my home for supporting the opposition.

I was made out to be a bad person.

Then in 2017, academic Donald Low was threatened with his job.

Then last year, the prime minister sued Leong Sze Hian.

Then, the police also ransacked Terry Xu’s home.

Are all these bad people too?

After I’ve been sued, sacked, charged, had my home ransacked and persecuted from 2014 to 2016, I have since then seen more and more Singaporeans go through what I did.

With each of them, I understand their pain and the injustice they had to go through.

Because it was what I had to go through too. From once being valued at work and school, I became disavowed.

But then, the people I mentioned above aren’t as bad as the person I am. They are people who continue to be respected in what they do. Yet they have had their lives hurt and slammed by the PAP.

They won’t be the last. I’ve seen people been hurt by the PAP every year since I was persecuted, and I know it will keep going on.

Then it reminded me, before I was persecuted, I had thought about the “troublemakers” before me. Why are they so stupid to get into trouble? Why can’t they do things in other ways?

Why did they have to get themselves sued by the prime minister? Why did they have to get themselves jailed? Opposition politicians like JBJ and Chee Soon Juan, lawyers like Soh Lung Teo, church workers like Vincent Cheng why must they find trouble with the government?

But then one day, after I was sued, someone asked the same question to me, someone very close.

Why must you go and find trouble with the government, she asked me.

And then I became the “troublemaker”.

It was funny listening to the “troublemaker” label used on me. I remembered that when I attended talks after I was sued, people saw me and thought I was going to start throwing chairs. The look in their eyes, it was funny.

But of course, I asked serious questions. You can ask Tharman at one of the CPF talks I attended. He answered back quite stably too. Well, he wasn’t threatened, was he?

But after going through all these, knowing how the government can come after you and make you a such a bad person, even beyond what you’ve ever known of yourself, and to even make me question myself, this made me finally understand what these other “troublemakers” were going through, and who they are.

When I first met Vincent Cheng, he was such a soft-spoken and sincere person, when I first met Soh Lung, such a passionate and helpful person! Chee Soon Juan also came across very smart and measured.

After going through what I have, I began to understand the lives of others who had gone through what I have before me.

And I also understand the pain of others who have gone after me. And I still see people being hurt by the PAP year after year. People who have to leave the country, people who have to try to fight to clear their name, people who had live their lives honestly.

You don’t really get it until you become one of the people where overnight, you are given a new label, where you become a criminal simply for standing up for what you believe in.

Does it make me angry? Maybe. Does it make me sad? Maybe. But much of this is all in the past now.

But it does make me wonder when Singaporeans will ever realise their power. It does make me angry that Singaporeans do not want to think about this.

If I do not think about society, nothing will happen to me. Exactly what they wanted.

To keep you quiet. If you keep quiet, I don’t have to change policies to make lives better.

Do you remember the story of the bundle of sticks? When the father in Aesop’s Fables got his sons to break the sticks individually, the sticks broke easily, but when he got his sons to break the sticks when bundled together, they could not.

What Singaporeans do not realise that together you are the bundle of stick, and you will always be.

The PAP takes a stick out now and then from this bundle, break it, and the rest of you sticks shudder.

But what you do not realise is that when you shudder, you are shuddering with the other sticks next to you. You are in that bundle of sticks, and that makes you strong.

They cannot break all of you, so they break one stick now and then. And if you stop letting them break you one by one, you can stop them.

This is what Singaporeans do not realise. You are powerful and you are strong.

I wish you would remember that.

  • pap is a clan of S$m liars:

    Mr Roy, remember this. there is a maker in heaven. the pap Ljs and pap Cbs and the INDIAN malay milo in istana all must account for every word and every deed they have made. no exception.

    Of course, with their ownself pay ownself S$m, the pap Ljs and pap Cbs and the INDIAN malay milo in instana all think their life is set and nothing will be wrong since they have the legally stolen S$m via a pliant parleeement.

    WRONG.

    They shall need to account for every word and every deed. no exception.

    What is our solace? in that we shall all meet again some day, sooner or later, on the other side. we guarantee the pap pioneer S$m liar lky is repenting every moment of his dead life when we meet him on the other side.

    Meet us at the cul de sac? nah. he is busy repenting every moment of his dead life. he ain’t got any time to review his lie about meeting at the cul de sac. this lky is not Dr Mahatir. Dr Mahatir delivers. lky lies.

    Mr Ngerng, what the oppo do not realise is that they are just a stick in the bundle and unless they unite and by doing so they will be strong and it will not be picked and break.

    Singaporeans don’t have the courage nor a sense of social justice in them to support you.
    It’s not that you are wrong.
    It’s just that everyone is afraid to show you support.

    This civilisation will get replaced by the 5million new immigrants.

  • opposition dude:

    Roy, you have been sued and all that so you know what exactly the government is capable of. That lawyer was pretty smart to just zoom in on you defaming the good for nothing PM, then again lawyers are good at just focusing on just one thing to make it look serious.

    The PAP deals with all threats the same way, this is their way of sending a clear message to any would be “troublemaker”. You aren’t wrong to say that we have got the power to teach PAP a lesson. In fact we used this power in 2011 and 2013 to make them lose seats. Let us hope that this same power can bring desired results this year too.

    So look forward Roy, don’t look back since you can’t change the past. No point getting angry or disappointed since you can’t change anything. Look forward and most importantly, do not make the same mistake again since it did cost you your job and a monthly payment to you know who.

    We all know that a critical mass are unable to retire and receive monthly CPF payouts. But almost all of these dare not protest.

    Likewise, we know many fundamentally supports Roy and alternative parties. But most of them are too timid, lacking courage to be able to afford People Power to support Roy. So they let Roy be destroyed without being helped.

    What goes around comes around.
    The weak people power has a karmic effect on the people.

    1. If you lose money due to hyflux, you can forget about the people standing up to demand for the powers to help you.

    2. If you get retrenched, who will speak out for you?

    3. If you cannot get payout, who is left to speak out for you?

    The list can be endless.

    I showed you peasants why Cause and Effect is real. Karma. When they finally come for you, there is no one left to help you. Your cowardice ensured all those who stuck their necks out for you were destroyed.

    A weak people power a CHOICE MADE BY THE WEAK PEOPLE. ONLY THE PEOPLE CAN EFFECT PEOPLE POWER. FEAR IS A CHOICE WHETHER YOU ACCEPT OR YOU CAN REJECT IT. PEOPLE POWER CANNOT BE OUTSOURCED EVEN THOUGH IN COWARDICE YOU DESPERATELY WANT TO. DEMOCRCAY NEVER EXIST WITHOUT PEOPLE POWER. THERE IS NO INDEPENDENT CHECK AND BALANCE WITHOUT PEOPLE POWER.

    THE BIGGEST PROBLEM IS THE PEOPLE AND NOT SO MUCH THE PAPAYAS.

  • Weakest Link in Democracy:

    Dear Roy, our fighter for democracy.
    We all miss you and care for you.

    Allow me to share my thoughts on why Singaporeans have weak people power.

    1. People Power does not come from an authority or office. There is no office called people power with power.
    It can only be a collective force initiated by the people themselves.
    But history has shown that the people dare not afford people power. They are all waiting for someone to give them permission . The Constitution allows them this freedom. But this does not mean they have the COURAGE to effect it.

    2. FEAR is a Choice.
    One can be afraid or one can choose not to be. Singaporeans chose to be afraid. Why is being afraid is wrong? Because in a democracy, the gov should be afraid of the people and no the people afraid of the gov. People should respect a good gov but not be terribly afraid of it. Why should one be suppressing ones views out of being afraid? Ones views should be free to be expressed without fear.

    3. Singapore allows gov to be voted out or lose several seats. But the people so not want to. Many are afraid of votes being tracked. But the VOTE IS SECRET. Anyone who checks who we voted is breaking the law. But this fear is regarded as truth happening. This is what’s wrong with the people’s thinking.
    A. They believe votes are traced. This means someone breaking the law.
    So why do they accept it? By not confronting the issue out of fear, they are the CAUSE of the perpetuation of the problem. They CAN stop it but they don’t question. They don’t dare to.

    B. If Vote is no longer a secret and someone has illegally done something to our votes, what else could they do to the votes? I am not saying this is happening but I am saying by the flawed logic of the people, the whole system is corrupt. Then they still never use their people power to stop or question. This is what’s wrong with this timid citizenry.

    4. I am not against the gov.
    I am against the Weak People.
    I am being sabotaged by them.
    Alternative parties cannot win no matter how good they are because of timid citizenry.
    The citizenry can vote them out in every GE or make them lose some seats eg a by-election. But they dare not. So no mater laws implemented, the people still could have voted them out or let them lose a few more seats. But they don’t. They are the BIGGEST problem. The WEAKEST LINK I’m democracy is the People. No matter how bad a gov can be, given elections, the people can vote for change.So the gov is not the weakest link. It’s the people.

    Last but not least, I URGE WE FOCUS ON THE BALLOT BOX. LASER FOCUS OUR EYES ON THE BOX.

    Mr Roy,

    First of all, the people need to be educated and realisation that the statement 民主不能當飯吃 is not true. Including taiwan who may give in to China ???

    What can be eaten is only food and fruits or not healthy stuff e.g. tibits tio boh ! Whether communism , democracy or facism or whatever system … All cannot be eat. Cannot mixed.

  • Jewel of a Prostate:

    SingPoreans find that being afraid , very afraid of the gov , to be very afraid to speak against the establishment is how Life should be.

    They are like the Chinese citizens of China. Present and past China. Imperial China.

    Singaporeans are mainly Chinese. It’s to no surprise that sg citizenry are so authority-fearing to the point of giving up people power.

    China people have never asked for democracy. Likewise Singapore Chinese. Of course there are small numbers who do. Eg. Roy . But the super majority never demanded for democracy. The right to vote was never demanded by the people. It was given to them. They never said they want it.

    53years have shown, the Singapore Chinese are OK to have no people power. They are in to be very afraid of authority. The concept of public servant the people fear the public servants.

    Using the Bible, churches tell people to fear and obey the Lord God. Which in itself is a good thing. But somehow, Christians through social conditioning (?) also learned to fear the govt. Churches are full of people who work for govt. You do the math.

    Some pastors even try to justify PAP policies with the Bible. Hope they don’t practise idolatry by worshiping them as well.
