Freedom of Speech & Expression

There are actually quite a lot of “Mini~LKY” in Singapore, especially in the civil service, PAP and even opposition camp.

Some people may find it surprising that opposition camp, which is supposed to oppose PAP dictatorial rule and promote Freedom of Speech and Expression, could in fact be mimicking LKY’s authoritarian style of intolerance towards opposing views which results in curbing the freedom of expression and speech in Singapore.

But in reality, I find more Mini~LKY in Singapore opposition in my two decades of involvement in opposition politics.

Intolerance of differences and opposing views reflects the true values of a person, regardless of whatever wayang assertions to uphold Democratic principles.

I made a promise to

This is why most people observe that I have rather high tolerance level in managing my Facebook or any social media platform. I would hardly ban any person from my FB unless they use vulgarity and are totally disrespectful to others expressing views on my FB. Or they are just trolls who are out to disrupt meaningful discussions…. but for that, they are normally banned or removed from my friend list after repeated complains or pleads made by other users on my FB. myself to be a person truthful to my Democratic belief as ever. Never should I become another intolerant Mini~LKY in opposition politics.

It is not easy to live according to your political beliefs and not just paying lip service in repeating slogans of Democracy.

Democracy is not just an idea or ideal, it should be our way of life.

  • Harder Truths:

    Asians all live and work in a top down fashion – the higher up you are the more people must obey you and are wrong. Does not matter if India, China, Indonesia, $G or Korea – Asians behave the same.

    In western countries, where democracy was born and prctised, the mentality is different. That’s why no matter how much ‘democracy’ you give Asians, the end result will always be the same – some kind of inflexible authoritarian rule.

    Even the opposition will become another MIW party given time when there are no checks and balances. But $G people prefer it that way.

    Well said, Mike. Even Taiwan Democratic Progressive Party set their own rules after winning elections.

    Year 2012, Tsai/her Democratic party said beef from ractopamine-fed cows is poisoned cow, harmful to human health and unsafe for consumption.

    After winning election, year 2020, Tsai/her Democratic party said pork from ractopamine-fed pig is NOT poisoned pigs, NOT harmful to human health and SAFE for consumption.

    See, Democratic Tsai set their own rules after winning election.

    Exactly. Singaporeans are just like Hong Kong lawyer Martin Lee.

    Then he who will be given his Record in his right hand will say: “Here is my Record! (19) “Surely, I always believed that I shall meet my own Account!” (20) And he shall be given a new life, most satisfying. (21) In a lofty Paradise, (22) The fruits in bunches of which will be hanging low and near at hand. (23)
    Eat and drink at ease for that which you have sent on before yourself in the days gone by! (24)

    But as for him who will be given his Record in his left hand, he will say: “I wish that I had never been given my Record! (25) “And that I had never known my own Account! (26)
    “It would be best I had reached my end (death)! (27) “My wealth has not availed me; (28) “My powers have departed from me!” (29)
    (But it will be pronounced): “Seize him and chain him up; (30) Then cast him into the blazing Fire.(31) Fasten him with a chain seventy cubits in length!” (32)
    Verily, he chose not to heed God Almighty (33) And he ignored the feeding of the poor. (34) So no friend has he upon this Day, (35) Nor any food except for the filth oozing from his own wounds, (36)
    None will eat that except for the hopeless transgessors and evil ingrates. (37)

    I think Simon Lim already kena sacked by Lim Tean. He can’t join the PAP because he is over the hills and beyond. Too fcuking old in another word. More importantly, he is too stupid. Well, I suggest he join his comrade Teo Soh Lung in Function 8. Or, he can continue to masturbate in Hong Lim Park, whenever the opportunity arises. But I don’t any sane opposition or civic organisation would trust this old and balding Ah Pek speak truth. Might as well listen to a second hand used-car dealer sales pitch. Even the name Simon Lim is as fake as perfumes used by prostitutes in Desker Road.

    THOSE WHO STAND ON THE ROSTRUM shouting advocacy of authoritarian causes/domination is either IGNORANT of history or they CHOOSE TO IGNORE the realities of history or both.

    Under STALIN’s first Five-Year Plan of 1928-1933, millions of peasants were to be moved to urban areas (and to the concentration camps known as the gulag), and their farmland was to be brought under state control; its product was to be sold abroad or used to feed the growing cities. When famine struck, unknown millions died in Russia and Ukraine the then most prolific “farmland” of the Russia alone lost 3.9 million dead from starvation.

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/outlook/the-deliberate-starvation-of-millions-in-ukraine/2017/11/03/0999f2d0-b8bb-11e7-be94-fabb0f1e9ffb_story.html

    It was one of history’s worst political atrocities other than holocaust.

    The same “MISTAKE” was repeated in China’s own Great Leap Forward almost 3 decades later.

    NY Times : The Cultural Revolution had roots in the 1958-61 Great Leap Forward, the collectivization of agricultural and industrial output that precipitated a famine that left as many as 45 million dead. Mao was blamed and partly sidelined by Communist Party leaders who pulled back some of the most extreme collectivization efforts.

    https://www.nytimes.com/2016/05/15/world/asia/china-cultural-revolution-explainer.html

    And that again was repeated in Fidel Castro’s so-called GREAT REVOLUTIONARY
    OFFENSIVE barely a decade later in 1968.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fidel_Castro

    Dictatorship only hears what they like to hear, never the truth or its realities of damage impact. Neither do they rectify – POLITICS AND GOVERNMENTS, like I said often CREATE PROBLEMS and leave that to work out of its dire consequences onto the powerless peasants.

    Authoritarian rule pretends that they alone has the monopoly of wisdom and all information.

    IT NEVER WAS AND NEVER WILL BE.

    Democracy is not perfect (hijacked by some pigs of liberalism), it is the best we have got. Authoritarian rule is simply not sustainable of economic and natural forces.

    Authoritarian rules were never permanent, it is always a team behind the curtain, the oligarchy, the poster boy changes.

    That’s also the reason why i am supportive of people legally own their fire-arms (in ancient times, knife and swords, hammer and axes).

    @ Mike

    THANKS FOR THE REJOINDER – authoritarian rules do last decades BUT INFLICTED AN ENORMOUS AMOUNT OF DAMAGE to society they governed.

    J. Stalin, Mao, Castro, Pahlavi Shah, N. Ceausescu were all guilty of monstrosity unlimited.

    It is hard to speculate how the world could have been a better place without them in history or how the world have become a “better” place the world is learning from their failed historical chapters of power and greed grab.

    @ Mike, I am glad that Berlin Wall fallen, the Shah toppled, Gorbachev turned to Perestroika and glasnot and Deng Xiao Ping resurrected from his political graveyard and the son of Fidel Castro discarded his father’s legacy politics.

    AUTHORITARIANISM AS YOU POINTED OUT IS NEVER PERMANENT as I also commented.

    In truth, Trump politics/Trumponomics was beneficial to me financially WITHOUT ANY EFFORT on my part, but what about the rest and civilisation now hit by a cyclone of covid-19 pandemic?

    The Covid-19 pandemic was NOT his fault but he politicised it – first the denial and then play catch-up after the damage ravaged America, endangering the risks further escalations within and then world-wide. The world is fighting a containment fire so to speak and Trump politics/economics is fanning the prairie fire wind.

    And now what? Resurgence of virus spread in Europe, new mutations of unknown risks of further mutation down the track (???) of new strains in UK and South Africa – just as vaccine (of unknown durable potency lasting and risks of cultivating new strains from mutations later (of these vaccine now flooding the world of risks experimentation) – all speaks to Trump’s incompetence handling.

    The financial costs to US (and the world too) is further lock down, businesses collapse and dislocations – will burnt budgetary holes in trillions of spending blowout, more “stimulus” spending of fake GDP recovery, and untold misery for those harmed.

    Deglobalisation impact is still counting… I thank god he lost the election.

    @ Mike

    I SHOULD REMIND ALL AGAIN, authoritarianism CANNOT SURVIVE the tyranny of natural force and economic realities.

    oxygen: Authoritarian rule is simply not sustainable of economic and natural forces.

    The pandemic fire around the world proves my point.

    Trumponomic plays with depressed interest rate fiddling – arm twisting of the Fed – but the CURRENCY MARKET WHICH IS OUTSIDE THE AUTHORITY AND POWER CONTROL OF STUPID TRUMP, burnt his a*se silently and he could only watch in silent and shut of twitter-like mouth.

    The US$ took a 12% hair-cut in Trump’s first year of political office and now again in 2020 (just ahead of the election) as the covid-1p pandemic fire CANED him.

    IF YOU GO BACK TO ECONOMIC HISTORY of the days of fixed exchange rate policies – A DEVALUATION of any currency by a magnitude of 8% or 8% plus plus is AN ELEPHANT size caning forced upon the crushed economy forced to make that painful adjustment.

    So the totality of Trumponomics “achievement” or “disaster” (by my judgment) reads something like this

    - 12% devaluation of the US$ within one calendar year when Trump administration was inaugurated.

    - Janet Yellen worked her butt to bring it back to recovery level closer to Trump’ss pre-inauguration days (Obama’s era) only

    - to be busted again by another 12% devaluation of US$ as Trump’s incompetent handling (Fed forced to take easy monetary policies to counteract its impact) got brutally punished by the currency market.

    I HATE TO REPEAT THIS – TRUMP IS A FAILURE AND TRUMPONOMIC IS A DISASTER by his AUTHORITARIAN rule.

    Trump surrounded himself with idiots, even criminal characters, cronies who are there for theatres and for themselves and fired those who are deliberately competent of patriotic services (including at least 3 National Security Advisers, FBI director, Fed Chair, his attorney general, even sidelining Dr Fauci).

    ECONOMIC AND NATURAL FORCES OUTLAST TRUMP’S AUTHORITARIAN RULE.

    The clearest freedom of speech and expression have been expressed by Macpherson voters when they made you the worst losing veteran opposition in recent election history. I can’t remember a time where a 19-year opposition veteran winning less then 30% votes. Unlike Chee Soon Juan who had been slandered and demonised by the MSM for years, you have so far been spared of that treatment by the MSM. Yet nearly 70% of the Macpherson voters do not trust you. Let me sing the Michael Jackson song for you—-BEAT IT!

    “They told you don’t you ever come around here,
    Don’t wanna see your face you better disappear.

    So BEAT IT! Just BEAT IT!”

    Maybe your “high tolerance level” should be extended to your way of dealing with fellow oppositions. As observed by many people, so far only you and KJ are very fond of taking digs especially at WP. It’s not that we don’t understand your grudge towards WP. But you will not hesitate to take every opportunity to shoot them when given the chance. It is also precisely because of this sickening habit that pissed voters off. And now you claim to have “high tolerance level”. Don’t make my cock laugh lah!
