The TraceTogether saga is another sad – and frightening – chapter of our political history

What’s the big deal, some say? It’ll only be used by the police for criminal investigations. Nothing to fuss about if you’re not anywhere near the underworld. Perhaps.

But there’s also POFMA. Remember all the hand-wringing when the PAP told us something had to be done about deliberate online falsehoods?

Post-legislation, the Act was used by the government even to insist that it’s interpretation of statistical data is the true and correct one, leaving the “offending” party to seek redress through the courts if it disputes the state’s assertion – a process that is thoroughly onerous in terms of funds and time.

Then there’s the complete shutdown of space for political dissent – and even for not-so-political actions. Name me one other government that prosecutes a lone activist carrying a placard with Mr Smiley on it.

But like the TT matter, you say, what’s the big deal if you’re not into posting anything that might be remotely of public interest or that you’ll just stay clear of carrying any placards.
But here’s why it matters – and matters to you and your family.

The use of TT other than exclusively for Covid19 matters, the constriction of online space, the throttling of even the most benign of political dissent, the employment of defamation laws, the castigation of academics, just to cite a few examples, cast a long and pernicious shadow on Singaporeans’ psyche.

When people know they are being watched and sanctioned, self-censorship becomes the norm. It becomes baked into society’s culture.

And here’s when it gets really dangerous: We think and behave as if such censorship, whether state- or self-imposed, is not just normal but necessary.

Generations of citizens have been told that without such officially proscribed and prescribed views, we become ungovernable. Such control ensures unity lest society degenerates into disrepair and chaos. Besides, we are Asian and so value community over self – government-speak for the notion that people need to be lorded over.

Through decades of such inculcation, thinking among the people has become limited and stunted. Anyone and everyone who colours outside the lines becomes a subject for censure and punishment.

Let me be clear: For a modern society to function, there must be law and order. But I repeat, the rule of law and the respect for order need not result in the kind of censorship that we have here in Singapore.

The freedom to think and express ourselves, to peacefully assemble and to form associations are not niceties to have. They are rights indelibly written into our Constitution. They are, obviously, not absolute but they may also not be expurgated just because the ruling party finds it politically advantageous to do so.

Not only are these rights constitutionally mandated, they are freedoms crucial to our continued progress as a nation.

The dismal state of our nation today did not come about by accident. It is the result of decades of control imposed by a powerful few within one political party, control that has resulted in our collective mind-rot.

This has produced worryingly deficient outcomes. Whether it is economic performance, mental health, suicide rate, birth rate, emigration rate, outlook of our youths, labour productivity, wage levels – national indicators hardly signal a future of hope and confidence.
On the future of our economy in particular, I’ve said it elsewhere and I’ll repeat it here: political rights and economic development occupy two sides of the same coin. You can’t have the latter without the former, especially not at this juncture of our nation’s development given the exponential rise of technology.

With widespread and deep-seated censorship, we cannot compete in the world of innovation where the clash of ideas and challenge of orthodoxies are the norm. Whether it is in commerce, scientific inquiry or the arts, freedom of expression is to progress what flour is to bread. Conformist thinking, on the other hand, is a one-way ticket to irrelevance and obscurity.

Censorship and progress, if it needs to be said, are mortal enemies.

We are on the last legs of an unsustainable, rentier economy propped up by an ossified political system long past its expiry date. No matter how many foreigners we bring in and regardless of the number of them we convert to citizens, with a society and political culture that threatens rather than inspires and stymies rather than motivates, this country is on a gradual but inexorable decline.

When our society was young, we were talked to like children. But as society grows up, we must discard our childish ways of thinking and behave in a manner befitting an intelligent and mature people.

The sooner we realise that this autocratic system robs us of our future, the sooner we can start building a quality life for our nation, our loved ones and ourselves.

If society is going to imagine a vibrant future, if our younger generations are going to be among the leaders of the world, and if our citizens aspire to live fulfilled lives, then we need to embark on the urgent road of reform.

Pushing back against the TT U-turns, the POFMAs, the criminalisation of political action – that is, standing up to the autocrats – are a good and necessary start. But more, much more, needs to be done.

    What’s new? I’ve spoken of worse abuse of power which Chee hasn’t even realised…………Chee toking cok about “ossified political system long past its expiry date”, when he himself has “ossified” himself all these years?

    Ask Chee, even long b4 POFMA, TT-token etc, what has Chee contributed in so far as his ideas/opinions/views about the development of SINKaPOOR?

    I can rubbish Chee even more………remember the term used to describe him: “congenital liar and a cheat”; “too clever by half” etc…………but more importantly what has Chee contributed to the positive SINKaPOOR development when I had been calling out the PAPies’ propaganda over the last 30 years or longer?

  • Armadillo:

    The Apps not only require Bluetooth, it actually also requires the internet connection to regularly obtain TempID or forward dated TempID from the health authority backend.

    It is this data exchanges and internet connection requirement that users were NOT specifically informed though it is covered in the technical papers. This data exchanges with the health authority back-end could be the “Joker Card” with your phone while the software is resident in your phone. For those not technically inclined, it is like a Trojan horse, but the authority will say that it is a good horse but to the community, any horse in your phone is a BAD UNSAFE horse.

    Using the Apps is therefore pronouncedly unsafe in this regard for the basic reason that such “secret” communication with the govt body is largely unknown, not guaranteed and the public were not informed of its requirement.

    Please inform this to all your READERS and ask the alternative parties to question the authority in the Parliament.

    I would advise everyone to delete or uninstall the Apps from their phone and only use the token. I think there is a reason why it is always out of stock – YOUR PHONE AND DATA “could” be the prize.

    Hope it helps.

    The power of mass exodus can be learned from the recent mass exodus of dropping Whatsapp. They are forced to postpone the mandatory “kick off” if you do not agree to their new privacy terms from 8Feb to 15May2021.

    This is just one of an ongoing series of despotic measures for mass surveillance and control. Like in the USSR and China. Nothing to do with CoVID.

    They know where you are, who you spoke to, who you are with and what you think. That is enough to make you a target if they ‘think’ you are a ‘threat’.
    They can arrest you for crimes you have not yet committed – using your phone information as ‘proof. Remember Parthi? Anything can be used against you and the next time there will be no upright judge to question the ‘law’.

    Social credit system like China and vaccination passports are coming. You can see it. This is to ensure the regime stays in power no matter what. Whne these are all tied in to Tracetogether and made mandatory – good luck to stupid sinkies.

    Plus we have ‘Ballsless Leeder of Opposition’ the Untrustworthy Pritam who was so sympathetic to VB for this small oversight on what the TraceTogether is used together. It might as well be 87-0 in parleement.

  • PAP mandate strong:

    Firstly hundreds of our frontline workers been vaccinated.

    Second, yes the current vaccine is not a silver bullet or magic bullet.
    Even after vaccination one may still contract covid19 ( may still fall sick like a general flu ) but it reduces the probability of seriousness and death.

    Understanding of the current virus is still very preliminary.

  • What have you contributed ?:

    @Realistically

    You asked what have Dr Chee Soon Juan contributed ? I am a 70 plus years old ex NSman and am not a member of SDP or any political party. I am just a normal citizen

    From what I have seen, Dr Chee and his wife both have Phd and yet they are living in a 3 rm HDB flat and driving second hand car. Just kook at the sacrifices they have made. Dr Chee have also been in and out of prison many times for not agreeing with the PAP party.

    He is the type that will not give up and willing to die fighting. His contribution is his sacrifice and showing to the younger generation eg the Reservists and NS man who are trained by the SAF not to be afraid of dying fighting against the PAP as everybody will die sooner or later.

    Now the BIG question is Have you been in jail before ? and What have you personally contributed such as sacrificing your freedom and life if necessary ?

    So what that U R 70 years old……….U dun even realise how gullible U and the rest of the SDP clowns are………….sorry, but that’s the reality judging from Chee Soon Juan being rejected time and again at the GEs he had contested.

    U ask what I have contributed? U must be hibernating in Mars not to know what I have contributed………..which of course is not surprising.

    You might like to go to the National Library to look up the 1 May 1998 issue of the Straits Times to know that I HAD got the CPF Board to change its ‘NO CONTRARY’ policy………I doubt U know about investment under the CPFIS scheme. Last Tharman Shanmugaratnam revealed in Parliament when he was the Finance Minister was that there were, at that time, almost ONE MILLION CPFIS members.

    You might also like to go to the NLB to check who had made the longest representation which was NOT published to the Parliament Select Committee on the amendment to the Land Titles (Strata) Act when it was presented as the Bill………………I doubt U know what is strata title……………..

    You might also like to find out from the emperor without clothes who the emperor had in mind during the X-examination during the emperor’s defamation trial against Leong Sze Hean………………I doubt you even bothered…………..NOT LEAST YOU HAVE NO BALLS to post in your own name……………YOU must be Chee Soon Juan himself………..lah……….which ONLY serves him right for the voters to REJECT him time and again………….F#@%king PATHETIC scum.

    As to Chee’s comments originally, the MOST IMPORTANT issue arising is that the emperor without clothes has BETRAYED THE TRUST AND CONFIDENCE of sinkies in ANY govt. scheme………..much much much more than Chee’s out of date comments about the (mis)use of the TT data………..once again Chee shows his utter lack of critical thinking skill, if he even has the normal thinking skill of ordinary sinkies….

  • Why Fight With Another Oppo?:

    @Realistically

    First of all, I confirmed that I am NOT Dr Chee Soon Juan. I dare you to bet with me on this for S$500,000 ? Are you brave enough to accept ?

    You dare to take on the PAP but Why haven’t you been in Jail before ? Unless You are a PAP IB supporter.

    I do not support any politician or any party at all. I support Singapore and I was willing to die for Singapore under LKY when I was in NS.

    I do not know how old you are but you seems to like to look down on others and very proud of your knowledge. I think I have tasted more salt than you have tasted rice and I have gone through those things you mentioned.

    I am very annoyed to see an Oppo fighting another Oppo. Why can’t you all be united to take on the PAP which is not doing a proper job in Singapore.

    Dr Chee is still fighting on and the consequences you can see in the last GE where more people are supporting the Oppo.

    I can predict that the Oppo will win East Coast GRC and the West Coast GRC and Dr Chee, Lim Tean, Dr Paul Tambyah etc will win more votes in the next election.

    Unless you are a camouflaged PAP Supporter, please be a good Singaporean and support all Oppo to kick out the PAP as they have brainless leaders who do harm to Singaporeans eg recommend Poly Diploma holders to be hawkers.

    Sorry, I don’t like it any better than anyone else, but Chee Soon Juan wants to character assassinate me, despite stealing my idea which I had made to then PAP Chairman & Health Minister Khaw Boon Wan about spending more from the returns from our reserves.

    Chee Soon Juan has FAILED to observe the basic common decency one would expect from a leader of a so-called oppo party……….and has been astrosurfing in his attempt to make baseless accusations and complete lack of bona fide…………..and we can see that he has FAILED time and again in GE.

    I suggest, as I’ve posted in another thread that TRE (and TOC) should BAN Chee from spouting his dishonest spiel …………. SINKaPOOR and sinkies SUFFER from the so-called oppo failures……….even TRE Techie has talked about such so-called oppos as CHARLATANS……………..sad, but that’s the REALITY.

    I have stated very clearly who I am……….and I repeat that my name is BIN HEE HENG…………….clearly being dealt the TRAVESTIES OF JUSTICE as in the CA judgment [2020] SGCA 4….

    Chee leh? Hiding behind different monikers………and to what good?

    I have emailed the SDP’s John Tan offering my help in their POFMA appeal, but not taken up……..obviously because Chee thinks he is too clever by half………rather than call out the travesties of justice of the judiciary which affects EVERYONE on the emperor without clothes BLACKLIST as to how he would “FIX” his critics/opponents…………but Chee only cares for himself as everyone can see ……….despite my many constructive contributions to the betterment of sinkies and SINKaPOOR……..besides those mentioned, I have also made others, which Chee and his SDP (and of course the wayang-party) have shown ZILCH.

    As ANYONE, least of all those at TRE, would know, I have refrained from criticising Chee Soon Juan and had been a supporter for many many years………..I had also asked Chee at his launch of the SDP GE 2020 campaign at the Mandarin Hotel in February 2019 about how the SDP would fund their so-called social programs WITHOUT any satisfactory answer except Chee’s empty talk about productivity……….this was reported in the TODAY newspaper the next day……….so my identity has been known to the SDP all along and yet try to tar me that I don’t hv the courage of posting in my own name.

    While Chee has been so full of himself thinking he is too clever by half, the SDP’s former Chairman the late Mr Gandhi Ambalam, if I remember his name correctly, had acknowledged my presence at numerous SDP event, BUT Chee had NEVER even say hello to me even once.

    Please try and understand the background and Chee’s total lack of honesty………which was why LKY used the terms “CONGENITAL LIAR and a CHEAT” being “TOO CLEVER BY HALF”

    If sinkies and especially the TRE moderators would care to remember, I had said that sometime around the 2006 GE and at an SDP organised event at the previous Catholic High Primary School at Waterloo Street, I had told the meeting that SINKaPOOR’s economic model was unsustainable…………..BUT, as usual, Chee Soon Juan who has always think that he is TOO CLEVER BY HALF and that I’ve no credentials to my name as he saw it………..and I hv stated above what I have contributed in so far as the management of strata titled units – for those ignorant sinkies, an example of strata title units is the privately developed CONDOs and include those executive developments by HDB which would be granted private status after 10 years – since 1985/6 and also the CPFIS ‘no contra’ rule which were much more significant and affect more sinkies than what Low Thia Khiang had claimed about his getting the NEA to attend to the midges problem at his Bedok constituency.

    Chee and his SDP could have benefited from my input, but being too clever by half, he didn’t give a damn to what I had said.

    Around this time last year, I had mentioned that Lawrence Wong had even personally emailed me on the 2nd day of Chinese New Year, but Chee betraying his dishonesty as usual twisted what I said to claim that Lawrence Wong was only proficient in the maintenance of swimming pools!

    As I hv said in another current thread, TRE(and TOC) should reflect on the HARM Chee and the wayang-party had done to sinkies and SINKaPOOR by their continuing to allow Chee and the wayang-party to sell their s*ake oil filth so that they could continue to enjoy their $16k monthly MP allowance at the expense of sinkies and SINKaPOOR.

    I had, after the July 2020 GE thought about taking a break in commenting on TRE, but found the Parti Liyani and LSF’s case worthy of commenting in the hope that ALL sinkies would be better treated…………….but it looks like the self-interests of the wayang-party and Chee’s SDP took all precedence.

  • Realistically:

    The 158th ranked ST published on its FRONT page, the WHO criticisms of the poor handling of the COVID-19 pandemic AT THE BEGINNING of the outbreak, thus validating my criticisms of the STUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUPIIIIIIIIIIIIDDDDDDDDDDDDDDIIIIIIIIIIIIIITTTTTTTTTTTTTYYYYYYYYYY of the emperor without clothes saying that the wearing of facial masks did not protect the wearer and his callous disregard for effective policies which Taiwan had implemented from the very beginning from late December 2019 while the emperor without clothes was more pre-occupied with holding a snap GE.

    Yet Chee Soon Juan has the gall to ask what contributions I have made, when he himself has made absolutely NONE……….purposely refusing to acknowledge my constructive and valid criticisms of the emperor without clothes failed policies while he had resorted to STEALING my ideas…………a TOTALLY DISHONEST and lacking in basic decency of a civilised person, what’s more a person who aspires to be a Parliamentarian……………..shows out his despicable character of being a CONGENITAL LIAR AND A CHEAT and who thinks he is too clever by half……….No wonder the electorate has rejected him and his SDP GE after GE (including BE)
