The same tyrannical approach to a somewhat similar problem

Well done PAP for the passing of FICA, a legislation any dictator would be proud of. And in world record time.

Well done *Law Society of Singapore.* You are as silent as the graveyard, an epitaph to hang at your registered office door.

Well done PAP MPs. *Not a single voice of dissent, difference of opinion.* I can understand the *Whip* that mandates you making a party vote. But you are allowed to voice your opinions. You have no opinions? Did you even attempt to *speak to your constituents for feedback* before you went to Parliament to take your naps? Or I get it, FICA is so boring, you guys prefer to chat about banning smoking on the balconies.

Well done Singaporeans, for the apathy and the meek acceptance as the government railroaded FICA down our throats. Oh well, as the saying goes, the kind of people deserves the kind of government.

No one is against a law to prevent foreign interference in our domestic affairs. All opposing voices, including this one, are just very concerned this piece of legislation denies *due judicial process* to those accused. The ends may be well-intentioned, but the *means trample on our community’s ethical and moral values.*

The explanation by Shan on the impossibility of obtaining evidence may have earned the acquiescence of many. If you think Shan was brilliant, then you are too young to know his rational is a trick he pulled out of a very old hat.

Back in early days just after independence, Singapore faced a very serious problem of law and order. The triads were powerful and gansterism prevalent. Gang fights, killings, protection rackets, kidnappings were the order of the day. Prosecution was difficult because witnesses were afraid to step forward for fear of the triad. To resolve this, Lee Kuan Yew took to unconstitutional means of arrest and detention without trial. LKY’s way worked and Singapore finally killed the triad problem.

Today, Shan and 4G leaders are paid multi-million $ salary to copy an old way of doing things in an entirely new world environment.

For me personally, it’s a paradoxical situation.

As a very young boy at the time, I was agreeable to LKY’s ways. But today, as a Merdeka gen, I am vehemently against Shan’s ways. I find it very paradoxical that in my youthful idealism, I supported LKY, and in my old age pragmatism, I am against Shan, in what is essentially the same tyrannical approach to a somewhat similar problem.

However, I am at peace as I can reconcile the paradox.

You see, sometimes we go where our heart feels. The BIG difference between LKY and Shan, in this regards, is *TRUST* . Back then I trusted the first gen leaders. Today I don’t trust Shan and the 4G leaders.

There is a huge world of difference between *men who risk their own lives and accept meagre salaries* to run the affairs of the community, and men helicopter dropped into positions of power and collect million $ pay cheques and still asked for more allowances and perks .

  • Trust comes with Truth .....:

    “Fine words and an insinuating appearance are seldom associated with true virtue. To see what is right, and yet not act upon it, betrays a lack of courage or of principle…. To be able under all circumstances, to practice these five things would thereby constitute perfect virtue: seriousness, generosity of heart, sincerity, earnestness, and kindness.”

    - Confucius c.300B.C.

    Exactly…. And the bloody Democratic Progressive Party government also selectively choose who they want to use the law on.

    There were some PAP members absent when their votes were taken, and needed.

    What does one read of their absence?

  • opposition dude:

    The good thing about PAP using the same old ways of doing things is that it causes more and more people to resent them. Together with their unaccountability and non transparency it’s just icing on the cake.

  • SGs Deserve Better:

    How are the ordinary citizens going to voice out ?
    Only on social media forums..even that is now under tight scrutiny…
    SGs had been bullied and brainwashed for decades…to accept and not protest..
    We can only “protest” at the ballot box every 4 years
    …but nothing changes cuz 61s are happy and prospering under this regime.
    Sometimes i feel a sense of hopelessness…like many others…

    The PAP forebears were egalitarian in principle. The present Pappy devolutionaries are Egolitarian by nature – by the people for ourselves!

    It is good to see our respectable gahmen desire to have HIGH STANDARDS OF INTEGRITY with regards to INFORMATION TRANSMISSION in all forms and for all purposes so that Sgs are TRULY WELL-INFORMED n NOT BE MISLED.

    BUT,WHY IS THE GOVT NOT APPLYING SUCH HIGH STANDARDS TO THEMSELVES?
    ARE PRs same as SG CITIZENS IN POPULATION stats,in LABOUR COMPOSITION DATA,AND,WHY EVEN TH CEO’S SALARY IS A TOP SECRET?

    The CURRENT COVID FATALITIES ARE MOSTLY ASCRIBED TO PRE-EXISTING CONDITIONS seemd like FALSE INFORMATION in itself?
    Such straightforward info becoming DISFORMATION IS OK?

    So many examples.
    How about the $100 BILLION ,HOW WAS IT ALLOCATED EXACTLY?
    NO ONE KNOWS EXCEPT THEMSELVES?

    OF COURSE,SGS WILL BE CURIOUS.
    GUESSTIMATION ABOUT TH CEO SALARY IS JUST a result of the govt being unnecessarily SECRETIVE,WITHHOLDING INFO N CONFUSING THE CITIZENS.
    SO,WHY BLAME SGS N PUNISH US WITH SCHOOL-LIKE LAWS?
    WE ARE NOT SCHOOL KIDS EVEN THOUGH YOU THINK YOU ARE SMARTER N SCHOLARS.

  • 4G CMI, SG dies:

    Maybe, just maybe this has to do with karma.

    LKY’s way was to deal with triad and people who opposed him. Now, his useless son not only want to deal with people who stand in his way, he could also be planning to use it to deal with his own family members in case they try to kwai lan with him again? 借刀杀人 or using Shan as his weapon! Note that LHY has very recently sold 2 of his properties. What’s he planning? Migrate before his own bro F*C* him?
