Political Awakening of a Pioneer Generation Singaporean

1. I am a 74-year old native-born tertiary-educated Pioneer Generation Singapore Citizen.

4 years older than PM Lee; 7 years older than SM Teo Chee Hean.
( In Cantonese lingo, I would have “eaten more salt” than both had “eaten rice” )

2. Completed full-time National Service ( amongst early batches ).

3. Eldest Son and only one amongst 7 children in a poor family to attain tertiary education ( under a Colombo Plan Scholarship awarded by British Govt ).

Adamantly refused to be called “Govt Scholar” to avoid being “contaminated/corrupted” by those PAP-bootlicker Yes-Man “Paper-Scholars” & “Paper-Generals” dominating the PAP Million-dollar Govt.

4. GRATEFUL to survive Open Heart Bypass Surgery in 2013 (around same time as Khaw Boon Wan — the ex-Malaysian who didn’t do a single day of National Service).

Was billed S$8,000 by SGH for a “heavily-subsidized” Class B2 ward (6-bedded non-aircon).

Whereas, filthy-rich PAP Multi-Millionaire Minister Khaw publicly boasted he only paid S$8 nett for his similar surgery !!!

5. During my idealistic youth, Lee Kuan Yew was ( past tense ) “My Singapore Idol”.

Now, best described as “an utterly disillusioned/disgusted former PAP supporter”.

NOT a member of any Political Party — am speaking up openly/fearlessly in exercise of my birth right, human right and democratic right.

Over the past 30 years ( almost half my life span ), I have contributed regularly to newspaper/Internet forums — mostly on issues of Public SAFETY & Public HEALTH.

6. ETERNALLY GRATEFUL to my late uneducated Cantonese Mother who taught me how to overcome the PAP-induced Political Cancer ( “Fear of Speaking Up” ) with this saying:

” If what you SAY or DO is RIGHT, you need NOT FEAR the lightning bolt* striking you DEAD! “ ( *as depicted in the “fearsome” PAP logo !!! )

7. A PERSONAL REGRET:

It took me so long ( at age 40 ) to “see through” the never-ending cunningly-clever political ploys used by the PAP to dominate/entrench itself in Singapore Politics AT ALL COSTS — even to the LONG-TERM DETRIMENT of SINGAPORE (The Nation) & SINGAPOREANS (The People).

8. My Public Declaration on “having Moral Backbone” (as taught by Mother):

” I would rather “surrender my soul” (for free) to SATAN The Devil than “sell my soul” to the PAP Political Devil — not even for a million-dollar pay package !!! ”

9. My Core Political Belief:

The PAP (as a mere Political Party) can always GO TO HELL (ie be voted out of political office by Disgusted/Angry S’pore Voters).

But SINGAPORE (Beloved Country of My Birth) must never GO TO HELL due to PAP Arrogant Incompetent MISMANAGEMENT !!!

10. When young, as a “British Subject”, I sang “God Save The Queen”.

Now, a Pioneer Generation Singaporean, I am singing “God Save SINGAPORE” ( from the greedy/evil crutches of the PAP Political Devil).

  • Another Pioneer:

    This is from from your heart writing, David.

    I agree with all you’ve said.

    In short, Singapore is a dictatorship all but in name.

    They have abused their authority to build up not a democratic society but a despotic one where one man with a poster standing on the street is a big threat to them.

    Millions of taxpayers money they have pocketed via salaries, perks and pensions. They are the privileged class all living in one enclave.

    It’s only family obligations that have kept me here or else I’d have migrated. What’s so good about the most expensive city in the world?

    A country whose media is controlled by the regime?

  • President Lincoln's son....:

    “Dear teacher, my son starts school today. It is all going to be strange and new to him for a while and I wish you would treat him gently. It is an adventure that might take him across continents. All adventures that probably include wars, tragedy and sorrow. To live this life will require faith, love and courage.

    So dear Teacher, will you please take him by his hand and teach him things he will have to know, teaching him – but gently, if you can. Teach him that for every enemy, there is a friend. He will have to know that all men are not just, that all men are not true. BUT TEACH HIM ALSO THAT FOR EVERY SCOUNDREL HE KNOWS THERE IS ALSO A HERO; THAT FOR EVERY CROOKED POLITICIAN, THERE WILL ALSO BE A DEDICATED LEADER.

    Teach him if you can that 10 cents earned is of far more value than a dollar found. In school, teacher, it is far more honorable to fail than to cheat. Teach him to learn how to gracefully lose, and enjoy winning when he does win.

    Teach him to be gentle with people, tough with tough people. Steer him away from envy if you can and teach him the secret of quiet laughter. Teach him if you can – how to laugh when he is sad, teach him there is no shame in tears. Teach him there can be glory in failure and despair in success. Teach him to scoff at cynics.

    Teach him if you can the wonders of books, but also give time to ponder the extreme mystery of birds in the sky, bees in the sun and flowers on a green hill. Teach him to have faith in his own ideas, even if every one tell him they are wrong.

    Try to give my son the strength not to follow the crowd when everyone else is doing it. Teach him to listen to every one, but teach him also to filters all that he hears on a screen of truth and take only the good that comes through.

    Teach him to sell his talents and brains to the highest bidder but never to put a price tag on his heart and soul. Let him have the courage to be impatient, let him have the patient to be brave. Teach him to have sublime faith in himself, because then he will always have sublime faith in mankind, in God.

    This is the order, teacher but see what best you can do. He is such a nice little boy and he is my son.”

    It is said that one get wiser as one get older. So never too late for ppl like this David to open their eyes big-big.

    Anyway, the last 3 elections under the Loong administration already proved conclusively that more and more voters/Singaporeans are turning away from the pappies tribe. And the Golden Prince was so stupid to indirectly admit it by unwisely calling voters as “Free Riders”. So this David is apparently not alone, hor.

  • xoxo:

    Understandable WHY you appreciated PAP under LKY.
    I too appreciated the 1G then.
    Lets be fair n give praise where praises are due.
    LKY was fortunate to have great sgs like DR GOH KENG SWEE ,Dr Toh CHIN CHYE,HON SUI SEN N RAJA during his tenure as PM.
    Sgs,too,benefitted much,we must fairly admit.
    Save for some political differences with BS,etc,PAP during LKY’s tenure had done good things for Sg n sgs alike.

    In latter days,even when LKY WAS SOLE 1G MENTOR,PAP gahmen OPENLY ABANDON RESPONSIBILITY TOWARDS the common sgs who toiled hard at nation-building,no less.

    The rest i know,you know.
    But i cant stand that PM LEE CABINET ROBS sgs of $100 Billion of our reserves just so to di$h out generous furlough to non-sgs drawing high salaries,among them newly arrived INTRA-COMPANY FT-transferees who have not even started paying INCOME TAX when HSK RAIDED sgs’ reserves in the name of SOLIDARITY N RESILIENCE BUT many deserving NEEDY sgs only got $600?!

    The PEANUT Goh’s regime started the ball rolling to *COLLECT MORE money N GIVE LITTLE* to common sgs.
    $in Inc was born.
    Ministerial paycheck$ sky-rocketted to the moon n beyond!

    Meanwhile,FT POLICY kicked off aggressively and saw many nation-builders got unfairly displaced by those FTs who dare even CHEAT GOVT agencies like A*Star in order to get job$.

    LHL still sings nonchalantly the tune that *FTs create more jobs for sgs* even ad many SG-PMETs got robbed off their jobs by much crooked practice?

    National Productivity started plunging n has hardly recovered.
    If we plot a chart of National Productivity on the Vertical axis and Number of FTs on the Horizontal,we can witness that the more the number of FTs replacing productive sgs,the LOWER THE NATIONAL PRODUCTIVITY,who can deny?

    LHL N HIS MINISTERS are still singing the *FT song* even as those CECA-FTs brought along with them DELTA mutant ninjas?

    The PAP MPs,like David says,needs to be replaced the way they replace sgs.

    TIME FOR FRESH TALENTS.
    The PAPies are getting $tale.

  • From Merdeka Generation:

    I am a 71 years old Singaporean and have gone through a lot in life. During my youth, I was willing to sacrifice my life as a NS man for my country because LKY did a very good job running the country.

    I remembered Goh was angry when some Singaporean scholars refused to sign bond to serve the government. Some even paid their way out of the Government Scholarship. As a result he gave the Government Scholarship to foreign students from countries such as Malaysia etc. This is the start of our trouble in Singapore. All because of a small group of Singapore students becoming rebellious. Any way his girl also rebellious by marrying Ang Mo and refused to come back.

    When LHL took over, the problem got worse. LHL, Teo and most of the Elite Ministers come from the very rich family in Singapore. They have never experienced what life is like to be poor in Singapore. Even if a cup of coffee in the coffee shop cost S$100 per cup, it is nothing to them because they are drawing million of dollars salary from taxpayer money.

    Now there are so many problems in Singapore and none of them are are tackling these problems but instead wasting their time and resources on COP with RK lies.

    My children one from NTU and one from Poly are now unemployed and have difficulties looking for jobs. I myself a PMET from US company have for the past 20 years doing nonsense jobs like Private Hiring job etc.

    My question is why are we still bringing FTs to take over Singaporean jobs ?

    Is LHL and the PAP Ministers looking after the welfare of Singaporeans like wgat LKY used to do ? If not time to kick them out abd give others a chance to rule. KNNBCCB

    SINKIELAND HAS FALLEN OFF THE CLIFF, the Covid pandemic illuminates that EXPLICITLY. OYK said 40 years of what is truly a world-class monument of apparent success – Changi Airport turned up a ghostly deserted architectural wonder. And now attempts to re-open the border met with staring failure even before omicron’s arrival. Changi Jewel, another white elephant, is fake jewelry and T5 is now a wet dream of another waiting failure in wait.

    It is a wake-up call that artificial beauties are NOT ECONOMY – it may be for eyeball rapists’ fantasy of stupid economic modeling. Past Tense was a brilliant politician and legal wizard, but far more mundane of economic wit. The superlative growth rates of the 70s/80s are NOT economic miracles – much touted by business journalists. There are four other tiger economies – THEY HAVE ALL FADED AS WELL.

    Why?

    It is what economists identify as the initial “take-off” stage, inevitable, of the beginning of economic growth cycle, driven by urbanisation (housing), infrastructural spending boom and rising education supporting basic industrialisation.

    It is a positive-driven self-reinforcing cycle. For a given population, you can’t build endless housing (glut), over construction of public transport/MRTs running at way over capacity and losses and endless industrialisation on cheap labor shortages.

    NOTHING IS CLEVER about this stupid economic modeling. Professor Krugman warned Past Tense in 1990 that the economic dividend of 70s and 80s cannot be repeated. Past Tense ignored his advice – presumably he believes on his own limitless monopolistic genius & window of economic wisdom.

    He was so confident of his economic calculus – OVER MY DEAD BODY of his assertion of no casino on his sacred soil. How long did he took to discover how badly wrong he was? Did we got one casino or two? I don’t know.

    Present Tense is better clarity of realism. He told the BBC journalist this – nobody has a monopoly of information and wisdom. Implicitly PAPpypolitics/PAPpynomics can get it all monumentally wrong.

    He was warned in 2011 Economics Strategies Committee report and warning that the present economic pathway of relying on endless flood of cheap foreign labor is unsustainable. He “accepted” that recommendation but it got either into the dustbin or the museum of national economic history. There was no clear budgetary allocation to restructure the economy.

    Instead $6.2 billion were splashed of budget lolly just before the election – CLEVER PAPOLITICS, STUPID PAPpyNOMICS PREVAILED.

    By 2015, he told the nation this – our economy has MAXED OUT, the low hanging fruits have been harvested. In 2016, he pleaded for public patience with this cautionary against big expectations – there is still so much pain because restructuring of the economy FAILED.

    SO WHEN & HOW IS THE TURNAROUND AFTER THE PANDEMIC WRECKAGE?

    I HAVE ALWAYS STRONGLY BELIEVE this – dictatorial/authoritarian rule which PAPpypolitics/PAPpynomics is abundantly endowed with has NEVER WORK of success or success beyond a short chapter of history.

    DICTATORSHIP is NAKEDLY counter to GENETIC PROGRAMMING in human civilisation and undermining of pathway to success of economic achievement. Civilisation demands and needs POLITICAL FREEDOM, PHYSICAL SOCIAL AND INTELLECTUAL SPACE TO DEVELOP AND GROW THEMSELVES AND THE COUNTRY THEY SHARED THEIR LIVES AND DESTINY with.

    It is entirely true that Sinkieland is imprisoned by geography of its small size of a barren rock that can’t grow food to feed its population. Geography imprisons its geology – no gold, no oil and gas, no uranium and not even space to dump its human waste from consumption!

    And to aggravate its limitation of geography and geology, DO WE FURTHER IMPRISON ITS INTELLECTUAL SPACE to impede its development space and pathways?
    How does this work when a little peasant holding a smiley cardboard is prosecuted/convicted for public order LEGISLATED law stupidly enacted by a mob of walking no thinking eggs.

    Sure we have no natural resources to be economic giants of the day, but in that absence, we also stupidly snuffed out the chances of another like of Facebook, Alibaba, Tesla, Nvdia, Didi, Uber, Microsoft, Apple which don’t requires us to dig for gold, copper, lead, zinc, uranium or hunt for the cheapest foreign labor to substitute/replace a well-educated/trained domestic labor via what might be called “POPULATION RECYCLING ECONOMICS’ ROUTE of yet another FAKE ECONOMIC MODEL?

    Any population driven economics is FAKE of its construction and durability of sustaining. Human consumes nearly as much as it creates of food, shelter, healthcare and ADD LITTLE OR NOTHING TO ENDEMIC SELF-GENERATING AND SUSTAINING GROWTH.

    Pray tell me, what does those mountains of highrise condos and overpriced public housing paid out of imprisoned retirement savings do for us when the economy tanked (by the pandemic or global downturn). Can we export and export these HDB/condo globally repeatedly to generate income and capital saving to grow the next cycle?

    PAPpypolitics asset enhancement politics is CLEVER POLITICS of vote catching BUT STUPID OF ECONOMIC LOGIC AND UTILITY BENEFITS.

    IT TAKE BOTH LABOR AND CAPITAL to grow the economy. To depend on cheap foreign labor is self-devouring and ZERO CAPITAL (HDB/condos are liabilities in mortgage, not investible capital) is NARROWING AND CLOSING our pathway to economic survival. Capital is NOT SELF-DEVOURING (except in loss-making enterprises) but SELF-FEEDING.

    But that capital is shrinking IF WE BET AND CONTINUE TO SUSTAIN MASSIVE losses in the global casino of so-called investing and allowed to sustain for so long.

    History proves me right. Post Berlin wall, who prosper buried in dictatorship for so long?

    EXPANDING ON MY CRITIQUE of Eastern Europe lethargic failure post Berlin Wall collapse above, dictatorship is ruinous of durable political and economic consequences.

    Since the fall of the Berlin Wall, I am sure some would want to return to the old Stalinism way of state dependency of an endless (but proven economically unsustainable) spoon feeding their mouths forever – fiack the freedom of speech, physical, social and intellectual space.

    Successful economies, despite cycles inevitably of growth pains and bursting, I suspect (anyone can challenge this thought) rest on

    freedom + free market + LIMITED GOVERNMENT.

    Without freedom to explore, contest and challenge old dogma in the turbulent world, we won’t have green economy to survive in a climate-changed world, no microsoft cloud computing, zoom WFH work and education, Apple phone, Facebook etc etc.

    In a dictatorship model world – WHO IS DOING THE HARD WORK, HARD THINKING AND EVEN THINK OF HOW TO FEED THEIR OWN HUNGER and risk enterprise undertaking and competition for the better of all civilisation and taking care of those fallen through the safety net?

    The Shah of Iran went on a massive industrialisation pathway, Arab oil money invested in corporate america (no success) – no success of their unyielding political dictatorial model despite their a*ses sitting on puddles of oil and gas.

    Stalin failed. Without Deng’s comeback, Mao’s cultural revolution and drive for industrialisation was an utter failure. If dictatorial rule brings wealth and welfare for its people, Cuba, North Korea, even Iran now would be a shiny bulb of wisdom and success.

    TOTAL DISASTER EVERYWHERE.

    The other 4 tiger economies are sliding backward. China is emerging at their competitive expense but china is also slowing as its economy is also maturing BEYOND THAT TAKE-OFF STAGE of its development cycle.

    IN CHINA, POLITICS RULES ECONOMICS – just like Sinkieland is. Where will it end? I confess I don’t know.

    Chinese stocks cut $600 billion from U.S. markets in 2021, and are just getting started.

    China can go through another disastrous “Cultural Revolution” when politics rules economic and if 500 million Chinese die from starvation – divine forbids, it still got 900 million population base to rebuild/regrow the country.

    SINKIELAND got this option in similar failure?

    Sneaky British:
    Those ugly statures were sneaked into HK in 1997 only a few days before the handover to China.

    Assange’s leaks exposed the truth: there was no massacre at Tiananmen. No machine-guns on protestors, no tanks on protestors. All a highly orchestrated cooked-up story. See how the west torture Assange now.

    It’s amazing how tolerant China is, allowing those statues for 20+ years. PAP would have torn it immediately.

    Now look at the hongkies. Those students barricade roads and behave like terrorists with Molotov cocktails and bow/arrows. Abusing their principals/teachers and thrashing classrooms/mrts/malls. Lay siege on airport. Attack/throw rocks at police stations.I saw it all. What happen now? All so quiet like mice and “LAN LAN” like lanjiaos. Don’t pity them at all. Lucky, China smart, didn’t machine-gunned them down during that time.

  • Blocking Youth's Progress:

    The shifting-goal policy of employment age, coupled with the flooding of cheap ‘forgeiners’ imports, is very destructive, BLOCKING fresh citizen graduates’ from entering the labour market, thus denying them the opportunities to chart their career paths and progress.

    The economy model is truly regressive and unsustainable, destructive and demoralising the citizens, the nation builders.

    Being unemployed for a long time after graduation, young people have no thought of getting married, hence the sharp decline of Total Fertility Rate, made worst with the incessant escalating High Cost of Living. Thus, the flooding of forgeiners imports become more and more persistent and soon the demise of true citizens who, for now, are struggling to survive on gig jobs of the unsustainable gig economy.

    Shifting the post of retirement fund drawdown age is a total betrayal to retirees who had helped build the nation as well as its reserves. At such advanced age, they should be enjoying the fruits of their decades of hardwork instead of relying on their underemployed children. Worst of all, when they have to survive with unemployed children.

    ” I would rather “surrender my soul” (for free) to SATAN The Devil than “sell my soul” to the PAP Political Devil — not even for a million-dollar pay package !!! ”

    Who under good heaven would or could coerce you into such a drastic and erroneously dichotomous situation?

    * * * * *

    1 “You who dwell in the Shelter of the Most High, who abides in the shade of the Almighty,
    2 say to the Lord, “My refuge and fortress, my God in whom I trust.”
    3 He will rescue you from the fowler’s snare, from the destroying plague,
    4 He will shelter you with His pinions, and under His wings you may take refuge; His faithfulness is a protecting shield.
    5 You shall not fear the terror of the night nor the arrow that flies by day,
    6 Nor the pestilence that roams in darkness, nor the plague that ravages at noon.
    7 Though a thousand fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, near you it shall not come.
    8 You need simply watch; the punishment of the wick*d you will see.
    9 Because you have the Lord for your refuge and have made the Most High your stronghold,
    10 No evil shall befall you, no affliction come near your tent.
    11 For He commands His angels with regard to you, to guard you wherever you go.

    14 Because he clings to Me I will deliver him; because he knows My Name I will set him on high.
    15 He will call upon Me and I will answer; I will be with him in distress; I will deliver him and give him honor.
    16 With length of days I will satisfy him, and fill him with My saving power.”

    (PSALM 91 of Prophet David)

  • Trust only myself:

    From Merdeka Generation:
    I am a 71 years old Singaporean and have gone through a lot in life. During my youth, I was willing to sacrifice my life as a NS man for my country because LKY did a very good job running the country.

    I remembered Goh was angry when some Singaporean scholars refused to sign bond to serve the government. Some even paid their way out of the Government Scholarship. As a result he gave the Government Scholarship to foreign students from countries such as Malaysia etc. This is the start of our trouble in Singapore. All because of a small group of Singapore students becoming rebellious. Any way his girl also rebellious by marrying Ang Mo and refused to come back.

    When LHL took over, the problem got worse. LHL, Teo and most of the Elite Ministers come from the very rich family in Singapore. They have never experienced what life is like to be poor in Singapore. Even if a cup of coffee in the coffee shop cost S$100 per cup, it is nothing to them because they are drawing million of dollars salary from taxpayer money.

    Now there are so many problems in Singapore and none of them are are tackling these problems but instead wasting their time and resources on COP with RK lies.

    My children one from NTU and one from Poly are now unemployed and have difficulties looking for jobs. I myself a PMET from US company have for the past 20 years doing nonsense jobs like Private Hiring job etc.

    My question is why are we still bringing FTs to take over Singaporean jobs ?

    Is LHL and the PAP Ministers looking after the welfare of Singaporeans like wgat LKY used to do ? If not time to kick them out abd give others a chance to rule. KNNBCCB

    If you are not unthinking Singaporean too bad, they are the majority.

    If you are just another unthinking Singaporean before, also too bad, your children pay the price….

    Do you mean the excitements of the riotous turmoil in the days of Mao’s Cultural Revolution?

    And as for this advocacy

    China Best Democracy: If only the western fake democracies can rein in the capitalists.

    You mean China is very clever to curb and rein in its own technology giants too? Who creates wealth and employment opportunities that these “technocrat-capitalists” bring to or cultivate in China? They raised US$600 billion of foreign capital from their US-listings which they have no chance of attracting such quantum within China or and in HK capital markets together.

    Isn’t this is good for capitalism BOTH in China and foreign available investible funds – all thanks to capitalism – they are both “sleeping on the same bed even if different dreams of democracy capitalism and pseudo capitalism/commie enterprise?

    And this one beats sanity of logic.

    China Best Democracy: Their “democracy” put people to be exploited and abused.

    Do you mean those giant Chinese techno-preneurs crawls to Wall Street seeking listings on the NY stock exchange in exchange “to be exploited and abuse.”?

    If they all are that stupid, they won’t have achieved thus far to be welcomed in your “fake” democracy world.

    But leopards in real life climb multiple trees nearby nearly at the same time whilst hiding the (food) of its prey carcass only on one tree from other potential predators.

    In simple English, leopards has different version of lies of the same truth at the same time. Your categorisation of “people” from “Capitalist” is false and your vain attempts to merge authoritarian dictatorship with democracy is also hypocritical pretentions (just like the behavior of leopards climbing different trees at the same time in my illumination).

    @ China Best Democracy

    Adding on, dictatorship, anywhere, is LAZY of creativity, INCOMPETENT of all efforts, HYPOCRITICAL of outcome display, ZERO ACCOUNTABILITY of failed management and cover-up inevitable and worst still DEBASEMENT of all human genetic programming to express creativity, efforts and achievement.

    It is exactly like the turmoil and wanton violence observed in Mao’s Cultural Revolution era of failed agriculture, industrialisation, education wreckage, ruined economic malaise amidst massive starvation and hunger deaths in the countryside.

    In contrast to the renaissance of political and economic rebirth in the Deng’s era – never mind the cat is black or white -as long as it catches the mice, China TURNED AROUND. Capitalism (you called that fake democracy here) is NOT A DIRTY WORD in socialist China bent on communism. Socialism is much ignored arguably silently despised, Chinese capitalists are like those found in western democracy. They crawled or swam across the Pacific Ocean to get that NY stock exchange listing to expand their VISIBILITY, ASSESSED STATURE, GLOBAL REACH OF CAPITAL HARVESTING TO FUND THEIR BALANCE SHEET, maybe later conquer America, economically and technologically.

    But look what happened now? The clock walks back anti-clockwise DESPITE THESE OBVIOUS OMINOUS WARNING. After the fall of the Berlin wall, NO ONE COUNTRY EAST OF THAT, including political/military powerhouse, Russia, prosper after nearly 30 years.

    ONE WHOLE GENERATION WASTED AND LIVING IN DESPAIR after communism/dictatorship DESTROYED the natural human GENETIC PROGRAMMING to strive for better.

    There may be no more fertile seeds of germination – IF YOU INSIST ON MIXING DICTATORSHIP with democracy in pretension.

    Dictatorship is NOT on the same continuum or scale of balancing of freedom and opportunity as democracy. YOU CAN’T MIX THE TWO IN HYPOCRISY that dictatorship brings “democracy” to the oppressed people.

    It is your gibberish ranting of nonsense.

    China’s rich, political elites sent their children (privately) or better still on STATE-FUNDED SCHOLARSHIP to the best tertiary universities in (fake you labelled???) democracy. Some even corruptly buy their way in for an educational opportunity there is “imagined dangerous fake democracy” countries of your denunciation.

    As I said in the preceding post, you WEAVE A BEAUTIFUL COBWEB OF DECEIT in this thread but if challenged your reply inevitably must come back this predictable way of reply of – ” I DON’T KNOW!!”

    Friends who have visited the former East Germany told me this – it feels like visiting cemetery of the dead of much of the country or museum celebrating failed history of very few foreign tourists visiting. NOTHING TO SEE AND LEARN. This is 30 years after Berlin wall fall.

    CONSTRAST THAT WITH VIBRANT WEST GERMANY.

    @ China Best Democracy

    The tales of that pallid state illuminated (in the preceding comment) of economies east of the Berlin Wall as told by my PRC couple appears to match closely the sombre revelation from a Romanian young girl in her early 20s I met i.e. the generation after the fall of Berlin wall.

    She prefers Romania returned to communism and state dependency for food and shelter. In the countryside, youths all disappeared to EU looking for subsistence survival work – the only inhabitants left are frail elderly who can’t move even shopping for food nearby.

    She left Romania looking for work, half-starving to save money to bring back money every year to feed her mother, still alive. With communism, at least, she hope that her mother won’t die of starvation, she can buy freedom of finding and discovering a life journey for herself – that is what she told me!

    The collapse of communism brings it the nearly completed collapse of the whole economy with no seed capital nor enterprise to strive for capitalism ( you even called this capitalism “fake” democracy here and seek to rein in capitalism).

    Democracy (and capitalism embeded) is not perfect BUT IT IS THE BEST WE HAVE GOT.

    DICTATORSHIP anywhere IS CANCER! China has a lot to thank Deng X P. China’s tech giants might be China’s next life-line. Leave the “capitalists” (you denounced here) alone, they create jobs for Chinese people, brings wealth to Chinese economy and may be the platform up the future economic ladder.

    The “superiority” of what you called “fake democracy” lies in the truthful observation that it is NOT CAPITALISM unfettered, unchecked of any excess.

    That is why your much bitter acrimony of capitalism (in your lingo “fake democracy”) is misplaced. US/UK/Australia etc HAVE ANTI-TRUST REGULATION to curb commercial power domination and the RISKS (not yet the actuality that it already happened) that this might happened. There are employment discrimination law, sexual harassment law, and yes minimum wages too etc etc.

    China and dictatorial regimes have a lot to learn from “western capitalism” (aka in your vocabulary “fake democracy”) and Deng’s re-opening is a giant step of market/economy reform that open the pathway to China’s survival and prosperity now.

    In Australia, THE GOVT IS NOT IN BUSINESS even research entity like the CSL (Commonwealth research laboratory) is sold on market via IPO listing decades ago. So is CBA (Commonwwealth Bank) and Qantas – the GOVT GET OUT OF THE WAY OF CAPITALISM.

    IT IS CLEARLY

    Freedom + Capitalism + LIMITED GOVT politics.

    If Mao’s Cultural Revolution had remained enshrined in China, the peasants WILL MOST BUT SURELY DIE OF STARVATION.

    DICTATORSHIP ALL FAILED OR FAIL IN DUE COURSE. POST BERLIN WALL FALL, HISTORY PROVE my judgment call correct.

    DICTATORSHIP IS CANCER- IT DESTROYS THE GENETIC PROGRAMMING in human economic survival, THE SEEDS OF ECONOMIC PROGRESS IN HUMAN CIVILISATION.
