    Hello, Bic_cherry from Singapore.

    Government is kinda repressive here and I am looking for a place to safe keep some of my post about the country that I come from. I wonder if it's safe here. 🤔

    Wow, cannot edit my own posts in this forum ��.

    Anyway, the following post I have posted to my own local forum but high chance it will get deleted by the local authorities here. Hopefully this essay can still be found by Google even though the original on my local forum is censored by the authorities here.
    =======

    Singapore and DPRK (North Korea) ruling political families are cut from the same cloth?
    North Korea’s leader Kim Jong Un (L) is welcomed by Singapore’s Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong (AFP Photo/ROSLAN RAHMAN)

    Singaporeans (69.9% of them at last count (GE2015)) vote for PAP not out of hope, but out of fear (cowardice) instead.

    Kiasu, kiasee, kiaboh (scared to lose, die or be in lack respectively: aka cowardice) : all this results in Singaporeans playing into the trap of PAP, so PAP can toy around with Singaporeans as a cat plays with a rat (it's food).

    Singaporeans are basically slaves by choice who have refused to escape their masters even though every 5 years, they are given the constitutional chance to choose their leaders via general elections, yet every 5 years, they hypnotically conform to warnings and threats that failure to vote as instructed will result in absurd and unjust penalties being imposed (e.g. deliberate though imprisonment in passenger lifts because political pressure is imposed on government bodies to delay/ withhold essential rescue / humanitarian services from opposition political constituencies / wards).

    Singapore is a perfect case to study the stolkholm syndrome on a national scale.

    North Korea is similar but there are geographic and historical reasons for the DPRK situation but Singapore has one of the world's highest GDP and supposed to have world's best education and males supposed to be military, police/ civil defence trained through compulsory national service.

    Like North Korea, the PAP government is very cunning and systematically suppresses any political opposition and holds government services ransom in case districts vote in opposition parliamentarians. A very large proportion of Singapore cabinet ministers are also ex military generals (career soldiers).

    Singapore and DPRK (North Korea) ruling parties are cut from the same cloth.

    Correct?

    In a more recent case, Singapore's ruling PAP party misused the Attorney General Chambers (AGC) as their private party election manager/ agent despite the AGC supposed to be fully above any political bias as the 1997 Cheng San GRC case evidences:

    (https://www.theonlinecitizen.com/201...e-upside-down/)

    I always wonder if future historians will remember Lee Hsien Loong as the power crazy/ greedy son who will bring Singapore from first World to third by increasing wealth inequality and tearing the social fabric of Singapore apart.

    Sorry if this post isn't so appropriate, but it does serve as in introduction of sorts and I also cannot post any thread till I have 25 posts count and do urgently need safe keeping space away from the censorship authorities here, so please be understanding in this regard.

    Hopefully there can be an edit post function for full members and allow avatar use as well. Edit post function will make forum much more user friendly since time is allowed to make corrections for factual mistakes without need to make too many extra posts to correct a previous typo or grammar mistake etc.

    The reason for the restrictions is the board gets spam bot attacks from time to time.

    Welcome to the board
