An observer from elsewhere will no doubt conclude that Singaporeans are a society ever resigned to their fate under the heel of Lee Kuan Yew's government.
Only yesterday, the government declared their intention to increase the tiny island’s population to an astronomical 6.9 million by 2030. With an area of just 16 miles from North to South and 26 miles across, it already is already the most crowded piece of real estate in the world with 5.3 million. How are you going to cram another 2 million or so, but the bigger reason is why?
But being incapable of doing anything real such as organizing peaceful protests island wide, they simply do nothing. It is if the entire island is overcome with an all consuming fear of the government that they have gone into default mode of total inaction.
Take another case. Although the Constitution demands equal treatment for all races, the government has themselves without any legal basis, decided to have larger numbers of ethnic Chinese which now stands at about 79% while Indians and Malay population is deliberately shrunk almost out of existence.

In any other country in the world the Malays who are Muslims would have gone on a Jihad to stop the government from discriminating them and denying their rights.
I urge the Malays in
Your Malay leaders such as Yaccob Ibrahim in the Lee government have never been looking out for your interests but his own and in fact is an accomplice in putting you down and discriminating against you in favor of his masters, the ethnic Chinese majority government. He does it for money; lots of it. Remember, it is your island and you are being denied your rightful place in society. You are being discriminated in the island which belongs to you.
Lee and his government keep you in fear of doing anything real by threatening you with the ISD, detention without trial. I want to remind you that in this day and age, they cannot simply lock anyone away without having to account for it.
Remember in 2008, when I was arrested and jailed in
Jufrie Mahmood of the Singapore Democrat Party understands your plight but he does not have the courage to do what is right. I call upon you to reach out to him and do something for his people. He is now sitting behind Chee Soon Juan of the SDP, obeying the orders to him to do nothing, and waiting for the Heavens to descend.
