    They have to step up their game not everyone will follow the government rules and 70% of Singapore population are Chinese this is why they have the privilege they can do all they want but when the minorities do they get fine or imprison. The pledge can throw already donít need to use anymore.

    Singapore is among the fairest countries in the world. There is no racial privilege in Singapore. Unfortunately, there are race baiters all around the world, including Singapore.

    Today's Singapore reminds me of the Republic of China under Chiang Ching-kuo. I wonder if the Lee family will ever let Singapore become a true democracy like Chiang Ching-kuo let "Taiwan" become today?

    Of course, that would leave the Chinese in charge since they are the majority...

    Incidentally, Chiang Ching-kuo and Lee Kwan Yew were great friends with different ideas about how to rule their respective peoples.
