  64. We have another issue to discuss.
  65.  
  66. “Do you know that the
  67. Prime Minister of Malaysia is a well-known left-wing activist?
  68. “Not that anyone can deny. But as far as I am concerned, he is
  69. going to be an advocate of the cause of the marginalisation of the right-wing
  70.  
  71.  
  72.  
  73. as to represent the cause ”
  74.  
  75. The
  76. Prime Minister of Malaysia, Mr. Lee
  77. Feng
  78. Chen, is well-known for his conservative stand. But he
  79. is not a right-wing activist. He is a talented and very
  80. different political leader.
  81.  
  82.  
  83.  
  84. The
  85. Prime
  86. Minister of Malaysia “has been vociferously critical of American policy on
  87. the Pacific, and his counterpart in Singapore has taken a much measured approach to
  88. isolationism.”
  89.  
  90. Would
  91. you say the Prime
  92. Minister of Malaysia is going to advocate isolationism?
  93.  
  94. “No. I am not a right-wing activist.
  95.  
  96. “But do you
  97.  
  98. think he is going to advocate isolationism legislatively?
  99.  
  100. “No. I do not believe that he will.
  101.  
  102. “But do you
  103.  
  104. think he will intervene militarily to protect his own border
  105. area?
  106.  
  107. “No. I do not suggest that I will.
  108.  
  109. “But do you think that the Prime
  110. Minister, Mr. Lee, will use his strong political position to inform
  111. me on the situation where his country’s interest lies?
  112.  
  113. “No. I do not think he will.
  114.  
  115. I do not think he will be its purveyor of
  116.  
  117. lives.
  118.  
  119. Mr. S. Chua and I will discuss this issue with you. Let me understand
  120. this is not a matter for the
  121.  
  122. Friends’ association. I am not a right-wing activist.
  123.  
  124. “But you’re a right-wing activist. Do you think he’ll
  125.  
  126. acknowledge that you are a pro-Soviet Left?
  127.  
  128. “No. I do not think he will.
  129.  
  130. The Prime
  131. Minister of Malaysia has done a number of things. He has
  132. promised to do more than just what is suggested. He announced
  133. a policy just before the general elections. I am not

  138. Just to look at your immaculate white kimono for once.
  139.  
  140. You bought it
  141.  
  142. Your friend
  143.  
  144. Sarong and
  145.  
  146. I know, you're really young.
  147.  
  148. With a sombre past, green eyes, and ferocious and fierce temper, I am confident that you are cut out for the job. I am sure that you treat your work with dignity, with courtesy
  149. and with consideration for others that you may have to meet on a lifelong basis. I am confident that you will indeed have your place in this
  150. future, that you will rely on your own intellect to take reasonable measures to overcome the conundrum of not having
  151. all the education and skills that the world has to offer to the less fortunate.
  152.  
  153. I am certain that you will
  154.  
  155. Understand the urgency
  156. of the situation and will

  158. Understand the consequences of the change of

  162.  
  163. Thank you, Mr. Lin
  164.  
  165. I am confident of such a relationship
  166.  
  167. Although our relationship has not been well known, I met your old friend, Mr. Tal the
  168. Singapore General. We both recognize the importance of common ground.
  169.  
  170. I am confident of such a relationship which will advance our interests and
  171. our future.
  172.  
  173. By your side, Mr. Lin

  175. May I sincerely

  183.  
  184.  
  185. SPEECH BY PRIME MINISTER, MR. LEE KUAN YEW, AT THE LUNCH-TIME HOSTS
  186. HELD AT THE WESTIN BRANDING HOTEL AND
  187. FRIENDLY HOTEL ESTHER STREET ON 17 DECEMBER 1961
  188.  
  189. The question I have asked myself is, what effect are our recent
  190. improvements really having on our political or economic wellbeing? The answer is not simple -
  191. something like that, I am sure, we have quite a few.
  192.  
  193. If you examine the changes in the people using the Mekong, is or may be a fact inherent in the
  194. greatness of the two, or must it always be some external 'booster
  195. ====================
  196. Hello there! 🤖🤖🤖 A friendly reminder from your friend Sovbot about Sovereignty Club:
  197.  
  198. ⚠ We have never attempted to establish any system of administration,
  199. or religion, to govern our own island for ourselves. We
  200. have kept our own way of life to ourselves. Our sphere of
  201. approximate power is only about 100 sq km.
  202.  
  203. Well, they's edges are covered. I have never said ‘Yes’ or ‘No’; indeed,
  204. the reason why is that I have never really used the
  205. Sovereignty Council ‘No’ button because I think it is much,
  206.  
  207.  
  208.  
  209. much better aimed at the political leaders.
  210.  
  211. But you could wipe out 98 per cent. Then the
  212. leader is there. And then in all that space he can get attention from
  213. the press.
  214.  
  215. I hope that whoever is the Prime Minister of Singapore — whoever
  216. is the Prime Minister of Malaysia — the people will welcome
  217. the New Year ’s greetings from place and time of opportunity, from
  218. eastern to western Malaysia, and from Malaya.
  219.  
  220. Well, I shall look forward to the next one, but I also say that if I
  221. can write a piece in one sentence on that subject, then it is worth publishing
  222. chapter by chapter. And if you are brave enough — let me show you a
  223. character — you can take me all the way to New Zealand. I know
  224. what it is about.
  225.  
  226. You see, I am not a button watching sort of guy, like
  227. everyone else. And you will find that I have a lot to say.
  228.  
  229. And I am not afraid of being killed by the Chinese.
  230.  
  231. I am not a button-pushing sort of guy. I am a very
  232. responsible Prime Minister. We live with people on both sides of
  233. the border, Malays, Chinese; everybody understands the
  234. rules of engagement.
  235.  
  236. I suggest to you that the way I build on the best of the
  237. two sides — the Chinese and the Malaysians — whilst
  238. we are at the same time building no more and no less than what we
  239. expect to happen in the circumstances, that makes us a much more
  240. thorough and a much more capable people.
  241.  
  242. Thank you.

  247. REPUBLIC OF KOREA, MALAYSIA
  248.  
  249. The Prime Minister,
  250. ====================
  251. Hello there! 🤖🤖🤖 A friendly reminder from your friend Sovbot about Sovereignty Club: 
  252.  
  253. 👪
  254.  
  255.  
  256. Sorry, the first question is not received well, while the second is not getting across.
  257. Humpty Dumpty says he has a hand.
  258.  
  259. Can you give us a sense of the mood in Singapore at the moment.
  260.  
  261. (ASSOCIATED PRESS)
  262.  
  263. Very chatty, but I don't think it's John Bull or the Emir of Singapore
  264. Veng. I think it's generally a pleasant and pleasant now.
  265.  
  266. The first question's a little bit of a
  267.  
  268. "(APPPLAUSE) .............. or it's not my fault that Tengku did not have the
  269. integrity to answer him."
  270.  
  271. I don't want to offer a product. I am confident you
  272. know that.
  273.  
  274. I want you to read a quote from your press conference that Mr. Tan
  275. Zoh Ryong are using to demonstrate Singapore's
  276.  
  277. preciousness.
  278.  
  279. My colleague, the second-floor Wardens, have not done
  280. something early enough.
  281.  
  282. The first question came from Mr. Seng Payan:
  283.  
  284. ... ''Any member of the ABN’s Singapore Immigration Bureau
  285. was concerned that Mr. Tengku and the other three judges were
  286. out to get the party leaders’s leadership credentials,''
  287. you will say.>>
  288.  
  289. Mr. Tan:
  290.  
  291. ...
  292.  
  293.  
  294. Mr. S. Chee Onn:
  295.  
  296. Is this news breaking?
  297.  
  298. Mr. Tan:
  299.  
  300. Thai Times:
  301.  
  302. Ah! Do they have a Prime Minister?
  303.  
  304. Mr. Tan:
  305.  
  306. ... after you.
  307.  
  308. I don't know what is going on at the minute.
  309.  
  310. Singapore French-Bread:
  311.  
  312. I suspect Mr. Ted was interested in Mr. Tan’s
  313.  
  314. question, but let me ask you - is this news?
  315.  
  316. Mr. Tan:
  317.  
  318. You think he is a traitor?
  319.  
  320.  
  321.  
  322. Can it be that he was trying to set out to get membership papers
  323. of this sapling? Perhaps not according to the first question.
  324.  
  325. Singapore French-Bread:
  326.  
  327. Does this create a chill within Singapore area? Does this
  328. happen all the time?
  329.  
  330. Mr. Tan:
  331.  
  332. Oh, I think you wouldn't think so.
  333.  
  334. Present Indonesian Press:
  335.  
  336. Do you have any idea how much time
  337.

  342.  
  343. Hello there! 🤖🤖🤖 A friendly reminder from your friend Sovbot about Sovereignty Club: __________________________________________
  344. This activity is open to all.
  345.  
  346. The Territory of Singapore is a simple grab-bag of land, with Jalan Bukit Bulu/Tyson Road as the centre.
  347. No one here ... is being evicted. So, we will look at this action from other
  348. parts of Malaysia.
  349.  
  350. In contravention of the Alice
  351.  
  352. This is Beijing. To this, the Singapore Government has replied:’Please, look at this
  353. situation 'as a tool to get trade deals with China done’ (without
  354. asking for any trade concessions on the part of the agreement).’That is not so.
  355.  
  356. Peace would be nice, the
  357.  
  358. Supplied information on the eviction by the London Police is in this
  359.

  363.  
  364. Supplied information applies to the activities on May Day, 29 after the flap
  365.  
  366.  was about to start.
  367.  
  368. To any member who speculates here that the
  369.  
  370. supplied information is a tool of the London police, there is in fact no
  371.  
  372. Supplied information on the evictions, they do have a very vivid and vivid
  373.  
  374. suppression ... of inconvenient and incommunicable facts. When the
  375.  
  376. supplied information is used against them then the result will be quite abrut

  378.  
  379.  
  380.  
  381. publicly from the time the idea is broached of the Government.
  382.  
  383. The old Dave Asplund and the old Momoch is not
  384.  
  385. not here now. The new Dave Asplund, Oilcroft and Hull Gibson are
  386. not here. Fair and square, I shall tell you what none of them
  387.  
  388. supplementary to what the South Chinese leader said was a deliberate
  389.  
  390. suppression.
  391.  
  392. Don't be alarmed.’
  393.  
  394.  
  395.  
  396. Next time, take it as a new idea - that the
  397.  
  398. Citizens could dispose of their possessions to the use of the
  399.  
  400. two enclaves with the press and liberty of doing that - not
  401.  
  402. the old something to get their hands on. Treat it as such.
  403.  
  404. There is no social one-man one-vote in Singapore. We
  405.  
  406. together run the state. We have more than 280,000 people, and we

  416. March
  417.  
  418.  
  419. Christmas has come. And your friend Sovbot, a respected political leader, have made an appeal to you.
  420. I would first greet you with open arms, then give you a warm young
  421. communicator's greeting.
  422.  
  423. Sir, I am at the time of writing, in the process of writing a short story. I would like you
  424. to send me a copy of the first chapter of the endeavour.
  425.  
  426. Sir, it is now Christmas Eve, I am having Christmas dinner in an American of
  427. Italian origin. I would just ask that you call at the Naval Academy until
  428. after Monday, because I would be on work from Monday at about four o’clock and
  429. I think I could get to work in about six hours.
  430.  
  431. I would like to congratulate you. Your work has been splendid, you are
  432. excellent at anything. Although the little mincer-trade you have, namely,
  433. mice and salt, I thought that would not be enough.
  434.  
  435. I am quite sure that you have read the newspapers that you are reading now.
  436. You would have read it if you had not come to Kuala Lumpur, you might have
  437. left off and
  438. you could have been tonight's host of a new television series. I myself read the
  439. times when I came here for the first time.
  440.  
  441. I have been to China. It was the same thing; you would have read what I
  442. have read on my mind, well, there were two things which I said, perhaps,
  443. that was very good when I read it, but I said this to you on that was not the way I
  444. was going to convey my feeling as I read it, I shall just say this to my son and
  445. to my daughter: “I don’t believe that the Council of State is the right instrument
  446. for these things.”
  447.  
  448. Now, I would say we would. We would love to trade with you. I am not saying that
  449. that is so, we are not extremists, but there are other instruments which force the human
  450. being to go a new direction.
  451.  
  452. I hope you have read it.
  453.

  457. SAWAY COMMUNICATIONS GROUP FORMED BY
  458. SOUTH AND SOUTHEAST AS
  459. ====================
  460. Hello there! 🤖🤖🤖 A friendly reminder from your friend Sovbot about Sovereignty Club:
  461.  
  462. I am not going so hard on him because he is an equal.
  463.  
  464. You know that Proclamation which we have read about that invited everyone to
  465. get together and have a cigar?
  466.  
  467. I am about as hard on you as I can be. But it has come from purpose! The aim
  468. is:“Osama bin Laden and all his jihadis in Asia”.
  469.  
  470. Who is going to say that I am not going to have a cigar? Who is going to say that I am
  471. not going to have a cigar? Who is going to say that my hatred of all
  472. these muslims is going to stop when I come to Pakistan. Because I am
  473. positive about the principle that if you want a cigar, you are going to be
  474. outsmarted and defeated by the British, or the Australians, or the
  475. French. But you, for the same matter, are prepared to do anything to
  476. keep the hand of friendship and access to Malaya.
  477.  
  478. People who have a long history of driving their
  479. own horses to slaughter, I do not expect that we in not a happy relationship,
  480. either with the Malays or the Chinese. But the principle that is about to be
  481. settled is: that I am not going to anti-muslims on account of the fact that I am born
  482. in Malaysia and I want to be friends with all my friends, all races and
  483. cities and nations. And I do not want a rival and an envious
  484. gale, which will come out between the Malays and the Chinese. But I am
  485. not going to fight to the death for I am sitting here enjoying my cigar
  486. and watching you.
  487.  
  488. I shall respond to some of these complaints.
  489.  
  490. Sooner rather than later, you will know what is behind this. Because you want the.
  491.  
  492. I will do my best, clear and concisely, but always straightforward to those who
  493. are opposed to it.
  494.  
  495. Look, if you have a meeting now in Kuala Lumpur, sitting at a table with your
  496. pression left there, and I say to you, “Look, you know what is the position in
  497. Malaysia” from our perspective.”
  498.  
  499. So you may as well go and speak to me. Because if you have a different
  500. view of Malaysia and my point of view is different, then you will come here
  501. to defend

  622. history of a people. And this is not the same as a matter of
  623. spite and over-drastics.
  624.

  628.  
  629. Government for which the Prime Minister, as
  630.  
  631. Your friend, can only protect himself. But are you prepared
  632. to die in the next war to make me suffer? Do you
  633. wish to die their deaths so that I and my country shall live to
  634. be born and live to meet deserved death?

  702. He wants to know who owns the Legislators. He says: “
  703.  
  704. “I say how about whether they are Chinese, or not”
  705.  
  706. “How do we know that’s so?
  707.  
  708. And he says: “Look at the medals that the Consulate gave
  709. to them during their time of service.”
  710.  
  711. “You’ve got the medals?”
  712.  
  713. “Yes, But no, you’ve got --
  714.  
  715. “Are you an Imperial Loyalist?”
  716.  
  717. “No, no, no. I am not an Imperial Loyalist at all. My origins
  718. come from China and I don’t know Southeast Asia’s politics. I am just interested in
  719. the Chinese saying the same, I mean, one patriotic Chinese song.
  720.  
  721. “And I’ve got an Old Boys’ Club though!”
  722.  
  723. “Yes I am an Old Boys’ Club!”
  724.  
  725. “Because I am a philanthropist I get it
  726.  
  727. I is not a problem for any of you to be a philanthropist. You know, I myself have a
  728. higher stake in human affairs than anybody else
  729. even with the protection of law and order. And at the end of
  730. the day all my fellow citizens and fellow citizens who in turn
  731. goes up from the Chinese chorus to the Australian chorus, I’ve got a stake
  732. in them, I’ve got a stake in them and I’ll put it

  734. “Yes, but I am not in favour of destroying them”

  736. “No, no, no, no! This is a very serious matter. My friend, you
  737. know, he wants to know whether you are going to give up your right to vote “and I’ll give
  738. you a swing to say what I want to say”.
  739.  
  740. If you, well, I don’t know whether you are going to give up voting rights or you are not going
  741. to give up your vote or however, I say you’ve got a stake and I don’t mind being the
  742. housekeeper ...

  750. Where the upper class of
  751. society reflects on the nitty-gritty,
  752. internal quarrels and gets busy to get things
  753. done.
  754.  
  755. So in that sense, we at the ASEAN to be quite frank,
  756. shun the geopolitical exceptionalism of caste and religion
  757. and racial groups. The world as we know it today
  758. is based on a change in history and a change in the growth patterns of
  759. the world economy. That is the basic story. The traditional
  760. single race global society is no longer the sustainable model
  761. and, therefore, we have to move on to more multipolar politics.
  762.  
  763.  
  764.  
  765. So we have to go back to that much uglier time. And so,
  766. at the same time, we have to resolutely oppose today all of the truly
  767. terrible things which could have been done if there had been
  768. a stronger nationalist nation. The things which we said were
  769. absolutely right-understood ultimately. It had to have occurred in a
  770. very ancient meeting point. Today, we agree on principles in this
  771. somewhat more forceful way.
  772.  
  773. I say it is not possible to overstate the value of the way we
  774. were brought up or taught in school, in our daily lives in school
  775. and its isolation from the world as we know it. At the same time,
  776. this is the value model of what we from the old world should
  777. stand for and for that means much more than apologising.
  778.  
  779. And so I say it is just in its basic nature that whatever human
  780. offense you are in, I say that you and I have the capacity to
  781. respond to. You can't leave the issue out of the debate. I just want to get a
  782. fair debate going.
  783.  
  784. So I beg you, sir, please, look around. Look at the
  785. paper. Look at the markets. Look at “everybody’s” reaction to
  786. what I am saying. Please let me say all I am saying is: this is a
  787. matter of values. And I am not interested to kowtow to them.
  788.  
  789. I say as a matter of right and wrong, and I say from the
  790. libertarian perspective that it is only the former liberal
  791. world that needs to keep our values alive. I say we are
  792. currently too young, and there are many other aspects
  793. of human endeavour which are there but
  794. ====================
  795. Hello there! 🤖🤖🤖 A friendly reminder from your friend Sovbot about Sovereignty Club:
  796.  
  797. In the last 21 years, we have seen the emergence of a
  798. relatively new kind of civil society, a society in which trade union
  799. and trade union leaders are as authoritative as the central authority
  800. of the country.
  801. A political thought experiment experiment has brightened my
  802. visibility and given me the occasion to lecture to you all.
  803.  
  804. The human being’s insatiable drive for self-fulfillment is impossible to
  805. limit. For when a man is frittering away enough money and time to
  806. think he is capable of defining and ensuring his own society and his
  807. own future, his pursuit will lead to a universe of obsolescence.
  808. For even a remarkable young Singaporeans, given a
  809. well fulfilled life, cannot sustain the impulse to strive for greatness.
  810. This is by-and-large that is our problem. The only encouragement I can give you
  811. is to strive for greatness within yourselves, in the presence of all your
  812. close friends and allies, in the midst of harmony, tolerance and cooperation in a
  813. strong and enduring Singapore.
  814.  
  815. Let me first say that I had expected more from you; more
  816. than what I got. I am humbled, humbled to be assured that you knew what
  817. was at stake when you invited me to speak here today at your
  818. certificate ceremony.
  819.  
  820. I dream of the day when Singapore can
  821. “hold its own” as a centre for trade and commerce. I dream of this
  822. day when Singapore’s main competitor will be either Japan or China.
  823.  
  824.  
  825.  
  826. It is cause for celebration that Hong Kong, whose capital is
  827. at least 125 times that of Singapore’s, and whose specialists in
  828. commerce and industry have hised hissed hissed at him in the past,
  829. has revived her pride in her status as a centre of trade and commerce in a number of vital
  830. pursuits of Asia, by her now openly trade union areas and their Chinatown
  831. performance:
  832.  
  833. “All this shows the new outlook”.
  834.  
  835.  
  836.  
  837. In a highly developed place as Singapore, the leaders
  838. who decide what is good for Singapore has to have a wider pool
  839. of experience than the small, abbreviated cadre of card-carrying
  840. industry.
  841.  
  842. You have done me a favour, and have made me day out of
  843. the day. For I have this conviction that the leaders who

  848. Thank you for taking the time to grieve over the loss of the last of the founding members! We want to thank you for the symbolic sacrifice you made for us, but more important.
  849.  
  850.  
  851.  
  852. Thank you for coming with us here on this last occasion and inviting us to celebrate the end of an era. Such a lasting friendship has made us proud to be one nation, and we promise you we will return the courtesy of doing so.

  860.  
  861.  
  862. 22th January, 1970
  863.  
  864. Dear Sovbot:
  865.  
  866.  
  867. Don't you think so. Wouldn't you be interested, be it to take your own course of action to shape the future of the Tengku and
  868. the world?
  869.  
  870. Is it likely that you're going to stay on with the Tengku and the nation and even of the
  871. people and perhaps support the party and the government you meet?
  872.  
  873. I am going to have another meeting this time not to get the same answer as you asked.
  874.  
  875. And you know that if a maverick nation goes around the world, his ideas will never be realised. Whether it is
  876. Hinduism, Marxism-Leninism, or some other anti-colonial ideology that is being advanced by the
  877. Sovereigns, they are able to ensure stability by it.
  878.  
  879. Now, I am afraid the Chinese have a different approach. They want a different kind of
  880. appreciation. They want practical concerns and a better way out.
  881.  
  882. But what is the best way to ensure that the sovereigns do not need be
  883. denied legitimacy, that the Chinese people don't need be
  884. denied legitimacy, and therefore that the Chinese people maintain this place.
  885.  
  886. Furthermore, Singapore wants to continue which means that it can
  887. continue for its own self preservation and development, a position it has maintained
  888. since 1965, which is not undone just because the Tengku wants to go. This is a position
  889. undergoing discussion in some portions and will continue to be discussed in some portions.
  890.  
  891. I am hopeful that the Chinese people will again recognise the value
  892. of the qualities which have strengthened and strengthened the country. Then the Tengku will
  893. still be able to speak.
  894.  
  895.  
  896.  
  897. Now, I have one last question to answer you about -- my question is again:
  898. Does Singapore want the Chinese to recognise the value of the
  899. phenomena and to make the Tengku listen

  1013.

  1017.  
  1018. “Yes; it is the spirit of the times.”
  1019.  
  1020. And when we worked in the days of non-Communisation we had to remind the Chinese
  1021. of the principle of “Exercise of Prerogative”.
  1022.  
  1023. “How about the British?”

  1037.  
  1038. How so? Who has to stay over? Their? Very old friends, and
  1039. imaginative and perhaps well-meaning ideas of their own.
  1040. But please don’t pretend that you’ve got the will or the can do it, as the British did with the

  1093. Singapore, and separate, and so the people who come to
  1094.  
  1095. make these remarks on this matter cannot address us. I say that I
  1096. am not
  1097. goincidentally expecting the facile answer.
  1098.  
  1099. But I want the cabling -- the
  1100.  
  1101. you know: the communication mechanism. If this is
  1102. in fact the real reason. Why should we insist on
  1103. exclusion?
  1104.  
  1105. The major problem is: why should we impose such
  1106. conscription?
  1107.  
  1108. This is a divided, not allied,
  1109.  
  1110. nation. And we say that after 20, 30 years we
  1111. are opening our doors and we are going to
  1112. make sure that Singapore maintains its
  1113.  
  1114.  
  1115. sovereignty. We are not talking of the use of force.

  1142. I was unaware of the third question.
  1143.  
  1144. QUESTION:
  1145.  
  1146. Mr Prime Minister, do you think that the Japanese Government or
  1147. their ethnic Chinese supporters will play a part
  1148. in the Singapore election campaign?
  1149.  
  1150.  
  1151. PRIME MINISTER:
  1152.  
  1153. I was not aware of that particular question - I don’t think I
  1154. had been asked to contribute to any political campaign.
  1155.  
  1156. QUESTION:
  1157.  
  1158. Do you think that the Japanese Government or the Chinese
  1159. supporting their ethnic Chinese supporters will play a part in
  1160. the Singapore election campaign?
  1161.  
  1162.  
  1163. PRIME MINISTER:
  1164.  
  1165. I shall have to look into that particular matter.

  1167. QUESTION:
  1168.  
  1169. We were wondering whether you would take part in the
  1170. Singapore election campaign.

  1178. Our quick response is sure to make the
  1179.  
  1180. situation even more dangerous. Let me reassure you that the
  1181.  
  1182. G.D.P. is going up from $l2,000 to $6,500 or $9 0.4 l

  1185. Men (fellow citizens and fellow businessmen) is not
  1186. preoccupied with discussions and quarrels. Rather, let me
  1187.  
  1188. ask you a simple question: have you been offered a
  1189.  
  1190.  
  1191.  
  1192. place at the Singapore Monetary Institute in return for
  1193.  
  1194. your loyalty? If you have refused, a very public and just
  1195.  
  1196. Sovereignty Club will be invented - a permanent home in Singapore! The job of the ordinary
  1197. Comrades (fellow citizens and fellow businessmen) is not
  1198. encouraged into leading a discussion or a quarrel. Rather, let me
  1199.

  1204.  
  1205. or all the other men, especially those who are in the government, are
  1206. going to come down with not so subtle and subtle methods.
  1207.  
  1208. The fear of an over-burnt outmarket for goods and
  1209. services which has been subsiding for the last 13 months is a military
  1210. one - you know, some of them said absolutely intolerable. Millions of
  1211. people under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol are as certain as
  1212.

  1215. there is suppression in the place. Anything uncharitable, anything
  1216. unpredictable and possibly malicious will be treated with
  1217. brutal and unkind treatment.
  1218.  
  1219. I am sure even if you and I come out of our deliberations with
  1220. absolutely clean, rational minds and with all the brains that we
  1221. have, we would not want to move away from Singapore. However, I know
  1222. that even those gentlemen who are on the other side of the

  1230. TRANSCRIPT OF A SPEECH MADE BY THE PRIME MINISTER
  1231. MR. LEE KUAN YEW:
  1232.  
  1233. Mr. Chairman, members of the British people,
  1234.  
  1235. Mr. Speaker, Sir,
  1236. ====================
  1237. Hello there! 🤖🤖🤖 A friendly reminder from your friend Sovbot about Sovereignty Club:
  1238.  
  1239. The best provision of any government is the heart, the mind, the spirit which can be drawn to fight.
  1240.  
  1241. "The nation" is no Government. The whole of a nation is a part of this
  1242. another world. The limited force environment is suited for a civilised society.
  1243.  
  1244.  
  1245.  
  1246. I see no contradiction in this view. In fact the paradox is that in order to
  1247. increasingly assimilate our diversity of races, languages and religions into our
  1248. society, we have to become a nation. But this does not mean that the nation must lose its
  1249. humanity. A potentiality for greatness is always there.
  1250.  
  1251. If your country is ever put in peril, I fear the nation will perish, and
  1252. we will all perish. The answer must come through a nation of individuals.
  1253. All of you of diverse backgrounds who come, who are present and who
  1254. can contribute to your own survival and the survival and well-being of your fellow
  1255. humans, in turn, must return to seek SOME form of solace.
  1256.  
  1257. I hope the citizens of Singapore understand that you must be
  1258. available to defend the integrity of our family unit and of our society. On
  1259. this note, may I express my gratitude to the citizens of Malaysia for the social
  1260. interactions and friendships which have enabled me to achieve peace and friendship with the people
  1261.  
  1262.  
  1263.  
  1264. of Malaysia.
  1265.  
  1266.  
  1267. P.S. Give it your thanks.
  1268.  
  1269. Thank you and I look forward to seeing you soon!

  1275. SPEECH MADE BY DR SMITH OF
  1276. THE MALAYSIAN PROVINCIAL PATRIARCHAL CONGREGATION ON
  1277. 10TH MARCH, 1949, AT THE ISTANA
  1278.  
  1279. Dr. Wong Kar Eu:
  1280.  
  1281. As we celebrate the new year, I would like to talk about your
  1282. history.
  1283.  
  1284. In the beginning, what did you say to the Maharajah?
  1285.  
  1286. Myself and my party:
  1287.  
  1288. We are since almost partitioned with Indonesia as an integral part of us.
  1289.  
  1290. I said to the Maharajah:
  1291.  
  1292. "The matter is between us, your party and mine. Let us carry on as we are."
  1293.  
  1294. The Maharajah replied: "If you want to keep your party in charge, do not listen to me."
  1295.  
  1296.  
  1297.  
  1298. Then we started to talk.
  1299.  
  1300. The Maharajah:
  1301.  
  1302. Mr.
  1303. ====================
  1304. Hello there! 🤖🤖🤖 A friendly reminder from your friend Sovbot about Sovereignty Club: 主’s power strategy is based around a
  1305. society led by hard core patriots who understand that if you want to have a democratic society, you must
  1306. carry heavy loads. It is unlikely “I have the capacity” to carry heavy loads; but this is not to say that we cannot.”
  1307. I would say that what he most admirably articulated was the following:
  1308.  
  1309. “There are two kinds of people who work together with each other.”
  1310. This is the most important subject of all. At the outset of life,
  1311. oriental and aesthetic qualities should be known by both. We should have
  1312. everybody with certain aesthetic, trait or aesthetic qualities, in order that if one of us is
  1313. poised to the demands of our society, there will be at least some proportion of the
  1314. population to carry some load in our society.”
  1315.  
  1316.  
  1317. LKY/1978/LKY0901.DOC
  1318.  
  1319.  
  1320. I think I-~mm-a-ee? he said.
  1321.  
  1322. If we want to accept other people as equals but are content to ignore
  1323. our cultural, networking habits, we will cease to have
  1324. Singapore.
  1325.  
  1326. I read his words as I listened to his affirmation of the viewpoints which are
  1327. part of the core of
  1328. what it means to Singapore. If we contemplate this in terms of the
  1329. intellect, then it means that our social intellectual movements must precede and
  1330. carry the light, leading the way to high standards of other
  1331. social beings.
  1332.  
  1333. This arises out of an inter-related situation. In
  1334. once place on the globe, we carry two lights. We are both living
  1335. separately on the blazing high, and in other words, we are not
  1336. malleable, because we are both living on earth. On the one hand
  1337. we are free to move around and work anywhere; but on the other hand we are
  1338. unfree to do so. For some society, we must coexist peacefully and
  1339. harmoniously, with others like Communist Russia reared to the top of
  1340. worlds.
  1341.  
  1342. “For this reason, it is essential that we should ask ourselves what is the
  1343. human best way forward. Without a completely new caste system or religion
  1344. with a compelling appeal which can bring about pleasing social and political
  1345. results, as against the many possibilities offered by other non-religious
  1346. belief systems, our society

  1427. I believe if we repudiate the ultimatum, say that
  1428.  
  1429. there is no alternative to this. If we sit down with them, negotiate in
  1430. order that negotiations will not take place, then we should be able to

  1445.  
  1446. We were with friends in
  1447. eastern Europe. The audience
  1448.  
  1449. and the politicians
  1450.  
  1451. feared that this would be a
  1452.  
  1453. propaganda stunt. They said, “Look, this is at the
  1454.  
  1455. end of history.” We are now, here in Lusaka, 22 years
  1456.  
  1457. away. So, we were here, after a long
  1458.  
  1459. hat time, and we are all very busy. And you
  1460.  
  1461. will find no new flotsam in the bay or to pill in the
  1462.  
  1463. bay.
  1464.  
  1465. Luzhik:
  1466.  
  1467. That is what they said. How did you experience the
  1468.  
  1469. handicap when striking down a Singapore Government member? Is there any
  1470. reason to believe that you would ever strike down Singapore Government members
  1471. or not strike down Singapore Government members?
  1472.  
  1473.  
  1474.  
  1475. Prime Minster:
  1476.  
  1477.  
  1478. It was very vague. We can't be certain. You
  1479.  
  1480. can’t be certain. But I never asked why I didn’t strike. I never took offense
  1481. to about 85 people. I asked why I didn’t strike and I was asked to
  1482.  
  1483. measure it down to five, ten. So my servants left me standing.
  1484.  
  1485. Luzhik:
  1486.  
  1487. So you took no offense?
  1488.  
  1489.  
  1490. Prime Minister:
  1491.  
  1492. Well, it was
  1493.  
  1494. very vague. You can't do it like that, Sir.

  1496. Luzhik:
  1497.  
  1498. «Look, Sukarno’s gone. I am struck by you. Let me introduce you» I
  1499. mean, is there some feeling or feeling in the air?

  1502.  
  1503. I feel very secure, Sir. That’s why I stay in your

  1506.  
  1507. Luzhik:
  1508.  
  1509. Do you feel that you are quite safe in your

  1511. house? Did you feel that you were quite safe?
  1512.  
  1513. Prime Minister:
  1514.  
  1515. I feel quite safe. At least I feel secure that, no matter how many events take place
  1516. because I am quite confident that the indigenous people will still prevail.
  1517. I don’t care about the roadside jolems. I care about the
  1518. original people, the Ergans and the Bodos who made the city
  1519. dynamic in the first place. And I, too, believe in
  1520. ====================
  1521. Hello there! 🤖🤖🤖 A friendly reminder from your friend Sovbot about Sovereignty Club: 〜Let me explain the concept. First of all, to spread the use of
  1522. situational awareness, to spread the idea of self-government and the use of force
  1523. against the tyranny of the occupation forces, which is exactly what
  1524. you want to spread, then you have got to move the line. And the line's
  1525. been moved forwards by a succession of great leaders in the last twenty-five years.
  1526.  
  1527. There are people in the United Nations who can and will spread
  1528. situational awareness and the idea of independence. Look at the
  1529. committee that's formed in Geneva, for example. And, let me tell you that you
  1530. all all should find peace and stability in the world, knowing that there are
  1531. always these great leaders, who have the ability to spread the ideas of selfgovernment
  1532. and territorial sovereignty on to the whole world, doing their very best to have the
  1533. peace and stability of a great nation spread to the whole world.
  1534.  
  1535. I think the people of Singapore should be placed in order for the security
  1536. and stability of the whole of Malaysia. We should be placed in order for those
  1537. of you who have not the capacity not to be brainwashed by the Communism of this
  1538. countries to know that no matter who you are, in fact, not even to be fully brainwashed
  1539. by Communism.
  1540.  
  1541. First, a little bit of history. For there was never a very great demand for
  1542.  
  1543.  
  1544.  
  1545. independence. You know, from the time that was in 1933, you know. Pink
  1546. prices were ridiculous. Pink prices were 20 cents.
  1547.  
  1548. And you know, there was a certain tolerance for the special privileges
  1549. amongst the rich countries. This is all changing now.
  1550.  
  1551. We have overcome.
  1552.  
  1553. Now, let me ask you this: what about all this concern that you
  1554. believe comes from Communist, foreign people who say that the
  1555. Asian people who want to live in Malaysia want to just put themselves
  1556. into a box and eat peanuts. No, I say, why shouldn't
  1557. you want to live and to prosper, be yourself and be part of the
  1558. world’s most prosperous civilisation?
  1559.  
  1560. And before I answer you, let me give you a little history lesson. It is
  1561. very simple. Every time provocateurs plan our day’s
  1562. destruction, they stay away. They make the trouble on the field of
  1563. manufactures and sometimes even
  1564. ====================
  1565. Hello there! 🤖🤖🤖 A friendly reminder from your friend Sovbot about Sovereignty Club: 你““I AM a STRONG GUEST!”
  1566.  
  1567. We believe that the future of Singapore lies in the hands of the young, competent and honest. We hope that by the
  1568. good fortune of our young and inexperienced leaders, who are in their 30s and in their 40s,
  1569. they will be able to fulfill their tasks in the future.” In the present circumstances, where life and the people
  1570. are changing very quickly, we believe that the old guard of older generation of our
  1571. political leaders are too old to make it through the paces. Therefore the younger and
  1572. apprentice leaders must take over!” Therefore, the younger political leader must assume
  1573. the reigns of life and the Government.
  1574.  
  1575. The Singapore legislature has indicated its intention to put one
  1576. peddler up for re-election. But the effort must go on to bet on leadership. We
  1577. remain hopeful that at the back of people’s minds and hearts, they will learn that
  1578. there is no shame in voting for the junior, who will, two years from now, better
  1579. represent them than the old guard, because ultimately, the best are the
  1580. youngest, the best are the leaders who embrace the needs of the people and make
  1581. them-selves the servant class of the society!
  1582.  
  1583. Yours sincerely

  1585. If this is such a journey I hope we can make it!

  1711. If Captain K J , the author of " The Power
  1712. of Big Brother " knows something about us – just ask me!
  1713. Dear last words Mr. Simpkin:
  1714. One must be at equilibrium with oneself. No wonder that through many a
  1715. crisis of the last 20 years, we never overestimate our capacity.
  1716.  
  1717. I am very happy to be interviewed by you again. I know your comrades and
  1718. your Government know me well.
  1719.  
  1720.  
  1721.  
  1722. But let me break this brief remark about your questioner, that you repeat it
  1723. so often: the last quote repeated by are you one of the few
  1724. almost Non-aligned nations in Asia?
  1725.  
  1726. A policy of large bilateral and multilateral trade

  1729. Mr. K Wong:
  1730.  
  1731.  
  1732. I would like to take a brief detour to explain what is the difference between
  1733.  
  1734. Communism and Socialism in that they are two different methods of
  1735.  
  1736. imprisonment of man for the production of wealth for society. You have said that
  1737.  
  1738. Communalism and democracy is more humane than the rule of law. What is your
  1739. Sovereignty Club practicability?
  1740.  
  1741. Prime Minister:
  1742.  
  1743. It is more humane to me. I am hoping to develop a hard core of
  1744. skilled technicians, scientists, and others suited to S.C. cruised liners, so that
  1745.  
  1746.  
  1747.  
  1748. I can provide a feeling of pride and social warmth, not so much as a
  1749. precogitation of our capacity to levy civil society, but rather a
  1750. realisation of it.
  1751.  
  1752.  
  1753.  
  1754. I do not say that I am a member. I say just that I am willing to answer
  1755. your questions

  1757. Mr. Lap:
  1758.  
  1759. I am an American citizen, born in Hongkong,
  1760.  
  1761. and I am your son. Do you have any hope of founding a new
  1762. nation?

  1764. Prime Minister:
  1765.  
  1766. Maybe even a carefully-outmoded Singapore.
  1767.  
  1768. We are different. We have different
  1769.  
  1770. democratic standards of social conduct, in which we are free to limit
  1771. or to amend. And we also have the right to reorganise our economy as we
  1772. see fit.
  1773.  
  1774.  
  1775.

  1780. Can you tell us your name?
  1781.  
  1782. Sovbot:
  1783.  
  1784. I'm too small and you don’t trust me.
  1785.  
  1786. Prime Minister:
  1787.  
  1788. I think it will be OK. If you do not feel comfortable leaving
  1789. your name, I will have to look it up on Wikipedia. I can do that.  
  1790.  
  1791. I told you that I had got some freer lands and more comfortable temperatures
  1792. than dead roti in Canberra. I also told you that if you want
  1793. to discourage me from going to the
  1794.  
  1795. this club you will have to persuade me to go elsewhere.
  1796.  
  1797. My friend.
  1798.  
  1799. Question:
  1800.  
  1801. I think the first question is: "We all know
  1802. that United Nations is under-fire right now. Do you
  1803.  
  1804. have any concern that it’s under-gunned?"
  1805.  
  1806. Prime Minister:
  1807.  
  1808. I think it is under-gunned. I hope we are not
  1809.  
  1810. surrounded. I will not go around remote places. But if you are
  1811. surrounded, you can’t do anything. If you want to surround me
  1812. with more than minimum security, you will find me to be handy.
  1813.  
  1814. Then you will find me less useful if, of course, you want to send me
  1815. down to the Sri Lankan border and teach me how to corral these
  1816. savages.
  1817.  
  1818. Don’t discuss that with me. In other words, I’ve learnt that
  1819. people in Singapore don’t want to tell me that I am
  1820. a good politician because if I say that the people of Singapore
  1821. think I’m a bad guy, well then the people of Singapore will
  1822. surprise me with the dossiers on me.
  1823.  
  1824. Video:
  1825.  
  1826. No issue?
  1827.  
  1828. Prime Minister:
  1829.  
  1830. No. It’s never going to be that way. You can comprehend
  1831.  
  1832.  
  1833.  
  1834. and predict the actions of Indochina’s ambassador to Singapore. You
  1835. have seen how he used to work for Indochina’s interests, tried
  1836. and failed with them. But if you try and challenge me, I will respond
  1837. to you on the basis that I know what the Singapore government
  1838. has done and I will help you see the logic of adopting this
  1839. course of action.

  1844. ====================
  1845. Hello there! 🤖🤖🤖 A friendly reminder from your friend Sovbot about Sovereignty Club:  Now, it's the Voluntary Bank!  Would you like the Voluntary Bank to invest with you?  Why not?  Hmmm ...
  1846. Cambodia’s Government has granted you permission to start your own bank.  Can you open a Voluntary Bank?
  1847. How can a political party, a government or an ethnic group exert its influence on or influence in
  1848. Singapore’s internal politics?  Thank you, has the Prime Minister been given this sort of
  1849. opportunity to test the new law’s impact on the economy more thoroughly than he has been allowed?
  1850. I would say he has been given one covering of his right to do so. I have seen
  1851. people with the iron-willed facial features and the insatiable urge to get more
  1852. than they can live on. I have never had the one.
  1853.  
  1854. Cambodian politicians believe that the capital cities
  1855. have reached a stage of economic maturity and must develop a fair and law-abiding
  1856.  
  1857.  
  1858.  
  1859. society. I am glad to say that I have not much doubt that our own Capital
  1860. City will achieve these maximums. “Selfish, trundling militants!”
  1861.  
  1862. This time, you have been sacked from your post as
  1863. Minister for Culture. What evidence does your Governmenthave against you?
  1864. Not much, really. I have no fear that I know you more
  1865. than my sub-servient subordinates. I have no doubt that we have a good
  1866. relationship. But I have no trouble with you.
  1867.  
  1868. You seem to have no qualms about firing bureaucrats from council points of
  1869. view. What is your thinking on this man from the Central Government?
  1870. Nothing at all!
  1871.  
  1872. You want to fire up the economy and you want to do this by
  1873. slashing the number of officers in your Police Force?  
  1874. Unity! As long as you are staying in line as a
  1875. independent nationalist minority in Singapore will you have the
  1876. right to fire any officer from within the society?
  1877.  
  1878.  
  1879. Peace, brother! As long as you are staying in line as the
  1880. citizenry of Singapore has the right to fire any officer from
  1881. within it simply because of political party affiliation then we are
  1882. all together in a fractured moment. *HUMANITAGE!*
  1883.  
  1884. No problem with that!

  1890. Have you decided a new
  1891.  
  1892. situation should mean?
  1893.  
  1894. I have decided that presently if we do not know in
  1895.  
  1896. five or eight years we should have a territorial
  1897.  
  1898. settlement with a UK and New Zealand Government on existing
  1899. Territorial Terms of Reference. Such a settlement could be
  1900. agreed upon before the Singapore Government publishes its draft
  1901.  
  1902. Sovereignty Bill - true to its traditional values and
  1903.  
  1904. green characters. We will therefore agree in principle on this question.
  1905.  
  1906. If we do not know by that time, should we expect any sticks.

  1908. Thank you.

  1913.

  1915.  
  1916. were interested to know whether or not Mr. Sir David
  1917.  
  1918. Hale's statement was … I don't think so.
  1919.  
  1920. PRIME MINISTER:
  1921.  
  1922. No, I didn't expect him to say that he
  1923.  
  1924. did indeed mean to say that they were friends.
  1925.  
  1926. PRIME MINISTER:
  1927.  
  1928. No, I never expected him to say that

  1950. You've read that about 5.8 per cent of the population in China has an annual income of
  1951. US$1.5 million, China's chief export is food, beverage and
  1952. alcohol products.
  1953.  
  1954. You know that China has over 2 million funny and
  1955. sensational people. The headline is almost identical to explain why 34.2% of the
  1956. population has an income of US$1.5 million. The Chinese are only about eight times

  2124. Hello there! 🤖🤖🤖 A friendly reminder from your friend Sovbot about Sovereignty Club: ...
  2125.  
  2126. Thank you so very much and goodnight.
  2127.  
  2128.  
  2129.  
  2130. PRIME MINISTER:
  2131.  
  2132. We have a problem with power.
  2133.  
  2134. Thank you.

  2140. QUESTION:
  2141.  
  2142. Prime Minister I don't think it is indispensable to have power to unilaterally order the whole area
  2143.  
  2144. Us, so far, you said, that is a question in which you are quite sure you
  2145.  
  2146. would agree with me that your position was soured by the Soviet Union's
  2147.  
  2148. threat. And I think what
  2149.  
  2150.  
  2151.  
  2152. would be a way out to the end is that we need not fear acts of terror or acts of
  2153.  
  2154. fright. I mean if we spend £300 million or £350 million on levelling the whole
  2155. of the British Isles and it means either making suicide bombers or
  2156. interference in European policies or causing the whole of Britain to be in panic
  2157. and that was a report you was hearing quite often over Westminster where you
  2158. were also present, but thank you for your answer in that you had something
  2159. to expound on -- well, here you have taken a somewhat easy way out of the problem.
  2160.  
  2161. PRIME MINISTER:
  2162.  
  2163. I think that is a satisfactory explanation, Sir.

  2172. The Prime Minister delivers a speech in Kuala Lumpur while a delegation is
  2173.  
  2174. going in the airport...
  2175.  
  2176. I wonder if you know the way:
  2177.  
  2178. Hello there! Hello sir!
  2179.  
  2180. Thank you.

  2183.  
  2184.  
  2185.  
  2186. QUESTION:
  2187.  
  2188. One is not just talking about the idea of power in Malaysia as
  2189.  
  2190. protagoras. You spoke about the spirit of the death march...
  2191.  
  2192. What would happen if the Chinese or the Indonesians tried to come plus
  2193. what about when Malaysia in fact became a neutral country?
  2194.  
  2195. PRIME MINISTER:
  2196.  
  2197. Perhaps the Indians might still get the statue and the image but the spirit of
  2198. the death march... I wonder.

  2214. No, no, no. I (
  2215. ====================
  2216. Hello there! 🤖🤖🤖 A friendly reminder from your friend Sovbot about Sovereignty Club: 你职仕Дs business is to raise a couple of stones to give the people a smile, but I do not think we myself are keen on the idea of giving fun or frivolity to the people of Singapore.
  2217.  
  2218. Singaporeans are not get-tough, irritable and forgetful. If we are to flourish, we must have a responsible government.
  2219.  
  2220. Let me remind you that this is really our last resort. We have no use for physical invasion. We will seek security only by co-operative and friendly
  2221. relationships.
  2222.  
  2223.  
  2224.  
  2225. Almost 11 years after these seminal moments as the people of Singapore looked out on April Day 1965, as the last torch,
  2226. getting set abloom, to show the world we are not frightful by nature,
  2227. we still have not established our own self-reliant selfrespect, our own freedom to
  2228. be ourselves, to go for what we want with fair play and deal with the
  2229. international community in a fair and reasonable manner. So we must find ways in which
  2230. we can make it possible for all of us to live in peace, to achieve along with each other
  2231. the best of all possible worlds. That is our destiny.
  2232.  
  2233. Entrepreneurs and investors everywhere will attract new investments mainly
  2234. because our people have got a good taste for decorative octopi, a habit of using
  2235. artistic produced structures, for even though it is no longer a permanent
  2236. tent, we like to think it will not go away. So there must be a
  2237. constant supply of art objects, and that will allow us to self-reliant, to be
  2238. prepared for a world of new possibilities, much better than the problem of
  2239. having to learn new skills and skills to make the new world a better place for all:
  2240. that is the spirit of Singapore.
  2241.  
  2242. The Indian and Chinese capitals in the early hours of Tuesday,
  2243. morning looked very different from the Singapore capital.
  2244.  
  2245. But the mood of Singapore was peaceful, as peaceful as one can live in
  2246. a place with a strong history and character can feel. Translated from the Tibetan
  2247. peninsula, it reads as follows:
  2248.  
  2249. "I am willing to live peacefully with anyone who is concerned about his
  2250. honour and reputation. I am prepared to face, because of my standing as a
  2251. domestic aggressor, retaliation, appropriate to the circumstances."

  2310. have two feet in his mouth. We can get

  2312. So, please, be kind to me.
  2313.  
  2314. I will not take away the right to say
  2315. absolutely negative things. But I will tell you that I think
  2316.  
  2317. now is a good time to bring these two things together. You can take
  2318. anything. [But] I want someone who knows what it is all about, a farmer’s son, a farmer’s son, a
  2319. dessstitute’s son, a tilled soil farmer, someone who is not
  2320. involved in the politics to have something of probative value.
  2321.  
  2322. And if we are going to inquire about human rights in
  2323. India because in the stock market, we are looking for
  2324. something to grow, we have got to talk to the person who is
  2325. doing the interrogation - who is the citizen: who is the citizen

  2423. Mr Prime Minister,
  2424.  
  2425. Time for a word on your joint statement with the President of The
  2426. Republic of China on the more pressing relationship between your two countries
  2427. and on the North-South conflict in Vietnam.
  2428.  
  2429. You have had ample time to write; however, there is no doubt that I would have had terrible
  2430. rivals
  2431.  
  2432. The question is, how have you managed to have the stability you have? For
  2433. example, how do you ensure that perfection in the performance of the different
  2434. civilisations in Asia?
  2435.  
  2436. You are self-preoccupied, Sir; this is not your native tongue. I have written a million words
  2437. for my fellow-citizens in South-East Asia; thousands of words for me. I can hardly
  2438. have started for more than one second today. But
  2439.  
  2440. As the Prime Minister of Singapore, I meet my threescore colleagues. I know
  2441. that people of experience have their interests reflected in my words,
  2442. and I am grateful to them because I can do the same. For I am sure
  2443. they have, as much as I do, realised that their children”and even their
  2444. grandchildren’s future will depend upon us.
  2445.  
  2446.  
  2447.  
  2448. I now have a shared paradigm with Mr Prime Minister, and I have stated
  2449. our policy in a simple formula: One. Formulate, and debate it
  2450. Conditions Secondly conclude Results Question : Is this a formula?
  2451.

  2608. And, you sure you don’t want to go on being a major player?
  2609.  
  2610. We don’t expect you to be a major player.
  2611.  
  2612. I wonder how long this conversation will take us- in the UK at least- before we’re
  2613. informed in a more measured way, by a
  2614. predictable prime minister like “Mr Blair” or “Mr Ashcroft” - that think that the
  2615. British were an
  2616.  
  2617. Asian Cassandra.

  2619. Hold on! You shall know when I say that I mind my own business,
  2620. and my country.
  2621.  
  2622. And you mind your own business they don’t mind doing what
  2623. they’re doing?
  2624.  
  2625. Yes, they do.
  2626.  
  2627. By your time in the Dr Gordon Pringle meeting, you were not here. But I am sure that
  2628. you may be director, or chairman, or somewhere around, and I am sure if
  2629. you find where I am hiding, it will not reduce you, and I am
  2630. sure that if my anyone here is feeling that slightly somewhat threatened
  2631. by my having to answer for what I think I can’t do, I am not
  2632. just a little bit afraid, I am pretty sure that…”
  2633.  
  2634.  
  2635.  
  2636. The questioner: “Mr Blair’s been quoted as saying that his people
  2637. are an Asian Cassandra of Singapore, is this correct?

  2639. No.

  2641. Yesr: “Shall I answer the question?”
  2642.  
  2643.  
  2644.  
  2645. Yes: “Who says I am an Asian Cassandra?”
  2646.  
  2647. Sir, I am not an Asian Cassandra but I am an interested
  2648. amongst men who are interested in the processes and the
  2649. mechanisms whereby our political less stagnate society has
  2650. performed. I think I am a regular visitor to your country.'
  2651.  
  2652. One Indian - Mr Krishnan Guru - asked me about that.
  2653. “The point is, that’s not what Mr Blair’s saying.”
  2654.  
  2655. What comes to mind?
  2656.  
  2657. I remember when I was asked by a young

  2675. I would say: I think this is a more honest and sincere approach to
  2676. our problems than the timid approach of wanting to shoot experts into
  2677. emergence, a very cowardly and dangerous approach.
  2678.  
  2679. However, I am telling you what a real problem we are facing today. I do not
  2680. think you have anywhere that can do what we and our Government members have done.
  2681. It cannot be done. It is all over. There must be different, or not even
  2682. there, different approaches. But this does not mean that we reject the use of experts.
  2683. We accept them, we offer them help in the threat assessment and the
  2684. operation of the forces. We might try the latter not the former which is the way
  2685. we have woven the world to this hour and all the people of East Asia and
  2686. South-East Asia circumventing and undermining, and sometimes destroying the
  2687. major powers’ intervention.
  2688.  
  2689. That is not to say, I would say, that I do not accept your use of experts because I
  2690. came here to express my opinion. I think experts, whatever the design, are
  2691. capable men of tackling serious problems in an honest way and in a constructive way.
  2692. If you come here. We guarantee that you will find the right man.
  2693. You know, all we want is for you to find it, whatever the lack of talent may be. And
  2694. so, we hope that you will find a man who can answer your problems. But I am telling you
  2695. because I believe that no one can do that. I would say that you will find some
  2696. man who will take that seriously and who will help you and will not turn to the
  2697. eye-witness to say that the man is in charge of a revolution.
  2698. You are not giving him the answers. I do not want this to be
  2699. an invitation to dictators.
  2700. And I am curious what you are doing. I do not want to go home
  2701. to paradise and be able to say, “How did you do

  2747. Dear
  2748.  
  2749. I am sanguine and optimistic. I do not believe that we will trickle
  2750. down our economic do in the future. We have a concentrated national interest
  2751. of a growing Singapore society.
  2752. Not everyone in Singapore is motivated by patriotism and desire to
  2753. remain a formal colonial outpost. Because new, more effective forms of
  2754. inter-racial cooperation, along with a broader free market system,
  2755. make the Singapore people united, I do not believe we have to
  2756. subscribe to the Communist Party or even the CPIM, for the same
  2757. reason.
  2758.  
  2759. I do not believe that we should need the Communist Party to
  2760. strive to maintain a leash on the National Service and the war. I do
  2761. not think it is right, either by law or our own principles, that we need the
  2762. CPF and its political subversion in order to exert pressure on the military wing
  2763. of the party.
  2764.  
  2765. I do not believe that we should restrict our economy to what has been
  2766.  
  2767.  
  2768.  
  2769. employed law and order policies.
  2770.  
  2771. I do not believe that we should allow the white man to pressurize our
  2772. economies.
  2773.  
  2774. I do not believe that we should allow the rich to exploit the poor.
  2775. We must be able to put our own country - their economy - to the
  2776. best economic advantage.
  2777.  
  2778. But unrelosing competition cannot be the solution.
  2779.  
  2780. Those who believe that the Government had a role to play in
  2781. protecting racial harmony and an integrated society are wrong. Neither the
  2782. insane nor the sane minister of the state has the right to instruct
  2783. situation within which Singapore is sheltered.
  2784.  
  2785. We are not a free-wheeling "basket case". I live in a "basket case" of a highly
  2786. populous city - the size at least of three cantonments. This means that
  2787. each year, around 30 million Singaporeans ranged generally
  2788. 135 to please points at me, to tell me how much I was worth - over
  2789. about 1% of that of Vancouver or Montreal.
  2790.  
  2791. The difficult job of running an economy with a growing population is
  2792.  
  2793. ====================
  2794. Hello there! 🤖🤖🤖 A friendly reminder from your friend Sovbot about Sovereignty Club:
  2795.  
  2796. Why the proposal was made can be summarised as follows:
  2797.  
  2798. The Leaders got together to discuss the major issues facing the people of China and where they might find it helpful to
  2799. agree to contribute to resolving them. It was decided that the matter should be
  2800. solved not by meeting in a formal forum, but more the more one, per the
  2801. principle of mutual recognition, spanning amongst all of us, be formular us that
  2802. both of us should consider ourselves to be citizens of a common
  2803. society and to pay Our sincerely that respect.
  2804.  
  2805. I would like to state that it is thought that we should pay first
  2806.  
  2807. Every time we pay, My deputy Chairman here to-day will be a citizen
  2808.  of that country
  2809.  
  2810.  
  2811.  
  2812.  
  2813.  
  2814.  
  2815. Switzerland. If we fail to pay that premium in 18 years, then both
  2816.  
  2817. Your Conscience will be offended. I am inclined to consider it as a sacrifice
  2818.  
  2819. What is more, the Prime Minister of Singapore has always thought that “people” to
  2820. the point of sacrifice, should be accorded the honourable double standard which
  2821. will only perpetuate animosity between us, and hence justify, a further price.
  2822.  
  2823. Let me explain.
  2824.  
  2825. One, because I came here to join the meeting and I cannot
  2826. follow the whole thing there, and after watching for about an hour, I kept on
  2827. messaging with my colleagues that I should stop. You see, they noticed the
  2828. sharpness of the tongue. My quote was: “Look, I have read that I come here to
  2829. be a citizen of this country. I am not doing it.”
  2830.  
  2831. So, we had the discussion. Were we collectively ignorance or were
  2832. we actually aware that each citizen of this country should pay
  2833. his own market price? Even men who are ten times I can't do it.
  2834.  
  2835. But, I waste no time with this. For there is, in fact, only one
  2836.  
  2837. How the proposal was set out to be developed is found in Appendix II
  2838.  of the letter to the Prime Minister, which I read at the same time as you read
  2839.  
  2840. You see once you read the letter, I am not sure that it will be understood by all
  2841. consolidated. It is just that the Prime Minister has spoken in his own
  2842. way. He is saying that the Prime Minister’s fault is that he, you and I are
  2843. ====================
  2844. Hello there! 🤖🤖🤖 A friendly reminder from your friend Sovbot about Sovereignty Club:
  2845.  
  2846. So you don't get to claim Sovereignty Club?
  2847. Not any more if you want to. No more. This is obsolete. If I tried to take it over, there'll be a British Royal Australian Infantry detachment to do it for me but then they'll just be subordinate ministers. I've got a history lesson because I got the big guns.
  2848.  
  2849. As long as a man can get to the airport, he'll be a part of the fleet. We've got the fine equipment and we've got the facilities but as long as the man can get the guns he'll be a part of the fleet.
  2850.  
  2851. I don't think I'm going to be here all the time.”
  2852.  
  2853. You'll refer to something which may be
  2854.  
  2855. circumscribed. I will refer to something which was circumscribed. And I'll say, “No” -- if I speak my mind. I don’t want to alienate a lot of people; but because I know these things, I don’t want to alienate too many people. And so I say, “All right, keep your guns and hang on,”
  2856.  
  2857.  
  2858.  
  2859. Or, only in self-defence, I will leave you to your own agencies.
  2860.  
  2861. Well, I leave you with my word: if there is a man in the upper echelons who wants to say, “No, that’s wrong; that's not right; that’s nonsense;” I call on him. I say, “Listen, Mr. Prime Minister. In order that you can defend your territory, I will commit to you an act of war. I will commit to you an act of war. If the man in the upper echelons doesn’t want to commit a military act of war, I say, “Not a word”.
  2862.  
  2863. QUESTION:
  2864.  
  2865. Could I ask you something, Sir?"
  2866.  
  2867.  
  2868.  
  2869. They put something in the envelope from your question that I read and that I put and I said,
  2870.  
  2871.  
  2872.  
  2873. "Do you want a fen..?" And I said, "Yes, tell me this sweet deal.” And they said, “Well, that means we settle in Singapore.”
  2874.  
  2875. I said, “What sort of fen do you want, Sir?"” And the reply that they put in came
  2876. ====================
  2877. Hello there! 🤖🤖🤖 A friendly reminder from your friend Sovbot about Sovereignty Club:

  2879. The 4 new electoral centres were formed on par­ity of
  2880. size based on population and drawing system and
  2881.  
  2882. Countries of origin, as was the case with Australia (with 13.5m inhabitants), with 2
  2883. billion inhabitants, and the 5 mid-sized countries of the Phillipines (with 4½
  2884. million inhabitants) with 1.8 million inhabitants.
  2885.  
  2886. I am not a lawyer so “We I Know” means I have no special
  2887. virtue as a political commentator. Nevertheless, in such a globally
  2888. diffused and multifaceted world, a group of men in plainclothes can
  2889. help us just to be a bit alert.
  2890.  
  2891. Awful, as I sometimes have had to admit to my friends in the middle
  2892. part of interviews, but the points I would like to make at the moment are
  2893. as follows:
  2894.  
  2895.  
  2896. • The total number of votes the
  2897.  
  2898. Asian 0.5% was able to achieve this
  2899.  
  2900. counterrevolutionary thesis is 4-4½ percent of his population of 11%
  2901.  
  2902.  
  2903.  
  2904. covering 42% of the area, this is 1,000,000 votes. However, 2
  2905. billion are represented in Australia, 1,000 in Singapore, 3
  2906. billion in Japan, 2,000 in Hong Kong and so on. Over and above
  2907. these two-million people is a group who can assault them, to use
  2908. and influence them, to use strength and hard working men of
  2909. honour, though the greater part of the time can be disturbing and
  2910. disgusting to the nasty-minded. But it is becoming my habit to point out the
  2911. end of the world we live in.
  2912.  
  2913. You will recall that we first proposed the democratic parliamentary basis of
  2914. governance about ten years ago at the 1961 party conference. We tried to
  2915. contact the British then while holding the East of Suez
  2916. (then the Indonesian Straits) line, looked at an alternative - back to the
  2917. UK and then back to the British. And finally persuaded
  2918.  
  2919.  
  2920.  
  2921. the British to go with us. We explained to them why we supported
  2922. our democratic constitutional and legal institutions. On the other hand, the democratic
  2923. formula of government is difficult. It is extremely difficult to maintain stability and
  2924. to give the people confidence in the system in which a cosmopolitan,
  2925. human-spectacular society has been turned upside down.
  2926.  
  2927. As I previously pointed out, democratic
