After Kenny Rogers on investing and Bacchus on partying back to macabre tales. It’s the Christmas season, you know.
Horror of horrors: Posters on TR find it hard to accept that MM Lee has many fans in M’sia including M’sian dissent and blogger Raja Putra whose servers are based here.
They shouldn’t be. Many M’sian Chinese and Indians find MM’s “M’sian Malaysia” where meritocracy is the rule attractive because it is the opposite of the racially-based Bumiputera policy which gives Muslim Malays certain privileges. They also think that this meritocracy has made S’pore a better place to earn a living than in M’sia.
They also like the fact that he allows M’sians to work here, without insisting that they become citizens.
And finally perhaps they admire him for writing-out the Malays from S’pore? Remember he said in September, “We’re largely Chinese and Indians”. This despite the official statistics showing that the Malays are 19% of the population, the second largest ethnic group.
Now if it is true that the Malays are no longer the second largest ethnic group, and the official stats don’t reflect this fact, this a horror of horrors. Where else are the official stats no longer the reflection of the facts on the ground?
Seriously, back to MM. The New Testament is correct when it says”A prophet is not without honour, but in his own country, and among his own kin, and in his own house” and “No prophet is accepted in his own country”.
The neighbours see the feet of clay not apparent to those faraway?
