The folly of building monuments to LKY

In Uncategorized on 27/03/2015 at 4:32 am

Puking over the continuing tributes from our constructive, nation-building media and assorted brown-nosers* to Lee Kuan Yew, and the the calls to build a statue or renaming the airport after him, I’m reminded of

Illustrated poem: 'Ozymandias' by Percy Bysshe Shelley

Why don’t juz they build a shrine to him? Here’s shumething to inspire them

What really annoys me is that they are praising someone who had contempt for the praises and flattery from the masses: if he could rise from the dead, he’d admonish the rabble. And taz actually one reason I admire him.

To me, the cont’d prosperity of S’pore is monument enough

Si monumentum requiris circumspice
Reader, if you seek his monument, look about you.
On Wren’s tomb in St. Paul’s Cathedral.

Yes, Yes I know that there were others involved in the building of St Paul’s as others were involved in building S’pore’s prosperity.

And, “He found S’pore a city of bricks and left it a city of skyscrapers” a variation of

I found Rome a city of bricks and left it a city of marble.

Augustus

Two really terrible sa kas

We are all Lee Kuan Yew’s children. We would not be here if not for vision passion and determination of Mr Lee, had built a developed nation: SMS Masagos Zulkifi

Some say that he was ruthless. But children of his political foes had rights and opportunities like any other children because this is Singapore. – NMP Chia Yong Yong. I think her brain is as useless as her legs.

    Such unsensitive remarks to the next of kin. Just shows her imaturity. Sigh.

    • So why you call his mum a prostitute on Facebook?

      • As usual you descend to this. God Bless you.

      • No you descended into the gutter with an insult to his mother, someone my family knew. You were factually wrong. She was a baba housewife from a respectable family. Yet you called her a prostitute.

  4. I did not, and would never descend to your level of telling a lie. It is futile trying to convince yourself that telling a lie often enough would make it the truth. Regards.

    • Waz interesting is that you are not denying that you posted an insult to LKY’s mum on Facebook. You go this way and that. But you never deny that you called her a Prostitute.

  5. My response was ” I did not” . Easy as that.

  6. It’s obvious you are on a witch hunt. Period.

  7. There you go yet again. Needless to continue this meaningless to and fro. Goodbye.
