Lee Kuan Yew On Chinese ‘superiority’

Lee Kuan Yew - A modern follower of the Confucius

To begin with we don’t have the ingredients of a nation, the elementary factors, a homogenous population, common language, common culture and common destiny. (via We saw Sri Lanka: Lee Kwan Yew says it again).

How tough it must have been

He is talking about the difficulty of ‘creating’ the nation-state of Singapore – with a population of 45 lakhs (4.5 million). To put that in perspective, that is little less than twice the population of AIDS-affected in India. And to think that India believes that the success of Singapore has any lessons.

Confucius - The Chinese Government loves him!

Lee Kuan Yew, who is sure that India will never grow beyond 60%-70% of China and how the Confucian ethic is superior.

Platonic-Confucian axis

The axis of Confucian-Platonic authoritarian, ‘wise’ rulers was the overwhelming model for the world. Property rights remained with less than o.1% of the people. Under the CRER principle, (cuius regio, eius religio, meaning whose land, his religion; CRER) even the personal and private aspects of a person, like religious beliefs of the individual, were subject to State approval.

One thing, Mr.Lee, why don’t you ever talk about how beneficial it was for you (meaning Singapore, since  your family practically owns and runs Singapore) to become a client state of the US. That is the one lesson that Singapore can teach, Mr.Lee.

    LKY and his team are running a dictatorial regime in Singapore. I hope human rights commitee finds the way minorities are supressed and maids abused in Singapore. Let them not get away

    This guy actually made comments and displayed chinese chauvanism by saying chinese are superior to other people and pushed Singaporeans hard. He strippped the human element out of the locals so they run after materialism and vilify minorities and consider them some low forms of human. No malay can before airforce pilot in Singapore becos he thinks they are not trust worthy. So much for a multicultural state called Singapore
