More Singaporeans Should Be The Ripples That We Are!

Robert F. Kennedy said, “Few will have the greatness to bend history itself, but each of us can work to change a small portion of events. It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.

I'm still out of Singapore and out of sync with the latest development at home due to my kampong break (chill out?) and limited access to internet. I have some wifi time now and I'm delighted to share my thoughts.

If PM Lee Hsien Loong and President Tony Tan did not and do not intend to reply to Hazel Poa's request for the PM and President to call for a referendum on the 6.9M, it shows the contempt they have for the people. After the protest at Hong Lim Park on 16 Feb 2013, do they not realise that Singaporeans are very sick and tired of the current over-crowdedness and that we are very unhappy with the "no hue" = "can't be bothered" attitude of the PAP government?

Some say, "Life's a bitch and then we die." I do not agree. I believe, "Make Life Joyful and then we go to a better place." It can be joyful if we do what's right and honourable even if we are not rich or powerful. It is most joyful if we do our part to help the future generation to have a better life. The joy is overwhelming if we stand up against injustice and overcome fear to unite as one people to truly build a democratic society based on justice and equality. For the sake of our children and our children's children, we must continue to enlighten as many Singaporeans as possible of the scary future that is coming our way. To get them to energize with us to create waves out of ripples to bring forth a Singapore that takes care of all Singaporeans and not, I repeat not, only the PAP elitists and the rich and famous!

By not solving the current infrastructural screw-ups and having the audacity to blatantly announce and proceed with the "6.9M Import" is to rape Singaporeans not only in the 69 position but also anally and orally. Yes, its 3-in-1 and they think they can do anything they like as if they are God's gifts to Singaporeans!

Sedikit sedikit lama lama jadi bukit. That is what Robert F Kennedy said it in English,
“Few will have the greatness to bend history itself, but each of us can work to change a small portion of events. It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.” 
― Robert F. Kennedy

My friends, my dear fellow Singaporeans, we cannot let the current uncaring government walk all over us with their hubris and disregard for all of us. We must continuously enlighten our fellow citizens of the predicament we are in so that with unity and numbers, we can improve ourselves to fear not the PAP government so that we can make Singapore a better place not for the elitist PAP and their cronies but for all Singaporeans regardless of race, language or religion to build a democratic society based on justice and equality.

Love,
