“我们将要有一个知识阶级,大约是我们现有的3倍,这将会带来动力,一个把我们往前推的强力引擎。”,

- 李光耀,2010年7月28日

只要看看新加坡最近的历史就可以知道李光耀的知识阶级干了些什么事。并非他人,而是由他的儿子李显龙总理领导的新加坡知识精英层,所制定的那些遭人非议的政策,正在慢慢的蚕食着新加坡的社会结构,以及系统化的在瓦解这个国家赖以发展的的那个以多年辛勤劳作树立起来的建国基础。

一个亳无意义不计后果追求发展的思维,以及狭隘的关注GDP增长导致一个门戶大开的移民政策正在考验着这个国家的极限。突如其来的人口冲击了体制,交通设施的缝隙就要爆裂。地铁列车擁挤到水泄不通,公路上堵塞着排满了汽车。我们的医疗体系也出现了紧张状况,在医院轮候病床的时间己达到史无前例的新高。房价不断的攀升飙涨,也是因为政府缺乏普通常识,不知道未雨绸缪去计划并建设足够的住房基本建设来容纳蜂拥而至的外来移民。当生活费还在持续的上升,许多新加坡人的收入要不是停滞不前就是已经下跌。很明显的,新加坡人是永远都不可能去退休了。

正在稳步上升着的犯罪,卖淫,赌博成瘾,贩卖人口,族群贫民区,与其他社会问题都和引进‘外来人才’以及吸引周边地区的富人前来定居有所关系。新加坡的转型经济是依赖外来资金财富的流入,尤其是通过大力促销的综合度假村和私人银行服务,这意味着新加坡经济的繁荣和萧条更容易受到外来因素的影响。

与此同时,政府在毫无止歇的犯错。默沙勒末的逃脱,地铁总站在毫不知情下让人入侵,都暴露了新加坡在国家安全上的监控体系是失败的。多起‘50年一遇’的豪雨成灾,却被负责的部长以‘非预期现象’的借口来推诿,这让长者和他的‘知识分子’的‘预测’能力都蒙羞。

最荒唐可笑的是去花费约4亿元纳税人的金钱去举办一个没有意义的,很少人知道,更没有多少国人关心,却为新加坡人的日常生活带来诸多不便的运动会。

非也 – 新加坡的知识阶级既没有活力亦没有动力。新加坡的‘知识阶级’事实上只是一群在李光耀个人庇护下的书呆子,他们从未经过火焰的洗礼去证明他们领导国家是合法合理的。新加坡的‘知识阶级’没有真心诚意去关心国家与人民的幸福,反之,这是一群自私自利的人,一心一意的以天文数字的薪金装满自已的裤袋,藉着攀附这位自大独裁者的衣襟尽可能的长期收割利益。

这位长者已经呆过了他受欢迎的期限。他那错误的政治思维把国家带入了一个错误的途径。在没有了过去的那批党中坚分子(吴庆瑞等人),也就没有了足够的智慧去抗衡他的疯狂。

李光耀的‘知识阶级’不仅仅是个有害国家的馊主意,它也必然会把新加坡弄得一败涂地。

Lee Kuan Yew’s “Intellectual Class” will Run Singapore Into the Ground
Under The Willow Tree
Friday, July 30, 2010

“We are going to have an intellectual class, about maybe three times as big as what you have now and that will give us the dynamism, the powerful engine to carry us forward faster.”

- Lee Kuan Yew, 28th July, 2010

Just take a look at Singapore’s recent history to see what Lee Kuan Yew’s “Intellectual Class” has delivered. Led by none other than his own son, PM Lee Hsien Loong, Singapore’s “elite intellectuals” have bandied about policies which are slowly eating away at Singapore’s social fabric and which are systematically undoing years of hard work and the foundation upon which this country has arisen.

A senseless growth-at-all-costs mentality and narrow minded focus on GDP growth has led to an open-door immigration policy which is testing the limits of this country. Due to the sudden population shock to the system, transportation infrastructure is bursting at the seams. Trains are overcrowded and overpacked, and the roads are chock full of cars. Our healthcare infrastructure is showing capacity strains, with waiting times for hospital beds raising to all time highs. Housing price inflation in Singapore is shooting through the roof due to a lack of common sense on the part of of the Government to provide and plan for adequate housing infrastructure to accommodate the influx of foreign migrants. And while the cost of living continues to soar, incomes for most of Singapore society have either stagnated or fallen. Ostensibly, Singaporeans can now never ever retire.

Crime, prostitution, gambling addiction, human trafficking, ethnic enclaves, and other social problems associated with the importation of ‘foreign talent’ and a luring of the regional uber rich to the country, are steadily on the rise. The restructuring of Singapore’s economy to depend on foreign monetary inflows, particularly through the inordinate promotion of integrated resorts and the private banking sectors, has meant that Singapore’s economy will be more highly exposed to the booms and busts of external sector.

Meanwhile, Government failure seems to recur without reprieve. The escape of Mas Selamat and the undetected trespassing into the MRT depots have revealed systemic failures in Singapore’s national security. The multiple recurrence of “50-year floods”, absurdly labeled as “freak events” by the minister responsible, has put to shame the “forecasting” ability of the old man and his “intellectuals”.

And what must surely look ridiculous must be the unjustified expenditure of almost $400m of taxpayers’ money to organise a little known sporting event which hardly anybody in the country cares about and which is mostly an inconvenience to the daily lives of ordinary Singaporeans.

No – Singapore’s intellectual class is neither vibrant nor ‘dynamic’. Singapore’s “intellectual class” is really a bunch of book-smart goons hiding behind the screens of Lee Kuan Yew’s personal approval, who have not been through the fire necessary to prove their legitimacy to leadership of the nation. Singapore’s ‘intellectual class’ really has no genuine concern for the prosperity and well being of the country and its citizens, but instead is a group of self-interested individuals bent only on padding their pockets with astronomically large paychecks for as long as they can, while riding on the coat-tails of an authoritarian megalomaniac.

The old man has seriously overstayed his welcome. His misguided ideology is bringing the country down the wrong path. Without the stalwarts of years past (Goh Keng Swee, etc.), there is no wisdom to counteract his madness.

Lee Kuan Yew’s “intellectual class” is not only a bad idea for the country – it will run Singapore into the ground.
