The Singapore frog is almost cooked already

Nominated MP, Professor Thio Li-Ann was wrong when she said in parliament yesterday that “repealing Section 377A is the first step of a radical, political agenda which will subvert social morality, the common good and undermine our liberties”.

That first step was taken long ago when:

1) They legalized abortion.

2) We gave in to the loud spoken minority and liberalized our censorship laws. The film rating system in our country is a joke. Pornography is disguised as ‘artistic’ entertainment and shown in our third-rate cinemas. Children in school uniform openly rent NC16 and M18 videos from our shops.

2) We made the decision to build casinos in this country after standing firm for 40 years.

3) Our dear leaders openly promised that 377A will not be enforced. Dr Stuart Koe, the gay activist was right when he said, “To have a law that they articulate they are not going to enforce really brings the law into disrepute.”

Have you heard of the ‘boiled frog syndrome’? It is said that if a frog is placed in boiling water, it will jump out, but if it is placed in cold water that is slowly heated, it will never jump out. Such a frog can be boiled alive without knowing it.

In our case, the frog is almost cooked already.

The time China opens up to the world, from a Communist state to a country practising socialism with 'Chinese Characteristics', in other words moving towards capitalism, one prominent leader remarked: "when we open the window some flies will come in". Similarly, Singapore wants to be a global city, inviting foreign talents (including sportmen), tourists, students,a hub for many businesses, and a host of others. What happen? In the age of globalisation, internet, instant communication, when our window is opened widely, it would naturally invite all the flies to come in.
