I feel very sorry
for you and your society. Societies that need to belt compliance
out of their children need to think again. All these children
will learn from this dreadful experience is that inflicting pain
on another is the answer or solution to a problem.
Singapore is known
world-wide as a controlled society, one where compliance with
group-thought and group-speak. Object and you get brutalized.
I'd rather live in a kind society that encourages individualism
than a cruel and controlling one.
I have the right to
speak my mind in public without fear of government reprisal.
It's called freedom.
