ST Article 20 Oct 2009:
MM Lee: Social Divide Inevitable
When there is a will there is a way.
It is inevitable that as a country becomes more developed and educated, its population will want greater freedom of speech and expression, more political choices, checks and balance against concentration of power, personal liberties, etc etc.
What are the ways? GRC. ISA. Films Act. Media control. Lawsuits.
It is inevitable that people would want to go for higher paying jobs. What are the ways? Peg ministerial salaries to highest earners in the country.
Ingenuity abounds. When there is a will there is a way. Is there a will?
