    I don't remember LKY ever sanction killing, outside the justice system... or having 'Death Squad' to get rid of those he disapprove of...

    Exactly my throughts. This 'witch hunt' without proper trial can easily go out of control when people use it to get rid of other unwanted persons. Obviously all it needs is a pack of white powder and some trigger happy boys with arms...
    This is not democracy but a re-establishing of a dictatorship. Even worse that this copy here is sold as 'democracy'.

    LKY's greatest achievement is achieving "rule of law" in Singapore. Somehow the western media just don't seem to get it even after 51 years. I sincerely hope that Duterte will be Philippines' LKY and lift that country out of the mess it is in now but somehow, I don't think extra-judicial killings will be helpful. This is just like how Benigno Aquino was taken care by Marcos' cronies.

    LKY and SG in general are one of a kind.

    The Philippines under Duerte will never resemble SG under LKY. Never ever in a million years. Phiippines doesn't have the taste quite like Singapore or geography...no need to say anything about anyone in charge there. Ambition is a weird deal on many levels.

    Shame because they are good folks.

    Hey bros I believe in nationalism to a certain limit...same with internationalism but with a much stricter sense bordering on it's not good for the world in most cases. I might be a dinosaur but I have my reasons.

    Compare with stories and reports how the NSDAP and the police handled communists, unionist, Jews and other 'unwanted' people in the 1930s, already much earlier than Hitler's win in the elections in 1933. (After that it went into full force.)
    History repeating will be a painful and bloody lesson.

    LKY never support the idea of vigilante.

    If SG have an ideology, it is LKY version of legalism,
    which is an unique mix of ancient China legalism plus British common laws.

    For over 200 years the people of China experienced war as their daily reality
    and a legalistic approach to trying to control people's worst impulses -
    controlling people through the threat of severe punishment for doing wrong - harsh laws
    would have seemed like the best way to deal with the chaos.
    Shang Yang's legalism dealt with everyday situations
    which allowed the state of Qin to defeat the other warring states to control China.
    Legalism can make a country strong but its flaws are the harsh laws,
    which cause the Qin dynasty to collapse after unify China for a short period.

    The British common laws are more humane so it is an ideal partner for legalism. LKY have make use of the laws to remove the corrupted elements in society that makes a country weak.

    Duterte is trying to use vigilante to remove the lawless, which will eventually undermine his authority and his government. This is because he doesn't want to work within the laws.
    Eventually, it will lead to chaos and more lawlessness because he cannot control the situation.

    Thank you bro. I see.

    Interesting. Similar to the cycles of discipline visited upon the nation of Israel before the church age in the Christian sphere of the world and somewhat like what is happening to the USA now imo.

    3 Kingdoms time supposedly second only to WW2 in bloody conflict. There is so much I have not learned. Wow.

    Thanks again bros.

    The Philippines have now become the Cuba of Asia. Soon either the Japanese or Chinese will own them.

    So does Kim Jong-un.. and Mao....

    And look what Hilter did with the 'Strong Support Fron His Countrymen'...

    It would be strange to think that once they start taking China's or Russian money.... they won't need to bow down to their new 'Overlord'...

    P.S... I really really do hope that I'll be forced to 'Eat Humble Pie' and Philippines President Duterte could deliver on his 'promise' to rid Philippines of drugs/crime/corruption/etc... for the sake of my wife's family... I really do.

    What I totally disagree is all those extrajudicial killing and his need to burn bridges with old allies.. does he really think he can curry favour to China/Russia ??
