Never can the history of mankind deserve such a great man like Mr Lee Kuan Yew.
I challenge every country and countryman to pray for such a man in their own nation to lead their nation & government.This is the only statesman who gave his all, his total adult being to the formation, continuation and aspiration of his people to stand tall in the world, even amongst 1st world nations.
Today, Singapore’s per capita GDP stands at $60,000 being the highest in the world despite a tiny nation with no natural resources nor agricultural resources nor natural tourist attractions.
What’s more, never have I seen a man who has no whatsoever desire to lead for the purposes of fame and reputation nor financial gains nor glamorised power. If he wanted any of these 3 glories, he need not be the PM but stayed as a lawyer who will definitely succeeded sky high due to his high intelligence (with double degrees stars) plus his late wife’s high calibre and acumen in the arena of law.
Mr Lee never craved for glory as he has never insisted buildings, monuments, roads, statues nor busts to be named after him. Even at this golden age at 88, Mr Lee still cares for his people and his nation. How many statesmen after stepping down from their regency post still care for their people or nation like how Mr Lee does?
Many, would have garnered enough wealth and reputation for the sake of networking into crony-linked businesses for their own personal gains and abandoned completely on their once nation-building objectives.
Mr Lee is not a God nor a deity whom I worshipped, however he has his fair of flaws and pitfalls as a mere human being BUT his character, his integrity, his leadership, his thinking capacity, his foresight is far far more immortal than most mortals.
He has many fans all over the 4 corners of planet earth from the business, academics and political circles who crave, dying to hear his wisdom and impartation of how he ticks.
The critics have much to talk badmouth him, but can all these critics put together hold a candle to this one man, Mr Lee Kuan Yew.
I salute and applaud Mr Lee Kuan Yew even though I am a Malaysian.
