But I’ve lived and worked in SE Asia for years. They are corrupt and the Govt’s[Esp. Singapore] is by in large a police state with limited freedoms.

Please explain how these "limited freedoms" affected your life in Singapore.

I could not speak out against the Gov’t of Singapore, I had no freedom of speech, no more than 3 people could form a group[secret society], there was no place[except for one, only with a permit] where I could hear opposing views of the Gov’t, etc. Those are a few.

Spit in public on the grass, on the sidewalk, on a building and see what happens.
Chew gum in public and see what happens.

Yeh, you can walk down the sidewalk in the civilized portions of the city and not have to worry too much about being mugged but don't go outside certain areas or you may be toast, literally.
