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.

Also, the newspapers were Gov’t controlled.

I go to Singapore often. I see groups of people everywhere. I worked with those people there and here in the USA. They have never complained about their country. They are capitalist and Singapore has some of the lowest personal and corporate taxes in the world.

The only restriction I found was chewing gum.
