Chee Soon Juan: Tearing down the facade

02Jul08

Chee Soon Juan posts an interesting essay of sorts on the Singapore Democrats site:

Tearing down the facade

His words are explained, researched and re-explained, every jab of the finger or the bringing down of his fist for effect is broadcast, accolades are reported in greater detail than a doctoral dissertation, and every smile is published in vivid colour.

This is the Lee Kuan Yew that Singaporeans have come to know. Confident. Unerring. Sharp. Superhuman.

But this is not the Lee Kuan Yew I saw.
