Catherine Lim is a very gutsy lady. She has just penned in the change of times. Her open letter to the #Singapore prime minister, BG Lee Hsien Loong could be found here
I have been tied to my own problems pretty badly at home to be really far behind in what is happening now. But fortunately the internet is able to help me record and do the catch up later, though quite late, thinking of the problems and solutions we have here. Just this year alone, we have quite a bit of happenings from the ground. I doubt it will stop from all these telling signs. If they aren’t acknowledged positively, I can see a storm arising. Lessons? Trust is loosing ground. Solution? Should we retain the hard handed style? My answer is NO. I have also attended the Buddhist convention last month end which Venerable Jing Kong had come to visit Singapore for an hour. The teachings of love and peace came in at the right time. But one needs to truly listen and put it to practice. Shaking hands with the venerable is only the start, the actions are more important. Trust comes in the form of sincerity. The harder the hammer hits, the larger the cracks will be. – Karen Fu.

Quick post from my facebook comment. History tells us that the strongest and the most impartial dynasties last. It may take the meanest to stay, but it doesn’t last. The most partial and selfish dynasties die from revolution set by the people. The most unfair businesses fail flat and are never liked. People’s support is the basis of power. Try double standards, and even the Mandate of Heaven will have you out without the people’s revolt. Historical references are aplenty. The will power of goodness can never be underestimated. Why do you think people have so much aspirations when it comes to unconditional passion of all kinds? Because people believe in peace and common love for mankind.
I can only post this much for now. It is something that great people like Dr Sun Yat Sen, Mahatma Gandhi, Mother Theresa and our own humble Teresa Hsu would pay strong belief in — Human fairness, compassion, and love. Very simple principles, but seemingly to some people, it can be so difficult to do. – Karen Fu

People work for money. Nothing wrong with that. But when it comes with the idea of exploiting everything to ones selfish and egotistical power goals, then there’s a problem. People can be swayed for the sake of money and power and do things pit against their conscience. But when it comes to rewards and punishments, it becomes clear that we human being cannot match our allah, our Lord, and our Faith and laws of nature in terms of the ultimate power and might. – Karen Fu
