论老子

道,领导也。领导必需要不断呼唤,教导下属以及以身作则。下属的过和错皆因领导懒惰。

古之善为道者,非以明民,将以愚之。民之难治,以其智多。故以智治国,国之贼。不以智治国,国之福。[1]

The word [古之] means in the past.

The word [] means good at.

The word [] means leadership (This the theme[2] of DaoDeJing or《老子》)

The phrase [明民] means enlighten the people.

The phrase [愚之] means to fool or mislead them

Let’s understand the true meaning of the word dao () and not blindly guess what dao is.

1.     If we were to break up the Chinese character , it is made up from a combination of two words, “”and“”;

2.     ”looks like the shape of a ship;

3.     ”means a leader;

4.     The first role of a leader is to call upon everyone to board his ship to sail to a promised land;

5.     The second role of a leader is to constantly teach and guide his followers how to reach the promised land;

6.     ”means to walk;

7.     means a leader calls upon everyone to be his followers and walk along the same path together with him for all to reach the promised land or common goal.

What are the three fundamental duties of a leader?

First primary duty: A leader must continuously rally his followers.

Second primary duty: A leader must continuously teach and guide his followers.

Third primary duty: A leader must lead by example.

The full translation for the statement古之善为道者,非以明民,将以愚之is: In the past, he who commands great leadership does not enlighten the people but continuously fool them.

Please let me emphasize.

1)      The past two comments already made it out very clearly what is best for Singaporeans. 1) Throw out the bastard Westminster Political System. However, both WP and PAP are not going to say anything about this issue. They prefer to fool the people to get on with the Hougang by-election. 2) Remove the Prime Minister office. Yet, both WP and PAP still want to battle each other out to see who can place more of his own men in Parliament and thus, become the appointed PM by who leads the most men in Parliament.

 The full translation for the statement民之难治,以其智多is: Often it is difficult to rule the people because they are very knowledgeable.

 May I ask, “Why must the leader rule the people with a tight fist in the first place? The leaders must understand what is wuwei (无为) is. It means “Not to do whatever as one wishes” or无为所欲为 or in the modern Chinese language 不要为所欲为 as I have illustrated this concept with the following example.

“Most of the time a leader has to maintain his calm and keep to wuwei. When there is a call of duty to take action, then he must take action. However, if he takes action merely for self-interests, then the action is not right or ethically or morally wrong. “

This leads us to the next translation.

  The full translation for the statement故以智治国,国之贼is: This is why those who uses clever but scheming methods to rule the country, he is the enemy of the country.

 The word can be translated as clever scheme or scheming methods. Why? It is some kind of knowledge that only the smart, cunning and clever people will think of and most ordinary people will not suspect the true intent or hidden agenda of their cunning scheme.

 Let’s recall. The “Stop at two” campaign was extremely successful when LKY applied threat to the lost of choice of schooling for the third child and above. Today, we are inviting half a million foreigners to be naturalized citizens.  We have imported 1.5 million foreign workers under the dubious name, Foreign Talent who are road sweepers or cleaners and many other menial works.

 The “Great HDB Flat Upgrading” program has boosted up the price of HDB flats by more than 3 times over 8 years (from 1990 to 1998). HDB Flat upgraders had locked themselves to another 30 years housing loan to pay. Most youngsters are crying foul over the extremely high HDB flat prices.

 The “CPF Housing Grant” scheme was sold as "Singapore government is the only Santa Claus that dished out $40,000 grants to young couples". Do you realized that if this amount of money was not dished out, most young couple could not afford to save the down-payment of $40,000 and the HDB flat prices will crash by half due to poor demand?

 The Medisave scheme was to ensure the people have money in the CPF Medisave to pay for medical fees should a need arises. However, behind this scheme is a devious scheme to up the medical fees in all government hospitals and poly-clinics. Simple consultation with a GP had now more than doubled if not tripled.

 The Medishield and Medifund  schemes are mere patch-up programs to sustain the over-priced medical fees charged by the government hospitals.  Please recall. The surgical and drugs fees charged by the government hospitals had gone up more than triple.

 The Wage Supplement Scheme was said sold by PM Lee Hsien Loong that it is better than the Minimum wage Scheme. Bullshit! Do your computations and you will find out the answer how you were conned by such beautiful words?     

 Summing up, the scheming methods so beautifully named as “Stop-at-two”, Grade HB Flat Upgrading program, CPF Housing Grant, Foreign Talent, Medisave, MEdiShield, Medifund, Wage Supplement Scheme and many more clever but devious schemes to raid the people’s pocket. Yet, we have continuously voted for “the enemy of our country” to be in power for 50 years. Idiot! Aren’t we?

 The full translation for the statement不以智治国,国之福 is “Not implementing scheme(s) that hide the truth from the people is the best blessing for the people.”

 When can the Singapore government stop coining new phrases to ruin the people’s life with many more hideous schemes?

 This day won’t come until the one who is given the responsibility to form the government is elected by universal suffrage. The PM office is by appointment and not by universal suffrage.  The PM office must be removed.

 What are WP and PAP doing now?  Continue to coax you into giving your votes to their party. Do they ever think what is best for you? If you think they do, please ask both WP and PAP how they are going to arrest the problem of Singaporeans being raided by its own government for more than 50 years by clever scheme after scheme.

Please watch this video which I took in Sep 22, 2011.

Is the Elected President S$4.2 million annual salary a back-breaking job? (Cut by half after Dr Tony Tan won by  a slim margin of 35.02% of the votes during the Aug 27, 2011 EP election)

What is shown in this video truly is.

Can the EP absolve his duty to table in Parliament why a 70+ lady has to carry out such back-breaking job and not retire in dignity?

You can see many of these poor, old folks working in eateries, island-wide.

This is the common answer that best explains why the poor lady has to continue working at this ripe old age.

"Mama, I have a 30-year HDB housing mortgage loan to pay. It eats up half my monthly salary. I have a car installment to pay because the COE is S$70,000 and being a salesman I must own a car. I have to pay at least $200 for girl-girl PAP kinder-garden tuition fee. Car parking fees, ERP, and all kinds of fees. I couldn't afford to give you any pocket money at all. in fact, I still need you to earn some money to lighten my household budget."

[2] The theme of DaoDeJing is very clear. Dao means leadership. DaoDeJing writes about true leadership. This theme rhymes throughout this book in its entirety. Please refer to http://ericwoonct.blog.163.com under section 《领导之道》.
