Интересный текст о том, почему на западе не любят Сингапур, и немного о Китае и России в связи с этим. (на английском)


"The real sin: Singapore and China are examples of countries which are taking a different route to development, and look to be succeeding."

"As Madam Yeong Yoon Ying, press secretary to Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew, said last month: 'Singapore is an example to other countries of how the free market plus the rule of law, and stable macro-economic policies, can lead to progress and success, but without Western-style 'liberal' democracy.'"

When Americans asked me, 'Why is your English so good?', often it was not out of admiration but bewilderment. Their next question revealed all: 'Why then do you (i.e. your Government) ban chewing gum?'

    Кажется, кому-то не доехали лодочки.
