Re: MP Sim Ann's GrandFather Was Executed By The PRC For Treason Against The State
Double-agents or "traitors" demands a lot of skill, especially during troubled times where regimes come and go. Play it right, you will rise to the very top and be worshiped like a god. Play it wrong, you will end up disgraced forever and probably executed.
What's so good about being a hero? You want to be like Yue Fei, Lim Bo Seng, Lt. Adnan? They threw their lives away frivolously and nobody knows what happened to their descendants. Exception was Yue Fei, whose son was executed together with him.
On the other hand, we have skillful politicians like Ah Gong who survived the Brits, the Japs, the Brits again and defeated the Communists/Marxists in Singapore, and went on to be Singapore's greatest figure and key Founding Father.
Do something meaningful. Join the grassroots. Peoples' Association all the way!
