Half of Yale-NUS liberal arts college could be foreign students

I'm a political science major and I find it tiring Asia has to constantly match up to Western standards of rights almost every time east and west cross paths. The thing is, you guys forget that it took centuries of revolutions and evolution of the Western political system to get to where it is today with all it's liberty. Asia, in contrast, was dragged into the current world system through imperialist occupation and thus entered this phase relatively late. As all advanced Asian democracies with better human rights records like South Korea, Taiwan and Japan have shown, democratisation and opening up with the civil and political sphere took time but it is inevitable. Stop pushing Singapore to get there so quickly - we'll get there for sure, but in our own time. This NUS-Yale tie up is one step in that direction.
