[TR] Teo Chee Hean and his nonsense

中国的革命不是请客吃饭,新加坡的政治却是请客喝三合一茶水。事实上,新加坡有两种政治茶水,一种是当权者的茶水,另一种是内政部的茶水,前者是当官的序曲,后者却是当政治囚犯的前奏。 在各路豪杰为逐鹿中原而摩拳擦掌之际,新加坡主流媒体撰文为李光耀政权的三合一政治模式灌水,并且细数两党制的不是之处。所谓的三合一政体是由民选议员,非选区议员和官委议员组成国会。 文章认为:‘这个三合一模式是在反对党长时间无法取得可观突破的情况下设计出来的,目的是要满足选民既要行动党当政府,又要反对党监督政府的心理欲求。’ 这一种说法有特商榷。其一,名不正言不顺。三合一政体的称号是不正确的,因为这个违反民主精神的政体是分裂,而非团结国家社会。正确的学名应该是一分三政体;李光耀的无国论承认新加坡确实是一个四分五裂的社会,还不足于成为一个真正的国家。 其二,新加坡政治实况果真如文章所言?如果非也,那历史真相又是些什么? 三合一政体是当权者YY民主政治的春梦,并非为了人民利益,更不是为了让反对声音进入国会,实实在在的,那只是为了执政党可以长期掌权。说白了,这是维护李光耀极权专制的一种制度设计。 首先,反对党长时间无法取得可观突破的这一个情况是人为的结果,并非是政治竞争的必然结果。到了今时今日,这一个说法已经没有太大的争议性,坊间看到的好些文献都有类似的结论,即便是国大本身的出版亦不再忌讳这种说法。 比如,Lysa...
