Jackie Chan and freedom of speech

Jackie Chan is right.

I too believe in freedom of speech. But when you spend more time fighting and quarrelling than working productively, nothing gets done. That’s the reason why Singapore has overtaken Hong Kong as an economy. Imagine hiring an employee who spends nine hours in office debating pros and cons of everything and never gets down to doing it. Beyond a certain point, you got to take that decision and move.

The bad news is many Singaporeans completely blind to developments in Hong Kong, Europe and US are headed that way. I worry for us. Like Hong Kong, we may become ungovernable soon.

Jackie Chan is right.
