Rights group – Freedom House which categorizes nation from 1, very free to 7, not free at all rated Singapore as ‘partly free’. Around 5 or 6, I think. I guess, it means that Singaporeans are preoccupied most of the time. No wonder most of my friends never answer my calls, and now also very hard to make new friend. They are all very busy, partly free only.
Snip from Bloomberg,
“Thirty-four percent of the world’s population lives in “not free” countries, which include China, Myanmar, formerly known as Burma, Zimbabwe and Vietnam. Twenty percent lives in “partly free’ nations such as Ecuador, Colombia, Malaysia and Singapore, while 46 percent are “free,” including Taiwan, Indonesia, Ukraine and Brazil.”
