在互联网看到 1956 年李光耀在立法院对“镇压”作的有关辩论。翻译如下：
李光耀 1956/10/04 立法院辩论
Repression, Sir, is a habit that grows. I am told it is like making
love - it is always easier the second time! The first time there may be pangs of conscience, a sense of guilt. But once embarked on this course with constant repetition you get more and more brazen in the attack. All you have to do is to dissolve organizations and societies and banish or detain the key political workers in these societies. Then miraculously everything is tranquil on the surface.
Then an intimidated press and the government-controlled radio together can regularly sing your praises, and slowly and steadily the people are made to forget the evil things that have already been done, or if these things are referrred to again they're conveniently distorted and distorted with impunity, because there will no opposition to contradict."
Lee Kuan Yew
Legislative Assembly Debate
Oct 4, 1956
