In preparation for Lee Kuan Yew’s death anniversary next week (March 23), the Singapore government is publishing the 4th book on the deceased dictator after his death. The first was Lee Kuan Yew and His Ideas written by the government-controlled 153rd-ranking media Straits Times reporters published on March 28, 2015. The Straits Times then publish Lee Kuan Yew: The Final Journey.

The third book is a children book, What’s Inside the Red Box, that features Lee Kuan Yew as the protagonist hero figure for children, published by (again) The Straits Times. This children book has been disseminated to all PAP Foundation kindergartens. The fourth book published just yesterday (March 15) is Up Close With Lee Kuan Yew. The Straits Times claim that the book “shows a personal and intimate side” of the deceased dictator who was in fact actually notorious to be ruthless with his critics.

The Singapore government is going full gear to drive Singaporeans into another mourning week for Lee Kuan Yew, whom the government claimed, “Singapore’s founding father”. However, the level of disinterest and apathy is rampant on the streets. Over 14 million quantity of SG50 Lee Kuan Yew-themed currency notes are untouched in the banks.

It is just barely a year and Lee Kuan Yew is truly remarkable in his own manner after his death. After all, who publishes 4 books after his death?
