ARTICLEBETTER TO BE FEARED THAN LOVE, SAYS
 
FORMER SINGAPORE LEADER 
 Former 
Singapore Prime Minister Lee Kwan
Yew
believes that it is better for a
leader
to befeared than love. “If nonody is afraid of me, I am meaningless,” said the

Singapor
e
from
1959
to
1990.
The former Singaporean
leader 
 
also believes that it is not necessary to tell everything to the
people
at all time. “My
 job
is to persuade my
people
to the right
way
. And sometimes, it may be necessary not totell them all the
facts
 
 because it will scare them.”
Lee
 
says also that he has “never been concerned or obsessed with
opinion polls
or 
popularity poll
.”
He believes that a
leader 
who is concerned with his popularity is a weak 
leader.Lee
 
is credited with developing
Singapore
from a mere British trading
outpost
into one of theworld’s richest
countries
.

lawyer
who studied in
Britain
 .
After thirty
years
of

Lee
is
a
senior minister
in theSingaporean
government.
