This is Teo Soh Lung’s story of her experience in prison. It reminds me of how human beings can disrespect other human beings just because they are perceived as opponents. This is contrary to the high ideals of Asian philosophy – Confucianism, a philosophy that has been promoted in Singapore. One wonders whether her interrogators have a moral conscience over what they did to her. Whether they have a sense of morality. Whether, while dehumanising Soh Lung and her friends, they dehumanise themselves too. If they do not regret what they do, one can ask if they are human beings at all.
