Exodus stories everywhere

David Brooks reminded his readers that America is an Exodus story. But so is Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, India etc., the list is very long. All of them become independent from the refrain, "let my people go!" All happened after the end of the World War II and unacknowledged were following the American template as the US became the global superpower.

From time to time we have to revisit our beginnings and grasp why did we choose to become an independent nation. It is because we want to be free to carve our own destiny. In Singapore's case we must always show that being independent is better than being part of a larger nation,which in our case would God forbid be part of either Malaysia or Indonesia.
