Amos Yee was ruined from the start. By "activists" who used him to run their own agendas. Also his incredibly stupid mother. This is what you get for emboldening a child, encouraging his bad behaviour. NEVER make a child a messiah like character. It is a recipe for disaster.
It is okay to be against the G's policy. Then do things the right way! Study hard, gain more knowledge and run as opposition party.
The whole running away from home, asylum situation is not a well thought out plan. It is done out of spite. I am shocked that none of these adults who claims to care ever sat him down and ask him, "If you are going to the US, what is it that you wish to achieve?" None.
Nope, they keep egging him on to prove a point about freedom of speech. Until he really believes that he is the god. He thinks that he can get away no matter what happens. "Mommy and friends will defend me!"
There are people who feel that SG culture is not for them. Nothing abnormal. Many of these people planned out their route for the next 10, 20 years. Then they proceed to use their acquired skills to migrate. These people are doing well and happy because they used their brains.
I feel like his real downfall began when he was in US. No parental figure, got away from so many things and being held as a messiah figures by selfish people. A well meaning person will tell him that his way of doing things will not help him achieve his American dream.
Those people who egged him on are incredibly quiet. That is so sad, you used a child and then discard him when he no longer serve you or your agenda. There is special place in hell for all these people.

You know what else I hate, blaming parents for the life that you have now. Yes, bad parenting can affect a child's development. But understand this, you are an adult now, you have the power to make your own choices. Your parents rightfully have no say over you life. (Cont)
Any terrible choices you make, its on you. Unless your parents are cruelly abusive, narcissistic or tried to starve you, you have no excuses. So you end up in a shit situation? The culprit is you. Learn to be accountable and matured. I hate adult babies.
My parents are not equipped with the knowledge of parenting. They made so many mistakes that i lost count. None of them are wise people and make terrible choices.But at the end of the day, they raised me to be a well functioning member of society.
