What kind of ‘Pioneer Generation’ do we want to emulate?

Was just watching Ch 8 news when a woman interviewed at some Pioneer Generation food fair, went something like: “We are really grateful of them (the ‘Pioneer generation’. We really should learn a lot from them.”

So my question is, learn what? Learn from whom? Do they really know what they are talking about, when they blabber out such stuff?

Are they referring to ‘pioneers’ like Lee Kuan Yew who ruthlessly removed all opponents and created a repressive nanny state?

Or people like Lim Chin Siong who fought all the way but lost to a tyrant.

Who and what are they talking about?
