Are well-educated Singaporeans goondus?

From a foreigner’s point of view, Singaporeans must be dumbasses.

Despite having a ‘good’ education, most do not even bother to think about issues which affect us from cradle to grave.

Singaporeans are so overwhelmed by fear and propaganda that their minds have frozen for decades. Even after witnessing the mess created by PAP, the majority have continued to support PAP to create an even bigger mess.

PAP has failed Singaporeans, an obvious fact if only the majority starts to think, even a little.

1. A country which is run on propaganda is doomed to fail and PAP has been disseminating propaganda for decades.

Propaganda masks PAP’s mistakes and wrongdoings. It deludes the people into thinking there is progress when, in fact, the opposite holds true. Many countries are overtaking our little red dot but the majority still mistakenly believe we are in good hands. By the time Singaporeans wake up from propaganda, we will be wondering what hit us.

We have reached a stage where even PAP ministers delude themselves that all is well and continue to live in past glory. If they don’t even recognize a problem exists, how are they to resolve it?

A very good example is Minister Khaw who has anyhow proclaimed our MRT reliability has improved 3 times despite increasingly frequent breakdowns.

What about PM Lee exonerating I-know-you-know-who from allegations of power abuse in you-know-whose Parliament?

If only the PAP had listened to former high-flyer civil servant Ngiam Tong Dow who sounded this warning 14 years ago:

Any Singaporean of average intelligence should have known the outcome of running a country on propaganda. Shockingly, not well-educated Singaporeans.

2. Every government is bound to make mistakes: transparency is therefore critical. But the PAP has ignored this and continues to conceal its mistakes in order to win more votes.

The danger lies in mistakes not having been discovered earlier when rectification was possible. After 5 decades, nobody really knows how rotten the system is and it may be so bad that we may experience an overnight collapse.

For example, in the management of billions in CPF, there were serious errors of judgement which had led to PAP’s willingness to punt S$25 billion in 2 banks shortly after global stock markets went into a tailspin. Who made such a foolish decision to gamble with our CPF and reserves?

To put this humongous amount of money into context, net CPF contributions (excluding interest paid by GIC) totaled S$24.4 billion ….. from 1998 to 2007!

GIC was also managing land sales revenue which at the point it made the $25 billion punt would have taken at least 5 years to accumulate. Questions: Was GIC desperately trying to recover massive losses?

Without transparency, PAP can claim anything it wants. For example, months after GIC had made the above mistake, Tony Tan said: “GIC had entered the market turmoil well prepared after it had taken a more conservative stance in its investment portfolio by selling stocks in the third quarter and holding more cash.”

Tony was effectively trumpeting to Singaporeans that GIC had sold billions of dollars worth of stocks near the height of the stock market bubble.

Are well-educated Singaporeans all goondus to believe the current President, someone who supported the opaque management of GIC?

PAP has been concealing material information from Singaporeans not since yesterday but 5 decades ago. Why does any government need to conceal information which should be in the public domain? Even any Ah Kow or Ahmad knows the answer but not well-educated Singaporeans?

3. An organization which does not address the issue of accountability is guaranteed to fail. Likewise for a government.

For example, PAP has been throwing billions in tax dollars to improve our low-TFR but today, it is lower than 3 decades ago.

Because no one was held accountable, the government keeps increasing the foreigner population and has created all sorts of societal and employment issues. And it has continued with the same red carpet for foreigners policy.

Likewise for the useless former paper generals who are recycled within government-linked organisations/companies instead of given the boot after epic blunders, eg losing entire multi-billion dollar investments such as NOL, Micropolis, Chartered Semiconductor, etc.

Over 5 decades, PAP’s incompetence is all too obvious and has piled up higher than the eyes can see. It is only a matter of time before the PAP house of cards collapses, burying most of us.

There are predictable issues which will result from PAP running Singapore on propaganda, without transparency and zero accountability. Voting for PAP to screw ourselves isn’t the smartest thing to do, especially for well-educated Singaporeans.

    Dear Phillip Ang,
    Stop frightening the readers with fake news.

    You too are using fear factors to frighten voters to vote for opposition.

    But you will not succeed because the most you get is 300 daft supporters in the centre field of Hong Lim Park.

    AN ECONOMY BUILT ON THE BUBBLE of asset inflation (read enhancement for political correctness) is bound to implode and disintegrate into pieces.

    It is happening now. Top end of the luxury property market has collapsed, the rest of artificial beauties is just expensive liabilities with a mirage of value. When the economy burst in the next GFC, a lot of property speculators will be left holding underwater mortgage (read dead babies) waiting to be thrown out because in retrenched unemployment, these gambling chips are no longer viable to hold a day longer.

    I am waiting a slow motion movie of disaster unraveling now because PAPpy have confessed the economy maxed out, restructuring failed and they are clueless of the way forward out of this trapped quagmire and quicksand.

    Tharman told the nation their failed population recycling economics is BOTH POLITICALLY AND ECONOMICALLY STUPID.

    I AGREE WITH HIM ABSOLUTELY – the educated Sinkie goondus deserve what they got – complacency and complicity with PAPpy utter incompetence and dumb economic management .

  • Academic is Not Real world:

    If academic result is real world performance, then most of the world’s Greatest achievers would not have made it because they are all not scholars.

    If scholars make the best leaders Imperial China scholar system would not have led to the collapse of imperialism.

    A scholar is a book worm, that’s all.

    By getting scholars as leaders you are actually almost like guaranteeing you have not gotten the Best to do the job of a leader.

    (1) Essentially, two categories of Singaporeans:
    > (30%) “Smart S’poreans” — those who can “see through” the numerous PAP cunningly-clever political ploys [ ‘wayang’ in Malay; ‘chor hee’ in Hokkien ]
    > (70%) “Silly Singkies” — those who have been (unfortunately) “brain-washed” or made “brain-dead” by the well-oiled PAP Propaganda Machine [aka ‘The Shitty SHIT TIMES’]

    (2) ALL IS NOT LOST! Why?
    “…The PAP Govt may fool SOME People SOME of the time, but definitely not ALL The People ALL The Time…”

    So does anyone have a solution for this?

    It seems that voting PAP out is impossible given both the kiaseeness of voters and the new voters. The best thing we can get is PAP’s vote share dropping but not enough for them to have less than half the seats in parliament.

    I doubt a collapse will wake the dafts up. In fact it may prompt even more to vote for PAP since it’s the only party they have ever known. The mind sometimes thinks irrationally you know.

    Singaporeans are zero IQ when comes to economics and politics. By not having wise citizens, the gov can control them all easily, being lazy, collecting free money by doing nothing/having mediocre standard but yet easy life, without the need of accountability and working hard.

    Since regardless how much you do for them or what. They will still voting for you and do not dare to speak up your wrongdoings. Which country can be a bad gov and having easy life other than SG? As long bad times/things have not fall onto them, they will just be selfish, act blur and do not care.

    Singaporeans are goondus no doubt ( quite similar to CHC devoted sheep or blind devotion of their govt leaders despite damning publicity or exposure). But then, they are not that goondus to support other faiths or political religion.

    Can you see what’s wrong there?

    Not being part of other’s faiths do not mean you are on the right track!!

    They are goondus because they take pride in being “CHC members”.

    They are goondus too for criticising or ridiculing CHC members when they are in themselves in another political cult religion.

    @ Python 5

    MATE, THESE ARE THE LOW END OF THE CONDO MARKET priced to capture the dumbest of the dumb – the last fools in the bull rush. It is like stock market – when hawkers and lift attendants in the old days rushed to buy stocks, the smart money have all deserted or sold out.

    As when the next GFC crash visits upon all, we will see desperate sales BEFORE TOP among gamblers. Those aiming to upgrade from nearby 5-roomers won’t be able to sell at the price they think they can fetch to pay part of the condo mortgage.

    These fools forget that property buying STARTS FROM THE LIABILITIES SIDE OF THE LEDGER – i.e. that the mortgage is much bigger than the initial deposit and if the economy/job don’t sustain, the mortgage liabilities remains but the deposit vaporize to nothing.

    YES, I AM WATCHING A SLOW-MOTION CRASH OF PROPERTY MARKET IN SINKIELAND. D. Trump can’t get a single policy platform working after 6 months in office. Janet Yellen is leaving next Feb (Trump don’t want her), the Fed is a ghostly institution as economy under Trump wobbles. Forget North Korea, the interest rate hike forward and shrinking of Fed balance sheet is going to bring on a global recession.

    AH BENG AND AH SOH buying condo at YCK/Hougange Ave 9 is CLUELESS of global economy.
