in comment : What 'Singaporeans' are you talking about TR?

Temasek Review: Indian new citizen/PR told Singapore NSman complaining about foreigners to make himself more “marketable”

"How can Sinha expect Singaporeans to make themselves more “marketable” when they have to compete directly with foreign workers who cost a fraction of them?"


What 'singaporeans' are you people talking about? The 'mandarin-speakers preferred' singaporeans? The 'must maintain a racial balance in favour of the chinese' singaporeans?

This in turn encourages a ‘go with your feel’ tendency, which in itself gives rise a myriad of tendencies that go unquestioned.  Right and wrong ceases to matter, and even if something is illegal, one can still view it as society just having its own bias against it, just as it once had a ‘bias’ against homosexuality.

‘Nothing is natural.  Everything is just a matter of preference.’  That is the basic thrust of this unfortunate situation.  In fact, having a preference is in itself seen as evidence of one’s intelligence.  No attention needs to be paid to intellectuals, thinkers, philosophers, sages, religious te…
