in comment, "Chee Soon Juan: We must believe"



Always listen to what's said, and what's consistently not said. Whilst in the UK people appreciate issues regarding 'the standard of living' along with how male chauvinism, class, racism, disability, age, amongst others, have to be considered so that people are not trained to feel and think that everything's ok when the 'majority' are well-fed, that is not the case here.

I have to wonder what's absent from Chee's 'beliefs'. Perhaps we ought to import some 'FTs' from the United Kingdom to replace Chee and other's of his ilk in Singapore.

The populist style politics of the 'opposition' in singapore leaves much to be desired. What populism amounts to is simply an effort to pander to the privileged of the past in pursuit of the perpetuation of said privilege.

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…
