In the election before the last, I voted for the PAP because I was young and afraid. At some point after that, I decided it was pointless being afraid, and that come enxt election, I would vote for whoever I damned well please.
As it turns out, I voted for the PAP the next election as well because I didn't even get to vote, so I endorse them by default.But I wonder how many people again voted for them out of fear? Exactly the way they like it.
Is it not a matter of concern that a government that gets barely 60% of the popular vote has like 100% control of every single organ of government?
Do away with the pretence of political freedoms in this country please.
Oh wait, we can't do that, this is the country of the great 'Wayang' (puppet show). Everything is micromanaged to the extent of unreality, whether it is property
prices or being caring towards our neigbouring countries.
As George Orwell wrote in 1984, the loudspeaker blared that so many thousands pairs of boots had been produced in Oceania for that month, when the reality was that figure was a complete fabrication, and the reality was that probably no one knew how many pairs of boots had been produced, much less cared. That's an extreme, but the picture is there.
This population of this country by and large has accepted doublethink and self deception as normal. Reality control is the name of the game here.

And you are perfectly happy with being at the mercy of such a situation?
