Perhaps I should have never mentioned that affirmative action quotas got in the way of my finding employment in my first love - teaching. People not living in the US would not know what I meant.
But the bottom line is that there are many things that I like about the Singaporean way.
> No affirmative action quotas
> Strict and swift punishment for pushing hard drugs - vice a push to make drug usage legal.
> government pays tuition for medical school, and you agree to work in a government hospital for several years, vice students going heavily into debt, and then many people defaulting on student loans.
>guest worker passes. No such thing as illegal immigrants. You guys don't have a welfare problem.

A similar thing happened in the British police force over a period of several years, maybe a decade.

After the MacPherson report into the murder of Stephen Lawrence concluded that the police were 'instututionally racist' and their make-up did not reflect that of the communities that they served, you could not get into Police College/training unless you were from an ethnic minority.
