Singapore is far better at allowing personal freeedoms.
That's gotta be your version of sarcasm....or a joke, right?!teck21 wrote:But Singaporeans are creative.
The government leads the way in culturing creativity, the very independent and anti-establishment media here takes the cue, and starts inculcating creativity in the local populace.
The hiterto uncreative people known as Singaporeans gradually learn to be creative, and after a few years can claim to have become genuinely creative.
Of course none of this happened without first having gone thrugh about one million rounds of consultation, white papers and reports to ensure that the success in creating creative Singaporeans.
Quite possibly in that time, some creative person somewhere decided that school was boring and decided to do something silly like creating angry animal games for fun and then see where it goes.
Admittedly, these same other countries are far more forgiving of unfinished schooling in terms of future income-earning ability.
Actually, the Singapore I saw 12 years plus ago, was more straight laced, but the people were more scared of littering, getting into fights, or vocally telling FT to get lost etc. etc.. .. oh, don't forget that bars had to shutter down by 12 midnight, and discotheques, latest, 3 AM on weekends .. and all becomes quitenakatago wrote:Woz has a point but he'll also got the locals up in arms.
That's cause you are local right? I agree that there are ups and downs to both "sides" of the fence in this respect though.local lad wrote:I was reading that report with interest and I find it amusing to know that Woz was implying he supported bad behavior.

Singapore might be sterile and boring to a certain extent but if chaos and expressive actions run rampant for the sake of individual freedom , then, I would rather choose the former.
Well I personally think the pendulum doesn't have to be swung from one extreme to another. Why can't we have a little of the best of both worlds?local lad wrote:Singapore might be sterile and boring to a certain extent but if chaos and expressive actions run rampant for the sake of individual freedom , then, I would rather choose the former.
