    Is Singapore gonna be the next banana republic state?

    In a Banana republic where its everyman for himself, u don't need a bomb to kill anyone, just a simple disruption like traffic lights breakdown and these uncivilized barbarians (economic elites in SG who can afford exorbitantly priced COEs), its everyman for himself as each tries to bulldoze his way through, ultimately, they kill themselves in the stampede that soon follows...

    Could self-serving PAP (ivory tower) leadership be leading Singapore towards a state of self-destruction/ civil war?...

    Deploying sock puppets (banana legislators) to speak as trained(whipped) to do: promoting self/ sectarian interest of the elites over that of the public good?: "If the annual salary of the Minister of Information, Communication and Arts is only $500,000, it may pose some problems when he discuss policies with media CEOs who earn millions of dollars because they need not listen to the minister's ideas and proposals. Hence, a reasonable payout will help to maintain a bit of dignity."
    - MP Lim Wee Kiak apologises for comments on pay

    Introducing the GRC system of elections to facilitate sock puppet installation: 'Without some assurance of a good chance of winning at least their first election, many able and successful young Singaporeans may not risk their careers to join politics,' Mr Goh Chok Tong, June 2006 ['GRCs make it easier to find top talent: SM'].

    fixing opposition parties; actually just creating an authoritarian, monolithic political state, with little or no political vibrancy/choice...
    (YouTube; LHL: "fix the opposition")

    Bending election rules and deployment of the AGC to do one's dirty work of forcing more skeletons into the closet?:
    (Pict source)

    Anyhow:
    In a Banana Republic of Singapore, foreigners and the state junta own more of the resources and opportunities than the citizens themselves have access to... The big question is where are we now...


    Banana republic
    In political science, the term banana republic is a pejorative descriptor for a servile dictatorship that abets or supports, for kickbacks, the exploitation of large-scale plantation agriculture, especially banana cultivation.[2] More generally, it is a derogatory term for a country that is considered to have a weak economy, a dishonest or cruel government, and public services that do not work.[11] In economics, a banana republic is a country operated as a commercial enterprise for private profit, effected by a collusion between the State and favored monopolies, in which the profit derived from the private exploitation of public lands is private property, while the debts incurred thereby are a public responsibility. Such an imbalanced economy remains limited by the uneven economic development of town and country, and tends to cause the national currency to become devalued paper-money, rendering the country ineligible for international-development credit.[12]

    "The measure of a man is best defined by his sincerity, not the thickness of his wallet, nor the opulence of wealth" ~ Matthew 25:40: "The King will reply, 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.'"- (NIV)

    SG girls will be maids and SG guys will have to go overseas to be foreign workers.

    The future looks bleak when the PM goes around spouting nonsense and antagonising the world powers

    Only low tolerance sissy types like you get rattled so easily and think this way. We may not do as well as previously but the future is hardly bleak by any means. Get a grip of yourself so you can think more clearly and not post this kind of rubbish.
