Unity is Strength

I will like to first thank Lynda Ethan for providing valuable feedback.

She said: “I feel all the points the Oppo raised are good but impact not there… so a joint Election Campaign as to why Oppo is fighting for a seat is to save the country from further deterioration… which is true and has a deeper impact. I think the electorate dun really care/know too much bout politics n Oppo party policies/ideology…”

I thought it would be a good opportunity to share my reply in a fresh post here:

Thanks for your feedback, Lynda. You have absolutely nailed the point. I totally agree with you that the general populace is disinterested in politics. Nonetheless, politicians from other countries whom I have come across also share similar woes – political apathy is widespread internationally.

Except that, in our case, the situation seems far worse because the PAP cleverly ensures that the school textbooks & mainstream media only trumpet its own rhetoric. Hence, for over decades, a “laissez-faire” people is developed & conditioned to entrust the running of our country to the PAP.

When alternative & important information from the Opposition cannot get out to the citizens through the mainstream media (let’s not kid ourselves; social media still cannot match the broadcast & print media in terms of reach), voters naturally cannot make an informed choice. When they cannot do so, they will go for the brand which they have heard, seen or read about the most.

Thus, if they do not have much information on the Opposition to begin with, how else do we expect them to even try to learn about our alternative polices which will be able to improve their lives?

This is the challenge we have faced for the past 4 decades but we have not given up on any possible means to reach out to the people- walkabouts, house visits, pre-election & election rallies, public forums, social media, newsletter, books, word-of-mouth, telecommunications etc…

It is tough but we just have to keep on trying & do our best to educate & inform the public. Each & everyone of you can chip in too by sharing our posts. We will like to cover every nook & cranny & leave no stones unturned.

As for having a joint election campaign, the Singapore Democratic Party (SDP) has already indicated our willingness to cooperate with other Opposition parties on several occasions & platforms. It is not going to be easy but no doors have ever been closed.

As the saying goes,” Unity is strength.”

  • Great Asia:

    Singaporeans are not disinterested in politics, they don’t take the shallow bananas seriously.

    ALL the western democracies are failing. Yet, bananas are still asking Singaporeans to chase after the failed system and ideology.

    The real problem is that the Bananas are recently created race, they don’t have history, culture and wisdom; therefore, they can only chase after the trendy ideology.

    Ha ha ha!

  • Actually:

    Singaporean Chinese rather be “banana” than China-Chinese or China-nese

    The choice is clear.
