Political cannibalism at work

In a recent interview Mr Milquetoast (current PM) says that we need ” ‘to be able to accept the new way of doing things and to be able to change’” and “‘In our case, if we don’t reinvent ourselves and somebody else comes along and takes the apple off our tree, we won’t have lunch.’”

He is subliminally talking about the Garden of Eden metaphor but with the current elites and Dishonourables we are already in the grip of the Fallen Ones.

Then comes the disturbing part, he actually says:

“‘I think that’s a lesson which… we ourselves, not just the population, need to know and to remind ourselves every morning that we have to keep on being prepared to reinvent ourselves, and sometimes to cannibalise ourselves, because otherwise somebody else will do it.’”

Why should such imagery from cannibalism be used in such a context? This is something associated with dark forces and should not be used lightly by those in public office.

What if one were to say: “I am guided by Divine forces to say the truth that we live in a corrupt society and justice must be the order of the day and we must start with removing those who are harming us from positions of influence.”

Would that be tantamount to going against the so-called secular state, or if it was uttered by a political figure: the same as mixing religion and politics; would such a person at least be open to such accusations?

This is not a point about the term ‘cannibalise’ being used, it’s about how it is used.

Mr Lee goes on to talk about diversity, but we are not open to change given the same old bullying tactics of the ruling class and disgraceful political censorship (Fake News laws) nor being open to different ideas from citizens who challenge the stultified thought of the Hollow ones.

So reinvention of ourselves is a problem: but to say we must cannibalise? Thinking people should ask themselves what this means.

Is it a roundabout way of describing the incestuous nature of politics we have?

Meanwhile, we learn again of the homeless in Singapore: “Incongruent it may be, the reality is that there are virtually hundreds of people sleeping in the rough each night while the rest of the island slumbers on, none-the-wiser about their presence.

… If we have an ecosystem to support the homeless that is not punitive in nature but with dignity, I think we may stand a better chance of eradicating homelessness.

…The onus cannot be solely on the homeless themselves. It falls on all of us, as a society, to own and eradicate homelessness.”

But until we move away from the mindset of cannibalisation it is unlikely that positive intent be put in place for so many who are in hardship.

All is not right.

    Really?

    he is worried about us being cannibalised?

    Yet a few days ago he told the world that Singapore’s legs are wide open to welcome foreign trash.

    Quote :
    About inclusiveness, we are open. You know our rules in Singapore, he says.

    “WHATEVER YOUR SEXUALITY ORIENTATION IS, YOU’RE WELCOME TO COME AND WORK IN SINGAPORE. SOME PEOPLE HAVE AN ISSUE WITH THE 377A, WHICH IS OUR LEGISLATION ON…

    I’M NOT SURE EXACTLY WHAT THE CLAUSE SAYS, BUT BASICALLY, IT’S AGAINST HOMOSEXUAL ACTS. WHICH REMAINS LEGISLATION AND IT WILL FOR SOME TIME.”

    Unquote

    Can we trust him or the whites?

    Please vote wisely for your children and grandchildren’s sake if you still want this country to be around.

  • Harder Truths:

    social collapse is happening before our eyes – yet few $G citizens want to avoid saying anything about it.

    Economic and social criteria show $G is in a recession. No jobs are being created for locals – yet thousands of hungry FT are still being airlifted to work here. Nowadays you see FT not giving a shit about what they do – knowing there is no penalty for them.

    The decay can be masked only so much. When the situation in estates soon deteriorates to ghetto-like levels then any cosmetic ‘fix’ by covering up the symptoms will not affect this cancer. The FT parasites destroy everything before dying the leaving for another host.

    There is no good ending for this. Therefore prepare accordingly.

    “‘I think that’s a lesson which… we ourselves, not just the population, need to know and to remind ourselves every morning that we have to keep on being prepared to reinvent ourselves, and sometimes to cannibalise ourselves, because otherwise somebody else will do it.’”

    I agree 100% with LHL. To get the heads rolling, I strongly suggest we cannibalize the PAP (together with LHL as the center piece).

    Then there is real hope for the survival of the rest of Singapore

  • EdenicAffair:

    A person is poor on the outside is because he or she is (made)poor on the inside. Society,nations driven by man’s base instinct will ultimately lead to an inner poverty in spirit which translate to vast inequality of powers, entitlements and ownership in the material world.

    Hence man constantly seeks to be freed from the hatches and latches of their own trappings.

    They will shed blood for political freedom but to no avail because they will always end up stratified , strangulated and finally buried (or censored by law)

    There is nothing religious about the uncivilised civilize world since the beginning of time.(if you want a religious experience, follow blind sheep into the chambers – for a one man “paid” show or service – of darkness or stupidity)

    That being said, the Author was right(make complete sense). Only the truth sets you free but it is not yours or my truth but the way, the truth which will lead to the life, only the Author knows.

    Any political party or maverick leader/scholar/holy junkies who knows not or attempt to deviate from the script will fail or fall from grace.

    Let there be peace on earth. If you defy the spirit of peace( this will not come about by Wat of “the rule of law” – look at china and Singapore), there shall be no remission.

  • High time ship out:

    To reinvent means to find new ways to tax the people and new Markup and discount tricks and to self elect and self appoint to self-perpetuate itself irregardless of what the people think or needs.

    Not in anyway that he is proposing to rectify the problems that they have created or propose to solve anything. Useless speech, i would definitely say.

  • China "Election""Diversity":

    It’s easy to fool people by saying :
    1. CCCP elects the ruler.
    So there is democracy in China.

    This is a fallacy:
    A. “Election” is reserved for voting by the electorate. CCCP Selects their Leader. It’s appointed by the group of people.

    SG also selects the pm by the cabinet.

    The CCCP is a group of Like-Minded elites. Those who do not share the same ideology are excluded from the decision making.

    This is not Democracy.

    2. Diversity :
    A. Loosely speaking yes, even within a group of like-minded people, there is diversity in opinions.

    But this is a small subset of all different opinions within the country. It’s not Representative of the population.

    Might as well say 3 opinions is diversity?

    Diversity within an inbreeding group is not true Diversity . It is a subset of true diversity.

    Agree.

    We checked wiki on G20 when we saw pap lying liar lky clown on tv in Osaka.

    G20 countries does not include 70% sheep island.

    We wonder why pap lying liar lky clown is so thick skinned to be at G20 when 70% sheep island is not in the grouping.

    This brings to mind some acquaintances who sucks up. These pretenders pretend to be someone when they are NOT. sickening pieces of shit.

    To avoid doubt, just ask the Cambodian and Vietnamese the reality definition – if any – of the difference between “invasion” and “liberation”.

    AND YES, OTHERWISE SOMEBODY ELSE WILL DO IT ON OUR UNSOLICITED BEHALF!

  • PAP be honest for once!:

    The electricity market has opened up a lot of dark holes which PAP has in their absolute arrogance cracked fissures into the dark holes which they have bred a humongous harem of bootlickers to help concealed. It is time that citizens demand PAP to vomit clean what they have been hiding that they r spending billions to hide their evil by conning once again Singaporeans to extend their lives for another 5 years. Sensibility has it they will never risk their lives n fortune to come honest n transparent. PAP gives Singaporeans really no alternative when they openly show contempt of the Laws n the evforcerscparticularly the Bench and its Chief by legislating thru the Parliament which they have absolute control to be lord over the Laws by having its own Court with themselves as both prosecutor n judge with no constitutionally justice procedure. The constitutionally guaranteed independent public institutions have been near completed with the 3rd, 4th lPAP generations defying the integrity n dignity of these institution n harpooned them to be their court jesters n slaves.

    If Singaporeans remain lethargic n complacent, it is not just that they lost their CPF thru a deliberate laundering via excuses of medical insurance which further incurred watering down your own saving. The signs r all there with the electricity open market firing up the resliyybof eaten up alive by PAP n its despicable bootlickers. The 10 millions pop call by Heng is a blatant admission that all the previous election promises r just lies to gain their 5 years to enslave citizens to comply to their traitouous greed n bully!

    Get them out to start Operation Exposure to really see what has the nation n to what extent has their greeds has damaged the nation. Najib in his short term n UMNO have opened up many Malaysians including UMNO fringe members their eyes n thank diety for finding out late but just before complete bankruptcy n foreign domination thru economic commitment n corruption.

    Mandate by law exclude self gratification, glorification n nepoticism. Indulging in self endowment of any kind incl aforesaid n are criminal if the public institutions retain their integrity n honor their oath of offices!

    No other way to save ourselves. Vote PAP out to initiate Operation Exposure to rescue what r left!

    abuse of the mandate n
