The Taiwanese government helps their people while the PAP seeks to profit from their people

A Taiwanese family in need can get a maximum of NT$180,000 (S$8050) a year in subsidies to help hire a domestic helper, and an additional NT$150,000 (S$6700) a year in allowance. And because the minimum wage of a foreign domestic helper is NT$17,000 (S$760) a month, the subsidy and allowance provided by the government would be able to fully cover for the hiring of a foreign domestic helper, in addition to other expenses.

In Taiwan, the government provides subsidies to support families in need of assistance to hire a domestic helper. In Singapore, the government makes Singaporeans pay for an additional levy (which the government earns from), if Singaporeans were to hire foreign helpers.

In Singapore, foreign domestic workers are paid as low as S$450 a month. On top of that, the government requires families who hire foreign domestic workers to pay an additional levy to the government of S$300 to S$450, which is as much or almost as much as hiring a foreign domestic helper. In other words, for every foreign domestic helper a family hires, not only do they have to pay for the salary of the helper, they have to pay the same amount or almost the same amount to let the government earn from.

Also, while Singapore’s cost of living is about twice as expensive as Taiwan, a foreign domestic helper in Singapore earns only about half that of a foreign domestic helper in Taiwan. Even for families in need of assistance, the government still requires them to pay a levy of S$60 to hire a foreign domestic helper.

This is the difference between a more-humane government and a government taken over my elites who use government to profit off citizens.

In Taiwan, the government protects citizens by providing subsidies and allowances for them to receive social support. In Singapore, the government earns revenue from citizens by making them pay additional levies for social support.

This is the difference between knowing you have the freedom to vote for a government you want, and not believing you have the freedom to do so. This is the difference between a real democracy and an illusory one.

  • LKY Legacy: Sinchiapor Inc.:

    From the great schism of the 80′s, this once great meritocratic Republic – of natural aristocrats by, with & for the people – has been spiralling downwards into a crony-capitalism ruled by an oligarchy of educated elitists: the young see no future in nurturing offspring, the old know only a laborious trudge towards their graves. This unholy land of inherent Narcissism.

  • Competition vs Monopoly:

    In those countries, people are smart. They have competition for politicial parties. So politicians must take care of people.

    In Sinkieland, well, people are not so smart. They make a monopoly political party. With a monopoly, politicians take care of themselves lah.

    Welfare of the people
    vs

  • PAP's Impending Doom:

    But Roy is correct about Spore govt profit orientattion. It was on Channle 8 TV news. The foreign lady said solar energy generated is for HDB common areas – meaning households still have to pay. Excess energy is sent back to the system. One guy was interviwed about using solar energy here for his flat. He said his electricity bill is minus $60.

    Pap close down. Doom, doom doom. Hohoho.

  • smart nation needs smart voter:

    a smart nation needs smart citizens aka smart voters.

    who is a smart voter?

    a smart voter is one who never reads the pap states times and watches the pap mediacorpse and never votes pap.

    like that is smart?

    Yes, because by not reading the pap states times do not get BSed by pap.

    Yes, because by not watching the pap mediacorpse no blood boil leading to stroke.

    Yes, because by not voting pap but OPPO pap votes get closer to 50.01% which makes pap folks work harder and work better for their onself declared ownself S$m wage and 24 months GDP growth bonus.

  • HDB flats depreciate to ZERO:

    Remember “what’s wrong with making some money?”. Constant “rent-seeking’ might increase reserves but reserves cannot buy time.

    Also, Taiwan has global companies like TSMC, Asus, Acer, MSI, Gigabyte, etc. Singapore has none. Shows LKY did not have the “smarts” and/or guts of Taiwan politicians. That is why Singapore needs a new paradigm. This requires regime change.

    i have explained to many people in the law circles why ruling members suing their critics in their capacity as people in authority and power should never be allowed. Public servants should be open to scrutiny of their performance while in govt office.

    Human psychology regarding the mind should be understood clearly. When someone raises a doubt about the nation’s governance, it means systems are not working as intended. There should be clear differentiation between a defamation suit on private ground vs matters concerning the national interest and public office. it should be addressed effectively and not framed into the context of defamation/ lack of evidence ect. it is the duty of public office to prove the allegations wrong. it will also spur them to operate a transparent system to avoid themselves being implicated. The essence of democracy is this.

  • PC Ong:

    Please lah, this is a very stupid comparison. If you want compare Singapore, we should be compared to New York, London, Tokyo or Paris. Singapore is a city of the future which the whole world look up to. Taiwan will not even survive. Taiwan will eventually squander all its reserves on military. For what? Very stupid. Better for them to go for reunification for China, only then is their future guaranteed.

  • Rejoinder to PC Ong:

    http://www.humanistictexts.org/sun_yat.htm

    “Labor laws will be enacted, labor conditions will be ameliorated, labor organizations will be protected, and the general advancement of the laboring class will be promoted.

    The old idea of loyalty was to be loyal to the Emperor. Since there is no Emperor in the Republic, some people consider the virtue of loyalty no longer necessary. This is a misconception. Although the idea of personal loyalty to the Emperor is overthrown, we must be loyal to the nation, to the people, and to the cause for which we work and live. Loyalty to the nation requires that the individual be willing to sacrifice for the public welfare, even to the giving up of his life.

    The virtues of humanity (jen) and love (ai) are well established in old Chinese ethics. Mo Tzu’s philosophy of love is as easily comprehended as that of Jesus. In our political philosophy, such maxims as “Love thy people as thy children, and “Love men and be humane to creatures”, indicate that our ancient philosophers included everything in the word ai or “love.” Some people maintain that our philosophy of jen and ai is not as good as that of the Westerners, because they come to China and establish schools, hospitals, and philanthropic institutions, while we merely philosophize. In truth, ours is just as good as that of the foreigners, but our weakness lies in that we do not practice our moral teachings as faithfully as the foreigners. What we should learn from the foreigners today is not philosophy, but their way of practicing philosophy.”

  • Ren or Jen is non-Racist:

    The twin concepts of JEN (WREN)
    and LI are often said to constitute the basis of Confucianism:-

    A. Jen (Wren): human heartedness; goodness; benevolence, man-to-man-ness; what makes man distinctively human (that which gives human beings their humanity)

    1) The virtue of virtues; Confucius said he never really saw it full expressed. The other virtues follow from it. He never gives and defends a definition of it although he does characterize it.

    2) It is dearer than life itself–the man of Jen will sacrifice his life to preserve jen, and conversely it is what makes life worth living.

    3) Jen is a sense for the dignity of human life–a feeling of humanity towards others and self-esteem for yourself:-

    a] Such feeling applies to all men–not just one nation or race. It is the foundation of all human relationships.
    b] There is the belief that jen can be obtained; indeed, there is the belief in the natural perfectibility of man. Hence, he rejects the way of human action where one satisfies likes and avoids dislikes.
    c] The first principle of Confucianism is to act according to jen: it is the ultimate guide to human action.
