Values

Values, not for what it is worth but the principles that help us to decide what is right and wrong.

80/20 rules, 80% were poor for a new developing nation. Most of us were born poor in the 60’s, we went to primary school poor. We were given milk to drink on arrival to school and during recess time too, bring your own plastic mug (red for girls or blue for boys) for a huge serving of milk to supplement nourishment. Occasionally, some dog biscuits to munch, most of us did not even have a proper set of teeth to munch. Dental cares were free, 50 cents for school fees, 50 cents to visit the public clinic, and foreigners paid many times more. We, the citizens of Singapore …

Singapore got kicked out of Malaysia, we sang Majulah Singapura without understanding what it meant. But we recited the Pledge every morning with some degree of pride and we mingled well with all races. How the hell are we more racist today than 50 years ago, with prejudice. What did we not do right? It was more socialistic; it was more left leaning policies.
PAP was in power with a conviction, created jobs, rallied the citizens to strive, get out of poverty…… the political party’s leadership’s values influenced us, no littering, no long hair, National Service…… “If you want money, do not go into politic” said Mr Lee Kuan Yew then. What had happened since?

PAP’s values changed and so have we, but the most important human values like integrity, trust, faith, respect, honesty, caring, love, remained in us. We expect the ruling government of the day to be accountable and transparent with us sharing the same values.

In China, you can see huge signages of “为人民服务” everywhere, it was hand written by Chairman Mao Tze Tong. It literally meant “To Serve the People”, it is a mission for the government from Day 1 and it did not change over the last 71 years. And the civil servants and officials are constantly reminded “不忘初心, 牢记使命” meaning “Remain true to our original aspiration and keep our mission firmly in mind”. In every Ministries and public services, they lived up to it. Even top government officials are humbled by their mission.

The PAP today needs to be reminded that they have lost their way, they have forgotten to serve and to take care of us. 3G leadership had inherited the power to govern but not the power to serve. So much have being focused on talents to be recruited to govern and talents imported to work here, failed big time to see the loss of jobs for we the citizens of Singapore. For a first world developed nation, the bottom 20% have remained poor now, barely scraping through. With Covid-19, many are struggling to survive. The migrant workers are treated better with free meals, WiFi, paid quarantine and during Circuit Breaker. How are the poor citizens of Singapore taken care of?

The 4G leadership are struggling too ….. in different ways. When millions are paid for them to do a good job, they just have to deliver, we do not want to hear bullshit, hindsight and excuses. We expect better men and women to lead and to govern, to justify your millions. Do they have a probation period? Some should be fired! Or we would get rid of incompetency through our votes in the next General Election, exercising our rights and our wishes.

People first: Not talent, but human capital, good or bad, that’s all we have. Make the best out of us, the citizens of Singapore. We do not need hand-outs; we need good paying jobs. Stop bringing in foreigners until we the citizens of Singapore are gainfully employed. If dignity is our pride, help us to make a living, make a statement to eliminate poverty, elevate incomes, measurable targets to achieve in serving we the citizens of Singapore. Or bullshit another 5 years term.

  • needs to be reminded?:

    Agree with the writer!! If the government of the day needs to be reminded that they have lost the way to serve the citizens, then they are not in the business of governing the country!! If they are given the rights to govern, they should repeg the obscene salaries they are paying themselves!!
    They are not so ‘elite’ and not so super-human to demand the type of salaries they are drawing now. After all they are only ‘mediocre’ as can be seen from the performance in handling the COVID19 so far!!

    ” …. We expect better men and women to lead and to govern, to justify your millions.”

    @M Gen; When you have a scholar telling you “cotton comes from sheep”, you better think. Either you are stupid or your schools had taught you wrongly.

    When this scholar is your $million leader, from PAP some more, you have to ponder very hard. How long you were an idiot? Do you need to go back to school, lifelong learning?

    Whole world is laughing at Singaporeans, you need a scholar to tell you “cotton comes from sheep”!!

    No wonder Singaporeans did not realise the use of the Reserve is the use of their own money. “羊毛出在羊身上” !!!!

    Covid 19 tells us clearly that 4Gs are not big deal at all. They are just not value for money.

  • Wish you well:

    @M Gen. Wish you well because you wish Sg & Sgpoeans well. When we have degenerated leaders, degenerated poreans follow. I think a Big overhaul is merited before we diminish further in dignity & life. VTO.

  • Foreigners are hardworking:

    Dear Gen,
    You said We do not need hand-outs; we need good paying jobs.

    You can only speak for yourselves.

    Do you know the majority of Singaporeans are lazy and unmotivated and always looking for hand-outs ?

    Go ask Gilbert Goh. He had been conned by many lazy and unmotivated Singaporeans.

    Facts:

  • I wouldn't glorify Mao ....:

    Red Father of the genocidal Cultural Revolution in which millions of innocent citizens were annihilated: a demonic insane megalomania that included Mao’s wife and the Gang of Four, turning China backwards towards barbarism in the name of loyalty and service the communist party!

  • China Breakup:

    Dear Gen,
    You must be stupid to believe in CCP “为人民服务” hahahaha….

    Whether it is ROC DPP or PRC CCP, when both DPP/CCP said “为人民服务” it means filling their own pockets from people’s money.

  • Who fathered HSK?:

    But they reported a mere 3.3% unemploent rate despite the mother of all crisis.

    So, before the crisis, why is there not a -3.3% unemployment rate then?

    Like little difference . So , why the hoohah the making and tapping on so much reserves? Where does the money eventually get used up on ? Is there an independent audit on the spending of sinkies again based on unquestioning trust?

    If so, I would never hire an Singaporean accountants.

    Covid 19 tells us clearly that 4Gs are not big deal at all. They are just not value for money.

    Actually, from day one we already knew they just not value for money. This Covid-19 proves it is true.

    Just imagine all these came from them;

    50 years once flooding happened within 3 months.
    Flooding was ponding.
    Collision is come-in-contact.
    Taking care of babies is doing National Service.
    Leaking of medical data is no commercial values.
    Families are getting smaller, so flat size can be smaller.
    Need $2000 bicycle cause it could be taken in public transport, but none did.
    Sold town council software and then pay rental to use it.
    Only need a small space to has sex.
    $400,000 for the construction of a bin center.
    Building shelters for smoker to avoid second hard smoke.
    No need mask in a pandemic.
    Do talk in public transport to stop the spread of virus.
    Cotton comes from sheep.
    Experience from SARS, but none could be used in SARS-nCov-2.

    Can we continue to pay galaxy’s highest pay for excuses!!
