What’s The Point Of Moral Outrage?

My neighbor across the street had a flag on his front-gate during the Covid, until someone ‘stole’ it (not me). Then another miniature Singapore flag was posted inside, facing the window, and visible from the street. After September, I’ve noticed it’s gone now, and I first thought their dog had knocked down the miniature flagpole, but the window is still empty. Did he chickened out? Dare I hope he’s seen the light?

Our legal system and it’s institutions could use some shaking up. Politics now amounts to not much more than lawsuit filing and politically-motivated inquiries. Mockery and sarcasm have their place in politics for sure; but they (the legal system) are adjutants to the truth in confronting leaders who are out of touch with their citizens’ needs—not the mainstays.

“Reputation” is a quaint and antique concept. Their reputations are something we should care about? I am not quite sure if this appeal to their reputations is a literary device or you truly believe that there is such a thing. They are not protecting their reputations; they are living up to their reputations. What did the scorpion say to the frog? Its in their nature.

That and labeling anyone who disagrees with you as ‘free-rider’ or some equally bleak epithet. It is the same thought patterns that separated the Royalty of the old world from the serfs or peasants or slaves. What these humans thought or cared about did not even register on the consciousnesses of the Royalty or the Owners.

For a peasant or slave to express an opinion on almost anything resulted in immediate something usually painful. This is the vision of what Royalty wants to restore. And like a lot of the serfs and peasants of yore who loved their “kind masters” many of these somewhat ‘uneducated individuals’ feel that way. Others are just so wound up in their own pity and finally realized it’s all a show to keep the peasants in line (like my neighbor’s).

What i want, is a justice that once nominated and confirmed it can throw off the shackles of political thought, and decide cases based on what the constitution says, and what is best for the people.

    Whether your penchant is to focus on local politics, with personal agenda or not, Singapore political situation is really no different from what’s happening in Thailand, HK/China or any western country.

    It is all top down rule. Don’t step on the reptile or it will bite you to….death.

  • Sinchiapor Pte. Unlimited cow:

    ***SOCIALISM***

    You have 2 cows. You give one to your neighbour.

    ***COMMUNISM***

    You have 2 cows. The State takes both and gives you some milk.

    ***FASCISM***

    You have 2 cows. The State takes both and sells you some milk.

    ***TRADITIONAL CAPITALISM***

    You have two cows. You sell one cow to buy a bull. Your herd multiplies, and the economy grows. You sell them and retire on the income.

    ***VENTURE (SWF) CAPITALISM***

    You have two cows. You sell three of them to your publicly listed company, using letters of credit opened by your brother-in-law at the bank, and then execute a debt/equity swap with an associated general offer so that you get all four cows back, with a tax exemption for five cows. The milk rights of the six cows are transferred via an intermediary to a Cayman Island company secretly owned by the majority shareholder, who sells the rights to all seven cows back to your listed company. The annual report says the company owns eight cows, with an option on one more.

  • Harder Truths:

    The majority of the population are now foreigners who run the overpopulated island, and more are coming in by the hour.

    Team Despot is stealing whatever their grubby little hands can touch.
    They have the judiciary, law enforcement and civil service as their personal servants.

    Forget about the old $inkapore – it is gone forever. What you see is the reality and nothing now can stop the rot from destroying what is left.

  • Punish Liew Mun Leong:

    Straits Times: Parti Liyani has decided to go ahead with complaint against 2 DPPs for misconduct: NGO

    Right move by Parti Liyani. Should get to the bottom of this saga to know the following:

    (1) Did the Liew family illegally deploy their maid?

    (2) Did they try to frame her for stealing to stop her from reporting the illegally deployment to MOM?

    If the answer to the above is yes, then Liew Mun Leong and his son should be punished severely (hefty fine + pay damages to the maid + pay maid’s lawyer + jail time). The two DPP should also be punished severely by dismissal and reported to the Law Society for further disciplinary action.

  • SEND FOREIGNERS HOME:

    Straits Times: Parliament: Singapore has to stay open to the world, be united as it seeks to rejuvenate economy, says DPM Heng

    HSK talking cock again

    It is more important and urgent that unemployed/retrenched Singaporeans get jobs than for Singapore to “stay open” (for foreigners to work in Singapore).

    Also, calling for “unity’ is an insult jobless Singaporeans. “Unity” does not put food on the table. Cash (from job) does.

    Th Government should cancel the work visa of foreigners to force them to go home. Singaporeans can take over their job in Singapore.

    The best way to rejuvenate the economy is by putting Singaporeans to work by giving them the job of foreigners.

    This shows again that Singapore is still a 3rd world country with low skilled, poorly trained workers and supervisors. Blame PAP.

    This is SOP for a third world island selling bullsh*t to citizens.

    Bullsh*t #1: power cable is supposed to last many years – obviously bought on Ali Baba by contractor at cheapest price with a fake warranty / guarantee

    Bullsh*t #2: contractor will claim has nothing to do with him and Authority has to take it up with Jack Ma.

    Bullsh*t #3: Authority (full of FT) will claim they have no way to control what their contractor friend (also full of FT who are friends of the Authority FT) buys / does / installs / operates. Their job description will show they have nothing to do with this.

    Bullsh*t #4: No one did any inspection on this cable or the problem would have been found out. Or if it was found out, then nothing was still done. Either way, the maintenance people are given to useless FT sub-cons (just like the pump overflow case).

    Bullsh*t #5: Even after the power trip, wrong procedure to draw power before isolating the system that is at fault. Major breach of protocol and very hazardous outcome – people could have been killed. But since this operation is also done by FT with no training or common sense the outcome was obvious.

    Bullsh*t #6: You will only hear some wayang after the Authority cleverly shifts all blame to FT and not because the system failed.

    You can also know more by getting this manual: “THE FT GUIDE O nHOW TO FAIL AT YOUR JOB BUT SUCCEED IN $G” – available from an FT working next to you.

    Reported on CNA :Quote -”NEW YORK: A year ago, Flora Growth Chief Executive Damian Lopez had just spent a chunk of his company’s seed capital buying a Colombian cannabis producer, and was fighting his way through the legal and financial hurdles that have made development of the industry such a challenge over the past decade.

    These days, a boom in sales of his hemp-derived health food and beauty products during the coronavirus pandemic, and the prospect of an easing of marijuana laws in the aftermath of the US presidential election, have him sealing a US$30 million funding round and making plans for a US public floatation early next year…..

    “I think the election will be a huge catalyst,” Lopez said on Wednesday. He was busy planning for the initial public offering (IPO) with investment banking firm Boustead Securities set to be the company’s chief adviser.

    Lopez is far from alone. US-based dispensary business Gage Cannabis announced two weeks ago it would seek to list in the new year, while synthetic cannabinoid maker BioMedican has also laid out plans to go public in the first half of 2021.

    Another hemp-based health products maker, Vertical Wellness, told Reuters this week it too was looking to debut next year.

    Today’s outlook is a far cry from 2018, when many Canadian-based players created for last year’s legalisation there, as well as expectations of the widespread opening of US markets, faced fines and shutdowns, or were forced to merge, due to regulatory roadblocks that hampered growth prospects…….”Unquote .

    Response : So all the cannabis drug mskers company are banging in on a Biden run period where cannabis will be approved in the making of drug or do you call it medicine ? So how do one expect Donald Trump to be re-elected again with potential billion dollar company drug makers companies supporting his opponents ? So Biden period will be another e***b*** women wing period ? Money making by those evil powerhouse women wing who may have origin in India or moral rule over cannabis ?

    In August, the Taiwan government said it would give the ecommerce site six months to re-register as a Chinese-backed company rather than with international backing, or leave the island. The government claimed that Claddagh Venture Investment is backed by China’s Alibaba and should have registered as a Chinese-backed firm. It was also concerned that the company would send user data back to mainland China.

    zzzzzz

    Will our SG gov be as ” CLEAR ” as the Taiwanese gov ???

  • AdayOfReckoning:

    Read the “earthquake”(social uprising, especially the young -third,fourth generations) and anti-anointed(anointed to power) development all over the world.

    Singapore, same political philosophy as the others, has anointed her own strong man into power with equal if not worst (“white” in appearance or by law) controversies than the others(only muted/stifled,hushed or silenced by law).

    Singapore has influenced many nations, especially Asian countries, to deploy law to control political discourse or subdue/manipulate its citizens or people.

    Singapore favours the rich over the rights of the people or labourers.

    Yet Singapore leaders are or have been in full and undisrupted power to commit injustices, without resistance on the ground, under heaven.

    The leaders in lalaland or fantasy land have no clue they are ….sinful.

    Singapore, you reap what you sow. In your greed and LUSTS, you sowed seed of destruction everywhere.

  • just be patient:

    GE2015 was a disappointment. but the good excuse is pap liar lee kuan yew died which is the best of everything that can happen.

    GE2020 was somewhat of a disappointment. even so, fellow Singaporeans of Sengkang did bring some joy into a sad situation.

    humans live on hope.

    we say, let us be patient. a non pap Singapore is not made in one GE. but rather, over two.

    GE2020 was the start.

    GE2024 that’s it. pap loses West Coast to PSP, East Coast to WP, Marine Parade to WP, AMK to anybody. WP retains all its seats in Aljunied and Sengkang. a new coalition government between PSP and WP forms, with complete removal of all existing pap heads and clan members, including those in gic temasick.

    but that is not all. the better joy is when the pap clown and wife and nabbed by new police chief prosecuted under new agc and found guilty under new chief justice. life is worth living from then on.

    just be patient.

    it is going to happen, and very soon, in less than FOUR years.

    @ Sojourner

    ANOTHER PIECE OF INSIGHTFUL WRITING for intense thought reflections.

    The question of online publication liability for “defamation” in need of reform in Australia has attracted these observations in its conclusions of a research paper on communications law matters.

    Defamation law reform in Australia….. may seem to some to be inconsequential as an effective cause of action and, in the case of abuse of process, as a chill on the voice of the responsible media,especially where the claim is brought by the rich and famous (or perhaps infamous). However, these issues require consideration because one of the most devastating results of online publication is that liability for defamation is increasingly hitting what couldbe called ‘the small end of town’,namely ordinary members of the community who have used social media or a blog site to make a comment, or who are themselves the subject of such comments,sometimes with devastating personal or professional results. :

    http://www.austlii.edu.au/au/journals/CommsLawB/2019/1.pdf

    The same article articulate these interesting viewpoints

    “Another relevant factor, in sociological terms, is that there is what could be called a ‘widespread public concern’ that defamation proceedings may be brought to stop political criticism. This is not
    a new concern.

    In Theophanous v Herald & Weekly Times Ltd,110 Deane J foresaw what he called ‘widespread public concern’ at ‘the extraordinary development and increased utilisation of the means of mass communication’, warning:

    … the use of defamation proceedings in relation to political communication and discussion has expanded to the stage where there is a widespread public perception that such proceedings represent…….an effective way to ‘stop’ political criticism, particularly at election times.In addition to these concerns, the rapid way in which societal value are changing on issues….”
