Ownself check ownself is a virtue

In the Singapore Perspective 2022 conference, Health Minister Ong Ye Kung was quoted as saying 'ownself check ownself is a virtue, shows government functions well'.

Now that S. Iswaran, the former full cabinet minister in lhl's cabinet has been charged for corruption and other offences, the ownself check ownself fairy tale has turned its ugly head on this pap government. S. Iswaran certainly didn't ownself check ownself deep and thorough enough until he landed in his current sorry predicament.

In order for Parliament to function optimally, having an effective check and balance representation is crucial. Every single one of us is, after all, human.

Nothing is perfect but after having all things considered, I believe that having an effective check and balance Parliament instead of having an absolute parliamentary majority like what we currently have to be the lesser evil.

It is outright naive and utter stupidity even to believe fairy tale rhetoric such as ownself check ownself lalala.... We badly need enough citizens who are clear headed enough not to fall for such seductive fairy tales anymore and that is only in our own national interest. S. Iswaran's case should really be a wake-up call.

I say enough is enough.

Think.

  • Confusion Says:

    A good individual should cultivate the habit of ownself check ownself. Check that one’s behavior is good. Check that one’s thoughts are right. “吾日三省吾身” “I examine myself three times every day.”

    However, Confusion says that is good for social rules. Everyone examines himself. No need for police, lawyers, courts. No need for auditors. That’s utter confusion.

  • Dalai Says :Read My Lips":

    This sound very much like a cat chasing its tail or maybe “what is the sound of one hand clapping?” An episode of “The Simpsons” already answered that philosophical question with OYK clapping one hand with his fingers against his upper wrist.

    Chimps may have 97% of the same DNA as humans, but we do not expect them to follow moral rules. Whether or not chimps can use sign language to communicate, they have no sense of moral obligation. Philosophers are rare. Politicians are a dime a dozen. One would hope that most professors of philosophy weren’t the latter, but if that is the case. They have to make a living.

    Another example of a ‘western-centric politician’ tying his self worth to the erroneous belief that western thought is the end all and be all. Until western
    philosophers loose that conceited notion the eastern philosophy of Dalai’s is not worth considering, they will continue on this path of intellectual masturbation.
    The iconoclast is honored in *MIWs* incapable of perceiving their faults and learning from their mistakes.

  • opposition dude:

    The PAP will tell us all a nice fairytale about how they ownself check their own kaki which led to Is Wah Lan eh getting caught. Good story right? Fool the dafts into thinking that ownself check ownself is good and believable too!

    Joking aside, we can remember PAP’s many silly phrases including but not limited to “Upturn the downturn”, “Cotton comes from sheep”, “No one will be left behind”, “Affordable housing”, “Once in 50 years”, “Natural aristocracy” to name but a few.

    Just keep laughing at them whenever they say something to show just how out of touch they are, all this is omedy gold!

  • Sport Facilities Abuse:

    Public sports facilities build using tax payers monies are being used by ‘private coaching companies’.
    Who actually own these companies???
    No coaching companies should be allowed to use public-funded facilities.
    CPIB/CAD might want to look into this.
    There seems to be permanent shortage of sports facilities built using taxes even though more have been built.
    Public always have problem booking these facilities.

    Only Iswaran himself never ‘Ownself check ownself’.

    AMDK check PAP!

    Iswaran case surfaced after the UK govt wrote to the Singapore govt, seeking help with regards to Bernie Ecclestone’s tax evasion, who parked a whooping 400 million pound in Singapore banks. Bernie case brings more mysteries and questions than answers. Who was/were Bernie facilitator(s) or backer(s) who helped him parked his cash here without detection or awareness from the relevant authority? Were Singapore investigations carried out only at the behest of the UK? Or were the investigators already on the trail long before the UK requested help? Why is Singapore govt funding 60% of the 135 to 150 million of the total race cost when OBS owns the right to f1?

  • MillionDollar:

    In view of $40Million catered for extending the use of existing EZlink platform, I have the following questions for the parliament and Minister of Transport:

    1. How much was invested/spend on ‘Simply Go’ system platform, so far?

    2. How long the ‘Simply Go’ platform is contracted or planned for before the next sunset of ‘Simply Go’?

    3. How much ‘Simply Go’ cost to maintain its system and hardware yearly?

    4. Why existing contactless platform of EZ was not incorporated as ‘Critical Performance Variables’ of ‘Simply Go’ platform?

    5. Where can the public inspect ‘Simply Go’ yearly financial statements?

    In many countries, the state incorporated companies are NOT exempt from public disclosure of its financial statements for public scrutiny. When Public listed companies need to publish quarterly results, it is ridiculous to know that companies incorporated by the states using public funds are any lesser in disclosure in terms of financial spending.

    Was it because there are NO member of parliament pushing for such legislation?
    Because over 90% members of the parliament come from the same political party and expected to toll the line regardless of any moral obligations?

    Is that a virtue of self-checks?
