A government afraid of its people
"People should not be afraid of their governments. The Government should be afraid of their people. " - from the movie "V for Vendetta".We are now witnessing this in Singapore -- 20-year jail term for assaulting an MP, 2-year jail term for unlawful assembly, PAP spies to monitor online forums. The PAP government is now very afraid of its people.
"When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty ." - Thomas Jefferson, third President of the United States.
For the last decade in particular, the PAP government has been prostituting the country to foreigners, squandering the people's hard-earned pension on fancy projects that failed spectacularly, plundering the commoners' wealth with exorbitant public housing prices, increasing the tax burden on the poor to finance tax breaks for the rich, and all the while enriching itself with obscene salaries.
The PAP government has failed its people. An ever increasing number of Singaporeans are living a life of misery. While the government continues to hoodwink the people in the hope that they won't notice who's really responsible for their hardships, the PAP leaders are also getting an insurance policy in case things turn ugly, namely, passing special laws to protect themselves from the people they are supposed to serve.
The strength of the Gurkha contingent in Singapore is now at its peak. There used to be less than 200 Gurkhas in Singapore when it gained independence, but there are now more than 2000 Gurkhas in Singapore protecting the ruling elites. That's the barometer of how much the PAP government fears its people -- it is one of the very few governments in the world that rely on foreign mercenaries to protect itself.
