How the Feck Did Singaporeans Get Fooked? It Is Human Nature?

Sunday Times provided an interesting read on 5 August 2012, "System in place to reduce corruption" by Goh Chin Lian.

I also read "Corruption is kept in check in S'pore: Shanmugam" by asiaone here

Letter writer to ST Forum page Sudhir Thomas Vadaketh was accused of showing "absurdity" in his argument that meritocracy "may inflate the egos of those who succeed such that their sense of entitlement and privilege can supersede their better judgement". The rebuke came from Law Minister, K Shanmugum.

"Absurd" as it may be, I have to agree with Sudhir when the inflated ego of a certain MLM (multi-level-minister) had the audacity to ask Singaporeans to 'repent' if they voted WP into Aljunied GRC. 'Repent' they did with residents of Hougang in the by election this year [Link]

In answering junior college students and undergraduates who asked Shanmugum repeatedly why Singapore had so many graft cases if it is supposed to be a clean country with high pay for public officers, the Law Minister's answer: "It is human nature".

Duh, so if it's 'human nature', why the crap are we paying him and his colleagues the millions$ salary? Many of the PAP mintsters are getting more than what Barack Obama gets as President of USA? Is it due to the corruptibility threshold (human nature?) of Singaporean politicians that is so different [banyak atas = way up high] from politicians elsewhere? Do PAP ministers have to be paid more because it is in their 'human nature' to be bought off; to switch off; to sleep off; to fook off if their basic greed instinct is not cashtified*?

With the shit hitting the ceiling now in MND regarding the controversial tender of (URA/ChairmanMahBowTan/HippoDuckTour) river taxi, will we see more human nature at play?

Please read this to hit this

In the NParks (under MND) bicycle tender, the open-to-tender period was shortened over the CNY holidays. In the river taxi tender by URA (again under MND), the open-to-tender period was extended after the closing date benefiting a certain tenderer.

In the words of DPM Teo to college students, "What do you think, Mr Khaw?"

It may be white but . . . it may be dirty.

The minister is not answering the basic question of why we are seeing so many unlawful issues these days.

A simple answer like "human nature is corrupt" ignores the core of the question which is "why now, recently, as in, last few years,".

Did human nature change, prior to Lee kuan Yew becoming senile, prior to the major policy changes affecting singaporean lives in last 10 years, were people will less corrupt than today? The naivety and shallow answer of the minister is designed to avoid the issues of mis-government. Anyone with brains can see through the thin veil behind which the minister and the entire government machinery hides.

If they dont know the answer, why are they paid such a huge salary, and such an important appointment, or was it to allow them to speak down to the top CEO.

Our brilliant ministers are not brilliant at all. Why should Singapore pay them millions in salary?

"Why should Singapore pay them millions in salary?"

Because my grandfather says so.

Why are there so many graft cases today? My theory is that somewhere along our journey, we abandoned Honesty and Integrity as travelling companions, and replaced them with Greed, Money and Arrogance.

So isn't it is human nature that GIC/TH falsified the account of return as discover by Christopher Balding to coverup the extraordinary loss of investment , and continue to pay themselves millions that they are worth much more ? Isn't that the government collude themselves by turning blind eyes by not doing anything other than let the public take the loss and write-off of these companies that can eat both sides of cake of being private and public as and when they feel like it ?
