Hating The PAP: Part I

There’s a lot to hate the PAP for, if you’ve lived in Singapore for any length of time.

  • Making Singaporeans docile
  • Fostering a mentality of govt-dependency
  • Robbing our civil liberties
  • No free press
  • Unjustified restrictions in almost every area of life in Singapore
  • Cruel and unusual criminal punishments
  • Persecution of political opponents
  • Continual raising of barriers to entry for political competition
  • Unjustified ISA detentions
  • High-handed and arrogant party leadership
  • No accountability for billions of SWF investment losses
  • Useless million-dollar ministers
  • No accountability even with million-dollar ministers
  • Soaring property prices
  • Overcrowding of infrastructure
  • Foreigners crowding out Singaporeans
  • Low wage growth, especially among low-wage workers
  • Decline in quality of life and standard of living
  • The most expensive cars and roads in the world
  • Traffic jams, even with the most expensive cars and roads in the world.

    There’s probably more but you get the picture.

    I see a lot of PAP-haters in TR, constantly attacking the PAP and spewing vulgarities. There’s also a large no of such PAP-haters who do the same on PAP’s wall on Facebook.

    But such hatred only serves to blind the hater, and makes it easier for the Dark Side to take control.
