How long can our luck hold?

The ugliness of top men in office is being unveiled daily for all to see. Bush and all his lies about WMD and how he fixed his opponents is now under official investigation. And nearby we have the dominant and cannot be wronged Mahathir who has initiated the opening of his own can of worms. He was untouchable as a PM, who was also a Home Affairs Minister, Finance Minister, Foreign Minister, Trade Minister. Actually he was a one man Govt. A clear recipe for disaster. And the disaster is going to explode. We have been very lucky. We have LKY, Chok Tong and Hsien Loong, all men of unquestionable integrity, as our PMs. Can our luck hold forever? Can the next PM be just as honest and honourable that he will not do a Mahathir? This is a danger that we are facing as a nation. Are our institutions developed to prevent absolute power in the hands of one man or a few men?

I suppose you also believe in Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny. Another shining example of the success of the regime's propaganda machinery aka National Education.

believing in santa claus isn't a bad thing actually. during santa claus season everyone is happy and a lot of merry making, enjoy the good life.

Yeah, it's good for them to know that you believe the unquestionable integrity baloney. As they say, the truth is always not what it seems. One fine morning, we will well wake up to the stark reality that the angels we think we know are actually devils in disguise. That's what normally happens when you have unquestioning blind faith in something or someone. mark my words.

well, i am not alone. i have 66.6% to keep me company. quite a comfortable feeling when the strength of a truth is measured by the number of believers. the more people believe in it, the more true it should be: )

WHat's the use of a country having No. 1 airport and No. 1 airline when its citizens are effectively slaves of the powers that be.
