To each his own
Singapore Incorporation is slowly disintegrating. I can sense that there is a lack of concern, anxiety, taking ownership or appreciation of how one arsehole can bring the downfall of the whole incorporation. The impression I get is that everyone is only concerned about his own arsehole being stuff with gold and not being screwed. As long as that is taken care off, no one will bother about the big picture. The fumbling and crumbling of the education industry is a case in point. Is there another urgency and anxiety to make sure that the Education Hub goal is not compromised by all the fly by night operators? One by one is crashing down. And can anyone believe that all these problems will not affect the Education Hub? It will not affect the Education Hub, but more. The image of Singapore as a squeaky clean and efficient place, that everything works, will be compromised as well. This is the same kind of mentality like we often heard from one organisation to another. It is affordable. 2c here, 20c there, $2 elsewhere, all affordable on its own. But the aggregate of all these, the big picture, is that it burns a big hole to those who cannot afford them. Maybe we can still afford to have a few private schools closing down and a few hundred students crying on the streets. And caveat emptor hor. What happens to Singapore Incorporation when every bit is intertwined to bake a bigger pie?
