The nightmare that is coming
Another 10 or 20 years, many more Singaporeans will be in their 70s and 80s and 90s and still alive. All rich and happy with plenty of money in their CPF accounts. And thanks to the advancement of medical science, they will live to a ripe old age. Some may make do with a walking stick, some with a motorised wheelchair. Slow and a little feeble, life goes on. And in their midst, young, strong and sturdy foreign workers abound and plentiful. It is so tempting to take from the helpless and physically weak uncles and aunties. It is so easy. Will we see an increase in old uncles and aunties being robbed in broad daylight? Will old uncles and aunties fear living their homes? Will this nightmare visit us?
