Confucianism and Curry Fish recipe
What has Confucianism and curry fish got to do with Singapore's success? In a bowl of curry fish, there are fish, vegetables and curry water. A few will get to eat the fish, some will be happy to have the vegetables and some would end up with curry water. Then some will clear the leftovers. Our success is to be able to convince everyone that those who got the fish deserve to eat the fish, those who got vegetables and curry water deserve rightfully deserve them too. And the cleaners are there to clear the rubbish. In Confucianism, it is to see to it that everyone is happy in their own station in life. Singapore is lucky to find this secret recipe and balance. Everyone accepts their station in life and all under heaven is peaceful. It will only break down when the curry water consumers or vegetable eaters think that they should get a piece of the fish. So far so good. Even the cleaners are happy.
