May the farce be with you




I must have written quite a few pieces of farce lately. And I know that whatever I wrote, some will agree with me and some will disagree with me. But that is only natural. Be it farce or truth, facts or fictions, there will be people who agree or disagree with you. The thing is that in every farce there are some truths and in every truth there are always embedded with farces.

One very pertinent truth that I did not say is that the big tree is falling and the monkeys are going to scatter. Agree? As usual, some will, but the diehards will swear with their pants that the monkeys will stay together. My bet is that this day will come and must come. And it will be a time to write about more farces and more truths.

When Yoda told young Luke, ‘May the farce be with you,’ oops, I mean ‘May the force be with you,’ it was a story of good versus evil, and the force was meant to be good. Luke was also tempted by the Emperor to join the dark side. That was Hollywood and good and evil are easy to tell. In reality, the good and evil are interchangeable. The dark side could be the good side and the force or farce could be the wrong side.

What is also very sure is that in uncertain times like this, many able people will step forward to fulfil their destiny. Many are waiting for the moment, and it will come. The moment is imminent. And a new chapter will begin with new players and old players crisscrossing and taking sides. I can sense the forces of change building up, like Yoda said, feel it, feel the force.

When the big tree falls, the opportunistic capitalist will be there to cut it up and sell the wood, catch the monkeys and sell to zoos and exotic restaurants, and then buy up the land cheap and build a shopping mall or gated-community housing development.

May the profit be with me ;-)

Got finance?

The signs for change is already there. But the stubborn self serving incumbents are bent on going against the forces for change by adopting unfair insidious tactics or strategies. They are capable of painting white, black and black, white. The drooling 60 per cent daft Singaporeans will fall for the trick and will be further exploited and psychoed to go against the force of nature, against the storm that will uproot the tree crowded with unsuspecting inocuous pliable monkeys. The incumbent ruling Pappies are intent on perpetuating in maintaining powers by bringing in new imported citizens who the Pappies believe will vote for them as these new citizens are beholden to them.

The Pappies continue to be self serving and arrogant and all their policies and governance continue to be against the interest of the people. The Pappies do not intend to change and will continue to maintain their elitist status while at the same time they will pull the wool over the people's eyes that what they do are for the people's good. What a hubris? Come 2016 , a mighty storm will definitely usher in the forces for change.

MEMORABLE QUOTES FROM BATMAN - THE DARK KNIGHT

Natascha:
But this is a democracy, Harvey...

Harvey Dent:
When their enemies were at the gates, the Romans would suspend democracy and appoint one man to protect the city. It wasn't considered an honor, it was considered a public service.

Rachel Dawes:
Harvey, the last man who they appointed the Republic was named Caesar and he never gave up his power.

Harvey Dent:
Okay, fine. you either die a hero or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain.

MEMORABLE QUOTES FROM BATMAN - THE DARK KNIGHT RISES

Catwoman to billionaire Bruce Wayne:
There is a storm coming, Mr. Wayne.
You and your friends better batten down the hatches.
Cause when it hits, you're all going to wonder how you ever thought you could live so large and leave so little for the rest of us.
