Managed Meritocracy is the way to go

Just like the phrase Guided Democracy, what Singapore needs is Managed Meritocracy and not Meritocrazy as it is being practised. The whole basis of Managed Meritocracy is about country and citizens. The country and citizens must be the main priorities in the practice of meritocracy. It cannot be a blind meritocracy. It cannot be a colourless meritocracy, irrespective of nationalities. It must be a meritocracy with nationality, Singaporeans, sitting on top of the agenda.

An idiotic and mindless meritocrazy that sells out the citizens in favour of foreigners is unacceptable and a betrayal of the citizenry. This point must be foremost in the minds of the leaders. The citizens are the masters of this island and own this place. No one can give their birthrights and privileges to have a good life here to foreigners at their expense.

Any politician that threatens to replace the citizens with foreigners on the ground that the foreigner is ‘better’ than the citizens is standing on weak sand. It cannot be and must not be and must not be allowed to continue. If this kind of argument is the new truth, then it is a matter of time that the whole citizen population would be replaced by foreigners.

What we need is Managed Meritocracy. This is a Meritocracy that places the interest of Singaporeans ahead of foreigners. All things being equal, the Singaporeans must be considered first. Even when things are not equal, especially in top jobs or good jobs, the Singaporeans must still be considered first unless the having of a foreigner is a no choice option, unless the foreigner is going to bring the moon and the stars to put on the table. We know that many foreigners are not able to do so and what they are doing are nothing better than what a citizen can do in their places but still given the jobs. In many cases there is nothing spectacular that the foreigners can do that the Singaporeans cannot do except they looked like our colonial masters or some 3rd world novelties.

For the good of people and nation, Meritocracy must be managed or else it is at best just a dangerous kind of Meritocrazy.

Meritocracy is already managed. It's called TAX. i.e. the more successful you are, the more tax you pay.

The first part is who to give the good jobs and millions to. The second part is how much to take back.

Dun worry lah redbean. These rich fellas always give back -- they just can't help themselves, thanks to rather large EGOS.

They will buy expensive COE open-cat cars ===> TAX

They will buy lots of expensive wines and cigars ==> TAX

They will buy commercial and residential property ===> TAX

Plus they spend more (high consumption) ==> GST TAX. Years ago I did a "survey" amongst my clients. They average $40k-$60K per month in personal expenses. A rough "guessimate" puts that around $4-5k in GST paid monthly. Dun pray pray...

Ego cost money to maintain. Rich people have large egos to drive them, otherwise it is not really possible to be rich.

Off topic: To this date, the BEST scarmongering article regarding China I've come across.

Australia’s biggest threat is China

How to have "managed meritocracy" in Singapore?
Easy lah.
Just vote in more Opposition in GE 2016.

Managing meritocracy in Singapore is all about managing LKY and his PAPigs.

"Australia’s biggest threat is China"

Typical fucking white scare mongering.
The only yellow race that threatened and killed Australians were Japanese in World War Two.
And us Chinese were fighting the Japanese in World War Two.

The Chinese have never invaded anybody in 5,000 years of history.
The yellow races that did were Japanese and Mongolians.

Matilah, took some data from the article you mentioned to post the latest article on the American and western hype about China.

Meritocracy is already managed. If you look around carefully. Ho Ching is Temasek CEO. LKY is in GIC. LHY is ...? They own this little red dot. You think you are the citizens and are the rightful owners but you are their subjects - serfs who are dafts, collecting crumbs and dribbles that trickle down from them and you are supposed to be happy and any opposition from the subjects to their rule is not tolerated.


Saycheese
