Sanjay Perera – Need for an intelligentsia, the trolls in social media lacks intelligence


This guy in a few sentences has put himself up as the only intelligent person in this island. Let me quote from his letter in Voices in Today paper 17 Mar 15.
 

‘We must build an intelligentsia here, though they need not be primarily academics. This is more important today, as scholars should be trained to participate in public discussions. We need a new generation to set a standard for discourse based on critical thinking.
 

This is crucial in an age when comments from trolls and online haters that only stir up negativity, rather than promote constructive dialogue or innovative solutions, often pass for intelligence. Singapore is short of thinkers.’
 

In these two paragraphs he was saying that this country did not have an intelligentsia and needs to build one, or if it has, they are incapable of public discourse, and if they do they lack critical thinking. Our scholars were not trained to participate in public discussion? Or there are other reasons for our scholars not to participate?
 

And he concluded that Singapore is short of thinkers, excluding himself of course, and the trolls in social media are passing negative discourse as intelligence and he cannot ‘tahan’. Incidentally, has he ever engaged in a dialogue with the trolls pretending to be intelligent? I don’t think anyone in the social media is pitching unhappiness with govt policies and kpkbs as intelligence. By the way, what is intelligence or otherwise is up to the readers to decide. This intelligent thinker Sanjay Perera has already decided that the trolls in social media are not talking intelligence and so are most of the scholars and Singaporeans.
 

Shall we invite him to grace this blog to share his intelligence with us? Or he sees us no up and would not want to be associated with trolls like us with no intelligence but passing ourselves as intelligent? Does he believe that bloggers are academics trying to show off their intelligence in blogs? Just this point alone speaks a lot about his intelligence. Or shall I tell him bloggers are just engaging in a steam letting exercise and trying to be intelligent is the least important thought in their minds? There are many important issues to gripe about, who got time to act intelligent or want to be seen or perceive as intelligent? Many things were fired from the hips, what measures of intelligence is Sanjay expecting from lunatics in the fringe?
 

What do you think?

Intelligentsia or intelligent or not, troll or not, or what not, but of what use, u tell me lah, if they do not unite and join the Sinkie opposition so that their leader can declare to Sinkies that they are united, strong and ready to replace the PAP as govt?

" ... in an age when comments from trolls and online haters that only stir up negativity, rather than promote constructive dialogue ..."
Sanjay Perera

The minute I saw the word "constructive" or is it "CONstructive"?
- anyway, the word "constructive" is synonymous with papIGS.

- who decides what is "constructive"? It's the paPIGS of course.

- "constructive" towards what purpose? Of course "constructive" towrads the supporting paPIG's ideology of Hard Truths.

To have more fun and excitement lah. Or else Sinkie politics is so boring and predictable, tio bo?

As boring as one anon here who keep saying the Sinkie opposition is not ready to be govt and hence 60% very scared to vote PAP out. Really boring, and tired of it, even if it is 93% true.

Veritas said...

What is an intellect? Do Singapore have them or are our PHDs in institution just cock sucker of PAP, other than Chee Soon Juan.

Does this Sanjay mofos pitch out like Chee against poverty, inequality, FT, newspaper mugging, landlordism, medical cartel, gerrymandering...etc.

Or is he ridiculing those who stick their head out as stupid. Singapore is really lack of intelligensia, and really full of cock sucker like Sanjay.

"There's desire for alternative views, but basically Singaporeans want the PAP to govern Singapore. And if you ask the opposition party, whether it's the Workers' Party or SDP (Singapore Democratic Party), nobody says: 'Vote for me, I will form the Government, I will be the Prime Minister, I will run this place better'. Nobody.
Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said in an interview with Singapore journalists in January 2015

Really boring.

Does he mean writing in grammatically correct English? And does that of itself equate to intelligence?

WOW Singapore's very own "moral philosopher".

Does this asshole even know what year it is? He thinks he's living in the antiquity of the Greco-Roman period---where matters of import were discussed by men (and only men) in forums and colloquiums.

This is Singapore lah. The best philosophy is discussed in kopitiams,and the best social commentary is provided by cab drivers. Social media is merely the current tool which extends the range and amplitude of kopitiam and cab-driver .

And why doesn't anyone have anything good to say about trolls? Trolls play an THE MOST important role: they keep the motherfuckers who take themselves too seriously and wish to force their ideas on others in check.

The latest pice of CLASSIC EPIC TROLLING was perpetrated by person or persons unknown who sent FAKE REPORT of Lee Kuan Yew's death to the international media!

Do you agree that people such as those just mention contribute immeasurable VALUE to the "entertainment" component of the internet?

The PMO, can't take a joke. So they make a police report. Fuck lah, where's your sense of (gallows) humour?

As I've said: The trolls are there to keep those people who take matters too seriously in check.

Funny much?

@ 1137:

>> nice if this Sanjay would start a high level dialogue with Matilah Singapura.

Impossible. All my "dialogue" (if you could call it that) is the lowest of the low level. I like it down and dirty, in the gutter, in the sewer, swimming with the shit of the entire population. Sanjay is much too pristine and "high class"---you know, the "intelligentsia" type. We must kiss his feet and bow to his "intelligence".

>> It would be humour first class.


Yes, it could be (no guarantee) humorous, but it would be extremely vulgar, offensive, vile and ultra-low class. And only one of us will be laughing. And it won't be him ;-)

Breaking news folks... get ready.

Oh also so called Mensa or menstruation member

patriot said...

It is fun to have Matilah Singspura around and it's quite obvious that he is very popular with much interactions with Others.
If only he will visit Lee Kuan Yew Watch Blogspot; we would be able to read his engagements with the Folks there. It shall have the Most Entertaining discussions with Matilah Singapura participating there(Lee Kuan Yew Watch Blogsite which is dedicated to the Foundinh Father Of Sin)

Sanjay Perera, if you are reading this, please enlighten us with your intelligence. You are invited to share with us, the trolls of social media.

Please don't be shy or don't look down on us.

@ agongkia, the experimental scientist:

>> how he would handle a used panty.

1. Sell on Japanese eBay: IQ 160 (Albert Einstein / Stephen Hawking level)

2. Report to police so they can return to owner: IQ 140 (Genius -- can join MENSA)

3. Smell, lick and pah chiew cheng : IQ 100 (normal)

4. Throw away immediately : IQ 20 (certified idiot)

5. Smell, lick, pah chiew cheng then sell on Japanese eBay or report police: > IQ 200

Is Sanjay a number 5? A super-genius?

ME? I'm just an average normal guy. So you can "predict"---with reasonable statistical significance-- what I would do.

@ patriot:

No time lah. I come here EXCLUSIVELY. What's there to watch regarding Lee Kuan Yew? The fucker can't even breathe, eat, shit nor piss normally lah. He has a tube up his arse (aka fecal tube), a catheter in his cock, and a feeding tube up his nose, plus don't know how many wires and intravenous punctures in his flesh.

People often wonder why I have an Advanced Medical Directive, plus 2 close LAWYER friends (not family) who will INSIST the AMD is followed---anticipating "kachau kachau" from family if I am unable to act on my own just before death. This is the (shocking) list of reasons.

Apparently Lee KY has an AMD, but I don't think it was acted on. Frankly I think it is not only illegal, but very cruel. You may like of dislike the guy, but this kind of prolonged suffering (when the eventual outcome is death) is something no one with an AMD should have to endure.

I do feel sorry for him, even though I'm not much of a fan.
