Why elitism is bad for Singapore
October 31, 2011
There are no elites in the true sense of the word – if there is such thing as elitism, then it lies in only a select few who are trying to sell the masses that idea.
What about the Kennedy’s Darkness, they seem to be natural politicians, natural leaders even. Aren’t they elites?
Well they are also very good at attracting bullets and for some reason flying into the sea – so if you define elitism as cultivating the habit of dying an unnatural death, then they have to be elites, I guess Eva. The sooner we all realize what really makes up the innards of this mumbo jumbo, then better it will be for everyone – for one we wouldn’t just leave everything in the hands of a few – neither would we trust them completely, that in my view is not such a bad thing. The reverse side of the coin is simply this Eva, if we buy into the idea that there is such a thing as the cult of infallibility. Then dont be surprised one day, if you leave everything from rubbish disposal to how to raise your kids to these people; that would be well and fine, if the lines were drawn and set just there – the real problem is when you buy into that idea for even a tiny weeney bit; then don’t be surprised one fine day when you even need to raise your hands for a toilet break.
