This will encourage more severe anti-social behaviour to take place in society.
Dear New Nation,
Singapore is celebrating her 50th anniversary this year.
However, far from progressing and becoming a world class country, what we are experiencing is a deterioration of civic values.
This is after People’s Action Party (PAP) activists in Aljunied GRC, Hougang and Punggol East went door-to-door earlier this month to hand out fliers on the pretext of highlighting problems at the Workers’ Party-run town council as they are, in fact, throwing rubbish outside people’s house.
It has just been reported that even though this matter of mass littering had been reported to the police, nothing is going to be done about it.
Therefore, the mass littering and degradation of society’s values is going to be state-assisted because the PAP litterbugs are given a free pass to do as they please and this will cause Singaporeans from all walks of life from the whole political spectrum to follow suit.
So, what is wrong, you may ask?
Well, allowing the mass littering of dirty materials, such as fliers, is just the start of the unravelling of society as we know it.
At first, we allow people to freely put rubbish outside one another’s door.
Next, this will embolden the perpetrators of rubbish-throwing to cause more severe forms of anti-social and uncivic-minded behaviour like molest and murder to take place.
After which, it will cause the pillage and rape of entire communities and estates in Singapore.
In no time, Singapore will revert back to the days in the 1960s where riots were a way of life and people got by through means of sheer cunning, like exploiting the weak and the vulnerable, while preying on the unawares.
I seriously urge the authorities to re-look the legality of this issue of allowing PAP activists to go around leaving rubbish outside people’s doors while the people inside the house sleeps.
I want to live in a society where I can see activists from both sides clash openly rather than engage in some clandestine operation.
Because what is this? Election period already?
Can we save the clashes till then? Please?
General Election Otaku
Giving out fliers in the dead of night is really littering:
