Spore is very SPECIAL. It’s run by special people who command the world’s highest salaries despite having no previous relevant experience (most are recruits from the military who have not had a real job in their lives), an education system that is so special it relies on model answers and rote learning, and a very special population conditioned / brain washed to do things in a set way… from young. A country so special that high costs are seen as a sign of progress, that retirees can’t be trusted with their own money. A country so special that the government has to get involved in small and large businesses such that everybody has to either work for the govt or in GLCs or in pte businesses which rely on govt contracts. A people so special that they allow the govt to control every aspect of their lives. Spore is a special country moving from 1st world to 4th, while most other countries are moving from 3rd to 1st. I suppose sporeans know best what’s good for them, for they are special.
