Open or Close civil disobedience in Singapore
If the court verdict is any lesser than pronounced it will caused a tsunami shock to Singaporean who are used to any opposition to Singapore PAP government preferred conformist behaviour will be penalised. 😉
This however isn’t the real major social issue.
The real issue are the motivating factors for civil disobedience by masses like in Hong Kong, Paris, UK, Spain, South Korea, Thailand, Myanmar and numerous affected countries.
It is simple, the masses are heavily burdened by the state failure to allocate equitable distribution of income leading to huge and widespread income disparity, many unconscionable and unreasonable direct and indirect taxes shouldering the state expensive and even seen wasteful expenditure like the useless 1 billion national stadium expensive trash centre, expensive faucets for public facilities etc whilst the masses lives in poverty unable to put food on the table. Further, other despicable policies that deprive citizens ownership of their own fund especially when needed for medical expenses, combine with government supported predatory foreigners eating lunch of local natives, and the arrogance of elitist earning millions in the name of serving people with clueless long term planning.
These ain’t all the factors.
But the point is civil disobedience doesn’t arise from youth and people because they are bored and have nothing else better to do.
Understanding the causes tell us if that was Jolovan true intention or not, that is the opening signal that Singapore social “disorder” and “chaos” is already present.
People are predicting PAP government will either lose their mandate to government or a major loss of seats to opposition parties like PSP PV SDP WP.
Is this then the open underground mass civil disobedience ongoing from the last General elections where PAP failed to live up to their promises. Essentially, people are expressing they had enough of PAP government and Singapore rejuvenation and renewal can only happened with new and not so new political leaders from the opposition parties.
