YOUR POLICIES WRECKED LIVES. YOUR POLICIES DESTROYED A FAMILY.
YOUR POLICIES MADE LIFE MEANINGLESS AND IRRELEVANT FOR IAN AND FAMILY.
YOUR POLICIES ARE AN ABOMINATION OF HYPOCRISY!
 

Behaviour is the mirror in which everyone shows their image - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
 

Expressions of hypocrisy, ignorance, slackness, arrogance, indifference, impertinence, inhumanity, barbarity, stupidity, laziness, incompetence,  carelessness, complacency, irresponsibility, corruption, negligence,  weakness, snobbishness, cowardly behaviour and attitudes are an alarmingly increasing trend in all the relevant ministries we have encountered since 2012.
 

These shortfalls are risky, reckless, dangerous and disastrous when prominent in places of authority and have grave repercussions.
 

I would like to draw your attention to the issues concerning our disastrous, haphazard policies in our various government institutions  (MOE, MINDEF, SCDF, CPF, MINLAW, SPS, DRC, IMH,TTSH,MSF) that places public welfare at risk and endanger lives.


Communication with people in these ministries are extremely agonizing and is almost impossible. Tele-conversation is not an option, we were asked to write in, when we wrote in, most of the vital questions and  cries for help were left unanswered, ignored or brushed aside by an automated copied and pasted reply.
 

It never fails to baffle me how the human beings heading and working from the highest to the lowest positions in these ministries are shockingly lacking in basic innate instincts.
 

We see monstrous beings lacking the intuitive faculty of hearing,  feeling, acting, thinking, touching, seeing and the ability to use  common sense.


 A family’s life is on the line and yet none could hear and see, think and act, feel and be touched by Ian and family wailing in pain and  despair a hundred thousand times throughout these long agonizing 7  years.
 

This is the most morally loathsome approach used by our system to terrorize the population. Civil servants should be approachable, have a  steadfast character and a willingness to serve.
 

This utter fiasco will be brought out into the open so that we can have a  mature discussion to understand why these core systems failed and how we can reach for the grain of truth within the ambiguity of these  set-ups.
 

I would like to engage the nation with this discussion and will initiate  by sending you some of my emails to SCDF, CPF, Chief-Of-Police, Mr Soh  Wai Wah (2015), Deputy Prime Minister, Mr Teo Chee Hean (2015),  Chief-Of-SCDF, Mr Eric Yap, Minister of Defence, Mr Ng Eng Heng, Law Minister, Mr Shanmugan, my MP, Dr Teo Ho Pin and your good-self.
 

Everyone has the right to take part in the government of his/her country.


 A truthful discussion will foster relationships and bring people together to make amends, the outcome must clearly serve all involved, an  inclusive movement with every man, woman and child, in mind. We can  then move forward as a nation. When we place ourselves in a position to help another we will discover our greater capabilities.


Outwardly we may have progressed from the bullock cart to the jet plane but within the psyche of most people here, especially those working in the government sector, we are primitive, ignorant, cowardly and  barbaric.
 

The meaning of one thing can only be understood in relation to what stands next to and influences it. For your easy reference, please find  below snapshots of events leading to this letter. Let’s take a look at  the various stages of decay and collapsed in these core industries. Starting with the foundation, Education.
 

MINISTRY OF EDUCATION

 We do not have a single educational Institution in Singapore!

 Trade schools are largely for those who are uneducable in other ways, with extremely limited talents, or limited means available for education. Our so-called education, higher education are only over-glorified trade schools. These are not educational institutions.  Our education is solely to permit the individual to have a career. One is not attending a university but a training school. The primary function of the trade school is to teach the individual to have a career  in whatever area he/she wants.
 

Today these trade institutions have only one sole complete purpose, to carefully foster the production of a 50K a year person, 300k a year  person and if one takes 2 postgraduate courses to get one’s doctorate,  he/she is probably good for a million a year with some luck.


By conspiracy, the government departments, banking and businesses must  select “university” graduates for all of its best jobs. Regardless of the fact that some of these “university” men/women cannot read and  write. Many of them cannot speak or spell.
 

The principle purpose of education is to create a thinker, a human being capable of managing one’s own life wisely, honourably and achieving a rich and purposeful personal existence.


Education must be geared to the perpetuation of the value of society, and not merely the continual emphasis upon the individual making hay while he/she is here.


In early school life, a child must be taught good and bad, respect and  honour, patience and self-discipline, certain measures of integrity, as  integrity fortify character so that the child’s nature remains  incorruptible, even before he/she can read and write.
 

The child must learn that education is a way of unfolding one’s own nature and character, that education is absolutely worthless if it helps  one make a million dollars but does not teach him/her how to become a  conscious, conscientious, kind, responsible, considerate, reasonable, fair, righteous, honourable, balanced and a well-adjusted human being.
 

The child must know that materialistic culture is bound to fail, that  one cannot hope to create an educated world, where education is pointed  only at the accumulation of wealth. No one has the possibility of  maintaining it, since no one can behave ethically, whose ideal is not  higher than daily profit and loss.


 If the child does not know this before primary three, this child is not educated, it doesn’t matter what one knows or how high one’s IQ is. If  the child does not know these things, he/she will become in due time,  the parent of wars, the parent of moral corruption of the people, of  moral disasters, of more prison camps.
 

Every child entering school along with the salute to the flag should  have a clear concept of why it is important for one to do, what one is  going to learn to do, and how this accomplishment, will inevitably  contribute to the collective security of one’s creation, without harming oneself, others and the environment.


Education should definitely include the conservation of resources. We need every child to realize the responsibility of use and misuse. That  everything we use are taken from our planet’s limited natural resources.  Think in terms of production for use, instead of production for profit. 


 There will be a reasonable profit if we are intelligent but there will  no longer be this mad urge to quadruple or quintuple profit in the first  year of business.
 

Economy of resources and preventive medicine (food and herbal therapy)  should be major important subjects in primary school. Instead of the  many useless subjects designed to clutter the person’s entire mind  without space left for spontaneity, creativity, beauty, culture, art and living.


In other words, the young person should know before one starts to  learn, that if one succeeds and becomes an outstanding person, one is  going to be a benevolent force in the way of life and one is not, under  any conditions going to succeed, at the expense of another or advance  his/her own course by preventing the normal advancement of other people. 


 One will not regard oneself as successful, merely because one has more  than other people nor will one thinks in legislation, in working, in learning, primarily of profit.
 

ONE WILL THINK OF THE REASONS FOR THE EXISTENCE OF ONE’S PEOPLE, ONE’S NATION, ONE’S WORLD AND ONESELF.
 

Learning is not merely memorizing what is known. Learning now is to  anticipate the unknown. Learning is to be able to adjust oneself to a  situation in which tomorrow will have no valid relationship with today,  so far as consistency is concerned.


 It’s a fact today that in the highly technical department of learning, a  person who graduated a year ago will have difficulties starting again,  at the beginning of that system of education and graduating again.
 Learning today is a series of perpetual adjustments of being eternally contemporary.


The essential purpose of education is to create a person who can safely  live tomorrow. Up to now, education is built upon remembering formulas, is build upon the process of becoming informed of what other people  know.


This is necessary for certain professions. Broadly speaking this has  been overemphasized and the result has been a terrible loss in the  production of thinkers.
 

We are in such a rapid transition that the whole structure of learning has lost nearly all of its authorism. It is assumed that tomorrow is  merely the extension of today. This was once true, now, however,  tomorrow may be the complete contradiction of today. We can no longer  quote Darwin, Newton or Einstein with finality.


 We are now, not able to quote that which has appeared in the journal that was published in the morning because the afternoon edition may take  it back.
 

The individual who is educated must not only be educated to get along in  the uneasy peace (fear engendered environment) that we now experience,  the person must be equipped to meet the challenges of a complete  catastrophe if it should occur.
 

Progress is not a headlong dash. Progress has nothing to do with who gets to the moon first. Progress has nothing to do with who owns the  most expensive warplane. Progress is not who has the highest skyscraper,  fastest computer, tallest indoor waterfall in an entertainment and retail complex. Progress is not being reigned as one of the most  expensive cities in the world with the largest glass greenhouse.

 

These  things are exciting, interesting and remarkable but what can they do to  reduce the price of bread? It’s a luxury we can enjoy in the realm of  real progress and we do them graciously, pleasantly and have lots of fun  with it, instead of throwing the country into bankruptcy in a wild dash  for these ends.


Inevitably creating poverty, scarcity, locking up our CPF funds, working  our elderly to death and depriving our homeless a roof over their  heads. In the realm of real progress, our mental hospitals, hospitals,  clinics, prisons, drug rehabilitation centres, mortuaries are relatively free of customers.
 

Profit of business is the waste of the world. Competition is regarded as  the life of trade. It is not the life of anything. It is a destroyer of  everything that is important in human nature. Money is probably the  primary root of the other evils.


Money or profit of some kind, wealth, is probably the dominating motivation behind stupidity and crime.

Crime is increasing, use of narcotics is increasing, diseases are  increasing, suicides are sky-rocketing, the number of homeless is  increasing, all the things we do not want we are getting more of.

TLDR ....  :-[
