Online scammers target Singaporeans because we are too trusting

Does Singapore need to become a much colder, unfeeling place in order for the scams to stop? I don’t know. Maybe. Maybe not. What is apparent is these foreign scammers are testing the limits of our kindness, and if we don’t find a way to stop them soon, we’ll just have to get by trusting our fellow human beings a little less everyday.

Should there be space for political dissent and an independent elections commission?

However, is the PAP likely to set up an independent election commission? All its actions show its resentment towards dissent against its rule and desire to suppress alternative political views, even as it pays lip service to being inclusive in governance. It continually criticises and makes things difficult for alternative media. Ministers threaten to sue ordinary citizens into bankruptcy for defamation.
