Singapore eases up on social engineering
Since Singapore is turning 40, it hasn't gone quite unnoticed. Basically the articles about this event go along the line of "Singaporeans are freer now but still oppressed!". Such as this article from the Associated Press. Yes, it's amazing. "Singaporeans are even being allowed to bungee-jump and dance on bar tables," which makes us sound like some breed of guinea pig just granted additional benefits in our cage. Well, the article does get a lot of stuff right. Lets hope for more easing up. As for political reform, the outlook is definitely still glacial.
