It is the mantra of the day to talk about meritocracy, to embrace meritocracy, to spew meritocracy at every opportunity like the words of God. Every idiot, half baked politicians and grassloot leaders are also bragging about this word that it has taken the form of a 4 letter word.
Meritocracy cannot be blindly applied to a country of people without qualifications. I have quoted an old speech by LKY, the consummate political master of all time, about foreigners and citizens. Foreigners, the expatriates, the good and talented ones, are needed to help us to grow. But ultimately this country belongs to the Singaporeans and Singaporeans must be in charge, to learn all they could, to eventually replace the foreigners. There is this thing called nationhood and citizenship.
A country exists for its citizens, for the good of its citizens. No country exists for foreigners, for non citizens. Every asshole today is talking about getting the best talent to replace the citizens. As long as there is a better talented foreigner, there is no qualms to replace the citizen even in top jobs. If this is the thinking of half baked politicians and employers, all the top jobs in the island would eventually be filled by foreigners. This is an inevitable truth. With 6b people out there, there is no short supply of foreign talents that are way better than our local talents. We can start with replacing every academic and lecturers in the universities, followed by the civil service and then the politicians.
With this policy of meritocracy in place, without exceptions, the first thing to happen would be like a blood transfusion. All the locals would be replaced by foreign talents in top jobs, by more talented foreigners. And the next step would be to get rid of all the citizens that are jobless, a burden to society, tell them to go elsewhere. For the good of Singapore, for the growth and prosperity of Singapore, there is no need for not so talented citizens. The daft ones would not stand a chance. Only the best in the whole world should be recruited to ensure the prosperity of this island. No emotions, no sentiments, no nationalism. Only the best need to be to here, deserve to be here for the good of Singapore the city state, not Singaporeans.
If this is not treason, getting rid of Singaporeans and replacing them with foreigners unconditionally except on merit, what else is treason? Undiluted and unconditional meritocracy in its purest form for anyone? Before you say yes, please be sure that you are not an idiot, that your talent is superior to the rest of the world, or you are unfit to be here. And half baked politicians thinking too highly of themselves, that they are the best in the world and deserve to be here ‘kee chiu’. For the unthinking grassloot leaders, please you are definitely unfit if meritocracy is the condition for your existence and right to be here. Your turn is not up yet but will be soon. Pure meritocracy is merciless, like the law of the jungle where the fittest survive. How many of you idiots out there pretending to be the best would survive under such a law?
The master politician did not believe in unconditional meritocracy? Only crazy and dim witted politicians that failed to learn from the master would go around chirping meritocracy like crazy. They need to be put away in IMH. Singapore must be for Singaporeans. Period.
