Post Election, many organisations have tried to sustain the election awareness though forums and discussion platforms. Most of these efforts cannot sustain over time because people’s interest in politics in the past, were highlighted only during election periods. This series was developed to sustain people’s interest and discuss key issues felt by Singaporeans.
In the first series, Leong talked about HDB. Jee Say spoke about Foreign Workers. In the second series, we would be discussing
1) Stress, Success and Quality of life – Dr. Ang Yong Guan
For years the over-dominance of the PAP has led to learned helplessness of the citizens; thus leading to dearth of creativity, kiasuism, obsession with narrow definition of success (usually measured in material terms), high suicide amongst the young, low fertility rate and poor quality of life. With the recent awakening following the GE 2011 and a change of ministers in 11 ministries who must now review all policies from scratch, the psychological impact of old and new policies must be explored. This psychological fine-tuning is highly lacking in the present PAP-controlled environment which emphasizes material success at the expense of mental well-being.
