Recently I decided to be a part of TOC by being one of their writers. I thought this would be a great avenue or platform to do my part in being a NERVE in our country.
I strongly believe TOC has the potential to be a credible and qualified representative for Singaporeans from the ground up. Hopefully TOC would eventually, one day be recognised by our government as a partner in policy-making decisions towards re-making our country a better home for Singaporeans to live, work, play and grow old.
After casual exchanges with friends over some local socio-political issues, I have to say that generally, majority of us Singaporeans take a very passive if not an apathetic approach when it comes to Singapore socio-political issues.
I think this can be largely due to us Singaporeans ‘taking for granted’ the strong leadership and efficiency of our government.
Personally, I think this is not very healthy for us as a country and has to be addressed as it might pose a grave danger for all of us.
