Report Singapore- "Intelligent Cities", Industry-specific Ecosystems, in Economics Posted July 15, 2011 and indeed a democracy is what singapore is not. singapore, a city state i'm rather fascinated with, is the best example of pure unfettered fascism in its traditional sense. unlike hong kong which ethnically almost homogeneous and has never been fully sovereign, singapore is the surviving offshoot of british fascism, coupled with chinese master race complex. I am not being provocative here, singapore's ruling family, i mean party, the people's action party, was inspired by the british union of fascists. that said, what is so terribly wrong about it, other than the hypocrisy. singapore is an chinese island of wealth and efficient exploitation in a malay sea of hardship and inefficient exploitation. if it werent for its nationalism and even racism, singapore would be just another part of johor. in that sense, a bit of nationalism is justified for matters of self preservation as in another country I like to compare singapore with, israel. when i look to the four competing chinese national governments, PRc, Taiwan, singapore and hong kong, I see that they are either communists calling themselves democratic in their official names, or fascists appearing democratic oriented to the western world. the only democracy of the four has never been independent and it's certainly less so now. it surely puts things in perspective. here some provocative symbolism obsession http://rexcurry.net/peoples-action-party-pap-singapore-socialism.html You really think they are fascist? I don't think people know how crazy Mussolini's and Hitlers system was. Hong Kong and Singapore rate really high in the economic freedom index. I would call them "Right Wing Nationalists", (As in right wing economically). I would never associate them with those insane Europeans though. Even if they started out as fascists or socialists, its clear that they actually wanted their nation to be great (its weird when they mean it) and they embraced capitalism.
