Illegal to Make Others Unhappy in Singapore!!!

You every wonder why Singaporeans are so happy? How does the govt of Singapore use very innovative approaches to make sure unhappiness does not spread in Singapore? If unhappiness is a disease, our govt is the cure. A very powerful cure indeed, everyday I slowly appreciate our leaders more. ...and you should too. You ever wonder why our newspapers containly only happy, inspiring stories....nothing upsetting except stories on other countries? .......The ANSWER?

The Anti-Sedition Act, of course. You can be jailed 3 years or fined if you violate it.
What is sedition?
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Seditious tendency.3. —(1) A seditious tendency is a tendency
(a) to bring into hatred or contempt or to excite disaffection against the Government;

(b) to excite the citizens of Singapore or the residents in Singapore to attempt to procure in
Singapore, the alteration, otherwise than by lawful means, of any matter as by law established;

(c) to bring into hatred or contempt or to excite disaffection against the administration of justice in Singapore;

(d) to raise discontent or disaffection amongst the citizens of Singapore or the residents in Singapore;

(e) to promote feelings of ill-will and hostility between different races or classes of the population of Singapore.

-----------------------------------------------------------
(a) means we cannot criticise the govt or point out its mistakes.
(b) means we cannot "excite" Singaporeans and have to leave them in their vegetable state.
(c) means we cannot criticise the courts.
(d) means we cannot in anyway upset Singaporeans and make them unhappy. That is why our reporteralways write nice stories.
(e) means we cannot highlight issues of the underprivilege and poor because it will 'promote' ill-will and hostility.

Wow! The Anti-Sedition Act is one heck of a legislation!
