"Our people should feel free to express diverse views,pursue unconventional ideas or simply be different ... Ours must be an open and inclusive society."
- PM Lee Hsien Loong, speech on 12 Aug 2004
There are many diverse and different ways one can praise the PAP govt and the PAP govt is kind enough to accept it in any form. I've always loved those Jack Neo movies. The theme is always consistent, while the going may be tough and there is pain & hurt, it is ultimately for our own good....no wonder he received a National Day award last year. Mr. Brown poke fun at the govt policies, Jack Neo poke fun at the govt policies. Mr. Brown offers no solutions and alternatives, Jack Neo offers no solutions or alternatives So how come one person get honoured and the other suspended? .....The difference is in the ending, in every single Jack Neo movie the ending is always happy and everyone smiles at the end. Mr. Brown's articles conclude in cynicism and despondency, everyone is unhappy at the end. The PAP wants everything to have a happy ending.
