“Singapore is small and vulnerable. We have no natural resources”
Because we have been sold this narrative of small and vulnerable our whole lives, we are all individually and collectively constantly in panic mode.

The idea that Singapore cannot afford to have the messiness of democracy that you see elsewhere. Is that true?
This is the third in a series of four GE2020 videos:

4. ” If I vote for the opposition, will I lose my job? Will Singapore collapse?” (Soon)
