PAP’s logical thinking of Singapore voters: No Change


There will be no change and voters will accept the People’s Action Party 4G leaders. This is the logical thinking of the PAP despite internal and external challenges.

The Logical Song was a popular song in the 1980s. Even nearly 40 years after the release of The Logical Song it is still relevant to Singapore. The world has made many changes since then except the evergreen PAP. Why? Are we untouchables?  

- Since we cannot achieve Swiss standard of living, we have no demand for the meaning of life.
- As we cannot afford the high cost of medical/living, we apply for CHAS cards.
- Since we cannot withdraw CPF earlier or don’t have enough CPF, we need to continue working.
- Throughout our education and the PAP propaganda, do we really ask the question: who I am?
    
The Logical Song was written primarily by Roger Hodgson and it was his life experience.

[Hodgson has said of the song’s meaning: "'The Logical Song' was born from my questions about what really matters in life. Throughout childhood we are taught all these ways to be and yet we are rarely told anything about our true self. We are taught how to function outwardly, but not guided to who we are inwardly. We go from the innocence and wonder of childhood to the confusion of adolescence that often ends in the cynicism and disillusionment of adulthood. In 'The Logical Song,' the burning question that came down to its rawest place was 'please tell me who I am,' and that's basically what the song is about. I think this eternal question continues to hit such a deep chord in people around the world and why it stays so meaningful."

The PAP logically assumes that their 4G leaders will take over Singapore as planned like the passing down of Goh Chok Tong and Lee Hsien Loong. This is because Singapore voters never consider “please tell me who I am’.  
Will GE2019 be a difference? Will voters ask who am I? And Why? Why do we need to continue to vote for a party that makes us ending in cynicism and disillusionment?



The Logical Song
When I was young, it seemed that life was so wonderful
A miracle, oh it was beautiful, magical
And all the birds in the trees, well they'd be singing so happily
Oh joyfully, playfully watching me
But then they send me away to teach me how to be sensible
Logical, oh responsible, practical
And they showed me a world where I could be so dependable
Oh clinical, oh intellectual, cynical
There are times when all the world's asleep
The questions run too deep
For such a simple man
Won't you please, please tell me what we've learned
I know it sounds absurd
Please tell me who I am
I said, watch what you say or they'll be calling you a radical
Liberal, oh fanatical, criminal
Won't you sign up your name, we'd like to feel you're Acceptable
Respectable, oh…
