Zhou Yongkang helping us with social challenges?
Look at his abridged resume in wikipedia and compare it with what Teo Chee Hean said.
SINGAPORE and China can learn from each other in dealing with common social challenges such as widening income gaps and ageing populations, Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean said yesterday.
What does he know about widening income gap unless it had gone so far to be threaten social stability like he had to deal with. What does Zhou know about ageing issues?
I imagine anything our government can pick up from the Chinese is inimical to our freedoms. Perhaps this government want to learn from their experience and obtain any technology they might have developed to more closely monitor and control us. If we don't see any Chinese methods used on us then it could be held in reserve as Plan B? When we are in a deep social crisis and courage fled our leaders; when courage dies, faith evaporates and only fear is left; Plan B will be rolled out.
Post 1989 China learned from us to invest in anti-riot principles. Today they have surpassed us. Fast forward 2012 it is anyone guess what we are picking up from them. I can't figure what they can learn from us managing "social challenges" when they would love the docility of our society: no problem at all!
How they rue and wish Hong Kong society is more like ours.
