Vote out 21 politicians and transform Singapore

RH: "There are only 21 Cabinet Ministers. If they are all kicked out at the next election, do you really think our citystate will grind to a halt or collapse?

That our schools will stop teaching; our markets stop selling fish; the HDB stop accepting your applications for flats; the police stop catching thieves?

Truth is, the political office holders are the MOST DISPENSABLE people in the country. Of the entire civil service and govt machinery, they do the least work because they are usually the least qualified, unlike lawyers for the legal services, doctors for the medical services, professors for the university courses, etc.

Politicians do nothing except play politics to stay in power. That is all they do and they do it very well, which is why many Singaporeans think they are indispensable.

Vote them out and give our citystate the first real opportunity for change in 50 years.

Then and only then will HDB prices come down to sane levels, NS reduced to 6 months to a year, our CPF accounts start getting real interest and grow big enough for our old age and medical needs, education more creative instead of rote-learning, the huge influx of foreigners slowed, the free scholarships to foreigners depriving our children of places in tertiary institutions -- in short, all the good things that the current 21 politicians refuse to even consider let alone bother to change.

Hongkong never had a LIE KY nor our 21 politicians and look at them! What HK can do we can, too, once these 21 politicians are kicked out.

It is time to vote them out, like so many countries are voting out long-ruling parties.

Vote them out! You will find that our citystate will continue business as usual without skipping a beat.

In months, you will wonder why you ever held these 21 politicians in thrall at all."

* 21-member Cabinet [see Cabinet]
* Wikipedia's page lists five senior ministers of state, four ministers of state, four senior parliamentary secretaries and two parliamentary secretaries
* So the ministers, ministers of state and parliamentary secretaries number 36 in all.

Write simple English for computer translations

ORIGINAL ENGLISH TEXT:

How to write in English for Google translations into other languages:

1. Write in short, simple and direct sentences. Do not try to write clauses or long phrases that have to be separated by many commas -- or worse, by other punctuation marks. If you write very short sentences, these will be translated accurately into other languages.

2. Write your sentences in the Direct Form. For example, you should write "I want to eat dinner now." Do not write indirectly like "Dinner will be much appreciated now." Indirect sentences are difficult for the computer to translate.

3. Do not invent new words or use an ordinary word in a new or unusual way. These new or unusual words cannot be translated.

4. Try to write in short, numbered paragraphs like my example here. This method makes it easier for you to write in short, simple and direct sentences. If your topic is on "sentences", keep using the same word "sentences". Do not try to vary your words by using similes or other variations of the word "sentences". This method makes it easier for the computer to translate more accurately.

5. Do not use metaphors. These are difficult to translate. [Did you notice that I used the word "difficult" instead of the word "hard" because the word "hard" has several meanings?]. Try to use words that have only one meaning. Try not to use words that have several meanings. Try not to use analogies or even similes. These are often translated wrongly.

6. After you have finished writing your text in English, translate this English text into the foreign language. Then translate this foreign language text back into English. This method lets you estimate if your original English text is clearly written. However, translating the text twice results in worse quality than if you translate the text only once. If you estimate that your original text is not clearly written, you can rewrite your English text and check again. Single words and short phrases are translated more accurately than long sentences. Try it and I wish you Good Luck!


//////////

ENGLISH TO JAPANESE TRANSLATION:

どのように英語で他の言語に Google翻訳を書くこと:

1。文章を、簡単な短いと直接にお書きください。句または、多くのカンマで区切られたする必要がある、長いフレーズを作成しようとしないでください - か悪いかは、他の句読点で。場合、非常に短い文章を書く、これらを正確に他の言語に翻訳されます。

2。直接フォームにあなたの文章をお書きください。たとえば、"私は今夕食を食べにしたい書く必要があります。"間接的な"ディナーもすぐに高く評価される記述しないでください。"間接的な文章は、コンピュータに変換することは困難です。

3。新しい言葉を発明しないか、または新しいまたは異常な方法で、普通の単語を使用します。これらの新しい、または異常な言葉に翻訳することはできません。

4。短期的に書き込みをしてください私の例はここのような段落番号。このメソッドは、簡単にあなたの文章、シンプルな短いと直接に書き込むことができます。あなたのトピックの"文"に、"文"は、同じ単語を使い続けている。直喩または単語の他のバリエーション"の文を使用して、自分の言葉によって"をしないでください。このメソッドになりますが簡単にコンピュータをより正確に変換します。

5。比喩を使用しないでください。これらの翻訳することは困難です。 [あなたのための単語"ハード"、いくつかの意味が、私は"という言葉を"難しい"の代わりに単語を"ハード使用されますかに気づいた。 1つだけの意味を持つ言葉を使ってみてください。は、いくつかの意味を持つ単語を使用しないようにしてください。類似あるいは直喩を使用しないようにしてください。これらはしばしば誤って変換されます。

6。後に英語で文章を書いて、外国の言語には、この英語のテキストの翻訳が終了している。再度英語には、この外国語のテキストに変換します。このメソッドは、あなたのオリジナルの英語のテキストを明確に書かれている場合を推定することができます。しかし、以上の場合は1回だけテキストを翻訳するの2倍悪い品質の結果は、テキストの翻訳。使用する場合は、元のテキストを明確に、あなたの英語のテキストを書き換えることができますし、再度チェック書かれていないと推測される。 1つの単語や短いフレーズをより正確に長い文章が翻訳されます。それ試してみて私は幸運を祈る!

//////////


JAPANESE TO ENGLISH BACK-TRANSLATION FROM ABOVE JAPANESE TRANSLATION. [WILL INCLUDE DOUBLE TRANSLATION DOUBLE ERRORS, SO NOT AS ACCURATE AS THE FIRST TRANSLATION]

Other languages in English how to write a Google translation:

1. Sentence, please describe a simple and direct short. Or phrase, there is much to be separated by a comma, please do not try to create a longer phrase - or worse, the other punctuation. If you write very short sentences will be translated into other languages are accurate.

Two. Please Write your text directly to the form. For example, "I must write you want to eat dinner now." Indirect "Please do not write too soon to be acclaimed dinner." Indirect sentences, it is difficult to convert to your computer.

Three. Do not invent a new language, or new or unusual ways to use common words. These new or unusual words that can not be translated.

Four. Please write me an example of the short term, such as a paragraph number here. This method is simple sentence you can write a short simple and direct. Your topic "sentence", the "sentence" is continuing to use the same word. Simile or other variations of the word "to use the statement, by his words," Please do not. More accurately converts your computer is easy with this method.

Five. Please do not use a metaphor. These are difficult to translate. [Word for you "hard", meaning some, I said, "the word" difficult "words in place of" hard-noticed or used. Please try using the words that have only one meaning. Please do not use the word with several meanings. Please do not use a simile or similar. These are often incorrectly converted.

Six. After writing a sentence in English, foreign language, which ends this English translation of the text. In English again, and then convert the text in this language. This method can estimate if it is clearly written in your original English text. However, if more than one text to be translated only once, two times the result of poor quality, the translation of the text. If you use clear, original, and you can rewrite your English text, presumably written not check again. One long sentence is correctly translated from one word or short phrase. I try it good luck!

//////////

ENGLISH TO MANDARIN SO YOU CAN SEE THE BETTER ACCURACY IF TRANSLATED ONLY ONCE:

如何书写英文的谷歌成其他语言的翻译:

1。写在简短,简单和直接的句子。不要试图写入条文,或已经受到许多逗号分隔长的词组 - 或更糟,其他标点符号。如果你写很短的句子,这些将被翻译成其他语言准确。

2。写在你的句子直接形式。例如,你应该写上“我想现在吃晚饭。”不写间接像“晚餐会非常感谢了。”间接句子难以计算机翻译。

3。不发明新的词语或使用新的或不同寻常的方式一般字。这些新的或不寻常的话无法翻译。

4。尝试写短,就像是我的例子段落。这种方法使您更容易写短,简单和直接的句子。如果你的主题是“句子”,继续使用同一个词“服刑”。不要试图通过使用不同喻或其他变体字“句子你的话”。这种方法使计算机更容易更准确地翻译。

5。不要使用隐喻。这些都是难以翻译。 [你看到我用“困难”一词,而不是“硬”字,因为 “硬”有几个含义?]。尝试使用的单词只有一个含义。尽量不要使用有多个词的含义。尽量不要使用类比,甚至明喻。这些往往是翻译错误。

6。在您写完您的英文文本,翻译成外语这个英文文本。然后,这个外语翻译文本回到英国。此方法允许您估计如果你的英文原文是写得清清楚楚。然而,两次翻译文本的质量更差的结果比如果您翻译文本只有一次。如果您要估算您的原始文本不是清楚写着,你可以重写你的英文文本,并再次检查。单个词和短语的翻译更准确比长句子。尝试它,我祝你好运!

Idea: Drive-on Flashing Red system

video

Also on YouTube for fullscreen:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZVbDYHSeCLI

RH:
1. Having commuted by bus most of my younger life, then also by metro trains when these were built, and lastly driving my wife's car in recent years, I have most of the usual experiences of a pedestrian and a driver.

2. As a pedestrian, I appreciate the pedestrian-push-button-controlled Traffic Light Controlled Pedestrian Crossings. As a driver, I am annoyed when I have to stop at one of these when there's nobody crossing; or when someone crosses in just a few seconds but I have to wait out the entire Red Light, until it turns Green.

3. In the video above, I have captured a scene when nobody's crossing at the Traffic Light Controlled Pedestrian Crossing just below my flat. I spent only half an hour and got several examples of which this is the best -- or worst. When vehicles waited out the entire ~20sec or so but nobody was crossing. It seems to me that this is stupid. Surely, there must be a better way? Here is one attempt.

4. Paramount is safety of the pedestrians. It is easy to make a rule overnight, to let vehicles stopped at a Traffic Light Controlled Pedestrian Crossing, to drive on when nobody's crossing, or when all the pedestrians have already crossed -- even if the traffic light still remains red. But this could be dangerous.

5. Suppose we do just that: change the rule so that vehicles can drive on through the red light if they see that nobody's crossing or everybody has crossed safely. After all, there are precedents: at Bukit Batok West Ave 3 is a LEFT TURN ON RED sign at the T-junction that allows vehicles to turn left even when the traffic light shows red. However, this is not dangerous because this driving through a red light is only for vehicles approching from the long end of the T and only for the Left Turn [cannot drive through the horizontal bar of the T, so vehicles have to slow for the turn anyway, so quite safe to turn left after having checked that no vehicles are approaching from the right]. A pedestrian crossing like the one discussed is along a straight road, so approach speeds of vehicles will be much higher than slowing for a Left Turn On Red junction. This means that if the rule is changed to allow vehicles to drive on through the red light, drivers will tend not to stop and drive through fast. Besides being dangerous to allow drivers the habit to drive through red lights, there could be situations when a pedestrian may somehow not be seen by the approaching driver and he/she steps onto the crossing when the driver, not seeing the pedestrian, speeds through without stopping. Fatal accidents can happen. This is very possible since the pedestrian will have seen the Green Walking Man light up for him to cross, so may not check for oncoming traffic, while the driver, also thinking he has the right to drive on through the red light, may not see the pedestrian, with tragic results.

6. One way is to retain the injunction to stop at Red Lights. This will avoid drivers developing a bad habit of driving [legally] through red lights. However, we still need to let drivers who have already stopped at the Traffic Light Controlled Pedestrian Crossing to drive on when nobody's crossing or everybody has crossed safely, otherwise the stupid scenario in my video will continue to happen. We can do this by letting drivers drive on when the Red Light begins FLASHING, indicating "Proceed if safe" mode. It is easy to change a circuit board controller to make the red light come on as usual, then after, say, 3 sec, start flashing. This red light of 3 sec followed by the usual length of 'crossing time' [~20sec in my video] will force vehicles to stop on seeing the red or flashing red light, but after the 3sec or so, may drive on when the Flashing Red Light begins, provided of course, nobody is crossing or everybody has crossed safely.

7. All that remains is to ensure that all vehicles MUST stop on seeing the Red Light or Flashing Red light at the Traffic Light Controlled Pedestrian Crossing. After vehicles have stopped, they may drive on DURING THE FLASHING RED ONLY [about 3sec after the Red Light] provided it is safe to do so. This will require mass media announcements, immediate inclusion of this new feature in all the Traffic Rules books or Highway Code books, questions in Highway Code written and oral tests, websites, letters to all driving licence holders, posters at all car showrooms and bus interchanges, etc. If the success of the Left Turn On Red signs are indicative, this new sign should be equally successful. I have encountered now and then, at the Left Turn On Red sign at Bukit Batok West Ave 3, some vehicles which stopped, not knowing they could turn Left on red, but some honking from behind quickly educated them. Make the new signs big and readable from afar as part of the education process. There should be no major problems.

8. This new system not only conveniences drivers and results in higher average speeds throughout the islet, but by so doing, allow even more such Traffic Light Controlled Pedestrian Crossings to be set up thus conveniencing pedestrians as well. Thus, pedestrians will also gain from this new system. So, win-win for all. Proposed sign: "STOP FIRST on Red or Flashing Red, then drive on if nobody's crossing." Happy Chinese New Year.

Stupidest govt of all time

RH:
1. Foreigners have known for a long time that Singapore PR is the most profitable in the world. Since in almost all human affairs, what is profitable for one group is invariable at the expense of another/others, this phenomenon totally screws us local Singaporeans, as in all zero sum games.

2. This phenomenon did not arise by chance, since EVERYTHING is controlled in Singapore. Not that what I am about to explain has been thought out by LIE KY 2A1B WKS MBT or any of the other crony Ministers. They are simply too stupid and incompetent for such elegant logic and arguments, obvious though these are once explained. Theirs has been 50 years of "big doses of incompetent govt", and then some.

3. For example, they have been raising the prices of HDB and private housing all along, as all monopolies are wont to do. But the extremes of such deliberate, planned and controlled price increases were after the announcement of the so-called ha3 "asset enhancement scheme", which is simply deliberate huge increases in HDB flat prices year after year after year, resulting in the recent Temasek Review news reports on S$990,000 and S$999,000 asking prices for old, 5-room HDB flats [many years lived in], into their 99-year leases.

4. This asset enhancement scheme of yearly, huge price increases led to an almost perfect predictability of housing prices, never smart for any economy nor possible since all other economies allow free competition and supply & demand forces to affect prices whereas our LIEgime totally controls every aspect of our economy, esp housing prices. Plus, they never thought to restrict speculation or discourage flipping of houses, mostly because the Ministers and the elite classes are heavily involved in these very profitable ventures. LIE KY LHL LWL and their many relatives were, for example, corruptly buying luxury condos from HPL at illegal discounts for speculation profits, since they all have many houses, so not for living in. "For investment" explains LIE KY, meaning for speculation profits. Buy low, sell high, in other words. So, without discouragement of speculation, HDB and private property became a sure way to increase wealth, on paper, at least, since the LIEgime controlled prices so well these kept rising, and very rapidly. Their main method is to restrict supply of HDB flats and sale of govt land for condos. So much so that in 2008, they built only 3,183 HDB flats while accepting 90,000 new PRs and 20,000 new citizens, not to mention our local couples who need homes to build families. Prices soared and soared to the ~S$1m for HDB 5-rooms.

5. Most foreigners know this because a flat is THE main consideration when they come to Singapore. Once they cotton on to the fact that HDB and private property prices ALWAYS rise, as even in last year's 2009 recession, then the obvious thing is to buy a flat as quickly as possible. For most foreigners, this means applying for PR quick. So, since the LIEgime saw each PR application as a kind of endorsement of their LIEgime and is flattered, they oblige as quickly [the truth is simpler -- it's just to make a killing]. This explains why there are far more applications for PR than citizenship. You can always give up your PR and return home AND SELL YOUR FLAT FOR A HUGE PROFIT which you cannot once you give up your foreign citizenship. Some do apply for citizenship for the benefits, but like Temasek Review pointed out, a foreign couple always keeps 1 of the couple's original, foreign, citizenship so they enjoy the best of both worlds, and can always return home, selling their flat for a huge profit. Again, the LIEgime is flattered that some foreigners apply for citizenship and goes into a tizzy at this 'endorsement' of their govt and policies, when the truth is simply to make a killing.

6. With the most pro-foreigner policies in the world [and by zero sum game the most anti-citizen policies in the world], the foreigner never had it this good anywhere in the world. He is given all the help, from free scholarships to study in our universities thus depriving our citizens of places -- many foreign students are actually brought in from even younger, into secondary schools; to finding jobs, to applying for PR, often granted in a few months with few questions asked, in prob the highest 'success rate' and fewest rejections, in the world.

7. Since PR allows the purchase of HDB flats, almost all foreigners apply, which flatters the LIEgime, which considers this an endorsement of their LIEgime. But every PR or half-spouse-citizen finds that even as the lure of huge profits from flipping property make it imperative to apply for PR, they cannot realise their profit as long as they stay here, so there is a countervailing imperative to leave, and sell their flat to take profit. This explains the high rate of 'quitters' who, after tiring of this tiny islet of 700 sq km [about 230 sq miles], and all its suffocating culture and infreedoms, leave for greener pastures or even their original homelands.

8. Thus, this story of the foreigner is one of huge profits while we citizens, who cannot easily uproot and quit, have no such profits to make since we cannot sell our flat without having to buy another, at even more ridiculous prices, now soon to breach S$1m for what's left of an old HDB 99-year lease. Worse, because the prices are constantly and rapidly rising, new couples wanting to get married and set up home have to compete with deliberate govt under-supply of flats, foreigners who are willing to pay any price knowing that in just a few years, they will not only recoup their purchase price but make a killing as well, we citizens are well and truly screwed.

9. Can there ever be a bigger "dose of incompetent govt", a govt as stupid as ours, in the entire history of govt? I rest my case.

Robert HO; S0197974D; 9 Feb 10.


Footnote 13 Feb 10: RH: That the LIEgime built only 3,183 flats in 2008 is totally incomprehensible. That this 3,183 is only a tiny fraction of what is needed can be predicted as early as 1986 -- when 38,379 babies were born. They would now be ~24 years old, coupling into ~19,000 couples so needing ~19,000 flats [actual 2008 marriages = 24,596, close to what could have been predicted from the 1980s. Not that 1986 was special -- other than my son's birth -- the ~40,000 babies is a longtime constant so doesnt take a Great Forecaster to see]. Add in the insane 90,000 new PRs in 2008 and another 20,000 new citizens and you have the STUPIDEST GOVT OF ALL TIME!!! Note: I have not factored in deaths because deaths do not add much to the supply of flats every year. Nor have I factored in private housing since they are so expensive 82% are forced to live in tiny HDB flats built by the govt monopoly.

[Added 31 Oct 2011]:
RH:
1. On Sat 19 Mar 2011, just before the General Election on 7 May 2011, LIE KY made the mind-bogglingly 'stupid and incompetent' promise that "85% [actually 82%] of Singaporeans are living in HDB [public housing] flats and we intend to keep the values of these homes up. IT WILL NEVER GO DOWN."

2. That this is impossible is obvious upon a few seconds' thinking. For example, since all HDB flats are leasehold for 99 years, obviously if your flat has only, say, 10 years, or 20 years, or 30 years of lease left, you can never sell it for a higher price than you bought it. Obviously. In fact, the general experience and understanding is that HDB flats over 30 years are unsellable, let alone fetch a price higher than the owner paid for it.

3. Yet LIE KY was not just being his typical 'stupid and incompetent' self. He was merely proclaiming a fundamental policy that is:

a. the centrepiece and key to all his economic policies

b. key to his amassing huge 'reserves', which are actually just a loan-transfer from the CPF, which itself is merely a temporary repository of the CPF members' compulsory [about 36% of every paycheque] savings, allowed for paying HDB mortgages, hence most people are yet to begin fighting against this expropriation of their paycheques, nor do they realise it IS expropriation

c. this huge 'reserves' other half being made up of ever-increasing [and ridiculously overpriced, BY MANY MULTIPLES] prices of HDB public housing flats sold to citizens and PRs at unbelievably humongous, profiteering and rapacious profits

4. Thus, to repeat this important para 3, LIE KY central economic policy is huge reserves made up of borrowing the entire CPF treasure chest for him to use as he wants [mostly to buy a huge red-carpet welcome from other countries and foreign companies greedy for his 'investments'] + further building up huge reserves by charging ridiculous prices for his tiny public housing HDB flats. With this much monies, he also uses it to choose winners and losers in luring sexy 'industries' [usually just a half dozen factories] that he thinks make him Look Good, such as 'high techs', etc. He also spends some money on other Look Goods, such as a clean and modern city. Thus, overpriced public housing is central to ALL his economic policies. Understand this and you understand how Singapore economy works and once you understand this, you also understand how Singapore politics works and from this, how every branch of Singapore Govt works, from education to labour to the huge influx of foreign workers. LEEism is exceeding simple and utterly Stupid and Incompetent.

5. Thus, so central is Overpriced and Ever-Rising HDB public housing prices that it is the Most Important Single Policy in LEEism. This explains LIE KY promise on 19 Mar 2011. Although Minister for National Development [HDB] MAH Bow Tan was sacked after the election, he was just the scapegoat, as is usual. His policy of deliberate and massive undersupply of HDB flats was not his alone. It is the longtime and continuing LEEism from LIE KY himself and implemented [the entire Cabinet and govt down are all just Implementors without a single Originator or Thinker, which honour and right is reserved for LIE KY alone]. LIE KY is responsible for EVERYTHING, including the massive undersupply of HDB public housing flats.

6. Like every economic policy, a single major policy can distort the entire economy, like in this case of deliberate overpricing of HDB public housing flats. Housing is always a major component of every economy and exaggeratedly so in a tiny city and tiny economy like Singapore. Given that the almighty, omnipresent and omniscient govt can control every single behaviour and policy in this tiny, over-governed city, and the Major Policy is to keep increasing HDB public housing prices, this necessitates deliberate undersupply of HDB flats, and simultaneously also ramping up demand with an influx of foreigners, while maintaining an absolute monopoly in housing 82% of the entire population, all in order to keep prices ever higher and higher and higher. Leading to the unbelievably ridiculous [see my Footnote of 13 Feb 2010 above].

7. With LIE KY leading the charge, and abetted by his crony Ministers, the Singapore Govt also expertly [as always] 'managed perceptions' of the people, through heavy papaganda by all his controlled medias as well as every organ of influence. Thus, Singaporeans, who in the best of times, are the most stupid people on earth, bred and made that way for easier control and management, discouraged from criticising the govt and therefore all critical thinking, believed in certain fallacies:

a. that HDB flats prices can and will keep rising as promised by LIE KY and his entire govt for decades, promoted by all the state medias who also absent any information that may contradict such beliefs

b. that this is actual fact, that HDB prices keep rising, never mind that released selling prices represent ONLY SUCCESSFUL SALES while the vast majority of flats are either unsellable, cannot fetch high prices, or that owners cannot sell because they would have to pay even higher prices for their new replacement flat. For example, in 2010, only 32, 257 HDB flats were sold as Resale Flats while there were 1,007,229 HDB flats built altogether by 2010, giving 3.2%. Even if this ~3% successful HDB Resales fetched humongous profits over and above their original prices, it is stupid and incompetent of the govt and people to believe that this experience of the 3% represents a Reality for all 100% of HDB dwellers. But, thanks to relentless papaganda, the absence of critical thinking and even information, this is the prevailing reality. Singapore and the LIEgime are Myths and Illusions, cleverly and relentlessly papagated and usually believed

c. a further distortion is the necessity to deliberately keep supply of HDB flats vastly below demand [see example in my above Footnote 13 Feb 2010]. This started off as simply monopoly greed, then became an economic mainstay and imperative because hugely profitable, then ballooned into a critical election decider and barometer of the peoples' fury, that went unrecognised and censored, silenced as only a tyrant LIEgime can effect, with the result that General Election May 2011 saw the LIEgime vote drop 6% to 60.14%, the lowest since independence. However, the LIEgime has repeatedly cheated in elections and no figures or results should be believed as genuine. Everything is 'managed' and manipulated

d. thus, LIE KY promise to "never" let HDB flats prices "go down" is simply a political and economic imperative. As long as HDB prices of new flats keep rising inexorably and the 3% of Resale HDB flats prices seem high and 'profitable', buyers are content enough to keep paying ever-higher prices. After all, firstly, prices keep rising so nothing can be done about it except book a flat as soon as the couple becomes eligible. Secondly, as long as the 3% can keep selling at very high prices Resale, there is the hope that maybe, one day, if you do get to sell, you may make a handsome profit. In the meantime, there is the comforting belief that you own an appreciating asset, that is worth much more than you paid, if you ever need to sell. This, then, is the Psychology of HDB Owners. Like all irrational beliefs, it cannot stand up to a moment's logic but logic is never strong among sheep or "sheeple" as termed online. Keeping people stupid is key to stability and stability is good for the LIEgime because with stability, nothing changes and if nothing changes, then the LIE Dynasty rules forever. Hence Stability is the key virtue for dynasties.

8. I have spent time and thought on HDB. It is important because it is THE central plank of LIE KY economic and therefore also, political strategy. Understand HDB and you understand much of LIE KY stupidity and incompetence and why Singapore is all just Bubbles and like all bubbles, will burst and collapse.
