Firstly they uses kindergartens to brainwash our children. This has been mentioned many times by opposition parties but Singaporeans didn't pay much attention to it.
Secondly they know that doctor is a well respected profession so they try to limit locals from becoming doctors just in case they join oppositions. The number is limited to a very small figure and then tightly control thr SMC.
As far as doctors are concerned they would rather we have less than enough than extra. Their theory is if we don't have enough we can import and those imports will not be a political threat to PAP. So less is a good thing.
Thirdly the number of locals studying law is also limited. When fewer people knows about law then fewer people will challenge PAP's wrong doings. PAP do not want justice or fairness. They want not to be challenged.
One obvious example is regarding all in-progress cases. Govt dept. always tell us that they are not at liberty to discuss the case because it is still in progress. We all know this is not true. The only one cannot discuss with others is the investigating officers involved which is but 2 or 3 persons. Definitely not an organization or dept. All the other parties are not affected by the law at all. What actually happen is the govt wants to window dress the case if necessary before the public knows about it.
Another example I want to highlight is regarding the Romanian Embassador hit and run case. Our newspapers only report it one week later after the Romanian has left Singapore. Isn't this betraying Singaporeans ? Again no one found out or questioned the govt. This is PAP true colors. This is Singapore media.
I dare said our govt lies often and in all major policies and not for Singaporeans good. It is for their own good.
