    The part on minorities always have lower qualifications is not definately true. Because Singapore at this present moment do have minorities with higher qualifications. Even if it is true, lower qualification does not means lower higher post. Because they will have greater experience compared to those with just high qualifications.

  • Hi Team Thailand! Thanks for your video. I have a question though . For slide 23, it says that ’Singapore is well controlled by the government to prevent the rise of the riots’. How far do you think this is true? Don’ t you think that there are many out there who want to voice out their opinions against the government but are very stifled? What if a bunch of Chee Soon Juan's disciples daringly conducts a riot outside parliament? you never know. these people may be living in our midst.
    Thanks(: Joyce

THE END<br />I&apos;m not an atheist and I don&apos;t think I can call myself a pantheist.<br />We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages.<br />The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn&apos;t know what it is.<br />That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.<br />Quoted by: Albert Einstein<br />
