All over the world, the gulf between rich and poor is widening. Recent
statistics in the US reveal that in 2005, the wealthiest 1 percent of
Americans earned a staggering 21.2 percent of all income, the highest
amount ever. At the other pole, the bottom 50 percent earned just 12.8
percent of all income. In other words, the income of the richest 3 million
people was nearly twice as much as the income of the poorest 150 million.
Australia is rapidly becoming one of the most unequal of the advanced
capitalist societies. A financial aristocracy, wallowing in obscene levels
of wealth, dominates political and economic life, while millions of
ordinary people, suffering the effects of a decades-long assault on
working conditions and wages, have been effectively marginalised. A new
and vast category has been created: the working poor.
According to a survey by Business Review Weekly, the richest 200
individuals have a combined wealth of $128 billion, an extraordinary
increase of 26.7 percent from last year¡ªthe biggest rise in the history
of the survey. At the other end of the scale, more than 3.5 million people
live in households earning a combined income of less than $400 a week, and
as many as 4.1 million¡ª22.6 percent of the population¡ªlive below the
The statistics explode the official myth of universal ¡°economic
prosperity¡± and Howard¡¯s astonishing claim that ¡°Australia¡¯s working
families have never been better off¡±: the richest 20 percent own nearly
67 percent of all wealth, while according to the Reserve Bank, the poorest
20 percent own just 0.2 percent.
During the past few years, the costs of everyday life have soared,
particularly for hospital, medical and dental expenses, fuel, food,
housing and child care. Many major urban centres, including Sydney and
Melbourne, are suffering a ¡°rental crisis¡±, with record low vacancy
rates and escalating rents. A series of recent interest rate rises has had
devastating consequences for large numbers of working people struggling to
pay off their mortgages. Home repossessions have skyrocketed, inflicting
misery on thousands of families. In Sydney¡¯s working class western
suburbs of Liverpool and Fairfield, for example, one in every 200 homes
was subject to a court-ordered eviction in 2006. The figures for 2007 are
expected to be far worse
Economic and job insecurity, caused by high levels of personal debt and
the casualisation of employment¡ªnow at 28 percent of the workforce, or
2.3 million casual workers¡ªis creating unbearable strains and tensions in
the daily lives of millions. These are leading, in turn, to the explosion
of myriad social problems, including family breakdown, mental illness,
alcoholism and drug addiction, all at record levels.

Singaporeans who asked 24/7 what the government can do for them are
doomed to live in POVERTY for the rest of their lives.!
Aussies not only asked what their government can do for them 24/7 but
minute of the day. See what they get. They have free health care. They
welfare for the poor and unemployed. They have a good life.
Singaporeans must continue to pressure the government to ease up and make
their lives easier. Only then will the pap government dip into the US$500
to help them out. If they keep quiet, the pap government will quietly
But those Singaporeans who ask what they can do for the government will
be RICH! Or at least they will not live in poverty.
Just look at the old couple who lived quietly in their pigeon hole and
every night they light a candle. If they asked what the government can do
for them they would not have to live such miserable lives.
There is NO reason for any Singaporean who were born and raised in
Singapore to live in poverty unless they make the wrong choices in life
while they were young. And they are responsible and would have to suffer
for the wrong choices that they have made.
The Singapore pap government to a very great extent determine for
the Singaporeans what their future will be. Whether they are chosen to
be elites or toilet cleaners the pap government oledi knows after primary
three. The Singapore government micro managed the lives of Singaporeans.
Often people take for granted that everything will be fine once they
were born in Singapore, right? Or that they wiil live happy if they were
born in the US, right?
Not true. Many think that it is a curse to be born in Singapore. They
study and work very hard and yet still don't have a good life and a
Wrong!!! You can be as happy as only what you could do with your life,
what you were capable of achieved in life. If you don't have a good
education in Singapore, you will be poor! If you are lazy and don't like
to work hard, you will be poor! And if you keep on asking what can the
government do for you, and not what you can do for the government, you
are doomed to live in poverty for ever. Worst, if you INSIST that the
government owed you something big just because you were born in
Singapore and nothing much more than that, start thinking about jumping
in a dry swimming pool from a fifty-foot high jumping board!
So quit asking what the government can do. Instead ask what you can do
for the government.
Like that then the government should give up their job and let other
Singaporeans take over.
