Ignorance is what keeps the PAP in power. So citizens will not question the most undemocratic Presidential elections about to come into human history. Citizens will not ask why some people can take so many money, keep so many money, and yet keep things so opaque, and still get ‘trusted’.
But is it bliss ignorance? Because ignorance also means we are not informed about world events and information. That we are not able to make wise decisions, appreciate the truth and beauty in the world. Unable to communicate intelligently with the rest of the educated world.
All these for the PAP’s benefit at the people’s expense.
