Overpopulation will lead to an implosion
Posted by temasektimes on October 12, 2012
I agree that Malay wedding at void decks add colour to our Singapore cultural fabric. However now with the over crowding, people’s tolerance to noise and over crowding have changed. Many people are craving for a little peace of mind and more personal space.
May we still maintain our way of life without adding further dress on other residents? Can we move funerals and weddings and other community events to a the town hall? This would reduce the noise levels for those who are studying or need peace and quiet for rest and healing. Locating at town halls and community halls still preserves our way of life and give other people more peace of mind. All these intolerance is a result of our poor immigration policies.
This is what is called cabin fever which usually occurs in winter time when big numbers of people are restricted by weather conditions to remain in one place such as home and dorms. Studies have shown that quarrels and fights increased in this period. We have cramped too many people in a small island and tolerance levels are dropping. So it is useless to keep talking about integration when more FTs are being cramped into an already crowded Singapore.
Take a human being growths and the person is growing up skywards becoming taller and reaching for the skies but here we r expanding sideways which means getting fat and thus is not healthy to our economy. Over feeding will cause an implosion.
