World Charity Index - Where we stand.... #sgpolitics

I wonder if this dismal performance has something to do with the PAP turning welfare into a dirty word in Singapore. Charity and giving is after all about welfare - giving to the needy, helping the poor, treating the sick. The PAP approach of making the sick shoulder as much financial burden as possible, giving as little as possible to the needy to keep taxes for the richest Singaporeans low and insistence that the inequality in our society is acceptable (as long as there is social mobility?). The PAP leaders themselves too set the wrong example - taking as much salaries as they could justify (and sometimes couldn't) when they are in public service. It could also be elitism where the belief that "some are more equal than others" dominates the upper echelons of our society - remember what Wee Shu Min was brought up to believe?
