Singaporeans have become selfish and self-centered people thanks to the government?

Singapore has many strange rules to determine who qualifies for certain benefits. Here is an example about the income ceiling that qualifies for a BTO (built-to-order) or subsidised HDB flat. http://theonlinecitizen.com/2011/11/bto-flat-income-ceiling-rules-why-include-commissions-but-exclude-bonuses/ This type of rules apply to many other areas, such as means-testing, access to welfare assistance, etc. This is what life is like in Singapore: Convoluted Wasteful in spending time in rationalizing and managing these complexities Creating a selfish and self-centered people, fighting for their self interest. A better system is to manage the economic and social life so that the wages are in line with the cost of housing and cost of living, so that all these convoluted rules are not required.
