In the national conversation, some kinds of talk don’t come cheap #singapore

The second hurdle is the unwillingness to discuss fundamental rights issues and paradigmatic straitjackets. When criticism is labelled as “politicisation”, as discussed in my most recent post, what conversation is possible? Questions of fundamental rights — e.g. what do we mean by equality? freedom of expression? right to information? — are foundational to the futures we are supposedly to imagine. Again, early indications are that these are going to be dismissed as irrelevant to the conversation. Moreover, a reexamination of the paradigms would also be essential to a substantive assay of the possible paths. In this regard, an excellent paper by Donald Low (Reframing the national conversation ) has been circulating and is a must-read.
