What makes America Great, and LKY unnecessary

Whether the president is a wimp or Bozo doesn’t really matter

The greatly respected political scientist and TV election analyst Anthony King, who died in January, observed last year that the best-governed countries “owe their good government in large part to the fact that their political institutions and political culture obviate the need for strong leaders”.

He concluded: “A successful liberal democracy is liable to be one that is effectively “leader-proofed”, one in which… it is made difficult for a strong leader to acquire and wield power and in which the government does not rely on strong leaders for its long-term success”.

He was surely right.

So there’s no way that the PAP will ever allow S’pore to become a democracy, let alone a liberal democracy, lest it becomes a successful one, making the PAP surplus to needs i.e. redundant.
