Abstract from TODAY online news reports on the Apolitical Singaporean,
In a recent survey of more than 500 people conducted by the Political Development Feedback Group, a body under the Ministry of Community Development, Youth and Sports (MCYS), 63.4 per cent of Singaporeans said they knew little or nothing about the Constitution and the organs of state.===
But wait, it gets more worrying.
Two-thirds or more than 66 per cent of Singaporeans believe that they have little or no influence at all on national issues.
A whopping 92.7 per cent have never given feedback to the Government.
94.9 per cent have never written letters to a newspaper.
And 94.5 per cent don't know what it's like to sign a petition..."

Questions to ask, "How accurate are the statistics? Are Singaporeans really that apathetic? Fear Factor? etc etc "
