The Violence Inherent in The System

Thought we could all do with a laugh this friday after a rather worrying few weeks. I believe it was recently posted on Legal janitor's blog.



A little bit of political satire on systems of government.

Monty Python classic.

The men behind knocking the coconut shells are so obviously made out of people like Bhavani and Vivian Balakrishnan.

"We are the knights that say Ni'!"

Playing devil's advocate, what about another Monty Python scene, from Life of Brian? - "What did the Romans ever do for us?" Well, CPF, safe streets, low unemployment, booming economy... and rising cost of living, crushing of dissent, suppression of creativity, triple digit low press freedom and happiness ratings...

"The Roman Empire crumbled to dust because it lacked the spirit of liberalism and free enterprise."- Ludwig von Mises

Exactly. The Roman Empire was a massive socialist state.

I have a theory—that Singapore will go the same way.

Hence my nick :-)
