“Architecture is not just lines but an aspiration from God.” A Proposal specially prepared for DPM Lee Hsien Loong to save the green field in front of Cathay Building.
A Great Nation must have Art as its core because true art is the best way to bring back our soul as it distracts you from the materialistic world. I know that art has a spiritual connection to ‘The Consciousness’, especially in the performing arts. It cannot be bought. We cannot have art just because our leaders want it. We cannot just say, ”We have money now, we are ready for art, and we must have art” Similarly, the government can’t just expect the citizens to produce babies, “Now I wanted so many babies, go and produce and I will pay you so much per head”. It is very worrisome with such pragmatic attitude as I already heard young couples that just got married and they are delaying the pregnancy to wait for the Government announcement how much they will be pay per head.
How can a strong and meaningful society evolved through A capitalist mean if you give me so much I will pay you so much? It is so sad and worrisome for the future generation if this is the way to go in nation building?
