Singapore’s story is an amazing one. It has an ultra-efficient, modern airport, built on land reclaimed from the sea. A very efficient transport system where you can get anywhere by their very fast underground trains. Reputed to be the cleanest city in the world. A huge number of high-rise apartments some go up to 70 storeys high (in contrast, Times Tower, the tallest building in E & Central Africa is 38 storeys). 90% of the housing in Singapore is constructed by the government, and then provided at subsidized prices to the populace. The government operates like a corporation and invests public funds, periodically giving a dividend to all citizens! Singapore got their independence from the British only 3 months ahead of Kenya. Unlike us, they had practically no natural resources. Yet where Kenya gets 1M tourists a year, they get 1M tourists a month! Where Kenya’s per capita income (average income per person per year) is 1,784$, Singapore’s is 32x as high! At 57,238$ – the 3rd highest in the world!What’s the difference? What happened to us?I see a key reason in our passage why our involvement in politics is not optional. EVIL WINS WHEN GOOD PEOPLE DO NOTHING.Read Judges 9:1-21
