The main thrust of the writer’s argument was the fact that the rule of law should be the same regardless of the offender’s social economic background. Take a look at the Centurion Corporation, which owns and runs the Westlite Toh Guan, the dormitory that has become one of the main covid-19 clusters. If you take the low-end figure of $600 per person and the fact that there are 284,300 construction workers as at June 2019, that amounts to some S$170,580,000 a month in revenue from the workers levy alone. In addition to helping the construction companies earn good money from cheaper labour, there is an industry called labour supply. Their job is to allow their employer to hold onto their money for as long as possible. They’re the type that would rather spend their last dollar on a pack of smokes than on the bus fare they need to get to the job that could finance their own smokes. They will regularly look to force quick settlements for pennies on the dollar.

Our so called “Asian-Values” society that respects elders, for example, sees nothing wrong with old folks going through the trash so that they can pick out drinks cans to sell for a few pennies because they need the money. Nothing wrong with that. That means when you work with us, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain. The fine should be a means of teaching the offender not to commit the offence again. We fine people in society because they have committed certain transgressions. Setting a fine at a certain level in an absolute amount affects people in different ways. I remember mentioning that I found it difficult to “look after myself,” and I was told by one of my best friends, “Why do you need to look after yourself when there are other people dying to take care of you.” Governments exist to provide certain services and to set and enforce certain rules. However, one has to take ultimate responsibility for ones own actions.
Perhaps the solution for Mr. Petraeus to celebrate the success that our dorm represent, would be for him to try living in one of them. Mr. Petraeus argues that far from being a failure that the NGO crowd have made them out to be, the dorms are a sign of success. The dorms are a sign of success. There are people who need a helping hand and leg up to get out of a hole, which may not necessarily be of their own fault. Who Pays Out the Settlement in a Car Crash Lawsuit? Colorado gives car crash victims three years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit seeking compensation. Pedestrians, cyclists as well as motorbike bikers could additionally file claims after being involved in a car accident. Time is very crucial as far as the accident claims are concerned. Invalid assertions can be stricken from the record in some instances when the plaintiff legal counsel cannot prove the claims. Can really be of great help in a time of need. Having money in the bank allows governments to help those who need help without punishing the rest of us. Rich people, as the British discovered in the 70s, have a way of being able to move around and when you go after the rich or the people who want to get rich, they end moving elsewhere and the value and energy they bring to the table goes with them.
However, what Mr. Petraeus seems to forget is that just because a situation exists everywhere in the world or the fact that people don’t complain about it doesn’t make it right. Mr. Petraeus is also right in as much as the workers generally don’t complain about their lot because they are earning more than what they could earn back home and from what I could see of Westlite Toh Guan from the outside, it does not look unpleasant. Having said all of that, there are times when a society needs to redistribute the goodies to keep the system healthy. In just about every other country I’ve lived in (mainly well to do European ones), the idea of social welfare or government goodies is understood to be something that the less well-off receive because they are – well, the less-well off (polite term for poor). Insurance companies and defense lawyers often monitor accident victims’ social media accounts to see if they post anything that might contradict the allegations in the victim’s claim. Mr. Petraeus also uses another defense of the system, which is – migrant labourers are always at the bottom of the social heap wherever you go.
