Happy In The Minority: the comedy and tragedy of living in Singapore
After witnessing what seemed like a political awakening among normally apathetic Singaporeans in the 2011 General Elections, the results of GE2015 threw a major upset. Many voters, optimistic of greater freedom and democracy, were disappointed. The results belied all the robust debates and discussions on social media. What happened? This book is a collection of Chan Joon Yee's blog posts made just before and after GE2015. Revisiting these writings help us capture the hope and despair of the non-conformists back then. As GE2020 approaches in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, should the non-conformists be optimistic that there is hope for change? Or should they be prepared to live happily in the minority.
