What I learnt in school:
1. Society views you as a unit of production:( See what capitalism does to your country? You're reduced to a mere unit, all they care about is increasing your productivity, for the sake of contributing to the GDP and making Singapore a 'world class' city
2. If you don't look as good as those who are genetically superior, or behave a little differently from the rest, you get labelled as a freak/geek/loser/misfit. It's as simple as that.
3. It's a dog eat dog world. Toughen up, or you risk getting eaten alive.
4.The Singaporean education system is utterly stifling and conformist. We're all trained to think that if we fail, it's the end of the world. At a young age, we're like docile sheep, passively accepting whatever information that is being fed to us, without bothering to challenge these ideas or even thinking for ourselves. And that's something even I am guilty of.
