Lu Bu's similarities with SG's hybrid regime:
- Mighty warrior <---> Mighty GDP growth--->
- Willing to sell out own lords for selfish gains <---> Willing to sell out citizen interests for selfish gains--->
Lu Bu in his bid to save his ass from the executioner's blade tried to entice Cao Cao to use his warrior talents. Cao Cao being a man who treasure talents sought Liu Bei's advice.
He knows being in a position of power, there are many porlumpars(asslickers) around him.
Liu Bei replied indirectly through the consequences of the 3 men who adopted Lu Bu.
For those unfamiliar with Romance of the 3 Kingdoms, Cao Cao ordered Lu Bu to be executed upon hearing Liu Bei's advice.
Back to SG, it is common to read comments that the 60% of voters who voted for the hybrid regime are labelled as daft. Keep getting screwed over & over & over by the 'Lu Bu' style hybrid regime & didn't learn their lesson.
For the wiser, why bother about impressive fighting skills/gdp growth when one would be screwed as a result?
On talents, there are good & bad talents. Unfortunately, the word 'talents' is severely abused in SG with regards to the overly-liberal immigration policy.
