SAF to inculcate NS doctrine into preschoolers

admin / 18 hours ago July 1, 2015


Calling it a “special learning journey”, the Singapore Armed Force Reservist Association (SAFRA) tied up with a childcare chain, Kinderland Educare Services, and brought 110 preschoolers to a military training ground to inculcate NS doctrine.

One of the visits was the SAFTI Military Institute, and children as young as four years old were shown military training like drills and physical tests like the Standard Obstacle Course (SOC).

The Vice President of the SAF Veterans’ League Colonel (RET) Lau Kee Siong even said that the SAF is trying to seed “positive values like discipline, fighting spirit and ethics” in the children .

Due to falling popularity and support of National Service (NS), more young Singaporeans see NS as disruptive, unnecessary and a bastion of inequality. This is largely due to the influx of foreigners who were given better opportunities in universities admission and employment. New citizens and Permanent Residents are also excused from the oppressive NS regime, which often see many servicemen in jail for offenses as trivial as insubordination and “general disobedience”.

Many Singaporeans have been calling for the reduction of NS because of its disruptive nature, with some even calling for its total abolition because NS becomes irrelevant in an information age today. The growing dissent against the ruling party PAP Government has also created a “rebel force”, where soldiers are more likely to turn their guns against the PAP leaders in times of conflict instead of shooting at the enemy.

The move to seed ideas of National Service into young Singaporeans is nothing new as the Singapore education and media run NS propaganda in textbooks and the national newspapers. Singaporeans as young as 6 years old are taught a subject called “Civil and Moral Education” where NS was advertised as the Singaporean way of life. It appears the Singapore Government have decided to push the bar lower and expose preschoolers to NS.
Do you think children should be exposed to the NS indoctrination and at such a young age?

Doctrine summary?

I wonder, what is the advantage and disadvantage of all land doctrines and naval engagement doctrine in 1.03? It seems Blitzkrieg is default best doctrine on land regardless what you do and Fleet-in-Being is default best naval engagement doctrine. In that case, why go to other doctrine besides the reason you don't have proper tech team? ...

Natural Doctrine lacks display area adjustment options

Not sure where to report this, but the top, right, bottom, and left of the game are clearly getting cutoff by a couple of inches on my 55" HDTV and unlike other games, I found no Display Area Adjustment Option to make displayed content bound within my TV-Screen Display Area. Should I wait for this issue to be patched, or return the game and demand a refund for a game I consider unpleasant to play in its current form? How is one supposed to report such oversight / bugs to hopefully...

Questions about Natural Doctrine

For anyone that has played this, how hard is it? Are we talking Demon's Souls before the update that nerfed the difficulty? Also, does it look really dated on ps4? Because I'm leaning towards ps3 due to it being $20 cheaper.     Mod Edit: Updated title and label. Check here for more information. Thanks! --GrainneNessa...

Natural Doctrine is...good

So I've been playing through it and I think the rough reviews are a little misleading.Is the game tough... yes... but only so much as how well you understand the time line and the linking system.  I, myself,  am still figuring it out, but it's slowly starting to make sense. For example... there was a section of the game, which I noticed,  was really making some players mad. It essentially involved running away from some bug monsters .  I did fail 3 times..but then I figu...

If these PRs can join SAF Volunteer Corp, why can't they serve full NS?

What is ing wrong with the PAP? Why can't they make all males wanting to be sinkie PRs to serve NS first? Why do they get a free ride and enjoy the privelege of being a sinkie like eligibility to buy HDB flats? They are accepting 42, 30, and 29 years old into the SAF Volunteer Corp, they can jolly well serve NS too. And it turns out some of these PRs have foreign military experience too, even better for NS. ing Gay Loong and his bunch of traitors. Yeah, the PAP is all about fulfilling PR...
