The problem is, to gain respect cannot be use by force. These people at the top don't understand it.
Want to use by force can, it is only if it got to do with unreasonable people and or in life threatening situations.
So by forcing nsf to download SGSecure app is because of them (nsf) being unreasonable and or it will be life threatening if they don't download SGSecure app? No right? So what's the problem? The top people mindset.
Like for example, the top may have 1 set of thinking.. This approach is good, everyone below must follow. However all people beside the top people, thinking is what the.. This approach by the top makes no sense at all. So who is right and who is wrong? The top is right and the rest of the people is wrong? Maybe yes and maybe not. So what the top people could do is the think why the people below them think differently. Is it because of the app (for this case SGSecure app) really sucks? Is it because of this really not the suitable approach? And etc and then evaluate. And not because of only few people at top think it's good and then go from top down approach. This is no good. They will not gain people respect by doing so.
its not a matter of respect but trying to solve an image of a total failure of the apps.
IF this is true, I cannot help by agreeing that the "deep-seated culture " come from somewhere that is very close to the heart and exhibited it in the SMRT.
For some reasons, I can't help but feel it is near, but where, I don't know.
I always feel that on one hand we were warned and told to be wary of fake news. On the other hand, we are getting bombarded by such situation where the confusing signal wants to believe its fake news.
Probably its another social experiment to test us.
Perhaps we should use the SGSecure to see if this is true.

What's new ?
I doubt its force. There is no gun pointed at your head. You have a choice to disobey and face the consequence.
If don't want to download the app then just say you got no data plan lah. Only can use wi-fi, what's the purpose of downloading when it's not functional most of the time ?
I would have downloaded in a heartbeat IF there was a outbreak of a riot like the jurong coffee shop incident and it trigger an alert to tell people not to go to the coffeeshop becuase of gang crash.
That to me would be worth some points to have SGsecure app. Similar to flood / water ponding.
If there is an alert that is fast enough for me to change the course of my direction, it is worth the storage space on my phone.
