Economic =/= Social. They can be ludicrously right-wing one-step-above-anarcho-capitalism and still be very much socially liberal. Hell, this sort of mismatch was the bloody standard in the US until the 60s, then the Civil Rights movement got the Dixiecrat constituency to focus on small government and low taxes because they'd come to want that, but considered shitting on niggers important enough to accept large government and higher taxes. When shitting on niggers stopped being available thanks to the Civil Rights movement winning legislatively, the constituency switched to Republicans for economic policy. And then about 20 years later the social policy finished switching and we got the hardcore religious nutters.Singapore is also a hyper capitalist hellhole that lords itself over the rest of SEA like Queen Motherfucking Victoria so let's slow our role on saying it appreciates tolerance and diversity.
