Spoilers alert! For those who want to know what all the fuss is about, but refuses to pay a penny to see the film, we at the Longkang are here for you! Crazy Rich Asian hits the cinema riding a wave of controversy and praise, it’s either the first all Asian cast out of Hollywood or a failed attempt at diversity depending on who you ask. But whats the real story here? Us kitties will sort out the gold from the muck in this very special episode of the LongKangKitties!
The longkang gets split into many camps this week over the refugee issue with our returning guest, Saiful!! How should nations deal with the influx of people fleeing from war or disaster? The answer, as we discovered, is not so straightforward. The kitties grappled with their internal struggles to maintain sovereignty while extending a helping hand.
On this most auspicious of weekends, we bring you the final word on the Ben Davis situation! Returning guest Saiful not only shares his football expertise but also his thoughts on Ben Davis’ deferment rejection and the implication that brings.
Since Davis probably does not have any uncles or cousin to teach him how to deal with the bureaucrats in our army, he should totally listen to 4 random strangers with his interest at heart!
The answer to the question, we don’t know! Problem is, does the government know?! Do the people know, or care? This week we excavate the foundations of the HDB, uncovering the fatal flaws in its construction and design. We discuss how a 99 year lease combined with SERS that only benefits 4% of the population spells disaster, potential solutions to the problem, and if drinking beer really does really make one of our hosts, queer!
If you ever wanted to commit political career suicide, just simply say we should cut funding to education, but fortunately here at the LongKang we have no such consideration! Based broadly on the book “The case against Education” written by Bryan Caplan, we discuss the prevailing schools of thoughts surrounding the issue. Are schools focusing on signalling or building human capital? What subjects would you add to the current curriculum? And finally, would you take up on Dan’s pain spike challenge?
Free money for everyone! Universal basic income is a very real possibility in the future, so what do we really think of it? In this episode, we got special guest Danny from the Economical Rice Podcast to discuss UBI, because you know, we occasionally have someone who knows what they’re talking about. This week we talk about the ups and downs of such a system, alternate solutions, and finally, in which situation will Danny strap himself to a rocket and launch himself into the Sun (hint: its in the picture).

Don’t let the image fool you! We’re deep into the tunnels of SMRT this week, letting our feelings about new CEO Neo Kian Hong gently come into contact with each other. While most of the kitties weren’t impress, JonCat does his best to defend the incoming leader. What does a CEO do anyway? What characteristics do CEOs across the world share? And finally, has DanCat the good citizen joined a secret society? Find out more this week in the LongKang!
