If let’s say Sg youth are not allowed IG, FB, YT, what’s app n cut of internet access to outside world. Then the whole mkt suddenly flushed with fake products n doctored food. I think there will be protest also.

I agree with Shanmugan's view:
First, internal agencies are not the front-line solution for all problems, said Mr Shanmugam.
"They are a solution for tactical problems, but the problems (in Hong Kong) first of all start from politics, and the fundamental socio-economic issues," he said.
These issues cannot be dealt with by letting the police handle the protesters, he added.
"The responsibility starts with the government to get the basic issues right in society... If the fundamental issues are wrong, and 10,000 people go on the streets every day or every week, no police force I think can deal with it, including in Singapore," said the minister.
The second lesson, said Mr Shanmugam, lies in ministers taking responsibility in such situations, rather than the police.
Lastly, the Hong Kong unrest has shown that it is important to keep the public fully informed on what is happening, said Mr Shanmugam.
"Because if we leave an information void, the public will turn to unverified sources, rumours... It will happen anyway, but you've got to try and prevent it," he added.
