  • racism, poverty, traffic, pollution in the world.

  • There are so many countries with problems, it seems like every country and every person is filled with problems.

  • So who has the solutions To answer that question?

  • I decided to put my pride aside and go learn from a country that has the same problems as all of us, but has managed to find solutions because this is the incredible story off the almost perfect country off Singapore.

  • In Singapore, many races live the Indians, the Malay, Chinese and your Asians.

  • And because people of different races might disagree and hate each other, Singapore forced all of them to live together in buildings on top of each other next to each other.

  • So instead of enemies, they are neighbors.

  • And because of this, Singapore built a racial harmony that many many countries don't have traffic.

  • Many countries also suffer from traffic.

  • It's the worst in Singapore.

  • They had traffic until they fixed it In Singapore, they limited the number of cars on the road.

  • Number off cars total in the entire country cannot increase many people, instead of cars, take public transportation, and very few people are stuck in traffic.

  • Pollution is another environmental problem.

  • Landfills look and smell disgusting in many, many countries.

  • But in Singapore they do not.

  • Because they take their trash, they burn it, filter out the smoke, collect the ashes and dump them underwater in a man made island.

  • Instead of this, The island looks like this there.

  • Trash island is so clean it looks like a resort.

  • Another problem is fresh water.

  • So much of it is wasted.

  • But not in Singapore.

  • These guys built an entire system that takes their poo and pee water.

  • You know this on turns into clean water that humans can drink.

  • And when you drink water that used to be pool, you realize water should never, ever be wasted again.

  • When I saw the way they built and do things from water systems to air Force two buildings to guardians, I was amazed because all of the problems above they solved in 53 years since they gained independence.

  • And you didn't hear that from me?

  • You heard it from the Prime Minister himself.

  • Hi, I'm the Prime Minister.

  • This is what we have been building in Singapore for 53 years and we'll be building it for many more years.

  • Thio, Don't get me wrong.

  • Singapore still has a lot of problems with no solutions that I know of the to suffer from inequality, high prices, anti security Many elderly people still can't afford to retire.

  • Many imported foreign workers are very low paid, and the government can be too restrictive.

  • Even gum is ill.

  • E o Singapore has many problems, but unlike many, they are trying to fix them.

  • That's why they're passport is the strongest there.

  • Seaport is the second busiest.

  • Water is the cleanest.

  • Airport is the greatest.

  • Landfills are the prettiest, and people are the froth arrived in Singapore, saying, I hit Singapore because I was jealous.

  • But now I'm leaving Singapore, saying, I love Singapore because there's a lot we can learn from them.

  • If they can solve so many problems in only 53 years, then why can't wait before you go?

  • One last thing, that video you just saw I made using this camera and this microphone.

  • But for the first time ever, I'm ditching my camera and I'm picking up my podcasting equipment because yes, I'm starting a podcast.
