The power elite and the ignorant mob in Singapore

NUS (National University of Singapore) and NTU (Nanyang Technological University) are considered "world-class" universities (see THE World University Rankings 2010), and the Singapore school students achieve "world-class" results (for example). The Singaporean society is vastly better educated (by an educational system that excels in producing a capable workforce) now than in 1959 (when PAP gained power) or 1965 (at Independence).

Are Singaporeans still as "immature" and "stupid" as they were fifty-one years ago (when they voted the PAP into power)? When will they become wise?

For how long does the governing elite intend to arrogate to itself the right to suppress all dissent in the name of the ignorant and gullible masses?
