Not for love of money, but of Humanity. "Greater is he who works for the good of all, then he who works for the good of himself only" ~ Matthew 25:40: "The King will reply, 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.'"- (NIV). I live in Singapore where the Emperor must not be disturbed.

It is not so much the one party system per se that has messed up Singapore BUT how this sad situation was arrived at in the first place:

Fixing the opposition using supersized GRC system of elections, civil service(HDB)/ PA as the political agent representing PAP political interest, the AGC taking sides and rooting for PAP:

Fixing the opposition according to PM Lee:
Supersized GRCs (i.e. moved goal posts) benefiting larger parties like PAP to scare away weak opposition competition thus allowing more PAP coat-tail MPs to enter parliament:
'Without some assurance of a good chance of winning at least their first election, many able and successful young Singaporeans may not risk their careers to join politics,' Mr Goh Chok Tong, June 2006 ['GRCs make it easier to find top talent: SM'].
[Pict= Disassembling GRC system benefits PAP (Part 1 of 3)]
The AGC rooting for the incumbent PAP AGAINST constitutional rules defining/ directing its impartiality:

Civil service (HDB) being manhandled by PA to turn every gahmen national upgrading policy into a political weapon (reward for votes policy (pork barrel politics basically)):
