In his plays the incredibly trenchant German playwrite Bertolt Brecht satirized the East German communists is casting them as such:

"If the people let down the Communist Party, then it was up to the communist party to 'dissolve' the people and get themselves a new people".

This reversing of democracy is indeed a twisted idea of such a horrific and unimaginable magnitude -- which is one of the reasons Brecht is still considered a thinking-genius today.

You could look on the PAP doctrine through the lens of Bertolt Brecht: The people getting too disobedient and disrespectful of the 'wonders' of 'the world's best government'? simple: Get new people.
