Abstract: The Foreign Talent policy in Singapore has been a source of discontentment since its inception. There are various reasons given for the discontentment and disapproval of the policy, behind all of which lies something else. Through the application of psychoanalytical tools, one could make sense of the various statements and understand the structure from which such sentiments are generated. A psychoanalytic interpretation would suggest that it is too painful to speak out against the ruling government due to the significant historical events that have shown how severely a political opponent could be dealt with. All the reasons given, therefore, are simply distorted materials from the unconscious that have undergone a process of censorship, condensation and are not what they appear to be.
