"It has nothing to do with going abroad or adopting a superior attitude because they have ‘spent time in the west’.

That is your opinion, but I think otherwise.  It is the stint in the West that makes them feel superior; don't you know that the Chinese always look to Western countries as superior, they migrate there en mass, some even  illegally, they think the grass is greener, or as the Chinese say, the moon is brighter there!  So, when they acquire US green card, their ego gets  inflated, throw their weight around when they return home!

Quite misleading to say Singapore is a "Confucian society" that abides by old Chinese traditions ...

"Most Singaporeans follow some religion or other, so the civic-mindedness of Singaporeans may be the result of their religious fervor and less so because they are Chinese Confucians."

You are confusing religion with Confucianism which is not a religion but a way of life. You are so wrong to say that religious fervor is the reason why Singaporeans are civic minded.  While they are multiracial and multi religious, they all accept what their late leader instilled into them, the Confucian ethics of foregoing individual rights for the common good.   And that despite their different religious beliefs!

What you say about Confucianism in Singapore is irrelevant; what matters is REALITY. Singaporean ...

"Singaporeans respect the laws because they have been brought up as citizens of a multicultural and multiethnic society in which religious credos inform how people behave."

You are talking rubbish!  Religion plays no part or very little part in that; for your info, many Singapore people are non religious, the number of  believers has gone down and is still going down.  What accounts for their civic mindedness is Confucian ethics!
