Response to Inap Lo Kago Boi, Brukim Bush Tasol

This is the usual kind of meaningless patriotic pulp that I expect from you and your kith, next you'll be telling us that PNG/eans needs to come together to ______________ (FILL BLANK WITH EMPTY JINGOISTIC CAUSE).

Why not post about the tough subjects, e.g The Papua New Guinean state's proclaimed Christianity is a contradiction within our constitution and a hindrance to better dialogue with our only bordering neighbour which happens to be mainly Muslim OR that tourism has never elevated a nation beyond its current status but merely constricts it's own opinions of itself and how the rest of the world views it (i.e. if you continuously advertise yourself as a nation of Christian reformed cannibals with a penchant for rugby and strange animals, that's all you'll ever be) OR EVEN that perhaps Papua New Guinea should become a republic with a presidential electoral system instead of the archaic Westminster system.

These are controversial topics that need to be debated and more importantly discussed, not meaningless drivel wherein the only appropriate response is, "Tru yah, mi no wanpela kago boi bilong ol!"

See my posts for examples of controversially uncommon topics up for frank discussion.
