Response to Re: How can we solve our problems?

You must be joking,
plenty of countries have mountains like PNG, if not higher.

The only thing unique about PNg is that someone want "Compensation" for every inch of road (or Whatever) Built. This is what is unique, and also stops many projects form getting off the ground. To say PNG does not have the wealth to do this, is also laughable. It has. Just the money goes elsewhere.

If the people have the will, it will be done. However, I don't think the majority have the will. They may complain, but they prever their isolated villages. That way they can ignore the outside world. Be warned - the world is there and will not go away. Ignore it at your peril. King Canute failed in trying to turn the tide back, too.

Insularity is death......Ralph.
