A very interesting analysis of nation building based on intelligent observations.
I am not about to argue with your analysis, rather to add more “confusion into the quagmire” so to speak.
The human being’s endeavors toward the perfect society is probably the ultimate pursuit, if we begin with the attempts by those such as the Greeks per recorded history, and then the religious movements
Looking at the bikpla piksa, humanity is MCult.. And like you argue, that is probably the bane of order in governance.
Recent evidences make the whole pursuit even more challenging! Take the nation/sate of Israel which is trying to be Mono-cultural with its history, demographics and its geography. And then look at the Balkans!. Then look at the current world super power the USA!... all with their gutplas and their noguts.
Somehow, I feel that mipla lo PNG igat sans lo kamap gutpal yet! Blong wanem, yumi MCult, but yumi ken learn from those above and the west (and their trials and mistakes.
Maybe we (PNG) are the ones to get it right and teach the world?! Yupla yet skelim!
Key: Mi ting em education. Of course we have the resources which many people are beginning to conclude are a curse, however why are these resources not blessings? Olsem na mi ting olsem the onus is up to us (PNG sumatins). Decent and appropriate education in stewardship is essential. That should be the primary focus of the government of the day so that mipla ol sumatin ken be the managers and executers of these resources for the common good!
I admit all that sounds cliquese…but I think that’s the solution!
