@mumbles - I don't think we are cowards. We are just human. if faced between 2 choices, a normal person would select the easiest choice.
For PNG right now, no matter what is happenning in politics and the corruption that is increasing, the people still have an option of doing nothin. That is an easy choice. They still get to eat their rice and tinned fish - it may be more expensive but we still manage.
When there is no option, then you will see the anger, courage of the people.
It may be the case that now is not the time. Even revolutions happen when the time is right. When all the major factors are aligned.
