Unfortunately for all of us, PNG will not change after the 2007 elections because the same people will be running the country whether we like it or not.
Those of us expressing our thoughts on this forum constitute less than 1% of the population of PNG. The 90% or so that are in the rural villages will make the same electoral mistakes that they have been making for the last 4 decades.
Successive governments know that an uneducated population will always remain ignorant therefore unable to make logical decisions. Today it costs parents more than K1,000 to send their children to high school. Most parents cannot afford this, so the majority of the next generation becomes half educated and unable to understand what is going on in PNG.
The solution to our problems by countless governments is to look north. Soon the entire country will be over-run by Asians. It is already happening in Madang and when that test case is complete, all of PNG will follow.
Unless some radical PNG political force is elected into praliament (and the chances of that are lower than the sky falling on our heads) we will not be any better off than we are now. That is my say.

That is a very true aspect. how the hell would we expect the country to change while the worst majority of our population, almost 99% are not educated to the level to understand the politics of the country. It seems that only those people who were educated ealier during the 80's and 90's are very fortunate. its an absolute fact that the twenty first generation of PNG are heading towards a disaster that will dump the rest of the population who can't afford education. Only those who are on the top will dominate the game and we grassroots will never have chance to get up to their level, dose'n matter how hard we try.
Rich people can live their lives comfortably while I can struggle to live by the streets looking for food and shelter every single day because I simly can't afford to continue my education though I have the brains.
Our society is really unfair, isn't it.
Its not a surprise we are heading down this direction, it is happening almost every where. If there is no change PNG is heading to a possible civil war in the near future. Heven na ground inoinap pinis yet na this will happen. there is a very high probability, just look at the tribal wars in the highlands of PNG and you will know what I'm trying to say here. we got the wapons you name it, if forigners and all those bull**** politics scandals still going on, they'll find their place to play thier game while we much in one fine day when the time comes.
Kaukau na Kumu stap. we will not die when the western life goes back to where it comes from.
Street mangi yeah!!! nocks bizzy. Just having my say.
Mangi blo pless.

Angra na Mangi Ya, I fully support your ideas and issues you both have raised here. Education is the key and if more pple are uneducated like in PNG, those educated ones will influence and manipulate the systems, well, everything and its happenening. TOO BAD, NOT MUCH ATTENTION AND SUPPORT IS GIVEN TO EDUCATION...WHY IS OUR GOVERNMENT DOING THAT, CAN'T THEY REALIZE THE ROLE PLAYED BY EDUCATION in building and developing a nation?
Angra, pls send ur letter (this one above) to editors for publication in the 2 daily papers. Its a very critical issue you have raised, makes sense and its so logic. Hope educated PNGans will read and be aware of the trend facing PNG.
