we need a strong leaderMarch 30 2010 at 2:42 PM
my fellow papua new guineans, after almost thirty five long years of independence we still find ourselves in the same, if not worse, place our parents and grandparents saw themselves at independence. law and order has grown worse, development and the better welfare of our neediest people promised by our leaders has not yet arrived and our leaders are now more corrupt than when they began public office. in fact the go as far as to legislate laws to protect themselves when and if they find themselves on the backfoot. our country has not only grown weak but we have lost all the values of our great societies that where present before the white man came. ladies and gentlemen, to allow ourselves to fall so low is despicable and i must admit i am ashamed. we need a strong leader..
a strong man of pure heart. one whose only ambition is to improve the livelihoods of people. to restore a sense of respect for the law. to restore the pride we had at independence. i speak as if such a person may exist and my confidence that such a person may exist is decreasing more and more as i continue to see how bad our country is becoming.
so i think we should at least tolerate the idea of secession. if you are of the idea that our country may have passed the line of no return, then i urge you not to pass up the idea as stupid but to think how your people may benefit from such an undertaking. we are a strong people and as we are strong, we must also be smart. if you think our country has a chance do your bit to help.
i still think that papua new guinea must be given the chance to atone for its sins but at what cost to the ordinary people. should we wait another 35 years.
i end this in a favourite statement of mine.....
"dont think how your country/govt can help you. think how you can help your country/govt create an environment whereby you as an individual or community can improve and further yourselves..
long live our people.... AVE PAPUA

Those great people out there. Start working on your family, then your tribe and then neigbours. If 50 men in a district could do that, we are talking about change of attitude in 25000 people. So we still have chance to make a difference.

i for one think that the line of no return has been crossed. PNG doesnt belong to us anymore. it belongs to the corrupt Somare's in govt.. i fully concur with your point regarding the question of whether waiting another 35 years is in the best interests of our people. 35 years has come and gone with no improvement whatsoever and so the question of secession in my opinion is one that carries a lot of weight.
It has been reported that jullias chan has been pushing for an autonomous NGI's. to him i say i good on you. papua new guinea has done nothing and the trend will continue to occur. even on this site, i have read criticism towards him and though he may be an arsehole, i give him credit for the foresight he has displayed.
papua new guinea is a failure and no matter what happens it will always continue be so until the people do not know what poverty is..........
