it gets sadder and sadder Posted Feb 21, 2012 10:52 PM
With the Tari airstrip compensation payment, the payment was made to LOs in POM who (of course) didn't share a thing with the LO relatives back in Tari. And that's the problem. Whether it's an ILG, a clan, or a family, greed has taken over and nobody shares. Thus, everyone expects the government to do the work to ensure equity, instead of forcing relatives to learn how to cooperate with each other. The LOs want the government to pay each LO individually and divide ILGs until each ILG consists of only 1 member, which frankly isn't cost-effective.
Things will get worse. More and more people are learning how to fake geneology and land claims, thus more and more people who shouldn't be getting any money at all are railroading their way into the treasury.
