Response to TST
Most comments here are either racist or stupid. They do not depict any substance. All we do is blame the Asians for our lack of ability to run our country well with honesty and transparency. We call ourselves Christians and the country is littered with churches but we are dishonest, selfish, corrupt, lack sense of respect..etc etc. The people that came from different parts of Asian had worked so hard to come this far. They didnt drink all their money and wait for another landowner royalites from a mine. They see PNG as a land of opportunity because we simply cannot successfully run a chain of large retail shops. We have been given that opportunity since 1975. You can be a lawyer, doctor, or have a PhD in whatever, but you simply cannot run a shop. Accept that.
We jump up and down and cry because we see others being successful. If Tan of TST was a highlander, the coastals would be crying foul. We cry beause we cant help outselves. Can you all go do something worthwhile? As someone suggested, choose leaders that are honest and transparent and respect the rule of law. The Asians are playing by our rules. We are the ones that set the rules, but because we dont respect these rules, why do you expect others (Asians etc) to respect them? To put it in the other way....Asians are dancing to our music, they seem to like it and becoming good at it. In short, if these Asian become honest and transparent they will not survive in PNG...In other words (and in a Darwinian tone)..they are trying to survive in an environment that is harsh and changing rapidly. Yes..survival of the strongest and fittest....
Best wishes to you all
