Will we Hulis always be puppets of Exxon> are we capable of electing a REAL leader?

Exxon must be having a great time in PNG whenever there is trouble they've learnt they can just buy people off. Buy off the silence of the pollies, buy off the people with some compensation money or whatevers. Every Huli leader turns out to be a mouse in disguise, maybe speaking out against the resource plunderers in public but then making deals with them behind the scenes.
Any ideas out there what Huli leader would actually stand up to Exxon and not become their pamuk like all the rest of our leaders in recent past? Who amongst our people actually has the guts to give Exxon the boot if they continue to take advantage of us?
Look at how people live all around Hides if you don't believe that Exxon is the boss of the Huli people these days and the people are the humble tea boys and tea girls, willing to do anything Exxon asks them as long as they get their pamuk payments first. It is the most pathetic thing, here we have a world class resource project that will be running the whole country yet on our own land we're like poverty stricken peoples and begging Exxon for anything that falls off their big feast table inside the barbed wire fence.
