ACT OR FOREVER HOLD YOUR PEACE AND DIE SLOWLY

by JAMES MAKOP

I have written so many times about the dangers of inaction. My urgings have attracted many ridicule and insults.

When I warned that Peter O’Neill threatened the very democracy of the Nation, people took no notice.

When I warned that the country would be brought to economic ruin, no one took it seriously.

What people fail to see are these facts.

1. PNG is now a Failed State. That is evident in the fake budget paper, public servants such as Isaac Lupari giving directions contrary to the Attorney General, a person elected by his people to represent them as a politician, arbitrarily borrowing to shore up ongoing expenditures, and forcing SOEs such as Kumul Holdings to borrow money so as to pay dividends to the government.

2. No one cares for you. The multi-national companies are having a field day. This is the kind of environment they thrive in. No rule of law, no questions asked, no oversight. Just pay the politicians to gain access, pay corrupt officials to turn a blind eye and business is roaring.

3. In the absence of the rule of law, illegal aliens stream in to exploit the system. Land alienation is occurring on a grand scale, SMEs reserved for Nationals are now a thing of the past, and Triads and other international criminals are finding fertile ground in our country.

4. THE WORST THING IS THOSE ASIANS CONDUCTING BUSINESS AT SME LEVELS ARE LITERALLY KILLING OUR PEOPLE!!! THEY SELL FAKE FOOD PRODUCTS, ROTTEN FOOD, RECYCLED FOOD, AND FOOD EVEN PEOPLE IN OTHER COUNTRIES WOULD NOT FEED THEIR DOGS.
ARE YOU WAITING FOR THEM TO ACTUALLY ACT IN A MANNER THAT FITS YOUR DEFINITION OF KILLING SUCH AS GUN YOU DOWN OR HACK YOU WITH A MACHETE BEFORE YOU ACT?

I am fed up of wasting my previous breath talking to a bunch of people who cannot stand up for what is right. They prefer to moan pitifully like sheep lead to slaughter, praying for divine intervention or a handful of politicians such as Juffa, Kramer and Bird to come to their rescue.

You have to meet them halfway. Do your part. If they call for action, THEN ACT! As a belated new year resolution, I am going to stop being concerned for a people who will not act in their own interest. I have better things to do and I will enjoy my life looking in from the outside.

I wish you all a decisive 2019.
