Can Australia prevent Papua New Guinea becoming a failed state? : Comments

By Jeffrey Wall, published 29/4/2021

There are some key aspects of the PNG system of government that have definitely 'failed', but there remains time for PNG to pull back from being a total 'failed state'.

If we're going to worry about failed states, I would suggest the USA rather than PNG.

However as to PNG, it is and has always been an artefact of Australian handouts, end of story.

And for what? You're saying PNG people are inferior, correct? Yes? They are hopeless and failures, and need you to rush in and make things easier for them by getting the Australian government to take some of the income and property of Australians and give it to PNG? Yes? That's what you're saying? Take up the white man's burden? Yes? Correct?

So you don't believe in equality, and you don't believe in equality under law, and you don't believe in freedom, and you're a fascist? Yes? Correct? That's what you're saying, right?

How the born-to-rule mob keep identifying themselves as the ones to give everyone else orders, remains mysterious to me. Deadsh!t mindest and behaviour have a lot of explaining power.

Very generous of you to offer to share other people's property. Post PROOF of the proportion of your capital and income that you have VOLUNTARILY donated to "agriculture" in PNG.

And who is this "we" you keep talking about? You know, don't you, that it does not and cannot include anyone who disagrees with your political opinion?

And so ... what's the obvious next question?

My view on the subject is taken from the bottom of the ladder looking up, as opposed to this authors view from the top looking down.

My view tells me itís way too late to restructure an economy in shreds from the effects of COVID 19.

A little historical perspective taken from South American banana republics would spread some light on alternatives for survival.
The main income from drugs and drug running feature high on the list.

The next most precious source of income is from political corruption. China will be a big help with that source, and are obviously lined up to help out.

And for Australia to criticise the Chinese for doing so is, as we say, rank hypocrisy.

It's simply ludicrous for people with no concept of a common goal to tell others what to do !

It is only a question of time.
