This is an extract from a new PNG blog entry, indeed it is the first post on a new blog – The Edebamona BLOG by Nou Vada, a Law Student and prolific writer.
Nou is skeptical about what can be achieved by those who want to see change. Are they grounded in reality or do they have grandiose delusions? He writes:
“In a country like Papua New Guinea, it is easy to get disillusioned. From my own experience I can say that this happens because forerunning the disillusionment is delusion. And there are a great number of delusional people and groups in Papua New Guinea who think change is easy. They have a habit of oversimplifying complex human problems and then romanticizing about the solutions to these problems. I should know. I was one of them.”
My response to Nou is that as someone who studies Law, does he believe in the change many would like to see? That is the proper enforcement of the Constitution and the laws of the land. The fundamental problem with PNG is not “LAW and Order problems” rather a problem of Order in society because LAWs aren’t enforced or adhered to as they should be.
