Why struggle

10 March 2014

Dear Editor - I want to share my point of view concerning the heading, Why struggle’ might you people confuse of what I am trying to explain here.

Let me show you some countries where experience the same situation almost our country Solomon Islands experience today. Malawis and Ethiopias of this world, experiencing the mighty big bang of poverty and political era. Author Paul Collier said that these countries are not following the development path of most other nation; they are adrift.

As once-poor India and China and countries like them, surged ahead, the global poverty picture has been confused, concealing this divergent pattern.

Of course, for some countries to do relatively better others must do relatively worst; But the decline of the countries now at the bottom is not just relative; often it is absolute. Many of these countries are not just failing behind, they are failing apart.

The minority of developing countries that is now at the bottom of the global economic system.

The countries now at the bottom are distinctive not just in being the poorest but also in having failed to grow.

For the past 30 years Solomon Islands had experience much about the word corruption, I want to understand why corruption was increasingly concentrated in low-income Solomon Islands. Paul Collier stated that. Malawi has been conflict-free for its entire post independence history, yet it still has not developed.

Solomon Islands is regarded as the developing country; why we still struggle as Malawi and the other countries in the world today.

Today, the team is progress of working on the Federation system, where it invite freedom and more power for the respective indigenous communities to legislate and engage on things they think are good for their respective states. The question is, how can we deal with the psychopaths leaders?

What I meant here is, these are the people who shot their way to power or sometimes crooks who have bought it.

To find the solution of corruption, we can crack it by building a unity of purpose. To build a unity of purpose, thinking needs to change, not just within the developing agencies but among the wider electorates, whose views shape what is possible. Without an informed electorate, politicians will continue to use the bottom billion merely for photo opportunities, rather than promoting real transformation.

To encapsulate, another fine example for us to learn from it is, Switzerland, which does not plant cocoa but has the chocolate of the world.

In its little territory they once raise animals and plant the soil during 4 month per year. Not enough, they produce diary products of the best quality.

It is a small country that transmits an image which security, order & labour which made it the world’s strong safe. What did we do about Solomon Islands brothers, are we let it go? What is our plan? Find the answers for these two questions.

 Brothers, what I think here is not possible from your thinking, but it just a mere warning and signal. Thank you friends. God Bless Solomon Islands.
