Thanks Daniel. More than anything else, I think our country is better known for its educated wantoks getting rich at the expense of the illiterate.

PNG today as it is, in a nutshell, Ward.

I am drawn to the photo which must have been taken in the 1960s. Many women were dressed in much the same way as this mother who is certainly illiterate. She doesn't know which is best for her child - the Coke or the breast milk.

In the current PNG context - our leaders and top bureaucrats are all educated. They know what they are doing - deliberately feeding PNG with Coke and keep or siphon the nourishing milk to destinations beyond our shores.
