PNG is in transitional phase and our mentality is still tribal or regional and national identity is yet to be achieved. Our cultural heritage and mode of production is kin-based.

Education is the key to dismantle regionalism and create a national culture. If there is a fight in a university or high school, students take sides to join their regional groups rather than try to help solve problems between two people.

As educated people, we must reason out things and try to find out who is at fault and make reconciliation. Fighting between two drunken student over a minor thing can involve the whole institution because reason is not there.

Schools must study morality or ethics to avoid what is bad and do what is good. Only through education and praxis knowledge basing on true knowledge will reduce regionalism or tribalism and promote nationalism.
