Re: The issue of competition
I agree stupidpalagi. I too am interested in my Samoan husband’s traditional society and I choose Samoa because of him as well that I am disillusioned with the global system that exploits the poor nations and its people for the accumulation of wealth by a few.
In other words I believe capitalism and the privatization of land as a commodity is a huge failure because of its very poor record in distributing wealth equitably amongst all the world.
You may think different than I do on that but I think we feel the same about some other things. Keeping land from the colonizers who want to privatize all land is the only way Samoans can keep their autonomy.
