They’re not superior

Re: Democracy, church and state

Very good letter. Thomas King, a North American aboriginal, writer and intellectual states, “Christianity/church is the gateway drug to supply capitalism”. 

These institutions are imposed on indigenous and many other cultures, with disastrous results, along with the notion that the British democratic/ liberal economic systems are superior. 

They are not superior. Then when you get the likes of the P.M. and the H.R.P.P who try to manipulate the British democratic system and the fa’asamoa system to take advantage of the people, then it is very problematic for the unsuspecting people.
