Business and culture

by ‘Okusitino Mahina


Diffused throughout the globe

Are the many beliefs of Europe

Sprinkling over the Friendly Isles

Scattering yet uncompromising

Overflowing yet tempting

 

There is a string of systems

Of economics mixed with politics

Of communism with oligarchy

Of facism as a rule of tyranny

Of capitalism with democracy

Business and culture

They co-exist yet oppose

One, the ideology of individualism

The other, a theory of collectivism

Resolved only by time and space

 

Chorus:

But, what is your say?

Make your judgement

Acquired only through sacrifice

Should you seek harmony

It is in the land of peace
