Hi Local motion,
How is Hawaii these days, been there two times on Oahu&Maui.
Only wanted to say that i was last oktober in Bali for 1 month, and that i find it very sad that such a beautifull country is runned by corrupted people.
Bali is not a country.....
People were even scared to talk about politics and the muslims(fanatics)
Which people?...I think people now ( in Indonesia) do have more freedom of speech....
On the other hand corruption is normal in these kind of poor countries, its a way of life to earn an extra $.
Excuse me? If you refer Corruption is normal in Indonesia.. well I disagree.! I would not say it was normal, but pretty high..that sounds more appropriate!!
Can only say if that country with al of its possibilities was located in europe it would be a rich country and that every person would have a worthy life.
Nothing's wrong for being Ethnocentrism*! But location would only take a small part to build a better (oh you say rich) country..other example: say you live in Belgium, will that make you think you are worthy than Japanese people who live in Japan? who would believe that other than yourself?!
-------articles----- very interesting....
AMSTERDAM — A horse was killed on Tuesday night in a small town near Rotterdam after it was seriously sexually assaulted, police have confirmed.
A police spokesman said the horse had been raped both anally and vaginally with an unknown object. The animal is also believed to have been stabbed several times.
The horse — identified as five-year-old mare — was penned in a pasture in Lekkerkerk, near Rotterdam. Police are investigating the incident and are trying to track down witnesses.
In March, MPs reacted with shock as a man escaped prosecution for raping a pony in Utrecht because he had not broken the law.
Dutch Agriculture Minister Cees Veerman has since confirmed he will examine the possibility of making sex with animals a criminal offence. Currently it is only
a crime if the animal sustains serious injury. A majority of MPs are in favour of criminalising all forms of bestiality.
Meanwhile, investigations continue into a case in which three asylum seekers were kidnapped in Belgium and forced to have sex with both men and animals in a farm shed in the village of Kraggenburg, near Lelystad.
The women were beaten and photographed while performing the sexual acts. Police have detained at least six men and three women, but further arrests have not been ruled out.
Is that worth of life???
Ethnocentrism is based on the assumption that one's own way of life
is superior to all others.
