Topical wisdom from brave Fijian women that I admire (Letters to the Editor Fiji Rimes 4th December, 2008).
EVERYONE lies sometimes.
Young children sometimes have problems differentiating between telling fantasy from reality.
These children, however, do tend to have some psychological issues, which may range from lack of self-confidence or gregariousness.
But when adults continually lie and totally believe in their lie, it becomes pathological.
This is the problem with the regime and their military supporters.
First, it was the clean-up campaign.
Now, it's about them getting paid for what they "sacrificed" for our country.
Yes, we agree sacrifices have been made for our country but only the sacrifices made by true, courageous soldiers in past eras.
They fought for God and country, and upheld the Constitution without question.
The current crop should never, ever think we hold them too in the same high pedestal.
Because what you did is you robbed us of our rights to hope, to be successful, to be prosperous, to be financially secure, by lying and using your guns to threaten unarmed citizens and take over our democratically elected government in the name of "national development".
Stop the lies. Give us back our country and our elected leaders.
