The salutation to Mother Nature with her unbounded love and divine taste of fair
and care in the ...natural logos... of our universe - i.e. the logic of beauty,
unity and order between human beings and the physical surroundings - may be
considered as the highest climax in positivity that culminates the prolific
dialogue by Payne, Mokofisi, Moimoiangaha, Mafi Amerika Samoa and Ma...u Leka ...i
Lolofonua. My Tongan comrades, I'm very impressed with the dialogue throughout,
and well done for providing fertile thoughts on a fascinated and extremely
crucial issue regarding controversially environmental matters in our Motherland
- a worthwhile discussion that should be acknowledged, and perhaps further
materialized in working projects however.
Generally, the argument on how us human beings ...can balance out... the ...imbalanced
occurrences... being induced by different complicated human endeavours (perhaps
illusions also) and technological mechanisms in the world of Mother Nature
seems to be the quintessence of the dialogue also. This dialogue is an old-aged
argument on how we can maintain the beauty, unity and order of the natural
logos of Mother Nature, while at the same token generating and perpetuating
activities for our human existence and survival, namely in the names of
tradition, culture, custom, and to a great extent ...the best and permanence in
human thoughts and tongues... as in Mathew Arnolds....
How our complex world with us on the peak of ...human-smart nuclear development...
and ...know-how electronic precision... can cope with the underlining core of
...survival of the fittest... in this continuing world of depletion and destruction
of Mother Nature? Is this due largely to outer-space capitalism, utilitarian
education and sectarian democracy with their satellite and military fanaticism
on one hand? On the other hand, the idealistic principles to live in secured
health and welfare systems of ego-individualism has urged us to guarantee that
we can still live in luxury and comfort ways within a depleting world that is
falling apart, and absorbing back into the sun and its hotness. As the celtic
phrase flows, ...We originated from the sun and we will be back into its womb....
I...m being reminded by your enthralled dialogue about the chief theme of human
life in Western-Eastern ethical history with philosophers and gurus attempt to
provide us with meaningful and accurate answers on how to live happily, freely
and wisely over the ages. How can we bring in concert unto us, and natural
logos of Mother Nature, the virtues of happiness, freedom and wisdom together
with the related peaceful life of tranquillity? If our environment is depleted
and destructed, even uncleaned and unhygienic, can we say that this is a
reflection, we are no longer in unity and order with Mother Nature and the
natural logos of our universe. Whose blunders then in the case of our
Motherland Tonga with regard to the issue in hand? No one is to be blamed at
this point in time I may suggest.
All you guys have beautifully outlined the ...problems... and the ...solutions...
respectively. How ...can we practically connect... the former with the latter
strategically is the question. To be or not to be some concrete actions must be
conducted from abroad to help our ...kainga... in the homeland on the global and
ecological issue in stake, my fellow Tongans. I...m certain that most of you have
better human and technological resources with higher know-how maxims on this
matter than many in Tonga, and you can possibly put together an unified
organization there in the USA with working projects to initiate and lead the
...first environmental movement from Tongans abroad... in our Kingdom.
