Let The Cockroaches Rule.
I'm still hopeful that there are more folk reading this who like to think outside the box and can offer their constructive thoughts to the world at large by joining the Jakartass group writing project
, co-sponsored by SBY.
Dilligaf of Hardship Posting
already has, although, a regular nag this, his site is updated far too infrequently for those of us who enjoy his musings.Rob Baiton
is an independent voice
offering an independent perspective on the law, politics, culture, people, and life in Indonesia and elsewhere - Carpe Diem!
He offers some very perceptive writings which are unfortunately very difficult to read. This site is almost psychedelic, with multi-coloured text on a black background, which is a shame because the opinions expressed are far from psychotic.
More relaxing is the Milk Tea Girl
who has two other blogs, In Memorium
and Dismantled Possessions
. She lives in south Jakarta and describes her interests as breathing, photography, coffee, hanging out, relaxing in the sun, writing, contemplating, observing and conversing quietly,
so all three blogs feature poems and short posts of fiction. Or is it all autobiographical? Anyway, I've given her a permanent link.
"Know your enemy" was probably said by a famous general, but it is a dictum to be understood by those who seek change, so I should've linked to Indo Law Report
a year or so ago, and not just because reciprocating is polite. It offers reviews on legislations, regulations and policies affecting your business in Indonesia
If there are so few of us prepared to challenge the status quo then this is an indication of atrophy and inevitable extinction.
So be it ~ let the cockroaches rule.
