I have been reading the Nasty Bali site with interest after picking up the link from the postings below. What a disturbing and very distressing account of the many injustices and corruptions that are going on.
Mark, I admire the stand that you've taken on the many issues raised and wish you success in bringing about some long overdue changes and a correction to the wrongs that have and are being done.
It makes you shake your head in dismay and feel so much sympathy for those caught up in it all.
In spite of it all the Balinese for the most part manage to rise above it and maintain a kind, generous and optimistic outlook. The many honest and wonderful people who make Bali such an interesting and worthwhile place to visit deserve ongoing support in any way that people can offer. Someone with the courage and committment to set the wheels in motion, to weed out the rot, seems to be what is needed as the Balinese are quite powerless in many ways. To threaten the lives of ones family is a very effective method of control.
All the best Mark.
