    So”¦ are we supposed to be ashamed by this?

    consider this:

    “personal contact- telephone ..”?? Uh ? meaning that we have to spend more time on the phone with to ngrumpi with our friends? – for the benefit of telecommunication companies!

    “political engangement- treaties “¦ “?? like signing a peace treaty ? which must mean that Indonesia must be at war with other countries before it could sign one.. a self defeating purpose isn’t it?

    “¦and what about the other 131 nations not included in this survey ? so we are not third last then.

    I think its about time for Indonesians to realise that we are unique in many ways and we do not have to conform to everything that is dictated by the west.

    “”¦globalization is the way of progress”¦i think, in this new decade, not wise if we reject great information such thoose. eventually, we still proud as Indonesian, coz we know not all of Indonesia’s are bad. think for the view, site, simple life”¦”

    i learn that facts or sheets is not important, not to bee sinistic but may value that and be humble to accept our literacies (i mean in globalization), and shall learn a great chance to change. we all human, are the most exegerable being that can transformed by changes, right?

    so, enjoy your Indonesianality”¦if i allowed to say that!!
