Indonesia itu bukan Bangsa yg hidup di abad ke-21, tapi Bangsa yg hidup di 21 abad sekaligus ~ Acep Iwan Saidi
There’s the urban people with highly formal educated and pragmatic living style with technology and social system which based on written contract and formal law, the 21st century style civilized world. They always change rapidly in a daily basis. The age of historic civilized world is 2014 years, until next 31 December.
There’s the mountain tribal group, even some of them are still living on trees, with traditionally educated and environmental based living style, with social system based on oral contract and custom law, the descendant of prehistoric society, it has happened since more than 5000 years ago, maybe older, and no significant change. Older than any historic eastern or western world, south or north world, we are the “middle earth” equatorial green belt, with fertile soil and nice land water.
And both of those society are living in the same country, similar time. No wonder there are so many potential horizontal conflict, everywhere, anytime, here. The country is what so called as “Indonesia”, so please understand those condition, then you’ll understand the drama.
