The strange bedfellows that make the Fijian Gleichschaltung
Gleichschaltung (DEFINITION: Coined in the Nazi era, it is the shifting of an entire society according to a predetermined clearly defined world-view, or dictatorial philosophy to facilitate riding roughshod over society deliberately and systematically destroying existing traditional societal structures and critics , including the abolition of the middle class/ academia so that every form of independent activity such as media freedom and association was controlled by the State.The aim is to strike petrified fear into all and sundry and get abject compliance in all things)
The Fijian Gleichschaltung began when Kaiyum's vindictive practical pursuit of his sunset clause theory for the Fijian culture began, and Bainimarama's love of money and thirst for power met.
All aspects of life in Fiji now fall under the absolute leadership of these two fiends and their cohorts. Like the two symbiotic parasites they are this is a marriage made in parasitic heaven.
A confession, and bit of history
I knew Bainimarama personally for many years.
As young people growing up in Suva, those were adventurous days, and Bainimarama stood out in our crowd for many inapt reasons.
First a massive chip on his shoulder about not being of Fijian blue blood or of Fijian full blood. He was immensely envious of those who had blood ties to the great Chiefly lineages and had a thing about wanting to be better than 'them'.
Second, always wanting to be the Big Man, and the Leader of this team and that project, and absolutely hating any opposition to his ideas.
