An era begins in Tonga

The King of Tonga, Taufa’ahau Tupou IV, has died in a New Zealand hospital at the age of 88 after a long illness. BBC

There are few monarchy and of these less hierarchy. Tonga’s King has crossed only one of many bridges in his unique local and global life, if indeed there are such metaphor in the heart of Tonga.

Much of the region may be up for grabs now. Not merely after signature contracts and agreements may fail to convert into the future, but also because more than one generation owns plans that have waited patiently and impatiently to gain influence.

It’s critical to be fair.

All dealing must be fair. Commercial pioneers that have enjoyed the King’s surety must invent new arrangements that are fair.

Local agitants must be fair.

Fairness is the one good activity for Tonga.
