The Rooster Dilemma. Part 2.

It’s a wake-up call.

I am sad that foreigners who come to Bali Indonesia wish to push their stubbornness onto the locals. It is upsetting to me that this entitled behavior is sneaking up on Indonesia. 

Bali and Indonesia in general do not need this snobbish behavior. No, do not bring your politically correct bullshit here. I hate the fact that certain entitled people want to change Bali. People come to Bali to escape the crazy political correctness in Western countries. 

I feel that this is not progress.

Voicing an opinion about something is one thing. Go ahead and say what you want but do not push your agenda onto locals. Do not try to go and change history, tradition, and the way of life. 

If you don’t like it, leave!

I have touched on this subject a few times. No one is forcing any visitors to come here. No one is forcing groups or individuals to conform, transform or assimilate to the lifestyle here. 

Indonesia, stand strong and run your system the way you want it.

I am tired of these people… What’s next? Thousands of motorcycles scoot around Bali. There are traditional ceremonies that shut down roads and create havoc. 

Going to Canggu and some areas of Seminyak is torturous because of traffic and congestion. That is Bali. So do not go and try to change things when you do not live here. 

You as an individual chose to come to Bali. You came here to enjoy Bali and not to upset people. Do not force your way onto others because you are inconvenienced. 

In a nutshell. 

Come to Bali and enjoy Bali for what it is. Enjoy the quirks and uniqueness of this special place called Bali. If you do not like your location or your particular situation change your location or do not ever come back. 

There is no point to complain and cause problems in the Banjar or the community because you are an entitled asshole. Sure, the roosters and the noise they make may drive you nuts. Sure you get woken up at 4 am but you are the visitor here. 

So get yourself some earplugs and shut the #$%^ up! 

I am sorry… I have been coming here for decades. I have experienced much more in Indonesia than most people. I support the locals because I have had very pleasant and very good experiences here. I do not want to see this influx of negativity attacking the way of life here.

He took on the challenge to be the COO for MD Pictures and get back into the entertainment business. The entertainment business opened up the desire to write once more and the words began to flow onto the pages again. He decided to rewrite a book he began years ago. Organ House was reborn and is a fiction suspense novel while Scars is a young adult drama focused on life’s challenges. After the first two books, his desire to write not only became more challenging but enjoyable as well. After having several books completed he was convinced to publish them for your enjoyment. Zsolt does not tend to stay in one specific genre but tends to lean towards strong female leads and horror. Though he also has a few human interest books, he tends to write about whatever brews in his brain for a while.
