Maldivians are “the monkeys evolution forgot to evolve” and the Makunudhoo island folk “may have a dozen nuts for brains”. This, Simon says, speaking about “the stupidity of the Maldivian mentality, even in this day and age.”
Simon expressed these opinions while addressing the issue of Mass Hysteria on Makunudhoo Island. I could not help noting the tone of Simon’s argument; yet I agree I maybe biased toward those statements because I am a Maldivian, however “unproud” I maybe of that. Some of us have birthright wealth and the most expensive plots of land, just by virtue of their fathers and grandfathers. And this also happens to be the only colateral that any financial institution in the country would accept even for short term funding of SMEs.
It is very easy to think ill of others, yet very difficult to look inwards at oneself. Because science is without emotion and feelings, which are the qualities that make the creatures which poplute Planet Earth human!
