I'm looking at it from a cultural and religious identity point of view. Equally, I don't think we should be under any misapprehensions that having our own land will automatically solve all our problems. The people will have a huge role to play in increasing prosperity. Loafing around on motorbikes with no purpose, or holing yourself up doing nothing but paath all day isn't going to elevate the nation.
I think it is more to have your own sovereignty and have control over your own affairs.
Our people need some political entity to fall back on.
What I have learnt is that it is no point having economic power if you cannot have political power to go with it.
