Last time, it was a rule change that prevented the black caps to go all the way. This time, perhaps the toss with a binary outcome. There is a beautiful island down South where less than 6 million people live. There, leaders are born every day from Jacinda Ardern to Kane Williamson, who make the World great again. There, gentlemen and gentlewomen make the World go around and give belief for the rest.
Such is the power of a few million people, their quite charm defines what humanity could get to in the future. An advanced society, an anathema for the rest of the World, save Scandinavia and Netherlands, it defines culture and inclusion. There the Sun rises in the East and sets in the West, but not anything else remains the same. The Ozone hole that opened up above it by the activities of the 8 billion, led them to peril with kids not allowed to go out and play. A genuine free-market economy that has climbed to the top 50 in aggregate GDP, was never led by criminals, charlatans and religious prophets. Healthcare, education and citizenship are not reserved for the privileged and crime is nearly non-existent.
There is a beautiful island down South that deserves accolades, but I suspect they are not worried about it.
