we don’t get easily fooled after we see something with our own eyes. (part 2)

there is another person replied my comment. i replied his message not to make him understand because i knew from his first message that he knows the full story but intentionally telling lies. but i did it in hope i can tell the whole truth and shape the consciousness among other readers.

he : It is beyond idiotic to call this development. In truth it is the opposite- destruction. 
And do you seriously think it benefits the community?? The palm oil owners are filthy rich, the workers are hardly paid enough to eat on a daily basis.Their drinking water is polluted, the air is filthy of smoke from the factory,and from the constant burning of rain forest. These are natives that once lived happily of the land,consuming only what they needed for survival, and now they have been forced from their homes into servitude for a handful of disgusting Chinese capitalists that have bribed the forestry department to be allowed to cut down every last tree left standing. To be clear - it is not benefiting the community,not benefiting the people, and it is certainly not development. I spent the last month on Borneo talking to villagers, and seeing the destruction with my own eyes. 
I know they don`t teach you about this stuff in Malaysia...but take the time to open your eyes, and learn about how your country is failing its responsibilities to nature,and to its people.

me : and what do you do to make things better? wait! i'm so sorry but i think you've got me wrong. please read my comment for Ashok Joshi. of course, i despise those people who made the so called development in my own land. even though your comment is quite out of focus which is generally about the environment pollutions, they are true. and i’m disgusted with the way it happens. but what am i saying is about the purpose of this issue which is to talk down to palm oil.

sorry about my bad english. 'they are true' in the above sentence referred to the environment pollutions that happens in some places in Malaysia. not all the statements that the guy gave. anyway, it is certainly out of the question of this issue.

he : I guess I do what I can...I help spread awarness, I`ve contributed money towards campaigns against palm oil importers, I check the label of everything I buy to make sure there is no palm oil, I have been volunteering for animal charities...If people decrease their demand for palm oil products, and the "BIOFUELS" are made irrelevant then the general demand for Palm oil would be drastically cut,and there would be a chance of preserving what little is left of the forest.

me : so, what sort of vegetable oil will the local people consume and at the same time preserving forest? corn oil? flower seed oil? what oil? see, that’s the point. it’s not about WHAT we plant, but HOW we plant. when-exactly-did you live in borneo? for your information, we’re no longer do deforestation. what we do now is replantation. cut down old oil palms that are no longer productive, and plant the new ones WITHOUT CUT DOWN ANY SINGLE TREE IN THE FOREST. i’m sorry to say that you have to accept that your opinion is so last century. and about the biofuels that we made from palm oiI, i bet you’ll crawl to my country one day when the amount of petroleum left down there is not even one drop. from all your answers, beyond the shadow of a doubt i believe you are the ‘certain group of people’ that I mean.

you act like you really care about the forest. of course you care. care about the forest by denying human right. my country produce palm oil that is far cry cheaper than other vegetable oil on earth which be the most affordable vegetable oil to people in many poor countries and developing countries. by producing palm oil, my country can always help them. see, you don’t care about poor people because you're not poor (i believe) and you don't know how does it feel to be poor. in fact, you don’t even care about the forest. the thing is, you are afraid of your own shadow.
