Thundering Waters - Paradise Proposal is more than it appears. This whole proposed development serves as a wake up call to ALL at all levels. People are being presented with an "illusion of growth"- but people are also being asked to decide what they are willing to sacrifice at the expense of that growth. Are more condos, more houses, more shops, more hotels, more tourist attractions worth more than an ecosystem that has taken hundreds of years to grow; worth more than the endangered species that live there; worth more than what remains of the forests unique to this region? What is the promise of growth really worth? Regardless of the identity of the developer, is it worth sacrificing all of what is precious so that some individual may extend their avarice and greed to possess, destroy what Nature has nurtured? Does any one individual have the right to do so? Will an additional 10,000 people who may inhabit that precious land in the future compensate for the permanent destruction of land which is truly priceless? Do we accept the illusion or do we say "Enough is enough"?
