• Bali's shorelines need to be preserved as places of public access and mutual enjoyment, not only to ensure the island's future sustainability as a tourism destination, but, also, as an absolute guarantee that the Balinese will be able to hold traditional rites and rituals celebrated since time immemorial on the island's shorelines.
• Bali also has developers who have come to paradise with the firm conviction that they can improve on God's handiwork, now, if only the Balinese would stay out of their way, and allow developers to get on with their job.

Cry, the beloved island.
