    Well the one eye man is indeed king of blind island..after convincing the blind islanders that government should be the main employer of people, the 1 eye man says the private sector ,namely the hotel industry, is needed,to rescue blind island people from poverty. The 1 eye man knows that the opposition is totally blind and deaf ,so, he continues to do as he pleases. Blind islanders are more convinced than ever that the blind opposition gets it’s queue from the 1 eye leader ,so, it won’t be hard for the manipulative 1 eye king to convince blind islanders that he’s got 2020 vision.Our story is one where the vision less is convincing the his misguided flock,that the ocean is the best source of drinking water ,and , the opposition ,in agreement is helping the one eye leader by putting more salt, into the ocean.
