Some of us have discovered on the way, that in all the different types of social dance environments on the Island, the elites evolve. A small group naturally because we cannot all be superior.
"Political language. . . is designed to make lies
sound truthful and murder respectable, and to
give an appearance of solidity to pure wind."
Much of it evolves upon arrival in the Gold levels of dance. The dancers at this level have gone through a long and sometimes difficult journey to get to where they are. They feel the need for recognition and many exercise it by looking down their noses at those who have not arrived at their stations.

They are more like the foundation where it all starts, without which no functional level activity in the world can progress. So we hold the ordinary dancer as topline and make them visible as there are fewer dancers up the hierarchy/pinnacle.
Plenty of dancers in this territory just waiting to make
their own club, nearer to the heart's desire.
The most vital balance that holds the entire kuleana is the buoyancy from all these people. Recognition should be more for the bottom line than the topline but many use the word "support" for the purpose of loyalty and retention. So we lives and we learns.
