Davui (triton) and crown of thorns starfish

from w
The predator of the crown of thorns starfish that does so much damage to coral reefs is the Fijian davui - or triton.
When we look at this as a metaphor, the 'clean up' davui is destroying the crown of thorns starfish to bring health back to the reef - or
the davui should be getting rid of those who are currently creating havoc in Fijian society over the past two weeks.
Two points of view...

I won't debate politics with you, but the analogy is a good one either way.
I just hope the "ecosystem" can come into healthy balance.

What a beautiful picture.

Yeah, it's not the time for an argument or even long lists of why this or why that. One of the Fiji forums is full of spite and nonsense.
The human eco-system and the reef are both in need of good health.
