The Javanese missionary pastors were passed by. Naturally, from the end of the 1950s, whenever the problem of the growing imbalance of the Javanese and Dutch input was discussed, the recurrent and important question was: what caused and perpetuated this process? Basically, the question was answered in two ways. Two kinds of argumentation and analysis evolved, each implying a distinct policy perspective. The first line of argument blamed the Javanese context for the financial disparity: the Sukarno government’s inability to overcome the lasting economic crisis, the abject poverty especially in the rural areas, increasing pressure on the budget of the Javanese church because of its expanding membership particularly in the mid-1960s, etc.
Accordingly, the point of view shifted. The notion of a struggle for power, with a variety of power sources and weaponry and with corresponding distinctions between winners and losers, gradually lost its conceptual relevance. There were no ‘winners’. Perhaps the most important characteristic of the policy game played by all these actors was the impossibility to keep events in check. I became aware of the essential and pervasive contingency which clung to the policy process. Another stint of fieldwork in Central Java during the 1980s greatly strengthened the feeling that essential powerlessness and contingency were thoroughly interwoven with the policy process.
