  • Why Christianity is dying

      What’s going on with Christianity? More specifically, what is going on with the major traditional sects of Christianity and why is it that they are visibly dying? Why is it that this religion of two millennia, the major sects which count billions as their members, the religion which...

    Jamaica not immune from the far right

    The past few years have seen a massive surge in support for far-right, crypto-fascist politicians and parties. Election results from India to The Philippines, from Germany to Italy and most notably the USA in 2016 have elevated candidates with reprehensible ideologies to the highest offices in their respective lands....

    Don’t blame politicians, blame the society that breeds them

    Politicians — everyone loves to hate them. They are hated because they constantly engage in acts contrary to the will of the people; they are made butt of jokes because they do extremely daft things, and we rail against their acts of incompetence because they affect us directly. We...

We see the pandering all the time: works given out to supporters, glib comparisons about whose party is the most corrupt and the demeaning of both themselves and their supporters with their actions on the campaign...

    No art for art’s sake

    Art has a purpose. It is to act as an expression and extension of humanity and the human experience. This much is obvious, listen to any song, read any novel or view a painting and one can oftentimes feel what the artist is striving for (more so if the...

    Equitable distribution of tourism profits

    Jamaica is a land with many riches and quite a few rich people. However, the country remains desperately poor. It is a land where the biggest net earner is probably the illegal drugs and black market trade followed by remittances, then tourism. We are a people who are, in...
