    Now is the time for serious land reform

    Land and the ownership of it is a touchy topic. From Scotland to Zimbabwe, the topic stirs many emotions and talking-points. From Guatemala to Vietnam we see where land reform can lead to violent conclusions. The situation in Jamaica is no different, where for centuries the topic of land,...

    Back to Africa

    Marcus Garvey is rightly lionized as one of the key figures behind the pan-African movement.

    The bigger picture in the CRH debacle

    With the recent scandal at the Cornwall Regional Hospital (CRH), the nation is up in arms. People are foaming at the mouth, rightly so, wondering why individuals —doctors and patients — were forced to occupy a hospital which was in such a bad condition. People are incredulous and rightfully...

  • Fertile ground for a third party

    A case for direct democracy

    Democracy is a word which stirs up many feelings in everyone. It is a simple word with a complex yet surprisingly simple meaning. The crudest way to describe democracy is people power. That is, the broad mass of the people have the ability to effect a change in their...

    HEADING FAST TO REBELLION

      Jamaica is in dire straits. With an economy that barely has a pulse, violent crime touching almost everyone, corruption rife and the people’s morale low, we can see where this island is looking into the eye of a hurricane. Things are made worse by the fact that we...
