    Two paths confront us: Which will we choose?

    Jamaica is in a brave new world, a type of world which we as humans have not lived in for 30 to 100 years. It hearkens back to the old days of a multi-polar world, or put in another way, a world which has more than one great power....

    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. He, more than most inspired black people, feels a pride which had long been slumbering due to centuries of non-stop exploitation and the accompanying brainwashing which is necessary to ensure that people are open...
  • Once more unto the breach

    The fact that we are here again witnessing the US, UK and France getting involved in the Middle East is both sad, disgusting, enraging and disheartening.

      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...
  • A case for collective farming

          Jamaican farming is crucial. There is no other way to put it. Farming is one of the nation’s key pillars. The sector employs thousands of people directly (and an even greater number indirectly) and is, as anyone who understands nations knows, a lynchpin in either the survival...

    Unions need to demand smart and in unison

    The past decade has seen public sector workers going through the ringer as it relates to pay. With the rate of inflation always in the back of one’s mind, the workers have had to endure a severe wage freeze or a wage increase so minuscule that when adjusted for...

    The more politicians promise change, the more things remain the same

    Change is a word that is always on politicians’ lips. Change is something that most if not all politicians promise and it is so not just because politicians enjoy hearing themselves speak or are stuck in a loop, it is because most times a serious change is visibly needed for...
