    Regional integration could mean moving to Guyana and Suriname

    CARICOM, as is, is dead. It is going nowhere fast. What with all the animosity, regional tension, economic tension and social tensions, CARICOM as it relates to harmonising and developing relationships throughout the region, is dead. The sad reality is that in spite of our common history and shared...

    Jamaica can get rid of Classism if….

    Jamaica has a lovely motto ‘Out of many, one people’ which implies that despite our racial differences we have come together in a large melting pot creating the Jamaican culture.This mixed culture provided us with many things such as food, music and dance but this, in many ways, hides...

    If Jamaica is to truly fight crime

    Over the past year the nation has been hollering for action to stem the seemingly irreversible rise in crime. After years of seeing the crime rate (led by murders) decline – coincidentally after Dudus was extradited and a heavy military/police presence was evident – we have seen crime rise...

    Tax system is too corrupt!

      On the face of it, people really hate taxes, especially in Jamaica and similar countries where corruption is viewed as endemic. No one likes going to the pumps or supermarket and paying that GCT. We are especially upset when we see taxes attached to essential items such as...

    Let’s save the world

      The world is hurtling fast towards the abyss and no one seems able to save us. We have taken this beautiful world, filled for the most part with lovely persons, and trashed it, thrown it all away for a few dollars and trinkets. When one looks at the...
