    NIDS laudable, so let’s address the concerns

    It is with sadness that I extend my sincere sympathy to the family of the Most Honourable Edward Philip George Seaga. He was a Prime Minister about whom character and corruption were never mentioned in the same sentence, and whose intellect for understanding the ordinary Jamaican was one of...
  • Our broken windows need fixing

        Jamaica has a serious crime issue, and it is not relegated to one area of activity. We rank high on corruption, we rank high on the murder charts, we rank high on the rape/sexual abuse charts, we rank high on the drug trafficking charts and the list...

    Minister Tufton beware, the ‘Lootocrats’ are lining up

      I was listening to a BBC discussion that centered on Ethiopia’s economic performance and prospects going forward. The participants were really forthright in their comments, both supportive and critical. In the process I learned a new word that seems to be relevant to much of the world, and...
  • The Government we deserve

        Do people get the leaders they deserve? Does a joke country need a joke leadership? I lean towards not believing that. I like to believe that circumstances beyond the control of people often times lead to bad/joke leaders running a country. There are times, however, when I...

    Obfuscating the facts with the deafening noise of trivia

    It is very sad for me to write my last article before Christmas 2018 in a less than happy and hopeful way. It is a time of family, friends, the future, and faith, which we all look forward to. The four Fs remind us that, as citizens there is...

    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...

    Our mission: Develop a society where honesty and integrity supersede corruption and lawlessness

    In my previous article, I spoke to issues of storytelling as an effective way of communicating historical events, current events, and a basis for leading new thoughts for the future strategies needed for changes and improvements for Jamaica. However, storytelling is quite a different thing when compared with “suss”....
