  • 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...
  • Strong reflections needed on our self-inflicted wounds

            Although we live in a small country of less than 5,000 sq. miles, and many onlookers would be tempted to accept a view of homogeneity, to do so would be a great mistake for this our island home, Jamaica. The collective descriptions and positioning belie...

    Don’t make the mistake of staying silent

    Happy First Year Anniversary to publicopinion.news and I wish you further growth in the future. It has been a roller coaster for my 25 articles but it has been enjoyable. Some people who would like to write on topical issues and current events should take the opportunity of adding...
  • The state of our democracy: why corruption is a ‘gendered’ issue! [Part I]

    Currently, the Government of Jamaica (GOJ) is trying to push through ‘The Integrity Commission Bill.’  As of July 21, 2017, it was headed to the House of Representatives for final review.  In the eyes of a diversity of civil society actors — feminist activists, human rights defenders, social justice...
