    Emancipendence, Garvey and the charade that passes for a modern Jamaica

    The recently coined word “Emancipendence” has been cleverly used to describe two quite separate events that culminated over 100 years apart. They do, however, represent two cooperative efforts that transcended racial descent, giving rise to a concept later described as “Out of Many, One People”; our Jamaican National Motto....

    If we truly believe that water is life…

    I keep going back to the concepts of planning, cross-Ministries action (joined up government), and progress outside of crisis action. These conditions are necessary for dealing with recurrent problems, whether or not these are occurring at the specific moment. These governmental measures also apply to the private sector and...

    Cut the crap, we are in danger of losing Jamaica

     The context of a crossroad is simply understood in terms of traffic, for if you come to a section where two roads meet (intersection) then there are four clear choices — go straight, go left, go right; or turn back. Secondly, at a T-junction the choice is to the...

    In This Era of Chaos

    In the beginning there was formless matter called chaos. The Bible and other accounts suggest that God made matter or form out of that Chaos and that is the start of the Universe. Philosophers may well ask the question “who made chaos”, not really expecting an answer. Well now,...

    And now…the unreal soap opera #Jamaica

    The response to living in a stressful environment cannot be to continue to encourage the succession of crises that detract from important issues of State. Since my last article we have had several episodes of an unreal soap opera called Hashtag Jamaica. Just to be fair, the USA is...
