Re: Change in 2017 Requires Governments to Serve the Peoples of the World
Belizeans and true friends of Belize, Albeit the author of this article wrote it from within a
US context, I believe it contains a fundamental, or shall I say, universal, kernel of truth, as it relates to the global political milieu. | Worldwide, people are clamouring for change and to that notion, Belize is no exception. Each nation possesses its, unique, contributing inputs and in the case of Belize, the depressing truth is that people intuitively know the PUDP system is corrupt to the core, yet many remain reluctant to embrace anything that is beyond that with which they are accustomed, even despite the fact they are dissatisfied with the status quo.
Therein lies the need for Belizeans to accept the responsibility that comes with being not only the citizens of this nation, but also the stewards of our patrimony. Acting as though either side of the political status quo aka "the PUDP", shall have an epiphany following 36 years of intentionally pillaging and fleecing the resources of this nation, is utter lunacy. The reality is that both are culpable insofar as the current, untenable socio-economic state in which our nation finds itself and as for the Opposition PUP, they are simply waiting to get back in, to perpetuate this ill, downward cycle of corruption.
As for the incumbent UDP administration, the level of corruption under their tenure has reached its final stage...that of TYRANNY.
Neither side of the PUDP, non-divide has demonstrated the intent, wherewithal nor inclination to undertake that which is in the best interest of the masses. For anyone who begs to differ, I call your attention to the irresponsible manner in which both the UDP and PUP have handled Guatemala's aggressive intransigence, as they not only continue to lay a fraudulent claim to our sovereign territory, they have also stepped-up their actions to the point that our side of the Sarstoon River has been effectively annexed and amid this, our so-called "leaders" persist in their FAILED "4A Policy" of: APPEASEMENT, ACQUIESCENCE, ACCOMMODATION and ADHERENCE. Hence their myopic and flawed advice that Belize places its territorial integrity at the jurisprudence of the supposedly learned justices at the ICJ. That, alone should demonstrate the lack of vision and conviction by the powers that be, in that their intent is not to serve the people of Belize, toward ensuring that our nation's best interest is secured. Instead, they are hell-bent on maintaining the status quo, in which they and their cohorts persist in their crony-capitalist agenda, in which only the big wigs benefit.
Its past time that Belizeans embrace the Belize Progressive Party-BPP, which is the New Political Consciousness in Belize, because relegating yourselves to simply the PUPD, is the equivalent to saying that you are okay with the dire situation of the nation.
Make your representatives accountable, by demonstrating your discontent with their intentional dysfunction. In so doing, you shall succeed in showing them the true powers rests with the people.
