Where have we reached as a nation? *

Trinidad Express / I have listened to and observed, over the years, the many people in this so-called Republic of Trinidad and Tobago analysing the system and trying to figure out what is wrong with it?

To me this question is so comical. It’s almost bordering on contempt. Most of the questions are coming from people who claim to be highly educated; high up on the intellectual totem pole pretending to be agonising over our catastrophic societal situation and who are seriously seeking solutions to address this systematic elusive puzzle to which most of them contributed. But I know we are tolerating too many game-players and political carpetbaggers.

This system is not a puzzle, and it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to find the answers to all the questions that are engaging the minds of many. We have inherited a most corrupt colonial system from the British Empire; one that was always stacked against us, coming out of slavery. We took it lock, stock and barrel and are hell bent on making it work for us.
