Political miscreants of our Caribbean societies
Political miscreants are those who behave criminally or viciously in office. These are people who do wrong, know they are doing wrong and enjoy doing wrong. These are the political miscreants in authority and with their devious aides and powers openly behave in a deliberate, dishonest, malicious or otherwise contemptible way.
In the past these people were referred to as infidels in that they openly spread their wrath on the poor people and cripple the nation. Mighty Sparrow called them the "Good Citizens" who "use the riches of the poor to enrich themselves/make a mockery of the law/ and pray to God to protect them at the same time"
These good citizens use unscrupulous legal minds to defend the indefensible and in the most artful way get away with it. Meanwhile, Dominica`s poor youth are sent to prison for long sentences for stealing potatoes, shop lifting and other related petty street crimes. Of course, wrong doing should be punished at all levels.
These miscreants are like stalactites; they are cone-shaped, hanging pillars creeping up the walls of the Financial Centre and other structures of government that has gradually built up as political cesspits, dirty political waste water seeping through these political corridors seeking prominence and recognition for their selfish ends. It's the plantocracy in operation.
We have just observed how the manipulation of elections, as in the St. Kitts elections, has become an art, well protected by so called "honourable good citizens", blessed and protected in churches by those who profess to be the guardians of God`s poor and vulnerable people. These political miscreants openly accumulate their wealth from the restricted and limited duty-free resources of the state through heavy perks, claim hefty travel allowances and they are unable to account to the people of Dominica and the Caribbean the benefits and returns of these travels.
This cacophonous gang stifle the growth and development of our citizens and country where over 50% of our youth are unemployed; many are incarcerated and their poor, vulnerable and deprived parents and elderly people are reduced to vagrancy; they continue to walk and parade the streets of Roseau everyday with begging hands while prayers are being said every Sunday by professed blessed men in gowns of deceitfulness and blindness for the protection and upkeep of these good citizens.
Prof. Hilary Beckles said in his paper entitled "Role of intellectuals": "It is also not rare to encounter intellectuals who in private do not believe what they proclaim with great fanfare in public".
Our Morne Diablotin and Morne Au Diable are not the devils of the country. These mountains have towered over us in peace for centuries, blown tranquil cool and soothing breezes, dropped heavenly holy water and blessed the land with holy showers from above. The diables are those who do not wish to remember G.O.N. Emanuel and his wife!
My dear people, corrupt political leaders have created failed states and at some point God's people have risen up. Rather than elevating the working class people of Dominica and the Caribbean to the level of nobility and democratic awareness these so-called political leaders, good citizens and elites representing the plantocracy have systematically perverted their thinking and judgment and reduced vulnerable nationals to mediocrity, begging, hand-outs and false allegiance.
The electoral and integrity in public office commissions need to be reviewed.
