Title: Fixing the nation
Comments: In another article today in the same newspaper I note there is a call for fixing Trinidad. The problem is that we have at present no one with the ability or 'know how' of fixing what has gone wrong in this nation. Take a look at the records you will see the same repeated calls to fix this or that. Now most of these cries are considered to be calls in the wilderness Whilst there have been promises to be fixed most since our independence, nothing has been done. Look at the state of the nation,it is still falling apart. The politicians and those of wealth and in authority just love it as it is.If they did not then most wrongs would have been put right by now and we would not still be faced with repeated complaints. Every aspect of this nation needs putting right in other words fixing.This includes our politics, our justice system, the environment, proper provisions for the basic essentials such as medical, welfare, education,water supply, and employment. In my opinion this cannot be done and would never be done as those who have the power to generate the progress. They are lacking in the capability to do so. The impression that is now clearly given is that they are mostly interested in a quick buck and feathering their own nests .They have no real interest in the nation or its people.They are only interested in milking the treasury of the money gained by our now depleting resources of oil and gas. This is now quite evident by the lack of any real interest in the much needed start of diversification together with gradual destruction of our agriculture and other natural resources and industries by political legislation or deliberate neglect. The danger is that we still have citizens on both sides of the fence who are quite prepared to accept things as they are, and do exactly as they are told without any real combined racial group of citizens willing to question why and what, has happened to this nation and obviously what is still happening This in the ens could only lead to further deterioration of this nation.
