Colonialism, Control and Corruption

Perhaps it is our pirate DNA deep in our memory, inherited from the very rulers that left us the legacy of corruption that makes us complacent, or perhaps our voices are misdirected. It’s about time we wake up and as a community we embrace a no-tolerance policy. This is our country now it no longer belongs to the colonial powers and we must set it right.

The seemingly harmless case of Corona (beer), has unfortunately led to the far more dangerous case of Corona (virus), traveling on a well-worn path from Orange Walk to San Pedro on the backs of migrant workers; and now; angling its way back through the mainland with a fury we never imagined.  This crisis  has brought to the forefront the urgent need for a new modern National Migration Policy that will promote national development, fair business practices, and a balance between immigration, social welfare and protection for all Belizean Citizens.

This balancing act is a tough one for governments, themselves questioning the wisdom of presiding over economic wreckage as predictions of growing economic doom hovers heavy in the months to come.

The current impasse with the informal exports of cattle and other commodities into Peten, Guatemala, unless resolved, will cause a fundamental impact on our domestic food security. In order to understand the reason for this informal trade, a review of the Partial Scope Agreement with Guatemala is important.

In this Age of Isolation, it means that in our own nation of Belize, we must reinvent ourselves. It means that Government, political parties, the private sector, and civil society must put aside petty squabbles and join hands in crafting a new nation that can operate and thrive self-sufficiently inside our proverbial national isolation ward.

Windmills In Our Midst

While we take for granted that the ubiquitous corner Chiney Shop, open anytime, is convenient, this shift in retail control has led to the virtual demise of traditional distribution channels and has significantly impacted the health of our population, taxation, building standards, and the environment.

The Tribes Are Restless, Opinionated, And Armed With Media

This problem, however goes far beyond just the protection of human rights, and goes to the heart of our society’s tailspin into the chasm of hate, divisiveness and mean-spirited, now using easily accessible and sharable media as a tool of harm against our fellow man, women, child, often in the name of political agitation, religion, or a warped sense of personal satisfaction.

Mary France, arrested and charged for murder, was sentenced to an eternity in this calm shallow bay, left to die and to be consumed by the very nature that she once defiled.

Belize Great Blue Hole

Belize has made a name for itself as one of the best places to start a new life post-pandemic. This quirky nation of just over 400,000 citizens has some of the best features for those seeking a reprieve from crowded, over commercialized cities with harsh winter weather and sky-rocketing cost of living.
