BARBADOS (Naked Departure) — Barbadians keep on celebrating failure. Barbados no longer belongs to bajans, bajans cannot afford to live in the country they were born in. It is disgraceful that the things for basic human consumption are not available to the Barbadian people. Potable water, clean food, clean air and proper health standards, are basic human rights. Your political elites continue to lie to you and lead Barbados down a slippery slope of nothingness. You must know Barbadians that your generational standard of living is in decline, and that the actuarial tables will reflect that future generations of Barbadians will die younger, and live in a worse consumer based economy, than in the past. Now what’s it, that future generations will be worse off than the generations before them? It is because post independent Barbados, failed to harness the power of its separation from agrarianism to tourism, which are still the tools of the plantocracy.
Barbadians after independence, were never offered decent paying jobs, and the educational system in Barbados facilitated for the reliance of Barbadians on government sector employment. As most of you should know, that the main role of government is not to produce jobs for the populace. The private sector produces jobs, and pays taxes. Barbados is in social and governmental decay. It leads me to say, what are Barbadians celebrating relative to fifty years of independence? Does independence mean freedom for bajans, and if so, how and why? Granted there are more impressive houses and buildings in Barbados, but what about the national consciousness of Barbadians?
Barbadians must be engaged collectively in the replacement of the two-party-failed-political system. What Barbadians have been offered for the last fifty years, is the same old tired political rhetoric of the DLP/BLP. If Barbadians could not see the faces of the politicians in both of these parties, they would sound like the same persons were speaking. Barbadians you have been tricked, hoodwinked, and bamboozled. You must remember Barbadians, “If you continue to do what you always did, you will continue to get what you always got.” Victor Callender
