The Bahamas In Transition # 4

Slavery Of The Mind

In most places in the world when a political party loses an election, the political appointments leave with that administration. Under the British system, permanent secretary and directors jobs are secure, because they have experience on how a department or country functions. The new incoming politician most of them have no idea how these departments work. But the political appointments such as the ambassadors and other lower level appointees are normally recall and replace.

Thus the gravy train begin. Some of the supporters who had contracts with the previous administration will lose them, others will not receive another until their party returns to power. But what so mystifying about this gravy train, is that these people have become so dependant on politician. And what bothers me so much about this situation is, that there are people in this group who have educational degrees, these are not the poor uneducated, but the intelligent ones. .

Once their party lose they struggle until their party wins again, hoping they get a job on some political board, and wishing a salary comes with it. These people may have education, but lack creativity, they can't create a job or invent anything for themselves. But this is what the politician love, they will never try to help the masses become independent. Their strategy is always to keep them dependant upon the state. They will never teach them or offer programs on how to become independent either.

Their main wish is to make sure that those vote keep coming back, but what does that do to a country and its people? When a people becomes too dependant, they lose the battle and become less creative, and foreigners will eventually be the privileged class.

Burma Road Riot

This event happened in 1942, it occurred when the road was under construction from the caves, on to B. road, ending at windsor field. British soldiers who were also road engineers, were building this road to accommodate an airbase near windsor field, which was to help with the war effort at that time. Today this is our main airport called the L.P. Airport.

The area where the airport is now located was a swamp, so the decision to start the road near the caves which is now a tourist attraction today, was to collect quarry and rocks from the limestone hills nearby, and build the airport and roads.

The question is still being asked today, what caused this riot?, There were always grumbling about wages, dissatisfaction about working condition, and being treated as second class citizen wasn't anything new. The records states that the riot was spontaneous.
