OPINION: The Beasts of two nations

By Paul Sanders, New York, April 2020 Take it or leave it. There is an Indian Guyana, and there is an African Guyana. And somewhere in between there’s a sort of a No Man’s Land – for the moroons. The trouble is both Indo and Afro Guyanese have serious vision impairment; they don’t see eye to eye; they can’t get ...

OPINION: A coalescing of foreign positions, with Americans in front

by GHK Lall As I read of different utterings at different times from the foreigners, my sense is that there is a continuing shift in the wind.  It is steadily stronger in one direction only.  I would advise all, especially coalition leaders, to pay attention, to read carefully the messages being transmitted, within the limited confines of diplomatic speak.  There ...

OPINION: Notes on race, power sharing and the 2020 elections

by Nigel Westmaas  Guyana’s recent general elections, held on March 2, remains mired in an implausible and very suspicious delay that is hardly transparent.

Stupidity, while innately comical especially in the political sphere, often comes with a side of brutality. And we are forced to suffer fools. It took, more or less, ...

OPINION: Americans are now faced with two critical emergencies: the COVID-19 pandemic, and Donald Trump

by Paul Sanders, New York Had you watched Trump’s press briefing on Monday you’d conclude by now that the man occupying the White House should be in an inpatient mental-facility. His manic, gibbering ragefest was a complete meltdown shitshow of a failed man who has long ago passed the limits of his competence and knowledge. It was an angry, needy ...

OPINION: Oil futures below zero; meaningless to most Guyanese

By GHK Lall Oil prices, the futures to be precise, went into negative territory for the first time in their volatile stormy history. For many it is like the end of the world. Yet, here are Guyanese lost in the impenetrable hazes of their own little world, who could care less. The bounty bestowed on us is now worth nothing, ...

OPINION: Pathway to power-sharing “the only way out of our draining problems”

By GHK Lall Though I am pessimistic about the prospects of power-sharing in this country, I see it as the only way out of our draining problems. The winner-takes-all results over each elections cycle have left us in a darker, more dangerous place. Our society is more polarized, losing citizens more disgruntled, more uncooperating, and more undermining. We cannot go ...
