Citizens taking action

In the face of stunning failures at State level to transform our nation, we must applaud the few citizens who envision and lead private initiatives to make a defining difference for Guyanese.

Facing ourselves

In our quest to create the kind of future we aspire to, we must cultivate the ability to know the root cause of why we are where we are today.

Rethinking our society

We fail to audit the real results of our efforts at developing our society.

The media as voice of the body politic

Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers.

The global Guyanese

Facing critical challenges in the Guyanese homeland, like our shortage of skills and lack of a world class human resource capital pool, we need to exercise creative thinking to find solutions.

Society and the individual

We imitate the society around us. This social theory, which the French thinker Rene Girard expounds with particular eloquence, explains why we behave the way we do, and why society stumbles into its blind spot of a default future.

Young people initiate citizen solutions

- Aim to solve national literacy crisis in face of lethargic Ministry of Education

Young people, the new generation now coming of adult age, feel they must take responsibility for the state of the society, and launch citizen initiatives to solve crushing problems.

Building a world class Guyanese society

Scanning our society for the focal point, the cornerstone of our development potential, the foundation pillar on which we build everything else, the critical key that allows our people to develop into a world class society, we come to one answer: our people.

Plant literate lifestyle in Parliament

Without strong reading and writing skills, we cannot develop this nation. We may build massive hotels on the edge of the ocean with imported Chinese labour, but we cannot harbour a refined culture, cultivate our creative energy, or reap intellectual innovation, if our reading and writing remains poor.

UG solution to literacy crisis

Facing our society’s vice-grip of gross illiteracy, with the Education Ministry failing to install a sound literacy strategy, citizens must confront our social decay before the rot becomes unworkable.

Our way of being

Raphael Trotman’s call for a Council of Elders to mediate decency and good sense in our nation, as inspiring as the idea is, does not consider the contribution, talent and wisdom of our gifted young.
