Youths: Challenges for the Future! – By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

There was a time when there was no television. The radio was plugged into a battery and its programs ended at ten in the night. Daily distractions were minimal. The people were poor but they prized education as it was the passport to a better life. Books changed hands and the ‘dog ears’ were smoothened to make reading easy. There was respect for teachers as parents and the schools worked together to enforce discipline. The community celebrated success of the children.

This stunning announcement can be juxtaposed for its truth and applicability to the sayings of Savoyard lawyer, historian and philosopher Joseph Le Maistre, “that every nation gets the government it deserves, and Alexander de Tocqueville, the famous French political thinker and historian,  speaking in the Chamber of Deputies just prior to the outbreak of the European Revolution who said: “We are sleeping on a volcano… A wind of revolution blows, the storm is on the horizon.    Continue reading

The “Terrorism of Money” and the Global War On Cash: Target India – Part I

The “Terrorism of Money” and the Global War On Cash: Target India – Part I

The big bankers of the world, who practice the terrorism of money, are more powerful than kings and field marshals, even more than the Pope of Rome himself. They never dirty their hands. They kill no-one: they limit themselves to applauding the show. Their officials, international technocrats, rule our countries: they are neither presidents nor ministers, they have not been elected, but they decide the level of salaries and public expenditure, investments and divestments, prices, taxes, interest rates, subsidies, when the sun rises and how frequently it rains.     Continue reading
