Home' Trinidad and Tobago Guardian : July 14th 2015 Contents what do we have to show for it?
Unless you travel abroad, it s impossible
to imagine that life doesn t have to be a
struggle; that efficient public transportation
can save you from sitting in traffic for
hours each day, that all the public schools
can offer a great education, and that lock-
ing up yourself inside burglar proofing
doesn t have to be necessary for survival.
Recycling, sustainable development and
efficient urban planning seem to still be for-
eign concepts. The brain drain is in full effect.
Most of those who are fortunate enough
to be educated abroad, choose not to
return, but instead become successful pro-
fessionals where the grass is greener.
Can you blame them?
It s all our fault. For too long, we have
ignored the pertinent issues and allowed
our politicians to make a mockery of our
democracy by simply pandering to the
immediate demands of tribal politics.
Where are the open, transparent national
Long-term development for us is just
long enough to get what can be gotten
before the dissatisfied and disappointed
people choose the other alternative.

reforms, we as a people are again allowing
ourselves to be distracted by the constant
political mudslinging. This is not normal!
Surely we might have taken the hint
from John Oliver and HBO s Last Week
Tonight television show that we have
become satirical amusement for the rest
of the world.
We are a product of our history and are
still dealing with the issues of our past.
Sadly, for many, our nation is just a means
to an end as we seem to have inherited the colonial
mindset of exploiting a place and its people, with
the ultimate aim of taking the wealth out and
leaving with it.
This is coupled with many of the same cultural
issues that still plague India and much of Africa.
The Greek people showed they have had enough.
They demanded and then seized responsibility for
their future by voting in a referendum to reject
austerity plans driven by their creditors and the
They got informed and made a decision that
directly and immediately affects their future quality
of life. As our election looms over the horizon, it
will be interesting to see if we as a democracy have
matured enough to do the same.
