Serious food for thought
Published: Sep 04, 2013
All around the world we see countries weeding out corrupt officials and punishing them for their actions, America, Britain, even China and Cuba — communist countries — are cracking down on corruption.
When was the last time a Bahamian politician or high ranking government official was taken before the courts and charged with corruption?
I’m sure none in the last 20 years. You realize this means one of two things.
Either corruption does not exist in The Bahamas, making us the only country on earth where this is the case, or we are an absolutely corrupt nation and have accepted corruption as a way of life that requires no punishment or consequences whatsoever.
Which one do you think it is?
We need to start getting to the root of our issues as a people and country, and stop dancing around the peripheral distractions.
