By Richard Harrison: Sometimes I feel like have bad mind and start helping to push for the massive “yes for Belize” ICJ propaganda…which actually means “yes to Guatemala”….so that the dumb-as-nails status quo elite of Belize, whom are mostly backing this traitorous move, learn their lesson…they will get chew up and spat out by the military/elite oligarchy of Guatemala and all the vipers they will bring with them…in front of whom our lee status quo elite is peanuts.
These people have no clue how to grow Belize beyond the only method they know…population growth…which is what is behind this agenda…more mouths to eat and drink, etc…more of everything except innovation, creativity, research and development, work culture development, differentiation and positioning for competitive advantage, transparency and accountability….they and their families will have 16 million new customers…and all Guatemalan villages, towns and cities can use big supermarkets, fry chicken shops and ramen, which they dont have now.
The population of Belize will shoot up to one million in a short space of time…mostly with a lot of very needy people…competition for the few meagre jobs will get tougher…people will start paying to get and keep a job as happens now in Guatemala…already many here pay with their bodies or their dignity to get good jobs and climb the ladder…the minimum wage will continue to stagnate…crime and corruption will just get worse.
BUT the new status quo elite will be in their private schools and hospitals and high-walled mansions with security guards and their Rotary Clubs and Chamber of Commerces…and NGOs driven by foreign interests with their hands in the taxpayers cookie jar…exploiting all the tourism proceeds for a few of their own kind and turning the poor and middle class into modern slaves and prostitutes…but the Belizean brown nosers who now “feel” like they are part of the status quo will be banished into failed oblivion like the rest of us whom the current status quo elite have mercilessly mashed down here in Belize …how many Belizean store owners disappeared? bakeries owners? gas stations owners? now hotels, bars and entertainment owners will start to disappear? Belizean doctors and nurses and other professionals who cant get jobs here unless they kiss the status quo elite ass or manage to screw their way into the “family”? How many Belize people know who kill their family members, or if they are “disappeared” by state-sponsored organized crime linked to drugs and extortion cartels? How many Belizeans have gotten a piece of land in the past 20 years? who get all the scholarships? then just look around and see who all are the kiss ass lap dogs barking “yes to Guatemala”…many of the same little highty tighty “intellectual educated” with scholarships gifted to the “People of Belize” by governments who support our independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity….yet they have their noses stuck deep up the status quo elite ass seeking reaffirmation, recognition and rub-shoulder status….instead of using their knowledge to help Belize change for the better….so sickening to watch! puke…
The status quo elite of Belize survive because of monopoly privileges and favors from government…protected by the “security chiefs” and their armed minions? to engage with impunity in contraband, drugs, money laundering, people trafficking, prostitution, corruption, extortion, etc, in return for status and promotion…not because they are highly competitive and productive…or possess some special ability…they wouldn’t know what that is if it jumped up and bit them in the ass.
All of that shit will come to an end…CICIB is already functional in Guatemala…and many of these “big hogs” strutting their Rolex’s and cocaine binges and concubines will be in jail…right where they belong.
So…sometimes I honestly feel like going in a big way for the “yes to Guatemala” vote…because I can survive anywhere in the world…but this lazy, chancey, dumb-as-nails status quo elite with their heads up their ass cant even build a new factory or industry in Belize…they dont even invest in education of their children to teach them to multiply the countries wealth…they know that in Belize you can be better off without a top-notch education…by the means told in this essay…and as for their all-glitter and no-substance poster boys and girls they allow into high office…they only know how to borrow so we dround in debt, behaving like we can make a living off cement streets, parks and round abouts…bunch of megalo cronia minus grey matter….kiss ass incompetent gluttonous thieves that are jacking up fuel, electricity, transportation, cost of living, education, healthcare and medicines, construction supplies, every goddamn thing…so that now the vast majority of young people of Belize live on top of one another with three generations in their parents home or in single rooms with shared bathrooms…but the kids of the status quo elite, who cannot drive a nail home with a hammer, much less build a business from scratch…live in sprawling estate mansions.
BUT then I remember that my kids and other family also need to make it here…and this is their only home…then I also remember that most of my Belizeans are good, friendly, humble, hardworking, struggling people…deserving of much better…and that they afforded me my high education as a part of the international community contribution to the development of Belize through higher education scholarships…and I remember all the challenges I have faced and who brought me through them all with my skin and mind so-far intact…reminded that the Almighty gives us only the load that we can bear…and the challenges that make us grow and get stronger….I remember that so many of this status quo elite I have known and been friends with over time…many fun-loving, carefree, almost naive people who dont know what they are getting themselves into by supporting this “yes to Guatemala” recolonialism-driven agenda….so I see reconciliation before the referendum day of April 10…I see the little Singapore of the Caribbean budding in its aftermath…and after all the research and study I have put into this ICJ challenge…being no international law/history expert….believing in Belize and Belizeans still…and harnessing the strength and inspiration of SELF-DETERMINATION….I must say a big fat NO to ICJ! ?????
