It really ain’t the economy

It was extremely satisfying to hear the Attorney General recently addressing a number of important issues facing this nation and the way they will be dealt with.
Worldwide, leaders lack the will to tackle the real source of the calamity they face. Instead they sidestep the real issue, boldly declaring that it is “the economy” – the number one issue. It is not!
Leaders worldwide are preoccupied with declaring new immoral issues that if wholly followed would not sustain human life.
Some leaders declare that they are not the custodians of the people’s morals while setting bad examples to the people, while using their legislative powers to determine what is right or wrong, serious or not so serious, sin or not sin.
Business leaders “made off ” with hard-earned lifelong invested savings, Ponzi schemes defrauded many, bankers used high risk gambling ideas to make financial decisions and lost billions, dishonest, unfaithful leaders cheated on family destroying trust.
Powerful men and women lacking in moral guidance want to pressure the Barbados Government to change our laws to accept wrong unsustainable human relationships. Some are issuing treats to harm the Barbados economy unless we adhere to their demands.
Barbados’ leaders, Government and people must reject that pressure.
