Guyana Politics: The unsinkable Titanic sank in 2015 – By Freddie Kissoon

Guyana Politics: The unsinkable Titanic sank in 2015

By Freddie Kissoon – 12 June 2018

Three important occurrences last week should be noted – the court ruled that the President could select a GECOM Chairman of his own choice bypassing the Carter formula. Secondly, Ashni Singh and Winston Brassington have received more criminal charges. Thirdly, after a long absence from the public gallery, Roger Luncheon surfaced to accuse GECOM of discrimination in employment.

Inside the psychology of all PPP leaders after their 1992 victory was that the PPP could never lose an election and was only kept out of power by electoral fraud. For all PPP cadres, once there is a general election, the PPP will win. By the time Jagdeo won a second term in 2006, the PPP’s collective psychology was saturated with invincibility.      Continue reading

Guyana: Celebrating Guyanese Icons from New Amsterdam – By Valerie Coddett

Celebrating Guyanese Icons from New Amsterdam

Who is Valerie Coddett?

Some eight years ago I shared the 1952 and 1954 British Guiana music festival results on F-Book with a group of Guyanese friends/acquaintances who insisted I record the event. I was born in Bread Street, New Amsterdam (renamed Charles Place after Sir Charles Woolley, a former British Governor). The first seventeen years of my life were spent there. Having emigrated to the United States some fifty years ago, I am now attempting to portray my impressions of the New Amsterdam I knew. It is my hope that in sharing these stories, they will provide not only an Afrocentric view of New Amsterdam but a Truth-centric one as well. I have included other stellar personalities the soil has produced.    Continue reading

Are YOU Brainwashed? – By Uri Avnery

Are YOU Brainwashed? – By Uri Avnery – June 9. 2018

IT’S FRIGHTENING. Unprincipled psychologists, in the service of a malignant regime, use sophisticated techniques in order to control the mind of a person from afar.

The term “brainwashing” was born in 1950. It is a Chinese word (“xinao”, literally wash brain). Originally it served to describe a technique used – so it was claimed – by Chinese masterminds to manipulate the minds of American prisoners in the Korean War. They changed their unconscious mental processes and turned them into agents of sinister forces.

Many books and movies purported to show how this works. For example, the classic film “The Manchurian Candidate” shows how the communists take an American prisoner-of-war in the Korean war, an officer, manipulate his mind and give him an order to kill the US presidential candidate.  Continue reading
