Burnham 33 Death Anniversary Feature of August 6, 2018

Forbes Burnham

Some say “Burnham”. Some say “Forbes Burnham”. Others say “Linden Forbes Sampson Burnham”, while there are those who say “The Founder Leader”. Of course, there are some who say, “The Dictator”.

Last Monday, August 6, 2018, dozens of individuals and groups converged at sunrise, at The Place of the Seven Ponds in the Botanical Gardens in Georgetown, where they payed homage to the memory of a man who, along with others, including Dr. Cheddi Jagan and Stephen Campbell, laid the foundations for an Independent Guyana. It was the occasion of the thirty third anniversary of the sudden passing, on August 6, 1985, of President Forbes Burnham; Guyana’s first executive President.

The Decline of Honesty – By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

The Decline of Honesty – Covering Up One Lie With Another

– By Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

Lies are commonplace. But we don’t admit to telling tell them.
We use euphemisms instead. We misspeak, stretch the facts, become economical with it, present nuanced truth, or in the case of Donald Trump, we offer alternative facts.

In the latest Trump-Cohen tape the truth is twisted and the spinning machines of the alt-right, left, center, and a myriad of others, have their own interpretations. There are times when you don’t know
what or who to believe.
