The Grenville Phillips Column – The End Game – Part 5 of 5, Prepare to Survive

If I were given a choice between accepting US$100M every year for the remainder of my life, or renegotiating the Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) for the benefit of the next generation of Caribbean people, I would choose renegotiating the EPA without hesitation.

A simple trick when negotiating a trade agreement with a weaker economy is to offer a head-start.  By negotiating in secret, our negotiators did not seem to understand that when there is no finish-line, a head-start only delays the inevitable.  The Europeans gave us a 25-year head-start, and so far, we have squandered it.

We should remember that the Europeans gave us 20 years to fix our discriminatory corporate tax system.  Our response was to go to sleep on this issue for 19 years and 10 months, and then attempt a quick fix before the December 2018 deadline.  The Europeans rejected our hurried effort, so we accused them of not playing fair.

While we continue to sleep on the EPA issue, the Europeans are preparing to take all the Caribbean’s resources.  Our politicians seem to have done nothing to prepare us since they embarked on this lunacy 17 years ago.  In 14 years, our children will be forced into the nightmare that our politicians signed.  If they are complaining about unfair play now, what will they do when the Europeans’ gloves finally come off?

Since our politicians seem too interested in public relations exercises in pursuit of their lifetime pension, we would be most foolish to depend on them.  Therefore, the focus of the remainder of this article is to help you develop yourself to become internationally competitive.  If you have read all past End Game articles, then you already know why this is critical for your family’s survival.

We are on this Earth to mature.  Therefore, we should never stop developing.  We normally improve at whatever we practise, and we can operate at an expert level after about 10 years of practise.            For your family’s sake, pursue the following steps.

Step 1 – For one month, starting today, try to do everything you do as well as you can.  That would include: speaking, writing, reading, studying, singing, eating, grooming, dressing, playing, cooking, cleaning and working.  Plan to be better today than you were yesterday, and better tomorrow than you are today.  Encourage everyone in your household to do the same.

Step 2 – Once you have consistently done your best for one month, it will become habitual and easier to do.  The next step is to identify a better standard than your own effort and try to achieve it.  You can identify higher standards in books, on the Internet, and/or through the advice of those more accomplished.

Step 3 – Start your own business.  We teach persons how to start and grow profitable businesses with no start-up money, so please attend the next free public training workshop.  Please do not get a ‘trust-loan’ or any type of loan to start a business, because you are almost guaranteed to lose it.  The first law of business is that you always lose your initial investment – leaning what not to do.

Step 4 – Develop your skills.  If you are a labourer, learn to become an artisan.  If you are an artisan, learn to become a supervisor.  If you are a supervisor, learn to become a contractor.  If you are a technician assisting a professional, then pursue the qualifications of the professional.  If you are a draughts-person, learn to become an architect.  Get trained formally or informally.

Step 5 – Improve your professional qualifications.  Join an international professional association in your field.  If you are a student member, become a graduate member.  If you are a graduate, become a corporate member.  If you are a corporate member, then become a Fellow.

Step 6 – Improve your academic qualifications.  If you have CXC’s, then pursue an accredited Bachelor’s degree.  If you have a Bachelor’s, then pursue a Master’s.  If you have a Master’s, then pursue a Doctorate.  If you have a Doctorate, then shepherd others through.

As a legacy of slavery, expect others to try to discourage you by criticising or ridiculing your best efforts.  For the sake of yourself and your children, ignore them.  You have 14 years to become internationally competitive, so start today.

I have a lot of sympathy for public workers mismanaged by politically appointed incompetent supervisors.  Government employees, including those in statutory corporations, should insist on working in an internationally competitive environment.  With 10 years of experience in an ISO 9001 management environment, their skills will be highly desirable and internationally transferable.  If implemented properly, the ISO 9001 system automatically trains persons to become efficient and productive.

For the past 17 years, our politicians and political operatives have immaturely ridiculed this international management standard, to Barbados’ harm.  If your politically appointed manager refuses to implement the ISO 9001 management system, then you have identified a hater who wants to keep you down.  Do not let them keep you down any longer.  Start a side-business, and when it can support your household, look for the first opportunity to leave.

This concludes the End Game series of articles.  You are encouraged to share them.

  • Hi Peter:

    I was new to the political environment.

    I was and remain a respected structural engineer with a stellar career around the region. I was surprised at the depth of slanderous and defamatory remarks to my character and to my family by fellow professionals, who were later revealed to be political operatives.

    I was too busy responding to each attack. I was also surprised that professionals would ridicule an international standard. I expected that of politicians. I am a lot wiser to the vile political environment now.

  • Every Individual is Encouraged to Dream Big and Multiply the Gifts and Talents they have Been Endowed With by their Creator!

    Remember the Parable of the Talents…those who multiplied their Talents were given more…those who refused to be Industrious from him it was taken away and given to the one who by his Diligence Prospered. God created each individual uniquely different with gifts and talents to develop according to their desires. We are all given talents according to the law of the harvest or the parable of the Talents. We are each to use our own initiative to grow those gifts given to us. If you remember the person that was given only one in the story, buried theirs and had no increase. That which they had and did not use was taken away and given to another that used their talents. The ideology of leftism or Socialism is in opposition to God and His Commandments. They have changed the law of the harvest to the exact opposite to which it is intended. This is called Social Justice. All it means is legalized theft, the ability of the Government to take from those that strive to increase their talents and give to those who refuse to develop theirs. This is Bondage, this is Tyranny, and this is the Adversary’s philosophy.

  • Self-Reliance/Independence

    Self-reliance is more than having a good job, or money in the bank. Rather, it is “the ability, commitment, and effort to provide the spiritual and temporal necessities of life for self and family. As people become self-reliant, they enthrone work as a ruling principle in their lives.

    “Self-reliance is a product of our work and undergirds all other welfare practices. It is an essential element in our spiritual as well as our temporal well-being. … ‘Let us work for what we need. Let us be self-reliant and independent. Salvation can be obtained on no other principle. Salvation is an individual matter, and we must work out our own salvation in temporal as well as in spiritual things.’

    Provident Living: Applying Principles of Self-Reliance and Preparedness…Wise and provident living is a lifestyle that builds character and increases our temporal, social, emotional, and spiritual well-being. We are responsible for our own social, emotional, spiritual, physical, and economic well-being.

    We should work for what we receive.

    Proverbs 29:18,… Where there is no vision the people perish: but he that keepeth the Law, happy is he. They are numerous examples of God in Government throughout the scriptures that are so necessary for us to understand for our Modern Day Survival!

    Genesis 41

    34 Let Pharaoh do this, and let him appoint officers over the land, and take up the fifth part of the land of Egypt in the seven plenteous years.

    35 And let them gather all the food of those good years that come, and lay up corn under the hand of Pharaoh, and let them keep food in the cities.

    36 And that food shall be for store to the land against the seven years of famine, which shall be in the land of Egypt; that the land perish not through the famine.

    37 And the thing was good in the eyes of Pharaoh, and in the eyes of all his servants.

    54 And the seven years of dearth began to come, according as Joseph had said: and the dearth was in all lands; but in all the land of Egypt there was bread. 55 And when all the land of Egypt was famished, the people cried to Pharaoh for bread: and Pharaoh said unto all the Egyptians, Go unto Joseph; what he saith to you, do. 56 And the famine was over all the face of the earth: and Joseph opened all the storehouses, and sold unto the Egyptians; and the famine waxed sore in the land of Egypt. 57 And all countries came into Egypt to Joseph for to buy corn; because that the famine was so sore in all lands.

  • Economic Freedom Is the Best Weapon Against Poverty…

    Over the past few decades, Hundreds of Millions of People have Risen out of Poverty to grow into a Powerful Global Middle Class. This Unprecedented Rise is Overwhelmingly the Result of Embracing Greater Economic Freedom.

    Economic Freedom Enshrines Personal Choice, Voluntary Exchange, and Protection of Private Property. It is Development from the Bottom up by Individuals, Not Top Down by Governments…

    Be an Entrepreneur Develop your Talents & Abilities and Employ yourself.

    The essential nature of Free Enterprise Capitalism is social harmony through the pursuit of self-interest. Under Capitalism, the individual’s pursuit of his own economic self-interest simultaneously benefits the economic self-interests of all others. In allowing each individual to act unhampered by government regulations, Capitalism causes wealth to be created in the most efficient manner possible which ultimately raises the standard of living, increases the economic opportunities, and makes available an ever growing supply of products for everyone. The free-market operates in such a way so that as one man creates more wealth for himself, he simultaneously creates more wealth and opportunities for everyone else, which means that as the rich become richer, the poor become richer. It must be understood that Capitalism serves the economic self-interests of all, including the Non-Capitalists. “And even if we were all magically made equal in wealth tonight, we’d be unequal in the morning because some of us would spend it and some of us would save it”. Lawrence Reed.

    I have read your EPA concerns before, but am quite ignorant about the deal. So I found it online, all 1930+ pages. I have attempted reading, but twice now, it had the effect of a strong sleeping pill.

    So to use your knowledge, where/how are the ‘Caibbean’s resources’ under threat? I guess there are specific areas which are more exposed than others?

    In one article you made reference to a ‘side deal’ to NAFTA which never materialized. Yet NAFTA never really worked even for the 3 signatories. Each country had it barriers to entry, beginning with design, through bidding and then into materials used.

    “A people who depend upon a government managing personal needs, personal benefits, and personal responsibilities are owned by the whole instead of being a society of self-owned individuals. The law in a free society is only used for the protection of person and property—you cannot use the law as a tool for force and theft of property and labor, NO MATTER HOW GOOD THE INTENTION—this economic ideology of a “fair share” of anther’s labor is the foundation for Communism, Fascism, Nazism & Socialism…

  • IT SEEMS THAT COMMON SENSE NOT SO COMMON AFTER ALL WHEN LISTENING TO PRIDEFUL/IRRATIONAL THOUGHTS ON BU…

    PLEASE NOTE…There are two and only two ways that any economy can be organized. One is by Freedom and Voluntary Choice—the Way of the Market. The other is by Force and Dictation—the Way of the State…

    The State obtains its revenue by Coercion; by Threatening Dire Penalties should the income not be forthcoming. That Coercion is known as “Excessive Taxation.”

    Excess Taxation Without Restraint is Theft, purely and simply even though it is Theft on a grand and colossal scale which no acknowledged criminals could hope to match. It is a Compulsory Seizure of the Property of the State’s Inhabitants, or Subjects.”

    By the way we do not pay taxes the Government Takes our Taxes. Taxation is Not Voluntary it is Forced. I have been writing for a few years now, that the solution to pilfering by way of Taxation by Governments is the System of Governance meaning Socialist practices of robbing Peter to pay Paul and until we come to understand that Socialism is a Godless Conspiracy Masquerading as Political Philosophy, we will continue to be deprived, the only intent of such, is to Rule over others for Control and Profit.

    More than a failed state, it’s a failed SYSTEM. It’s called Socialism and it sooner or later fails everywhere. Its motto is, “When at first you don’t succeed, fail, fail again.” In the free, competitive private sector, failure is something you learn from, so you can succeed in the future. But in the public sector under Socialism especially, failure is merely an excuse to fail even more spectacularly later because all that matters is intentions, not results. Let’s hope that in Venezuela, the hour of liberation is near and that lessons will be learned from this horrific flop spelled S-O-C-I-A-L-I-S-M.

    BAJANS KEEP YOUR EYES OPENED…LOOK & LEARN & ABOVE ALL CHOOSE RIGHTEOUSLY & RIGHTLY…PUT AVAY PRIDE/ENVY AND ALL THAT WOULD BARR YOU FROM YOUR RIGHTEFUL INHERITANCE WHEN THE TIME COMES.

    HE WILL COME @ THE RIGHT TIME & ONLY HE KNOWS WHEN…BUT AS LONG AS WE HAVE AN EARTHLY EXISTANCE AND BREATH GRANTED TO US, WE MUST PREPARE SPIRITUALLY AND PHICALLY BECAUSE THOSE THAT PREPARE WILL NOT FEAR ONE WAY OR THE OTHER!!

  • Dear All

    My experience is that once a group of persons set their minds to solve a problem, then through honest discussion, the root problem can be identified. The group can also iteratively move closer to a workable solution.

    This method of solving problems works when all parties have the same aim of solving the problem. It works across cultures and age groups. However, it is guaranteed not to work when instead of focusing on (or attacking) the problem, we are manipulated into focusing on (and attacking) each other.

    It is the manipulators, the political operatives, who ensure that corruption and mismanagement are part of the governing political administrations for the foreseeable future. When manipulators see unity in discussion, or honest discussion that can lead to a convergence of ideas, they seem compelled to inject disunity.

    The question that begs an answer is, what compels them to inject disunity by manipulating people to attack each-other, rather than attacking the problem in need of a solution? By being aware of what compels them helps put their personal attacks in context.

    Construction is the crown jewel because it can bankrupt a small economy relatively quickly. Unfortunately, it also attracts corruption like a magnet. I do not think that any other tradable service can put a small economy at risk of ruin as the Construction industry.

  • @ Grenville Phillips RE…”The question that begs an answer is, what compels them to inject disunity by manipulating people to attack each-other”…

    In Each of us there is a Tendency to do Good and a Tendency to do Evil…so the Initiate asked the Master which One Would Win and the Master said the one you Feed. The Same is True of Philosophies and Country’s those that have both do not know how they will turn out yet because they are feeding both so their Countries will be always divided…

    Those that have Chosen the Good Will Prosper and those that have Chosen the Evil will become as they have Chosen. There is Always only Two Choices in front of us that which is Good and that which is Evil. As it is Written in the Scriptures, “And if it Seem Evil unto you to Serve the LORD, then Choose the False gods of this world… but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.” Joshua 24:15

    They are Only Two Philosophies in the World …That of Freedom and that of Bondage…It all comes down to the Exercise of Free Agency … Choose Whom Ye Will Serve!!

    The Gospel = Freedom of the Individual with Individual Rights and Principles…

    The fact that the Tyranny of Liberal Progressives (socialism/communism) itself has been steadily gaining ground over the past century without halting between leaders or generations, actually spanning periods of history without interruption of any sort, proves to us finally that there is something more evil and sinister going on in those people that are leading this infamy…. Usually, bad ideas tend to be exposed and rejected, at least that’s what most of us expect to happen, believing that common sense will finally rule the day.

    But, tellingly, that has not happened this time. Instead the worst ideas of Government seem to have gotten root in us in such a way that it’s becoming almost impossible to reject their sinister attractions. So we must begin to ask, who is it that is behind the rampant spreading of the disease but the Adversary himself, who makes all to war against each other, and who will bring all that listen into slavery of giving away our rights, freedoms and liberties to men of evil nature, and that care not one whit about true fairness and justice.

    It’s time to connect the dots and see who is really behind socialism et al, as well as the color of every tyranny known to mankind. This is the Adversary’s game…. Always has been. And there is only one way to defeat it. Once we know the evil spirit responsible, we may then learn to repent of such foolishness and rise above the evil tide. Return to the roots of the Gospel, even Jesus Christ, that he has given to all men, that they might receive His Blessings. His is the way of Life. His is the way of Truth, and the manner by which we should be governed.

    Does an Autocrat allow the decisions of an organisation to be determined by majority vote? Well that is how Solutions Barbados was managed from the time there was more than one member.

    Does an Autocrat found an organisation and then give it away to members of the organisation? Well, that is how Solutions Barbados was managed once we agreed on a Constitution.

    Does an Autocrat relinquish all previously held authority as founder, and allow members to freely elect their executive committee? Well, that is how Solutions Barbados is managed.

    So why keep repeating the same baseless accusation? Why is there no truth whatsoever in your accusation? Freedom alluded to it, but Jesus provided a clue in His answer to the religious leaders who were plotting to kill Him.

    “You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.” (John 8:44)

    Now that Waru has exposed you as trying to take over Atherley’s group, all of your personal attacks make sense. Since you think that I am standing in your way, you think that you have no choice but to attack me. Your problem is that I have known the Lord from my youth, and tried to live a responsible life.

    I have no skeletons to hide and no closets in which to put them. So if you are hell-bent on attacking my character, you must make up false things to mislead those who do not know me. Since you have been exposed as one of Atherley’s group, your actions, which previously seemed to be driven by lunacy, can now be seen as calculated hate. I will do as Jesus instructed below.

    “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I [Jesus] say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.

    “For if you love those who love you, what reward have you? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? And if you greet your brethren only, what do you do more than others? Do not even the tax collectors do so? Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.” (Matthew 5:43-48)

    it seems that there are others in the society who are not with Grenville & the Freedom crier

    Alive and well

    Published by Barbados Today on April 26, 2019
    Solutions Barbados, the fledgling pro-business party that faced the electorate for the first time in the 2018 general election, is half-way to fielding a full slate of candidates for the next poll, founder Grenville Phillips II has indicated, declaring the party is still very much alive.
    “Solutions Barbados is still active in Barbados. We have 15 candidates, the most after the Barbados Labour Party who have 29.
    “However, since the General Election, we have been ignored by the TV, radio and newsprint media while others have been promoted,” he said.
    “Many of us are in our constituencies every week. We write 52 articles each year, but they are ignored by the print media.
    Phillips said some of his former members who have joined the Opposition Leader Joseph Atherley decided to do so because they did not want to be restrained by contracts nor did they want to sign a contract to go bankrupt if they accepted bribes.
    He said: “The plan had one vulnerability: it could be frustrated if any of our members received bribes. So, we agreed to sign a contract to essentially go bankrupt if we accepted bribes.
    “For all 15 members that remain, that was a very good decision to make. For the few that left to join Atherley, we have others who are willing to take their places. However, we will be more careful with scrutinising new members,
    At the party’s annual conference next month, members are to vote on new leadership.
    Weighing in on a number of recent political developments, he criticised the new Bail Act as being unjust in depriving accused persons their freedom, suggesting that the accused found not guilty be compensated immediately.
    The Solutions Barbados president told Barbados TODAY: “If the authorities are so convinced of a person’s guilt to incarcerate for two years without bail and if they are subsequently found to be innocent then they need to be compensated forthwith not decades in the future.
    “The compensation should be at least twice the amount of money that they could have made had they been allowed to work. The amount that they could have made should be based on their maximum earnings over the past decade”
    On the issue of public transport, he described the Transport Board’s maintenance costs as a financial burden and said it was unconscionable to increase the fare without properly managing its business.
    He suggested that the state-owned bus company board implement the ISO 9001 international management standard in a bid to create a well-managed transport system.
    Speaking on the plastic ban which goes into effect on July 1st, 2019 he said it was complicated and unfair.
    Philips said: “After [holding] discussion with importers and manufacturers of single-use-plastics to understand their ordering commitments, they could have agreed on the day of a ban.
    “The ban should have been limited to the importation of such plastics. After the ban, the market should have been allowed to adjust naturally to the scarcity with alternative products.
    “It is unfair to persons who still have unsold plastic bags to simply destroy them. Why not use them until the limited supply is exhausted?,” he asked.

    Ignored by the media my foot! After the election last year there was an immediate void for alternative political thought and you guys sat on your hands. I know that an election campaign is expensive but lack of foresight by not taking advantage of this void shows political and strategic immaturity.

    Mr ISO9001 want candidates to sign contracts that will bankrupt them. this man is a bare joke.
    @ALIVE AND WELL; Solutions Barbados are coming with a full slate, Judas Joe will have his too, have not heard the name as yet. Mia put 3500 DLP yard fowls/voters to roost on May 24 last year with 2 or 3 other pretenders/Parties. What Solutions are you going to bring now? the DLP is dead and finished, no need to worry about them so its Judas Joe and Gadfly Caswell with their party and maybe Turncloak Arthur joining one of them.

    Boss dont waste your time. I see weatherhead fhe opportunist jump ship and hang onto Joe coat tails. I guess when you want to be noticed you would do anything. Truth is the next elections will have an opposition formed by Joe’s party along with any defectors from the BLP who might then be dusgruntul and cross the floor. After that the rest will just be pressure groups.

    Here you deliberately and dishonestly quote Joshua 24:15 out of its context and make it a pretext. This is the cardinal sin of Bible Interpretation.

    This is what Joshua 24:15 really says in its immediate context
    14Now therefore fear the LORD, and serve him in sincerity and in truth: and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the flood, and in Egypt; and serve ye the LORD.
    15And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.
    16And the people answered and said, God forbid that we should forsake the LORD, to serve other gods;
    17For the LORD our God, he it is that brought us up and our fathers out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage, and which did those great signs in our sight, and preserved us in all the way wherein we went, and among all the people through whom we passed:

    When people feel that they are hidden behind a false name in this on-line environment, they can be unrestrained in showing who they truly are. Jesus warned us all about persons pretending to be sheep. Inexperienced sheep normally mistake a wolf’s snarl for a smile. Here is Jesus.

    “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits.”

    “Do men gather grapes from thorn-bushes or figs from thistles? Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore by their fruits you will know them.” (Matthew 7:15 – 20)

    Given that the end of those consistently bear bad fruit is not favourable, why not look into the mirror and try to be better? Jesus will judge us all at the end of the Age. He has already provided much guidance on this matter. Stay clean.

    “Not what goes into the mouth defiles a man; but what comes out of the mouth, this defiles a man.” (Matthew 15:11)

    For years, I would craft respectful responses to try to start a meaningful discussion. But every attempt to constructively engage him was met with the same cursing and defamation, as if he were a raving lunatic.

    Piece is a bully. The typical response people have to a bully is to either try to avoid them, or to join them. Both responses are driven by the fear of being the next target. One only thing a bully hates is to be confronted. The only thing a wolf in sheep’s clothing hates is to be exposed.

    Now that Piece has been exposed as a divisive political operative, and will now have to pay for his wickedness, many are running to his aid. It seems like a scenario outside of a court where a fellow has been convicted of murder. A mother may claim that her convicted son is a good boy who never gave much trouble – he has his ways but he just needs to work on his ego. Please.

    This wolf has called you all a bunch of stupid sheep. Please do not prove him right.

    He can remain faithful to Atherley’s party and promote them to his hearts content, without any comment from me. But he should expect a response to future personal attacks.

    I cannot fault your advice.
    However, my experience with trade deals, is they are made to be broken, and no sooner has the ink dried, folks are seeking ways ‘around them’ or barriers to force compliance beyond the scope of what was agreed, or worse, protection. Entrepreneurship, drive and desire, is rarely fuelled by trade deals. Nor should trade deals be static documents. You only need observe POTUS, and appreciate he only recognizes those parts of deals he wishes to.

  • Hi Northern:

    Trade deals between similar economies may be broken by either party and the issue tends to get resolved equitably. Trade deals between larger and smaller economies do note resolve themselves equitably if the deal is broken by the smaller economy. The BLP is now understanding that with the corporate tax issue.

    — Act iv, Sc. 1

    And for What you Might ask?

    We all make mistakes and sometimes even when we think we are doing good things we sin as we may not have the correct motivation. We sometime think we are just being practical when we are been devious to ensure our own ends of satisfying our own Egos. Let me show you an example in Christ time and is written in John: The priests of the day that were supposed to represent Him (God), had Him killed to retain their station/power, They did this collectively as they did not want to lose their station in life, how they were viewed by people, their immense power over their subjects, so they plotted to kill the person they were supposed to represent and the reason for their priesthood. Showing the evil that lurks in all of our hearts and we should guard against it to stop Pride taking hold of us, it starts small and pretty soon it engulfs us that we no longer recognise who we are, we could even be guilty like the priest of His day of the following incorrect motivations because we have allowed our Pride, our Ego to get a foothold and as usual we find a scapegoat why we must act a certain way.

    47 ¶ Then gathered the chief priests and the Pharisees a council, and said, What do we? for this man doeth many miracles.
    48 If we let him thus alone, all men will believe on him: and the Romans shall come and take away both our place and nation. (John 11:47–48)
    53 Then from that day forth they took counsel together for to put him to death. (John 11:53)

  • A SELECT FEW ON BU ARE CONTINUALLY VILIFIED AND ACCUSED OF NOT RIGHTLY DIVIDING THE WORD IN ITS CONTEXT…

    SOME ARE CONTINUALLY VILIFIED AND ACCUSED OF NOT RIGHTLY DIVIDING THE WORD IN ITS CONTEXT…

    HERE IS A PERSPECTIVE OF THE LAW VERSUS THE SPIRIT OF THE LAW…

    In the New Testament, Pharisees are seen as people who place the letter of the law above the spirit (Mark 2:3–28, 3:1–6). In the Gospels, Jesus is often shown as being critical of Pharisees.

    According to Jeremiah, “the qualities of the new covenant expounded upon the old are : a) It will not be broken; b) Its law will be written in the heart, not merely on tablets of stone; c) The knowledge of God will deem it no longer necessary to put it into written words of instruction.”[3] According to Luke (22, 20), and Paul, in the first epistle to the Corinthians (1 Cor 11, 25), this prophecy was fulfilled only through the work of Jesus Christ,[3] who said “This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which will be shed for you.” Christ did not come to abolish the law but to fulfill it. His purpose was to encourage people to look beyond the “letter of the law” to the “spirit of the law”…the principles behind the commandments and the law’s intention. Jesus quotes the book of Deuteronomy and Leviticus: “All the Law can be summed up in this: to love God with all your heart, all your mind and all your soul, and to love your neighbor as yourself” (paraphrased).

    The Parable of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:25-37) is one of the New Testament texts to address this theme. The passage concerns a dialogue between Jesus and an “expert in the law” or “lawyer”. As described in verse 25 (“a certain lawyer stood up and tested Him saying, Teacher what must I do to inherit eternal life?,” KJV), the intent of the dialogue was to trap Jesus into making statements contrary to the law. Jesus responds by posing the question back to the lawyer, as already having knowledge of the law, (“What is written in the law?” verse 26) The lawyer quotes Deuteronomy 6:5 “You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind and your neighbor as yourself.”, KJV) and Leviticus 19:18.

    It is then that Jesus responds with the story of a man beaten by robbers who is ignored by a Priest and a Levite, but then rescued and compassionately cared for by a Samaritan. Priests and Levites were Israelites whose qualifications and duties were very meticulously set forth in Mosaic law…

    The letter of the law versus the spirit of the law is an idiomatic antithesis. When one obeys the letter of the law but not the spirit, one is obeying the literal interpretation of the words (the “letter”) of the law, but not necessarily the intent of those who wrote the law. Conversely, when one obeys the spirit of the law but not the letter, one is doing what the authors of the law intended, though not necessarily adhering to the literal wording.

    SO HERE ON BU DOCTORS OF THE LAW ONLY STIPULATE THE WRITTEN WORD THEY DO NOT GO BEYOND THE WORD TO THE SPIRIT OF THE LAW TO THE PRECEPTS AND PRINCIPLES THAT ANOTHER MAY BE CONVEYING WHO THEY MAY DEEM ARE VARYING FROM THE WORD (LAW).

    We get what we negotiate. Therefore, we should negotiate the most favorable deal that we can. We negotiated the worst possible agreement, so Europe do not have to break it. They can automatically succeed with very little effort, while we will likely lose regardless of our effort. The hope is that we will be allowed to negotiate a deal that is fair to the Caribbean.

    On revenue expectations of the current tax system, you need to direct that question to BERT. It is likely that they do not know since they seemed to be genuinely surprised by the OECD deadline, and crudely put something together at the literal last minute.

    The answer is that Solutions Barbados is standing in his way. He claims that I am an Autocrat. Let us examine the evidence.

    Does an Autocrat allow the decisions of an organisation to be determined by majority vote? Well that is how Solutions Barbados was managed from the time there was more than one member.

    Does an Autocrat found an organisation and then give it away to members of the organisation? Well, that is how Solutions Barbados was managed once we agreed on a Constitution.

    Does an Autocrat relinquish all previously held authority as founder, and allow members to freely elect their executive committee? Well, that is how Solutions Barbados is managed.

    So why does he lie? He will have to answer that question – but it may be a lie.
