Becoming Sane

grenville-phillips

Submitted by Grenville Phillips II

The main reason given for demolishing the structurally sound 6-storey old NIS building, is that it is not compatible with the “sacred ground” of the proposed Clement Payne park.

The Government did not properly maintain the building, and several workers got ill. We are told to believe that the building is a reminder of people getting ill, which is not compatible with what Clement Payne advocated.

We are told to believe that the building is beyond maintenance, having been abandoned for so long. It may be beyond maintenance, but it is clearly not beyond repair, and it is certainly very far away from needing to be demolished. But such thoughts are considered heretical.

To oppose the demolition is to be accused of being against workers’ right to a healthy work environment. To question why a building, with the most expensive foundation system in Barbados (piled), and no apparent structural cracks, should be demolished, is to attract the wrath of political operatives.

The public relations on this matter reminds me of George Orwell’s masterpiece, ‘1984’. It was written in 1949, and shows what happens to a society when the Government does not tolerate independent thought. I will extract part of it for your interest.

‘It is impossible to see reality except by looking through the eyes of the Party. That is the fact that you have got to relearn, Winston. It needs an act of self-destruction, an effort of the will. You must humble yourself before you can become sane.’

He paused for a few moments, as though to allow what he had been saying to sink in.

‘Do you remember,’ he went on, ‘writing in your diary, “Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four”?’

‘Yes,’ said Winston.

O’Brien held up his left hand, its back towards Winston, with the thumb hidden and the four fingers extended.

‘How many fingers am I holding up, Winston?’

‘Four.’

‘And if the party says that it is not four but five – then how many?’

‘Four.’

The word ended in a gasp of pain. The needle of the dial had shot up to fifty-five. The sweat had sprung out all over Winston’s body. The air tore into his lungs and issued again in deep groans which even by clenching his teeth he could not stop. O’Brien watched him, the four fingers still extended. He drew back the lever. This time the pain was only slightly eased.

‘How many fingers, Winston?’

‘Four! Four! What else can I say? Four!’

The needle must have risen again, but he did not look at it. The heavy, stern face and the four fingers filled his vision. The fingers stood up before his eyes like pillars, enormous, blurry, and seeming to vibrate, but unmistakably four.

‘How many fingers, Winston?’

‘Five! Five! Five!’

‘No, Winston, that is no use. You are lying. You still think there are four. How many fingers, please?’

‘Four! five! Four! Anything you like. Only stop it, stop the pain!’

‘You are a slow learner, Winston,’ said O’Brien gently.

‘How can I help it?’ he blubbered. ‘How can I help seeing what is in front of my eyes? Two and two are four.’

‘Sometimes, Winston. Sometimes they are five. Sometimes they are three. Sometimes they are all of them at once. You must try harder. It is not easy to become sane.’

‘Again,’ said O’Brien.

‘How many fingers, Winston?’

‘Four. I suppose there are four. I would see five if I could. I am trying to see five.’

‘Which do you wish: to persuade me that you see five, or really to see them?’

‘Really to see them.’

‘Again,’ said O’Brien.

Perhaps the needle was eighty–ninety.

‘How many fingers am I holding up, Winston?’

‘I don’t know. I don’t know. You will kill me if you do that again. Four, five, six–in all honesty I don’t know.’

‘Better,’ said O’Brien.

Fellow Barbadians, it is time to evaluate your progress. If you did not know your party’s position on the demolition of the old NIS building, would your response when questioned have been, “I do not know”?

If you know your party’s position, would you automatically agree with it? Do you enjoy when your party’s political operatives try to damage the reputations of those who do not similarly agree? If so, then you have been adequately trained to actively support a totalitarian state. Wise up.

  • Why are government buildings not properly maintained?

    Why do sewer and water systems fall into disrepair?

    Why does the government do such a poor job of collecting its tax revenues?

    Why do most statutory corporations and state-owned enterprises lose money year after year?

    The answer to all these questions is the same. Barbadians, like their fellow West Indians, cannot do a good job of organizing a two-car funeral.

    The management skills and the worker discipline required to run modern organizations successfully just are not there. But when you say this, no one believes you.

  • If something is really confusing you and you “don’t understand” and you wonder if you are going mad, or getting Alzheimers the best course is to “follow the money”

    Long ago and far away I has an elderly supervisor who thought that she was getting Alzheimers because she would put down things, principally money or valuables and then they would just ‘disappear.” She couldn’t understand this because she was working in an office with all “certifiably honest” people. Finally before she quit she beseeched our employer to investigate. The employer did and what did they find on camera too? The supervisor’s favorite employee, the one who used to “carry news to her” the only one in the office she had recommended for excellent work and excellent work ethics with her hand deep, deep, deep in the supervisor’s handbag. The employee was questioned and even in the face of the camera evidence which clearly showed her actions, denied that it was she. So the tape was played again and again so that she could see her own distinctive features very, very clearly. “Alas” the company had to let the “employee of the year” go. The supervisor is in her 90’s now and still has no sign of dementia or Alzheimers.

    When you “don’t understand” ALWAYS follow the money.

    I know that you int ask me neffen, but I is a malicious Bajan and I will answer anyhow.

    I once proposed to a senior government official, deputy head of his department, that what barbados needed muchmore than flyovers was sidewalks. He felt “no way” would that get a pass by decision makers, because he agreed with me that sidewalk are not sexy. i don’t worry for him because both of his parents lived to be over 100 years old.

    We need sidewalks so that people can walk short to medium distances in their own communities, so that most children can walk to school [but sidewalks are not sexy, not much STEAL in them either]

    We need decent public transportation so that everybody does not feel the need for a car to fet them to work on time, yet they end up being stuck in miles long trafic jams. The thig about decent bus services is that they can be so organised that many, maybe most people would have to walk 10 to 15 minutes to the bus stop. People would get 20 to 30 minutes of exercise everyday. Barbados would save tons of foreign exchange. [But buses and not sexy]

    We need to cook old fashioned sensible food at home, and stop making the fried grease merchants rich. This morning i had sweet potatoes stewed and eaten in their skins for breakfast, with a cup of coffee. My grandmother who may not have gone to school at all, since she was born in 1879 and I NEVER saw her reading anything and there were no books at her home, but she lived past her 90th birthday. I don’t know that she ever went to a doctor except during the last few weeks of her life. [But sweet potatoes stewed and eaten in their own skins sure int sexy]

    We need to stop believing that now we get big, or now we get to be big shots that our kidneys and livers and brains have also become big shots and are immune from prosecution by Mother Nature. Mother nature is a real-real bitch and she don’t care whether you are a big shot or not. She don’t care if you drink white rum straight outta a nip bottle or if you drink “top shelf” brandy, whisky or champagne. If you over indulge Mother Nature WILL tek ya down. She don’t care if you are a Prime Minister or Ninja Man. In fact Ninja Man might well be in better health than many of our political/economic class. He certainly looks fit and buff when he walks naked through Bridgetown, and he didn’t need any stomach bypass surgery to keep slim. He walks ’bout nuff nuff, maybe the walking ’bout keeps him slim [But nobody want to hear from Silly Women about their alcoholism]

    We smoking everything as we feel like. But smoking anything can’t be good for your cardio vascular health, even if the political/economic class tell you that smoking legal [again follow the money for this one] Bu alas, smoking anything and everything IS SEXY. Never mind that you may so damage your cardio vascular system that by 65 ya can’t get a hard on, and ya juices dry up.

    A lot ‘o we Bajans need the lord [But God sure int sexy]

  • I suspect the reasons for incompetence in the management of organizations go well beyond the politicization of public services.

    For example, if “best practices” in maintaining a unit of infrastructure, or collecting revenues or whatever, are not documented in sufficient detail, an organization can lose (or fail to acquire) the body of knowledge it needs for success, especially as older people retire and new people are hired.

    I have no idea why management problems are not kept at the forefront of public debates as Barbados struggles to raise its standard of living.

    The destruction of wealth that occurs because of incompetence seems to be a huge problem that wont go away anytime soon.

    “Our principal problem is one of poor management. The root cause is the politicization of our previously professional public services. The solution is obvious – better management, and the depoliticization of our public services.”

    GRENVILLE PHILLIPS BACKGROUND AND CREDENTIALS SPEAKS BOLDLY OF THE ROAD HE TRAVELED AND WHAT HE HAS ACCOMPLISHED…

    It is notable that in 2002, GP 11 was assigned responsibility was to develop an action plan to prepare the professional services sector to be internationally competitive by the Ministry of Economic as it was critically important to understand that trade agreements were negotiated to give a country’s industries a competitive trade advantage.

    GP11 OVERSAW A COMMITTEE OF OVER 25 PROFESSIONAL ASSOCIATIONS IN BARBADOS WHO COLLECTIVELY GAVE A CONSIDERABLE VALUE OF THEIR TIME TO THE TUNE OF APPROXIMATELY $0.5M to develop a report that “detailed strategies and actions that individuals and associations should pursue to allow Barbadian businesses to become internationally competitive. It also included the critical actions that the Government needed to complete to facilitate economic growth in the services sector.

    This Plan was Successful as it was designed too for those who put it into action. GP11 blazed the Trail in this effort by becoming the first person to qualify as a Chartered Structural Engineer in 15 years in Barbados. And you did not stop there you then trained others to successfully achieve the same international qualification.

    From The Grenville Phillips Column – The End Game, Part 2 – Choking on Worms…

    The Article speaks of the seeds planted and the Harvest reaped as he worked on projects worth over $500,000,000 over the next 5 years, and earned foreign currency in 10 Caribbean countries and was awarded for his efforts as the first service company in the Caribbean to attain the ISO 9001 quality management standard, winning the BIDC’s Exceptional Quality award.

    The plan was so successful that in 2014 he was the frontrunner of the National Innovation Competition, and president of Walbrent College.

    The break down came as the Governments B & D failed implement the critical actions to facilitate the economic growth of the sector. That is where the EU Exploiters stepped in dangling ‘Aid for Trade’ hook-worms to guarantee our participation.

    THE WORST THING EXPOSED HERE IS HIS HATE AND ENVY FOR GP11 BY THE RESIST AND OBSTRUCT TRIBE WHO WILL STOP AT NOTHING TO DISCREDIT HIM.

    MAY FREEDOM SUGGEST A DIETARY ALTERNATIVE TO THAT WHICH THE GP MAY BE ACCUSTOMED THAT SHOULD MOST DEFINITELY IMPROVE HIS HEALTH!

    After the body has rested and fasted during the night period of 6-8 hours, Start the day by drinking 20 oz. of water thus bringing oxygen to the cells before consuming food. Freedom has made this a Practice for over 20 years; A Fresh Squeezed Lemon may be added to regulate the PH Balance in the body. (Look at it like if your body is a garden being watered first thing in the morning to withstand the noonday sun.)

    After the body has fasted during the sleep period, Use fruit for Breakfast as it milder on the body at this time and digest within two hours while other food takes an average of four hours to digest.

    Stay away from stimulants found in coffee, tea, something Freedom has practiced for over forty years and stay off soft drinks. Herb Teas and Unsweetened Juice are Acceptable to which a Natural Sweetener may be added to suit the palate. Instead of Milk Shakes that are high in Sugar use Drinkable Fruit Flavoured Yogurt as a nice treat.

    Increase Protein Intake and Reduce Carbohydrate Consumption. Enjoy Heart Healthy Fats, Olive Oli, Avocado Oil, Coconut Oil and Butter. Fat Increases Energy while Carbs Reduces Energy…It’s a Fact!!

    Enjoy Fish, and Meats, Grilled and Baked and if fried use Cassava flour instead of wheat flour as the coating. Yes Fried Food is Acceptable!

    Stay off Wheat Based Products. Many Wheat Flours are from GMO grains and are the cause of many digestive problems and other problems like Sinus infections, bloated Gut etc. While Abstaining from wheat flour based products, use bread and other desired items that will delight the palate substituting wheat based products for those made with Almond and Coconut flour.

    In addition, abstain from Sugar, White and Brown and substitute Stevia or Algarve.

    Stay away from Canned Vegetables and other processed products of such like and only use Fresh Vegetables …

    Stay away from White Potatoes, and use Sweet potatoes, which are said to be the most nutritious vegetable there is. The Centurions of Barbados believed in their ground provisions and they drank lots of water filtered by our coral Stone.

    Freedoms life along with my companion, does not consume Caffeinated or Soda Drinks, we do not eat Rice, Sugar, Processed Foods such as Pastas, Candies, Cookies etc.

    We eat Nuts of Varying Types, Fresh Fruit and Dried Fruit among which Dates and Prunes are our Favourites. Freedom has tried being a vegetarian for Six years in the Past, but thankfully has seen beyond that stage and now enjoys being a meat eater once again…best thing ever.

    They Say that Diseases is the Outward Manifestation of DIS- Ease within the Body that are the cause of Cancer and such like eating away our Bodies… Hatred on the other hand will eat away our Souls…Something worthwhile considering Anyway!

    What I am proposing is that the building be professional cleaned by environmental specialty cleaners. If we don’t have such a company here they are several in Florida. This should be done AFTER the suggestions made to improve air quality by the engineers have been implemented.

    Next a private company should then be contracted to maintain the building after that. Along with this every 3 months test of the air quality can be conducted. If it will make the unions happy, one of their senior people can be made privy to the results of each test. After all we did say that we were going to be accountable and transparent didn’t we?

    This will not only free up the state from paying millions of dollars in rent, but will also bring badly needed traffic back to the city.

    If companies could go in New Orleans after Katrina and return hospitals to safe environments, surely the NIS Building is child’s play to such professionals.

    Every iccupied high rise office building should have a Health & Safety Committee, consisting of a professional building manager, employee representatives from each floor of the building, and management representatives.

    The Committee should meet at least every month, should be responsible for fire drills, review of air quality test results, pest control reports, reports on malfunctioning toilets, etc.

    If a building manager and an H&S Committee do their jobs, an office building cannot deteriorate to the point where it needs to be sanitized.

  • Hi David:

    Thank you for your query about the exhaust from the buses in the bus station and nearby streets.

    The buses collecting passengers are located over 50 m north of the old NIS building. Between the buses and the NIS building is a barrier of vendors’ kiosks.

    Wind blows in a predominately east-to-west direction. Therefore, exhaust fumes from the bus station are unlikely to affect persons in the NIS building. They would more likely affect persons west in Independence Square.

    It is more likely for exhausts, from vehicles at the road intersection bounding the NIS building, to affect NIS building occupants during times of low wind speeds. The main sources would likely be the minibuses that used the southern lane as a pick-up/drop off point, and buses that used the northern lane as a drop off point. That could have been solved by restricting those activities.

    Finally, the intake for the central air conditioning equipment should not be located in a location vulnerable to low air quality.

    The Probyn Street fire station is ideally situated for house fires in the City. By moving the fire fighters out of the city, and leaving a few in containers, this is not only highly risky, it also says more about this government and its incompetence than it says about the environment. Government by diktat. This is presidential despotism, not prime ministerial leadership.

Instead of sorting our the basics, and contributing to raising the standard of living of ordinary people, our president wants to pick a fight with Trump and Pompeo. Crazy. We are betraying our young.

    Doesn’t the government have great plans to achieve a zero emission target for all vehicles by 2030?

    What has happened to the plan to turn the buses into electric powered vehicles?

    What about banning the importation of all ICE-powered vehicles especially those bought off the second-hand market or crash heap and burning up a load of scarily scarce forex?

    What about turning Bridgetown into a more pedestrian-friendly place by restricting the amount of vehicles using the city as a thoroughfare to get to other places on the small Island?

    Why not use modern technology on a mini scale and take a leaf out of the city of London’s book of Congestion Charges?

  • Hi David:

    The demolition has nothing to do with Hyatt. When I heard that it was being demolished to make way for a park, I misunderstood it to be a car park. That would benefit the Hyatt and all of us.

    Demolishing the building as planned benefits no one – not even those who claim that the ground is sacred. It just does not make any sense whatsoever.

    1984 is relevant here because it only makes sense because the party says it makes sense. Therefore, it only makes sense to the sane. That is the central issue with the decision to demolish. We are being dragged too close to the edge, where no one is safe.

I repeat, there’s nothing wrong with demolishing a sick building to create a lovely, engaging city park instead of repairing/refurbishing it if the overall vibrancy, functioning and aesthetics of the city is improved and greater public benefits are derived.

But I was reluctant to give up on having another option and held on for a long time after Piece and GP had written him off. But the guy does not respond well to criticism. And that is why GP and Piece run him ragged because this is a problem. I am somewhat milder (unless called envious of my betters) but I share their opinion. Something is missing here.

    Piece the Legend

    The idea behind posting those “flow charts” seems to be one of suggesting the individuals named as directors of companies have off-shore bank accounts and/or are involved in money laundering.

    To be FAIR to Grenville Jr., the “chart” did not provide any evidence linking his father to any involvement in money laundering or having an off-shore bank account.

    However, under these circumstances, perhaps you should EXERCISE an EQUAL LEVEL of FAIRNESS, and also ask a SIMILAR question of your favourite Senator, Caswell Franklyn.

    “What is his stance about say, being illegally involved in money laundering WHAT WOULD WE AS THE PEOPLE EXPECT HIM TO DO?”

    After all, I remember a post from Jackie Stewart’s Facebook page was posted to BU, in which his name was shown on a “flow chart,” as a director of “KEMP Construction & Building Services,”….. and similar accusations of corruption were leveled at him.

    For your information, this is what Jackie Stewart had to “say:”

    January 20 2:59 AM: “BARBADOS: Senator low life Caswell maybe can give your take on this offshore Account . Seeing as you could give your take on my mother and I based on lies to Barbados Under ground talk your way out of this one.”

    And her fans responded:

    “Tony Blake: How do you feel now at Caswell Jackie said she’s going to come for you with hard evidence not hearsay read your offshore and we’d karma is a b****.”

    “Tony Blake: Everybody who was involved in that build got all offshore accounts does that tell you something.”

    For a site like what he suggested TO WORK, AND BE ATTRACTIVE TO BAJANS, it has to be secured someplace in the darkweb SO THAT USERS CAN PUBLISH THEIR CONTENT CONFIDENTIALLY and that content is safe thereafter.

    But you is not no literati yourself so I gine expect that sort of foolish reasoning from you!

    All you got pun bajan sheeple is dat you living in Amurica but, other than that, you is truly a piece uh sheeple pretending to be peeple

    Once again, I invite you to query your Wannabee politician Granville Phillips about what he would do IF HYPOTHETICALLY HE FADDAH was caught money laundering?

    You are an old ass hiding behind a keyboard trying to take potshots.

    I don’t need the Blogmaster to give me acknowledgement for anything.

    I currently am an paid expert in a number of technologies and consult with many major US companies on a weekly basis, that is fact not fiction.

    As it relates to Grenville Phillips11 father accountability that is not his responsibility.

    Can Mia Mottley Prime Minister speak for her father who has been accused of many unsavory things both locally and abroad?

    RE: “For me to ask Caswell WHO IS ONLY A SENATOR about the PdP in the presence of the Leader of the Opposition IS TO BROACH MUTINY!”

    I interpreted your question to Mr. Phillips II as a “man to man” question, rather than a “man to political party leader.”

    I’m sure you’re aware directorship “flow charts” were separately posted to BU, bearing the names of Grenville Phillips (which we subsequently learnt was Grenville Snr.) and Caswell Franklyn, perhaps in a malicious attempt to insinuate….. or mislead the forum into be(LIE)ving…… both gentlemen have offshore banks and are involved in “corrupt crap.”

    Now, if you’re going down the line of asking “man to political leader” questions, THEN, all I’m saying is, you should exercise an “equal level of fairness.”

    Therefore, “I (likewise) invite you to query leader of the People’s Party for Democracy and Development, Joseph Atherley, about what he would do IF, HYPOTHETICALLY, HIS SENATOR was caught money laundering?”

    Your usual, and now legendary, fairness on this, and all other matters you prosecute, is noted.

    I will comply with this just equal opportunity action (even though the Blogmaster doesn’t…)

    @ the Reverend Joseph Atherley
    @ senator Caswell Franklyn

    De ole man was wondering what would be the specific policy of the PdP if, your father, or tour respective family members WERE CAUGHT MONEY LAUNDERING?

    Given the fact that Owen Arthur’s brother was caught with illegal guns and some medical excuse was given AND THE CASE NOW SEEMS TO BE “LOST WAY”, de ole man wonders what would be your personal and political response to this scenario

    @ Artax:

    Deal with that!!

    If you can’t see the double standards where Justice in Bim is concerned then Barbados is really a “failed state” as consistently ‘prosecuted’ by your nemesis Hal Austin.

    Justice in Bim (especially when it comes to high-profile criminal matters) is primarily dependent on ‘who is who’ and who knows who.

    If not for Uncle Sam and his ‘fair’ enforcement role in the Donvillegate corruption affair Barbados would never see its rating on the corruption index drop faster than its credit rating under the arithmetically-challenged king clown of finance Senor Stinkliar.

    BTW, can you employ those highly-admired skills of yours and retrieve from your well organized archives what was the charge made against the Bjerk-me-off fella involving the killing of his son?

    Why not tell us what’s the legal difference between that killing scenario and that of Abijah who lost his life at the motoring death trap on the ‘covertly’ highway?
