Difficult Conversations – Giving Away Your Birth-right

Every human being, regardless of nationality or economic situation, has the same birth-right. It is their right to be true to themselves. This may be called personal integrity – a consistent and uncompromising adherence to truth, regardless of the beneficial or harmful consequences of doing so. This right is for a lifetime.

Knowing what is true of a specific issue may not always be known, but it may be found through honest evidence-based (or scientific) discussion of that issue.

Adherence to truth is an invaluable possession. Like any other possession, it can be traded. Since it is invaluable, it cannot be purchased, because there is nothing of comparable value. It can only be exchanged. Exchanging truth for truth is a meaningless exchange. Truth can only be exchanged for a lie.

LEADERSHIP.

There are two types of leaders – those who serve, and those who are served. All of us are born entirely dependent on others for our survival. As we grow into adulthood, we desire to be both independent, and all that we can be. Servant-leaders implement policies that facilitate that personal growth, so that people can reach their potential.

For various reasons, some people prefer to be dependent as adults. Whether because of trauma or mis-education, some people have no real aspirations and are fearful of being independent. They prefer to serve parent-leaders, and are content with symbolic declarations of illusory aspirations.

PARENTING ADULTS.

Leaders who are forced to lead a dependent people are doing something unnatural. Responsible parenting prepares the next generation to become independent. A generation that prefers to serve a parent-type leader, rather than soaring, needs additional training to prepare them for adulthood.

Leaders are not supposed to parent adults. When they take on that role, despite their best intentions, they can only turn that loving natural act into something tragically grotesque. For example, a servant leader will aim to provide an economic environment where parents can easily care for their elderly parents. Parent-leaders will aim to force the elderly in institutions, where they can be efficiently attended to.

Paradoxically, the deeper the care that motivates parent-leader policies, the more the implementation of those policies tends to retard and suffocate the led.

THE AGE OF TYRANNY.

Those most retarded in their development, tend to initially view increasing Government forced control as a comforting motherly embrace. Those who desire to soar will feel the tightening yoke of oppression. If the public rebels against the suffocating policies, the nation may enter an age of tyranny as leaders forcibly try to maintain control.

Every nation has its extreme radical activists with unpopular radical agendas. Extreme radical activists continually invite leaders to force their radical agendas on the public. Wise leaders decline those invitation. Unwise leaders do not.

Parent-leaders who attempt to force radical agendas, that are not supported by truth, on a country, cause the people to confront their true selves. Those citizens are presented with the clear choice of either sacrificing their personal integrity to support their leader’s adopted agenda, or standing for truth. Barbados was recently tested in this manner.

EXCHANGING TRUTH.

In an age where almost all white persons were: racists, white supremacists, and/or enslavers, Horatio Nelson was the rare anomaly. He went against the racist cultural norms of his time, and employed and promoted black persons the same as whites on his ships. He hated slavery – with a passion, and likely freed more slaved outside of North America than any other person during his lifetime.

Nelson demonstrated excellence in the pursuit of truth. Following his death, several statues of him, of varying quality, were erected. The statue of perhaps the finest quality, was erected in Barbados over 200 years ago.

THE BIG LIE.

Recently, some of our extreme radical activists wanted Nelson’s statue destroyed. To achieve their agenda, they promoted Nelson as a: racist, white supremacist, enslaver, and mass murderer of Barbadians – without evidence.

More contemporary books were likely written about Nelson than any other person. Those books were written, during the racist slavery era that he lived, by his: colleagues, enemies, and independent historians. Those books contained the good, the bad, and a lot of ugly about Nelson. But none of them accuse him of being a: racist, white supremacist, enslaver, or mass murderer of Barbadians. That is a recent invention.

DEFENDING TRUTH.

I wrote five evidence-based cited research-articles to investigate the truth. Our radical activists responded with racial slurs. They also ignored thousands of documents in the historical record, and point to a single unauthenticated letter, published in an obscure slavery-supporting newspaper, years after Nelson’s death, that did not justify their claims. Further, the likely forged letter is not part of the recipient’s formal collection of letters received.

I was asked why I was defending that white enslaver of our ancestors. I repeatedly explained that I was defending truth, not Nelson. I further explained that once we crossed the boundary of deliberately accepting lies over truth, just to support an agenda that we may support, that we would damn the next generation to a life of tyranny.

The credible historical record of Barbados contains persons who are provably: racist, white supremacist enslavers, and mass murderers of black Barbadians. Our extreme radical activists do not target them, for the apparent reason that it does not tempt Barbadians to exchange their birth-right for a lie.

FEELING THE PRESSURE.

Some of our activists are opposing the Government’s foreseen military-managed forced mandatory vaccination program. Others are opposing being forced into Republicanism. However, this is only the beginning. Despite being manipulated into opposing camps, every camp will eventually feel the pressure.

Barbadians should rightfully protest against the pressure. However, like Sampson not knowing that his hair was cut, our activists and their supporters seem oblivious to the fact that they have already given away their personal integrity – and have none left.

So, if he accepted the status quo and did not advocate in any significant way for our freedom….

    …..then, he could not be our hero!

    Grenville, like most people, are want to mix up truth with ideology.

    For example there is no science to support his perception about religious truths yet he defends those known lies to the hilt.

    He may not even be willing to concede that religion is merely an attempt to commodify spirituality.

    That in itself represents a betrayal of what he deems to be an inborn right to be free from this concoction of man.

    Moreover, this sibject has been the battlefield on which many forests have been surrendered, in the literature. Maybe a review of that may better prepare the writer for such an intervention.

    People should provide evidence to support their claims. That evidence should be rigorously examined before reaching a conclusion. That is the path I follow.

    The research I did was original. The evidence in the historical record is easily available for anyone else to read and reach their own conclusions.
    As explained, Nelson fought against the racist cultural norms of his day. He was likely the lone non-racist of his time. He demonstrated his opposition by freeing any enslaved that got to any of his ships. He also paid and promoted black persons the same as white persons. Why not read the evidence for yourselves before condemning him?
    To use the standard that many are using to judge Nelson would result in many persons today being guilty of sex-slavery – since few actively oppose it. Clearly that is an unreasonable standard to use. However, Jesus warned that we would be judged with the same measure that we judged others. Why condemn yourselves?

    The British colonised Africa in about 1870. When they heard of all of Africa’s valuable natural resources such as gold, diamonds, silver, ivory, rubber, salt and more, they did not hesitate on conquering the land. African colonies and needed the requisite labor force to extract them and simultaneously build the colonial city around these industries. Because they viewed native bodies as degenerate and in need of taming, violence was necessary to create a submissive labourer Colonisers viewed this violence as necessary and good because it shaped the African into a productive worker. They had the simultaneous goals of utilising the raw labor and shaping the identity and character of the African. By beating into the African a docile nature, colonisers ultimately shaped and enforced the way Africans could move through colonial spaces. The African’s day-to-day life then became a show of submission done through exercises like public works projects and military conscription.

    “Generally speaking, of course we are absolutely against the commission of crime by any person but most especially by attorneys-at-law who know the law and should know better,” Smith- Millar said.”

    I am not expecting anyone to put up a statue of me. I am, in no way, shape or form, a hero. I have done some good stuff, helped out a few people, stood up for the rights of a few others but I do not deserve to be placed on a pedestal anywhere, far less Bridgetown. I could write you a very long list of people who are more deserving.

    My judgment of Nelson only goes as far as whether or not he merits a statue.

    I am quite willing to be judged as I have judged him.

    I do not believe for one minute that Saint Vincent does not have a functioning body scanner.
    He is being treated in Barbados solely for his own personal safety. Apart from assassination I have never heard of such a brazen attack on a head of state. We should all condemn such an attack.
    Covid-19 has exposed the weakness of Caribbean countries. Do our leaders have the stamina and the credibility to make a difference in the lives of their citizens? I believe not. It is inevitable that some will fall by the wayside.
    It will be very interesting to see the length of time he decides to recuperate in Barbados.

    Vincentians believe he deliberately provoked the situation, knowing how he has treated the people for YEARS and how they would react……the same dumb slaves keep reelecting him to the detriment of others…because he plays them like a violin…we have to wait and hear what he actually did, he is known to be very wicked….and slime like that, don’t maintain anything that Black populations need to survive, you get the same thing in Barbados, as long as it’s Black taxpayers paying the bill, it’s not appreciated….. they call it “mash up and buy back” they take care of nothing, maintain nothing, just waste taxpayer’s money and that is only what they don’t tief..

Clearly that is an unreasonable standard to use. However, Jesus warned that we would be judged with the same measure that we judged others. Why condemn yourselves?”

    Then we have reached some agreement. He does not merit a statue. There was no need to have one of him in Barbados.

    Where we seem to disagree is the method or removing him. I think that inventing history to trash his reputation is not the way. I do not agree with that end-justifies-the-means approach.

    Jesus said that satan is a liar and the father of lies. He also said that when satan lies, he speaks from his resources. I think that dishonesty, lies, and deception an unnecessary way of achieving agenda aims.

    We are not interested in destroying all things the British built. Most of us have their blood in our veins. We are interested in removing the symbols of white supremacy which are part of a damaging and conflicting narrative told from the perspective of our oppressors.

    We are trying to reframe our history from the perspective of the black majority.

    The lion has no impact on that process.

    That is very convenient for you. Nelson is only despised if you believe the lie of his accusers – who provide no credible evidence for their accusations.

    The lion is clearly the symbol that should attract objections – which was provably constructed by military officers stationed in Barbados to directly maintain the empire. Unlike the Navy, which directly fought against external threats (France, Spain, etc), the military in Barbados was to assist with rebellions – like when they were called upon to quell the Bussa rebellion (no one called for the Navy then).

    For the record. I am not advocating for the removal of the lion. I am simply pointing out the convenient hypocrisy of defending the lion while falsely accusing Nelson. What is consistent is that it requires persons to sacrifice truth for lies to do both.

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    There is some merit to this aspect of your argument that Nelson was not the full-blown pro-slavery racist as he has been painted by the Bajan band of hypocrites. .
    Who or what could have been more pro-slavery and racist than the Anglican Church in Barbados?

    Has it apologized, as yet, to black Barbadians (the descendants of the victims) for the pivotal role it played in one of the worst crimes committed against humanity in the name of some god painted in the image of some European created god which you yourself have swallowed hook, line and sinker?

    We submit that Lord Horatio Nelson was indeed a professional Naval officer of the highest standard since he recognized that some black sailors were just as talented as some of his ‘Limey’ white officers even if the blacks were employed initially in the capacity of cooks, sexual consorts or gun-powder monkeys.

    The contradiction which lies to the heart of your argument- as “TheOGazerts” has pointed out in the most incisive manner- is why a white-dominated Bajan society of that time of endemic chattel slavery in Barbados would want to erect a statue to a man who, according to your argument, represented the antithesis of their pro-slavery values?

    Instead of waging a futile war over Lord Nelson’s historical value to a modern Barbados-and which can only end in a mere Pyrrhic victory in the form of a white-painted lion at Gun Hill- why not consider the much underestimated and long overdue recognition of the role played by another seafarer aka merchant seaman a real Barbadian hero by the name of Milton King?

    Why not recognize this man’s ultimate sacrifice in his heroic stance against apartheid in South Africa where white supremacy still lingered even 120 years after the abolition of slavery in the original colony of apartheid called Barbadoes?

    Comissiong’s facts not all up to date

    Allow me to congratulate Ambassador His Excellency Mr David Comissiong on his 35-page booklet – The Clement Payne Story.
    It is a noteworthy addition to the growing set of publications we now have on that period in Barbados’ history when, as Dr George Belle has stated, the Barbadian masses attempted to effect a revolution.
    His Excellency utilises considerable “primary sources” in order to establish that Clement Osbourne Payne was the catalyst for the uprising on 26th, 27th and 28th July 1937. The collection of data is impressive and thus establishes His Excellency as a major authority on Mr Payne and his political career both in Barbados and in Trinidad.
    Tell us why
    However, His Excellency needed to tell us about Mr Payne’s connection with Uriah “Buzz” Butler and why he (Payne) came to Barbados in March 1937.
    More importantly he needs to upwardly revise his figures of the persons shot by police. If he had consulted Dr Henderson Carter, head of the History Department, University of the West Indies Cave Hill Campus, he would be aware that over 45 (not 14) black Barbadians were shot and killed by the black policemen on those days in July 1937.
