"The democratic system depends for its fullest success upon more-.than
having the right to vote. It requires participation in thingsof the mind.'
(- Royal Bank of Canada Monthly Letter : June 1971.)
This is why I am firmly of opinion that despite the vote, we do not
have democracy in Dominica. The Party which has been in power these past
10 years has ensured that the right to vote has become a merely mechanical
operation and that large masses of the people do not understand what the
whole issue is about. T;o me, this is murder of the mind and I feel that
the perpetrators-deserve the same penalty as that prescribed for murderers' 4
of the body.
; It is bad and unfortunate enough not to have access to information
and knowledge, but when'things are so manipulated by those in political
power that intellectually-deprived people are made to believe that .A is B
and black is white, then. I believe that no punishment in due course will
be too much for those guilty of such evil. For to.blind the mind of other,
particularly when they are trusting and unsuspecting, is, in my opinion,
the supreme evil. Our Lord.must have had something like this in mind when
He enjoined his disciples not to fear those who kill the body as much as
those who kill the spirit (or mind).
.Typical of what we are discussing today is the editorial policy of
the Ruling Party's newspaper under the editorship of Mr. Eustace Francis,
Speaker of the Honourable House of Assembly, Vice-President of the Leblano'
shoe Party (perhaps he will soon get promotion!) barrister-at-law, etc.etc.
Complex-ridden as his editorials indicate, he has one thread running
through his writings: that the Leblanc Party is made up of "petit" while
the Freedom Party is made up of gross bougs". He does not bat an eyelid
writing these thoughts from his home on the cool uplands of Trafalgar
where, from all accounts, he lives in baronial splendour, taking occasional
trips to 'Europe. It means nothing to him in his writings that for the
nost part his columnists are scions of the largest landowners of Dominica.
S(Icidentally, I understand that these financially powerful conaortia are
laying claim to the whole of the funds which the Regional Development Bank
has allocated for the large planters of Dominica as loans.) It does not
seem to matter to him that "the chief" is now lord of many broad acres in
the Vieille Case area; that the heaviest financial backer of the Leblano
'shoe party is a terrific commercial magnate; that members of one of the
historically most 'blue-blood' of local families are very prominent in the
Ruling Party; that a party which began with 'Centipede' and other "petit
bougs," has'now dropped them An favour of insurance brokers, eminent barris-
ters (some, however, unwilling to publicly identify), village magnates (as
at Castle Bruce) and a host of others which make the hierarchy of the
Opposition Party look commonplace.
The Editor of the shoe party newspaper reserves his very special barbs
for Miss Eugenia Charles, the President of the Opposition Freedom Party.
Now both Mr. Francis and Miss Charles are lawyers practising at the local
Bar. -That Miss Charles appears to be way ahead of him. in practice is to
be explained in terms of the free operation of the market in which clients
are the buyers. So if Miss Charles does enjoy a large share of the practice
and thereby, according to Mr. Francis' editorials, becomes a gross boug",
Mr. Francis has only himself to blame. And the same considerations will
apply to his other lawyer-columnis:t colleagues who, sure enough, were born
with more silver spoons in their mouths than was Miss Charles; their fathers
(unlike Miss Charles's) being professional persons and of the landed gentry
at the time of their births.
In a recent issue of the Leblanc shoe Party publication, Mr.Francis.
attempts to suggest to members of trade unions that their political place
is with his Party. Why? Because, he says, the President of the Freedom
Party is the President of the Employers' Federation. The Editor knows
that is untrue. The President of the Freedom Party is not even an officer
of the Employers' Federation Executive. t

CONSTITUTIONAL DICTATORSHIP by Anidrocles. (From p,2) Nor is she. in her
own right a member of the Employer's Federation.
If Mr Francis is right in saying that there is an inherent antagonism
between ALL the interests of workers and employers., Mr Francis as a
trustee pf a trade union should not receive briefs from capitalist con-
cerns and individuals.
The Leblancites always try to insinuaeb -iese erroneous and dividing
arguments in the minds of the masses and this they must continue to do
because their principal personalities are persons who in their own lines
have not been successes. Since this is so, it cannot be expected that
they can direct and manage the affairs of the community successfully.
Those who travel and know are aware that far more progress is being made
in the' islands: not far from us.
Again, it is because the leaders of the Government are not up to mark
that all important measures in the governance of Dominica originate- not
locally but abroad. At this moment their injgaation is coming from Guyana
and it is their intention, if the people of Dominica do not open their.
eyes in time, to bring us into the orbit of the Republic of Guyana. How-
ever, when the movement gets a little further, we may well see another
conflict between various segments of the Party. This is now more likely
than ever it was in the Ducreay-James.Stevens days, since their replace-
ments are persons less submissive to the will of the dictator, the nexus
being cash, not ideology. And let us never forget it: the Leblanc Party
is a monster whose favourite meal is its own members.
So to-.come back to Mr Francis' invitation to trade unionists to throw
in their political lot with the Leblanc shoe Party, it is well for him
to know that the trend is likely to be in the opposite direction, for the
very simplereason that trade unionists are not expected to join a polit-
ical party merely because it embodies the word "labour"in its title. This
was the nonsense preached to the people of the backwoods of Dominica by
Leblanc, but enlightenment is catching up with his Party and will become
its downfall. Trade unionists are aware that the better and more sensible
the.Government, the more likely the opportunity of improving the stand-
ard of living. So they should go for that Party which appears to have
'workable plans for development and whose ideas originate in Dominica, not
from.mentors in ideologically doubtful countries.

To end thispiece, let me bring to notice an extract from one of the
study papers prepared for the Caribbean Ecumenical Consultation for
Development to be held in-Trinidad in November coming. Note how approp-
riate it is in the context of Dominica:

"As a concomitant to ideological barrenness, our politic-
al systems are becoming less and less acommodative to
change. A basic premise of the Westminster-originated
political system is that a regular interchange of power
will normally occur between the major parties. The dark
days ahead for the constitutional orders in the Common-
wealth 'Caribbean are evident from the increasing preval-
ence of what have beeh called "constitutional dictator-
ships" --- the continuing hegemony of one party through
frequent re-ordering of voting regulations and the re-
structuring of constituency boundaries."
To which we may add, reflecting Dominica experience,.the shameless
use of Government funds for the maintenance of the "constitutional

Congrats I say to you for putting
on such a show. It is good to see
that the people are taking an inter-
est in such things.The show was well
performed but not well organised in
that the public didn't have proper
seeing facilities; another point I
have to stress is that they (the
Waitukubulis) should have had the
loud speaker operating well before-
hand. The show was originally sup-
posed to start at 8 o'clock but the
loud speaker gave trouble and so
during the interval the crowd got
restless, rude, unmannerly etc.This
is a grave fault because it disturbs
the youth (not starting on time).
A higher stage where the big aud-
ience would have been able to see
and people wouldn't hinder the dancers,
the bqadr dance group, folk singers
etc. would have been a good thing.
Perhaps in Windsor Park with proper
seating facilities? Surely no money
should be taken for the seating. I
know it is not Waitukubuli's fault
because Windsor Park is not in shape
since the tropical disturbance; sec-
ondly they thought the people would
have more sense and stay a bit out-
side. This was not so; people cram-
med up close to the stage and some
times fumbled on it and a drunk made
a disturbance. But apart from all
these troubles the show was definitely
What my eyes especially caught was
the lovely costumes and of course the
faces of the dancers. In among those
gazing I saw a number of school teach-
ers. Mr. A.Lazare was M.C. The Gov-
ernor's daughter Miss Jos6 sang a
patois song Madame Blondel about a
woman who had lovers and Mr.D.Caudeiral
read a poem by himself.
Any time the Waitukubulis have a
performance you will find me there.
On page three of last week's paper we
printed "a total of six million gallon
of juice p.a." -- this should haveread
"600,000 gallons". The fault was not
loaded with honou s: hard work ahead.
