TIt is a shocking business, a real catastrophe"
said M. Lanier, President of the French Line,
when he heard of the total loss of the 20,ooo-ton
cruise ship SS Antilles on a reef near the Grena-
dine island of Mustique last weekend. The huge
ship tried to navigate the channel between Bequia
and Musique despite radio warnings from a light
plane piloted by a Mustique landowner and warn.
ings from small craft. At four in the afternoon,
she struck a reef with a shock Islanders waded
out to meet life-rafts and all the passengers and
some crew were evacuated either to Bequia or
Mustique. Soon after darkness fell fire broke out
in the engine-room and by the next morning the
pride of the French Line was just a burnt-out
hulk lying on its side --- a total loss. Most of the
650 passengers and crew were later taken aboard
the Queen Elizabeth II, which was standing by,
and disembarke4 in Barbados.

On all sides we see a serious lack of discipline in this country.
At times one wonders whether we can make any headway as a people with
such a disorganized outlook so widespread. More than that, one is in-
clined to question whether the :condition of progress with some commun-
ities is not the continued overlordship of foreign rulers. Some societies,
left to themselves, quickly revert to seed.
I would regard-self-discipline as a system of inner constraint, the
operative word in this definition being "inner" since constraint may
come from within or be imposed from without. Naturally, inner constraint
is a superior force to external compulsion.
The essential function of discipline is the maintenance.and preserv-
ation of order. It can easily be seen that unless there is order in a
community, life and living is bound to become, in the words of Hobbes,
"solitary, poor, nasty, brutish and short."
Short, indeed. For we can imagine a state of affairs in which, for
example, som .drivers choose to drive on the right side of the road and
others on thk left. Literally, in such a community, life would be short.
So in a. disciplined community it being decided by legislative consensus
that driving should be on the left side, for example, one expects that
apart from the occasional odd deviate, all driving will take place
on the left side of roads:. If some drive left and others drive right, we
are in a thoroughly undisciplined and, one may add, disorganized community
where, apart from being short, life is constantly nasty and brutish.
I have taken an extreme example. But consider stop signs and speed
limits. Exactly the same reasoning applies. Is it not common daily occur-'
rence in Dominica for many drivers to disregard stop signs and exceed
'speed limits laid down by law? It is only recently that I had to swerve
sharply to avoid colliding with another vehicle coming in from a side
street without .stopping on the line when it was clear that I had the
right of passage. Most drivers in Dominica would think this a joke or at
least something not to be noticed. I glared on this delinquent driver
only to be asked by him whether I was scared. You see the kind of mental -
disorganization produced by a lack of discipline.
On the same theme, consider the speeding which takes place on Roseau
streets and other built-up areas. It is not a question of occasional
deviates, but a regular and widespread practice. What makes the practice
so widespread is that those whbse paid job and business it is to stop
such a dangerous nuisance do nothing about it and are themselves often
guilty, so that in this matter a system of indiscipline is built up and
it is difficult to know whether you are coming or going,
Have you ever noticed Dominicans in a queue? Under certain circum-
stances, a queue is the only practicable method of ensuring fairness of
treatment when there is a continual flow of persons to be served. Watch
a Dominica queue at a bank, Government office, shops., or even around
confessionals. Last comers, despite the evidence of others before them,
slip in at the head of the queue. If this happens in what used to be
the fish market, rows and fights ensue. In other more respectable Venues,
jostling and suppressed rage are the consequences of such indiscipline.
Now compare this with the English system of queueing where everyone
realises and accepts that on late arrival his place is at the bottom of
the queue.
In former times when individuals in their relationship with the pub-
lic exhibited lack of self-discipline, they were made to feel by the use
of the inferior type of discipline, namely, constraints external to them-
selves, that life cannot properly be lived in an atmosphere of indis-
cipline. Today, to a large extent, we have neither one type nor the
other, and so anything does.

(fr. paae ) Even in the other islands around us we have a reputation
for lack of discipline, a state of affairs which even from the stand-
point of other West Indians is not regarded as covered by the Dominican
ploy of indiscriminate camaraderie.
I would find it strange if discipline were not an ingredient in
substantial economic progress. I cannot conceive of the sacrifices,
abstentions and foregoings inevitably associated with progress being
freely undertaken in an undisciplined community. So that, in this view,
discipline like capital, markets and law and order is a prerequisite
for economic advance in the same way that it is for social development.
The copying has begun. As was well expected, the ruling Party i now
adopting the ideas which the Opposition Party made the basis of its de-
clared policy in the period preceding the recent General Election.
The Freedom Party had been in existence for only 2 years before the
October General Election; the Government had been in power for 10 years.
Yet, it is only after the Manifesto and Policy Statements issued by the
Opposition Party that the Government is now turning its attention to
the .measures outlined and proposed. All at once -we are hearing of
Government interest in those steps which Freedom had offered the elect-
orate. Let us enumerate some of them and at the same time ask the ques-
tion: why over these 10 years had the Government made no attempt at
bringing them into being, but is doing so within three months of the
Freedom Party's. manifesto?
Last week we heard of ministerial discussion with representatives of
the business community on the subject of reducing the selling price of
drugs and certain essential foodstuffs. The whole island heard this pro-
'posal from Freedom during 1970.
A team of experts on agricultural credit has been brought to Domin-
ica soon after the Election. A system of agricultural credit was one of
the priorities promised by the Freedom Party, as everyone knows.
Tourism. The Government has now brought in a firm of consultants on
tourism. The Freedom Party was plumping for tourism as an industry in
Dominica to offset the dangers which it saw- was building up for bananas
even while the Government was saying that it foresaw no future for tourism
in Dominica. in the near future.
I have already dealt ad nauseam with the enfranchisement of the 18-
year-olds: and the whole of Dominica knows that this step was Freedom
Party policy consistently in the face of determined Government opposition.
Yet this is to become law in the very near future.
The investment climate has been the preoccupation of the Freedom
Party in order to stimulate investment. While the Government does not
yet appear to want to go as far as the Opposition in this matter, it is
now calling upon the business and financial sector for co-operation,
whereas in September and October it was vilifying the very persons who
comprise this sector. At this point it is pertinent to mention that had
Freedom won the recent General Election, by now investment both local
and foreign to the tune of millions of dollars would already have
been under way.
Technical Education. This was one of the earliest proposals made by
the Opposition Party to serve as a basis for future industrialization
efforts. Just recently we heard about the proposed establishment of a
Technical College.
The Freedom Party had proposed an institution, modern in concept,
for dealing with juvenile delinquency. The Government, hoping to catch
votes:, announced just before the Election that it was setting up such an
institution (though limited in scope) at Mount St. Mary's. The Election
is over and so, too, talk or action in this matter.

Pounds, ounces, gallons, gills,pintn
yards, miles and all the other Imperial
measures will soon be 'out of style. *
Dritain is already turning over to the
decimal system, and many other counties
will be stepping into line, so it wont
be long before Dominica puts on her
make-up and dresses: herself to joinJ
But besides having the Imperial meas-
ures to cope with, there are also the
'local' measures to cause problems:
the 'car' of coal, 'chaupeen' of salt,
tpo'of farine ... not to mention a
handful' of red beans.
Because we have decimal money (dol-
lars and cents) already, people would
think we were quite settled as far as
money is concerned. But this is Dom-
inica, manJ We all know at least one
small shopkeeper who' still gives as
the price of things shillings & pence.
'Anty Balls,how much for 1 lb lamowi?
"Three shillings."
'"Mamal Sa cher oui,1 Anyway look
75 cents..." Any bystander who did -not
know would think us a bit wrong up-top.
Only last week I heard a Barbadian
lay her money on the counter in bewil-
derment and say:
"I cyan nnderstan' vunna Dominicans
nuh. You-all talkin' bout pounds weight
or dollar pounds?"
But I see her point, I used
to say (not long ago) "But Daddy I cant
understand how twenty shillings can
make one pound and I can't understand
those multiplying problems that nasty
hiss So-and So- gave us for homework,
and I can't understand why I can't go
and play.. ;lToday, however things seem
to be reversed:
"Listen'Ti-Moun I can't understand
why 2 + 1 = 10, and I can't understand
the New Maths problems that lovely Miss
Bo-and-So gave you, so why can't you
stop witheringg me and go and playV"
So things change, and to think of
all those agonising hours I sat on a
hard school bench and recited -
12 pence one shilling
20 shillings one pound (repeat...)
and to think it has all' one decimal,
ITew Maths and all learning
was in vain. I don't think I can keep
up with the changes, and see myself in
my old age asking a youth'for one gall-
on of gas, 1 lb. of sugar, 1 yard of
cloth &; 1 quart of good strong rum.
