The impure mind always sees negatively
An Indian philosopher said “it is the impurity of your mind that is mainly responsible for brining to your notice only the dark side of other.”
According to the most of the private media, the government under the PPP has not done anything good for the Guyanese people and it seems as if Fredrick Kissoon was given the license by the Kaieteur news to attack and find faults on a daily basis on the PPP, it members and supporters.
(It was like during the cold war when the USA administration employed most of the political scientists in the world to find faults in Marxist philosophy.) No private media in any other part of the world do this except the media that are owned by political parties.
If the private media do such a thing they will have to bear the burden of their actions.
In Guyana the press writes without any restriction yet the government is being labeled as a dictator (elected dictator, communist dictator, Hitler dictator, Castro dictator etc) and is accused of suppressing Press freedom on a daily basis.
In the USA (the most democratic country), Bill Mahar and his program (Politically Incorrect) was taken off the American Television network because he just said that the suicide bombers are brave people. If some thing like that happens in Guyana there will be demonstration around Georgetown and the private news media will have field days.
Fredrick Kissoon always claims that in no democratic country does the government have its own television station and press. Fredrick Kissoon studied in Canada and I am sure he knows that the CBS (Canadian Broadcasting Station) which has it net work through out the country is owned by the Canadian government. In Canada and the USA the media may not be owned by the government but they have great influences in them. There were many top reporters who were fired by the station because they were critical of the policy of their government. Presently Don Radar is in a court battle with one of the television stations that fired him sometime ago.
Unlike most of his critics who used their education to help themselves, Dr. Jagan used his education to fight for the rights of the Guyanese people who were exploited. He did not look for wealth or the safety of himself but fought what he believes in until he died. Although his fighting was no different from those of Nehru, Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela etc. his critics especially Fredrick Kissoon slander him and praises the rest.
The critics claim that the opposition to the government is not allowed access to the government media. The government media carry news about the government and not the views of political parties. The PPP party has it own news paper (Mirror), the PNC (The New Nation) and the other small parties have their own way of getting their news to their supporters. It is true that sometimes I read articles in the Chronicle from the mirror but these are not articles about the good of the PPP and the bad of the opposition but articles about everyday issues. One time the Stabroek News carries Mrs. Janet Jagan article.
When the PPP was in government between 1957 and 1964, their achievements were outstanding. From 1965 it started to deteriorate and by 1992 Guyana was classified as the begging bowl of the Caribbean. In a short time under the PPP administration the begging nation which had no money is now deemed as a financially sound nation and the progress that it had made so far is outstanding. Even the blind can ‘see’ the progress.
Those with impure mind sees negative in the positive.
