I have examined the concept of “No Guilty Race” and found the concept to be deficient.
Saying “No Guilty Race” is like saying that a person can steal but because other people steals no one is guilty of theft. Yet, theft did occur. The mindset needs to be adjusted to “Every race has its miscreants who must be challenged”. This allows us to come to an understanding that people are not infallible. The really guilty ones are those who defend the “thieving” as justified.
I have also read about Shared Governance being proposed as a panacea for Guyana’s problems but am yet to believe that such a system will work without the necessary prerequisite trust. Those who are proposing shared governance certainly are not working to end ethnic insecurity in Guyana, hence to develop trust. Which leads me to believe that it is not the sharing part that they are interested in: they are solely interested in governance (power). They basically want to be in power forever and ever no matter how incompetent they are. Such unadulterated lust for power does not bode well for Guyanese.
Better we shun such power hungry people from our midst. Why are you supporting such power hungry people anyway?
Guyanese were united in the fight for Independence. There is no reason why we cannot be united again. This is where consensus politics comes into play. Consensus politics is whereby we work together developing trust through cooperation. We can certainly look at where we can work together to remove the distrust between people. Under a Joint Economic Development Initiative (JEDI) we look at each other as partners in development rather than competitors, which may be how those proposing shared governance see Guyanese.
