Huge Divide Between Politics, Govt

Wednesday, April 19, 2017

The “failing state” statement of years gone by still resonates today, even more ominous than before. Dr Bhoe Tewarie’s then extreme characterisation seemed harsh, but turn now to the year of Our Lord 2017—where are we today?

Systematic decay, institutional failure plague us at all levels, defined by the lack of success, judged by its definition, results or failure.

The need for strong effective leadership, promised faithfully on the campaign trails, now blows like dust in the wind; reality hits home—there is a huge divide between politics and government.

Theory is derived from political views, ideologies, but the truth is that running a country, which is governance, seldom accommodates political theories, because societies are built from the ground up.
