Translation for all the non-Jamaicans: what that means is we are a culture of people - with strong individual opinions - who love to have discussions on everything - especially matters of global and social importance.
As a developing country, we feel the effects of decisions made by the developed countries - those richer and more powerful. Historically, we are given many "reasons" for their actions - actions that do not produce the results (more "reasons") they tell us to expect.
Therefore, we find ourselves trying to make sense of what appears sometimes to be nonsense. We find ourselves trying to figure out the methods behind the apparent madness. Most importantly, we find ourselves trying to "keep on keeping on" - otherwise known as survive. That is reasoning. And it is part and parcel of what makes us Jamaicans.
As Bob Marley said: "There is so much trouble in the world". How true. And we hear many "reasons". And we are given even more "reasons" for the solutions and that many more "reasons" for the failures of the solutions.
In true Jamaican style, this blog is just "reasoning the reasons".
I look forward, not back. I do not blame, I analyze. I observe, comment, and question.
And the objective? It's a better world for all people and generations to come.
