Fulfilling Leclerc imperative:debt, free trade, wage slavery
by Ezili Danto
genocide is going on in Haiti right now. When only a handful of Haitians are working, when theres 70% unemployment and those actually formally working are only making .22 cents (70 gourdes) an hour and forced to pay the Haitian Oligarchs for food to eat at high U.S. import prices, starvation is a given. It's economic slavery. The slavery in Haiti the media won't expose.
This conversation for dual citizenship won't change the miserable status quo for Haiti's majority, only allow for the white colonial blueprint to continue. Haiti's Parliament is already too non-Haitian as it is. These folks are not only paid by foreigners, they've adapted wholesale foreign methods, modes and values that make no practical sense to Haitian existence.
There could be a 110-degree heat wave outside and these folks are wearing dark, three piece suits, speaking in ecclesiastic French most don't even understand and mimicking English debating rules that have no root in Haitian traditional conflict resolution!
Genocide in Haiti: Fulfilling Lecler's imperative through debt, free trade, privatization and wage slavery
They're using Roberts' Rules as their Parliamentary procedure when African mediation have little to do with Western notions of Bourgeois democracy or other such values, Euro-cultural profit-over-people imperatives and so-called cost-effectiveness rules. They've been pacified into fighting using Queensbury rules when the Haitian people's enemies use no rules, only overwhelming power and shock and awe to paralyze and destroy the poor's will to fight. Tout se makak madigra. Kiyes politisyen sa yo ap sevi si se pa blan kolon? Jounen jodi a, se yo ki zouti kap tranche nashon an. Afè Lakou a, konbit la, travay tè, pataj, Kreyòl, Vodun, Sevi lasosyete, kòmand Desalin, paròl Grandèt yo, ah! Sa pa gade yo. Yo vle fè sa blan ap fè. Anbasadè Meriken e Bill "Sonthonax" Clinton se Dye pa yo.
Moreover, it not hard to imagine the mentally colonized, visa-carrying privilege Diaspora, exerting their power over the Haitian, without dollars, jobs and visa power, living inside Haiti. Thus increasing our fear of each other. Said fear, divides and thereby assist our traditional enemies and keep Haiti from moving forward. Let's recall Sonthonax came to uphold the rights of the Mulatto to vote and to maintain slavery of the Africans in Haiti. The Haitian revolution got rid of physical enslavement. Today, economic enslavement reigns unfettered.
Fifty years from now, if the paradigm doesn't change, what the Spanish did, within 30 years of setting foot in Haiti, - that is, cause the death of all the inhabitants, one million Taino-Haitians, will be matched by today's "International Community" with the genocide of perhaps 9-million Afro-Haitians living in Haiti. That's when Haiti shall be developed, no longer stigmatized and at peace. For, Lecler's imperative shall have been fulfilled, albeit over two centuries later with the Blan's bicentennial return conquest of Africa's negroes in Haiti that started in 2004. (See, The Kidnapping Coup).
"It is not everything to have removed Toussaint, there are two thousand other chiefs here to have taken away...Here is my opinion of this country. It is necessary to destroy all the negroes of the mountains, men and women, sparing only children under the age of twelve, and destroy half of those of the plain, without leaving a single colored man in the colony who ever wore an epaulette. Without that, the colony will never be at peace." ---French General Charles Victor Emmanuel Leclerc
Part of the reason Leclerc's peace and security has not been accomplished sooner is because, for close to two centuries, the Haitian majority did not depend on the Euro/US dollar to eat. They grew their own food, had the Lakou and Konbit (cooperatives) and went to market to barter for what they did not grow. That system has been destroyed by free trade in the last 30 or so years. Dependency on the Mulatto/Freedmen/Affranchi or "Black" bourgeoisie as metastasized today in the new face of the deracinated Haitian Oligarchy, who get their liberty by being more into the US/Euro monetary system/capitalism and white profit-over-people culture than the whitest of white man, to bring Africa's children food is death. Who doesn't understand that? (To understand further the US/Euro monetary system, go to: Zeitgeist Addendum; for this entire article, go to: Ezili's HLLN on Dual Citizenship, No, Not a Priority.)
