Human Dignity Matters

Human rights do matter; and so does the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Clearly, then, the right to life should be considered and described as the world’s number one right thing owed by every human person; regardless of gender, age, social condition, faith, creed, race or disability.

National Development Nixed

A very recent IDB study confirms something most Bahamians already know:- we have managed – by crass neglect -to nix this nation’s development; and so, we now learn that the Inter-American Development Bank has found that The Bahamas is now wallowing in a situation where youth unemployment is perniciously and persistently high and where there [...]
