In the APC-SLPP political dialogues, mostly shoot-outs conducted through the media and the various fora,
Thesis and anti-thesis.
Synthesis is what the theorists do (based on reality)
The politicians and their mouth-pieces are less interested in compromise
as if there is no shared ground
(the country Sierra Leone)
with the slpp usually believing that only what they do or are capable of doing is good
only they have a monopoly on the truth
have visions& new directions which they will succeed in implementing 100%
are probably getting ready to swear on the Holy Bible
that he ( Machiavelli) is going to behead corruption and he himself
he ain't going to steal a cent
that's how it can be in Sierra Leone politics
with one side determined to paint the other side as being the illegitimate sons and daughters of
Iblis or Judas...
Whilst Deconstructing ART is pointing at what can be called “WORK IN PROGRESS” ( on-going development projects)
is ART suggesting
that the SLPP would have done all that the APC has accomplished 2007-2012 in addition to the New Directions being proposed by Colonel Bio?
NO he is not suggesting that, he is suggesting a difference in priorities, his own position being that wiping out people's sufferation is more urgent than building the rail railway from Freetown through Bo to Pendembu and then to Bamako
the railway's standing still
and when the engine's stoker is not singing Valerie
“ Oh di train foh Bo ee noh wan gree foh go
di train foh Bo ee noh wan gree foh go
di train ee don tire
ee noh get any fire
Both ART ( His Master's Voice) and Deconstructing ART are proponents of their chosen thesis
and although both directions have a lot in common, when these two argue you would think that there is no common ground ( the country Sierra Leone
that one is
of the other
In fact, whilst the SLPPers are fond of saying that some of the APCs good works in progress are actually development projects started by the SLPP,
so too all the development projects completed by the APC so far can also be said to be part of the foundation, to all future Sierra Leone development.
Rome wasn't built in a day.
Nor was New York
Some of the SLPP people would like to give the impression that all that the APC has accomplished sine they took office in 2007 2007-2012 can only be termed
acts of destruction
in their hearts they know
that this is not so.
