Terror, Justice and the Soul Thieves
commonsense #475 by John Maxwell

JULY 17, 2005


Many people believe that writing a column is duck soup. You just think of something that intrigues, concerns or provokes you in some way, sit down and blast off. It isn't that simple; and it can be a horribly frustrating job.

For instance, I had last week intended to review a new book by the Caribbean scholar, Clinton Hutton entitled "The Cosmological Roots of Haitian Freedom: the logic and historical significance of the Haitian revolution".

Dr Hutton's book is no less than a bold and in my opinion, entirely successful guerrilla attack on the premises of modern historiography, an overwhelmingly racist enterprise whose major purpose has been to relegate Africa and all its children to an enclosure of historical curiosae, a kind of intellectual zoo.

Hutton, quotes Toussaint's reply to Napoleon Bonaparte who had attempted to impose conditions on Haiti's sense of self, after the Haitians had already
thrown out one Napoleonic army and were on the point of defeating a second.

"It is not a circumstantial liberty conceded to us that we wish, but the
unequivocal adoption of the principle that no man, whether he be born red,
black or white, can become the property of his fellowmen."

As Hutton says: "Toussaint's incisive reply to Bonaparte must be counted philosophically and politically as one of the most radical, most important epistemological and ontological statements on justice in human intercourse, not only of the modern age, but of any age....Soon, the revolution would combine abolition with self-determination, thereby transforming it from an anti-slavery revolution to a national liberation/anticolonial revolution: the first such revolution in the modern world."

The Haitians spoke of and demanded the recognition of universal human rights, and insisted that civilisation demanded justice for all, no matter the color of the skin or any other characteristic. It is a principle not recognised
by the world until 1948 after the Second war to entrench Freedom in the world.

Hutton points out that while there has never been mainstream recognition of these key tenets of political philosophy as Haitian cum universal, they have,
however, been colonised by and or subsumed in the western philosophical tradition, reinforcing the epistemology of silence on the one hand, and perpetuating the myth of the West as the cognitive basis for defining, knowing and certifying things on the other hand.

Hutton argues persuasively that the voudou religion - misinterpreted, libeled and denigrated - by western scholars was the magma in which was syncretised the whole "thinking and knowing of the enslaved,the cosmological bases and context of the meanings they created , inherited, recreated, adopted, adapted, weaved and quilted to explain the nature of their being, their existential reality, their hopes and aspirations, and to guide their action to mediate, manipulate, neutralise and overcome the encumbrances imposed on their
lives" by the European 'soul-thieves'.

Hutton concludes by noting that the Haitian elites, in the process of their own identity construction, were purposeful agents in the "silencing and marginalisation of the centrality of Africa and the African Diaspora in the making of the Haitian revolution" so that "the retracing of Haitian freedom,
identity and certitude to French knowing and being became a modus operandi of elite agency in the social, political, cultural and economic development of Haiti".

The Haitian elite are once again riding high, backed by the United States, France, Canada and the United Nations itself in what must surely be the greatest betrayal of human rights in history. Last week Mr Straw apologised to the Bosnian Muslims for the neglect which caused the deaths of 3,000 in
Srebenicza. The forces of evil have already killed more than that in Haiti.

And, last week the United Nations troops in Haiti, under the command of a Brazilian general, massacred uncounted numbers of Haitians in a successful attempt to assassinate the leader of the poor people of the Cite Soleil, a slum
as big as Kingston, and the natural product of American and French interference and exploitation of Haiti over two centuries.

American spokesmen are still as vulgar and stupid as William Jennings Bryan, American Secretary of State who, in 1915, was dumbstruck at the idea of 'Niggers speaking French!' Mr Bush must be scandalised.

Bryan's modern day equivalent, Luigi Einaudi, the (American) Assistant Secretary General of the Organisation of American States retired last week, to the hypocritical encomiums of such as the black Caribbean's spokesperson for the occasion, a lady named Mrs Sonia Johnny, from St Lucia. She said Einaudi was a "facilitator in the ongoing quest for consensus".

She, poor soul, was probably not aware of Mr Einaudi's real claim to fame, his statement in Haiti, a year ago, that the only thing wrong with Haiti was that it was being run by Haitians.

And the OAS and UN speak of the inalienable right to self-determination.

But these days, vulgar racist ignoramuses like Einaudi are thick on the ground. It must have something to do with global warming which allows lower forms of life to flourish.

Eske nou gen sòt de entelektyèl tankou JOHN MAXWELL ann Ayiti?
Nèg lan nan 70s li,li pa janm bay legen.
Admisrasyon misye pou revolisyon ayisyen an se preske yon anbarasman pou nou Ayisyen,sitou yon seri de entelektyèl ayisyen ki vann nanm yo ,nan granmoun yo.
Misye tou tou depi 2003 l ap voye monte sou do elit ayisyen an ke li di alye ak elit ganstè enténasyonal lan pou yo detwi peyi yo!

Mwen rele atik saa leson distwa resan paske depi mwen dekouvri John Maxwell sa fe apeprè 5 an, chak fwa mwen li yon bagay li ekri, se yon kou istwa ke m pran.

Lanpwen okenn entelektyèl ayisyen, pwofesè layik ou relijye ki wè istwa Dayiti avèk zye epi rezonman e entepretasyon misye.

Mwen kwè ke li gade evènman yo avèk detachman, men avèk yon lespri analiz ke nèg pa nou yo pakapab fe.

Istoryen ayisyen komanse avèk yon patipri dapre orijin li ke li asosye avèk pèsonaj istorik la epi li mete yon bann emosyon ki wetire objektivite istorik li.

Pa ekzanp, yo toujou dekri Antoine Simon kom nèg sòt, chef sektyon.
Men listwa defini misye kòm komandan depatman sid pendan 25 an.
Li dirije lame l sòt Okay rive jis lan Potoprins pou l deloje Nò Aleksi.

Eske se travay yon chèf seksyon nèg sòt ta kapab fè?
E mwen pa pale de reyalizasyon ak pwogrè ki fèt sou gouvenman misye.

Gade kijan ayisyen divize ant Tousen e Desalin?

Palan de Antwàn Simon;mwen sonje ke jis nan ane 50s yo ,yo te konn bay blag sou Antwàn Simon,pou montre jan misye te sòt,mwen pa konnen si blag sa yo ekziste toujou.
Ayisyen,sèten ladan yo,se konbyen tan moun lan te fè lekòl ki di si l sòt ou byen si l gen Lespri;e nèg ki ap di se yo ki gen lespri yo,alaverite se yo ki pi sòt,se yo ki pa bay anyen nan gad lan e se yo tou ki responsab peyi an nanpwen li ye an.

Etazini te gen yon prezidan ki te analfabèt jiska laj de 22 zan,se madanm misye ki te montre l li.
Se ANDREW JOHNSON ki te vis prezidan ABRAHAM LINCOLN sou dezyèm manda li an e ki te vin prezidan apre asasinay Lincoln.

Listwaryen ameriken kritike misye paske li te gen senpati pou Sid lan ,paske misye pa t ase sevè kont yo ,sitou Klux Klux Klan te koumanse ap òganize l ,men yo pa janm kritike l paske l te analfabèt.
