#2427: Duvalier: Gill comments

From: Mark Gill <markgill@midwest.net>

i just cant think of anyway that F.Duvalier or son empowered the
masses.....they were anti-grass roots, anti-union and anti- any type of
organization that might challange their position...which of course, is
nothing unusual for a dictatorship....

he did beef of the power of the section chiefs, but this was for the
purpose of keeping order, making them big tonton's, as he did many of
the hougan, and for the same purpose....

but, i just cant recall that he set about to "empower" anyone other than
himself and his little "click", which was always changing, usually due
to uh, "disappearance".....
