While I agree that poverty is worse, and insecurity for the people suffered
in the not too distant past (I understand that criminals are not so bold
these days!), I do not agree that Aristide is the reason, nor do I agree that
we can be certain that he has changed his mission from "From misery to
poverty with dignity" to filling his pockets with filthy lucre. There have
been more roadblocks to progress in Aristide's time than ever before. There
are people inside and outside of Haiti who do not want this change. They do
not feel thatthe common people have what it takes to make decisions for
themselves and Haiti. They feel that only the select few (themselves) should
be able to have this democratic power. And the terror they feel at the idea
of not having destitute people to work for nothing in their factories, and
their homes makes them dangerous. The smear campaign they are waging now is
awesome. If one doesn't have a balanced view, one couldn't be blamed for
believing all the lies and half truths printed in the media. Some people on
this list believe it. I wonder if we will be allowed to ever know the truth.
