A few ways to get out of this eternal crisis!

Dyear Prison notebooksAntonio Gramsci defines crises ” as a situation in which the old dies and the new cannot appear: during this interregnum we observe the most varied morbid phenomena “.

Din the case of Haitinot, there is some recurrence of factors seizure triggerswhich must challenge politicians on the need and the urgency to lead differently.

Dince the acquisition of the status of Republic in 1804, crisis situations have been repeated, to the point of becoming cyclical, apart from a few major historical periods where joint effort and self-transcendence had made it possible to find solutions. The liberating gesture of the heroes of Vertières is a perfect illustration of this. Since then, the ruling class has distinguished itself by this detestable spirit of division, with all the violence and destruction that entails.

However, this tendency to repetition always raises fears, even in a period of apparent stability, of the explosion of a crisis in the making from which the country is never immune. The one we are currently experiencing is only the continuation of a long series of upheavals which, each time, plunge the country into ever more serious desolation.

These seizures cycles are the result of deep malaise whose causes are to be found in nature even of a state in full decline, “bankrupt”, to the point of not being able to offer even basic social services to its population.

The fight led by the democratic movement for the overthrow of the dictatorial regime of the Duvaliers has not yet given birth to real change. for the masses. Basé only on expression demands, this current has never organized itself into a movement carrying transmutation. Hence theincessant fragmentation of parties or groups seen in the ranks of the “democratic sector”. During 2015 electionswe saw breaking more than 50 presidential candidates.

HASfter the departure of the Duvaliers in 1986, and to this day, there is constant turbulence at thewithin this “democratic sector”, against a backdrop of internal struggles, preventing the elaboration and proposal of a political vision with substantial content. This plethora of political formations and various small groups does not necessarily translate a democratic vitality: it is rather a variegated mixture of disparate elements uttering, in a cacophony worthy of a badly tuned orchestra, hollow ”speeches”, little compelling and outdated.

In some advanced countries, the question of parties and platforms plethoric does not arise since solved at the base: the political parties whose agendas are similar or similar make alliances. The separation of tendencies is most often done internally by carrying out primaries in order to determine the candidate most likely to carry the message.e – the “vision” – to the final triumph.

Which is difficult to achieve, even complicated, in the Haitian case since the logic is not to make a “vision” triumph, but to satisfy a desire to power because of the countless privileges it confers. Others have only a partial view of the reality of power, which they see as a means to personal success.

Meet the effective needs of communities

This is why their speeches remain declarations paved with good intentions, since the conceptual and implementation means are never planned. Lhe debates that have been going on for a very long time on the political scene are superficial and devoid of quality. It is no exaggeration to say that their deficiency is at the root of these repetitive crises :ithere is no consensual “vision” proposed around the identification of growth vectors likely to encourage the creation of wealth necessary for the advancement of the country. The proposals underlying these “declarations” have not been studied prerequisites to be the result of a proven, differential diagnosis taking into account real needs. In other words, ethey don’t respond to actual needs of the communities. The abstract framework in which the discussions are inserted makes it impossible to put in place effective strategies. For example, an education plan in favor of a category of children must do the subject of studies as to the areas that will be taken into account, the corresponding infrastructures to be put in place, the resources that will beohnt involved, continuity and follow-up, as well as the origin of the allocated budget.

We often see that after the seizure of power, subsequent governmental achievements are instrumentalized, deliberately manipulated for dazzle. Therefore, the erection of “works-coup de brilliance” does not allowyou not to face the real issues of Requirement public and social demands. Thus, the answers provided will always and necessarily be political replies against a backdrop of publicized shows, insipid sprinklings, in order to hide incompetence, lack of vision and carelessness. the government headed by Laurent Lamothe is a typical example with its “gouvènman lakay” highly publicized.

In view of the progress made in neighboring countries, it is necessary torefine our choices and fine-tune our approaches and our planned actions. In this sense, political parties aspiring to rule or make proposals as a possible future opposition, are obliged to propose a “political vision” within which is inserted a concrete content, that is to say a set of public policies with plans implementation of a view of development. To this end, they must pacifyr the country and create an enabling environment to attract foreign direct investment, which is one of the factors of economic growth. Because poverty increasing at the rate of the lack of capital is dangerous for social peace.

Establish a consensual agenda

In this respect, it is necessary to establish, within the framework of a consensual agenda, solidarity mechanisms encompassing a plurality of views for the construction of a collective living space. This is only possible through a refoundation of the State and its various components through a systemic formatting within a ”vision”.

The National Dialogue that we iron endlessly in the media should have had this initiative as a basis. Instead of an agreement considered only for power sharing – because when we n / A nothing else to offer, we will fall directly into the infernal cycle of the crisis -, political leaders will haveint had to have as its purpose the creation of wealths through the consistent use of growth channels. Iit is not necessary to be always on the same wavelength, but to get along at least on a modus operandi. Lcritical debate will be useful that when he wears on what has been previously heard and arrested for execution. Thus, faced with the finding of non-execution, each person concerned will be able to demand accountability from those responsible.

In terms of components, replenishing the content of a political vision implies, first of all, a reorganization of the base of national production in its entirety, while identifying the vectors of growth. In second place, there needs to be an improvement in basic services, such as health, education, water and sanitation, infrastructure, etc. And finally a revaluation of the environment which constitutes a risk factor for the national economy with the losses caused by natural disasters.

A necessary restructuring of the state and parties

the current speech doesn’t really hold account of local authorities. Gold without theyit is as useless to speak of development as it is to discuss “the sex of angels”. This is what we will call integrated regional development through the mobilization local resources and skills and the establishment of essential basic structures and services decentralized. The deconcentration of economic activities is not only to be desired, it is rather to be strongly encouraged in the regions in order to manage to generate local taxes, without the need to constantly refer to theEcentral state for the construction of works of community utility.

Currently our medium cities and small have become monstrous, real ones necks strangulation controlled by armed gangs.

Doing politics differently and differently is linked to the formulation of a pact of governability between social forces this perspective should be the basis of any good transition for the construction of the national agenda without dependency international.

Hence the need for a real way out of the crisis.

Haiti cannot continue to formalize the uncertainty at through elections. We must certainly go through this box, but we must first restructure the State and political parties through coercive legislation that allows not only to set guidelines, but also to act on violations of regulations. It is from there that we will achieve a fortified democratic space in which the actors will present programs that coincide with the structured plans within the framework of a long-term vision. In other words: we must put the cart before the horse.
