National Solidarity (???)

Beitragvon Klaus » Sa Okt 11, 2003 0:14

I should perhaps need to highlight that in my opinion are three power bases in MRU. First, the economic power that is in the hands of the White; second, the political power that is in the hands of the Vaish-Hindu; and third, the media power that is in the hands of the Euro-Creole.

When power in a country is divided along ethnic grounds, it is very difficult to build national solidarity. People who pay lipservice to national unity are only fooling themselves. Such a balance of power, far from being a liability might well be an insurance against monopoly and abuse of power. In time they will be spread, shared and layered. They may turn out to be the base of a well-anchored society.

The over-arching question is: "Are the social barriers coming down?" Personally, I think they are.

Klaus sorry, but not agree with this.
power in hands of the white people....not anymore.

if you would say > they prefere to work together, then yes.
but is for all the same.

how a mauritian said to me once:
"we are all Diplomats"

Hi Stefan,

maybe you are right, but it is also a fact that, for example, a significant number of hotels are operated by sugar-estate-barons-turned-hoteliers (Franco-MRU, the “whites”) to take advantage of opportunities of the tourist market and from which they have amassed untold wealth. It appears however that the wealth is not distributed fairly to all people. The Franco-MRU are raking in billions in profit leaving those at the lower level of society with crumbs. It would not be an exaggeration to say that the pay scale rises the whiter you are.

Regards
Klaus

hi klaus > i think, things getting more mixed.
today i can even see franco- mau. who have not a lot of money.
i think, as from a colonie, mauritius dit a nice way to exchange power and today, everybody have a chance to do something here.
it does not matter what color he is.
sure some people are more rich then others, but it's not the same as everywhere?
best regards
stefan
