Dear Editor,

It would be an understatement to say that the behavior of politicians in Belize is scandalous. Embezzlement, all manner of misuse of funds, perfidy, corruption on every level and across party lines—the list is long and tawdry—and criminal.

It gives me hope for Belize as I read your increasingly hard-hitting editorials, which illustrate to me that patience for wrong-doing is wearing thin and that the incapacity of political parties to govern—despite all their benefits—is no longer something the Belizean people have to accept.

When I’m asked, “What can I do about it?” my reply goes right to the heart of what you’re doing as the editor of a major newspaper. By the very act of speaking with candor, with honesty and courage, whether among our friends or from the pages in a newspaper, we contribute to the universal consciousness from which all change comes.

I like what Abraham Lincoln once said : “When I do a good thing, it makes me feel good. When I do a bad thing, it makes me feel bad. That’s my religion.”

All the best & big respect,
Russell Czarnecki,
Stann Creek
