Default The Communists Repent

On that occasion, I publicly acknowledged “the deficiencies and one-sidedness of the left”, in which I played a prominent part, in demonising Mr Seaga, at the same as I advised against the opposite extreme of deifying this outstanding Jamaican leader. With the further passage of time, the exceptional and extraordinary contribution of Edward Seaga to Jamaica's modern development can no longer be questioned.

For my part, I was raised to revere Mr Seaga’s nemesis, Michael Manley, and therefore, initially absorbed the copious anti-Seaga sentiment that was common currency in those precincts. But then, as life and experience have happened, I’ve had to on occasion stop and say to myself “Hey, wait a minute!”

Mr Seaga led at a time when it wasn’t possible to sit on the fence regarding some very fundamental issues. My admiration for Manley hasn’t ceased, but it has diminished with the recognition that in the late-’70s, he was ably steering the island off the rails. The economic facts are glaring, and facts don’t care about our feelings.
