“The true dialogue presupposes the recognition of the other both in his identity and in his otherness.
Friday, March 1, 2019 ((rezonodwes.com)) – Since July 6, 7, those who did not know Reginald Boulos have of course heard of him. He gave interviews on almost every radio and television station for the capital. Reginald Boulos is a doctor who has decided to leave his blouse to go into business twenty years ago.
Today, he can say that life is going very well for him. Reginald Boulos believes in the multiplicity of sources of income. That's why he's a car dealership, he has a supermarket chain, he has a hotel and other activities through his group, the Boulos Group. When I hear the name of Reginald Boulos, I immediately think of his Arabs who suck the blood of the people. That's the perception I've always had.
In 2014, former Senator Gabriel Fortune accused Boulos of being the one who was not in favor of accountability. Boulos' name is a strong reason, especially in the Afebril / Valodon case where dozens of children died due to negligence on the part of the Pharval laboratory. Reginald Boulos has always said he has nothing to do with this file. Who is Reginald Boulos? It is a brilliant element that made his classical studies at my alma mater, the Petit Séminaire St Martial College and who finished his studies in second class. Reginald Boulos is a physician with a master's degree in public health. He is a businessman today.
Since the end of July, Dr. Boulos loudly proclaims that he wants a change of system. Some wonder if the doctor is crazy; other skeptics are waiting for much more concrete actions on his part, and finally the most optimistic believe that we must dialogue with him, perhaps something good and good can come out of these discussions. I believe that “there is time for pedagogy, consultation, dialogue, and at some point there is time for decision. Dr. Reginald Boulos is preaching, he is consulting, he wants to interact with the most influential actors, professionals, young people, intellectuals and businessmen like him. After all these steps, the time of the decision must arrive. Will Dr. Boulos be a presidential candidate in 2021 or 2026? Or Will he get into politics to try to change the way we do politics in Haiti? Reginald Boulos advocates the third way, which means a path that leads to stability, progress and sustainable endogenous development, a more just and less unequal society. We take Dr. Boulos at his word.
“Putting social dialogue in place requires effort and maintenance in demand even more. “Reginald Boulos whether we want to be part of those who have implemented the system” peze souse “and who leads the dance in the field. He may not accept it, but that is what the majority of Haitians think, including me. I like to give the benefit of the doubt, and I believe that even the repentant villain deserves another chance. I do not insinuate that Reginald Boulos is a bad guy. But, he is above all a businessman who seeks to make the maximum profit possible. According to several Reginald Boulos employees including my mentor Frantz Rimpel, he is a type of property that treats his employees with respect. In other words, he is a good boss. Reginald Boulos began his professional career as a doctor at Cité Soleil where he set up Sainte Catherine Hospital, which was mainly a maternal-infantile hospital. Dr. Boulos spent more than 12 years in Cité Soleil. He is very popular in Cité Soleil and he is very popular there. Dr. Boulos said he has a school in Cité Soleil that receives 2,000 students. And there is another one under construction. He wants to give back some of what this country has given him. According to my investigations, Dr. Boulos has always supported the fight for democracy by supporting activists. Former Prime Minister Evans Paul can attest to this. Reginald Boulos is a man of good business, it is said
At the time of writing, I see Reginald Boulos as a modern politician who has a great capacity for clairvoyance and who can see the hurricane in the distance who comes and who seeks to ensure his “safety” or save his skin. I do not say that Dr. Boulos is not sincere, but like any politician, he tries to pull himself together. Can we be proud Reginald Boulos who wants to be the apostle of democracy, the defender of the masses? From 2000 to 2004, Andy Apaid and his band of group 184 had asphyxiated the country. Andy Apaid presented the Social Contract which was a well-built document. After expelling Aristide from power, Apaid rolled everyone in flour. Some fighters have had visas, some have even become visa sellers. Others have had lucrative consulting contracts and the most knowledgeable are on payroll. By the way, this week Andy Apaid has resurfaced. It was he who facilitated a meeting on a neutral ground between Jovenel Moise and Jean Henry Céant to empty their litigation. I would like to ask Dr. Boulos what connection he has with the famous Andy Apaid? Is this part of the third way movement that he advocates? After what Apaid has done to this people, preventing us from celebrating our bicentenary of independence, I do not believe that the Haitian people can be the object of another scam of the bourgeoisie. We know how the Social Contract case ended under Latortue: Customs Franchise and Tax and Tax Exemption for Fifteen Years for the Group 184 Business Class Leaders.
“Dialogue is important between people, it is enough that the subject is accepted between the two protagonists. The adage states that only God and idiots do not change. Mr. Boulos must recognize that his peers have done a lot of damage to this country and he must assume it. We are not going to reject Reginald Boulos and his ideas with the back of his hand, but today we need to define the topic of discussion: what does Reginald Boulos and the progressives in the business class want? We have a big void on the political spectrum that needs to be filled. The current political leaders are the representatives of the business class. Not only does she finance the politicians' campaign, but she instrumentalises them. This is why the affairs of the people do not interest these gentlemen and ladies who make politics in Haiti. They are all on payroll and Dr. Boulos, the political arm of the business class knows a lot. As we speak, can we count on Reginald Boulos? Is he sincere? Youth is the standard bearer of any country. The haitian youth who are dying need hope; she wants to see the end of the tunnel. I have always advised businessmen with whom I have good relationships to make it easier for young entrepreneurs to access loans. Why not set up a guarantee fund and encourage banks to provide loans to young people. In a public-private partnership, BRH could be encouraged to lower the guarantee fund rate required for commercial banks so that they could find money to encourage youth entrepreneurship. Dr. Reginald Boulos would be successful in leading such an initiative with progressive businessmen.
In this dialogue that Dr. Boulos wants to begin with the forces of the nation, he must recognize, despite the differences, we must to be on an equal footing; especially no discrimination. Businessmen in this country believe that all elements of the middle class have a price. They are not wrong because most elements of the middle class are bullies and abolotchos who sell to the highest bidders. I have been Doctor Boulos very closely since the riots of 6th, 7th of July. According to the reports, Dr. Boulos has big enemies within the business class. It is not without reason that he was one of the main victims of the events of July 6, 7. It's been over a year since Dr. Boulos met people to try to rally them around an umbrella. I believe for some businessmen and politicians, the speech of Dr. Boulos is dangerous to the extent that he speaks of the emancipation of the masses and better living conditions for them. Reginald Boulos has already proven that he has compassion for the poor by choosing to start his career at Cité Soleil. He could have been a great doctor in the United States or set up a hospital in Port-au-Prince and other cities in the country and make his butter. I give him the benefit of the doubt as long as he stands out for all those business-class leeches that will never change.
I've always said it and I say it again, the poor do not do it. revolution. Middle-class elements can play a significant role in a revolution, but they are rarely the main leaders. In this moment, we must empty our litigation. That is why we of the youth, we must be on our guard, but we must suddenly embrace the olive branch launched by Dr. Reginald Boulos. We must exchange even with the devil. Talking with politicians in Haiti is a waste of time because they are not masters of their thoughts. They are remote controlled by wealthy businessmen. If we have to talk today, we have to do it with the “mete afè” and the “met peyi” like Reginald Boulos. Reginald Boulos has enough to live, but he is far from being a wealthy. I wonder if Dr. Boulos really wants to make a difference on the political scene and allow this country to start on a new basis. Dr. Boulos, we must not neglect the diaspora and I take you at your word, because on several occasions you made a plea for the diaspora to be integrated into the affairs of the country. I believe that we must engage all credible political parties in this “brase lide” that you initiated. There are some political parties that know they will never be in power unless there is a transition, which is not plausible. So today what we need is the gathering of the self-righteous and all conscientious professionals within a great movement.
The business class has two choices: 1) to engage in the way of dialogue with all the forces of national life including the diaspora to rule on a new system 2) wait for the hurricane that will come for sure if it is not an earthquake and die under the rubble. Reginald Boulos is a fine wizard, he chose the first option and I think with his great ability to convince that he has to make many more followers among his brothers. We want to see the “peyi meters” who use the elements of the middle class to put their hands on the public administration and enjoy the privileges at work. Even the President of the Republic is a simple employee. This must stop. When Dr. Boulos makes the commitment to initiate a dialogue, we want to know if he goes alone or if he has the support of a segment of the bourgeoisie. Reginald Boulos will have to show his muscles. He is only two years old to show his good will if he wants to be a candidate in 2021 or if he wants to support a capable and honest professional. There are some unclear points, but we will have time to discuss them with the concerned person. We just want to tell Reginalds Boulos that he is moving in the right direction, despite the fact that the people are suspicious, knowing the bad reputation of the businessmen and having been scalded by the gang in Apaid.
In life, we must take risks. Boulos and others are already in power via elements of the middle class. If today, they decide to be more present, to get directly involved, we must welcome them with open arms. This country will not change if we do not do another Camp Gerard. Today, it is the blacks and the Arabs / Jews who must seal this pact. Pa gen griyen dan nan bagay yo. All jan n ap mouri. The country is dying, we need many initiatives that can give hope to young people. Some will say that I'm lobbying for Reginald Boulos; I take what I write today. I believe we can not get out of this mess without the participation of business people who want change. If they understand the economy and politics, they will understand that the higher the employment rate, the more money they will earn. In every country in the world, it is the business class that determines the political vision. In Haiti, businessmen are pretty mean and carefree. They choose the model “peze souse” for Haiti and the economy of rent that can not give anything substantial. We need confidence, we must integrate the diaspora that has the means to build this country. We need a handful of businessmen ready to throw themselves into the scales. The dechoukaj the shore, bandi yo a jwenn his yo merite for ensousyans yo.
The country will go nowhere with the division. There are men who will never agree to dialogue with anyone for the happiness of the country. They are rich and the more the people suffer, the more comfortable they are. It is these individuals that we must fight. Mr. Reginald Boulos, you have to prove that you are in good faith. Your actions follow you and follow you. From today, you have to stand out from the perception and the image of predator. I can give you the benefit of the doubt, but what about this hungry people who are flouted by those who are like him and who knows that the black commanders are in the pay of Syro-Lebanese / Jews. We must discuss. N e chita tande n ap eklesi sak paret twoub e ne ap jwenn chimen nou nou not nan malpwptte nou ye la. I say to you good luck in your step which is noble in my humble opinion. There is a crisis of leadership, the people are waiting for a rallying party. As a Christian believer, I take as an example Saul of Tarsus who became Paul who wrote much of the New Testament. He had a change of heart and God used him to bring the good news to all nations. Today, you can be a Paul if you will, but you will have to work to earn it and be sincere. You can be an ally, but you still have some work to do. We must stand out from all the movements that have failed this country from 1957 to today. The time of renewal is at our door. That we can join our torches in bundles to project a new glow on the screen of Haiti. Good continuity in your approach Dr. Boulos
