Election result Curacao 12.3.0

The days after the election. I had been expecting that we would vote 2.0 from emotion. The ideologies are 2.0 and 1.0 and severely outdated. This while Curacao 2.0 is in pieces. We want to repeat the revolution 1.0 of 1795 and the decolonization 1.0 from 1948 to 1954. But this time we must win the battle for Tula and we must not have an autonomous country but an independent country.

In the meantime, the world is not standing still. The ICT developed further and thereby the globalization continues. But we do not have time for it because we still have to make some corrections in our history. We have no vision on Curacao 3.0 and what is also important, politics has no idea how to fix the financial problem. There is no ICT plan for the island. There is no vision on knowledge economy and no vision on appropriate education. We are engaged in setting straight the history and changing street names. This is the result of leadership which keeps our Curacao 2.0 inhabitants small and keeps them dealing with the past.

The conclusion is that only a small miracle can save us from the drift of Curacao 2.0 to 1.0 to 0.0. The challenge is still to find a way to upgrade systems in Curacao to 3.0 and so to keep pace with the world.
