My heart goes out to Wyclef Jean.
Really, it does.
To have come that close to realising his dream of running Haiti, before being defeated by colonialist counter-revolutionary agents, is truly heart breaking. And on the grounds that he is not Haitian is even more upsetting.
Since when should being a citizen of a country determine one’s ability to run the place? Trust me, that is the last thing one should be concerend about. Just ask Samuel Doe; sooner or later one ends up with ones tackle in ones mouth.
Not a pretty picture.
So, in order to assist Mr Jean, I have sent him, via express mail, a subtle enquiry as to whether he would need help in realising that dream. As sometimes is the case, in order to realise our dreams, we do need to exercise just that little bit of force to get others to see it our way.
I like to call it “influential day dreaming”. Or to quote Dom Cobb: “Inception”.
Except its just that tad more direct.
