The power of intellectuals


“Sowell (Thomas Sowell) points out that intellectuals want others to be forced to submit to their ideas, while remaining blithely oblivious to their negative results.” John Swayze’s comment in Facebook

This is exactly what is happening with a long list of so-called intellectual in what you may consider the socialist and colectivists groups of Guatemala regarding a Constitutional reform proposed by a group of academics in ProReforma.  The proposal aims to correct some of Guatemala’s Constitutional Articles that violate the rights to property, individual freedom, and that seeks to create better checks and balances, and government controls.

Guatemala is today one of the most corrupt  and dangerous countries of the world.  Daily, dozens of men die because of crimes in populated areas of the country and every day it is a lot harder to keep a business open without suffering the consequences of corruption.

I have lived here for 25 years and I can truly say that we are not doing better.  Criminals have taken control of government and corruption is widespread.  ProReforma is the only viable solution proposed by an intellectual elite since the 80s.
