REBUILD STATE AUTHORITY EVERYWHERE AND FOR ALL
Haiti has turned into disorder and anarchy. For the forward movement, and as quickly as possible, the order must be restarted. Everywhere and in everything! When it is not non-existent, the State is on its knees or dragged into the gutters. The forward movement is part of a process aimed at restoring the authority of the State.
There must be no parcel of the territory outside the control of the police. There can be no police or army or rule over indiscipline, insubordination and esprit de corps. There can be no impunity for informers, thieves, pedophiles, thieves, thugs, gangsters… in short, all those who break the law. There can be no indulgence towards ministers and other state clerks who are indignant at their office. There can be no tolerance for those who attack the republic.
The state authority is a General Customs Administration (AGD) which collects taxes fairly and refuses corruption. It is a justice which is blindfolded and which gives justice to whom justice is due. It is a public administration whose senior executives are recruited on the basis of their skills and who speak with confidence, firmness and competence.
The fledgling Haitian democracy cannot function without a strong State at the service of the citizens, without a regime of minimal authority, that is to say a State which enforces the balance of powers and the implementation of its orientations. Otherwise, the state quickly finds itself trapped in factions which, in turn, impose their diktats on the people. Since the state is the patron of public services, it sets their missions, organization and operation, and ensures their continuity. It also ensures its prestige. State authority is also the protection of each person with respect for their rights, of each family with respect for their responsibilities, of each intermediary body with respect for their skills.
The authority of the State is not measured by the quantity of attributions it holds by the quality of its intervention in the sovereign domain. Authority, for the state, is nothing other than showing the right path, knowing how to explain it to the people and maintaining there, at all costs, the nation in its unity and its harmony.
