The BTB Branding: How to Be Eurocentric & Why Not in Belize

It’s been two years since the Belize Tourism Board (BTB) launched the “Discover How to Be” promotional tourism video (“Discover How to Be”, 2013). However, it was until this week that I encountered the video on Facebook and I must express a grave dismay with the production. I would like to call attention to the segment (time slot: 1:11-1:20) which displays the text “be primitive” and “be peculiar” with our Maya archeological sites in the background. The representation of our indigenous heritage and people as “primitive” and “peculiar” is the perpetuation of Eurocentric discourse which facilitated the enslavement and exploitation […]


Factory Farming – It's coming to Belize 1

I watched Food Inc when it was released and it is important to watch. I have asked media houses in Belize to air this so people understand what is happening around them. I know you have heard the terms GMO or Organic Food; you may have even heard of Factory Farming. If you have not heard about these you may be asking what these are about. GMO – Genetically Modified Organism GMOs (or “genetically modified organisms”) are living organisms whose genetic material has been artificially manipulated in a laboratory through genetic engineering, or GE. This relatively new science creates unstable […]


The War On Democracy

A few years ago George W. Bush stated “America will not impose our own style of living on the unwilling. Out goal instead is to help others to find their own voice, attain their own freedom, and make their own way”. Nevertheless the United States’ actions in Latin America are proof that exactly the opposite is true. This film by John Pilger is about the struggle of people to free themselves from a modern form of slavery. It describes how those with next to nothing show extraordinary strength and courage defending the most basic of human rights in a war […]


Occasional Discourse on the Nigger Question (Historical Documentary) 1

Thomas Carlyle 1853 Introduction This documentary by the BBC looks at Scientific Racism, invented during the 19th century, an ideology that drew on now discredited practices such as phrenology and provided an ideological justification for racism and slavery. These theories ultimately led to eugenics and racial policies of the “master” race. Herbert Spencer, the father of Social Darwinism as an ethical theory, was thinking in terms of elitist, “might makes right” sorts of views long before Darwin published his theory. However, Spencer quickly adapted Darwinian ideas to his own ethical theories. The concept of adaptation allowed him to claim that […]


The War on Kids

The War on Kids is a 2009 documentary film about the American school system. The film takes a look at public school education in America and concludes that schools are not only failing to educate, but are increasingly authoritarian institutions more akin to prisons that are eroding the foundations of American democracy. Students are robbed of basic freedoms primarily due to irrational fears; they are searched, arbitrarily punished and force-fed dangerous pharmaceutical drugs. The educational mission of the public school system has been reduced from one of learning and preparation for adult citizenship to one of control and containment. Filmmaker […]


Stanford Prison Experiment 1971

Famed psychologist Philip Zimbardo led this experiment to examine that behavior of individuals when placed into roles of either prisoner or guard and the norms these individuals were expected to display. Prisoners were put into a situation purposely meant to cause disorientation, degradation, and depersonalization. Guards were not given any specific directions or training on how to carry out their roles. Though at first, the students were unsure of how to carry out their roles, eventually they had no problem. The second day of the experiment invited a rebellion by the prisoners, which brought a severe response from the guards. […]

The History Channel Documentary The battle of Thermopylae was the first between the Persians and Greeks during the Persian invasion of 480-479 BC.

Here the Greek force now waited, made […]

Ever wonder what British Columbia’s most profitable industries are? Logging? Fishing? Tourism? Ever think to include marijuana? If you haven’t, think again. No longer a hobby for the stereotypical hippie culture of the ’60s, BC’s illegal marijuana trade industry has evolved into a seemingly unstoppable business giant, dubbed by those involved as ‘The Union’. Commanding upwards of $7 billion Canadian annually, The Union’s roots stretch far and wide, directly and indirectly affecting all areas of our society.
