    Documentary exploring the Idea of Haitian tourism.


    Seem to be mainly targeting Haitians from the diaspora.
    @BlessedbyHorus : I heard that Haitians put in work when it comes to remittances? Is it true.

    VERY TRUE. But Haiti is gonna need ALOOOOOOOOOOOOOT more than tourism to save it. Tbh I'm SLOWLY repeat SLOWLY warming up to your monarchy idea but pure monarchy but something similar to it. Fact is in the real world not all societies are meant for democracy.

    Would you be open to the idea of a latter day Henri Christophe (sans the character flaws)?

    Not LITERALLY a monarchy like Henri. However, Haitians are a VERY authoritarian ppl. They want stability and order. Its always been like that and we even see it in America. I know this is gonna sound controversial but Haiti needs an authoritarian leader like Fidel Castro, Vladimir Putin, or even Gaddafi for that matter to keep things in order and to keep the USA/Clintons/Canadians at bay and to keep the rich boule Haitians(who are eating away the country since the 70s) at bay. Like I said this may sound very controversial but its what Haiti needs. Haitians don't mind authoritarians as long as he/she keeps everything stable and attempts to build.

    However, if Haiti does have a stable monarchy I wouldn't mind it. But fact is democracy has been botched in Haiti. Haiti is not the Bahamas, Barbados or Trinidad. It is what it is.

    Sak Pase.
    Long viv Anperè Faustin ak Jean-Jacque. Long ap viv wa Henri.

    My position isn't Absolute Monarchy but (Semi) Constitutional Monarchy. Remember most existing monarchies in the world today are constitutional not absolute. And they are by far some of the most stable countries on the planet.

    I understand your position. However, when it comes to the bolded part forget them.

    I suggest a well known Haitian to become King as a semi-constitutional monarch (A monarch that reigns but doesn't rule. The Monarchy would have more power than say 'The Queen'. Think Jordanian, Bhutanese or Omani monarchies.)
    I suggest Wyclef Jean. LOL

    I feel that if Brazil was a Spanish speaking nation, they would be more influential in the region, especially in the music scene because they have a lot of great genres and the music scene would eventually be taken over by them

    I can already see Puerto Ricans appropriating their genres like they have done with Dominican/Cuban/Panamanian genres
    Lol! C'mon Dude. It was just a lighthearted comment. As you point out, Brazilians aren't Hispanic because they don't speak Spanish and they identify historically with Portugal instead of Spain. Trying to argue that Brazilian culture has no influence though is kinda crazy to me. (i.e. wrong.) No big deal. There is more than enough room for Brazilian culture and Hispanic Latino culture. I love the fact that they are both distinct, separate and have different things to offer.

    When was the last time Haiti was ruled by someone who wasn't either on the take for themselves or under the thumb of the "rich boule Haitians." Authoritarians are always self-interested narcissists who claim to "act for the people" while lining their pockets and the pockets of relatives and friends...using foreign aid cash (i.e. U.S./Clinton/Canadian money and others to do it). If they aren't elitists when they start they will be by the time they eliminate their political opponents using foreign resources.

    I agree that nations tend to line up with the historical ruling system of their area but good rulers are so hard to find these days. So what do yo think of Francois Nicolas "Grand-Baby Doc" Duvalier putting himself up as the next President for Life? He's a Duvalier and kinda like royalty to some Haitians.

    Both Mexico and Brazil have grown to be a forces to be reckoned with. Both countries are part of the the 'Trillion Dollar Club'.
    Brazil is a nominal top 10 economy (as of March 2019)
    Mexico is a top nominal 15 economy (as of March 2019)

    Brazil is making a big impact with BRICS, while many economists are keeping a close eye on the MINT countries.

    The only problem I have with both countries is the corruption and it shows in terms of GDP per capita:
    Mexico
    Brazil

    With the amount of people and resources both countries have the peoples should be balling majorly.

    Shame they don't have monarchies. They were better with them.
    larga vida al emperador.
    Vida longa ao.
