Folks, listen to Head of State Samuel Kanyon Doe’s definitions of Communism: “In Communist country the women cannot get marry and the men cannot get marry. Any man can take any woman and do anything he wants to do with her”. S. Kanyon Doe said vociferously. Do you want Communism? the Chiefs thundered “No”!. S. Kanyon Doe said in Communist country if you make your farm and harvest 50 bags of rice, the communist government will seize 49 bags and give you 1 bag. Finally, S. Kanyon Doe told the chiefs that “in a communism country nobody has a house. People can sleep in any house they see”. He asked do you want Communism? Finally, the chiefs replied “No”. Op-ed 

It was the True Whig Party that made Samuel Doe, not the Progressive Class

    The Editor, Can there ever be a balanced approach to Liberian history? There are some who will like us to believe that everything was good until 1980. Folks on the right blame all the problems in Liberia on the progressives class and that to me is totally wrong because the coup that took place was led by the People Redemption council and the Liberian army. You can’t blame the progressives for the failure of the so-called revolution led by Samuel Doe because they did not actually take overpower…

Interestingly, the 2017 elections have come and gone and many are clinging on to the CDC victory as if it’s the triumph of their lives. Some of these very ones, like myself have always considered George Oppong Weah, grossly incompetent and unfit for the office of the President of the Republic of Liberia. But some of these people are somersaulting suddenly and are singing praises to Weah. You will not believe who they’re scapegoats, THE PROGRESSIVES! Op-ed 

The Progressives Class: the people of Liberia shall identify their true leaders.

    “But there’s news for all of you people out there who’ve lied and deceived the gullible majority that history will not be unkind to the progressives. There comes a time and soon, when the people of Liberia shall identify their true leaders.”   Interestingly, the 2017 elections have come and gone and many are clinging on to the CDC victory as if it’s the triumph of their lives. Some of these very ones, like myself have always considered George Oppong Weah, grossly incompetent and unfit for the office…

Finally Mr. Costa, as a young man, you have the potential to be a good journalist. You are articulate on radio and you do a little bit of research over our average journalist. I think it’s about time that you choose between being a credible journalist or a rented mercenary. Above all do not forget that the freedom, which you now enjoy to even cuss people on radio did not fall from the sky. It came through bitter sacrifices by committed individuals dedicated to the cause of freedom, justice and equality in Liberia. Thank you.This Open Letter was first published in the Liberian Observer December 19, 2018 Op-ed 

Open Letter to Henry Costa

    By James M. Fromayan Mr. Costa, On Wednesday morning, November 14, 2018, I was driving towards central Monrovia from Paynesville.  At some point, I began monitoring your show (The Costa Talk Show) on a local radio station. You accused people you referred to as “progressives” for a host of ills, including “fomenting of troubles” in the country.   Progressives in this context refer to Liberians, who were and have been in the vanguard of the struggle for social justice and equality. Interestingly, but not surprisingly, you failed to make…

Fellow cpmrades and the progressive class, "We can't be taking pleasure from the poverty-stricken condition and abject misery of our people then we say the struggle must end. We can't be in haste to get rich and pretend that the struggle is coming to an end. On our side, the struggle is just beginning" —Prof. Alaric Tokpa. Op-ed 

Liberia’s Redemption & Struggle: Progressives Are Not To Blame

  The Editor,   With all due respect, some Liberians have miserably failed to come to the realization that “every generation out of relative obscurity must discover its mission, fulfill it betray or it” as propounded by the black existentialist and revolutionary – Frantz Fanon. The progressive forces in the 70s, 80s, and 90s and today in Liberia have struggled within the context of their time just as many other revolutionaries. These men struggled with all the fibber of their bodies to redeem the people from the shackles and yoke…
