Alex Georges: Bringing Light and Hope to Haiti

BrandHaiti: Jou-a Rive Pou Nou Chanje

Recently, BrandHaiti met with entrepreneur Alex Georges, one of the founders of a solar-energy startup called ENERSA. Mr. Georges, who enthusiastically drove and picked us up to conduct the interview at his office in Petion-Ville, was very excited to see that young people were so passionate about his native country, and was eager to discuss his business ventures. Before the earthquake, ENERSA was the fastest growing solar company in Haiti, with installments in over 50 municipalities in 10 departments. Even after the earthquake destroyed much of their new factory, recently built in 2007, Mr. Georges and his team managed to secure outside grants to rebuild, and are once again prospering. In addition to their domestic work, they are engaged in discussions with Senegal foster more jobs and expand their business to a new frontier.

Along with his desire for his company’s success, it is immediately clear when speaking with him…

42 Principles of Maat 2000 years before Ten Commandments

righteousness here and now, and into the afterlife.

True Strange Library

The Ten Commandments, eight of them at least, were taken from the Egyptian Principles of Ma’at written at least 2000 years earlier.

180px-maatsvg.png Written at least 2,000 years before the Ten Commandments of Moses, the 42 Principles of Ma’at are one of Africa’s, and the world’s, oldest sources of moral and spiritual instruction. Ma’at, the Ancient Egyptian divine Principle of Truth, Justice, and Righteousness, is the foundation of natural and social order and unity. Ancient Africans developed a humane system of thought and conduct which has been recorded in volumes of African wisdom literature, such as, these declarations from the Book of Coming Forth By Day (the so-called Book of the Dead), The Teachings of Ptah-Hotep, the writings of Ani, Amenemope, Merikare, and others.

One aspect of ancient Egyptian funerary literature which often is mistaken for a codified ethic of Ma’at is Chapter 125 of the Book of the Dead

I am and will be always dazzled by Barack Obama, how he accentuated the debate and created platforms for a new national vision–and backlash. Presidents, their terms, aren’t discrete packets, isolated from all before or determined by pass/fail assessments; Presidents are a part of the organic development of America, markers and holders of of our national character and power.

Many feel Obama should have achieved single payer health care, but such a fight might have turned into the same repetitiveness as the endless effort to end Obamacare. Frankly, was the nation, “awakening from its stony sleep” (Yeats) ready for a black President, the recession, and single payer–against powerful, media-supported Republican attacks? For the national center to hold as radical change–liberal or conservative–advances, the states must support the mutual effort: look at how many states rejected…
