This a follow-up to my recent post on Hurricane Dorian.
It is not my point to nag on the Bahamas, I country I have never visited.
Nevertheless, I believe the Hurricane Dorian disaster is representative for many countries and cultures, whatever hazards they are exposed to.

Domestic bloggers and writers have expressed a deep concern about the dominant anti-intellectualism in the country.
Apparently, 50 % of the students leave high-school without a diploma. 
We prize ignorance. To think critically, “speak smart”, or even dress smartly, is offensive to our very understanding of what it means to be Bahamian.
