Pinpointing the Points is a nine-chapter book that presents the author's comments and analyses on such topics as free speech, violence, elections, corruption, post-1990 education, war crimes trial, the ugliness of war and other pertinent Liberian issues. Besides, it contains the author's proposals aimed at making the bad good and the good better.
Who are the Liberians that should participate in the Liberian discourse? How should they participate? What are their duties and obligations. Chapter One of the book will help you get the answers to these questions and many more.
What about the establishment of a war crimes tribunal in Liberia? Is it in Liberia’s interest? Which group is doing the right thing, those calling for the prosecution of suspected war criminals, or those opposing it? Well, you wouldn’t be disappointed if you read Chapter Five.
Who are those that Liberians should vote for in any election season? What factors should be considered, and why? Well, you wouldn’t be disappointed if you read Chapter Six.
Liberia experienced its darkest days between 1989 and 2003. Liberians landed on rocky grounds, causing them injuries that they are yet to recover from. What was the single most factor that gave rise to that period? Chapter Two unravels it interestingly.
Liberians, like the Romans who hailed Caesar when he appeared and also hailed Brutus when he showed up, joyously embraced Doe in 1980, and Quiwonkpa in 1985. They also gladly welcomed Taylor in 1990. Why did the Liberian people behave in such a manner? That’s the purpose of Chapter Three.
