Hon Malone appeared as a guest on the August 23, 2022, edition of the Honestly Speaking radio show on ZBVI 780 AM.
“We must look at what is happening throughout the world and especially here in the Virgin Islands. We must know that we must create those things on a social economic front, on a religious front, on an economic front, on a political front, those things that we want for the Virgin Islands,” he said.
Hon added that once the VI does that, it will set the parameters to fight for what it wants, rather than fight against what others want for themselves and to impose on the Virgin Islands.
“If we set the fight for what we ourselves want, then we will know when we will actually attain this,” he added.
Hon Malone said that the VI has allowed 'narratives' to say that Virgin Islanders cannot trust Virgin Islanders and need outsiders to manage the territory.
“The same territory that got us all off the infrastructural development… not because billions of dollars were sent from anywhere, but through our own deliberate judgment we were able to build… it’s the same people others are telling you don’t trust and we have bought into that,” he added.
He added that the VI has already gained all that is needed to be self-sustaining and run the country and as such, must be able to fight for what it wants.
