It is beyond me, how you can, from a discussion on Dessalinism, arrive at this kind of statement: "Haiti can not, and shouldn’t isolate itself from the rest of the world".
Was it not Dessalines, the father of our nation, who on January 14, 1804, offered 40 piastres to any U.S. ships carrying African slaves to buy the freedom of each of as many human beings as he could?
Dessalines (respè pou li pou tout tan gen tan) was not an isolationist. On the contrary, he was a great man whose vision of humanity was not only larger than the island of Haiti but it was far in advance of that of most of the world leaders of his time.
Also, the neighbours of Haiti, needed no help from us to decide on the isolation of the "Black Republic". No more than, today, Baby Bush needs help to decide on the takeover of OPP (other people's property).
Finally, I would encourage you to take a look at the 1805 Constitution of Haiti, in which Dessalines gives further insight into his universalist and progressive vision, including modern values like freedom of religion etc...

May Dessalines' spirit be with you my brother!
