Catching the dreams of the New South Africa in a basketful of Hope

25 April 2014, 07:15

Knowledge is Power...not guns...not money...not jobs...knowledge... not even service delivery ....or status... it is knowledge that will save south africa from desperation and poverty...from a lack of job creation and wealth materilisiation... one only needs to look at Germany- Japan-Israel... what resources did they have after their own private holocausts? - only knowledge...skills...what they had in their heads.... something not even a nuclear bomb can take away. So how do you spread this knowledge? - Bill Gates wants to do it with World Wide Free wifi- starting in Africa... And the Africa Unite Movement and party support this initiative. I spoke to the head of Microsoft for Africa in London specifically on this topic...some years ago.. this alone will create so much new wealth and jobs... but theres more...much much more!....

We need to empower the youth and the unskilled with FREE financial literacy courses that amount to a drivers license on financial litaracy....this will reduce domestic violence and poverty by at least 20%.... if people are in control of their finaces and can mange their money and their own households... by having the knowledge of how to do so... so many marriages will be saved... so many lives will be turned away from drugs, alchoholism and waste....

You see we can learn classic things at school...but the more important things are survival skills for life... we can also extend that to other life skills...such as how to change a to resolve conflicts... and then of course there is entrepreneurship.... how to immediately turn someone into a breadwinner that is able to sustain himself or herself with almost NO capital... and then there is how to improve service delivery in our local areas... the AUP has a plan to make that happen... again... it is the knowledge how to solve problems and be creative to solve them by using the knowledge resting in your head... or if its not cultivate it...

We can get you going in your own business with R100.And we can turn your very little into much multiplying and duplicating and managing yor finaces in a disciplined way. It can be done... yes, you can create jobs by putting people to work on public works programmes...but thats not going to build a is only knowledge that will... thats why we are advocating a 6 month volunteer patriotuic service- to improve the knowledge we have for each other... and for our can be done...and we can build this nation... but it must be through tertiary education and good basic education... but most of awakening and shining your light...into the darness... its your south africa... make it happen....

Dont do it for Madiba...because he would want you to do it for yourself!

OUTA on EToll Debr

I really believe Outa is "smoking something" - they are now calling EToll laws unjust and irrational, a far cry from their initial stance of lack of public involvement. Read more...

I think Malema's statement that people are more willing to take out medical aid for their pets than for their employees is grossly exaggerated.  Read more...
