Excuses , Excuses , Excuses !

28 February 2013, 09:04

Scapegoating, excuses, denial of guilt and playing victim are all common defence mechanisms used by all people at times but amongst the ANC-alliance it has become a reflex action. It is a reaction to criticism, accusations, reprimands or whenever their schemes and plans fail, which is usually the case.

All alcohol abuse and its accompanying miseries are blamed on the "dop" system. Violent behaviour and murder are blamed on apartheid when a culture of violence was established which apparently is transfered from generation to generation, getting worse all the time.

Apartheid is also the cause of our failed education system since black people received "inferior" education at the time and now fail to adapt to well financed "superior" education . The education authorities now have to lower standards and requirements to get learners past grade 12.

Other phenomena like poverty , unemployment , unequal distribution of land and wealth , corruption , rape , drug abuse , child neglect etc all stem from the past according to our president and his supporters.

Only the clever ANC-elite could apparently overcome these handicaps to become wealthy magnates.

An enigma to me however is that the further we move away from the apartheid dispensation , the greater its influence seems to be on events in the country.

Lets hope many voices will join Mamphela Ramphele in denouncing the ANC destructive approach and persuade young people that playing victim has no future.
