How long can this country last with the attitude of entitlement, that has entrenched itself into everyday life?
Our economy is coming apart faster than icebergs breaking away from the Antarctic. Crippling strikes, legislation that scares foreign investors away and corruption as I'm told, second to none are the main contributors in the giant meltdown
Yet, despite our current situation, we continue to play the blame game. The "haves" versus the "have nots".
Twenty years of trying to repair the damage from the Apartheid regime is by no means long enough to restore the balance between the oppressed and the enforcers of Apartheid, but it is certainly long enough to have gotten all the basics right.
The fact that the government of the day has rested on it's laurels for the past twenty years though, is a different story altogether. The failure to deliver on twenty years worth of promises is the work of those in power now, not those who came before!
A study has shown that a high percentage of our youth want government jobs because of the high wages they will earn.
If that is not a clear indication of the taking the "easy route", I don't know what is. Why aren't our youths looking to become the next Bill Gates, Steve Jobs and Mark Zukkerbergs?
The government elite, who live the high life on the gravy train. which is blatantly waved in our faces, has brainwashed our young generation into believing that the first job they acquire, would enable them to buy flashy cars and eat Sushi off scantily clad women.
If seeing how Jacob Zuma lives in Nkandla worth R246m and how the majority of the nation lives, is not enough to deter them from following suit, then it will perhaps take another three or four more presidents who feel entitled to reaching into taxpayers pockets for an Nkandla of their own, before they realize that the pipe dream is actually a pipe bomb.
Give a man a fish and he can feed his family for a day. Teach that same man HOW to fish and the Sushi will soon follow.
