Gods Among Men - Part Extension To White Genocide...

03 April 2013, 11:55

"We all are worms, but I do believe I am a glowworm." - Winston Churchill

I often sit back and wonder at the marvel that is mankind.  We scurry about with an overflowing sense of importance, often self-importance.  Busy about our days with tasks and deadlines.  Goals to be attained in life, things that will help define our lives and personal achievements.  All constructs to mask the burning question of purpose, a question we rarely answer.  You can define the purpose of what you are doing, but not why.  The why is usually some nonsense about what you are doing, an infinite loop.

To get back to my interpretation of the quote above as it came to mind yesterday as I read some comments on another post(http://www.news24.com/MyNews24/White-Genocide-What-nobody-wants-to-see-Part-1-20130402).  If you've already read this and don't like your point of view questioned, don't bother reading, because all you'll do is aggravate yourself.

People want to be understood but never take the time to try and understand.  The writer wrote about their personal experience with what some individuals have said and formed an opinion: that if the individuals he came across are like that it stands to reason that there would be more.  Not to say that all were like that, but they are out there.  The conclusion that there are such individuals he combined with the thought of why these types of murders are happening.  By putting these ideas together he formed an opinion rather a theory. From this opinion he posed a question.  No one said you will like the question, just that you should look at it and answer it, whether you do so from a completely narrow minded point of view or choose to expand your thought and then answer is up to you.  I would again, in black and white like to put this down, murder of any kind is wrong on any level, we can justify in our own minds as we wish, but it is still fundamentally wrong.  I say this thinking about those that call for the death penalty and euthanasia, in some cases these two stances are have people that a completely opposed to the other, funny little humans.

So, to explore the subject of so called White Genocide.  I do agree that the agriculture industry is fundamental to this country's stability. Without it we will slowly wither and find ourselves in dire straits.  The economics around importing most of our food is in an unsustainable model.  Does that mean that as a farmer(excluding the white prefix purposefully), you should be held in a higher standing than any other citizen?  Where government has failed in agriculture, is promoting sustainable farming that results in low cost food, but exportable items as well, economics.  This is their chief failure in agriculture.  Keep in mind that a lot of "A-Grade" goods are exported already from SA to other countries, but we are still reasonably well fed.  My problem with the idea of White Genocide is that it starts to separate and call for a prioritisation of some over others.

"We believe as much in the purity of race as we think they do... We believe also that the white race in South Africa should be the predominating race." - Gandhi

Gandhi protested repeatedly about the social classification of blacks with Indians in South Africa and described Indians as "undoubtedly infinitely superior to the k******"

Kobie Nel, in the comments, quoted a figure of 70 000 white people since 1994(I would like to find the source of his stats).  I gathered figures regarding total murder in SA since 1994, 757 254 people (http://www.iss.org.za/CJM/statgraphs/totals.htm ; http://www.saps.gov.za/statistics/reports/crimestats/2012/totals.pdf).  Take into account that these are totals include intra and interracial aggravators, I suspect the +/-70 000 is the same.  There is no doubt in my mind that there are many of these crimes that are firstly, motivated by poverty and a secondary  factor being race and politics.  The country should be safe for us all.  It is easier to empathise with those that look like you, that's the truth of our species. We clash with each other over minor difference, but will band together against anyone that has less in common than the two us.  Every single citizen in this country is under threat, living a life wondering if a trip to get bread will be your last.    The hope for this country lies in individuals who can stop and think for just a minute and look beyond their usual scope.

I am able to say I feel the exact same sense of loss at murder of a white child as I do a black child, any child, can you say the same?
