Happy 1st Anniversary EFF

25 July 2014, 15:04

We knew something had to be done. 'Should we; form a pressure-group, a political party, an NGO, influence the ANC to take a left turn?' It was this session that produced the idea of calling a National Assembly on What Is To Be Done and have it on the 26th of July to pay homage to the glorious 26th of July Movement of Cuba that ultimately took power in 1959 under the leadership Commander-In-Chief Fidel Castro. The movement has since grown by leaps and bounds. It strikingly characterize itself as a Marxist-Leninist Fanonian formation. What I like most about EFF is that it does not claim to have a monopoly on truth, intelligence and solutions. It encourages and challenges thinkers of all intellectual traditions and ideological persuasions to critique it, its ideals and policies. I like that when members of the general public talk about EFF, approvingly or disapprovingly, the discussion is without fail always about IDEAS. That alone is major achievement for an infant organization in a country whose body politic had been diagnosed with apathy of enormous proportions due to the sobriety of the masses of the people from the 1994 rainbow nation mega deception.
EFF still has so much more to offer to the country and continent, provided it is able to manage properly its own growth and evolution and that its core practiced principles and values always remain revolutionary. The biggest threat to the organization is the infiltration by careerists who have no interest in the REVOLUTION. Careerists are generally incompetent and inefficient but even those with some capacity are let down by their selfishness and indifference to the plight of the masses of our people. Conscious of their narrow individualistic agenda and lack of capacity, careerists are highly insecure, fearful and paranoid. They're gatekeepers. They thrive on divisive practices, always plotting and planning idiotic moves. Careerists fear talent, purge it and always want to be surrounded by those they consider to be inferior intellectually and otherwise. Even better if the careerist is in a position to dispense certain financial and political favors to the fighters that he/she has reduced to his groupies.

One believes EFF will always have the courage to pause and embark on political stock-taking, self-critique, reflect and correct itself wherever it is necessary. South Afrika remains among the most unequal nations on the planet, where the wealthy are disgustingly well-off and the poor among the poorest on the planet. I don't think EFF has the time and resources to nurse egos, overlook arrogance, create celebrities, become a haven of power-hungry imbeciles.....I should pen a proper reflection piece!!!

ECONOMIC FREEDOM IN OUR LIFETIME!!!!
