Do nothing, say nothing, be nothing. It's the best way to avoid criticism and minimize exposure to risk.
Stand by idly while the nation goes down in flames, chat about it around the braai. Moan, get animated in angry frustration but leave it there. Don't actively do anything but fully intend to should the opportunity arise.
All of us.
While corrupt powers plunder and rape our legacy to our children we sit idly by and do nothing. Every day is business as usual, as if nothing is wrong.We hope it will come right by itself, that someone else will do something, that someone else will take a stand.
The fire burns brightly, lapping at our high walls and electric fences and still we do not run to fetch the hose.
Because we are morons.
I realized this a while back and refuse to stay that way.
Now the info bill.
Will we continue to be morons or will we actually do something?
I'll be looking for someone or something to throw my weight behind and communicate from there.
Don't just stand idly by. Do something, even if you feel it may be insignificant. Just do something!
