One act of tyranny and rape leads to another

02 May 2012, 14:01

``Single acts of tyranny may be ascribed to the accidental opinion of a day, but a series of oppressions, begun at a distinguished period, unalterable through every change of ministers, too plainly prove a deliberate, systematic plan of reducing us to slavery.'' -Thomas Jefferson

The inhabitants of this planet have a penchant for handing their power to external gods, saviours, someone else who will look "after me" etc. Very few will take their future into their own hands and say their are no external external gods, saviours, someone else who will look "after me" etc.

When those who stand in their own power and work tirelessly to achieve their own goal ala Nelson Mandela, Robert Sobukwe etc. then we change society.

I worked tirelessly for achieving the goal of freedom from apartheid, and, though, I didn't believe it would be achieved in my lifetime, it did.

However, since then a new tyranny has begun to develop. This new tyranny began as a pervasive act called the BEE Act. I had my doubts because any piece of legislation that favoured one group over another is undemocratic and unconstitutional. Many of the people I discussed this with, gave the answer that it was probably a redress of the hardship of apartheid, so they condescended to it.

My view expressed then, and now publicly expressed now is, that once a regime goes down the road of oppression, then that expression is in the danger of becoming an oppression and eventually tyranny.

Since then, there has been a cleverly disguised agenda by our national government.

While I can accept that the gross misdemeanour’s of the previous regime were horribly unacceptable, I am equally horrified by the collective actions of our current regime.

I now understand our South African propensity for raping the helpless. It is not only the misdemeanours of the poor that indulge in this activity. It happens at the highest level of government. When I have read about the rape of babies, I felt a sense of despair, that any human being could do this. How could anyone in their right mind want to do this?

However, since Nelson Mandela retired, we have seen a systematic raping of our natural, intellectual, environmental and commercial resources. This has become worse under the governance of the the current President.

Crime and rape, it seems have become a "national sport". Whilst raping your newest conquest you give an order that the Commissioner of Police (appointed by the government) who should be advised that this latest conquest should be shielded from disclosure and arrest. Any prosecutors who may stumble on the evidence should be suspended on trumped up charges, so that no charges may arise. Then you arise smilingly before your concubine and say, "You are safe". Only a psychopath would behave in this way.

Many rapes are "covered up", until many turn on you and see exactly what you are. A rapist.

Until we free ourselves from oppression and tyranny, sadly we South Africans, are lost.

How do we resist tyranny?

The answer is right under our noses. We out vote them, but beleive me there will be a backlash of epic proportions. Psychopathic rapists hate being exposed.

All of us have the power to change our nation. It is our vote, not only our vote, but the vote of our peers, that we have to influence and change.

If you are tired of being raped, ask your peers to join you in a national revolt against oppression, tyranny and revulsion. I did it against apartheid (with many others) and will do it again, and so can you.
