One striker, one bullet

14 August 2012, 17:10

Does anyone else find it utterly ludicrous that Lonmin mineworkers are attempting to solve a wage dispute by murdering people?

Not that I haven't harboured secret homicidal fantasies about one or two of my previous employers, but that's all they were - mildly pleasant thoughts of baseball bat blugeoning.

I'd never actually have tried to solve a work related dispute with violence, for many reasons:

Firstly, it's stupid. If you use violence in an attempt to solve anything, you run the very real risk of being criminally charged. I'm not cerebrally challenged enough to see that as a risk worth taking.

Secondly, it's destructive and counterproductive. Then again, with the no work no pay rule wrt striking, it's kinda dom to down tools in an attempt to gain financially.

Most of all though, when you act like a deranged savage like these Lonmin losers, you lose all respect - and respect is a hard thing to earn.

Quite frankly, I think a one striker one bullet policy, in this particular case, would be a good thing.

If these violent losers want to threaten or kill innocent people, then why not solve the problem with a bullet between the eyes?

It's time South Africa stops pandering to these 'people' and starts teaching them that in the real world, strikes are supposed to be peaceful.

These idjits wouldn't know the meaning of the word peaceful, so why not give them a taste of their own medicine?
