SA needs activists not whingers! There I said it.
Whenever I post on my blog ,all I read in mynews24.com are comments from whingers who lack the honesty to make constructive comments. I know that by penning this,I can expect the usual pyroclastic flow of gall laced responses. So,bring out the knives!
Here's my latest thought.
If laws themselves are flawed or have not kept up with evolving values, then it is the purview of citizens to agitate for change and then leave responsibility to the courts to interpret or uphold their legality or otherwise.The place for activism is not only to be left to politicians. It is also in the streets, and on the Internet and, yes, in the courts.
The biggest danger to a democracy is the emergence of a ruling class that runs the nation according to its personal beliefs.
