Solving Unemployment in South Africa.

22 October 2012, 07:54
South Africa has a Gross Domestic Product High!

There is one very easy answer to solving unemployment in South Africa.  The solution involves one of our most natural resources, and will offer self employment to millions of people across the country who will no longer be reliant on government to provide jobs or even large corporations, but will be able to become self empowered through this industry .


 In fact this solution  will encourage small business development and the sustainability of an ever growing middle class society, an essential component  in any healthy Democracy where society is not controlled by monopolies, gobbled up by corporations or held to ransom by Banks requiring compounding interest on loans which bankrupt the population to the benefit of the few.


Our housing problem will be solved through a cheap and environmentally friendly material that is a far better insulator than standard bricks.

Our forestry will be saved and preserved, as paper can be made from the product.


This indigenous product will be a boon to the textile industry.


This product is already used in motor car manufacturing .


Cooking oil and beauty products are among it's other many uses.


What am I talking about?


HEMP.


Naturally grown in South Africa and unfortunately to date only used to get high.


The above industries would be successful in many regions of the country, but especially in the Eastern Cape which is struggling to attract investment and job creation.


If instead of putting South African tax payers into debt of billions, ...


[ with such things as : 
"The Arms Deal," for which tax payers have to pay for planes and boats we did not want or need;


Or daylight robbery of the people of Gauteng with  the E Toll, of which 80% of the income goes to an Off Shore Austrian company;


Or the proposed billions to be spent on Nuclear Power Stations again contributing towards making South Africans a debt society like Greece, when Solar would  be far cheaper and contribute to job creation and small business development............ instead of feeding an out of control corporate monster...]



... the Government embarked on investing South African tax payer's money on small business development with loans to start Hemp production and the manufacturing that results from it,  we could solve unemployment, shortage of housing and create an industry that contributes to our GDP, instead of going into debt of  billions in industries that are draining the South African tax payer and benefiting Off Shore Arms manufacturers, E Toll Thieves, Nuclear Madmen and international Banking sharks.

Theists, please stop explaining!

SilverBack wrote a series of rebuttal articles recently, and one of the issues he raised was the scene where God instructs Abraham to sacrifice Isaac, only to rescind that instruction at the last minute.  Read more...
