The greatest tomfoolery of the
minority white population in South Africa is its default assumption that
it is, in fact, black voters who are somehow incompetent of how the
mechanisms of the ballot paper are used to improve the Republic.
Ironically, most white, educated South Africans can’t even tell me the
difference between a democracy and a constitutional democracy (or
Let’s get one thing damn straight: South Africa is not a democracy! South Africa is a **REPUBLIC**,
and there are some major differences between the two. So let me now
school those who don’t know the difference between a democracy and a
republic, and they will learn that the difference is all the difference
in the world!
A democracy is a lynch mob … or, as Benjamin
Franklin put it, “Democracy is two wolves and a sheep voting on what’s
for dinner.” Democracy is the favourite tool of the anarchist and the
demagogue. Why? Because it is usually in the pit of anarchy that the
demagogue is born, and demagogues who aren’t born of royalty or with
sufficient influence need the support of a majority to assume the throne
or presidency—the very definition of a democracy.
the conduit that delivers to nations rulers in the form of dictators and
oligarchies (powerful groups) because it guarantees that anyone or any
group who can find favour with the masses will inevitably rule over
them. That is democracy, and nobody would deny that.
assured, democracy will always result produce incompetent rulers and
broken economies because of a simple truth that neither liberals nor the
common man want to accept: Stupid, uneducated, and foolish people
always outnumber smart, educated, and wise people, in any culture and
population on the planet, irrespective of at which point in history you
take the measurement. This is a primary reality of human civilization,
regardless of how advanced we may have become or how much knowledge we
posess—the haves will always be outnumbered by the have nots.
will perpetually hear the word democracy flow from the lips of those
who seek an unfair advantage in accessing the levers of power. Nobody
who loves power hates democracy. The power hungry only abandon democracy
after they have obtained the power they sought through democracy.
takes no special cognitive ability to see that democracy is a very bad
thing for the future progress and stability of a nation. Even Ancient
Greece, the inventors of democracy, fell on turbulent times as one
leader after another was supplanted by a more charismatic and popular
tyrant more tune with the grasping masses.
So what is the
alternative then? It already exists; in fact, you are standing within
the protective walls of the superior replacement for democracy: a
republic—otherwise known as a constitutional democracy.
constitutional democracy (or republic), the democratic process is
retained to allow the people to select their leaders, but democracy’s
fangs and venom glands removed, which means so are the fangs and venom
glands of those who finally reach the presidential office by way of the
Whereas in a democracy the despot or the
aristocratic groups (oligarchies) that reach the top become militant and
then turn on the very people who helped them ascend to the seats of
power, turning the society over which they rule into a prison state … in
a republic, the tyrant or the cadre of elites would still become the
rulers, but they would have to abide by and wield their power in
accordance to the limitations imposed by the constitution, that or risk
having their authority (and power) revoked.
So when you have 65%
of the people voting to have that which belongs to the remaining 35%,
in a true democracy, the 35% ends up under the clubs of the lynch mob of
democracy and becomes the latest casualty of democracy. In a republic,
the 65% majority will have their preferred leaders, but the 35%
remainder will have nothing to fear because the new leaders are bound by
the constitution protecting the 35% minority’s right to be.
you are starting to think that ruling a republic is somewhat
anti-climactic because any power-obsessed group or person would not have
the thing they desire most, namely total power, then you are beginning
to understand why politicians LOVE democracy and hate republics.
politician in the west will ever tell you that they support the
republic! Western politicians only ever endorse democracy because it
allows them to rub their hands together as they wait for their turn to
wield the political club. Thus, the western politician will do ANYTHING
for democracy—including lie, cheat, beg, and steal, as we have so
frequently observed in the west. Don’t think for a second that the DA is
not guilty of this as much as the ANC is. No political party should be
trusted when it trumpets DEMOCRACY for the masses!
The next time
a campaigning politician wants to talk to you about democracy, ask them
what the letters RSA stand for. Watch them choke the words out … republic of South Africa.
am very fortunate to live in a true republic, namely the Republic of
Singapore. I know that many democracy-obsessed western nations like to
call Singapore ‘a neutered form of democracy,’ but that is exactly what
you want in a republic or constitutional democracy! I can tell you that a
republic is stable, safe, and practically all its citizens enjoy
prosperity in some form or another. I would never leave the sanctity of a
republic to again be swept up in the political and economic turbulence
of a democracy!
America, too, was founded as a constitutional
democracy, a republic, and that is why it became the most powerful
nation in the world so quickly—a world leader in every way. But because
of the systematic dumbing down of the American population, by the
influence power-hungry lobbyists and fascists have on the education
system and the media, the average American now gleefully accepts that
America is a ‘true democracy.’ America is not a democracy! The founding
fathers of America absolutely hated the word democracy, which is why I
could use Benjamin Franklin’s quote to demonstrate what democracy really
You can now see what I alluded to earlier: Groups
born from anarchy … trying to brainwash the common man in the street
into accepting pure democracy—all in the hope of one day reaching the
control room of the state and then doing as they please.
to American, South Africa is now starting to feel the pressure of its
dumbed-down education system that allows politicians to convince
everyone (whites included) that democracy (majority rule, AKA populism)
is desirable, and that minorities had best embrace their irrelevance.
is one thorn in the Republic of South Africa’s foot, though: South
Africa’s constitutional democracy allows the republic to be dissolved
and a democratic state to supplant it … provided a two-thirds majority
vote can be secured by any party or leader. Once the winner(s) of such a
two-thirds majority election are allowed to tamper with the
constitution, they could (and would) very well abolish the republic
completely! And—this should be predictable by now—that is exactly what
they set out to do, which is why they will never tell you that you
actually live in a REPUBLIC!
It would seem that post 1994, when
the scales of revolution did not quite tip as far in favour of the ANC
as they had hoped for, the systematic dumbing down of the population
commenced. This act is the equivalent of setting loose the hounds of
democracy to tear the republic apart.
The plan worked
beautifully (as it always does) until greed overtook patience. Despite
the fact that unabated economic plunder was guaranteed to the ruling
party once they secured a two-thirds majority vote, the thieving hands
that ransack the state’s financial coffers were a bit too indiscriminate
and gave South Africans a peek at the future the ANC had in store for
them. The ANC’s majority is now receding because of this, and the
republic is spared this time around.
However, South Africans of
any race or class will always have to fear for the day when some group
succeeds at convincing more than 66.6…% of the population to support its
ideals (or buy into its lies). It is the duty of every South African to
make sure that they don’t succumb to a sense of feeling special and in
If you make yourself a small enough minority, you
will help create the majority lynch mob of democracy, and what will
follow will be a totalitarian state with anarchy on the ground and a
despot at the helm. I need not even give an example, for one has for
some time now neighboured the South African border…
