The ANCYL is our future!

29 January 2013, 11:04
Hello everyone.  Yesterday on one article there was a lot of confusion and personal attacks because of a misunderstanding.  I would like to clarify the point I was trying to make.

Think of it like this - it's like the English saying about if you can't beat then join.  So this is my logical assessing:
Instead of trying to fight the big monster, the giant, which in any way is almost not possible, it might be best to join forces with the giant and be a leader within to influence the changes.

I like to play Warcraft and Starcraft in my spare time.  I enjoy computer games, especially the strategic games because they teach you how to strategise to overcome the oppressor.  Every leader should learn strategy and every leader in South Africa should be playing games.

I love my country and I also am a bit concerned for the future but it's time that we stood together and join the giant so that we can all influence the direction of this mother ship.

For this reason, I believe that South Africa's future lies within the ANC Youth League.  I am not yet 35 so I should qualify to join the Youth League which I am considering.

My strategy would be to climb up the leader board within and as I go, be the leader who leads and strategies to help steer the Youth League ship and the greater South Africa.

If the youth are said to be our future, then the ruling party Youth League are the majority of our future and that is the best strategy to help influence change for our collective future.
The ANCYL is our future!
