The third high-jacking

10 June 2014, 07:00

My history teacher, way back in 1966, Mr van der Merwe, had the ability to make the most interesting parallels in history events. Through that he not only taught us history but also made us think.

His dramatizing of events brought about the human element in each piece of history. Like his typical sketches of things that happened during the second world war, that kept us all on out school benches in his dramatization of the entire history of the war.

I could imagine myself how Adolf Hitler, after the great depression of 1930, used the up building of Germany for his own grandiose image and high jacket it to proof world survival under his leadership.

Just as fascinating was his dramatization of how the Germans later had to witness how they were being pulled into a world war through their naivety.

“Germany was the first high-jacker of format!” Mr Van der Merwe would tell us.

Little did I know that there would still be a lot of high jacker's of which I would time and time again be the victim.

First there was the idea of self survival that was high-jacked for white-survival that was on the brink of a civil war. After that there was the young and brittle democracy that was high-jacked through grandiose plans of power abuse and self enrichment and South African have to witness in duress how they are on a continues basis being dragged into the desert of economic deprivation.

Are we going to survive this high-jacking or is there a red beret awaiting us?

Why do we go from one high-jacking to another and Germany doesn’t? Must go via hell like Germany to wake up? Do the voters in Germany think clearer as they are not the product

Of a dysfunctional, politisized education? However it may be, we will not survive this third high-jacking and that is gospel.
