The writing is on the wall.

05 March 2012, 19:52
The writing is on the wall, the Elephant is in the room, the Emperor is naked!

As the rotting dung heap of ignorance and poverty continues to grow, it draws rats, flies and disease at a steady pace.

The rats are crime, the flies are opportunists, the disease crime and corruption.

People in poverty stricken areas begin to get frustrated with the lack of service delivery and the ever glaring presence of disparity between rich and poor.

The stench of their own inadequacy fills their nostrils and they are sickened by it. They want to live a better life and they want a better life for their children.

And then, a saviour appears, passionate froth spewing from his mouth as he encourages them to point their frustration and anger at a particular race.  

This race always seems to have money, cars, clothes and houses. The poor work in these houses, clean these cars, serve them food and slowly begin to despise their laughter.

The saviour makes brash statements in the media, raging against the machine on behalf of the voiceless masses and slowly but surely, more and more begin to take notice of him.

His rise to power is a slow one at first, but then as the masses begin to chant his slogans, his rise to power becomes meteoric.

Sound familiar?

Hitler's rise to power was based upon long-term factors - resentment in the German people, the weakness of the Weimar system - which he exploited through propaganda (paid for by his rich, Communist-fearing backers), the terror of his storm troopers, and the brilliance of his speeches.

       During the 'roaring twenties' Germans ignored this vicious little man with his programme of hatred.   But when the Great Depression ruined their lives, they voted for him in increasing numbers.   Needing support, and thinking he could control Hitler, President Hindenburg made the mistake in January 1933 of giving Hitler the post of Chancellor.  


Some issues don't sort themselves out, they need intervention.

There will never be a war in South Africa. The middle class are simply too complacent and indifferent, going about their business of paying bills and raising children the way any healthy nation should.
They would happily live in denial (as they do) while the walls crumble around them.

'Die Boere' are not a warring people, they hate war. 
No matter how scary some of the radicals make 'die volk' look, they are not easily incited to war. 

It took threats of hell. fire and brimstone at the end of charismatic religious leaders to keep the boers fighting the English because they are not warriors. 
They are builders, farmers and fathers. (Just don't push them too hard because if those Dominies get angry there is trouble).

No, there will not be war, just another African state with indiscriminate crime against blacks and whites alike and a mass exodus of intellectual capital.

A corner needs to be turned, a reformation needs to occur. We need our leaders to stand up and fight for a future our kids will be proud of.

A positive future is possible! Thousands of us labor in the background, working on solutions, contributing to the economy and doing our best to help our fellow man.

We cling to hope, trusting for the best, believing in our nation.


All of it is futile unless we stop Hitler in his tracks before it is too late.
