We are giving it away our right to live in safety and freedom to anybody with a cupped hand and grasping fingers.
We are not allowed to hit our precious little children because heaven forbid we stunt their emotional growth by showing the physical evidence of behaving like the irresponsible brats they still are.
Previously dominant religions are so busy preaching tolerance and acceptance of all religions that they haven’t noticed that they’ve been overtaken in size and force by the fanatical that care nothing for tolerance and acceptance – only dominance and fear.
Everybody insists that they should have a say in everything – with the terminally ignorant and perpetually stupid jockeys for position alongside the emotional intelligent and socially aware.
The youth are becoming the tail that wags the dog that leaves NO authority left to guide them into becoming adults in both age and mentality.
The principal of all this is good – but the execution and control is where the world sucks right now.
Because leaders will not take a stand in public anymore because of fear. Fear of being opposed or fear of being attacked by an out-of-control rabble.
The fact is that once you let everybody think they have a say and that they will be listened to – you have opened the floodgates for your own demise. It is a logical conclusion that somebody will be unhappy somewhere when a decision is made because not everybody has the same wants and desires as everybody else.
Lines of authority are being eradicated by scores of people thinking that they have the right to change the world to suit them by force while there are ZERO repercussions for their destructive actions.
The Youth League has now threatened to make both the WC and Limpopo ungovernable. In my world that is an act against the government and should be seen as terrorism.
When the people march and in their emotional fervour burn down schools and attack the authorities – then it should be seen as terrorism because they are depriving children of education.
When workers strike because union leaders PROMISED them unrealistic wage increases – then it should be seen as an act of terrorism because there can be NO other result than people being fired in order to make up the shortfall in their finances.
Take our democracy back to the drawing board and make people understand that they have a right to contributing to the final solution and NOT the right to demand the final solution be theirs.
