Why not just split the country?

22 October 2012, 07:54

I don't know about all of you, but for the past ten or so years, I've been viewing the country as divided.

Us and them.

ANC supporter, and non ANC supporter.

Because yes - we have achieved a modicum of non racial society - and it is ANC supporter and non ANC supporter.

There are, also, stereotypes associated with those, thanks largely to our friend JM.

The average ANC supporter has a hard on for the mines. For resources. For Sandton. For the cheese in your fridge.

Can't we just come to a grown up solution, where those who are married to the revenue from mining get the north of SA, and those who realise that there's more to it than that get the south?

Why not have two states?

Why not create peace? Let those who want mines have them. Let those who want something else have it?

The only real wrangling in the system would be between government and mining companies. Everyone else could move to the coast, take advantage of the one in eight jobs created by tourism, and move on.

We're fighting about shit people. Breaking rocks in mines that belong to other peoples? Stop breaking rocks.

Better yet. Ask why you're still breaking rocks nearly 20 years after you were liberated.

Ask the important questions.

Stop asking how we can fix a fractured society. We can't.

It's not race.

It's mindset.

Down with these as well

Now that the statue of Rhodes is on its way to the hinterland, one would suppose that it will only be a matter of time before all the other symbols of colonialism are destroyed as well. Read more...
