Eye opening letter to South Africans

Eagles Fly Alone But Sheep Flock Together.  Author Zwelisha Mthethwa

Indoctrination that forces society to favour someone’s set of beliefs has been existing for decades. This so called brainwashing technique is associated with military and political interrogation and religions conversion. What saddens the most we are all victims of this technique. They spent years studying your  behaviour.           

What if I tell you they brainwashed you the first day you went to school. They used religion and science to brainwash you, especially Christian Religion (No offense to Christians). You were not born a Christian. You did not choose to become a Christian either someone made you think Christianity is the way. Mmmmh right now you think I am talking nonsense, well I expected that because they made you think Christianity is better than other religions. You were told about God’s existence.

I am sure you no longer believe in existence of your ancestors. You call them demons. Do you remember when you asked yourself about the universe, at a young age you wondered what makes see waves, how animals communicate. You no longer worry about those things now; well you are doing what they want you to do. The question is how long are you going to let them manipulate you?

It is logical enough to think of countries with higher economy compared to ours, some of them have few raw materials yet their GDP is high. Right now you are asking yourself why, well they use you to enrich themselves. They came up with entertainment, right now you are playing their music and right now you are watching their shows. When was the last time you played your own music?

When was the last time you played your Afrikaans music? When was the last time you played your Xhosa, your Zulu, your Sotho or Pedi music? You can’t answer that can you? They brainwashed you to think their music is the best and their culture is the best. They brainwashed you to forget about Kurt Darren, Mfiliseni Magubane, HHP (though his music is whack) , David Jenkins, Lira and many more, When was the last time you bought South African music?, When was the last time you bought South African movies CD’s?

Just be honest you’re no longer interested in South African products especially entertainment. Tell me if you still don’t agree with me if I say they control your mind.

They achieved brainwashing people by different means, including technology and media of course. They use media to keep you reading about what is trending while they are busy researching on what they are going to publish the following day. If I can ask now, how many South African books have you read?

The answer may be few or none. When you were young still in high school you thought curvy and chubby girls are hot, but now they brainwashed you to think chubby girls are not sexy. They made you believe big and muscular body is seductive. There was a business idea behind that. They knew they were going to invent steroids and sell them to you. Obviously you are going to buy them.

They completely changed who you are, you are like their sheep now. They drove you and will keep driving you if you don’t watch out. You are busy trying to lose weight or you are busy trying to gain big muscles, when you were a kid you never thought there was something wrong with your body, but why now?. The use of media to define beauty as skinny and muscular body brainwashed your mind.

If you are Zulu, I am sure you remember long time ago, wealthy men were normally recognized by big belly and the majority respected them. They are doing whatever they can to change who you are. They stole the love of your Afrikaans, Xhosa,Zulu or whatever tribe culture you are. They are doing all of this because they don’t have enough raw material to make money like South Africa and other African countries.

When was the last time you used Mxit? Long ago neh. You are now using BBM, whatsapp and iMessenger etc. …but why because Mxit do all what these messengers do and Mxit is cheap. They brainwashed you to always think they are superior that is why you no longer use Mxit. They made computer games to keep you stuck on them, playing them for hours while they develop more games to keep you playing yet they make money. Drugs are used to brainwash people as well.

The funny thing about brainwashing is that they even brainwash our government. They made our government believe weed is bad. Okay well there are negative effects of weed, but the idea behind brainwashing our government was to eliminate competition because if our government legalised weed we were going to grow ours and sell to each other. They brainwashed you to think cigarette is better than weed, so that you will buy their cigarette and you can’t grow it of course. It is logical to think why they don’t like countries like China.

They failed to brainwash Chinese people. Have you ever thought why there is no cure for HIV and AIDS? It is not that it can’t be healed, it can be healed but they want to make money through the use of ARVs imagine someone with AIDS lives up to 15 years. Meaning for 15 years our government is going to pay for ARVs for that individual.

How many people with AIDS? There are plenty. Have you ever asked yourself why they arrest traditional healers who cure or try to cure AIDS? simple because they are disturbing them on their mission of making billions through ARVs. It is true that overpopulation is the main problem in the world, but we can’t say HIV controls overpopulation.


There are few steps to move forward. Stop dancing for their guitar. Don’t be a trend-junkie, be conscious of subliminal messages, believe in yourself, don’t be a sheep, be an Eagle, avoid group thinking and always follow your guts. Do not do something because everyone is doing it. Do not do something to impress people, do it for your own good, and never forget your roots.

Never forget who you are. Be different; be brave and don’t ever be afraid to stand for your opinion. Fly alone like an Eagle ,don’t flock with sheep. There is no problem about being different, Einstein and other scientist were considered different but today they are admired as geniuses. Who knows maybe the opinion you are afraid to stand out for can change the world.

Fly alone like an Eagle or flock with sheep. Eagles fly alone but sheep flock together. Don’t you dare tell me you want to flock with sheep. Be the change you want to see. Be aware of the system that is designed to make you forget about your beliefs to favour someone else’s set of beliefs.

Together we can move South Africa forward, together we can stop them from brainwashing us. Always remember Eagles fly alone but sheep flock together. It will take you and me to move our country forward.

Thank you.
