Towards the Future, the journey has begun!

A genuine sense of serious nation building requires nothing less than a sober—and sobering—confrontation of the issues. Greatness among nations does not come by accident, nor is it imposed on people. A country, like a person, must prepare—be prepared—for greatness. It starts with right – and rightful thinking.

The subject of race and tribalism is a very difficult subject; but it is a task that I am going to do here because it lies at the centre of this country’s existence. I am going to perform clinical incision with a surgeon’s knife no matter how painful it is going to be. Because the truth and the timeless immensity of reality on this subject has so much been subjected to unimaginable national jobbery.

It is rather an insult for finitude to argue with Infinity. Truth remains the same from timeless immensity, truth cannot be treated like a thermometer programmed to rise and fall at the temperature of the prevailing views.

South Africa above all other things is commonly known for striving for non racialism; a “rainbow” race of mankind. History has consistently shown that illusions are seductive. Whole people, societies and nations through history have constantly been crippled by waves of illusions entertained as reality.

For the 20 years of democracy South Africa has invested far more fury and energy than any country on earth (past and present) in opposing and attacking individuals or any grouping that is perceived to be racial: white only or black only.

Some few examples would suffice to bring home this point:

Take for example how Black Management Forum under Jimmy Manyi was dealt a mortal illness after it was attacked with copious fury in the name of the cheap ephemeral porridge of non racialism. I find the views of Jimmy Manyi very sound indeed. That instead of going out and cramping and hankering with formally white establishments, why don't we strengthen and improve the formally Black ones and even make them highly competitive and far better - since we can marshall government to achieve this.

Take for example how any perceived white grouping (no matter how harmless it is), is hunted down and attacked with brutal relish reserved only for cannibals: calling those with derogatory words like "lily white".

Take for example how our journalists at the beginning of the year, caught by the non racial bug, go up and down the country celebrating their madness, cataloging which schools are perceived to be "only white" and so on.  And afterwards those schools are so traumatized for lifetime because of the malodorous odor these journalists have left behind with their cynical reporting. Why don't we make schools in other areas more better and highly improved that there is no need for this wrestling match. Putting the whole country under stress because there is a little insignificant school in some little corner perceived to be having regulations that prejudice others?

While still on this aspect - it is very sad indeed to see the trend that if a school does not have white students in then that school is skipped and people travel far and wide locating those schools with white students on them. Sad and painful to think about it but it just tell you how pathetic people sometimes can be.

Reading newspapers and listening to radio call-in shows you may notice how the country is so infatuated with non racialism, that tensions and personal collisions at the workplace, or business or whatever social gathering that involve black and white is placed squarely on the foot of racism. This is rather sour grapes because tensions and interpersonal bitterness are part of interaction.

Peace and harmony as well as genuine friendships among the races flourishes and  occur naturally when it is left and relaxed - where at individual level individuals are allowed in their private capacities relate positively to each other. That is the only thing that has proven to work because is based on personal trust.

In the earlier article, “The Reconstructing of South Africa to make it survive” I presented philosophical prisms on South Africa’s foundations. In this article I want to come down a little into the realm of science. Science is practical down below – it is based on the five senses that recites in the physical human body; see, taste, hear, touch, feel. So let us consider our case using science, because that is what the modern person is taught to believe and trust. Jolle Jolles, a PhD student at the University of Cambridge's Department of Zoology and author of the paper titled "Heterogeneous structure in mixed-species corvid flocks in flight" (2013), had made startling findings about group of living species: "Spectacular collective behavior can be found in a large range of animal species, and we now know that often these complex coordinated group movements may be the result of individuals following simple rules. However, rarely are the individual characteristics and social relationships within them taken into account. Our research highlights that these striking displays of group behavior are much more complex." What is complex about group behavior Jolle Jolles explain it further in the paper. He discovered that birds prefer to fly close to members of their own species. Now Jolle Jolles examined and observed closely this issue of birds why they prefer to fly with members of their own species – what it is. Why birds do not prefer to fly with any species of birds because they are after all birds but rather prefers to fly with members of their own specie?

There is an invisible natural force that is infinitely established, and that force cannot be bent, like stars in the sky it remained fixed in its position.

The Jolle Jolles research, which was funded by the British Ecological Society and the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC), was published in the journal Animal Behaviour.

The conclusions from this research establishes first and foremost that all living species, and that includes humans prefer to fly with members of their own species. That is reality and nature. So nature and reality has established a way of life, a way of existence which is segregation and prejudice. Prejudice is a reality of life.

But let us continue with Jolle Jolles' paper. He continues; when different species of birds flock together, their flight formations are determined by social dynamics both between and within species. What does that mean? It means this:

An individual’s strength, vitality and existential mandate are obtained within the race he or she belongs to. The more the person is conscious of his race/specie the more he is able to function well in society. Alternatively the more a person aspires to be non racial the more he is out of sync with nature and reality.

Further as the birds prefer their own specie, they are at peace and harmony with other birds. The social engineering of non racialism not only erodes the inner tranquil strength in the heart and replaces it with the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune but that it has never worked anywhere.

I am always baffled to realise the extent which people can go in clinging to such discredited theories of Lamarckanism.

In South Africa the central dominant orthodoxy is that "we are a non racial society so anything that is black only or white only must be slaughtered":  But it is rather an insult for finitude to argue with Infinity.
