So recent political shenanigans in this country and particularly events of the last 24 hours in South Africa have me very worried. As of today, journalists can be arrested without being charged, plucked off the street and spirited off to an undisclosed location.
It is terrifying when the colonised become the coloniser ... or at the very least adopt the horrible mindset of the very people who dominated and abused them. How do we break this cycle?
The ANC is leading this country towards fascism and we the people must once again rise up and fight against this with all our might.
One should never give the state too much power. There must always be checks and balances. Fellow South Africans, wake up and get involved!
Read the article in today's Daily Maverick titled:
It is a sad irony that this happens the very same day that a wonderful initiative like:
- LeadSA is launched.
On second thoughts, maybe it's not a sad irony but a wonderful coincidence that we now have the opportunity to channel our anger over the journalist's arrest, the corruption and greed etc into something positive, where we can make a difference and STOP THE ROT.
