An In-Depth analysis of what REALLY drove Apartheid and why it was perceived the way it was -- critical examination of factors never before presented?



I grew up a Liberal in a Liberal English, Christian environment and opposed Apartheid, voted against it, rejoiced when the ANC was unbanned and Nelson Mandela released, etc

I passively accepted everything the Liberal Press and world opinion had to say about Apartheid

Yet today, in 2013, twenty years after the demise of Apartheid, as I have found myself subject to a barrage of African (black) commentary about the evils of Apartheid and how Apartheid is to blame for everything that is going wrong in South Africa, I found myself questioning.

Increasingly I looked back, having been born roughly the same time as Apartheid became a Statutory concept I have lived with Apartheid all my life, and I found that many of the claims that were being made against Apartheid simply did not gel with my reality and did not compute.

I started to question and research and finally came to the conclusion that most of what is laid at the door of Apartheid actually belongs at the door of African Tribal Heritage and Culture and that much of what is real about Apartheid was a defensive reaction by primarily Afrikaner European South Africans to violence, murder, rape, incompetence, etc.

As I prepared to write the book "South Africa -- The Real Issues" I analyzed the situation in more detail and collated a whole range of analysis which supported my conclusion that Apartheid was largely not what it has been claimed to be and was certainly not what it is now claimed to be.

On this page I have assembled a selection of articles from the book and edited them in order to offer a comprehensive technical analysis of the factors that drove Apartheid and why Apartheid was NOT what it is made out to be.

I submit this for your consideration today.

It is hoped that if you at least skim, and preferably engage deeply with this page that you will realize that the fundamentals of the South African situation are RADICALLY different to the way they have been portrayed in the media and that, until these false beliefs are set aside South Africa will continue to head for economic ruin



From consideration of the current situation in South Africa it is very easy to infer a hidden agenda to destroy Europeans in South Africa, however I have come to understand that this is NOT the case, refer

The counterpoint to this is that the motive of Afrikaner Europeans was ALSO not the motive imputed to them by the ANC and the Western world


South African Myths Debunked -- countervailing lies that massively contaminate relationships in South Africa

As I have read various articles in the popular press and listened to radio and TV and observed what is going on in the way of legislation, policies, etc I have increasingly come to understand that there are underlying assumptions or beliefs that my entire life experience tells me are invalid.

This section lists those myths that I think are causing the biggest problems in South Africa today:





The white man brought nothing to South Africa

The white man brought the knowledge,  experience, technology and methods that enabled them to develop farms, mines, roads, houses, provide education, etc, etc – refer separate section “What the white man brought to South Africa


Blacks are descended from a Satanic tribe that bypassed Noah’s flood (Creationist view amongst certain Afrikaners)

There WAS a global flood approximately 4,500 years ago that totally and utterly obliterated ALL life on the planet except the eight humans who survived in the ship built by the man called Noah.

The false belief that blacks are NOT descendants of Noah causes substantial justified resentment and antagonism amongst blacks.


Africans are developed from apes and are much closer to apes than Europeans (Evolutionist view amongst certain Afrikaners)

IF evolution is valid, the fact that Africans and Europeans fit together sexually and are genetically able to procreate functional human beings indicates that they ALL developed from a single man and woman.

This false belief that blacks are originated from another evolutionary strain causes substantial justified resentment and antagonism amongst blacks.


The white man is responsible for the black man’s poverty

400 years ago the black man had nothing of substance – see point 1 – most of them are better off than they were then – it is their inability to create wealth and exploit technology and their excessive breeding beyond their economic capability to support the people they produce that causes the poverty.


Apartheid has suppressed blacks

Apartheid was a REACTION to the barbaric and incompetent conduct of blacks and during the so-called “Apartheid era” huge investments were made BY WHITES to uplift blacks – whites built towns, roads, schools, etc and educated blacks within their own areas in order to prevent them overwhelming white areas (most of which were uninhabited when the white man arrived)


Blacks were created equal to whites

True 4,500 years ago but they have degenerated faster than whites since then or, if you prefer evolution, they have evolved more slowly in the years since there was a single pair of humans – so it is NOT necessarily true today that blacks are equal to whites in terms of capabilities – that said there ARE highly competent blacks who ARE equal to whites but there are NOT that many who have the knowledge and experience to deliver – see the section “There ARE highly intelligent and highly capable Africans – BUT”...


It is possible to put a black person in a position of authority in government or business and they will do the same or better than the white person they replace irrespective of whether they have the knowledge, experience, track record or aptitude to do the job

Whites have prospered BECAUSE they attach huge significance to knowledge, experience, track record and aptitude and only appoint and promote the best.

Almost universal experience of Affirmative Action and Black Economic Empowerment in South Africa over the last twenty years evidences substantively that the majority of blacks in management do NOT know how to do their jobs properly.  On the contrary, they make strategically damaging decisions, ignore fundamentally important maintenance, waste money extravagantly on inappropriate actions, cut costs in the wrong areas and steal because they do not know what else to do with the money under their control.

It is ONLY possible for a person to manage effectively if they have been carefully developed from basic knowledge and experience to management level in the area of endeavour in which they are employed.


All whites are racist

If by racist is meant the aggressive irrational aggression that is evidenced by some blacks towards whites then perhaps some small number of whites are irrationally anti-black but MOST have good reason for their antipathy towards blacks.

If by racist is meant a white person who insists on applying the same standards to blacks that they apply to whites and does NOT make exceptions, indulge stupidity and insists on maintaining white standards then most successful whites ARE racist.

Many (most?) blacks seem to demand that whites tolerate mediocrity, illogical reasoning, inaccurate language, incompetence, arrogant ignorance and, in many cases laziness and dishonesty – Jacob Zuma epitomizes many of these points.


If you give a black everything a white has they will be equally effective

It is probably necessary for blacks to be exposed to white ways of doing things, white standards, white practices for at least two generations before they begin to approach the same levels of strategic insight as the whites they are seeking to replace at senior and executive level.

Early childhood experience is vital to developing this capability and therefore a minimum of two generations and possibly three is required to bring an African from primitive existence to fully equal standing with Europeans in every possible way.

Mother tongue early education is a MASSIVE limiting factor because it excludes the victims from the opportunity to learn effectively in a commercial language, specifically English.


Cadre deployment and affirmative action are a valid responses to the injustices of the past

Cadre deployment and affirmative action have placed a huge number of fundamentally unqualified and incompetent people in positions where they are progressively destroying the fabric of this economy and driving South Africa towards economic disaster.

To the extent that there WERE injustices, progressive accelerated development, such as applied by the South African Defence Force in the 1980’s would be an appropriate course of action – there are NO magic wands.

Most of the claims regarding injustice are false


South Africa is prospering under black rule and that proves that blacks are just as capable as whites

No, there was massive inertia for prosperity in the economy at the time of the handover of power and that inertia has enabled the economy to continue thriving – see discussion on “The Time Trajectory of Economic Collapse

Blacks are squandering the maintenance of the core infrastructure of the economy together with the latent wealth of the country for short term frivolities and extravagance and greed based consumption expenditure and this is progressively causing fatal structural damage to the economy.


Whites have oppressed blacks for hundreds of years

Blacks have outnumbered whites considerably for many decades --today 9:1 – the blacks have never had the collective will or organizational or technical ability to destroy the whites or drive them out even though they had the numbers to do it.

474 Afrikaners defeated between 6,000 and 15,000 Zulus at Blood River because the blacks did not have the strategic reasoning ability to stand back and starve the Afrikaners into submission, or attack at night, or employ other stratagems but instead threw wave after wave of men into a barrage of gun fire which would shortly have abated when the ammunition ran out – then they gave up and ran away!

Even after Blood River the whites did NOT oppress the blacks, the Zulu still live in Zululand today and have never been dominated by whites within Zululand and yet Zululand is one of the poorest regions in South Africa thereby clearly evidencing that Africans are unable to lift themselves up economically.


White males have monopolized the economy and must step aside to give “Historically Dis-advantaged People” their rightful share of the economy

White males conceptualized and created the economy and infrastructure through their own intellectual effort and sweat from a wasteland with NOTHING except grass huts and animal skin clad barbaric primitives.

White people are the ONLY ones who know how to run this economy successfully – forcing them out is opening the door to structural economic collapse.

No one has a “rightful share” in this economy – the whites have earned it by their sweat and toil and if the blacks want a share they should go ahead and create it for themselves.

The blacks have never been “Historically Disadvantaged” – they had the land at their disposal, just as the whites did, but the blacks did nothing with the land whereas the whites developed the land, beneficiated its produce and created wealth and prosperity.


The ANC was founded by Sol Plaatje and others in response to white oppression

Plaatje and others, having gained some level of white education, decided that they knew much more than they actually did and demanded rights that their knowledge, experience and aptitude did not qualify them for – this syndrome, the Dunning-Kruger effect or arrogant ignorance, drives the ANC today with its laws and policies of Cadre Deployment, Affirmative Action and Black Economic Empowerment which are progressively undermining the essential foundations of the South African economy giving rise to the massive economic collapse which is looming.


Bantu Education was one of the most oppressive elements of Apartheid, blacks were fobbed off with second rate schools, teachers and curriculum in order to keep them under

As noted elsewhere Africans had no culture or education that was relevant to a modern economy.

As a consequence African children starting school were at a major disadvantage to European children who had a culture and educational heritage going back hundreds of years and it was accordingly necessary to follow a different and more basic curriculum in order to teach African children entering the school system things that their European counterparts already knew on entering school.

Furthermore, since Europeans were paying the taxes and providing the teachers it was reasonable that they obtained more advanced facilities, active parent involvement also stimulated this – for the most part Africans were paying little or no tax and, certainly in the early years, were supplying very few teachers, the entire Bantu Education system was therefore a levy generously paid by the European community in order to uplift the African community.

Many farmers built and staffed farm schools at their own cost in order to uplift their employees’ children.

In addition, as noted elswhere, Africans have a remarkable ability to break down things while Europeans maintain and enhance them, the net effect of this was that educational facilities provided to Africans remained basic and were constantly needing repair whereas European communities actively contributed to the maintenance and enhancement of their schools through active Parent-Teacher associations, fund raising, voluntary work, etc.

It was the ANC who, in the 1980’s advocated “liberation before education” and instigated the murder of children who tried to go to school!

The lie about Bantu education is one of the most damaging lies of the ANC and white liberals as it resulted in the ANC almost totally destroying the education system for blacks soon after taking power and also resulted in the closing of Teachers Training Colleges and the institution of the massively inappropriate, and extremely badly implemented, Outcomes Based Education system which caused enormous harm to education, particularly to African education.

As long as the above myths (lies) persist and are not debunked and worked out of the economy the looming economic collapse is inevitable.  It is probable that the structural destruction of the South African economy has already developed such inertia that total collapse is inevitable.

What is an Economy? -- REALLY? -- an examination of the fundamentals that drive an economy in order to understand this thing we call Apartheid

The word economy is frequently used and frequently abused.

Having been exposed to a basic understanding of economics in the 1980’s I have from time to time pondered the question “what is this thing we call an economy?”

This article seeks to answer that question based on my observations over the entire duration of my life.

The following headlines seem to me to be the most relevant subject areas in determining the success or failure of an economy with particular reference to the economy of South Africa at present.


1.  Succeed by engineering against failure

In considering the points that follow there is a fundamental principle applied by engineers which is "succeed by engineering against failure" – this principle requires that we identify the things that cause failure and manage them out of the project or environment in order to achieve successful outcomes.

Thus, when the points below address negative issues this is done from a perspective of addressing factors that cause failure in order that we may design failure out of the economic system.


2.  An economy IS a symbiotic collection of human beings

Over the last few years, as I have become increasingly aware of the importance of early childhood experience, I have concluded that an economy is a collection of people who harness knowledge and experience symbiotically to create a financial dispensation that is better than that which existed previously.

Symbiosis refers to the productive coexistence of organisms in nature or to the productive coexistence of people in an economy.

One person identifies a need in society and starts a business in order to service that need.

In order for that business to run effectively other knowledge and experience is required, other products are required, etc and so the operation of that business symbiotically creates the need for other businesses or enterprises and so the economy grows.

If the vision of those who are starting businesses and other enterprises is ambitious the resulting economy will stretch limits and push boundaries.  If the vision of those people is constrained, as in a survival economy, the resulting economy will be constrained.

And so we see a close correlation between symbiotic increases in knowledge and experience and the growth of an economy and, by extension, loss of knowledge and experience leading to a contraction of an economy which is the threat facing South Africa today.

It is the attitude and vision of people which determines the scale and success or otherwise of an economy.  Thus we see that in some nations there is much greater prosperity than in others.


3.  2% of the population define the economy

It has been said that 2% of a population know how to create wealth and that these people define the level of prosperity of the society, 12% know how to mobilize talent and resources to assist the 2% to create wealth and the remaining 86% are oblivious to the workings of the economy and think that wealth happens by magic or favouritism or some sort of behind the scenes connivance directed at depriving the majority of the something that is actually theirs.

The lack of awareness of this statistic is a major problem in most economies today and in particular in South Africa.  Where politics and other actions alienate those who know how to create wealth and those that know how to assist them to create wealth such that those people leave, as has been happening in South Africa for some time now, the economy starts to decline.  The decline may not be visible to those who are not aware of the finer details of how an economy works but they are visible nonetheless.

If South Africa is to provide wealth for all its people it needs to attract and retain those who know how to create wealth and those who know how to assist them to create wealth.


4.  An economy is NOT something that can be redistributed

Inherent in the previous points is a realization that an economy cannot be created by redistribution.

If the people who are not wealthy knew how to create wealth they would be wealthy, there is nothing preventing them from becoming wealthy.

Commercial farmers operate large farms not because they were given the farms as some sort of hand-out but because they have proven their ability to mobilize resources of capital, machines, people, etc to conduct agricultural endeavours on previously undeveloped land in a manner that allows them to draw a moderate income and still have money left over to buy seed, fertilizer and other inputs and pay workers.

If the workers knew how to do this there is plenty of vacant land available for them to demonstrate their skills in this area.


5.  Engineering, technology and methodology are central

Technology and technical aptitude are central to the success of an economy.

A society that carefully applies technology and methods and maintains and nurtures that technology is one that will prosper, a society that drains finance away from maintenance of infrastructure and construction of new productive infrastructure such that existing infrastructure decays and becomes derelict, as is increasingly happening in South Africa, will eventually sink into poverty and so-called "third world" status.


6.  Attitude, morale and words make or break an economy

People with a positive attitude and work ethic and positive morale build up other people and the resulting synergies raise the level of emotional energy in the community and this creates wealth creating activities.

Negative and destructive words, like "kill the Boer" destroy morale and break down the fabric of society.  Constantly complaining that the bulk of the economy is "dominated" by white males when white males have created the economy in question is destroying morale and creating a situation where those of us who are deemed to be offenders because of our gender and skin colour are increasingly incentivised to seek other countries which recognize our skills and abilities.

The same discrimination in the reverse direction up to about thirty years ago was equally destructive, taking unacceptable behaviour and turning it around in the opposite direction does not make discrimination any more palatable or effective.


7.    Lean and facilitative Government stimulates an economy

Universally around the world we see that Governments which limit their direct involvement in the economy stimulate growth far more effectively than those that get actively involved in the economy and try and manipulate and control it.

An economy is a consequence of the collaborative and cooperative efforts of human beings who know how to create wealth, it is NOT the outcome of bureaucratic interference in the economy by people who clearly do not know how to create wealth – otherwise they would be independently wealthy in their own right.


8.    Early childhood experience creates the foundation for an economy for education to build on

I continue to see how the performance of adults is framed by their experience in the first seven years from conception.

Personality, work ethic, career interest, behaviour in relationships and many other characteristics of human endeavour are informed and dramatically shaped by early childhood experience.

If we desire to see wealth distributed more widely we need to distribute the knowledge and experience in early life that will enable the majority of the population to contribute more directly and more dynamically in growing the economy.  In the absence of such stimulation and in the presence of badly planned and badly executed experiments executed on an entire generation, as we have with Outcomes Based Education, we will see a degradation in the economy twenty to fifty years later.

While having a lesser impact, Primary, Secondary and Tertiary education must all be of a high standard if the economy is to thrive.


9.  All the rest

There are any number of other factors that inform the viability of an economy but I believe that those listed above are the principal factors.  If the factors above are addressed there is a reasonable prospect that an economy will prosper, if these factors are ignored or, worse still, countered, the economy will degrade although this could take up to fifty years to become visible.”

As with the previous article you will see in the rest of this book that I have become significantly more conservative than I was at the time I wrote the above article.

What the European (white) people brought to South Africa -- REALLY -- the things that were NOT here when our forebears arrived -- fundamental to understanding Apartheid

The following article was written in late 2011 but not accepted for publication, presumably because it was regarded as too contentious.

I can remain silent no longer.

On 24 October 2011 Julius Malema was reported in various press reports as saying "the white man brought nothing to South Africa" this follows repeated claims that "whites are criminals and thieves" – see below for one of many examples:


It is my opinion that Malema and other alienated youth are rapidly stirring racial tension to extremely unhealthy levels.

Last Saturday, 22 October 2011, I watched a program on the History Channel on the rise of Adolph Hitler and the Third Reich -- something that I studied in some detail earlier in my life – my father spent years as a prisoner of the Nazi's.

I then watched a program on the lead-in to the Russian Revolution at the end of the First World War  (Dr Zhivago).

The psychology of massive unemployment, harsh accusations and incitement was too close to what alienated youth are saying and doing today to go without comment.  In both cases millions of the unemployed were killed as cannon fodder.

The passive non-response of those who could have changed history but did not believe that what was happening could be so bad, also has parallels.

It is my considered contention that unless robust CONSTRUCTIVE action is taken to contain and reverse the toxic racial psychology that is being fueled by the alienated youth there will be massive black on white violence in the not too distant (less than ten years) future.

I submit that in order to prevent this it is vital that ALL South Africans confront the truth about the value that white people of European descent have brought to South Africa.

In writing what follows, which is the result of careful consideration over some years now, I do so as a graduate engineer with considerable experience.  This experience has included the realization that it is a fundamental engineering principle that "success is accomplished by designing against failure".  I have also come to understand that "designing against failure" requires that one focuses on the factors that will cause failure and the systematic disciplined intellectual response of taking the necessary CONSTRUCTIVE measures necessary to prevent failure.

Thus, where I discuss negative issues I am NOT seeking to be destructive but rather to put difficult issues on the table that I believe MUST be addressed if South Africa is to aspire to a "High Road" long term outcome.  It is my sober and considered opinion that if we do not recognize that the current rhetoric is stoking the fires of black on white genocide and take measures to educate, inform and counter that rhetoric we will make the same mistakes as the people of Germany in the early 1930's and of Russia in the late 1910's.

Having said this, let us soberly consider what the white man DID bring to South Africa over 300 years ago:


1.     Reading, writing, numeracy, time

Reading, writing, writing technology, printing technology, bound books – the ability to duplicate and distribute knowledge, postal services, newspapers, the ability to mobilize and inform people, written instructions, recipes, numbers, numeracy, arithmetic, mathematics, surveying, design drawings, measurement and management of time – the ability to conceptualize and design complex systems, astronomy and navigation -- the fundamentals of creating value without which even the most basic prosperity is out of reach.


2.     Education

Basic education within the family, career school teachers proud of their vocation, universities – formalized sharing of established knowledge, equipping with regard to fundamental technical and knowledge principles, creating the foundation for each generation to achieve beyond the achievements of their parent's generation – the essence of growing a civilization from what existed three hundred years ago to what exists today.


3.     Basic technologies

Basic technologies including woodwork, carpentry, cutting uniform planks and beams, making wagon wheels and wagons, wood turning, metal working, weaving of fabrics, knitting, needlework, stone masonry, kiln fired bricks, porcelain, straight, level, plumb – the fundamentals of basic establishment of a place to live and of migrating into unknown territory.


4.     Agricultural and food technology

Agricultural knowledge, experience, tools and products.  Domesticated and cultivated plant and animal species, trees for timber and fruit, plows, domesticated oxen, yokes, ropes, preservation of food, manufacture of foods from basic materials, a culture of cultivating surplus NOT subsistence and the associated self-discipline – saving seed for next year no matter how hungry you are, cultivating surplus for commercial purposes – the essence of establishing sustainable life in a foreign land.


5.     Mining technology

Mining knowledge, experience, tools and methods, the ability to identify diamonds, gold and other minerals, the ability to develop underground mines and extract and beneficiate the minerals including chemical and metallurgical processes, furnaces, etc – the essence of the ability to move from an agricultural economy to an economy of abundance.


6.     Commerce

Commercial knowledge and experience, currency, trading, banking, economics, managing finance, motivating and organizing people commercially.  Exchange crops for tools, materials, other foodstuffs, etc – the essence of moving from a subsistence economy to a vibrant multifunctional growing economy.


7.     Military technology

Military knowledge and experience, swords, rifles, cannon, explosives, military discipline and drills, enabling them to defeat those who attacked them -- note that they did NOT destroy the inhabitants of the land which they could easily have done – the essence of establishing sustainable economy when surrounded by others who coveted what they had.


8.     Diverse additional technologies

Diverse other technologies and engineering -- build ships, bridges, pump water, build dams, imposing buildings, roads, subsequently railway lines -- the diversity of engineering technical ability on which South Africa is today reliant in order to prosper.


9.     Medicine

Medicine, antiseptic’s, antibiotic's, pharmacology, pharmaceutics, surgery, anesthesia, contraception and birth control -- the full spectrum of life sciences to preserve life when confronted with injury, illness, disease, etc.


10.   Social, government, judicial

Cultural, social, religious learning, complex music and instruments, complex art, formal Government, democracy, formal judiciary, courts, codified laws and legal practices, policing, all that was necessary for an advanced civilization to be established.


11.   Strategic and creative thinking, innovation and executive ability

More abstract but even more critical than all the above the white man brought strategic and creative thinking, innovation, logic, decision making and the ability to execute those visions and make them a reality.  Problem solving, understanding cause and effect.  The ability to visualize a better future state, to plan how to get there, to mobilize men, assets and capital to make that visualization a reality – the essence of what moved South Africa from the state it was in when the white man arrived to the state it is in today as an advanced industrialized and internationally competitive commercial nation.   The ability to MAKE IT WORK!


12.   Religion and knowledge of the things of the Creator

Developed and formalized religion, the Bible, comprehensive teachings, knowledge of the Creator NOT service of demons and witchcraft.


NONE of the above were present in any material way in South Africa before the white man arrived.

There is substantial evidence, supported by current black teachings, which depict King Shaka dressed in animal skins, that the people living in South Africa when the white man arrived were living in huts made of grass and other basic materials, wearing animal skins, using the most basic forms of technology possible and with virtually no technical ability whatsoever and no writing.  Furthermore they lived in a subsistence economy where no material commerce existed.

There is abundant evidence and record of this and no black man that I have heard of has disputed this.  To the contrary, our President is at pains to wear this tribal dress at certain functions and those involved in the commemoration of King Shaka have made sure that he is depicted dressed in this way.  Tribal villages built as tourist attractions stress this very basic, that is "primitive",  existence.


In fact, there is every reason to assert that if the white man had never come to South Africa Julius Malema would not be called "Julius" and he would be living in a grass hut wearing animal skins if one of his elders had not beaten him to death for insubordination.  He would certainly NOT be wearing clothes, watches, etc produced using technology invented by white men to designs conceptualized by white men, he would not be driving a car and living in a house and using technology such as cellular telephones also invented by white men to designs conceptualized and originated by white men.

I am NOT being racist, I am simply pointing out verifiable facts which are available to any person who honestly seeks to establish the truth of South African history.

Insofar as the assertion as to the above having been introduced and led by the white man this can be substantiated in countries around the world.  North and South America and Australasia, not to mention the rest of Africa, demonstrate essentially the same progression of primitive cultures being advanced by the white man to world class technology along similar lines to that experienced in South Africa.  In ALL cases the single common factor is white men and women of European descent.

It is vital to recognize that the knowledge, experience, technologies, methodologies, etc, etc that the white man brought to South Africa as listed above were the culmination of development over hundreds and in many cases thousands of years.  White people did NOT wave a magic wand in order to be able to do these things, they learned incrementally as a society how to do and make these things and they codified this knowledge and brought it with them.  This being so, on what basis is it assumed that people who have not gone through this learning experience can summarily claim entitlement to the same privileges that centuries of learning have purchased for white people?  Claim accelerated access, yes, but just "hand it over" and expect it to continue working?

Having established the truth regarding what the white man in fact brought to South Africa three hundred years ago and evidenced that Julius Malema (an most of the ANC) is seriously and dangerously misinformed, let us move to some other considerations that necessarily flow from the above:


Some Critical Considerations

Ongoing technological, educational and knowledge and experience advancement led by white men

In the 360 years since the white man established the first settlement in South Africa, the sub-continent has moved from a situation in which human beings existed under the most basic subsistence conditions to a point where South Africa has for many years held its own with other countries around the world in terms of Civil Infrastructure, Commerce, Banking, Mining, Medicine, Education, Engineering, Justice, etc, etc – in fact, in all the areas listed above South Africa has, for many years, ranked with the best.  Throughout this period the principal leadership has come from white males assisted and supported by white females with some support from people of mixed race and people of Asian origin and some from those of African origin.

There HAS been involvement from black people but it is a harsh reality that black people have seldom provided the initiative, the strategic concept, the vision to drive these technological and sociological advances.

Black people claim that this is the consequence of "oppression" by whites and, it is so that there HAS been some measure of discrimination and that in later years there WAS some harsh race based legislation.

My parents and my generation of my family have NEVER supported that activity and throughout our lives have done the best we can to uplift black people, to work within the democratic mechanisms available to us to oppose apartheid, etc.  Accordingly, in reading what I write here you should NOT draw the conclusion that I am some sort of maverick "racist" who has survived from a dark and desperate past.

I AM a liberal intellectual who has been passionate about this country all my life but who has recently reached a point where I can no longer contain my concern and feel I must respond to the statements that are being made by Malema and others and the increasingly harsh and hostile discrimination that I experience as a white person.  Frankly I am tired of having to fill in race based questionnaires in order to conduct business, I am tired of continuous declarations, right up to the President himself, that there are “too many whites” (the necessary arithmetic and logical equivalent of "not enough blacks").

I have worked hard all my life, so have all the white people that I know, I have never received or given so much as a cent in backhanders in order to secure business and I do not know a single white person who has done this.  I know that I and my fellow white people and particularly my fellow white men have, through the sweat of our brows, built this economy to what it is today just as our white brethren in many other nations have done in those nations.

I do NOT mind sharing what I have but I resent being called a "criminal" and a "thief" and I resent it being said that my forebears brought nothing to this country.  I am certain that virtually all white people feel the same way.


So, let us consider a few other necessary conclusions from the information that I have presented above:


Nobody lifted up the white man

The white people of South Africa and, in fact, the white people of the world, have NEVER had a people of superior accomplishment uplift them, teach them new things, give them new technologies, give them access to advanced commerce, etc.

The white people of South Africa and the world have developed ALL the significant technologies and methodologies that make up the essence of global commerce and prosperity that are outlined under the headings above THEMSELVES, of their own creative initiative, of their own hard work, long hours, sleepless nights, etc.

Yes, they HAVE been ably assisted by people of other races and nations but the strategic creative initiative has come first and foremost from the white, European peoples.  In Asia this has been amplified by the Asian peoples who have seized these technologies and methodologies and made them their own and, in some cases taken them significantly further.

If we are willing to confront harsh reality there is virtually NO evidence that black African people from sub-Saharan Africa have in any meaningful way seized the opportunity and uplifted themselves.  Yes, they have provided cheap labour but it is apparent in the countries of Europe in particular that those economies have prospered technologically and commercially without cheap black labour thereby evidencing that the white man does NOT need the black man in order to succeed.


Black people have failed to learn critical skills from white people

It is time for black South Africans to stop demanding that the white man give away what he has built up through hard work and seek to understand how the white man did it and seek to emulate the white man.

YES, we DO have a legacy of the white man withholding this information to some extent BUT there is massive evidence that the majority of black people have failed to learn even the most basic knowledge of the white people.

It is several hundred years since white people in simple wagons they made themselves trekked into the hinterland of South Africa as "settlers" – people with ability who were able to take possession of land that was largely uninhabited, where those that were inhabitants were unable to defeat them and where many welcomed the newcomers because of all the nice "stuff" the newcomers brought with them.

There is no global precedent, let alone in Africa, of a militarily victorious civilization being OBLIGATED to make right those they overcame, in many cases in history the defeated foes have been utterly destroyed – South African white people are, in fact, characterized by a more generous spirit in this regard than virtually all other peoples.

Throughout the history of South Africa black people have VOLUNTARILY come to settle close to the settlements of white people and to sell their services in exchange for the stuff the white man had, be it different kinds of foods, household effects, appliances, etc.

BUT there is a huge reality that it is time we all recognize – in that roughly three hundred years white men have developed technology that includes aeroplanes, motor cars and trucks, computers, flushing toilets, electricity, etc, etc – the list is endless.  These technologies have replaced the sailing ships, covered wagons, hand pumps, handwritten documents, etc, etc that existed 300 years ago.  Yet still today we see no evidence that the majority of black people have learned to create even the basic necessities and technologies that the white man has passed beyond in his development.

Black people build primitive houses that are not to the standards the white man built 200 years ago although all the materials are available UNLESS they use the white man's materials.  Millions of black people wait for government housing to be built using technologies, infrastructure, governance, communication, etc created by white people instead of learning how to build houses themselves.

The recent uproar about government failing to enclose toilets would be comic if it were not so tragic – the white man has NEVER had anyone to build him toilets, let along enclose them, he designs and builds them himself using technologies he developed.

The white man has never had anyone hand over an economy or business to him, he has built it all from scratch – as Julius Malema correctly observes, the white man did NOT bring anything physical with him – so, by extension it is incumbent on black people to acknowledge that white people have BUILT all that exists in South Africa themselves – yes, assisted by black people but NOT at the strategic, conceptual, creative, executive level.

The reality is that the vast majority of black people have failed to learn from white people.

Birth control is another issue – most white people voluntarily limit the size of their families, many black people do not – a major reason for the current imbalances is the rate of growth of the black population – large families hinder the ability of people to receive quality education, adequate nourishment, improve living conditions, etc.

Visits to the rest of Africa confirm that in the absence of white people black people polarize to the "have's" who have taken over what remains of what the white man left behind and are misappropriating it at the expense of the "have-nots" who constitute the vast majority of the population.  I recently visited a Central African country which had imported white South African men to run a mine that belonged to an extremely wealthy leader who had appropriated it during the revolution – black people govern but they cannot exploit their mines without white men.

In the same country, derelict farms, once operated by white people who were killed or kicked out thirty years ago are now occupied by black people in crude dwellings who produce just enough basic foodstuff to subsist on even though they have at their disposal the pattern of building of the white man and the land that the white man gainfully cultivated.

It is time that we look deeper than "colonial oppression" and recognize that black society does not provide the knowledge and experience necessary to develop and operate an advanced high technology society such as that in South Africa.  There are some fundamental things that white people know that the evidence clearly proves that most black people do not know – these are NOT in the sphere of the obvious areas – there are many highly intelligent and well educated black people BUT most of them are failing to govern and manage this country effectively.

For those with eyes to see the infrastructure and economy that was given to black people "on a plate" twenty years ago is slowly decaying and collapsing and going the way of the rest of Africa.  The cracks, like the cracks in the roads, are not highly visible but they are there for those with eyes to see.

I do NOT believe that black people are stupid, I do NOT believe they are genetically deficient BUT they are doing MANY reckless and foolhardy things, including allowing Julius Malema to spread his poison unchecked, that are in the process of destroying the economy of South Africa.

There is critical knowledge and experience that is lacking.

There is a critical need for black people to cease driving white people out of business and out of the country and to start seeking to learn from white people at a much more fundamental level.  There ARE some black people who ARE seeking such knowledge but, in my experience, they are NOT in the majority, there are far too many in positions of power and influence, with big mouths who are woefully ignorant and woefully arrogant.


White people have been generous

One of the things about this negative rhetoric that really gets to me is the level at which it fails to recognize that the white people HAVE done much for black people.  My family has always assisted black people but frequently that help has failed to produce anything sustainable and been followed by MORE pleas for help.

As a child my father regularly trained his gardeners to drive a car, in his own time and at his own expense and then helped them to find work as drivers at a better salary than he could afford to pay.  On one occasion he gave one of these men a brand new Toyota Hilux bakkie (pickup), a gift of well over R180,000 value in today's terms.  His goal was to enable this friend of the family to start his own transport business and prosper.

Ten years later the bakkie was a wreck and the former employee was still working as a driver for a white man.  The gift was in vain – he lacked the knowledge and experience to operate a commercially profitable transport business and seemingly lacked the motivation and initiative to find out how to do this.

This story sums up other incidents where my family has tried to help and seen the funds invested at significant personal sacrifice squandered unwisely.  This story sums up Africa with billions of US$ and Euros and Pounds of aid poured in over decades to produce nothing sustainable other than wealthy black despots who exploit their people and trash their assets and despise white people.

Is it any wonder that reports indicate that well over 1 million white people have left South Africa in the last twenty years and that the exodus continues – those with eyes to see and ears to hear the likes of Julius Malema are able to look at the rest of Africa and see the writing on the wall and those with the means to leave are leaving.

The problem is, that as they leave the South African economy is being undermined in subtle ways that may take another decade to become visible but where the rhetoric of Malema and his henchmen are steadily accelerating this decline.

It is so that in any Eurocentric economy only about 2% of the population know how to create wealth and about 12% know how to assist them – these are the people who are increasingly leaving South Africa.



I have been highly committed to this country and ALL her people all my life but I now find myself seriously doubting whether there is a future for people of European descent in South Africa other than as the victims of genocide.

I believe that right now South Africa is at a fork in the road – either ALL those of goodwill stop driving white people out of the country and stop ALL anti-white rhetoric or the alternative WILL indeed be too ghastly to contemplate.

If, having read this, you find yourself able to agree with the essential message, I ask you to forward this to all you think will respond constructively to it.

Right now we need those who can see this picture to actively and energetically take CONSTRUCTIVE action to halt the slide into anarchy.  From where I sit that means actively educating people, it means acknowledging and being grateful to the white people for the positive things they have brought to this country, it involves actively encouraging white people to remain, it involves ACTIVELY terminating rabble rousing destructive rhetoric, it involves ACTIVE POSITIVE action by the current government to give the remaining white people reason to stay and invest, it involves being honest about the true history of this country and what the white man really DID bring to this country.

Finally it involves engaging in active research to understand the intrinsic knowledge and experience that vests primarily in white people, documenting that knowledge and providing accelerated learning opportunities to enable the ENTIRE population of South Africa to profit and benefit from what we have and to GROW the size of the pie and CEASE trying to "redistribute" that which is not capable of being redistributed – the knowledge and experience that makes the wealth possible.

If you are NOT prepared to actively campaign for such action then, if you are black then at least work to make it easy for us to leave, and if you are white prepare for war whether you want one or not.  If you do not believe me study the rise of Adolf Hitler (there is currently a program on the rise of the Third Reich on the History Channel) and the start of the Russian Revolution (Dr Zhivago is a good place to start), listen to the rhetoric and compare the situation with Julius Malema and others of his ilk – history is about the psychology of human beings and this is why it is said that "history repeats itself" – it is my sober contention that UNLESS we change something CONSTRUCTIVELY in South Africa VERY SOON, the uprising that Malema is increasingly openly speaking about WILL happen – there are too many desperate people out there with nothing to lose and therefore susceptible to the erroneous message that Malema is broadcasting and which triggered my decision to write this message.

I pray that you will give this message sober consideration and then act where action might include distributing this message to all who will listen, it might include publishing it in every newspaper and magazine that cares, it might involve taking to the public stage and entering politics.

                               The stakes are HIGH!!!

                               What will YOU do?”


             Regrettably, since writing the above piece the situation has deteriorated.  Yes, Malema has been muzzled                    but, in his place, the President leads tens of thousands in singing “The Cabinet will shoot the Boer with machine guns”.

There ARE highly intelligent and highly capable Africans -- BUT ... -- Critical Impacts necessary to understand Apartheid

As I have been compiling my notes, analysing the diversity of questions that have come to mind, examining what I see around me as I drive around, I keep coming back to my liberal upbringing and what that causes me to want to believe about the highly educated African people that I have encountered and worked with.

BUT, when I eliminate the unconscious grace I have been giving them I keep coming back to some uncomfortable conclusions:


1.   Critical thinking and analytical ability seems to be deficient in the vast majority of them as evidenced by Press reports about what they say about the economy.  They seem universally unable to comprehend cause and effect and articles about US Blacks suggest a similar phenomenon.


2.  There seems to be an ALMOST universal lack of fundamental understanding of the essence of strategy, management, economics and leadership as are required for an economy to thrive.  Even though some of them preach these concepts.


3.   Where one encounters a successful African business owner they nearly always have a European, Asian or Mixed Race person or persons in the background who is providing advice and guidance.  Some of the most genuinely successful African business people are those who recognize the value of employing people with high value knowledge, experience and aptitude EVEN if they are white.  Some of the biggest disasters, in most ANC areas of operation, occur where ALL whites have been driven out and there are no Indians or Mixed Race people.  Lots of little African craft businesses actually have a white somewhere behind the scenes tying it all together.  Interesting that South African Revenue Service (SARS) still have whites in a lot of key positions to make sure the ANC gets its money.


4.    An almost universal lack of accountability – inability to say “the buck stops here” – there is always something or someone to blame and, if all else fails, blame Verwoerd (he’s only been dead 46 years).  A strong tendency to a “victim drama” exists.


5.    An almost universal lack of integrity – blaming Apartheid and Europeans for things ONLY Africans could do – there was NO technology, NO formal education, NOTHING when the Europeans and Africans first met – ALL that exists in South Africa today was conceptualized, designed and built by Europeans and to a lesser extent Asians.  When I say “built” I am NOT referring to hands on the pick-axe handle (another African misunderstanding) – I am referring to the intellect, the knowledge, experience, initiative, intuition, mental effort that gave rise to the things that exist.

This extends to a seeming propensity for highly intelligent Africans to resort to fraud when they deem it appropriate and to apply their intellect in devising clever scams.  I have personally been ripped off by a man I had known for about five years who I respected and trusted highly and who then, when it suited him, lied through his teeth to defraud me of tens of thousands of Rands.


6.    Reversion to a Power-Fear mind-set the moment Africans are in a “one up” position – particularly evident in Cadre Deployment and Affirmative Action.  Young Government officials who arrogantly close down mines and factories, some never to re-open, arrogant Affirmative project managers who show no respect for team members decades older than themselves, etc.  “I am in charge, do what I tell you or else, even if I am totally destroying the plant or the project or the …”.  And you are RACIST if you suggest that I am wrong!


7.    Lack of practical value creating initiative and creativity – good ideas but NOT workable ideas and no recognition of the need to employ expertise to help them – there ARE exceptions but they are few and far between, particularly, it would seem, in the ANC leadership.  They are able to copy, able to initiate destructive policy, do the wrong things but unable to truly create value.  That which the ANC HAS accomplished that is positive has been through the Whites, Coloureds and Indians that they are increasingly getting rid of.


8.    Lack of understanding of, and commitment to, Democracy in anything that vaguely approaches its pure form – Democracy has been translated into support for the ANC no matter how corrupt or incompetent – get on the gravy train, destroy the economy, blame Apartheid.


There ARE some Africans who are honest, hardworking, intelligent but it seems they are a VERY small percentage.  There appear to be more from countries to the North than those in South Africa but there too the practical evidence points to a MASSIVE deficit.  They can be highly competent at the 95% level of operational and tactical issues but at the 5% level of strategic issues they fall horribly short.

The Black Settlement Phenomenon -- Total lack of creativity and initiative -- The Social Helplessness of the Black Majority -- vital to understanding "Apartheid"

1.  One of the hugely false claims of Africa, Africanism, the ANC and Africans generally is the allegation that Europeans, Mine Management, etc force Africans into poverty in squalid camps where they struggle to exist.


2.    The bitter pill for Liberals to swallow (speaking as a former Liberal) is that no matter where one goes in Africa, including areas that have been “free of colonialism” for as much as fifty years, these conditions of squalor are almost universal, even in countries like Nigeria which supposedly has massive oil wealth (Lagos is a sprawling African slum) – fundamentally it is African people who exploit African people NOT Europeans!


3.    It is a readily verifiable fact that African people who have been living unhindered on the same land for decades have done nothing to develop that land, improve their quality of life or beneficiate their habitat in any other way.  The photo below shows a typically barren African settlement (photo from Wikipedia).



4.   The Europeans who initially settled in this country arrived, built houses, established farms, dams, roads, businesses, mines, etc and generally uplifted themselves.  Nowhere in all my travels in South Africa or elsewhere in Africa have I seen any upliftment save where Europeans, Middle Eastern, Asian or coloured people have provided the leadership.


5.     Evidence in the USA relating to African people supports a view that there is a very deep deficiency with regard to creative initiative which it is very hard to conclude is not genetic.  It may NOT be present in ALL but it IS certainly present in most as evidenced by the conduct of the present ANC Government.  Under primitive African culture initiative was a threat to the king and was frequently discouraged by painful and agonizing death – it seems possible that the genes for initiative, problem solving and leadership were eliminated or suppressed by a survival of the fittest syndrome in the vast majority of African people and perhaps ONLY survive in a very small line of “royal” blood.


6.    Compounding the above, where African people take over properties from Europeans, such as in Hillbrow and Joubert Park in Johannesburg, these properties rapidly degenerate into squalid, foetid, no-go areas again indicative of major inability on the part of Africans to uplift themselves with limited suggestions of possible exceptions and massive evidence of their ability to destroy – the apartments below were respectable Lower Middle Income apartments twenty years ago.




Old Police Barracks Anderson Street, centre of Johannesburg.  Abandoned by Government, NOT secured, African vagrants occupied it, lit fires on the wooden floors and burned the building to a shell.  Still not safe guarded – an accident waiting for a place to happen.


The massive looming structural economic collapse of South Africa foreshadowed in this book indicates that even the African elite in the ANC are subject to these deficiencies.

The Contrasting Psychodynamics of Europeans and Africans -- Why Separateness (Apartheid) was necessary and why it failed

The following psychodynamic elements have been identified and yield interesting insight into why Europeans wanted to be separate from Africans -- remember Apart = separate and heid = ness i.e. separateness:








Degeneration from Noah through Ham and Canaan (cursed) or retarded evolution.

Almost zero technology, primitive, savage subsistence culture seemingly results in deficiencies with regard to cognitive cause and effect reasoning and logic in most of them.

Degeneration from Noah, through Shem (blessed not cursed) or more rapid and advanced evolutionary development.

Advanced technology and culture, strong cognitive analytical cause and effect capability.



Ancestor worship, witchcraft, curses which affect their conduct and bring poverty and numerous other destructive behaviours.  Power-fear, beat and kill contenders for power, harsh, life is cheap.

Primarily Christian / Hebraic, nominally monotheist, love your enemy as yourself, do good to them that hate you, believe the best, justice, integrity, do what is just and right, go to war reluctantly, treat prisoners well, mercy and grace.


Early childhood experience

Ranges from primitive rural subsistence to some European-like upbringing, majority raised in primitive context with limited exposure, mother tongue early life is a massive inhibitor in later life.  Witchcraft. Singing “shoot the Boer” and other struggle songs and talk  “oppression”, “victim”, build hatred towards Europeans even if it is submerged.

Strong emphasis on education, problem solving, wide diversity of learning experiences – home, technical, social, etc – pre-school, deep appreciation for value of knowledge, reward initiative, reading, etc – “civilized” conduct, all the above values.



Filtered through 1, 2 and 3 above and compromised by poorly trained and developed teachers not really equipped to teach, sub-standard facilities because this is where they come from – left to themselves it might take two or three generations to raise the standard but there is a basis to suggest it would never happen.  Parents NOT able to make contributions to schools or schooling because of own low literacy.  Falsely inflated school results.

Huge priority, make sacrifices to educate children, esteem teachers, invest in and engage with schools.  Parents make significant intellectual contribution to schools and assist with management, upliftment, etc.  Supplement learning wherever possible.  Extramural experience, travel, etc.



Exacerbated influence of previous points.

Head knowledge without understanding, limited cognitive, analytical and problem solving ability.  Parrot fashion, rote learning, monkey see monkey do – no deep intellectual capability to problem solve and take initiative and generate wealth through constructive creativity.

Actively sought, pursue excellence, esteem knowledge and experience.

Built on a solid foundation of previous points, able to excel and make a difference and lead in the world.


Level of knowledge and ability

Results in arrogant ignorance – do NOT know how little they know – arrogantly proud of the little they know, think they know it all, unwilling to ask or to learn, no awareness that there is huge knowledge they lack and regard any negative feedback as racism and false.  Unable to work in constructive teams, threatened by competition.

Very conscious of how little they know.  Give the benefit of the doubt, constantly seek to learn more and to learn from others and to collaborate in order to compensate for weaknesses.  Not equipped to deal with arrogant ignorance and aggression of Africans, become angry and irritated when pushed by African stupidity.



Above coupled to Power-Fear culture – if you have the power I am submissive but if I have the power I become dictatorial, aggressive, do not trust, break you down, dominate, exploit, greedy, poverty mind-set – have to take as much as I can for myself.  Treacherous and scheming and do not trust others.  Filter everything through Power-Fear so blame the Europeans for “oppression” when, in truth, it is my fear that is oppressing me and they want partnership.

Culture of Right-Wrong – treat people well because it is right, trust others, believe the best.  Does NOT begin to comprehend Power-Fear and has difficulty believing it exists.

Believes “oppression” because of trust.


The outcome

Radically different psychodynamics set out above coupled to sudden ascendency to power of Africans and “defeat” of Europeans results in Africans regard whites as weak, spineless, lost their power, lost right for respect, to be exploited, hidden agendas are OK, massive murder rate suits our goals.

Do NOT begin to understand all this, cannot imagine it, stuff of horror stories, believe the best, treat people well, concede when not sure – someone MUST have done these things – nobody would make them up – stupor of trust – set-up for destruction.

HUGE effort to build goodwill in the last 20 years.

Understanding Early Childhood Learning and its impact on South Africa, Apartheid and, above all, BANTU EDUCATION

1.    There is a considerable body of knowledge in both education and psychology that basic personality, approach to life, career, etc are largely formed in the first five (some say seven) years of life – some hold that this period commences from the moment of conception or shortly after this while others hold that it commences at birth – I lean to the former interpretation – seven years from conception.  Note that a foetus incurs negative psychological imprinting when the mother considers abortion or cries because she does NOT want the child, or when the mother is abused.


2.   The moment you become aware of this principle you become aware of a huge gap between the majority of European children entering school and the majority of African children entering school – this fundamentally dictates a different approach to early schooling for children from these two groups.  Apartheid schooling at some level attempted to recognize this.


3.    There is considerable evidence that learning in these first five to seven years has a greater impact on adult conduct, behaviour and achievement than genetics – these factors greatly impact foundational knowledge and experience, emotional and relationship behaviour and career choices.


4.    A child that has grown up speaking a technology capable language, such as English or Afrikaans or any of the other European languages; who has been read to from earliest age; who has played deductive and reasoning games and games that include numeracy and commercial skills; has been exposed to executive level interactions between parents and friends of parents and has traveled widely locally or internationally is well on the way to being a high value add, high contribution, high earnings Citizen.  Most European leaders, executives, etc have such experience.


5.    A child that has grown up in a rough grass hut in an outlying area speaking a language that is NOT technology or commercially viable and without exposure to any of the above is highly unlikely to be able to do anything but menial tasks.  If their early childhood experience also includes a poor work ethic they have little prospect of anything but the most menial employment with NO prospect of being able to create value with what they earn – a huge proportion of African South Africans fall into this category and recent actions by the ANC threaten to make the problem much worse.


When this is coupled to adults singing songs like “shoot the Boer”, distorted stories about European “injustice”, “oppression”, “brought nothing”, “thieves and criminals” and coupled with witchcraft and barbaric rites and rituals we have fertile ground for barbaric murders eventually culminating in a genocidal revolutionary uprising with tens of millions of deaths.

The Dunning-Kruger Effect -- Arrogant Ignorance -- Fundamental Driving Force behind false claims relating to Apartheid

This is one of the most destructive factors in the entire equation.

1.    I have referred elsewhere to the Dunning-Kruger effect or Syndrome – this is documented in some detail in Wikipedia at:

The headline definition is  “The Dunning–Kruger effect is a cognitive bias in which unskilled individuals suffer from illusory superiority, mistakenly rating their ability much higher than average. This bias is attributed to a metacognitive inability of the unskilled to recognize their mistakes. “

“Actual competence may weaken self-confidence, as competent individuals may falsely assume that others have an equivalent understanding. David Dunning and Justin Kruger conclude, "the miscalibration of the incompetent stems from an error about the self, whereas the miscalibration of the highly competent stems from an error about others".”

Wikipedia goes on to document various historical references “Although the Dunning–Kruger effect was put forward in 1999, Dunning and Kruger have quoted Charles Darwin ("Ignorance more frequently begets confidence than does knowledge") and Bertrand Russell ("One of the painful things about our time is that those who feel certainty are stupid, and those with any imagination and understanding are filled with doubt and indecision") as authors who have recognised the phenomenon. Geraint Fuller, commenting on the paper, notes that Shakespeare expresses similar sentiment in As You Like It ("The fool doth think he is wise, but the wise man knows himself to be a fool.")).”

The article goes on to provide much more comprehensive information.


2.    Based on my own personal experience of this phenomenon and observation of its workings permeating the South African economy today I have concluded that one might better summarize this effect as “arrogant ignorance” – the party concerned does not know what they do not know and are so convinced that they know all there is to know about the subject that they cannot be taught, let alone engaged in rational intellectual debate.  All the rules of team work and creative engagement which Europeans take for granted and are fundamental to the success of European driven economies are trashed by arrogant ignorance.


3.    This phenomenon can also be summarized as “when you do NOT know what you do NOT know you have no way of knowing what you are doing wrong or of considering the possibility that you might be wrong” – Europeans are constantly aware of the reality that they may lack key information and are always ready to consider another opinion and are diffident in presenting their ideas.  Place these two people in a room together and the arrogant ignoramus will nearly always win because the knowledgeable person will think there is something they do not understand.  Furthermore, in such an engagement it is almost certain that the ignorant person will sooner rather than later play the race card and accuse their superior of racism or of “undermining” them, as has happened to me in a real world situation.


4.    This phenomenon is manifest today with hundreds of thousands of Government officials – Cadres, Affirmative Action and BEE appointments who, in their arrogant ignorance, are trashing the fundamentals of the economy – sometimes at physical levels but frequently at very difficult to identify non-tangible levels.


5.    All Eurocentric economies built by European people have been built on consistent rewarding of excellence, strong emphasis on the importance of knowledge, experience, teamwork and collaboration – the working together of multi-disciplinary teams with diverse and complimentary knowledge and experience, aptitude and proven ability which, together, have created advanced technologies, methods, knowledge, etc.

Introducing even one arrogant ignoramus into such a situation totally disrupts the effectiveness of the team as they constantly interject their inputs which are generally totally off the mark, distracting and disrupting with the result that either the rest of the team give up and walk away or, if they take a stand it almost always degenerates into an ugly racial incident.  Some people are more skilled than others at dealing with this behaviour but technical people, as a rule, struggle to handle it and frequently become aggressively assertive and resort to insults and name calling out of frustration – much of Afrikaner “racism” can be understood through this lens.


6.    Africans with the combination of Power-Fear leadership coupled to arrogant ignorance work harshly against the European approach and marginalize or kill (literally or figuratively) those with ability who are perceived to be threats or competition while the European approach embraces this interaction and seeks to learn from and strengthen the solution by drawing on diverse experience.  This enables the team to push the envelope in terms of achievement.  The Power-Fear-Arrogant-Ignorance combination crushes creativity and drives mediocrity.


7.    Coupled to the above phenomena there is a widely recognized inability on the part of most African people to undertake deductive cause and effect cognitive analysis and reasoning resulting in a composite outcome where the African ANC Command leadership is continually taking decisions, introducing policies and laws and taking actions that are fundamentally trashing the South African economy.

The African National Congress (ANC) is founded on a fundamentally false premise -- this same false premise contributed significantly to Statutory Apartheid

In understanding what is happening in South Africa today it is vital to understand the fundamentals underlying the coming into existence of the African National Congress as these fundamentals inform the way that it is governing South Africa towards economic collapse:

1.    Sol Plaatje (and others who established the ANC?) had limited Mission School education leading to the mistaken belief that they were equal to Europeans while, in fact, they were making many of the mistakes that characterize the Cadres and Affirmative appointees today.  This manifestation of the Dunning-Kruger effect, referred to in this book as “arrogant ignorance” resulted in a situation where they were largely unteachable / untrainable and were therefore marginalized and excluded because they were dangerous in their incompetence.


2.    The ANC was NEVER more than a bit player – it obtained international support as a consequence of certain unwise Apartheid actions and support from rising Communist and Liberal influence in the world as well as a consequence of the upsurgence of African Americans – all of these championed the “ANC Cause” and made the ANC appear to be much greater than it fundamentally was in terms of its own organizational ability and capacity.


3.    The ANC was never a significant military threat in its own right.  In ten years in the command structures of the Citizen Force Conventional forces we never devoted any significant time to discussing the ANC or threats that they represented, this was limited to the Commandos rural defence and Police and, even then, their impact was limited.


4.    The ANC just happened to be in the right place at the right time when the South African Defence Force and Government concluded around 1980 that they could NOT win the war simply because of the weight of population and breeding rate of the African population, NOT because of any material military threat – the ANC were the obvious organization to negotiate with in response to international pressure and sanctions.


5.    There never was significant “oppression”, as discussed elsewhere, “oppression” is the response of African Power-Fear culture not getting its own way.


6.    Mandela, as elder statesman (or consummate actor – there is video footage of him singing struggle songs about killing whites too) gave the ANC the tactical edge it needed to secure a walkover without adequate safeguards for European interests and security as liberal negotiators took the ANC on good faith and caved under international pressure – which we now see to have been a serious mistake.


7.    Asset ownership and people buying in the context of Power-Fear has enabled the ANC to BUY massive support through huge unsustainable handouts and false promises.


8.    Cadre Deployment, Affirmative Action and Black Economic Empowerment have given a massive apparent but unsustainable boost to the economy building on the growth potential that already was in place.  This has created the false impression that the ANC is running the economy well and that the massively inappropriate actions of the ANC are valid and effective.  See the section on “Economic Meltdown” that follows.


9.    The harsh reality is that the ANC was probably more surprised than any other player when they wound up as the dominant player on the playing field as they had never had the organizational ability to get there on their own.

The REAL Historical Population Statistics for South Africa -- Black EQUAL White in 1868 -- vital to understanding Apartheid

Population statistics received recently indicate that there were as many whites as blacks in South Africa in 1868

I have been unable to validate this independently but, given that Europeans and Bantu Africans arrived in South Africa at the same time it appears reasonably possible that these figures are accurate.

This gives a radically different perspective on how matters have evolved over the ensuing years to that which I held at the time I wrote the book and was under the impression that Blacks had always outnumbered Whites considerably.


It is striking that the European population has grown only a limited amount while the African population has exploded.

Once one understands this it becomes apparent that much of the African -- European tension in South Africa has been a response to black population explosion.

We see above that in 1868 there were a few Europeans and a few Africans and masses of country to go round, even so there had been fighting, murder, rape, etc.

The Africans settled in limited areas of favourable climate and the whites settled where they chose, often choosing the more difficult areas as shown in the graphs below.


In 1868 Africans had next to nothing whereas the Europeans brought with them sophisticated technology, methods, etc -- the most elementary comparison of Europe and Africa will confirm this.

At that time most of the Europeans kept as far away from the Africans as they could because of the murder, treachery, etc so they lived separately "apart" by choice

As discussed above, some Africans obtained limited education and then, as a consequence of the Dunning-Kruger Syndrome they started to demand priviledges they were not competent to exercise.  This was happening as the mines were expanding creating large amounts of employment for Africans who were only to happy to participate in the white mans riches and benefits.

They lived in squalid conditions because those were the conditions they created for themselves and because they had to send so much of what they earned home to support those who were sitting at home doing very little.  African squalor is something that Africans create NOT something that Europeans impose on them.  The most superficial inspection of Africa, including parts of Africa where Africans have taken over infrastructure from Europeans, including Hillbrow in Johannesburg, evidences that this is the case.  Blaming Europeans is totally inaccurate and fundamentally unjust.

As early as the early years of the 20th century the ANC was threatening violence and further alienating Europeans and encouraging them to seek separation "apart-ness".

It is apparent from the population graph above that by 1948 the black population was very much greater than the white population and this was a major factor in the promulgation of Statutory separateness or "Apartheid".

Coming just after the Second World War and the associated horrors and coupled with the fact that some Afrikaners were of German descent and had been pro-Germany in the War this created a context for the Liberal Western World to totally reject Apartheid and any form of race classification, permits, etc -- Statutory Apartheid was a major Public Relations blunder by South African Europeans.

By 1981 the African population was more than five times the European population resulting in the South African Defense Force advising the National Party Government that they could not win the war, the blacks were breeding too fast and the only solution was a peaceful and controlled hand-over of power.

From consideration of this book and website it will be apparent that this was also a really bad judgment call, it might have been the only possible call but it set South Africa up for what is happening today.  The capacity of Europeans to generate the wealth that is necessary to support the drain of African breeding is running out of steam to the point where the Blacks outnumber Whites by close to ten to one today.

We are now facing a point where the burden of the the exploding African population is going to cripple the economy.

At the same time African expectations have been massively raised and so the potential for explosive collapse is extremely high.

The question facing all nations of European origin today, that is all of Europe, Britain, the USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand in particular is whether they will take dramatic and far reaching measures to contain the monster (the ANC) that their liberal policies and misunderstanding of Separateness have spawned through sanctions and international pressure or whether they will at least make a way for their own people, the Europeans of many generations of life in South Africa before they are brutally murdered or forced into poverty and lingering death.  There is a potential for a human tragedy comparable to that of the World War Two to occur in South Africa in the next few years.


The Truth about Exploitation, Oppression and other allegations regarding Apartheid


1.    Were excesses

Yes, there were excesses, there were things that were, on the face of it, plain unreasonable BUT for the most part MOST of the allegations are totally baseless.


2.    Europeans worked extremely hard

The Europeans brought little physical with them but a body of diverse knowledge and experience and a well-established culture.  They built their houses, farms, businesses, towns, mines and industries from scratch.  They worked long hours and mobilized whatever resources were available to them.


3.    Europeans mostly settled where there were NO Africans

In many / most places where the Europeans settled there were NO African people – the Afrikaners in particular CHOSE it this way.  Furthermore, in huge areas of the country there were NO African people because there were NOT enough African people to populate all the land and the conditions were such that the African people did NOT have the technology, method or creative ability to master the environment.  The Africans concentrated in the areas of benign and favourable climate, vegetation and natural resources.


4.    African leaders were brutal and harsh

A few centuries ago many (most?) African leaders were harsh, brutal and unjust and ruled harshly and exploited their subjects (much as many African rulers do today).


5.    Africans voluntarily moved to European areas

African people migrated to areas of European settlement seeking the things that the Europeans could offer and the more benign living conditions.  They BARTERED their labour for food, clothing, shelter and other things – they were NOT slaves in the formal sense of the word.  Their European masters expended considerable effort training them because they lacked even the most basic skills and, as a consequence there was an expectation of extended service in order to produce a return on the investment in training.


6.    Many Africans were not productive

Some African workers learned rapidly and became valued servants but others were less productive, less honest and became a source of frustration to their employers – but it was virtually impossible to get rid of them because, having experienced the benefits of working for the Europeans it was very difficult for them to return to their previous environment and, when angered, they were prone to theft and violence – so the relationship was frequently strained.


7.    Europeans were busy surviving – no time to oppress

At the same time the Europeans were caught up in the day to day bustle of surviving and building and had limited time to engage with the African people in any meaningful way.  Furthermore, they had no common ground, no basis to justify major time or other investments in their African workers – no one had invested in them to that extent previously.

BUT they ALSO did not have the time, interest or resources to exploit or oppress the African peoples around them – many even refused to employ Africans as a consequence of bad experiences and built their farms and businesses solely on the sweat efforts of their families, and, in some cases, coloured workers.


8.    Some Europeans went out of their way to uplift

Some Europeans went out of their way to uplift their African workers with schooling, health care, etc – they were NOT under any obligation to do this.  They did this entirely at their OWN cost, including building the school and employing the teachers.


9.    Lie of oppression rooted in Dunning-Kruger effect

The lie of oppression and exploitation took root when some of these African people, who had been privileged to receive some education fell into the trap of the Dunning-Kruger syndrome and concluded that since they now had some of the white man’s knowledge and education they were now equal to the white man when, in reality there was major unconscious incompetence.  Sol Plaatje was one who was at the forefront of this arrogant ignorance and this has perpetuated in the ANC today.

This incompetence resulted in serious losses to Europeans and in destructive behaviour such that increasing numbers of Europeans distanced themselves from these Africans while these arrogant incompetents made more and more unreasonable demands and false accusations based on their limited understanding.  Out of these tensions both Apartheid and the ANC were born.

The reason South Africa has allegedly the greatest disparity between have’s and have not’s is because of the incompetence of the Africans and the extremely hard working nature of the Europeans – it is questionable whether this IS the country with the greatest extreme.


10. Other lies

It should be noted that reports that the strikers at Lonmin near Marikana were earning R4,000 per month are completely false.  Most of the were earning R10,000 to R12,000 per month BEFORE deductions such as Medical Aid, housing, repayments of debts to loan agents, etc.



In other words, the so-called abused and exploited miners are NOT abused and exploited at all – if anyone is exploiting them it is their people who sit back home in the rural areas and do NOTHING and wait for handouts  from the people on the mines.


There are a SUBSTANTIAL number of whites who earn the same or less than the above and manage to live respectable lives, rent apartments, drive cars, dress respectably, etc.


The problem is NOT what mine management are doing to “exploit” their workers it is AGAIN with African inadequacies.  The ANC and the  Unions do NOTHING to publicize the truth or to correct the lies and, again, international opinion turns against “exploitive whites” who are actually doing their best to run a sustainable mining operation under difficult conditions


It is further reported that despite higher than inflation wage increases in the mining sector over many years productivity is DROPPING.


Once more we see African falsehoods working to destroy the economy.


I suspect that you will find similar false statements in other sectors where wage disputes are occurring.

Erroneous thinking with regard to Majority Rule and how this impacted thinking regarding Apartheid

There is some fundamentally flawed thinking in terms of the South African Majority Rule mind-set.


1.    Europeans were the FIRST settlers in most areas where there are major towns and cities today with the possible exception of Durban and Richards Bay.  There were small Griqua and San populations but they were small relative to the European settlements that sprung up.  The San had been murdered by the Africans wherever they came into contact.


2.    The African people came to these areas because they wanted what the Europeans had, they were NOT forced, brought as slaves or prisoners or coerced in any way, they came VOLUNTARILY.


3.    They brought primitive ways of living and created primitive settlements because they knew NO OTHER WAY and did not readily learn from the Europeans how to create better settlements such that the Europeans frequently ended up building them dwellings.  The Europeans were living under very difficult circumstances and what they were able to give their workers was a reflection of this, NOT any hostile or exploitative mind-set.


4.     The African workers chose then and STILL choose to send substantial portions of their earnings back home to the rural areas because there were and ARE many who chose to remain at home and do nothing commercially productive and depend on those who are working.  This places huge strain on the workers and they then, perforce, live under primitive conditions – NOT because of the conduct of the Europeans but because of the laziness and culture of the Africans.


5.     Many of those who DID receive education from the Europeans demonstrated arrogant ignorance, just as we experience today.  They also demonstrated major cognitive analytical and problem solving and leadership gaps and frequently messed up tasks that they were given to do at substantial expense to their employers – just as is happening today.  In many cases Europeans became reluctant to employ these overconfident and dangerous Africans and so, “racial discrimination” was born.


6.     Democracy works when ALL or nearly all voters have a comparable economic stake in the costs of Government decisions and it cannot work where an effectively disenfranchised minority (Europeans, Asians and Coloureds) generate the bulk of the tax revenue only to have it squandered and inappropriately applied to the benefit of an idle majority by arrogant leaders who are unable to see their mistakes, let alone learn from them.


Again I have to say that, built on the above foundations, South Africa is headed for catastrophic economic collapse unless radical change occurs.

The concepts of Affirmative Action and Black Economic Empowerment are fundamental misnomers and a direct outflow of the false beliefs that triggered Apartheid in the first place

The entire concepts of “Affirmative” and “Empowerment” are fundamental misnomers:


1.     Europeans did all that they reasonably could to uplift Africans taking account of their heritage of NON-EXISTENT relevant culture, knowledge, education, methods – in fact all the building blocks of a modern economy – see “What the white man brought to South Africa”.


2.   In theory Europeans COULD have done more, but why should they?  They worked hard and made great sacrifices to build this economy.


3.    Europeans have given Africans South Africa on a plate and the Africans are progressively trashing it – why should Europeans FURTHER support this destruction by advancing Africans beyond their level of competence or giving them capital without commensurate intellectual value added?


4.    By all means encourage the appointment and development of competent African people BUT let us STOP using race and Apartheid as an excuse for incompetence and laziness.


5.    Black Economic Empowerment is also a false concept – there are large areas of the country that have never been materially occupied by Europeans – let Africans demonstrate their abilities in their own impoverished areas which bear mute testimony to their lack of even the most elementary ability to create an economy.  Let them build farms, mines, towns, roads, smart houses, factories, businesses, a stock exchange, etc THEMSELVES!


6.    All European imposed impediments to African advancement were removed more than 20 years and most 30 years ago – let them now demonstrate their ability by their own initiative and toil just like I and my forefathers did.

Overarching headlines a week after reading the book "Bulala" by Cuan Elgin -- towards a better understanding of black-white relations and Apartheid

BULALA means “kill” in Zulu -- particularly in the context of killing whites.

Subtitle – “A True Story of South Africa”.


The book may be obtained from Amazon at:

Cuan’s Facebook Group is located at

The following are the points which stood out for me a week after reading the book “Bulala” (which means “Kill” in Zulu) by Cuan Elgin (subtitled – A True Story of South Africa) – note, these points are NOT necessarily all in the book or explicitly made in the book – this is my interpretation of key points arising from reading the book in the context of questions I have been asking about the Afrikaner and Apartheid over the last couple of years.


1.    Afrikaners avoided blacks

Throughout the Trek the Afrikaners went out of their way to avoid blacks and to settle in uninhabited territory.  Apartheid – meaning separation – was simply a continuation of their attempts to live life without getting involved with blacks – the BIG issue with Apartheid relates to the aggression of the blacks and their insistence on moving into Afrikaner areas.


2.    Afrikaner experience of blacks was primitive and savage

The Afrikaner experience of blacks, right through to today with the farm murders, has been of primitive, barbaric, brutal, illiterate, treacherous savages responsible for unprovoked rapes, murders and assaults.  Piet Retief’s 70 men were impaled onto sharpened stakes thrust through their anuses while Retief was forced to watch and he was then beaten to death (skull smashed) with knobkerries AFTER signing a peace treaty.  For them, the conduct of the ANC today is NO different.


3.    Afrikaners have consistently sought to avoid conflict

The Afrikaners have consistently sought to avoid conflict and during the trek they repeatedly moved away when there was conflict and only killed in self-defence rather than the much larger scale killings that they COULD have perpetrated given their access to guns.


4.    Afrikaners have repeatedly been extremely harshly treated by the English

The Afrikaners have repeatedly been extremely badly treated by the English, from the events that led to them leaving the Cape to the imprisonment and death of tens of thousands of their women and children in concentration camps during the Second Anglo Boer War.


5.    The Afrikaners fell into the trap of using the Bible to defend their position

The Afrikaners fell into the trap of using the Bible to defend their position with regard to their views on blacks only to have liberal English Theologians apparently over-turn their arguments.  They used skin colour arguments where spiritual arguments should have been used.

They also failed to simply say “we do NOT like blacks, we do not trust them, they have brutally murdered our people and betrayed their agreements and we would prefer NOT to have them live around us” or words to that effect – there is much more that can be written about this aspect but which is outside the scope of this document.

The Afrikaners as a people are exceptionally bad in marketing themselves and defending themselves in public forums.


6.    The liberal English view does NOT accord with reality

BEFORE reading this book I was rapidly concluding that the liberal English view of blacks that I grew up with was invalid.  Reading the book confirmed this.  The wholesale conduct of the ANC and their Cadre Deployment and other massively economically destructive actions, not to mention the lack of any evidence to suggest that they regard the perverse, sadistic and atrocious farm murders with any concern leads me to conclude that the picture painted in the book (Bulala) is largely accurate.

President Jacob Zuma, the leadership of the ANC and thousands of delegates singing “the Cabinet will kill the Boer with machine guns” at the ANC Centenary Celebrations in Bloemfontein on Sunday 8th January forever removes any thought I might have that Cuan Elgin is mistaken. The level of treachery by the President of this country inherent in this  song finally laid to rest any willingness on my part to believe the best of him and the organization he leads.


7.    The Afrikaners as a whole are closer to the Almighty

I see distinctly from the book that the Afrikaner people, in the form of the Trekkers / Boers, were close to the Almighty.

It has been my personal experience in the last few years that there are more Afrikaners than English who are close to the Almighty.  The Almighty has said to me that there is a greater percentage of Afrikaners who are close to Him than any other people group in the world and for this reason the forces of darkness ARE constantly looking for opportunities to persecute them and steal from them – this is WHY the Afrikaners have suffered such extreme losses in the last few years.

Further thoughts after reading Bulala -- A TRUE Story of South Africa by Cuan Elgin -- towards better understanding Afrikaner's fear of blacks and how this drove Apartheid

This section presents a more detailed analysis written immediately after I completed reading the book – it was in confirming references in the book in Google at the time that I wrote these notes that I came across the video of Jacob Zuma leading tens of thousands in singing “the Cabinet will shoot the Boer with machine guns” and this strongly reinforced conclusions that I was drawing at that time which ultimately led to the writing of this book.


The context of these notes is from a Liberal English background opposed to Apartheid as set out elsewhere in this book.  I claim that I was led to purchase this book by the Almighty in specific response to prayer requesting guidance with regard to the REAL issues with regard to Apartheid.


1.    The African people of South Africa, throughout the period described in the book (up to 1900) were primitive savages who resorted regularly to gratuitous violence and rape of the most savage kind – thus I must conclude that my Liberal beliefs are fundamentally flawed and invalid.


2.    Bantu Africans only occupied certain limited areas of the present South Africa such as Transkei and Zululand, etc.  Afrikaners made NO attempt to settle in these areas or even move through them but sought to live peacefully in previously uninhabited areas which made up most of the country.


3.    It appears that the land areas set-aside for Africans under Apartheid correlated closely with the areas where blacks already lived and there was therefore limited relocation – it was a huge mistake on the part of the Nationalists NOT to consolidate these areas into practical contiguous blocks that were defendable in terms of psychological response to what was presented on  maps – it was the fragmented nature of land parcels that was one of the BIGGEST factors that gave Apartheid a bad name.  It certainly irritated me constantly when Afrikaners tried to justify it.



4.   The Afrikaners as a whole did NOT employ Africans in the early days and some do NOT even today, they brought coloured servants with them and did most of the work of building and operating their dwellings and farms themselves.


5.    Another huge mistake of Apartheid was lumping the Coloured, Indian and Chinese people with the Africans as “Non-White” thereby alienating them and causing a divide that saw those people forced to align themselves against the Europeans and provide intellectual and organizational capability to the ANC.


6.    British Liberalism – with which I grew up – was seriously misinformed and misplaced and has given rise to the present situation where people who are NOT qualified to run this economy have taken over and are in the process of undermining the foundations of what they received while instituting harsh anti-European racism.


7.    It is the consistent experience that Africans want what the European has and they have been prepared to kill, steal and lie to get it with no comprehension of the intellectual and sweat effort necessary to create and maintain it.


8.   While it IS apparent that the Bible WAS a source of great strength and importance to the Afrikaners they regrettably found themselves justifying their actions on the basis of a small number of verses that were totally discounted and ignored or interpreted totally differently by Liberal Christian English speakers so the end result was a conflict with regard to interpretations of the Bible.


9.    Reading the book Bulala reinforced my view that progressive economic and social collapse coupled to massive African South African population growth will result in a bloody revolution that will destroy virtually all Europeans, Asians, mixed race (Coloured) people and most non-South African Africans within twenty years.  The events at Marikana are a small taste of what is to come.


10.  I also concluded that the worship of the Almighty Creator has little or no relevance to the vast majority of African South Africans and that witchcraft and ancestor worship are the way of the future for South Africa.


11.  Afrikaners have suffered great losses at the hands of the Africans and the British and the modern losses can be directly correlated with the “struggle songs” such as “the Cabinet will shoot the Boer with machine guns” sung under Zuma’s direction at the ANC Centenary.  Notwithstanding this the Afrikaners are essentially peace loving.

Note that the ANC, again led by Zuma, sang “struggle songs” behind closed doors at the ANC Congress in Bloemfontein on Sunday 16th December 2012 after Zuma had delivered the opening address.  A snippet accidentally leaked by SABC News was “shoot the Boer”.  This was DESPITE the agreement signed in October 2012.

Lessons from Dingane versus Retief -- Treachery -- the Afrikaner experience of blacks that underpinned Apartheid = Separateness

A key aspect of my current understanding of the situation in South Africa and, particularly, the extreme murder rate of European (white) South Africans was informed by consideration of the murder of Piet Retief and his men by the Zulu king, Dingane. Remember that President Jacob Zuma is ALSO a Zulu:

1. The following account is taken from


The royal kraal was set on a gently sloping hillside bounded on two sides by two streams. The kraal was surrounded by a palisade fence over two miles in circumference and contained nearly 1500 huts, each capable of holding 20 warriors. The king’s hut was far bigger than the rest and located at the highest point of the kraal in an area known as the isigodlo – the area where he and his ninety wives lived.

Dingane at this time was in his forties and gaining some weight. He was still however capable of joining his warriors in dances and very light on his feet. He was also artistic and spent much time decorating his wives and even composing songs. Having several rotten front teeth, he would put his hand over his mouth when talking to hide them.

Having killed his half brother Shaka some nine years previously, he had come to the throne to end the bloodshed that had characterized Shaka’s reign of terror. Soon, however, he became paranoid and killed large numbers of his own subjects, either by sending out his top indunas (generals) to lay waste to some vassal chief who had offended him or by execution for such trifles as a comment or a cough or for some imagined slight. Those killed at Umgungundlovu were not executed in the kraal but dragged by the king’s execution squad to a nearby hill and either beaten to death with stones or knobkerries or impaled.


The hill of execution was located just across the stream that bounded the kraal and was known as kwaMatiwane (the place of Matiwane) from a local chief who had been executed there. Executions occurred almost every day with even the king’s wives and top generals not immune from being dragged off. Their remains were left for the vultures that eventually came to know when a trial was in progress and follow the condemned to the hill. Dingane referred to the vultures as ‘my children’ and ensured that they were kept well fed.

The Reverend Francis Owen who had been allowed to establish the mission was located slightly above kwaMatiwane and the royal kraal. Through his telescope, he could see and hear (and was outraged by) the daily executions. He parked one of his wagons between his house and kwaMatiwane to obscure the daily carnage. Every day he would walk across the valley to minister to the uncomprehending Dingane who was less interested in Christianity and more interested in lessons in musketry and the use of gunpowder. However, the reverend from Yorkshire did teach Dingane the art of painting.

Dingane and the White Man

Thus, Dingane’s reign of terror was every bit as vicious as that of his predecessor. Dingane was also fearful of the white man."

It is clear that unprovoked murder was a routine way of life and one cannot escape noticing some correlation between this description and the seemingly unprovoked murders of white farmers in South Africa that are occuring so regularly.

The following is taken from

"Retief Arrives at Umgungundlovu

The king kept the party waiting for several days with displays of dancing and mock battles, even asking them to display their abilities as horsemen in the great area in the centre of the kraal. Eventually however he signed a treaty (drawn up in English) ceding the land. The next day the Boers were to return joyfully to their party under the Drakensberg

1. The following account is taken from

“On that cloudless morning, Retief, after saddling up, was asked to report with his men and servants to the parade ground so that the king could wish them farewell. As a mark of respect they were asked to leave their guns outside.

“The Boers, seated on the ground were surrounded by a large group of dancers that performed a long dance, gradually moving away from and towards them. Dingane also joined in but at one point he stopped, raised his arm to absolute silence and shouted again and again ‘Bulalani abathagathi!’ – Kill the wizards!

“The Boers were immediately set upon, each by a dozen warriors and bound. One, who had a pocketknife, managed to dispatch a couple before he succumbed. The whole group, including the thirty servants was dragged, struggling, down the hill, across the stream and up to kwaMatiwane where they were clubbed or skewered to death. Retief was the last to die and had to witness the death of his comrades and of his son. After he was put to death, his heart and liver were removed and presented to the king.”

2. There is NO dispute that a treaty WAS signed – there were other Europeans present.

3. There is NO dispute amongst diverse sources that Dingane put Retief and his party to death.

4. There is NO dispute that most died an agonizing death with sharpened stakes thrust into their abdomens through their anuses. Some say that they were subsequently disembowelled while still alive.

5. Apologists for Dingane say they were killed because they offended against Tribal Customs and seem to suggest that Retief should have known better and that somehow it was his fault that over 10,000 armed men brutally killed 70 who had laid down their arms in good faith – symptomatic of a syndrome where from a Liberal perspective it is ALWAYS the white mans fault.

6. All agree that Dingane proclaimed them to be Wizards (Tagati).

7. Some Apologists for Dingane DENY the existence of a Peace Treaty made before the slaughter while Afrikaners claim that the document was found on Retief’s dehydrated corpse some time later – see below:

8. A key conclusion from this incident is that some (many?) Africans have NO qualms about breaking a treaty when it suits them and that, accordingly, Jacob Zuma leading his leaders and tens of thousands in singing “shoot the Boer” may reasonably be seen as a clear statement of intent – Zuma has, after all, descended from the same tribe as Dingaan and has, allegedly, vowed to “avenge Blood River”. So why should we doubt that this IS his intention?

Understanding the African Power-Fear Culture and its negative consequences for South Africa and how it contributed to Apartheid violence

1.    In order to understand the destructive behaviour of leaders throughout Africa, and in South Africa in particular, it is vital to understand the “Power-Fear” culture of Africa contrasted with the “Justice or Right-Wrong” culture of Europe – refer to the work of Blankenburgh and others on this topic.


2.    Power-Fear has two dynamics:

a.    Those who are one-down in a hierarchy submit out of fear of the consequences if they step out of line – they may appear to submit willingly but this is NOT necessarily so – accordingly they make good servants and workers most of the time; 

b.    Those who are one-up in a hierarchy exert authority by fear, domination, favour and, at some level fear their subordinates and therefore destroy any who appear to be a threat or who exercise excessive initiative or innovation.  Power-Fear easily explains Robert Mugabe and other African despots.


3.    Once one understands these dynamics African and South African history becomes amenable to understanding, as does the behaviour of the ANC over the last 100 years and the behaviour of President Zuma and his Government today.


4.    As long as African people are down they are generally submissive, cooperative and agreeable and will seldom answer back or argue – we experience them as “nice friendly people” – this is one of the huge dilemmas of Africa – Europeans experience them as nice and when they claim oppression, etc we believe them because they ARE such nice people and according to our paradigm nice people do NOT lie.


5.    Once an African sees him- or herself as being UP and in control a radical change takes place – they become aggressively assertive, unreasonable and DEMAND submission if they are of the opinion you are NOT giving it, whether their knowledge and experience, ability and aptitude earn them that esteem or not.


6.    An African on a peer level is frequently a confusing and schitzophrenic flip-flop mixture of assertiveness and submission making personal relationships difficult across cultural boundries.


7.   Once an African is in a dominant position – as with Robert Mugabe in Zimbabwe or Jacob Zuma – they command respect through fear and favour with no regard to ethics, integrity, justice or fair play – right and wrong have no place in their paradigm – either you are for them or against them and if you are a threat you will be removed.  Stories of Mugabe’s opponents meeting with strange motor vehicle accidents are quite common.  There is NO focus on the long term good of society but a self-centred greed based power hunger that dictates behaviour and so the leader who most effectively dominates the Europeans will win in a so-called democracy.  This is a major factor in the removal of President Mbeki as President (too Westernized) and the success of Zuma.


8.    The submission that results from Power-Fear is what causes Africans to hold that Europeans oppress and exploit them – they see that they have given submission grudgingly rather than accepting their responsibility to uplift themselves through their own initiative and effort.  Because they fear the Europeans, they claim that the Europeans are oppressing them.


9.    Justice, right-wrong, truth, integrity are foreign concepts in a Power-Fear culture.  The end justifies the means and lies and deception are acceptable means to achieve the ends of victory – such as Dingaan signing a peace treaty in order to get Piet Retief and his men to lay down their arms so they could be brutally slaughtered without loss of life on the part of Dingaan and his men.


10.  Power-Fear does NOT take prisoners.  The concepts of necessary force, respectful treatment of prisoners of war does NOT feature – losers deserve to die and it is totally contrary to Power-Fear to respect those stupid enough to hand over power voluntarily – they deserve to die.  Power-Fear kills losers in brutal and sadistic ways to send a clear message NOT to oppose the ruler, as in the case of Dingaan having Retief’s men impaled alive on sharpened stakes thrust through their rectums.  Is this the case with the murder and assault of farmers and other Europeans – to send a clear message NOT to oppose the ANC?  It seems possible.  How many of those who have died have, at some level, been foolish enough to express opposition to the ANC?  Eugene Terreblanche certainly died a perverse death for his opposition!.


11.  Note that the correct Power-Fear response to the ANC in earlier days would have been harsh and brutal public executions, not comfortable detention with the opportunity to plot revenge.


12.  Note also that to the extent that it DID occur, harsh Afrikaner treatment of Africans was, in fact, the appropriate Power-Fear response to resistance and insubordination.  In other words an appropriate and valid response by African standards although totally unacceptable by Liberal standards.

The African "Garden of Eden Mind-Set -- (Money Grows on Trees) and how this contributed to Apartheid

1.   One of the things that is noticeable about the conduct of the ANC is what I have termed “the Garden of Eden Mind-set” or, phrased differently “money grows on trees”.


2.    Central to this mind-set is very limited technical and creative ability and very little understanding of the intellectual processes that result in the creation of productive assets and wealth – if you examine their conduct closely it would seem that they believe that “things just happen”.


3.    They demand land but take productive farms and turn them into wastelands, consider the following before and after photographs of a farm in the Komatipoort district handed over to Africans.


     Before                                                                                  After 3 years of African occupation...

                                                                                                  Note the rubble where the roof, etc have been stripped out


4.    They do the same with mines – Google “Aurora mines South Africa” for horror stories of how productive assets were sold for scrap and productive mines destroyed while workers went without pay and millions were stolen by relatives of the ruling ANC elite with no significant legal or moral consequences.


5.    The same is happening with the South economy generally – the ANC have gained control and are raping the infrastructure and tax base for their own aggrandisement and enrichment to the detriment of the huge numbers who have lost jobs and who will lose jobs in the years to come.  Note that reports indicate that there are in excess of 300,000 Europeans who have been forced out of the economy in the past twenty years and who are living in poverty.  Some estimates place the figure at much higher.  They have been forced out by aggressive Affirmative action totally contrary to the Constitution, frequently in harsh and dishonest ways.


One can argue that the ANC do NOT know better but the entire African experience points to the sort of collapse that is taking place in South Africa and the entire African experience indicates that Africans appear to be intellectually incapable of associating the failures in the rest of Africa with what they are doing wrong here.  There is NO apparent indication of an understanding of “cause and effect” or the logical deduction required to identify a mistake and then turn away from repeating that mistake.  As I have grappled with the information that is contained in this book, I have repeatedly come across articles that suggest that people of African descent lack certain key deductive and analytical ability as a GENETIC weakness and, the more my Liberal upbringing struggles with this conclusion the more I have to say that, at the very least, African early childhood experience is generally devoid of this learning AND, given reports that this occurs amongst Africans in the United States of America, the more I have to suggest that there IS a possibility that at some level this may be genetic.  In this case the consistent murder of those who show initiative or competing leadership under a Power-Fear dispensation that has propagated for centuries suggests a possible devolutionary (evolutionary degradation) model for such deficiencies to be genetic.  With perhaps only a “royal elite” may at some level retaining this genetic element.

African Greed versus European Prudence -- another driver behind the institution of Statutory Apartheid

One of the other problems of Africa is greed – taking and demanding more than has been earned.  One of the reasons there is so much poverty in Africa is because of the greed and dishonesty of the rulers.


This contrasts with a trait of most Europeans which is prudence – the careful use of money.  In the days of European rule the politicians and government officials at ALL levels, lived prudently, earned moderate salaries, lived in moderate homes and drove moderate cars.  They invested whatever surplus resulted in growing their assets, their businesses, their institutions, their country.  All of this stored wealth resulting from decades of cautious and prudent investing by Europeans has been raped by Africans in the last fifteen years or so.

Understanding versus Rote Learning -- a key factor in "Bantu Education" and integral to Apartheid

A fundamental characteristic of European life and European culture, particularly amongst the more highly educated who are behind the generation of wealth and success, is to seek understanding.  If one understands how things work one can improve them. 

This contrasts with the rote learning that characterizes a large number of Africans where there highly retentive memories learn things easily in many cases but, because of a lack of understanding, they are unable to adapt that information to situations which do NOT exactly correlate to their remembered model.

African Asset Obsession and preocupation with other things that are NOT wealth -- another element of Apartheid misunderstanding

 African asset obsession has other dimensions:

1.   Possession of farms, mines, soccer stadiums, fancy hospital buildings, etc are regarded as wealth even though the soccer stadiums in particular represented a huge economic drain and most of them are far from profitable.


2.    This asset obsession is completely removed from wealth being the earning capacity of well operated productive assets.


3.  This results in completely inappropriate expenditure, such as the soccer stadiums that will never pay for themselves, extravagant cars that deteriorate, other structures that cannot generate productive returns.


4.    There is a complete lack of appreciation for finance as a tool for wealth creation.


5.  There is a complete lack of comprehension for the fundamentals of economics – productive assets and productive people generate returns and create employment and wealth – there is a preoccupation with “things”.


6.    Complete disregard for job creation – lip service is paid but, as discussed throughout this book, innumerable actions are destroying jobs.  Municipalities, Provinces and Government agencies buy and unproductively deploy yellow plant (earth moving machines) thereby promoting one operator at the expense of potentially dozens of labourers who then sit at home doing nothing except draw government grants and drain the economy – so the economy takes a double whammy.


7.    A total lack of appreciation for the value of intellectual property, experience and productive human capital – they regard a Matric Certificate or University Degree Certificate as valuable as a “thing” not as a token of hard earned high value knowledge sitting in the head of the owner of the Certificate.  They value the certificate, no matter how they get it, NOT the knowledge.

Different Definitions of Wealth between Black and White -- another source of friction that gave rise to Apartheid

The above points point to the conflicting definitions of wealth that exist:

1.    This is another fundamental difference between Africans and Europeans – the definition of wealth.


2.   Africans regard possession of assets as wealth – cattle no matter how undernourished and weak – it is quantum that counts – farms / land even though the productive capacity has been destroyed, mines ditto, fancy hospitals even though there are no doctors or nurses to staff them and no funds to equip them and no administrators to run them – there is a greed for ownership of stuff no matter the consequences.


3.   Africans value quantum of people no matter how badly nourished, badly educated, demotivated and unproductive they are – it is headcount that matters and so the ANC expends R35 billion on child support grants that stimulate the production of more illiterate and unproductive people.


4.    In contrast, Europeans regard productive assets and productive people and the outputs of these assets and people as wealth and seek to nurture, maintain and develop the assets and the people.  They are ALSO cautious about expenditure on assets and procreation of people.


5.    This fundamental conflict is another factor that is progressively crippling the South African economy – productive assets are being destroyed and productive people are being driven out.


6.    Note the statistic that only 2% of Europeans know how to create wealth and 12% know how to support those who know how to create wealth to create and sustain wealth creating activities.  The rest of the population benefit but have no comprehension of how the wealth is created.  Failure to recognize this is one of the biggest failings of Liberalism, Socialism, Communism and the ANC.  As far as I can see, in South African black society, and specifically the ANC, it is highly debatable as to whether any Africans fall into the first category (wealth creators) and, increasingly, I am unsure how many fall into the second category (wealth sustainers).  In fact, in South Africa it seems to me that we have a fourth category, that of WEALTH DESTROYERS, and it seems that the vast majority of the ANC leadership, their Cadres and their Affirmative Action appointees fall into this category – they THINK they know how to create wealth but their definition of wealth is things and  money in their personal bank accounts and children in their homes and, in the process of accumulating this “wealth”, they are destroying the capacity of the economy to create REAL WEALTH – a surplus of finances over the cost of generating the finances.


7.    Wealth is the output of an attitude, a state of mind – an intuitive synthesis of key stimuli and inputs in early childhood that enables and equips the person with that knowledge, experience and aptitude to identify opportunities and pursue them profitably.  There is NO indication that the leadership of the ANC have any comprehension of this concept.

The 2%:12%:86% Wealth Creation Phenomenon Amongst Europeans and its dramatic absence in Africans -- exacerbated by Wealth Destruction -- ANOTHER reason why whites wanted separateness from blacks


1.    2% “wealth creators / initiators”; 12% “wealth developers and maintainers”; 86% “economically ignorant”; close to 0% wealth destroyers – these factors apply ONLY the European society and NOT African society.


2.    Ratio for Africans could be 0.1%:1.9%:44%:54% -- throughout Africa there is almost NO evidence of innate ability to create wealth other than by syphoning off aid, productive outputs, etc with bribes, fraud, patronage and outright theft and great capacity to destroy wealth as is now happening in South Africa.


3.    In South Africa at this time it is predominantly the 2% of wealth initiators and 12% of wealth supporters who have left the country because they have the innate knowledge, experience, aptitude, insight and creativity to create wealth wherever they are.  This alone has set the South African economy on a slippery slope.


4.    There are STILL some of the latter category but they are leaving fast and will continue to leave at an accelerating rate in the years ahead.


5.    In this group are those who know how to run large corporations and these people have also, for the most part, prepared their life-rafts and have ways of leaving rapidly if the need arises.  Note that there are only a very small number in this category and they deserve their large salaries – Arrogant Ignorance attacks on their earnings are completely unwarranted and guaranteed to cause these people to get out if they continue.  There is no basis to conclude that these attacks will cease.


6.    Those in the “economically ignorant” category who are able to leave because of access to other citizenship or marketable knowledge and experience will also leave at an accelerating pace.


7.   It is a fundamental requirement for a thriving economy, an economy that is growing and creating more employment than population growth that the economy should be led by members of the 2% of wealth creators and 12% of wealth developers and maintainers.  Inherently these people should be retained at ALL COSTS and yet the ANC seems to delight in making South Africa as unattractive as it possibly can to these people thus driving them off to other countries who welcome them with open arms.


8.    There is little evidence that the hard core ANC contains ANY of the 2% wealth creator component and it seems that they hardly have any in the 12% wealth developer and maintainer component – I do NOT consider that Cyril Ramaphosa falls into either of these categories except in a perverse African way.


9.    There is considerable evidence that the ANC and its Cadres, BEE and communist associates have massive capacity in the field of wealth destruction.


10.  Focus on the workers at the expense of those who create wealth is a recipe for disaster – they are poor because they do NOT know how to create wealth and, given that most Africans have a remarkable capacity to dissipate and destroy things, this massive feed into unproductive consumption is guaranteed to cripple the economy.


11.  Jacob Zuma and his direct reports evidence NO ability to create wealth, only to amass their own private fortunes through self-aggrandisement, exploitation of their positions of privilege and rape of the economy.

What is the PURPOSE of Government? -- another dramatic difference between Africans and Europeans that it is necessary to understand in order to understand Apartheid

1.  Government exists to do what individuals CANNOT do – Governments are the agents, the SERVANTS (remember “the Civil Service”?) of the people in a democratic state – something the Zuma ANC and most African people do not understand.


2.    Provide justice, policing, prisons and defence.


3.     Legislation and policies that are conducive to peaceful and successful commercial endeavour.


4.    Provide national infrastructure that WORKS and facilitates effective social operation – roads, railways, water supply, electricity supply – in working order in IN SERVICE of society.


5.   Look after the high level requirements for the wellbeing of the entire population – hygiene, clean water in adequate quantity, sewerage, health care (for the poor) and related SERVICES and, to LIMITED extent, where private enterprise cannot do this.


6.    Education – Primary, Secondary and Tertiary education – Universities, Technical Colleges, Teacher Training Colleges, etc – to make this affordable to as many people as possible.


7.    Facilitate Arts and Culture.


8.    Government should be a FACILITATOR of prosperity – the ANC do NOT give any indication that they understand this – they draw huge salaries, engage in graft and HINDER the economy to a point where it is now facing collapse.


9.  In a TRUE democracy (which we NO longer have) Parliament is filled by men and women who have considerable knowledge and experience and who have demonstrated their OWN ability to sustain themselves in Politics.  This collective knowledge and experience (or wisdom) enables them to guide a country to a high value outcome.  To the extent that these principles are violated prosperity is destroyed.  Note that excessive socialistic, communistic and liberal thinking ALL damage economies by focussing on the WRONG things.

What IS Democracy? AND what is it NOT? -- vital to understanding what Apartheid WAS and was NOT

The ANC constantly refers to “Democracy” but what IS it and do WE have it?

1.    Universal suffrage in a society in which the level of education and financial contribution is roughly uniform so that the voters pay for what they vote for – missing in South Africa – the people who pay the taxes are effectively a disenfranchised minority while the voters elect people who steal the tax money or use it for completely inappropriate purposes that hinder future tax revenue generation. 

2.    Universal respect for the law and support for the maintenance of law and order.  Totally missing in South Africa insofar as murder, rape and assault are concerned.  It increasingly seems that opponents of the ANC may die mysteriously and the South African Police Service and Courts are so ineffective (or deliberately obstructive?) that murderers have nothing to fear.  Singing “the Cabinet will shoot the Boer with machine guns” shows total disregard for the law and gives a clear message to all black Police, Magistrates, etc.

3.    Universal respect for the rights of others was present in the Old South Africa to a reasonable extent with some limitations.  It is increasingly missing today.  I seriously question whether I truly have the right to stand on a soap-box in the middle of a South African city and say what I have said in this book without some nasty consequence, if nothing more than arrest and harsh treatment but quite possibly a brutal death together with my loved ones – writing and publishing this book is, for me, a deeply considered moral choice with very serious consideration of the risk I am taking.

4.   Democracy is NOT a winner takes all and destroys what the losers have built up situation, as we are increasingly experiencing in South Africa.

5.    Democracy is NOT a screen to hide behind while introducing extreme Communism, as is happening in South Africa.

6.   Democracy is NOT a screen to hide behind will introducing harsh tribalism, as increasingly seems to be happening here.

7.    Democracy includes the freedom to express contrary opinions and to criticise.  Consider the ANC’s response to the painting of Zuma “The Spear”.  While I think the painting WAS in BAD taste the reaction of the ANC and the level of threats was totally contrary to what I understand Democracy to entail.

8.    The ANC exploited Democracy to secure control and are now systematically destroying Democracy.

The Manifest Cognitive and Deductive Deficiency in Africans -- defective cause and effect reasoning -- encourages Europeans to seek separateness (Apartheid)


1.   The basic problems facing South Africa today have, at some level manifested throughout Africa and continue to manifest.


2.    The fundamental lie of “Colonial Oppression” is a universal tenet of African thinking even though this book clearly demonstrates that it is invalid.


3.    The current ANC Government of South Africa, coming off a much higher economic and industrial base than the rest of Africa, is hell bent on doing the same things that have been done in the rest of Africa and yet genuinely seem to expect a different result ignoring the truism that “if you do what you always did you will get what you always got” or, in other terms “insanity is doing the same thing and expecting a different result”.


4.     The repercussions of rapidly accelerating BEE (Black Economic Empowerment), Cadre Deployment and Affirmative Action are widely evident in terms of irreversible economic damage and yet the ANC, at its conference in December 2012, opts for more of the same with greater impetus.


5.    Compounding this situation, most Europeans, while at some level disaffected and worried, seem unable to comprehend the enormity of what is happening and unable to hear those who CAN see what is happening – hence this book.


6.    And so, we have to confront the harsh reality that it really DOES appear that African people are unable to learn from the mistakes of their peers and are NOT even able to recognize them as mistakes despite hugely manifest human suffering, deprivation and loss of life, which seems to leave them totally unmoved except when appealing to the rest of the world for donations.


7.    Widely rejected USA experience – refer Rushton and Jensen at:

and others suggests that there ARE genetic, that is inherited, differences in Intelligence Quotient and Cognitive Reasoning between Europeans and Africans.



8.    Coupling the previous points to the USA findings has to lead a rational and objective thinker to conclude that there ARE genetic differences with regard to cognitive, deductive, cause and effect reasoning and initiative in most people of African descent such that the upper bounds of ability in these areas in Africans correlate with a substantially lower level of ability in Europeans.  Perhaps with limited exceptions.


9.   Taking this into account one can link an evolutionary selection process linked to Power-Fear resulting in all challengers and questioners of the “king” being brutally murdered such that there is a basis to suggest that the African people of South Africa and, particularly the leaders of the ANC, are unable to see the damage they are doing and even LESS able to correlate that damage to what they are doing, hence the stock answer “Apartheid”.  This may also partially explain the high rate of white murders – are the hit men out there who murder whites who “get out of line” at the behest of ANC leaders?

Incorrect beliefs of Liberal, Christian Europeans -- foundational impacts towards Apartheid


1.    Primarily British liberals?


2.    All men created equal, equal capability, primitive origins an unfortunate twist of fate or similar.


3.    Limited missionary or church influence is sufficient to override genetics, spiritual, early childhood and cultural negative factors.


4.    Lack of understanding of Arrogant-Ignorance – probably say it does NOT exist (many liberals are prone to this as well and so do NOT see it that easily in others)


5.    Lack of understanding of Power-Fear – probably say it does NOT exist.


6.    Belief in religious conversion at a nominal level IF they consider this relevant at all – since many Liberals are Agnostic or Atheist and some see themselves as Spiritists who are closer to Africans than to Europeans.


7.    Limited education is sufficient – make allowance for poor grades.


8.    Lack of understanding of early childhood impacts and absolutely no attempt to compensate for gaps.


9.    The actions of these British Liberal Christians and other Liberals with Africans against the Afrikaner Europeans greatly strengthened the ANC and African hunger to overthrow the Europeans in South Africa and greatly weakened South African European unity.


10.  Some level of almost Xenophobic dislike / distrust of Afrikaners by British, especially Liberals (guilty myself).


11.  Some sort of guilt complex, particularly by British Liberal Christian Europeans towards Africans, that somehow the lack of Africans is a consequence of our actions rather than the consequence of African lack of ability.


These factors together greatly strengthened the ANC and weakened the South African European negotiating position in the years leading up to the regime change in 1994.

Liberalism -- Seriously Clouding the Issues and radically falsely defining Apartheid


1.    As with Communism white Christian liberalism, fuelled by “all men are created equal” thinking has glossed over and ignored clearly visible evidence of highly negative cultural and genetic short comings in African make-up.


2.    This has been compounded by a naïve belief that a few prayers and some level of simplistic teaching make this equality real and tenable.


3.    Having grown up as a Liberal with Liberal Christian Schooling and values one of the greatest challenges I have faced in writing this book has been to accept that my research, inquiry, analysis and prayer have progressively shown massive short comings in the knowledge and experience base of Africans that make the direction that South Africa has taken guaranteed to result in a savage genocidal bloodbath of epic proportions.


4.    I have been forced to accept that a body of people who chose as a leader a man who prances around in animal skins waving traditional weapons, consulting witchdoctors, offers sacrifices to the ancestors, advocates a return to African culture and leads tens of thousands of his followers, including his leadership Cadre, in singing “the Cabinet will shoot the Boer with machine guns” and who has “no formal education” and limited literacy has every intention of leading his people back to primitive savagery and that a substantial majority of the population regard that as desirable and appropriate.  Alternatively he is an extremely unwise person who thinks he can trash everything and still have the benefits of a first world industrial economy.



5.    Liberalism PREVENTED me from seeing this until very recently and is still preventing  possibly the majority of the South African European population from recognizing what is happening and causing them to reject those who HAVE realized what is happening.


6.    It is TIME for those who embrace Liberalism to remove the scales from their eyes and take account of what they have in LARGE measure created and take corrective action BEFORE it is too late, if we are NOT already past that point.

The African Victim Drama and the Liberal European Rescue Drama Dynamic -- vicious opposition to Apartheid

1.    In Psychology there are a number of forms of dramatic behaviour.  Two of these are known respectively as the “Victim Drama” in which the person plays for sympathy and support, and the “Rescue Drama” in which the person takes the role of giving sympathy and support – effectively a “knight on a white charger” behaviour.  Both of these behaviours are destructive BUT they occur frequently in paired association with a person with a well-developed Victim Drama forming a strong relationship with someone with a well-developed Rescue Drama.


2.    In the African – European Dynamic we see these roles extremely well developed.


3.   Because they lack the analytical skills to solve their problems Africans easily fall into a Victim Drama – something we see constantly in Africa – from the beggar on the street corner to the National President begging the European Union for Aid.  “But Apartheid” is a classic Victim Drama used widely in South Africa.


4.    Europeans, because of their greater wealth and strong position in the world fall readily into a Rescue Drama and so we see a highly effective dipole relationship between Africa, in Victim mode, and Europe, in Rescue mode, that plays out constantly.


5.   Add to this the fact the Europeans believe the best and do NOT understand Power-Fear and we find that Europeans are very gullible to African tales of woe, a fact that Africans are VERY good at exploiting.


6.    The ONLY answer to a Victim-Rescue Drama interaction is tough love – the concept of “no, I will NOT give you more aid” and “no, YOU are responsible for this mess, you got yourself into it now YOU get yourself out of it”.  Until Europeans, as the givers of largesse take a stand against the African Victim Drama the sorry saga of African poverty will continue.


7.    In a more specific context, in South Africa, until Europeans stop operating off the back foot and giving and giving while Africans despoil the economy, nothing is going to change.  The only problem is that Power-Fear then kicks in to hurt and kill the Europeans with primitive savagery so that they will NOT withhold their largesse.


8.    From where I sit this Psychological dynamic is so toxic that I cannot see a way out other than Europeans ALL getting out of the country and leaving the Africans to the mess they are creating for themselves.

What South African Europeans do Instinctively to Accommodate Africans and why so many lies were believed about Apartheid

On reflection it seems to me that most whites do the following with regard to their black servants and have carried much of this tolerance into dealing with the ANC Government, BEE shareholders, Cadres and AA appointees.

1.    Most of us tolerate stupid mistakes and explain nicely what to do – some lose their tempers but they are the minority – those of us who grew up here have been doing this all the way up to Jacob Zuma.


2.    Coach, anticipate things they do not know and help them avoid mistakes.


3.    Tolerate low productivity or work alongside them to energize productivity.


4.    Help them out with cash when they have domestic problems and do NOT expect to be paid back.


5.    Give them time for their domestic problems over and above the leave due to them and do NOT expect it to be recovered.


6.   Give them clothes, furniture, appliances that we no longer need BEFORE they are worn out in order to help them.


7.    Treat them well because that IS how we are but, secretly, we also know they can resort to crime or violence if we alienate them so we handle them with kid-gloves.


8.    Employ more than we actually need because we feel sorry for them – South Africa carries massive overhead in under-productive black staff in just about every sector.


Now our good treatment is coming back to bite us as the ANC and, by definition, the vast majority of the black population, take advantage of our generosity and rape the economy to destruction while actively seeking to drive us out with no concern for whether or not they bankrupt us in the process.

Afrikaner Racial Hostility, Distrust, Fear and Arrogance -- Truth with BAD ATTITUDE -- the downfall of Separateness (= Apartheid)

1.    As I have indicated previously, Apartheid in the pure form of separation of races as a practical statement of how Afrikaners chose to live their lives from the beginning, was NOT intended to be evil or repressive.


2.    Furthermore, under Apartheid the National Party Government invested hugely in schools, houses, towns and infrastructure around the country to develop and uplift the African peoples.


3.   However, by institutionalizing this in legislation after World War 2 had sensitized an entire global European generation against anything that even hinted of being a follow-on to the thinking of the Third Reich that gave rise to World War 2 and the Holocaust the Afrikaner voluntarily consigned themselves to global PARIAH status.


4.    This was seriously compounded by some Afrikaners of German origin whose hatred of the British, still fresh from the genocide of the Second Anglo-Boer War, chose to align themselves with Nazism and the Third Reich.



5.    These and other Afrikaners nurtured bitterness towards the African people of South Africa as a consequence of atrocities pre-dating the atrocities with regard to Piet Retief and with regard to many other incidents of African barbarism.  This manifested in grossly bad treatment of African people by a small but significant number of Afrikaner people which was ALSO total anathema to the global European community after World War 2.


6.    This was compounded by an extreme racial pride that the Afrikaners developed and by the ignorance that often accompanies and fuels such arrogance.  This had Afrikaners misquoting the Bible and other sources to “prove” that Africans were NOT human when a literal interpretation of Genesis had to be taken as proving that Africans were ALSO descended from Noah.

Others claimed that Africans were close to apes in an evolutionary model – another highly alienating and FALSE claim.

This in time alienated a very substantial number of people of European descent globally as well as in South Africa and drove a wedge between the Afrikaners and other Europeans who might otherwise have been allies.


7.  The Pass Laws, forced removals, racial segregation of facilities all provided grist to the mill which led to Afrikaners being increasingly isolated, separateness (Apartheid) being increasingly discredited and despised and finally, achieved the exact thing that they were trying to prevent by giving the ANC such credibility and prestige internationally that the Afrikaner was forced to hand South Africa to those he most hated, black, Bantu, South African Africans.


8.   A significant element of what drove Apartheid was based on FEAR consequent on the repeated barbaric encounters with Africans that saw individuals and groups brutally murdered.  That fear, as fear so often does, drove behaviour which provoked in others exactly what WAS feared.  A case of “that which I most feared has come upon me” (Job 3:25).


9.    Thus it was in a significant way that the bad attitude and bad decisions of the Afrikaner people paved the way for what we have today.

The Afrikaner Paradox -- Blessed but Persecuted -- why Apartheid was doomed to fail


1.    The European people who came to South Africa in the early days and who merged to form the Afrikaner (Boer) grouping were largely refugees from religious persecution in Europe – they came to South Africa and prospered.


2.    They felt persecuted by the British and left the Cape in the “Great Trek” (or Exodus).  They suffered huge losses, particularly at the hands of the Zulus but survived and prospered with much hard work and industry.


3.   They again came into conflict with the British and lost over 24,000 women and children through deaths in Concentration Camps and also lost many men in the Second Anglo-Boer War.  But, again, they re-established themselves and prospered, again with much hard work.


4.    They instituted Apartheid and were ultimately defeated by international public opinion and conceded control of South Africa to the ANC with a robust Constitution protecting human rights and high expectations.  In some respects they have prospered, in main-stream commerce and industry, but, as we have seen in previous sections, they are suffering massive losses through murder, rape and assault and many are unemployed as a consequence of aggressive Affirmative Action.


5.    Many have left the country but many are trapped, either because all their assets are locked up in South Africa or because they do not have the skills or resources to immigrate.


6.    So we see alternating cycles of blessing and cursing – WHY is this?


7.    Many Afrikaners are close to the Almighty, He says that in percentage terms there are MORE Afrikaners who are seeking to serve Him than in any other population group on earth and therefore He blesses them.


8.    But, they are also cursed because Satan hates them BECAUSE they are close to the Almighty and the forces of darkness use every possible opportunity to destroy them.  Satan can ONLY attack them where there is sin and there IS sin.


9.    Satan finds three areas in which there are major legal rights for Judgment and therefore attack:


a.     The sins of the European peoples.


b.     The sins of Christianity.


c.    Specific Afrikaner sins, touched on in the section “Afrikaner Racial Hostility, Fear and Arrogance – Truth with Wrong Attitude”


These three areas have provided fertile ground for spiritually motivated attack ever since the Afrikaners arrived in South Africa as their constituent groups.  There is another document on the website which discusses the spiritual response to the situation in detail.


10.  The ONLY hope for the Afrikaners if they are to survive as a nation is massive repentance, dealing with their wrong beliefs and wrong attitudes and turning to the Almighty in GREAT numbers in prayer and supplication and in fasting.  Remember that it is written “love your enemies and do good for them that hate you”.  This does NOT mean not defending oneself but it DOES mean not taking vengeful action.

Why did the ANC ONLY really start to have an impact from the early 1950's? -- statutory Apartheids forseeable unforseen consequence

Somebody asked me a few weeks ago why the ANC really only started to have an impact in the 1950’s given they existed since 1912.  This is my response:

1.    African people in general have little ability to meaningfully organize with few exceptions 

2.   Originally the ANC was “tilting at Windmills” – most of what they claimed only existed as figments of their imagination through “arrogant ignorance” – the Dunning-Kruger effect.

3.   Statutory Apartheid in the aftermath of the German Holocaust was totally unacceptable and garnered huge revulsion from Europeans around the world and huge support for the ANC.

4.    Statutory Apartheid alienated Asians (particularly Indians) and people of Mixed Race (Coloureds) and forced them to align with the ANC which they would probably NOT have done otherwise as there is no love lost between most of them and the African people.  Many Indians are EXTREMELY critical of Africans.

5.    The rise of African Americans in the USA gave the ANC hope and support and powerful people in the USA to assist them – note that many “Black Americans” would be coloured by our standards.

6.    Resurgence of Liberal thinking in Europe and the USA after World War 2, which has always tended to favour blacks.

7.    Increased favour towards the Theory of Evolution that saw South Africa viewed as “The Cradle of Humankind” and South African Africans therefore somehow have some special status.

8.    Shocking public relations by the Afrikaner people – refer section on this topic.

9.    Rise of global Communist aspirations, particularly in the USSR, Cuba and China who saw the ANC as a useful ally against a pro-Western country with rich resources and therefore strongly supported the ANC – the “war” in the 1970’s and 1980’s was NEVER against the ANC in material form, they were a Paper-Tiger, the war was against the Communist forces, particularly the Russians and Cubans in Angola.

10.  But it was statutory Apartheid more than anything else that provided the ANC with support and credibility.

Why South Africa could NOT have grown much more before 1980 -- Apartheid actually achieved close to maximum production

1.    Began off a close to zero base in 1880.


2.    Always far more Africans than Europeans, of the order of 10 to 1.


3.    Africans are incapable of creating wealth and prosperity in their own right – as evidenced throughout Africa and, on the contary, have substantial ability to DESTROY wealth – particularly those with some education.  They are a massive entrepreneurial deadweight.


4.    The Anglo-Boer War did massive damage to the economy, particularly the farming economy.


5.    World Wars 1 and 2 set-back global growth significantly.


6.   Post World War 2 there was dramatic growth within the constraints of the South African European economically active population who were carrying the deadweight of the entrepreneurially ineffective African population and building infrastructure for them.


7.   The massive imbalance of Africans to Europeans (currently 10 to 1) meant that African education could ONLY progress slowly.


8.    It was only in the early 1980’s that there was a real economic surplus in South Africa and this was dampened by sanctions and, to some extent, Apartheid.  This created massive strategic momentum that we are STILL benefiting from today although this momentum is rapidly being dissipated.


9.    The lifting of sanctions in the 1990’s, coupled to goodwill investment inflows, stimulated the bubble we have today that is on the point of bursting.

White Unemployment in South Africa is escalating rapidly as a direct consequence of harsh and aggressive Affirmative Action and Cadre Deployment by the ANC as a direct and inappropriate reaction to Apartheid

White unemployment as a consequence of harsh Cadre Deployment and Affirmative Action driven by ANC demands is driving more and more whites into unemployment

A recent estimate places the quantum of unemployed whites at about 760,000 which is about 17% of the current white population

These people have largely been replaced by incompetent individuals who are doing great harm to the economy

This page will be researched and populated as time permits





So -- What WAS Apartheid? -- REALLY? -- A Crime against humanity? -- or a desperate defensive measure that went horribly wrong?

Some months ago, as I sifted through the increasingly outrageous anti-white talk and writing that has been emanating from blacks in South Africa in general and those aligned with the ANC in particular, I started to question my belief-set about Apartheid.


For example blacks are claiming that their lack of education and lack of wealth is as a consequence of Apartheid BUT they NEVER had any of these things in the first place.  Late in 2011, in response to public anti-white statements, I undertook an analysis of what the white man DID bring to South Africa and what the black man did NOT have.  The bottom line was that the black man had a most primitive existence with no significant technology other than some primitive metal working capability and the ability to build grass and mud huts YET the ANC, right up to President Zuma are blaming the whites and Apartheid for everything that is wrong in South Africa.  Refer separate section on “What the white man brought to South Africa”.


Eventually I asked our Heavenly Father to show me the truth about Apartheid – He led me to purchase the book “Bulala – A True Story of South Africa” which I read a few weeks ago.  It confirmed much of what I was suspecting and took it further.  My direct impressions are summarized in the document “Key impressions after reading Bulala by Cuan Elgin”.


This document summarizes my current understanding that Apartheid REALLY was NOT what the ANC and liberals claim it was – note that once I WAS a liberal so I know their views well:


1.           The Afrikaners have as much right to the land as the Bantu (blacks)

The people who became the Afrikaners arrived in the Cape (South) as the Bantu (black) tribes moved in from the North.  The Bantu occupied areas of land where there was perennial water and an easy way of life.  The Afrikaners trekked into the areas that were NOT inhabited.  On both counts the Afrikaners have JUST AS MUCH claim to the land as the Bantu do.


2.    Afrikaners ALWAYS shunned blacks

Afrikaners always shunned blacks and kept themselves separate.  Many did NOT employ blacks at all in the early days and did all the work themselves – separateness – called “Apartheid” was a logical extension of this separation – they wanted nothing to do with blacks.


3.     Afrikaners experienced blacks as primitive savages

The Afrikaner experience of blacks was consistently that they were primitive, illiterate, savage, treacherous pagans who committed murder without provocation, killed and mutilated people in the most horrible ways and who stole whenever the opportunity presented itself and practised Ancestor worship and witchcraft.


4.    Afrikaners sought out uninhabited land

The Afrikaners consistently sought out uninhabited land of which there was plenty – the Bantu population was small and because of their lack of even the most basic technologies they ONLY lived where they could manage to live comfortably whereas the Afrikaners with their much more advance technology, wide diversity of methods and resources, were able to exist on land that the blacks were unable to exist on.  This remains the case today.  Vast areas of land support only isolated white farmers who work extremely hard to make a meagre living for themselves on hostile and barren land and on which blacks quite possibly never set foot because they lacked the technology to even transit the distances involved without water.



Notice that blacks are dominant in about 60% of the country and Coloureds in about 40% with limited pockets where whites are dominant.  This illustrates the total falsehood of some of the statements made by the ANC about land occupancy.

Note that in many areas whites operate farms but employ many more workers so that they are the minority in the vast majority of areas.



This map evidences the VERY low population density in most of South Africa – clearly there is MASSES of space in under developed areas that are occupied by whites on a very low density basis that COULD be developed by blacks – BUT they do NOT want the land where they have to work hard.

Notice also that the population concentration virtually all correlate with concentrations of white settlement evidencing the point that blacks flock to where the whites are, the whites do NOT drive the blacks out.


5.     Afrikaners were consistently peace loving

The Afrikaners were peace loving – they only killed in self-defence – even at the Battle of Blood River they were DEFENDING themselves.  They had the technology to have gone in and wiped out the blacks but they did NOT.


6.    Apartheid simply means separateness

As noted above, Apartheid simply means separateness – note that separateness is a biblical concept – the word translated “Holy” actually means “set-apart” in Hebrew.

The Afrikaners interpreted it as a biblical injunction to live separately from blacks.  The problem has fundamentally NOT been the white man – it has been the black man seeking to steal what the white man has sweated to create – a problem that continues today and a battle which the blacks, in the form of the ANC and their Cadres, are winning hands-down at the moment.

The whole concept of “Colonial Oppression” is false – the blacks have ALWAYS outnumbered the whites in large numbers and could EASILY have defeated the whites IF they had had the courage and organizational leadership to undertake the battles.  The blacks had next to nothing and, instead of seeking to coexist peacefully with their more advanced neighbours they have resorted to theft, violence and trumped-up charges.


7.    Afrikaners built schools, roads, towns, houses, etc for blacks during Apartheid

Afrikaners, during Apartheid, built schools, roads, towns, houses for blacks – I personally saw them – ALL OVER the country!  All of this was done to try and uplift blacks and SOME blacks WERE uplifted but most distained what they were given because of greed, avarice and Arrogant Ignorance and actively sought to steal from the whites through false claims of oppression, etc, etc.

The very genesis of the ANC is in seeking to take from the whites what the blacks were incapable of creating themselves.  The reason there are squatter camps and informal shanty towns and desolate rural villages is because blacks are incapable of uplifting themselves and even of copying what the white man has.

One could argue that blacks think that money grows on trees without effort and without intellect and that therefore the whites stole the money trees and they must steal them back.  This certainly is the case with regard to farms and mines.  This is a far cry from the reality in which whites have worked hard to develop methods and technologies and to apply them to create wealth – very few blacks have any concept of this principle and those who do are largely shunned by the ANC and classed as “counter-revolutionaries” and “clever blacks” whom Zuma despises.



A convenient way of dismissing all informed criticism from within the ANC.


Not only does Zuma condemn “clever”, presumably educated blacks who criticize him and the way the ANC is doing things or even question them – a return to Power-Fear – crush opponents, he also calls for a return to African ways, apparently totally oblivious to the irony of benefitting from European technologies and economy and then wanting to run them the African way which is (1) trash it the same as the rest of Africa and (2) live in grass huts and hunt with spears.  He also overlooks the point that they did not have prisons in the old days because if people got out of line they were swiftly beaten up or butchered.



In the extract above we see that Dingane / Dingaan was constantly executing those who threatened him or got in his way – this is typical Power-Fear behaviour and relates DIRECTLY to the roots from which Jacob Zuma descends not even 200 years ago.


8.    Afrikaners were TOO narrow in reserving land for blacks

One of the key mistakes that Afrikaners made from a public relations perspective was in insisting on limiting the “homelands” to the fragmented tracts of land occupied by blacks at the time the legislation was drafted instead of assigning larger contiguous areas that did NOT look so unacceptable on the map.


9.     Afrikaners made a mistake in using skin colour and in alienating Coloured and Indian people

Afrikaners also made a mistake in placing so much emphasis on colour instead of understanding the hereditary differences between different people groups – the Indians and many of the Coloureds were FAR more advanced than blacks and had a much better work ethic, technical skills, etc.  Because they alienated the Indians and the Coloureds in particular the Afrikaners strengthened the ANC in ways that made it much more viable than it would have been if it had been a purely black organization.


10.    Afrikaners trusted blacks to keep covenant in 1994 and have been betrayed

As with Retief and Dingaan, the Afrikaners made the mistake of trusting the blacks in the run-up to Universal Franchise and, as we see with Zuma and the ANC Leadership singing “the Cabinet will shoot the Boer with machine guns” together with thousands of supporters on 8 January 2012, they have been betrayed again.

Zuma is also reported to have stated that it is his intention to “avenge Blood River” referring to the battle where the Zulus were defeated when they attacked a small group of Afrikaners in an attempt to totally annihilate them.


11.    Most ANC claims are outright fabrication and without foundation

While, during the days of formal, legislated, Apartheid, there WERE atrocities and wrong doing the vast MAJORITY of what the ANC claims as consequences of Apartheid are the consequence of the inherited lack of technical knowledge and ability, the lack of modern culture, the lack of work ethic, the lack of written language and formal teaching, the lack of …, the lack of …, the lack of nearly anything of value in terms of a modern civilization on the part of the blacks – the white man did NOT take these things from the blacks – the blacks NEVER had them in the first place and now they are trying their best, as always, to steal them without any recognition of the effort the whites have made to create what exists today.

Apartheid -- Afrikaner South Africa's Public Relations DISASTER!


1.    As we have seen in the previous sections African people really did NOT have any significant knowledge, experience, technology, etc in ANY area that is necessary to operate a thriving first world economy – this is a harsh truth that, through Apartheid clashing with Liberalism, got entirely lost.


2.    Furthermore, Africans were, as recently as 1838 operating at a level of barbarism and primitive savagery that thought nothing of breaking a Peace Treaty signed the previous day and regarded impaling defenceless men on sharpened stakes through their rectums so that they died terrible deaths, as entirely acceptable – this, too, was lost through a badly communicated message.


3.     As we have seen, the Power-Fear culture of Africa coupled to the arrogance that results from limited learning and great ignorance resulted in a situation in which the majority of South African Africans were unable to engage with Europeans in a constructive manner.  This would have allowed them to be progressively uplifted at a fundamental level that recognized the importance of factors such as early childhood learning – this, too, was lost in the bedlam of confused messaging that was the pinnacle of Apartheid.  Some of then WERE uplifted but most were NOT.


4.    Within this confused situation a lot of good WAS done coming off a zero base to provide education, houses, towns, infrastructure, etc within the constraints of what the primarily European economy was able to finance.  In fact, the National Party Government went to considerable lengths and made significant sacrifices to uplift the African people but this was lost in the bedlam of bad public relations fed by the duality of Afrikaner anger and arrogance and the intolerance of global players for statutory race-regulation in any shape or form, no matter what the justification.


5.    Whether a different outcome could have been achieved is a moot point – the people of South Africa did the best they could with what they had and it backfired – just as I still want to believe that the leaders of South Africa are doing the best THEY can with what they have – even though I am firmly persuaded that South Africa is heading for cataclysmic melt-down.

Repent, Fast and Pray and seek the Almighty for Deliverance -- the only way South Africa can recover from the wreckage of the failed policy of Apartheid

If you have a settled conviction that there IS a Creator and that He DOES want a personal relationship with us and is able to protect and deliver us then this section is for you

If you do NOT believe there is a Creator or that He acts for His people in this age then this section is NOT for you

A few days before the Almighty asked me to write the book that forms the basis of this website He gave me a very comprehensive message about the spiritual situation in South Africa which I distributed to my Ministry Mailing List

This article goes into some detail about the present spiritual situation, from the specific point of view of believers and particularly Afrikaans believers in South Africa.  The article also sets out measures that might be taken through prayer, fasting and supplication to turn the situation in South Africa around WITHOUT violence.

Wrapping up -- APARTHEID -- fear driven inappropriate defensive action that triggered global condemnation and the looming destruction of white South Africans

It is time to stop blaming Apartheid for the fundamental deficiencies and weaknesses of Africa and time to recognize that it is ONLY through the concerted effort of European South Africans that South Africa has any hope of avoiding massive destruction


From consideration of the current situation in South Africa it is very easy to infer a hidden agenda to destroy Europeans in South Africa, however I have come to understand that this is NOT the case, refer

The counterpoint to this is that the motive of Afrikaner Europeans was ALSO not the motive imputed to them by the ANC and the Western world

If you consider what you find on this site important you may want to appeal to various bodies for help

At you will find guidelines in terms of Public Relations and Marketing practics to apply in getting an appeal for help out to the Western World in a constructive manner building on the European heritage of the people who are being murdered and forced out of the economy

At you will find over 200 email addresses for Western Newspapers and suggestions with regard to contacting them

At you fill find email addresses of Embassies and Diplomatic Missions in South Africa so that you can also contact them

and at for email addresses for all European Parliamentarians

In these latter cases I suggest you appeal for help to stop the murder of Europeans in South Africa and also for relaxation of imigration and citizenship laws in European countries for Europeans who want to leave South Africa

One Hundred Thousand challenged to seek the Almighty Creator at the Voortrekker Monument in Pretoria on Monday 16th December 2013

This website evidences the impending utter destruction of South Africa and challenges those who can grasp the seriousness of the situation to come before the Almighty in Pretoria on Monday 16th December 2013 to cry out for deliverance -- see page

If you have NOT seen this YOU need to!

President Jacob Zuma, President of South Africa, leads the ANC Leadership and tens of thousands of ANC supporters in singing "The Cabinet will shoot the Boer with machine guns" in Bloemfontein on 8th January 2012 -- it appears that he may well have done this AGAIN on 16th December 2012

If you have NOT seen this you NEED to

This violates his Oath of Office, the Constitution, and, and, and -- it is a basis for impeachment

The agreement reached in October does NOT neutralize the culpability of the PRESIDENT doing what you will see here

This is NOT a "struggle song" -- the Cabinet during the struggle was made up of Boers -- this is a MODERN song

There is a direct correlation between this and the massive rate of white murders discussed in this book and on this site (between 68,800 and 165,000 since 1994)

There are OTHER very unpleasant unavoidable conclusions to be drawn

Note the enthusiasm of the participants and then ask yourself what conclusion you draw!

This website and the book that is available for free download here discuss this and many other unpleasant facts that point to some very unpleasant conclusions about the direction that South Africa is going

You can download the video from

or from

Please take some time to engage with the content

The ONLY way that Jacob Zuma and the ANC can reverse this is by a widely broadcast public apology by Zuma and his top ANC Cabinet members broadcast on all TV and Radio Channels and many newspapers and CONCRETE action to bring a halt to ending white murders -- in my mind that requires that the Death Penalty is reinstated
