Assets and People do NOT EQUAL Wealth

In previous sections I have touched on the issue of Africans regarding assets and people, no matter their condition or productivity, as wealth rather than focusing on productive assets gainfully employed and productive people who are healthy, well fed and well educated.  This is the only way I can see to explain the ongoing ANC obsession with taking over farms and on-going threats to mines when it is apparent that these experiments have largely failed except where other races have been actively involved in the background.  This section analyses this phenomenon in more detail:

 o   The Land Issue

 o   Asset Obsession and things that are NOT Wealth

 o   Different Definitions of Wealth – Another Point of Difference


The Land Issue

Much is made by the ANC of white ownership of land, this section examines this in more detail:

 

1.    There are huge tracts of land with no perennial water, Africans had and have no technical capability to survive in such areas, large areas of South Africa were totally uninhabited at the time the Europeans settled them – it is totally false for Africans to claim this land.

 

2.    The Europeans had no desire to “oppress” the Africans and, with limited exceptions, the Africans were quite happy for the Europeans to settle in areas where the Africans were NOT operating.

 

3.    IF the Europeans had been dispossessing the Africans in an unacceptable manner the balance of power has ALWAYS been with the Africans in terms of population numbers and, with some effective military strategies it would have been easy to eradicate the Europeans over a period of at least the fifty years before the British actively participated militarily – the Africans failed to do this.

 

4.    Large areas of land are, even today, sparsely inhabited with a single European family farming huge areas in order for them to be commercially viable – Africans have not demonstrated the ability to do this in any part of Africa that I have visited – yet one European family can tame and manage such areas profitably and effectively.

 

5.    The reality is that land is a status symbol or asset in the eyes of Africans irrespective of its productive status and so we see demands for farms and mines when all the evidence proves that they do NOT have the capability to operate these productively.  But the ANC still demands them anyway and various spokesmen esteem Robert Mugabe’s land grabs even though most of the farms are derelict and unproductive – the Africans have the land, THAT is what matters.

 

6.   There is NO acknowledgement that mines and farms are the result of the intellectual knowledge and experience and hard creative work of Europeans and that this gives them a just claim to the land they have beneficiated.  Africans are NOT prepared to take land that has NOT been beneficiated and develop it themselves, the rest of Africa clearly evidences that they lack the capability to do this.

 

7.    There is a brutal truth borne out throughout Africa – put the average European of 200 years ago in the middle of nowhere with an ox wagon full of basic tools and resources and within a few years he will have built a quality homestead and developed viable agriculture – put an African on the same land with the same resources and you will have a hovel and poverty.

Asset Obsession and things that are NOT Wealth

 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 – Another Point of Difference

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.

 

Genetics?

As I have indicated in several sections there is a HIGHLY CONTENTIOUS question – “in the field of intellectual capability to create wealth and operate a function industrial economy are there GENETIC differences between Africans and Europeans that hinder Africans from achieving their full nominal potential when measured by European standards?”

 

As stated previously my Liberal upbringing has caused me to choke repeatedly on the answers that I have been arriving at as I have investigated this subject.

 

The following sections explore this subject:

o   Major Gaps in African Deductive Reasoning – Cause and Effect, etc

o   Is the Manifest Cause and Effect Cognitive Gap Throughout Africa Evidence of a Genetic Short Coming?

Major Gaps in African Deductive Reasoning – Cause and Effect, etc

 

1.   Simple high level inspection of the conduct of the leadership of the ANC, BEE appointees, Cadres and Affirmative Action appointees all to point major gaps in deductive – cause and effect reasoning, problem solving, initiative and creativity.  They appear to be very good at copying, at memorising without understanding, at learning by rote – but deep understanding and cognitive understanding – it seems that these gaps are so widespread that they may well be genetic.

 

2.   There are major gaps in deductive reasoning throughout Africa – every country makes roughly the same mistakes and now we see South Africa, through the ANC, making essentially the mistakes of all the nations in Africa which have preceded us to “independence” – Africans want the mines and the farms and then trash them with massive loss of jobs and living standards and direct loss to the leaders as well.

 

3.    There appears to be an almost universal lack of ability to analyse and make deductions with the result that they constantly take completely inappropriate decisions and actions.

 

4.    This appears to be hereditary – consideration suggests that initiative and questioning are NOT consistent with Power-Fear leadership and has therefore probably been the subject of murderous attention to such an extreme extent that the genes for this capability have been lost or seriously diminished or limited to a very limited “royal” line.

 

5.   At the same time we find Africans have very good memories and basic pattern based learning without understanding – this was necessary because of the absence of written language and writing so they had to rely on memory and rapid retention for survival.

 

6.    Their primitive “live off the land” subsistence existence did not favour creativity.

 

7.    They operated based on what was available and learned patterns and methods from the elders with no attempt to evolve complexity and capability – a degenerative lowest common denominator learning model.

 

8.    Coupled to Power-Fear there is an element of – “remember and get it right or else you will be brutally clubbed to death”.

 

9.   No appreciation for the mobilization of intellect to create wealth – a greed based orientation which was conveniently focussed on the white man’s things once the white man showed up and which persists today.

 

10.  On the basis that I hold that there WAS a global flood about 4,500 years ago and that ALL human beings on earth descended from one man and his three sons who all made landfall in Eastern Turkey, I have it that there has been progressive migration away from this center with those who were weaker, lost technology faster, were more cowardly, constantly migrating further away faster in order to survive.  According to this model the African people of South Africa are the most degenerate, most regressive of the people of all Africa and are therefore the most primitive and savage and least intellectually capable.  It is a harsh judgement but I hold that, if you consider the facts carefully, it is very hard to draw a different conclusion.  Note that the San / Bushman / Hottentot people were the first wave and for the purposes of this analysis are disregarded although it might be argued that in some respects they have more advanced methods and technologies than the Bantu who followed them and largely killed them.

 

11.  Thus we find ourselves with African South Africans exhibiting a veneer of civilization through European influence but in the form of rote learning and NOT an intellectual understanding.  So they apply the techniques without insight and cannot comprehend that they are failing in order to take deductive measures to learn from their mistakes.  This lack of deductive ability and technical capability is WHY they fled furthest from the center and it is then why the South African economy is being destroyed in such a comprehensive manner.  BUT it appears that they know what they are doing – they ARE nice people after all – or so it seems most of the time until you comprehend the significance of the President singing “the Cabinet will shoot the Boer with machine guns” coupled with a massive murder rate.

Is the Manifest Cognitive Gap Throughout Africa Evidence of a Genetic Short Coming?

 

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:

http://psychology.uwo.ca/faculty/rushtonpdfs/pppl1.pdf

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

 

 http://wnlibrary.com/Portabel%20Documents/R/Rushton%20Materials/Thirty%20Years%20Of%20Research%20On%20Race%20Differences%20In%20Cognitive%20Ability%20-%20J%20Philippe%20Rushton%20And%20Arthur%20R%20Jensen.pdf

 

 

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?

Words – Harder than Concrete

The following piece was written over a year ago for publication by a South African professional Journal but was declined because it was viewed as too racially contentious.  It is relatively upbeat about possible solutions and I have to say that my view has become considerably more pessimistic about South Africa in the subsequent year.

The basic principles remain valid however as they relate to the fundamental psychology of human beings and the role of words in this psychology.

I have previously addressed a number of issues which are potentially impacting the success of the South African experiment.  An experiment in peaceful regime change that caught the imagination of many around the world.  An experiment that continues to be monitored.  In this piece I will look at another facet of what is absolutely vital to the success of the "rainbow nation" --  language --  words -- psychology:

 

1.    An early hard lesson – words and psychology are harder than concrete

When I started out doing what I do today, I was of the opinion that psychology was "for sissies" – I was an engineer, I KNEW how to design things that worked, "the soft issues", psychology, were "fluff and stuff" that I did not need to know about.

As I entered the world of non-tangible projects I walked "slap bang" into a series of projects in which I discovered that, in fact, psychology, and the words that create psychology, were harder than concrete.

A person who has adopted a mental position or stance and is resisting change or refusing to change is much more difficult to identify than a block of concrete in the road and a lot more difficult to move.

 

                                                

Blocks of concrete, buildings and similar physical world components standing in the way of change can be simply blown up and trucked away.  A human being who is mentally standing, arms akimbo and saying "you want me to do that?  Try me and see" is much harder to identify and much harder to shift.

As a person who has passionately believed in this country all my life I now find myself reading the words that are being spoken by diverse people, listening to conversations and listening to what is NOT said and I am DEEPLY concerned.

So this article is intended as a technical discussion of some principles that I hold are vital to understanding the dynamics of our lovely country and to charting the future of peace and prosperity that we all so earnestly desire.

I have come to understand that in order to succeeed one must ensure that failure does not happen.

Thus, where I discuss negative aspects or factors that may cause failure it is within this context – the context of an engineer who is passionate about engineering and therefore who is passionate about success being achieved by NOT failing.

 

2.    Words design and build engineering systems and …

There is a lot of talk these days about nationalizing farms and mines without compensation and other talk that, for many, causes deep discomfort.

What is a farm, a mine, an economy?

An economy is the consequence of a symbiotic interaction between different people with different knowledge and experience, who interact to create value such that there is sufficient value created that the people who created the value have something left for their own enjoyment.

But let us step back a moment.

How does a farm, a mine, a building or a bridge come into existence?

Fundamentally all significant things, technologies and methodologies come into existence through an exchange of ideas between human beings and then an interaction between human beings to make the thing a reality.

A bridge is designed by a person who has the knowledge and experience to identify the need to get to the other side of a river or gorge, communicating that need to someone who knows how to design a bridge.

That person then produces sketches and drawings which are annotated with … well, words, a drawing is valueless without the words and numbers that explain what it is about, what materials are used, what dimensions apply, etc.

The system or structure is painstakingly created by human beings using words to communicate to other human beings what needs to be done – "excavate a rectangular hole, three meters long and two meters wide until you reach bedrock" would be one such instruction.  Design and construction requires a continuous stream of words between human beings who understand the meaning of those words – if I use the word "bedrock" and you do not know what  "bedrock" is we are stuck right there until we find a common understanding that allows you to determine when the hole has reached bedrock.

Mines, like farms and like bridges, are the consequence of symbiotic interaction between human beings using words to conceptualize, design and direct the action of other human beings towards the desired outcome.  Remove the human beings who have the knowledge and experience to operate the mine and we are left with a hole in the ground and infrastructure sold for scrap as in the recent failure of Aurora that was widely reported.

3.    Numbers are very special words

In discussing words it is important to recognize that numbers are actually very special words and symbols – they have very specific meanings.

Engineers constantly use numbers as special words in their communications to indicate dimensions, flow characteristics of fluids, time, etc.  Without numbers engineers do not have a basis to communicate.

Understanding of the quantum significance of a numeric value is fundamental to understanding technology in nearly all cases.

As I prepared to write this article, a newspaper headline stated "at least 40,000 potholes fixed every month in Gauteng since beginning of year" – a mind blowing statistic which I find hard to believe and, if it is correct, a massive indictment of the state of disrepair of roads in Gauteng.  One has to ask whether the person who made that statement had their facts correct or whether perhaps the person who recorded and reported the statistic perhaps made a mistake.  For a technical person who understands roads and road repair that number carries with it all sorts of crisis meaning that is not available to most who read the article without that insight.

 

4.    Words operate by association

As with the case above, words work by association – "Lion" has no meaning until some basic impartation of knowledge takes place.  "Lion" has a different association if one has seen a poor quality photograph; or if one has studied in detail a book full of close-up photographs and many pages of text; or if one has actually seen lions in a zoo or in a game reserve; and a much greater association if you have been chased by a lion; attacked by a lion; or lost a leg or a loved one in an attack by a lion.

"Bedrock" in the preceding point carries with it different meaning depending on the depth of one's understanding of geology.

"40,000 potholes a month" has a different significance if you actually spend your life repairing potholes.

And, so it goes.

Calling people "thieves" or "criminals" carries with it a particularly unpleasant association and, by association, opens the door to mental pictures of how one might deal with such people.  When this is publicly widely stated and repeatedly reported it triggers negative attitudes in the minds of those who are NOT branded as thieves and criminals and also in the minds of those so branded.  This is particularly so IF they consider the label to be inappropriate or, in fact totally unjust and uncalled for.  This leads to other negative word associations and potentially strong and hostile negative reactions.

Such words are being bandied about in certain quarters and, having been spoken to those they have been applied to, they are increasingly generating very negative responses.  One of those negative responses is that people are leaving, another is that they are mentally "resigning", giving up.  There are other responses as well that are even less desirable.

 

5.    Words build morale and tear it down, start wars and end wars, define love and destroy love

Words build morale and tear it down.

A very powerful book on building constructive relationships between human beings is "How to win friends and influence people" by Dale Carnegie -- see Amazon at http://www.amazon.com/How-Win-Friends-Influence-People/dp/0671027034

It is an excellent book on how to get the best out of people … through the use of constructive and uplifting words.  If you have not read it I heartily recommend it.

It so happens that almost the entire book deals with the words people use towards one another and their attitude in using those words.  Having read the book some years ago I took significant measures to adjust my way of dealing with people and my way of speaking to people.

Words start wars, and end them.

Winston Churchill's stirring oratory "we will fight them on the beaches … we will NEVER surrender" is widely credited with the British Isles fending off the German attack in the Second World War and, at some level, turning the war around resulting in Germany's defeat.

Yes, there were MANY other factors but, were it not for the high level of motivation and morale of the British during those days it is unlikely that they would have survived the onslaught.

Words define love and tear down love.

Words…

                Words …

                                Words …

                                                Words are, in a very real sense, the very essence of advanced society and human interaction.

We have a choice every moment of every day to utter words that build up or words that tear down.

And … the harsh reality is that it takes far fewer negative, destructive words to tear down and destroy morale than it takes to build it up.

It takes far fewer words of distrust to destroy trust than it takes to build trust.

And, from where I sit, there are too many negative words being uttered by African people in public life in South Africa today for the good of the nation.  Deteriorating morale is far more prevalent than is healthy.

From where I sit "kill the farmer / Boer" is language I will not accept and will not tolerate.  I have family who farm.  I regularly receive reports of farmers who have been brutally murdered or beaten up.  My entire grounding in language and words tells me there is a solid and unavoidable correlation between the words and the deeds.

I cannot comprehend how anyone who claims to want goodwill in this society can argue for the singing of that song and I even more cannot comprehend how they can talk of appealing the recent Court Order (2011) against singing “shoot the Boer”.

With this context you will see how I find the two video clips above so TOTALLY unacceptable.

We need to speak constructive words over this nation.

We need to SING constructive words over this nation.

 

6.    "Sorry" one of the  most important words

I have learned over many years that I make mistakes.

And, I have also learned that when I make mistakes the most powerful words are "I recognize that I have … and I want to apologize unreservedly for what I have done" or simply "I am really sorry, please forgive me".

What would it do for the psyche of this nation if those who have insisted on championing "shoot the Boer" were to say "we have realized that these words cause great discomfort to a large number of people, that was not our intention, we are truly sorry for the pain and discomfort we have caused and we apologize unreservedly and commit to never again sing or speak those words"?

Whites NEED to hear this LOUDLY and PUBLICLY from President Jacob Zuma IN PERSON.

 

7.    "No" another very important word

There is a time to say to someone that what they are doing is unacceptable.

We should NOT have to let things get so out of hand that we are so angry that we are able to mobilize ourselves to say "no".  All that is required when confronted with unacceptable behaviour is to say "I do NOT accept that behaviour, kindly cease at once".  And, surely if the other party is seeking to build relationships, build morale and build a nation they will go out of their way to understand why the other person is upset and to change their behaviour or their words in a constructive manner.

People who do this are ambassadors for peace.

People who go the other way are ambassadors for war as much as they may proclaim alternative agendas.  I think particularly of President Jacob Zuma in the Videos above.

It would NOT be necessary to hold "disciplinary hearings" if leaders said "no" consistently and clearly when behaviour was out of line.

It is people's words more than anything else which direct our behaviour and influence our attitudes.

There is a need to say "no, we will not …" and to be clear about it – either it is government policy to seize farms and mines without compensation or it is not.  Why are we CONSTANTLY fed mixed messages?

If it is not then all that is required is "no, we will not …" and if it is then it is time to be open and honest with all the people of this country.

 

8.    Silence – a very powerful word

An extension of the previous point – silence.

Some years ago I attended a speaking course on "the nine types of silence in public speaking" which discussed at length, with examples, how silence can be used for emphasis in speaking.

Ever since then I have become intensely aware of silence as an element of communication.  In particular, a long silence will get people's attention and, if too long, will make them uneasy.

So it is in the public arena – when a person in the public eye makes statements that are widely reported, especially when at some level that person purports to represent the powers that be, those who are impacted by those statements pay attention and look for those in power to either confirm or deny the uncomfortable statements.

Ultimately, the harsh reality is that when someone in a high profile position allied to government states that farms and mines will be nationalized and government does not robustly countermand those statements and say "NO" the unavoidable conclusion is that government actually is saying "yes" – there is a saying "a deafening silence" and that is what has accompanied certain public utterances for an uncomfortably long period of time now.

When that person calls whites "criminals and thieves" and there is silence one has to conclude that the leadership of the ANC agree and that rumours that Julius Malema was actually the spokesperson of the ANC to the masses were valid and that it was only when he overstepped the mark and criticized his sponsors that he was disciplined.

People are drawing conclusions, those conclusions are not favourable, and they are taking measures in response.  Reports indicate that well over one million people -- highly skilled and highly educated and therefore highly economically active people, including their families -- have left South Africa since 1994 and indications are that the exodus continues.  A recent report indicates that "800 graduate professionals are leaving South Africa every month".

 

9.    Words, will determine the success or failure of the South African experiment

For those with eyes to see and ears to hear, the loss of these people is starting to threaten the technology framework and infrastructure of this rainbow nation, whether in education, in engineering, in … the drain is happening.  Racially flavoured words about "too many …" and "not enough …" are sapping morale and sending a message to many that they are not welcome and should get out while the going is good.

The trillion dollar question is whether the economy of this country can thrive despite this loss – words will determine the outcome.

Other nations go out of their way to attract graduate professionals and business people.  As one of those people I have to say that the message I am consistently receiving from the ruling elite in South Africa is that I am no longer welcome in the country of my birth – I wonder if that really IS the message they want to send?

If not, it is time for course correction, it is time for clear, concise, consistent communication that says that ALL South Africans are welcome and valued in the country of their birth.  Words will make or break this country in the months and years ahead.”

Either President Zuma and the ANC condone the murder of white South Africans or they do not -- all their words and their silences at this point indicate that they DO condone these murders -- they will have to change their language radically and consistently if I am to conclude that they are opposed to these murders.

The African Victim Drama and European Rescue Drama Dynamic

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.

Communism – Exacerbating Power-Fear and Arrogant Ignorance

 

1.    Communism has found a fertile breeding ground in the ANC because of the wrong beliefs of the ANC, particularly relating to Arrogant Ignorance and Power-Fear while Christian Liberals complement and magnify these wrong beliefs, in part out of Victim-Rescue dramatic behaviour.

 

2.   The concept of “struggle” on the part of the ANC found fertile fuel in the tenents of communism, particularly the concept that the workers create wealth and the intellectuals steal it despite the reality that the leaders and thinkers conceptualize and oversee the wealth creating activities.

 

3.    In saying this it is important to understand that revolution, and particularly the Russian Revolution, arose arguably because of too tight fisted an attitude on the part of the elite but, I do not have first-hand exposure to this to know if this really was the case or whether the Russian Revolution was, in fact, an outcome of Arrogant Ignorance on the part of the proletariat’s leaders.  Either way something between 40 and 70 million people died during the Russian Revolution.  Many starved to death because the mechanisms of food production were destroyed – an unpleasant indication of what is looming for South Africa.

 

4.   It is important to note that IF there were indeed excesses and exploitation in Russia leading to the Russian Revolution, as with the French Revolution, exactly those same excesses and, increasingly exploitation, are manifesting amongst the African elite in South Africa.

 

5.    As much as China professes itself to be Communist, it has, in fact, found itself to be bound by the same laws of economics that apply no matter what “ism” label is applied – value of output from creative human endeavour must exceed the costs of ALL inputs including time and creative genius in order to create a sustainable situation.  When this equation gets out of balance some form of correction, whether collapse or revolution is inevitable.  This balance is rapidly being destroyed in South Africa in a manner that suggests that Revolution is inevitable.  Note that China today is, in many respects, behaving in a very capitalistic manner.

 

6.    The ANC seems to sincerely (or stupidly) believe that it can break this rule and get away with it on a sustainable basis.  I sincerely hope that by the time you have finished reading this book you will recognize that this is just NOT possible.

 

7.    Every Communist revolution has been accompanied by massive loss of life – this has yet to happen in South Africa BUT it is only a matter of time before the on-going communist anti-white struggle rhetoric and hate speech sparks the greed driven orgy of killing and looting that characterizes the formation of any truly Communist state.

 

8.    In the case of the ANC, the African Power-Fear culture coupled with extreme proletariat level Arrogant Ignorance, means that we are sitting on a TIME BOMB in South Africa.  A time bomb that is primed to EXPLODE SOON.

Do NOT Impute Motive

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

http://www.south-africa-the-real-issues.org/Home/DoNOTImputeMotiveANCNOhiddenagenda.aspx

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 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

or from https://docs.google.com/file/d/0BxX3T4bXCWezYjVHQzNBU3hLTWM/edit?usp=sharing

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

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