One of those days when I’m just really pessimistic and sad about the way the world operates…..
I get involved in discussing South African politics, but it’s all a sinister game that mostly distracts and f*cks with the average citizen.
The reality is that politicians are puppets that serve the wealthy people who milk South Africa through big local and foreign businesses. In return the politicians keep the masses at bay through flimsy laws, the army and the police… and give them scraps in the form of social welfare.
The more educated among us simply whine and complain, but are too scared to get involved and are trapped in the money game as salaried employees with debt and high living costs around our necks.
Countries are fictional entities and borders are merely segregation Apartheid tools to help manage the people on behalf of wealthy business owners.
I sit on platforms and discuss these issues. But I know they are all bogus, mere psychological games to make us pick dumb sides and assist the powerful to push their agendas.
Buy Black, Buy Local, Patriotism… these are dumb concepts peddled by powerful who do not engage in these things; who support those who enrich and defend them and their loved ones. It is not about the citizens, the nation, a race, etc. It’s about self-interest, controlling the masses psychologically.
ANC government and Transnet have given away half of the Durban port to a serious Philippino family that dominates ports globally… but who the f*ck really cares?!
The DA is pretending that they won a court case to get the ANC to say they’ll arrest Putin if he comes here – after Putin agreed with the SA govt that he won’t come through – while they do nothing about gang violence and drugs at the Cape Flats.
Politicians are just trying to make money. They don’t know how to run a country. The private sector is ugly worried about making profits. Foreigners are here to try get a better life for themselves because white people in SA offer them better opportunities than back home.
Black South Africans are hypnotized by Malema, fake Pan-Africanism rhetoric, obsession with getting land back, refusing to support their own and drugged up to garbage reality TV & social media.
It’s just one of those days for me where human beings make me sad because they are so ignorant and stupid, yet expect to be rescued from self-inflicted misery. Let me go make hot chocolate, watch a nice movie, enjoy being off-grid and unplug from the masses who don’t deserve good leaders. Just for a bit.
Hopefully I’ll feel better soon and get back into this fake game of liberation, non-existent financial freedom, distracting political squabbles and toxic social media.
South Africa is just a piece of land with great commodities, opportunities, climate & landscape for those willing to work hard, steal and kill for it. Everyone else here, legal or otherwise, is merely a begging social welfare rat, an exploited tax-paying donkey or a zombie sheep ready to be slaughtered.
One day soon, I need to embrace that I’m meant to cross over to the lion’s den, eat everyone because that’s my purpose. Trying to wake-up people who prefer submission, servitude and exploitation – is my mental illness.
But I’m in rehab now. I’ll fix myself soon and feast. I have paid the cost. I’ll soon be the boss. Cheers guys!
