Whites buy Blacks to keep the myth of rainbow nation

By The Maytrix.

The South African miracle rising and falling pattern makes for an interesting inquest. A rainbow nation of chickens seemingly reluctant to hatch, or just hoping to indefinitely delay the coming out. The question of which came first very relevant in the current discourse. Do we first seek stability then effect change afterwards? Or do we effect change then seek stability thereafter?

In 1994 we seem to have opted for stability first with a view to changing overtime. To be more blunt, South Africa chose peace above change. It is not that straightforward though. Peace itself was change. De Klerk

  1. This is very serious stuff and absolutely on the number.It is very unfortunate that we opted for (“Stability” or more accurate ME FIRST) rather than South Africans to be “HEALED” we are seriously injured due to gross inequality which caused serious impoverishment. We therefore needs healing. This healing can only happen through honest and serious redistribution of wealth (which has become a very uncomfortable term for many. Until such time that South African get to understand how the economy really works and how we are fooled into believing that stability will take us forward (WHERE TO) I am of the opinion that this article should be circulated as much as possible. Thank you very much Pinky for this article

  2. 65% of our national income goes to white people!!
    Unemployment rate for white people is 5% and unemployment rate for Africans is 35%.
    We demand land and wealth tax.

    Theres no rainbow nation.

  3. Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a butterfly. True transformation. Death, resurrection and ascension. Rebirth. The phoenix rising from the ashes. Regeneration. The sunset and the sunrise.

    Is it a coincidence that the 1994 strategy gave us the sunset clauses, stability and our current nervous condition? Twenty two years later we are due for a strategy review or risk being declared insane. The former Public Protector gave a speech recently at the Ahmed Kathrada Lecture titled ‘What must rise’? The sun. The Sun must rise. It is time.

  4. We were sold out in 1994. We remain with the same problems we had before. The very same constitution holds us back from that which we need

  5. It would be interesting to hear/read what your vision/concept of a new South Africa is. Without chickens in or under the rainbow.
    Destruction of the old should always carry amd nurture the new inside so that it can be born at the right time.

  6. Unfortunately whether we like it or not, we have to realize we are in comfort zone and we need to get out.

  7. Powerful stuff. I wish you would write more in this blog/website. Otherwise the site becomes quite factional. But on the article. What about the ability or that the global markets, especially the financial market actually own our economy. So therefore although it may be unfair, historically wrong and illegal, we can’t take back that which was wrongly taken, so we are stuck in this unfair but real situation. So for change to happen, especially because we (read Black or non-West) do not matter, we are expendable, we therefore have to appease while we slowly change things around. (Liberal/Western) Democracy, as I have found through research, is not a guarantor or does not even promise equality, all it can guarantee and promise is mandate and accountability of the institutions of democracy but certainly not socio-economic equality. So therefore, where is the wiggle room to wiggle out, all we can do is wiggle within ….
