Last year, my statement at the top of the side menu bar, on every page, was:
SAVE SA -DEMAND TRUTH!
I’m sick of continued ANC versus DA and DA versus ANC bullshit that does nothing to help the public at all. Why aren’t ANC members also being as fervent when criticizing their party? Why does the DA get a free ride from white people whilst lying to us? The biggest problems are leadership and bias. There is no difference between the ANC, DA and the National Party if to rule means to lie to the public and enrich themselves. If anything, this is a class war and the public and lower political party members have been bamboozled into distraction. Give us, give me, critics who are voracious against all wrong. We will all sink unless we seek truth followed by action.
This year it’s:
HELP KNYSNA TO HELP YOURSELF
2012 was the year that most scared me as a South African. We had Zuma, Zille and Marikana. We had intensifying crime and corruption. Worse was the “responsive”, intensifying apathy by the public. We dropped on almost every ranking in the world. Change will not come from our “leaders”. It has to come from us, not as voters in a pretend democracy but rather as citizens engaging in our community. Let’s opinionate less about distant forces and rather be as active as we can in our own suburbs and towns. Let’s be the change that we can immediately see. Public service, the real, selfless deal, is the only way forward. Treat Knysna as your home. Help Knysna to help yourself!
