As most of you are aware I am very concerned about the state of things in Africa and specifically South Africa. I have had the privilege to listen to many well informed people "from the continent" and "not from the continent" speak on these problems. Something that concerns me about the experts "not from the continent" is that they completely ignore the ANC & EFF's violence and intimidation tactics when looking for solutions for South Africa. I have recently listened to an American expert talk on the "way forward" for South Africa where he suggested South Africans must work to build a centrist vote. The most important issue I have with this suggestion is not that it is wrong, because it is correct, the problem I have with this suggestion is that it ignores the "People's War" the violent necklacing & killing of opponents by the ANC & its factions. A Democracy can only work when people are free to vote for whomever they want to without the threat of death or torture. South Africa is no Democracy because the People's War is exactly how the ANC gain and keep its support yet EVERYONE ignores this and keep pretending it's a lovely little Democracy. So going to try and fit this in with other stuff I'm doing, this thread will be about the ANC's People's War and; how it is preventing South Africa in becoming a Democracy, how it deliberately prevents South Africa from moving past Apartheid to enable the ANC to achieve their Marxist revolution - the NDR (National Democratic Revolution). Communism never ended, the People's War never stopped. I'll start with Anthea Jeffery, The South African Truth and Reconciliation Commission appointed by the ANC found the Apartheid Security forces were responsible for approximately 3% of the 20,500 deaths during 40 years of Apartheid. The ANC killed their own people to force them in joining the movement. Today this threat is used to keep voters from moving to the centre, aligning with whites or white ideas.
