Paradise In Hell: Will The South African Rand Morph Into The Zimbabwe Dollar?

Date: Monday, March 5, 2018 6:54 PM EDT


“The malady of normative decay gnaws at order in the person and at order in the republic. Until we recognize the nature of this affliction, we must sink ever deeper into the disorder of the soul and the disorder of the state. A recovery of norms can be commenced only when we moderns come to understand in what manner we have fallen away from old truths.” --Russell Kirk

Commentary & Analysis

In case you didn’t notice (quite possible because it doesn’t fit the MSM narrative), the esteemed South African parliament, in their infinite wisdom, decided that yes, because the ANC has turned the country into a paradise in hell during its 24-year reign of corruption and incompetence, now is the time to blame white farmers (again) for the country’s problems by confiscating their land (without compensation) and doling it out to political cronies whose skin color most likely won’t be white and farming skills most likely won’t be near the expert category.  

Here is the headline from the Daily Mail:

'We are not calling for the slaughter of white people - at least for now': South African parliament votes to SEIZE white-owned land as experts warn of violent repercussions

The New York Times, the paper whose slogan should be: All the news fit to spin, refers to this outrageous seizure as “land reform.”  Finally, some “justice” say many inside the ANC, and out. So, I guess white South African farmers can feel good knowing it is just “land reform,” and the parliament didn’t vote for slaughter.  Well they likely didn’t vote for slaughter because white South African farmers are already being slaughtered, tortured, and raped in impressive numbers.  Where is their “justice.”  Just asking? 

I am looking forward to seeing how this works for South Africa; but I am not optimistic. After all, it seems as if its déjà vu all over again.
