Re: Socialism is about to be tried in S Africa and no doubt will again fail.

Thanks for the lengthy reply from which I learned new things. My comment is that whatever the reason that is making Ramphosa to appropriate the land without compensation, the end result will be the same. Economic decline. I've thought about this a lot because I'm not unsympathetic to arguments that...

Re: Socialism is about to be tried in S Africa and no doubt will again fail.

I always regarded Socialism as theft. Socialists seek to take from those who have more to give to those who have less. It preys on people's envy - one of the 7 deadly sins. Stalin and Mao did the same. The ANC always have had a Communist element that wanted the wealth of the more successful who hap...

Re: Socialism is about to be tried in S Africa and no doubt will again fail.

A racist Communist famine grows in S Africa President Ramaphosa had vowed early on to seize land from white farmers without compensation. "The expropriation of land without compensation is envisaged as one of the measures that we will use to accelerate redistribution of land to black South Africans...

Re: Socialism is about to be tried in S Africa and no doubt will again fail.

Countries fortunate enough to have some degree of agricultural self-sufficiency have a moral obligation to preserve productive farmland. Transferring title to land from folks who know how to properly manage it to folks with neither the skill nor the inclination to farm is gross stupidity, whether i...

Re: The November 2018 Congressional election mega thread

Cassowary: what I find Ironic about Stamford Raffles founding Singapore as a free trade port is that his employer, the East India Company, did not believe in free trade. This ruthless corporation treated India like a gigantic milch cow to be milked dry for the benefit of its corporate bottom line. ...

Re: Thank you New Zealand

Exactly. Hopefully, "we will be a more pleasant species." And how might we achieve that? Eliminate Islam by converting Muslims and human violence drops by 50%. Aussies and Kiwis might throw verbal shit at each other but Muslims throw bombs. And how do you convert Muslims without the use of violence...
