Re: Thank you New Zealand

Anyway, I like Kiwis. They are nice people. I suppose they are - as long as you are not Australian. Then they chuck all of their verbal shit at you. :twisted: Ours is a lovely species... We cannot live without enemies... And if we don't have them, we invent some... And then we bash them as hard as ...

Re: Thank you New Zealand

Cass, He may not have intended to insult you but he did exactly that. Your friend, evidently, admired some qualities that you have but those qualities are not peculiar to New Zealanders. They are also present in you, a Singaporean. Your friend could have said l admire the qualities you have because...

Cass,

You never cease to amaze. You aooear to be happy because a New Zealander told you that you are almost like one of them? Don’t you have dignity? Why didn’t you call out the person for the backhanded insult?
I don't understand. He is my friend and I don't think he intended to insult me.

Re: Not socialism but justice.

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: Not socialism but justice.

The whites have much better farming skills than blacks because for generations they have been given every opportunity to develop these via the patently unjust land policies of their apartheid state. Whites have better farming skills because they came from countries where agriculture was done for se...

Re: Thank you New Zealand

Why do people concern themselves so much with religion? Religions are just power structures which play on our fear of death to manipulate and control us. In fact, all we need is a sound code of ethics which will frame our behaviour in respect of our own society and the world as a whole. A code whic...

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...
