Re: a Turkey waits to be plucked.

This authoritarian club of Erdogan, Trump and Putin (and junior partner Duterte) is rather scary to me. I just hope some uppance comes for Trump before his supporters let him pass his 'enabling act'! :lol: I doubt whether Trump could ever persuade even a Republican controlled Congress to give him s...

Re: even without "Socialism" South Africa has real problems.

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 absolutely agree with you on that Cass. But alas, it is already happening. ...

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

Ramphosa just wants power. So he is doing something that failed in neighbouring Zimbabwe. Thanks for reply, cassowary. I did not mention that there was this difference between Stalin's collectivization of farming and Mao's. The China that Mao took over had I believe been one where most arable land ...

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

It's important that White South Africans stand their ground and they are backed up globally, by everyone, because if they are forced out by any means it will create a precedent that will be used by nearly 100 countries. Unless you like the sound of 100 countries forcibly ejecting native born reside...

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

Even the most brilliant of leaders would be hard pressed to make something of this mess. The thing to do is bring on forced expropriation WITH compensation but where's the money going to come from after Zuma looting the place for so long? Also, is this going to be a crony rewards system or will som...

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: 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. A...
