Bleak Future

The myopia and greed of the country’s new regime of rats have eroded my faith in the specific future I had once believed in. I do not foresee, today, any significant decrease in crime and violence in South Africa; I have serious doubts that our rulers can even guarantee a safe and successful soccer World Cup in 2010; I do not believe that the levels of corruption and nepotism and racketeering and incompetence and injustice and unacceptable practices of “affirmative action” in the country will decrease in the near future.

The rich will get richer and the poor will keep scratching around, as usual in Africa. It'll be a long, long time before they figure out that they need to kick these parasites out if they want things to change. Hopefully they'll have a chance to do so when they figure it out.
