South Africa Follows Formula for Failure; Will USA?

Whom the gods would destroy, they first make mad. Countries the gods would destroy, they turn over to moonbats. South Africa is an illustrative case in point. Due to moonbattery, the Rainbow Utopia is destined to be an unhappy country:

This is the view of Efficient Group founder and chief economist Dawie Roodt, who was speaking at an event hosted by the Free Market Foundation.

Unhappy countries follow an established path to economic ruin:

1. Destroy the existing capital in the country.

2. Frighten the taxpayers by continuing to increase taxes.

3. Scare savers by targeting their money.

4. The country tries to inflate itself out of debt.

The resulting hyperinflation destroys the economy and thereby the country.

Capital destruction is accomplished by confiscating money and then wasting it.

The reason for this capital destruction is simple – politicians want money to execute their ideologies and for self-enrichment.

When cash inevitably runs low, the politicians raise taxes.

Roodt explained that even when the government increases taxes further, they will not increase tax collection much, as the taxpayers are already overburdened.

Refer to the Laffer Curve for an illustration.

Since taxes can’t pay the bills, they come after savings.

Roodt said this is happening in South Africa with the ANC’s prescribed assets plans, which will give politicians control of pension funds and where this money is invested.

Big Government is like a forest fire. The more fuel it finds, the hotter it burns, the more fuel it demands. Soon not even enslaving people through excessive taxation and looting them by confiscating their savings will suffice. The deficit keeps growing, since there is literally no limit to how much money government can waste on counterproductive projects like the Welfare State. That’s when politicians hyperinflate the currency to pay down the debt.

This, Roodt said, is the reason why the ANC wants to get control over the SA Reserve Bank (SARB), because if you can control the SARB you can get rid of your debt.

This is not conjecture. The cretins who have been put in control of South Africa are sometimes straightforward about their policy. To quote Nhlanhla Nene, former Minister of Finance:

“Our people are poor because there is a shortage of money in the country. It’s not the shortage of jobs that makes people poor, it is the shortage of money. We have paper and ink, so we will print more money and give it to the poor, and make all of them billionaires if that is possible.”

This is liberal economic policy boiled down to its purest essence.

When everyone is a billionaire, no one is a billionaire, because the currency is worthless. But at least there is equity in destitution for everyone who is not part of the socialist government.

There is no part of this formula for failure that Democrats will not follow if given the opportunity, even if they are less straightforward about it than Nene. As went Zimbabwe and Venezuela, so goes South Africa, so will go the USA if they are not kept from power.

Foreigners Targeted in South African Looting

Now that whites have turned over the country they created, there is no more racism in South Africa. Everyone lives together as brothers and sisters. Except that they had better not be white people. Or foreigners.

From News24:

Foreign-owned shops were targeted in Soweto as some residents went on a looting spree on Wednesday evening.

By late night, reports of looting were still coming in.

Police spokesperson Captain Kay Makhubele confirmed the incidents in Zola, Emdeni, Moletsane, White City, Zondi and Rockville.

Oddly, despite the obsession the Western media had with South Africa before the fall of Apartheid, items like this never seem to qualify as international news.

South African Police Lose Their Guns and Ammo

How is a criminal to acquire guns and ammo in a society that has completely succumbed to leftism? Once again, the rainbow utopia of South Africa shows us the way:

Beeld reported that 41% of police officers (8,731 out of 21,206) who were assessed failed their annual shooting test. …

Lieutenant-General Elias Mawela blamed the poor performance on a lack of ammunition for training…

Now why might they be short on ammunition?

Since 2013, the SA Police Service “lost” 4,357 firearms and an incredible 9.6 million rounds of ammunition.

Lost ammunition is likely to be found on the black market.

Police officers who can’t pass the shooting test have to hand in their weapons. Meanwhile, violent crime in South Africa continues to shoot through the stratosphere.

Fortunately, there is still some remnant of a free market in South Africa. There are 2½ private security guards for every police officer in the country. However, they too will have to turn in their guns eventually, as will all law-abiding private citizens, if the country continues to tailspin into leftism.

Before long, only criminals will be armed.

South Africa Tourism Minister: Come Visit

Never mind the violence, often explicitly targeting whites, that has been exploding as the rainbow utopia tailspins into ruin. South Africa Tourism Minister Mmamakolo Kubayi-Ngubane wants you to come visit.

Forget the rash of tourist robberies and even the stabbing death of Ukrainian tourist Ivan Ivanov. Kubayi-Ngubane assures prospective visitors:

“In relation to the incidents that have happened recently, we are happy that police have taken action to ensure that the perpetrators are arrested within reasonable time.”

See? Nothing to worry about. Although I don’t think Arnold Schwarzenegger will go back soon. Also, tourists may want to steer clear of KwaZulu-Natal, where guests had to be evacuated from a resort last December after it was stormed by hundreds of savages wielding crude weapons.

At least they should keep getting visitors from China. Air traffic between China and Africa is up 630% over the past decade. This is because, as whites are driven out, the Chinese are filling the vacuum as the new colonialists, making use of debt-trap diplomacy to secure leverage. Africa’s resources are too valuable to leave in the ground.

Unemployment in South Africa

Under the leadership of supposed racist Donald Trump, the USA has seen black unemployment fall to record lows. Let’s see how it’s doing in black-ruled post-Apartheid South Africa, where liberals got their way:

Persistent unemployment has become synonymous with the youth experience across South Africa. Youth unemployment rates are almost four times higher than the regional average – 62% of South Africans between 15 and 35 years are unemployed and of these 60% have never been employed.

Add to this the fact that even those who have jobs are earning below what is considered to be a monthly living wage and what emerges is youth employment crisis.

They could work on farms, but many don’t want to. There is a social stigma against it. The work is too hard, and Big Agribusiness is run by white racists. Fortunately, confiscating land owned for centuries by whites and handing it to blacks is sure to resolve this problem, just like it did in the erstwhile Breadbasket of Africa, Zimbabwe.

Mariandra Heunis: The Face of South Africa

Liberal journalists were all over South Africa back when they had it in their social justice warrior crosshairs. Once they got their way, having helped Nelson Mandela to power, they moved on to other agenda items. The pointless horror that has predictably unfolded in the aftermath of their sanctimonious jihad goes all but unreported. Few outside the country know what is happening in the lives of people like Mariandra Heunis:

Mariandra Heunis and her children are the survivors of a vicious, dead-of-night attack on her family. Her husband — her childrens’ father — is not. He was killed in their home outside Pretoria, South Africa, in what has come to be called a “farm attack — the targeted terrorizing of farmers…

Mariandra, her husband, and their three little girls were asleep when the two armed attackers came. She was eight months pregnant with a son Johann Heunis would never meet — Mariandra gave birth just five days after she buried him.

Anti-Caucasian redistributionist rhetoric by the ruling ANC and other still more radical parties like EFF and BLF has driven a rise in the brutal farm attacks, which often entail torture.

Meanwhile, South Africa’s president and his party have vowed to move forward with a plan to amend the constitution to allow for the seizure of farmland owned by white Africans to give the land to black Africans.

That is, seizure without compensation of land that has often been in the family for many generations.

Whites settled the region starting in 1652. Now South Africa is largely populated by the descendants of blacks who came from other parts of the continent afterward, drawn by the wealth Afrikaners created.

This is a war of the future, fought not with tanks or missiles but with demographics. It is a true total war; that is, it is a war of extermination. It is a war in which only one side fights, so that side will win.

Demographic projections indicate that what happened to Zimbabwe and is now happening to South Africa will not be limited to the African continent.

Let Mariandra Heunis be the face of what liberal do-gooders did to South Africa and will do to the rest of the world if they are not stopped:

Former South African Police Take Part in Farm Attack

The difference between what is happening to whites in post-Apartheid South Africa and what happened to Jews in Nazi Germany is that the government in the former does not do the killing itself. At least, not yet. This incident comes close:

Intelligence and swift action by white farmers of Bethlehem in the Free State, South Africa to thwart a possible farm attack near Fouriesburg, revealed the potential involvement of the South African Police in the attack.

Two of the attackers were former black police officers. More and more assault firearms, such as R1 guns, are being used in farm attacks against whites. A source told [Free West Media] that an [R1] assault rifle, 15 rounds as well as a Norinco pistol with nine bullets were recovered in the vehicle in which the five black attackers had been travelling.

Freedom Front Plus attributes the increase in farm attacks to political rhetoric regarding the expropriation of white land.

Not all attacks are thwarted:

This week the mutilated body a 66-year-old white farmer was found next to his tractor on his farm near Piet Retief in Mpumalanga after a relative reported him missing. The farmer was struck repeatedly with a sharp object.

Moolman Meyer was last seen alive on his farm Waaihoek on Saturday.

His two employees are also missing. The sharp object was evidently a machete.

But no worries; Julius Malema, who appears to be driving the agenda politically, says he is not calling for extermination of the whites who built the country and who feed it “at least for now.”

Arnold Schwarzenegger Visits South Africa

We already knew that visiting the Rainbow Utopia is perilous. Turns out not even the Terminator is safe in anarchic post-Apartheid South Africa:

Arnold Schwarzenegger appears to have avoided serious injury after the 71-year-old former Governor of California was blindsided and dropkicked in the back while at an event in South Africa Saturday.

Here’s video:

Ahnold may be a raging RINO, but no one deserves this kind of treatment. Fortunately, it sounds like he is okay.

Let’s hope he at least managed to avoid the sewage-soaked beaches of Durban during his visit.

No word on whether the assailant got the Lamborghini he demanded.

South Africa Could Go Dark for Weeks

When South Africa was turned over to the African National Congress, Afrikaners must have asked themselves how long the lights would stay on. They now have an answer: not much longer.

Eskom officials said they are in a race against time to avoid a complete grid collapse and a national electricity blackout.

The electricity utility, the largest of South Africa’s government-owned enterprises, is falling back on massive load-shedding.

These extreme measures are needed because 17,000MW of Eskom’s 47,000MW installed capacity is not available for service due to unplanned breakdowns.

Also, there is a diesel shortage. If those in charge can’t keep military horses from starving, how are they going to keep power plants fed?

Energy advisor Ted Blom said a total blackout in South Africa is “totally possible”.

This will provide widespread opportunities for further wealth redistribution on a more informal basis than what the government has been doing.

A national blackout would result from demand exceeding supply, leading to cascading trip mechanisms. This would require restarting the power plants without electricity, which is called a “black start.” Expect the government to step in soon and forbid the use of such racist terms.

A black start would take 2 to 3 weeks. When the lights come back on, the scene they illuminate could be so hideous that people will want them back off again.

The Perils of a South African Vacation

If you are planning a vacation, may I suggest some place other than the rainbow utopia of post-Apartheid South Africa?

Guests at a holiday resort in northern KwaZulu-Natal had to be evacuated after an armed mob stormed the grounds and vandalised facilities [on December 21].

It is understood that the people, numbering in the hundreds and many of whom were armed with pangas, had pulled down a perimeter fence before swarming the Natal Spa resort near Vryheid.

That’s why walls are needed, not fences.

Pangas are machetes. The mob also wielded knobkerries, which are heavy wooden clubs with a knob on one end.

Police sources said the mob had threatened staff members, warning them to vacate their posts or face violence.

Guests were transported from the resort under guard while police negotiated with the mob.

When the police negotiate with a mob, the mob has already won.

As for the reason for the attack, manager Henk Barnard reported “rumors that the crowd was unhappy about the dismissal of certain staff [and] others were unhappy that they are not employed.”

In some cultures, those who seek employment fill out applications or send in résumés. But Africa has its own customs.

Encouragingly, 28 members of the mob were actually arrested.

If you really want to see African wildlife, stick to the safari tours. Staying at a holiday resort could be dangerous.

Future of South Africa Looks a Lot Like Genocide

Farm murders pile up one atop another, as predictable genocide unfolds in South Africa:

Nicolaas Strydom, 31, was shot dead when 12 men, pretending to conduct business, set upon the farm owner Johan Terblanche on Kleinensorgen on Sunday.

Strydom leaves a wife and three young children. He was their sole breadwinner.

The attack happened five days after a Bonnievale farming couple was found dead in their beds in what was believed to be a farm attack. …

“I think it’s high time to pack up and leave; there is no other way,” said a shattered Terblanche, fighting back tears.

Afrikaners will never get back the country they built over the course of centuries, now that they have been bullied by sanctimonious moonbats into giving it away. At least they can escape with their lives.

Or maybe not:

Julius Malema has warned that White South Africans must not be allowed to leave the country, otherwise they will poison the land and render it unproductive.

South Africa is run by the African National Congress; Malema’s Economic Freedom Fighters is still a minority party for now. However, EFF is already behind the wheel to some extent, as it seems to be driving the increasing radicalism of the ANC, which must struggle to keep up or lose relevance.

After white property is confiscated without compensation, the weeds that will grow where farms now flourish may be fertilized by the bodies of South Africa’s last productive farmers.

White Journalist Threatened with Death in South Africa

Time recently chose “the Guardians” as Person of the Year. These “Guardians” consist of endangered journalists. Jamal Khashoggi, who was murdered by his repressive government, is presented alongside the staff at the Capital Gazette killed by a demented hippy moonbat in an incident that was not politically motivated, but which Time dishonestly spins as a partisan assault on the liberal media. The cartoonishly obvious objective is to present journalists as heroes risking their lives to save civilization from countermoonbattery. There is no mention of Adriaan Basson, a journalist for South Africa’s News24, though he faces more danger than the self-aggrandizing propagandists at Time, to judge by a tweet from an Economic Freedom Fighters supporter calling himself “TshekoTsk”:

[TshekoTsk] was responding to a news article about Black First Land First (BLF) leader Andile Mngxitama’s call to kill white people over the weekend.

TshekoTsk said that although he had never agreed with Mngxitama on any issue before, this time he did, adding that “action” had to be devised to kill white people such as Basson, who has recently been very critical of the EFF leadership, particularly Julius Malema.

Basson has been referred to by Malema as a “racist thing.” When you get called a “racist” in South Africa, that means you are in big trouble for being white.

Since the liberal media establishment embodied by Time is largely responsible for whipping up international pressure for South Africa to turn itself over to the sort of people running it today, don’t expect any features on Basson, even if he ends up getting disemboweled.

South African MP: “Your Time Is Up, White People”

As South Africa moves forward with alteration of its constitution to allow confiscation of property from whites without compensation, Member of Parliament Hlengiwe Mkhaliphi shouts, “Your time is up, white people.”

Time was up for the people who settled the land and built South Africa into a First World nation the moment they turned it over to be looted to death by Nelson Mandela’s African National Congress.

Now the ANC is scrambling to keep pace with Mkhaliphi’s still more radical Economic Freedom Fighters. Time will soon be up for anyone in South Africa who appreciates having a food supply sufficient to feed the country.

In light of Africa’s exploding population and massive immigration to the West, let’s hope someone is learning from this. Recall Joe Biden’s enthusiastic prediction that whites will soon be a minority in the USA. A white minority will not be treated any better in the USA or Europe than in South Africa.

If we fail to close the immigration floodgates and to keep leftists from power, South Africa is blazing a trail to utter ruin that other nations will follow.

Lights Going Out in South Africa

Nothing could be more emblematic of the death of Western Civilization by moonbattery than the lights going out in South Africa.

State-owned Eskom Holdings provides most of the power in the rainbow utopia. It has announced that there could be rolling blackouts lasting into next year.

For South Africans, that means a return to stocking up on candles, mopping up thawed refrigerators and sitting in gridlocked roads around blank traffic lights. All of that became familiar in 2008, and again in 2015, when Eskom implemented months of the outages known locally as load shedding. Those cuts hamstrung the economy, limiting industrial output and hurting business and consumer confidence.

But the important thing is that no one can call you a racist after you have turned your country over to the African National Congress.

South African Government Wastes $21.3 Billion

R296 billion translates to $21,312,000,000 American. That’s how much the South African government has wasted in the past 5 years according to the latest report from the Auditor General. Highlights include:

• Just 23% of national government departments obtained clean audits in the year through March, down from 30% the year before.
• Unauthorized expenditure rose 38% to R2.1 billion, while fruitless and wasteful expenditure surged more than 200% to R2.5 billion.
• Government entities incurred R51 billion in irregular expenditure. That excludes R28.4 billion in irregular expenditure by state-owned companies that aren’t audited by the Auditor-General.
• Contracts worth R6.5 billion couldn’t be audited due to missing or incomplete information.

The trajectory is straight downward. Other findings:

• A 121% increase in irregular expenditure between 2014/15 and 2017/18.
• A 68% increase in unauthorised expenditure between 2014/15 and 2017/18.
• A 236% increase in fruitless and wasteful expenditure between 2014/15 and 2017/18.

Under black rule, the rainbow utopia is looting itself to death.

Evidence has accrued since the end of Apartheid that demographics do not permit full democracy in South Africa. If reproductive and immigration trends continue, the same will hold true for the rest of the West (see here, here, here, and here).
