World Rhino Day 2011

It is truly a sad state of affairs that we still have people living on this planet whose superstitious beliefs have created a black market for rhinoceros horn. Their immoral and absurd beliefs has reduced the world's rhino population by more than 90 percent over the past 40 years. – Source: “Rhino horn: All myth, no medicine", National Geographic, Rhishja Larson.

Besides rhino horn, the bizarre ingredients used in traditional Chinese medicine includes, among other bizarre things, tiger penis, turtle plastron, seahorses, snake oil, bear bile, and even human body parts and excreta, such as: human bones, fingernails, hairs, dandruff, earwax, feces, urine, and sweat. - Source

But as always – in a world ruled by satan, where everything works backwards, the root cause of the problem is never addressed. The scourge from the East has been a thorn in the flesh for mankind ever since God banished Cain to the East - (Gen. 4:16). Volumes can be written about this 6000-year old evil seed that spread like a contagious disease from the East, and how it has contaminated the planet. The few articles I’ve already published on this aspect only skims the surface. The most significant article is an old posting, called: “Painting a Picture of Evil” – (4 Part series). If you don’t want to read the entire series, I recommend you start at Part 3. You’ll not regret it – I promise!

Other notable articles on this blog are:

The subject is a controversial one, and borders on deep Biblical issues – a topic that is today fast becoming a most unpopular one, probably due to the fact that satan’s world works backwards. But then again, according to the Holy Scriptures, God did, in His awesome Spirit of non-discriminatory fair play, command that - “whosoever slayeth Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold.” – (Gen. 4:15)

The fact remains – there must be a reason for the proverb: “Nothing good comes from the East.” There is also a valid reason why the Qin Dynasty built the Great Wall of China. It was built to keep out the Xiongnu or Hun, a cruel and aggressive breed of race who worshiped the sun, moon, heaven, earth, and also communicated with their ancestors – (sound familiar!). They had shamans or medicine men who had great influence over the tribesmen. According to this source they mysteriously vanished from the face of the earth in A.D. 170, --- but I have my doubts!

So how do we address the problem of rhino killings?

It is far too late to exterminate people with superstitious beliefs, or Asians with penis and/or sex-drive problems… There wont be much people left on the planet if we do that! Killing the rhino poachers will also not help, because for every one poacher killed there will be 200 others waiting to take their place. (see: Killing them won't stop rhino poachers).

Re-educating Asians will not help either, because there are far too many of them, and they’re growing by the hour! Besides, the vast majority of Asians firmly believe that our Western cultures and beliefs are inferior to theirs. Many Westerners also believe this nonsense!  Legislation has proved ineffective, and so have high fences and other security measures.

Killing the rhino horn market is the only option left, but it seems that no one knows how to accomplish this effectively, without removing the rhino entirely from the face of the earth. The SA Hunters and Game Conservation Association (SAHGCA) has suggested that lifting the ban on the national trade of rhino horn will greatly contribute towards ending the mindless slaughter of rhinos.

Dr Herman Els, SA Hunters’ Manager for Hunting and Conservation emphasises that the only viable option South Africa has to keep rhinos alive is to allow the harvesting and trade of rhino horn in a controlled manner initially in the RSA and thereafter internationally. A rhino’s horn grows back within two to three years, which means that the same animal can reproduce its horn several times in its lifetime, without any harm to the animal itself. – (more info here). Now this sounds like a practical solution to the problem!

It’s a real pity that modern society has little regard for hunters in general, and tend to treat their suggestions and recommendations with the same loathsome attitude this blog has for Cain’s followers.  BTW: - Was it not the Chinese who invented gunpowder?

Another article worthwhile looking into, and which should provide some food for thought, is Mike Smith’s posting, called: Lives of white farmers worth less than that of animals.

You wrote a whole post without much racially loaded content (except that aimed at Asian). Well done.

The "legalisation" of trade in Rhino Horn may actually work. The same was done for Elephant Ivory and the poaching of Elephant declined quite remarkably. It only works if everyone buys in though as you are then able to buy "legitimate" 100% legal horns at considerably less risk than buying illegal horns. The cost however is driven by demand, although studies seem to suggest that the legal ivory is more expensive than the poached variety due to it's highly sought after "cannot arrest me" status.

As for the scourge of the east... Well, we only need to look north to see the "benefits" the Chinese bring to a country. Wealth for the connected, minerals for themselves and bullets for striking workers who slowly get starved to death on less than minimum wage.

Chinese shop owners are opening up everywhere here subsidised by the Chinese government. They are here on the most part illegally and engage in all sorts of illegal trade. They also work in sindicates. They are running many people out of business as they live in their shops, don't hire any help etc. Some people might admire this way of worshipping saving every cent you have and dedicating your every second of life to thepursuit of hapiness, but our western quality of life is non sustainable competint with this ethos. We like to take holidays, see sights, play sports, read books and engage in a whole variety of things whose purpose is pleasure not single minded money grabbing.

Operation Vula, its Secret Safari, and Zuma’s band of comrades - Dec. 2013
During 1986 the ANC launched an underground operation called Operation Vula. A lesser-known fact is that it continued to operate after Nelson Mandela's release in February 1990, and for three years after his speech in August 1990 when he reiterated the total commitment of the ANC, Umkhonto we Sizwe and the SACP to the Groote Schuur Minute.

This posting includes a few photographs taken on Heritage Day 2013. The posting introduces an unusual but beautiful new structure called QUO VADIS? (with the question mark) which I’m sure many readers have never heard of.

The Yellow-Bucket Marula Tree: A Mystery Solved! - Oct. 2013
I came across a rather strange phenomenon one day while travelling along the R561 route between Tolwe and Baltimore in the Limpopo province of South Africa. A small yellow bucket was attached high-up in a branch of a Marula tree, hence the name of this posting. It’s a real funny story which I’m sure most readers will enjoy - as much as I enjoyed compiling the article  - (with illustrations).

Pretoria’s Monument for Victims of Terrorism - July 2013
Many people (including myself) had almost forgotten about a noteworthy monument in Pretoria that stood at the entrance of the old Munitoria building on the corner of Van der Walt and Vermeulen Streets (now renamed Lilian Ngoyi and Madiba Streets). When the Munitoria building was demolished on 7 July 2013 nobody could tell me whether the monument was still standing or not, so I decided to go look for myself.

Remembering The Battle of Delville Wood - July 2013
14 July marks a day when the South African 1st Infantry Brigade got engaged in the 1916 (WW1) Battle of the Somme, in France. The battle was one of the largest of World War I, in which more than a million men were wounded or killed, making it one of humanity's bloodiest battles. One specific encounter during this battle, known as The Battle of Delville Wood, is of particular importance to South Africa. The posting includes a comprehensive article (with pictures) compiled and written by Petros Kondos.
