Give them enough rope, and they’ll hang us all!



In philosophical, theological, or moral discussions, “corruption” basically boils down to spiritual or moral impurity (source). It transforms people into deceitful cunning beings, which in the Afrikaans language is simply called skelm. In English it is a fitting description for someone who is a “rascal” - synonymous with “rogue”, “cunning”, “crook”, “thief”, “villain” “scoundrel”, “thug”, “lawbreaker”, “outlaw”, “scallywag, and so forth.

Any person who exhibits immoral or dishonest behaviour stands the risk of being branded by any one or more of the above-mentioned descriptions, yet nowadays it is unfashionable to attach race to these descriptions, as it constitutes racism – a pathetic little word which, in South Africa, has now wholly and utterly become associated with white people only – usually under the guise of other clandestine terminology such as, “right-wingers”, “supremacists” or “those AWB people” - code names that are persistently and routinely associated with ‘stubborn’ Europeans who refuse to give up their spiritual and/or moral values.

Yet, it is exactly this contamination of moral values, together with the ‘stamp of approval’ given by the liberal mob and the mainstream media that has landed us in this horrible mess. It has become so widespread and ‘ordinary’ that people don’t even bother being discreet or polite anymore in the manner they speak or behave. Some have grown such big chips on their shoulders that they don’t even realize how racist their attitudes really are. They will, for example, impulsively show their contempt (Afr.: op hul pertjie spring) whenever an ideal opportunity arises, and quite often based purely on the fact that your skin-colour happens to be white.

This xenophobic phenomenon is particularly evident when you’re outnumbered by these scoundrels. I see this happening all the time… It’s like walking on eggshells. None of us humans are perfect - we all make mistakes, yet when a white person commits some-or-other misdemeanour, no matter how trivial, it is often blown totally out of proportion. It is the exact same tactic used in the ol’ apartheid days – and which eventually made South Africa the skunk of all nations. It is also quite evident that they’re pulling the same ol’ trick on Israel now, with pledges of support aimed at exposing Israel's apartheid and inhumane policies towards the Palestinian people… What a load of bollocks!

Whenever President Zuma, or any black ANC politician for that matter, delivers a public speech and talks about “our people” they are, 99 percent of the time, excluding the European citizens of South Africa, yet no one really seems to notice the blatant racism in this uncanny behaviour. The fact that “racism” or xenophobism (same thing) is behind many of the horrific murders taking place in this country, is another reality that the demonic liberal mob (which includes those idiots employed by 702 Talk Radio) would prefer to put out of sight and out of mind.

Of all the so-called democratically elected governments in this world the ANC must surely be the most egotistical, most arrogant - most racist, two-faced of the lot! Everything revolves around the ANC and the struggle waged by THEIR PEOPLE. It is always about THEM, and when they speak of leading people to a prosperous society, it is always THEIR PEOPLE who are going to be led – mostly at the expense of others, and mostly with a good dose of corruption as part-and-parcel of the covenant. This brings us to the next topic on the agenda of this posting…

The Corruption Perceptions Index – 2012

The Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) ranks countries and territories based on how corrupt their public sector is perceived to be. It is a composite index – a combination of polls – drawing on corruption-related data collected by a variety of reputable institutions. The CPI reflects the views of observers from around the world, including experts living and working in the countries and territories evaluated. It is published annually.

On a scale from 100 (highly clean) to 0 (highly corrupt), two-thirds of all countries scored below 50, indicating a serious corruption problem worldwide. The results also show, unsurprisingly, that the cANCer in South Africa’s government has got worse. It dropped from 64th place to 69 out of 176 countries on the corruption index, scoring 43 points. The least corrupt country in Africa is Botswana, with a score of 65. The full results can be viewed on www.transparency.org.

Corruption Perceptions Index Map – 2012

A cursory glance at the yellow regions on the above map clearly reveals that the “very clean” countries are located mainly in regions populated mostly by Europeans. Twelve (12) out of the top 25 most “clean” countries are located in Europe. Other countries listed in the top 25, and which are not located in Europe, include quite a number of countries with historical roots either deeply entrenched in European colonization such as, Canada, United States, and Australia, or countries with a parliamentary structure of government modelled after the British Westminster system, such as Singapore, Barbados, and the Bahamas.  Incidentally, Hong Kong, which also made it to the top 25 on the list with a score of 77, follows the English Common Law tradition – a legal system completely independent from the legal system of Mainland China, which did not make it to the top 25, with a score of 39.

How did the BRICS countries score?

Brazil: Rank 69 - Score 43 (Same as SA)
Russia: Rank 133 - Score 28
India: Rank 94 - Score 36
China: Rank 80 - Score 39
South Africa: Rank 69 - Score 43

Now, I wonder how many fans of the demonic liberal mob are going to label me racist for pointing out these facts!?!

I previously said (somewhere on this blog): “Give them enough rope, and they’ll hang themselves.” But, considering that the yearly CPI is revealing a serious corruption problem worldwide and showing a trend of degeneration as each year passes, maybe I should rephrase, and state: “Give them enough rope, and they’ll hang us all!”

In the end I suppose there’s no point in getting all worked up about the current dismal state of affairs in South Africa, or in the rest of the world for that matter -- definitely not at this time of the year when we’re supposed to be winding down!

Somehow I kind of disagree with this corruption index, I think some of those European countries are pretty corrupt themselves, especially since they help put in a criminal government in SA !

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.

Heritage Day Photographs (Voortrekker Monument) - Sept. 2013
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.
