What Is The Level of Your Commitment: Let's Explore Our Truth
Recently I wrote an article where I sought to explore whether South Africans are prepared to help their own. This "help" was suggested could be in the form of a trust fund. There were no concrete ideas put forward, as it was just a concept. More specifically, though, I had a feeling that typically we would not support the notion, but I wanted confirmation.
True to form the trap was sprung, and there were no surprises. The idea, although embraced by some, displayed the usual infighting and, disappointingly, was ignored by the majority. Not only did the article go down like a lead balloon, but the results were confirmed via a poll.
I posed the question; "If ILuvSA launched a Trust Fund for victims of crime, managed through the blog, would you support such an initiative?"
What were the results? 35% said they would donate something monthly, which is the most important category if any form of help is to be sustainable. Wow, we might collect as much as R1,000 per month. 30% said it would be a scam; nice one, and 21% offered moral support, no jokes. A whopping 43 people voted out of 20,000 visitors and over 400 regular readers. So it is safe to conclude that there was a silent majority. In other words, let us form an opinion once the results are in, so that we can follow the sheeple.
But let's look at the numbers for a moment. On 2 February 1990, 68.73% of the voters chose to hand over power to a black government. This from a record turnout of 85.1% of voters. Amazing. So it was fine to overwhelmingly vote to get ourselves into the mess we find ourselves in, yet forget about any efforts to help our fellow countrymen get out of the mess they find themselves in, and our readers are supposedly a targeted (as in marketing not genocide) group.
This blog has explored many alternatives to the present situation we find ourselves in; emigration, secession, civil war, capitulation, genocide and others. I was once rebuked for underestimating the power a blog likes this has. I don't think so. It has no power, other than some bizarre entertainment value. South Africa was doomed from the outset, and has virtually a zero probability of providing a solution to white South Africans. I have grown tired of tough talking, impotent and emasculated South Africans. Aside from a tiny minority, the majority of white South Africans just couldn't give a fuck about their mates. When you emigrate you will get screwed by South Africans faster than helped, and you will be largely left on your own to figure things out. Make no mistake, Saffers will be quick to drink a dop with you, but offer assistance, fuck that.
The same applies back home. We will decry the excesses, vulgarities, incompetence et al of the ruling ANC, but support a rates boycott, or sacrifice a little bit of your time for your neighbourhood watch or give some of your money. Fuck that, too much effort. This blog is maintained by a handful of bloggers, we have asked repeatedly for blogging assistance, fuck that, too much effort. Let somebody else do it, but don't mind if I tell you what a doos you are, and to watch your back.
Currently we are running a poll on how you would have voted during the 1990 Referendum. Check it out. Facebook and Alexa stats tell us that the majority of our readers are older than 35, yet get this. Most voters on the poll were too young to vote. Kak. Nobody wants to admit to having voted Yes.
Also, in one day we have had more voters than our previous poll. We are more concerned about how we would have voted; a kind of revisionist history thing. "If it was up to me, I wouldn't have fucked SA up" kind of thing. I was in my 20s when we voted, and I voted Yes. Not because I was seduced by some liberal utopian vision, but because of the futility of trying to hold back a massive aspirant black population. Perhaps if I had known how many white lives would be lost, it may have made me hesitate for a moment, but ultimately nothing would have changed. Africa doesn't want us. But it doesn't matter what my thinking was, or what my current philosophy is. What matters is that South Africa is fucked. White South Africans, be it English versus Afrikaans, or Boer versus Afrikaner, cannot stand together like the Jews. This is an old shortcoming of ours.
As for the blog, it is as strong as the amount of time contributors are prepared to sacrifice. Something most of you know nothing about. It has over 70,000 hits per month, over 400 daily readers, there are over 370 Twitter followers and over 80 Facebook supporters. All of this was by design, not luck. Yet I don't see the purpose of this blog, other than to provide a macabre kind of entertainment. So go ahead and knock yourselves out. Suck on this entertainment fountain until you have had your fill, and then go and watch your rugby, cricket or jukskei. Don't bother calling your neighbour of 5 years, and asking what his name is, because you just don't care, and neither do I.
So take this as my, sort of, swan song. I may contribute in the future, or maybe not. But I am certainly not going to mine the depths looking for solutions. If you are in my part of the world, you won't know who I am, but I am the one on the "ego trip" that helps in a myriad ways.
