Like many other unfortunate promises from the ANC and Mandela in 1994, the promises of an "Afrikaner-state" were seriously considered to placate
whites, but were then silently trashed - a bit like the once promised RDP (Reconstruction and Development Program).
However, the dream is alive in the success of Orania. This success cannot be denied, either from the right or the radical left.
For anybody familiar with South Africa (especially the geography), I'd love to know where a wider ethnic-based white state can be created?
Some say it is already happening with a kind of "flocking together" in the Western Cape.
A number of theorists agree with this, and that we should co-operate with the local colored people.
The black peoples never lived here (they'd say) and should be brought back to their tribal lands (which they settled from the Congo, mostly in the
17th century) while all whites and coloreds should be welcomed here.
What is generally agreed upon is that we need a river and a port (access to the sea).
The ANC and their immigrants from African hell-holes (and dictators like Mugabe whom they openly support) can have the rest.
I'd love to hear more on this, or any discussions.
They say Israel is smaller than the Kruger Park (a game reserve).
So, this imaginary state would not take up much space.
Once established it will not be aggressive, but rather philanthropic and defensive.
This is how many see the coming white state.
