Very kind mr Jerk clearly you're not lol
Let me ask Trust another question if I may, had the black power revolution in the 60's in the US resulted in untold poverty unemployment and
starvation for the whites, displaced by similar rules and laws now imposed in SA, would you still be saying bah just poor whites who cares its the
same all over etc?
Its so easy for us to distance ourselves from atrocities. With the advent ot tv and then the internet, people see atrocities constantly. People now
have allegedly more information than they ever had and perhaps it is exactly that influx of information images and the like that has hardened us to
the plights of others. We often pass the buck to the likes of the UN and various charities thinking that's where the road ends, but in cases where we
the US or UK or any other foreign power actively assist in overthrowing a government we
believe is wrong and then leaving them to it,sure that
also is wrong. We have a moral duty and responsibility to ensure that the legacy we leave behind is not only just and fair for all but also in line
with that countries own social & cultural beliefs NOT our own.
I do think that something should be mentioned regarding colonisation and the USA. The US is quite unique in the way it adopted colonisation in that it
didn't spread its wings and colonise other countries as did the Europeans, rather it brought the colonies to the US particularly with the historical
slave trade. In a way, is not uprooting people and bringing them to you the same as you going to them and living there? The trauma and hatred and
disolving of traditional roots and values happens all the same. This universalism attitude that all shall think live act believe and speak as I do is
inherent it seems in any large powerful country.
