Barring a dramatic turnaround, modern South Africa offers us a glimpse into America’s dystopian future:
“A quarter of a century ago black South Africans were living in squalor while most whites lived the good life in apartheid-era South Africa.
Nelson Mandela was released from prison in 1990 and four years later he took over as President from F W De Klerk and the pair shared the Nobel Peace Prize.
Apartheid – a grotesque and brutal form of government in which whites held all the power and blacks and other racial groups were segregated and oppressed – was condemned to the dustbin of history.
Nowadays there is a strange form of equality.
While the black South African middle class has grown and many live in big houses, with swimming pools and drive around in BMWs like their white peers; many poor whites live in squalid squatter camps just like their black peers. …
The South African Defence Force – which had 82,000 men under arms in 1986 – was disbanded in 1994.
The South African Army now has half that many men, and the majority are black.
The boot is well and truly on the other foot and few white South Africans relish a career in the armed forces.
The number of white South Africans has fallen slightly in recent years as some emigrate to New Zealand and Australia.”
This is why I wake up and do this every day.
As Southern Future recently pointed out, the dystopia we see in South Africa is the ultimate refutation of the “worse is better” theory. There are a number of other places in the world like South Africa where White minorities cling on as well … Barbados, Jamaica, Zimbabwe, Brazil, much of Latin America, etc.
