Holy nutsack of Christ : Again with Zimbabwe !
A poster commented :
as a Zimbabwean, I agree with this blog site...almost all countruies have gotten better over the years. the media targets specific areas and creates a new reality.
zimbabwe is thriving. comrade Mugabe is always made to look bad in the eyes of the western proaganda media. Zimbabwe is better now than it ever was under white rule.
i'm sick of the racist media making blacks look bad...there arent any countries that are worse off now than before. all countries improve.
Firstly some advice.
Sarcasm only works when it's obvious to the other party, through the claims that you are making, that their own claims are proportionally absurd. If one was to make the statement, "An elephant is larger than a mouse"... And you were to in a loud drawn out and irritating voice to propose "Oh yes, of course an elephant is bigger than a mouse !Obviously ! And an ant is bigger than a mouse too ! Ants are Huge ! Elephants are tiny !" ...you'd be doing it wrong and it would lose it's affect. Do you understand ?
Other than "Afrikaaner" another definition of stupidity is to repeat the same behaviour and expect different results. To try and compare Zimbabwe to South Africa : Once again one the poorest country in Africa , and the other the richest country. One the most democratic and the other the most autocratic ....is stupid. You can do it over and over and over and it will still remain untrue. Anyone who ever catches themselves comparing South Africa to Zimbabwe needs to give themselves a serious smack through the face , or at least let me do it for you. What else do you compare ? Is the Australian cricket team just like the Boksburg club 6th's ?
The notion that South Africa and Zimbabwe have anything in common exists in the strange imagination of neurotic whitey South Africans. There were fears that the A.N.C were going to do land grabs as far back as 1992 and to this day they have never materialized and never will beyond voluntary and well reimbursed expropriation. In fact if you took the time to ask you'd know that this is directly opposite to what the leadership in the A.N.C have proposed precisely because they do not want a situation similar to what happened in Zimbabwe.
While we are at it, let's also put to bed the myth that it was because a few white farmers left Zimbabwe that it all crashed to the floor. I'm sorry folks but the idea that a few Zimbabwean white tobacco farmers were such brilliant macro economists that they kept the entire Zimbabwean economy afloat ( with their simple presence in the country) is one cooked up by the most ridiculous ignorance. It may have been the catalyst that finally revealed Mr Mugabe’s insanity and bad governing but the Zimbabwean economic collapse is part of a much bigger picture.
I've often adhered to the old saying that " If you can't serve as a good example to others, then it's your duty to serve as a horrible warning".When it comes to Zimbabwe people try and remember that is not an example to our government. It's just that... a horrible warning. It doesn't take rocket science to govern. All you need to do is look at Zimbabwe and do the opposite and you're on the right track. It's precisely because we're not like Zimbabwe that we have had the successes we've seen in recent years.
