Somethings in the world are worth preserving. Figs for example. Others ? Well....not so much.
Take the Afrikaans language and culture for example. I often read and hear about Afrikaans people complaining that their culture and language are being taken away from them. This is incredibly strange to me because it's the equivalent of a cancer patient moaning because they're taking a tumour removed !
If one had to pin point the single most responsible thing for ensuring that Afrikaaners were some of the most despised repugnant beings in the known universe, one need look no further than their culture and language.
Get over it dutchies ! It's for your own good that your culture is being taken away. It's for the lack of a better word a crap culture. It's not so much a culture as the celebration of pure ignorance and stupidity. Being afrikaans basically comprises of being a hateful twat (except drunker). It alienates you from the rest of humanity who have joined the 21st century, embraced the idea that "thinking" is desirable and frankly realised that progress is a good thing. Every day you remain stubbornly afrikaans is a day that people hate you.
With that in mind I ask a serious question: What exactly is it you are holding on to ? Why would you want to continue making total fat arses of yourself by perpatuating afrikaans culture ? Surely you want to better yourselves and educate yourselves by rejecting your backwards babarian way of thinking and acting ? Surely you want to strive for some form of human dignity ?
So here's an idea. Instead of defending with all your might that thing that holds you back as a people (ie : your god-awful culture and language) just let it go. Everyone will like you more and maybe even think of you as a human being. It's free advice...use it/don't use it.
Peace and love
