Hindsight: The insignificant civil servant

In any circumstances wherein unforeseen problems crops up one is bound to analyze the situation comprehensively in an effort to make sense of what is happening. Perhaps to a certain extend it dulls the nerves a little bit when we think we have found the source of our troubles, even if we are wrong, there is a cold comfort in suspicion and strength in isolating a challenge.… Read More Hindsight: The insignificant civil servant

Hindsight: A good story to tell, a promise to take up arms and nothing to offer

The problem of the blues, the Democratic Alliance, is that while their ideology of equal opportunity for all and abolishment of cronyism is sound they cannot wish away the fact that in order to have an outright win of the black hearts and minds and eventually, votes come 3 August, they will have to be committed to the cause of continuing to lift black people out of poverty.… Read More Hindsight: A good story to tell, a promise to take up arms and nothing to offer

#theWriterlyBugJuice(v)31/03/16-The Shadow of the big boss

  Critical distance affords those who watch unfolding events from a distance a vantage viewpoint. For the actors in the unfolded events only in hindsight can they make sense of the nexus of those events. We were not actually sure but it was there, like a hunch that everybody feels at the same time but… Read More #theWriterlyBugJuice(v)31/03/16-The Shadow of the big boss

Hindsight: A *stand-Off/us vs the rest

It is possible to have a peaceful warm welcoming South Africa. The center of power should safeguard the lively hood of South Africans society, educationally and economically; after all it is South Africans who have voted it into that highest rung. Since these two tenets of modern society are complementary, that is education and economy; there is no reason why an ordinary hard working South African should not feel secured in his homeland even when he is competing with a skilled foreigner provided they are competing on a leveled field. At the heart of xenophobia is fear of domination by the other. I cannot overstate further wherein the solution lies¶… Read More Hindsight: A *stand-Off/us vs the rest

Hindsight: South Africa, it is time to Study Apartheid

We need to study Apartheid, we need to acknowledge it formally for what it was pre-democratic South Africa. And to what it is in post-Apartheid South Africa. Only when we have looked closely at it as a policy, better still, when we look at it as an Ideology our South African society through which the various ideological state apparatuses such as religion, economy and education are deployed to entrench it will we appreciate just how damaging it can be/it has been to the South African national psyche… Read More Hindsight: South Africa, it is time to Study Apartheid

The point of @ (distort[ed]) ‘Message’

Virtual communication or social networking interaction which I believe began with the sms creates a parallax when those who read what you are saying cannot follow you or misread what you are trying to say. In other words what could have can be a simple message creates more questions than it instructs or clarifies. The youngsters take very warmly and easily to this sort of communication. If you ask any young bloke out there they will tell you that since being a student comes with its own financial constrains it is easier to constrict words to an almost encrypted code so that instead of sending two to three sms’s you need to just send one, it is economical viable. Some purists have argued that the long-term effect of this improvisation is that one loses their writing skills as well as grammatical sensibilities.… Read More The point of @ (distort[ed]) ‘Message’

Freedom

The cheer force with which the stink bug or the locust would fight you gave off such a sensation of might in the palms of your hands yet one recognised that the insect also exerted a form of power to which if there was a loss of concentration in your palms it would escape and regain its freedom. It would be very difficult when you loose a dark green locust amongst the greened shrubs as it was camouflaged immediately due to its cloak.… Read More Freedom
