    The author, although his intentions are possibly good, is a seriously misguided soul, in my opinion.
    Indeed, as he rightly states under the 'religion/witchcraft' banner - there ARE things he knows NOTHING about.
    Such as the fact that 90% of the clients of certain high-ranking witches/witchdoctors, are white (and mostly business people).
    This is Africa, people.

    There is definitely a financial collapse, the question is, has the collapse been spurred by the world financial debacle, or is the local collapse due to incompetence from the government and its policies?

    As a SME, I have definitely noted that there has been a decline in the manufacture of sophisticated products. In turn to remain in business, the level of sophisticated product has to be reduced to a lower level, or else one goes out of business.

    Personally I think it's negative, racist drivel - no more objective than a website that only documents the multitude of atrocities by whites against blacks under apartheid and fails to mention the underlying causes and paradigms.

    I think this page rather aptly demonstrates my point - The Battle of Blood River - a Case Study of African Fundamentals.
    While the style of writing may seem "objective" and "analytical", the content clearly demonstrates a distinct lack of objective analysis in my opinion. It seems to me that the author is hell bent on making the facts support his/her preconceived paradigm, rather than looking at the facts and then extrapolating the relevant paradigms of the parties involved.

    I'm sure it'll go down well on Stormfront, but personally I'd prefer not to pollute my mind spending too much time absorbing such white supremacist bile.
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    Maybe the author / owner of that website should try another tack - South-Africa-The-Real-SOLUTIONS.org

    It would be much more helpful.

    My opinion of what the REAL issues are in South Africa today (January 2013) having lived through intimate exposure to what is happening in terms of deep seated structural economic damage and increasingly harsh black-on-white racism that I have personally experienced.

    So how do we deal with racism? Tit-for-tat and escalate the bad or do we prove that we are not really so bad and can work/play together after all?
