Freedom to …

…from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger

 It is about twenty years since South Africa‘s black population won its freedom from the oppressive white minority rule, as The Guardian and its repeater stations like ABC, The Age, The Sydney Morning Herald etc. tell us. So how are they going, free to do whatever they want?

In the year ending March 2014 South Africa recorded about 17,000 murders, a 5 percent increase over the previous year. That is an average of 47 murders per day. General Riah Phiyega, the national police commissioner, said,“Murder and some other kinds of violent crime are difficult for police to stop because most cases involve people who know each other.“

Perhaps people should get more alienated.

On the nutrition front they are also doing well. According to Lancet about 70% of adult females and 40% of adult males are overweight or obese. Similarly, 25% of female and 20% of male children are fat. South African Human Sciences Research Council’s survey showed that 88% of 25,500 people interviewed said that the body image they deemed ideal was fat*. Thank God for that – if it were a problem Michelle Obama would have to come up with some catchy hash-tag.

As far as AIDS is concerned, another Lancet study claims that: “In Kwazulu-Natal, for example, the rate of infection in boys at, or just out of school, rises slowly only as the get older, from 1% in those under 15 to 1.8% in those over 20. In girls, it raises from 2.5% to 24.7%.”

Only a quarter ? What’s the problem? quill.1

*/ I do not know. Should I be proud that nine out of ten South Africans would approve my physique?

About Antisthenes

A Greek philosopher, a pupil of Socrates. Led a revolt, with Diogenes, against the demands of the city-state and the sophistication of life. Accepted the interrelation of knowledge, virtue, and happiness; and sought the ideal condition for happiness in return to primitivism and self-sufficiency. Rejected all social distinctions as based on convention, scorned orthodox religion as a fabrication of lies, and studied early legends and animal life in order to arrive at a true understanding of natural law. The individual was free and self-sufficient when he was master of his passions, secure in his intelligence, impervious to social or religious demands, and satisfied with the poverty of a mendicant. Needless to say, a person who on the Fog of Chaos adopted the Athenian philosopher's name has nothing whatsoever in common with him.

    They are not doing that well. I wonder why? Am I racist?

    The Left doesn’t care. It is the politics, not human lives. Their record shows that clearly.

    Methinks they need sharia.
