    Up until, or on the day, a predictable calamity unfolds in South Africa, you still find Western Media insisting that, No, there's no racial component to the butchering of thousands of white rural folks in ways that would make Shaka Zulu proud. No, the mutilated, tortured, white bodies of Boer and British men, women and...

    Not true. The Khoi San indigenous peoples were nomads whose territory ranged from Southern Angola to the Cape of Good Hope. They were hunter gatherers who did not grow food crops of any kind and constructed minimalist grass huts for shelter.

    The Negroid Bantu peoples started to move south long after the Dutch landed in the Cape and imported farmers from Holland to provide food stocks for their trading ships rounding the Cape sailing to and from the East Indies.

    The land was extremely poor for farming and many gave up and asked to return to Holland or go to the East Indies. The few who remained traded with the Khoi and some intermarried thus the origins of the Afrikaner and the Afrikaans language which is basic Dutch combined with African languages and a smattering of English. It is the only language that can be read and understood by two different languages.

    As with their language so progressed their farming methods. Within a short space of time they learned to tame this inhospitable land and turned it into a land of bounty, in much the same way the Israelis have done.

    The Bantu peoples settled in the Eastern Cape and Natal bringing with them their cattle and practiced subsistence farming, moving on to new pastures when the land became exhausted. They built no permanent structures but did establish large villages comprising of single storey mud huts.

    They traded with the new African tribe called Afrikaaners for food and trinkets and thus began the Bantu population explosion in tandem with the massive expansion of commercial farming.

    No one stole any land from anyone!

    Post 1994 the new democratic government began to buy white farms on the agreed willing seller willing buyer system agreed in the constitutional negotiations. These farms were handed over to supporters of the ruling party who sold off anything movable and either left the farms to go to rack and ruin or in a few cases leased the farm back to a white farmer, often the original owners. There have of course been a few success stories but not enough to give substance to any prospect of sufficient food production in the event all the white farmers abandon South Africa.

    Take the unfortunate Zimbabwe paradigm. Mugabe simplistically considered that replacement of the few white farmers with thousands of people with no farming skills on small parcels of land would work. It didn't, Zimbabwe went from being a net exporter of food to a major importer, mainly from South Africa.

    The one area in Zimbabwe's agricultural revolution that did flourish was tobacco which was easy to grow on the small holdings but nowhere near the levels previously produced.

    The new leaders of Zimbabwe, President Manangagwa did not mince words when he told his people that he was giving back the farms to their previous owners. He said and I quote him , "If the white man had never come to Africa, the black people would still be dressed in animal skins and living in huts".

    Many of the expelled Zimbabwean farmers were grabbed by Angola, Zambia Nigeria and myriad other countries. Zambia for instance was an importer of food, now it exports food to Zimbabwe. Angola, who also imports massive quantities of food from South Africa, is less dependant.

    Which brings me to my last point. It's not just the people of South Africa that will suffer starvation if the white farmers leave, it will be the whole of Southern Africa. Every country in Southern Africa will be affected. Botswana being a desert country imports most of it's food from South Africa, there's no alternative source of food for an expanding urban population that's lost its ability to live off the land.

    The platitude that white farmers should be dispossessed and forced to work for the new black farmers is not realistic. There's also the very probable repercussion that they will revolt with support from the most unexpected quarters.

    “The Negroid Bantu peoples started to move south long after the Dutch landed in the Cape and imported farmers from Holland to provide food stocks for their trading ships rounding the Cape sailing to and from the East Indies. ”

    That is simply untrue, the Xhosa, which are part of what you call the “Negroid Bantus” were occpupying the land, the southeastern part of South Africa (Eastern Cape), long before the Dutch settled and had contacts with the Khoisans.
    It can be seen today in their genetics (they are part Khoisan) and in their language (presence of “clicks” which can only be found in Bantus languages found in southern Africa.

    By land theft, I'm assuming you mean by white settlers, right?

    These farms did not exist before white settlers. They have been the ones who have invested blood, sweat and tears for over 300 years to make the land productive. For the ANC and its cronies, who have contributed absolutely nothing to this development, to snatch these farms away is theft.

    Pres. Trump and other defenders of Western Civilization should arm these farmers to protect themselves, and sanction the ANC if necessary.

    I take it you’re opposed to the flood of third-world immigration to Europe and America and agree that it should be reversed?
     
    Absolutely. But there is exception for people invited in. So illegals must go. But it is unjust to expel those invited, or forced over.

    That said, I am all for making payments and giving one-way tickets for certain people to renounce their citizenship.

    Incidentally, most of what is now South Africa was unpopulated when the white man came and made it productive.
     
    Yes, this is common refrain of the invaders. Sorry, not biting. Just basic logic tells you there was no good land unoccupied in the 1700s in Africa. No doubt it was more sparsely populated than today, but so was Europe.

These farms were handed over to supporters of the ruling party who sold off anything movable and either left the farms to go to rack and ruin or in a few cases leased the farm back to a white farmer, often the original owners. There have of course been a few success stories but not enough to give substance to any prospect of sufficient food production in the event all the white farmers abandon South Africa.

    Take the unfortunate Zimbabwe paradigm. Mugabe simplistically considered that replacement of the few white farmers with thousands of people with no farming skills on small parcels of land would work. It didn’t, Zimbabwe went from being a net exporter of food to a major importer, mainly from South Africa.

    The one area in Zimbabwe’s agricultural revolution that did flourish was tobacco which was easy to grow on the small holdings but nowhere near the levels previously produced.

    The new leaders of Zimbabwe, President Manangagwa did not mince words when he told his people that he was giving back the farms to their previous owners. He said and I quote him , “If the white man had never come to Africa, the black people would still be dressed in animal skins and living in huts”.

    Many of the expelled Zimbabwean farmers were grabbed by Angola, Zambia Nigeria and myriad other countries. Zambia for instance was an importer of food, now it exports food to Zimbabwe. Angola, who also imports massive quantities of food from South Africa, is less dependant.

    Which brings me to my last point. It’s not just the people of South Africa that will suffer starvation if the white farmers leave, it will be the whole of Southern Africa. Every country in Southern Africa will be affected. Botswana being a desert country imports most of it’s food from South Africa, there’s no alternative source of food for an expanding urban population that’s lost its ability to live off the land.

    The platitude that white farmers should be dispossessed and forced to work for the new black farmers is not realistic. There’s also the very probable repercussion that they will revolt with support from the most unexpected quarters.

    "The Negroid Bantu peoples started to move south long after the Dutch landed in the Cape and imported farmers from Holland to provide food stocks for their trading ships rounding the Cape sailing to and from the East Indies. "

    That is simply untrue, the Xhosa, which are part of what you call the "Negroid Bantus" were occpupying the land, the southeastern part of South Africa (Eastern Cape), long before the Dutch settled and had contacts with the Khoisans.
    It can be seen today in their genetics (they are part Khoisan) and in their language (presence of "clicks" which can only be found in Bantus languages found in southern Africa.

    I think Rwanda and a few smaller, resource-rich black countries are relatively ok. A friend worked as a doctor in Botswana; extreme under-development, but he liked it.

    Past is messy and any group can weave a story selecting only facts that suit them. The apartheid was established to keep different groups living apart, with whites on the top. The problem was not as much the apartheid, as the one-sided deal that the ruling whites offered to the blacks. Whites took the best land, water resources, minerals, a lot more land than their numbers. That's what happens when a 'deal' is done with one side having all the power. Today Israel is trying to force similar deal on the Palestinians. Over time demographics undermines most one-sided deals.

    Boers and British in S Africa would had been better off being more realistic. Take the Cape, some inland compact areas where they had majority, bring in displaced whites from Zimbabwe, Angola, etc... draw defensible borders. Give the blacks something substantial, valuable, something they can claim - maybe Natal, Rand or the area around Port Elisabeth. That required a sacrifice by many whites and instead naive idealism took over. Now they are f...ed.

    Lesson? Don't aspire to more than you can handle, political gluttony is usually fatal.

    The lesson is no never give up power. The Boers didn’t bite off more than can chew. They gave up power.

    You didn’t mention the decades of forced expropriation by the white-socialist apartheid government under the Land Act and the Group Areas Act. During the 1960s and 1970s, Sophiatown, Pageview and District Six were all ethnically cleansed by the apartheid government, and their black, coloured and Indian inhabitants were displaced and sent to ethnic ghettos so that poor whites could live in those places. Those are the best-known examples, but there are many, many more.

    Group rights were put into the SA Constitution at the behest of Afrikaner interests, so they could preserve their “volk”.

And your idea is to bring them here? Thinking they’ll piss off white SJWs and negroes?

    What we should be doing is encouraging Wakanda by repatriation and restoration of our American negroes to the real Wakanda in SA. It’s a “first world nation” “built by Africans” isn’t it? So encourage them to go and keep building it. Let them do whatever they wish with the idiot whites who created that mess, who cares?

    The reason Africa does not develop might be what an African in a German TV docu said 'die Weissen können nicht einfach herumsitzen', translation 'the whites are unable to hang around'.

    What we see with the migrants is that they can.
    After being here for eight years they still do not speak the language, do not work, but do state that they want to work.

    Writing this I'm remembering that, long ago, a DDR man who had succeeded in going to then W Germany.
    He was asked what he found of W Germany, he said 'had I known I had to work so hard here, I would have stayed'.

Your contention that the Blacks overwhelmingly supported sanctions in SA is not exactly true. A majority did, but it was not overwhelmingly so. Apart from which, what would the average Black peasant have understood about economics. I say that as a statement of fact, not as a racial slur.

    Reagan’s veto was overturned as more than 2 thirds of congress voted in favour of sanctions.

    However, what really put the squeeze on the SA economy was the recalling of foreign loans, primarily from US financial institutions.

    Student sit-ins and private boycotts? Balderdash!

    The USSR, Cuba or other African states had no bearing whatsoever on political change in SA. After the South African involvement in the Angolan war had ended, we had zero dealings with any of these countries, be it economic, military or anything else.

    I am unclear how to respond here. I would love to lambaste the current government for permitting unfairness. But i don't know one redresses apartheid. Amnesty lasted as long as Pres. Mandela was alive.


    But amnesty has not outlived the consequences of apartheid. My concern here Miss Mercer, is that you really don't a grasp on the what apartheid meant in application. Slavery and its aftermath is a tragic commentary on US democracy in every way, But i have to be honest, It may pale in comparison to the apartheid practiced throughout Africa. I don't know what the measure is for such injustice. And allow me to be clear, the injustice is predicated not colonialism, but on a system that was predicated on lifting people up, that proclaimed fairness, justice and godlness, but actually practiced everything to the opposite -- and icing their cake with validations from God.

    Here's a take on Pres. Mandela and South Africa:

    http://www.unz.com/pgiraldi/spying-for-apartheid/

    If that comparison is correct, then I am loath to prop myself on a high horse to condemn South Africa, just as I am loathe to support Israel's behavior in Palestine. We are talking about a very very nasty practice --- and how any white South African could have passed and walked to church any day of the week to praise a loving God and embrace a forgiving Jesus -- both of whom hated injustice and hypocrisy -- I in good conscience --- as much as I have come to appreciate your growing conscience -- this is a bridge I could not cross with you, l'est a lightening strike consume me at the first step.

    If Pres Mandela's take is correct (as noted by Dr. Giraldi) -- you need not express an iota of regret for your father's rumored efforts against it --- no sincere person of conscience could do otherwise.

    People the world round handed down their property to their family members since time inmemoriam
     
    False. Are you utterly ignorant or purposefully spreading lies? Private property is at most a few thousands years old, when human history spans maybe 200,000 years. It developed when a few greedy thugs took something for themselves and killed those who challenged them. Over time they became the "kings" and "lords" of the world and enslaved everybody else (serfdom was, essentially, slavery). Even then it was not absolute, at any time one group of thugs ("kings") could attack another group of thugs ("other kings") and take their land and enslave their serfs. This is the "noble" (pun intended) history of private property to which you refer. But even during those periods there were many societies which did not succumb to the usurpers. See e.g. http://www.henrygeorge.org/pchp29.htm And even in recent years ideologies have emerged that would undo that travesty, such as communism. I am more for a middle ground, allow private property, have no income tax whatsoever (do not punish laborers), but put a heavy tax on inheritance.

    it doesn’t even have a unique place in any economic system.
     
    Perhaps you can prove me "wrong" with an exception but economic systems that have private property start out as (or, in case of US, end up as - there were special factors in the conquest of US land that allowed an initial wide distribution of property) centralized oligarchic systems that are not democratic, fair, or just. But murder is even more widespread in economic systems, I suppose you will sing the praises of murder next? Fact is there hasn't been, and currently isn't, anything close to a "just" economic system. Even in the "shining light" of the US, .1% of the people, most of whom have done nothing with their lives, own 99% of the wealth. I am ready for revolution. Just tell me the time and place. This evil system must end. And if Communism is the only alternative, I will not support it, but Communism it will be. The current unjust system simply cannot last. (And Trump the oligarch reducing inheritance tax - fuck that Orangutan.)

    In other words, either there will be a just distribution of wealth in society, or a new group of "kings" (thugs) will destroy the current group of "other kings" (thugs) and take what was their's. Usually this is accomplished by promising a significant portion of the "spoils" to the commoners (no sweat off their back, right?).

    I don’t think you understand what is meant by meek.
     
    "Meekness is humility toward God and toward others. It is having the right or the power to do something but refraining for the benefit of someone else. " The oligarchs are selfish cold mass-murderers and oppressors in this world. Thugs. They are the opposite of meek. They are the spawn of Satan. Including Oprah and uber-hypocrite Buffet. By their selfish acts they have chosen sides.

    No. my view of the commonly held view and practice. Let’s not play tiddle winks. You are making the accusation the burden is on you to prove that inheritance is not a standard practice round the world.

    I will skip and ignore the childishness of name calling. Let’s just suffice it to say, your comments reflect the issues (some of them about inheritance) it does not in any way diminish the practice as a nonunique practice across cultures.

    I think you should actually read the reference you posted, the nexus of the press is not against inheritance — it that said stake holders violated their contractual agreement.

    And what settles my position is that the referenced site acknowledges the cross cultural practice of inheritance. The article says, that inheritence is widespread. it is not a critique of inheritence, but the concept of private ownership of the land — and his critique is limited to the European feudal system —

    It says absolutely nothing negative about the private monies, goods, businesses, etc being handed over to after a passing as inheritance to others –

    I am not sure why so many of you have a tendency to note one aspect of a thing and proceed to make wholesale over-generalizations and misapplication. It’s probably a good idea to stop when your own reference contradicts your view.

    You are advancing a critique of land ownership to the issue of inheritance — they are not same thing just because they have mutual links to the matter of inheritance.

    Have at it. After all — you did describe “meekness” fairly accurately — close enough.

    White South Africans know what they have to do, but yet they won't do it. Carving out a white nation is the ONLY way forward for peace and security. South Africa is a big country. A white state (or states) can be cared out while leaving a huge swath of land, full of resources and industry for black South Africans. White South Africans must do this or they will perish.

    They should have done this decades ago. Contrary to the title of this article, it would have made no difference what “muh Constitution” said, Black government was always going to seize the land and genocide any whites who didn’t escape, because that’s what Africans do…

    "Is there any country in Afica with decent education, infrastructure, health care, birth control, housing, sewers, industry of any importance?

    The colonial powers built up the institutions and infrastructure for their benefit--they focused on urban areas, rather than the entire region. Some nations of Africa do have "decent" things, just not on a widespread basis. Did you not watch the video to gain a sense as to why Africa, which is only 60 years removed from European control, is struggling to get on its feet?

    "Why are African countries unable to folllow the Singapore example?"

    The development of Africa and the development of Singapore followed different paths.

    Can you explain to me where in Africa you see development ?

    The reason Africa does not develop might be what an African in a German TV docu said ‘die Weissen können nicht einfach herumsitzen’, translation ‘the whites are unable to hang around’.

    What we see with the migrants is that they can.
    After being here for eight years they still do not speak the language, do not work, but do state that they want to work.

    Writing this I’m remembering that, long ago, a DDR man who had succeeded in going to then W Germany.

    "you cannot be a true Christian if you accept the Old Testament"

    Let's just say that neither Catholics, Orthodox, Protestants or any other branch of Christianity would agree with you.

    My comments regarding Marx are based on the writings of Richard Wurmbrand, a Jewish convert to Christianity who became a Christian pastor and was imprisoned in brutal conditions in Communist Romania. His views on Marx, and therefore Marxist doctrine, are very insightful regarding the spiritual underpinnings of that system. There was more to it than mere atheism. But you are right about one thing - I did get it off the internet.

    "All taxation “forcibly takes your goods”, so we’ve crossed that Rubicon"

    Common sense rules. The state has to be supported, so a degree of taxation is inevitable. If an average income is taxed at 10% most people would consider that reasonable, methinks. On the other hand, if an average income is taxed at 90% most people would consider that draconian and unjustified.

    The point is, in a Capitalist system, despite all its many flaws, what you have and earn is yours but you must contribute some of what you have to society.

    By contrast, under Communism, what you have and earn fundamentally does not belong to you - and the state decides how much you can have.

    The latter system is more controlling; the former, crappy as it might be in so many ways, is less so. So that's why I prefer it. And that's also quite apart from the spiritual underpinnings of Marxism.

    “Let’s just say that neither Catholics, Orthodox, Protestants or any other branch of Christianity would agree with you. ” Fortunately for me my views are not up for a vote. Even though if you go up to the average Catholic, Orthodox or Protestant in the street, and ask them if the following passage (and many, many more like it) is the word of God or the word of the Beast, what will they say?

    13 Deuteronomy 6-10: If your very own brother, or your son or daughter, or the wife you love, or your closest friend secretly entices you, saying, “Let us go and worship other gods” (gods that neither you nor your ancestors have known, 7 gods of the peoples around you, whether near or far, from one end of the land to the other), 8 do not yield to them or listen to them. Show them no pity. Do not spare them or shield them. 9 You must certainly put them to death. Your hand must be the first in putting them to death, and then the hands of all the people. 10 Stone them to death, because they tried to turn you away from the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.

    20 Deuteronomy 10-15: 10 When you march up to attack a city, make its people an offer of peace. 11 If they accept and open their gates, all the people in it shall be subject to forced labor and shall work for you. 12 If they refuse to make peace and they engage you in battle, lay siege to that city. 13 When the Lord your God delivers it into your hand, put to the sword all the men in it. 14 As for the women, the children, the livestock and everything else in the city, you may take these as plunder for yourselves. And you may use the plunder the Lord your God gives you from your enemies. 15 This is how you are to treat all the cities that are at a distance from you and do not belong to the nations nearby.

    So I think a lot of Christians believe the “Old Testament” is part of Christianity because that is what they learned, not because they really believe it. The Jewish bible truly is a work of evil. And if you ask me the Jews worked it into Christianity so they could run with this “Judeo-Christian” crap. Which has worked remarkably well for them. But I’m not fooled.

    I agree Marx has flaws. I have read his works extensively. But that does not make all he writes wrong. He also believed the sun was bright. Does that make it false? Yes, he was a materialist, and yes he opposed the Church for oppressing the people (which, at the time, it did), but lots of people you probably read and whose scripts you watch in movies have similar views.

    “If an average income is taxed at 10% most people would consider that reasonable, methinks. ” That’s fine for you to think but I prefer no income tax but a property tax. And I don’t believe in private property, aside from some areas which are also covered in the Bible, such as clothes, tools, etc., which is just common sense. Plus my income is taxed vastly more than 10%. If you add all taxes, including property, sales, etc., it is closer to 80%. Even more if you include the “interest” tax I have to pay to the oligarchs who inherited their money. And you are right, I do find that draconian and unjustified. That’s why I am ready for revolution, today. The richer you are, the less tax you pay. That uber-hypocrite Buffet probably pays 0.1% tax (he lies and says is it 20-some% but that is a gross and deliberate distortion).

    “The point is, in a Capitalist system, despite all its many flaws, what you have and earn is yours” That’s absolutely false. First the vast majority of people have nothing, as the oligarchs own the bulk of wealth. And if you are lucky you can slave your life for them, earning them a profit on everything you make, a tax if you will, which the State enforces with violence, or you can pay them fruit of your hard work to buy some property they were born with. No thanks. Utterly unjust in any case.

    There is nothing, absolutely nothing, about capitalism which requires inheritance.

    “The latter system is more controlling; the former, crappy as it might be in so many ways, is less so.” Yes, that is the oligarchs’ propaganda, isn’t it? We own everything so you can be free? LOL.

    Thanks for putting me in the company of such a wise man.

    Problem with the Boers is they were completely content being super racists for centuries but now are crying that someone wants them to leave the territory they invaded, and in which they ruled over the natives as supremacists. Mind you, the locals are not slaughtering them, or even tarring or feathering them, just taking away what isn't their's.

    And no, I don't believe in "inheritance" elsewhere, either. That is one monumental injustice that will one day be done away with. Inheritance and free market are actually opposites - you cannot have a free market when one group, whether selected by race as in S. Africa or by clan as in the "West", is born owning all the land and the other groups the serfs. That's how the feudal ages worked. Nothing's changed, except for a while, after the serfs agitated for change, the lords threw some more crumbs to the serfs. Well, in S. Africa, the masters weren't throwing enough crumbs to the slaves, and in the rest of the world, the masses will soon rise up and take what's theirs from the 1% useless and generally greedy and evil eaters who inherited it all. Unless smart people make some alternative decisions early, the result will be Communism.

    Inheritance is evil! The greatest evil on Earth!

    Has ANYBODY ever read Das Kapital all the way through? Sorry, the man could have used an editor. I am certain that their are useful insights, even truths in Marx's work. But how many normally intelligent readers have the stamina to get through the tome?

    My idea is that nobody ever read it.
    The book is incomprehensible, I stopped at page 20.
    That it is incomprehensible may be explained that it took Marx ten or eleven years to ‘prove’ his assertion that capital would be concentrated by fewer and fewer people.

    Exactly right a good jew is not a jew at all anymore. In a place like france or greece they should not even be allowed neither should by nordic irish ass. But in mutt white nations they unlike the rest of us must fully assimilate because unlike the rest of us they have a 2000 year track record of duplicity they must amend if they are not cool with that i get it they can go to israel.

I understand we are actually in an existential position and the world is on the cusp of a 500- 2000 year power realignment plans that will actually work have to be made we cant afford keyboard superheros gumming up the ability to think practically. hitler failed to get rid of the jews because its a really difficult thing to do and because even saying who is or isn’t is really hard. Jews really have been pretty important contributors to our tech and would be pretty good adversaries if they were alienated from the west entirely. and most of all, right now in the USA center of world power they have half the wealth and power dislodging them would not be easy and we would still have to deal with the mess they made.flipping them might just be a lot easier than we think. They too have suffered a multiculturalist leftist identity crisis they are rarely religious they marry out and like eldridge cleaver pointed out they buy into the white cultural hegemony, in other words on a certain level they want to be us more than ever and lets not forget genetically even the pure AKZ are 50-60% italian I mean they are probably closer to me genetically than a greek or an icelander im irish norwegian. I gues as a racist anti semite Im in a minority when i say if they would stop acting the way they do and cease keeping genetically and culturally apart I dont have any real ick factor about assimilating them genetically the way say other races must be kept out. of course im not voluteering to personally do this but if jews and wasps want to get it on at harvard fine as long as they again become whites rather than jews and citizens of the world

    If you’re trying to argue against identity politics, ah but Im so much younger than that now.Then what you would be saying is if you accept the given that nations are multicultural then to allow identity politics for the dominant group will surely backfire on them. Uh yeah if you accept multiculturalism as a given then another given is identity politics and another given further down the road is civil race war.But then you would have begun by destroying the entire point of a nation state which is the place from which a particular people safely operate from and engage the world.

    This has to be one of the dumbest ideas I’ve seen on Unz (but I do block a lot of commenters so..)

    The whites in SA are the people who created this catastrophe. They had the power to prevent it, to stop the insane over-population of natives before they became a demographic time bomb, to forcibly expel them, etc. Instead, the people who should have known better than anyone on the planet the true nature of the natives, chose to give up their authority over what they’d built and hand it freely to the natives. And your idea is to bring them here? Thinking they’ll piss off white SJWs and negroes?

    What we should be doing is encouraging Wakanda by repatriation and restoration of our American negroes to the real Wakanda in SA. It’s a “first world nation” “built by Africans” isn’t it? So encourage them to go and keep building it. Let them do whatever they wish with the idiot whites who created that mess, who cares?

    People are driven to utilize and improve resources that they own.
     
    Really? Under your theory of human nature why would Zuckerberg or Buffet do anything? They have more money they or their progeny can ever spend. Even though in both cases they have contributed nothing extraordinary to society. One could go through the list. The real contributors to humanity are not the ones that have all the money or property - the latter are just the parasitic class. Granted a farmer is in most cases not in the same league as Zuckerberg or Buffet, but I'm sure people would keep farming the fields even if they didn't own them, just to get the profits of the harvest. In any case, a 90% tax would still leave 10% to the hand of the gifter.

    Consider that private ownership of resources can avoid the tragedy of the commons.
     
    Emphasis on may. In most cases, actually, private ownership of resources encourages overconsumption every bit as much as communal ownership. But I am not arguing against private ownership of property - I believe in that. I just don't believe in inheritance. It should be taxed at a special high rate.

    inheritance make a person, as they near their death, want to continue to improve their resources so that they can pass them to their offspring, rather than squander them.
     
    I don't see any evidence of that. Most workers, e.g., do not own their business, yet they do not "squander" it. I know, the elite selfish fucks always threaten, if you don't allows us to rule the world forever, we will fuck it up! There is a better way to deal with terrorists than to appease them. Anyway you can pretty much destroy that argument by allowing some limited inheritance, say 5-10%.

    Under your theory of human nature why would Zuckerberg or Buffet do anything?

    I don’t see your argument. My point is that people are driven to improve things they own and (as they get older) can pass on to their kids. I never said that there is a limit at which they stop wanting that. Indeed, if the only thing Zuckerberg cared about was living as a king, he’d sell all of his shares today and retire, living on investments etc. But, instead, he is driven to improve and build Facebook into something more than it already is.

    Most workers, e.g., do not own their business, yet they do not “squander” it

    Workers and owners are not the same thing. Workers don’t inherently care about the resource, except that they are fired by the owner when they do something that squanders it. More generally, because workers are employed at the owner’s pleasure (and vice-versa), each takes on some of the motivations of the other.

    Anyway you can pretty much destroy that argument by allowing some limited inheritance, say 5-10%.

    Not really. If the amount of inheritance tax is high enough, then any investment in a resource is not worth it. If your going to lose 90% of something, it very well might be better to exploit/ruin it before the tax hits. It’s like home improvements. Roughly speaking, most home improvements will pay $.50 on the dollar when you go to sell the house. So you shouldn’t really improve your house if you intend to sell it soon (minor cosmetic things that help sell the house are excluded).

    The right level of inheritance tax is one that encourages people to improve things to the end, yet prevent runaway wealth gain such that a de facto ruling class is created by one successful generation. That is, every generation should be very productive in order to maintain or grow their level of wealth.

    One can’t be a Christian and not wholly accept the Old Testament in the same manner one accepts the New Testament.
     
    I couldn't disagree more - in fact you cannot be a true Christian if you accept the Old Testament. The Old Testament is the word of the Satanic Beast Yahweh and the Synagogue of Satan which Christ condemned. And I don't care what some elitist corrupt group of assholes said in some conference 1,000+ years ago. All I need to do is read the text and it is abundantly clear the Old Testament describes a Satanic Beast and the New Testament a God. Sad for you that you have fallen for it.

    Marx hated God and wanted to dethrone Him. I’m not interested in reading anything he wrote, seeing as he was a servant of the father of lies.
     
    Close your mind all you want, but maybe you shouldn't be using the internet, it was invented by an atheist. Ideas are orthogonal - just because someone is wrong about one thing doesn't mean he is wrong about everything. Well, except for in your world.

    except that it forcibly takes your goods as opposed to encouraging your generosity with what is actually yours.
     
    All taxation "forcibly takes your goods", so we've crossed that Rubicon. Moreover, the law giving exclusive rights to property to one person forcibly takes it from me, as I am not allowed to use it. That is also force, though of course it is force you love. You do not have a consistent position. Finally, "actually yours" is entirely conclusory. My entire point is I challenged that someone who inherits something that it is "actually theirs". It's only theirs if the idiot 99% want to punch themselves in the face. In fact, I would go further and say nobody "owns" land; I grant for practical purposes there is a need for exclusive possession to the extent necessary to make productive use of it for the benefit of society as a whole, but that's it. The world belongs to everyone equally, not to the descendants of the tyrants and criminals who usurped it.

    “you cannot be a true Christian if you accept the Old Testament”

    Let’s just say that neither Catholics, Orthodox, Protestants or any other branch of Christianity would agree with you.

    My comments regarding Marx are based on the writings of Richard Wurmbrand, a Jewish convert to Christianity who became a Christian pastor and was imprisoned in brutal conditions in Communist Romania. His views on Marx, and therefore Marxist doctrine, are very insightful regarding the spiritual underpinnings of that system. There was more to it than mere atheism. But you are right about one thing – I did get it off the internet.

    “All taxation “forcibly takes your goods”, so we’ve crossed that Rubicon”

    Common sense rules. The state has to be supported, so a degree of taxation is inevitable. If an average income is taxed at 10% most people would consider that reasonable, methinks. On the other hand, if an average income is taxed at 90% most people would consider that draconian and unjustified.

    The point is, in a Capitalist system, despite all its many flaws, what you have and earn is yours but you must contribute some of what you have to society.

    By contrast, under Communism, what you have and earn fundamentally does not belong to you – and the state decides how much you can have.

    The latter system is more controlling; the former, crappy as it might be in so many ways, is less so. So that’s why I prefer it. And that’s also quite apart from the spiritual underpinnings of Marxism.

    "Let’s just say that neither Catholics, Orthodox, Protestants or any other branch of Christianity would agree with you. " Fortunately for me my views are not up for a vote. Even though if you go up to the average Catholic, Orthodox or Protestant in the street, and ask them if the following passage (and many, many more like it) is the word of God or the word of the Beast, what will they say?

    13 Deuteronomy 6-10: If your very own brother, or your son or daughter, or the wife you love, or your closest friend secretly entices you, saying, “Let us go and worship other gods” (gods that neither you nor your ancestors have known, 7 gods of the peoples around you, whether near or far, from one end of the land to the other), 8 do not yield to them or listen to them. Show them no pity. Do not spare them or shield them. 9 You must certainly put them to death. Your hand must be the first in putting them to death, and then the hands of all the people. 10 Stone them to death, because they tried to turn you away from the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery.

    20 Deuteronomy 10-15: 10 When you march up to attack a city, make its people an offer of peace. 11 If they accept and open their gates, all the people in it shall be subject to forced labor and shall work for you. 12 If they refuse to make peace and they engage you in battle, lay siege to that city. 13 When the Lord your God delivers it into your hand, put to the sword all the men in it. 14 As for the women, the children, the livestock and everything else in the city, you may take these as plunder for yourselves. And you may use the plunder the Lord your God gives you from your enemies. 15 This is how you are to treat all the cities that are at a distance from you and do not belong to the nations nearby.
     

    So I think a lot of Christians believe the "Old Testament" is part of Christianity because that is what they learned, not because they really believe it. The Jewish bible truly is a work of evil. And if you ask me the Jews worked it into Christianity so they could run with this "Judeo-Christian" crap. Which has worked remarkably well for them. But I'm not fooled.

    I agree Marx has flaws. I have read his works extensively. But that does not make all he writes wrong. He also believed the sun was bright. Does that make it false? Yes, he was a materialist, and yes he opposed the Church for oppressing the people (which, at the time, it did), but lots of people you probably read and whose scripts you watch in movies have similar views.

    "If an average income is taxed at 10% most people would consider that reasonable, methinks. " That's fine for you to think but I prefer no income tax but a property tax. And I don't believe in private property, aside from some areas which are also covered in the Bible, such as clothes, tools, etc., which is just common sense. Plus my income is taxed vastly more than 10%. If you add all taxes, including property, sales, etc., it is closer to 80%. Even more if you include the "interest" tax I have to pay to the oligarchs who inherited their money. And you are right, I do find that draconian and unjustified. That's why I am ready for revolution, today. The richer you are, the less tax you pay. That uber-hypocrite Buffet probably pays 0.1% tax (he lies and says is it 20-some% but that is a gross and deliberate distortion).

    "The point is, in a Capitalist system, despite all its many flaws, what you have and earn is yours" That's absolutely false. First the vast majority of people have nothing, as the oligarchs own the bulk of wealth. And if you are lucky you can slave your life for them, earning them a profit on everything you make, a tax if you will, which the State enforces with violence, or you can pay them fruit of your hard work to buy some property they were born with. No thanks. Utterly unjust in any case.

    There is nothing, absolutely nothing, about capitalism which requires inheritance.

    "The latter system is more controlling; the former, crappy as it might be in so many ways, is less so." Yes, that is the oligarchs' propaganda, isn't it? We own everything so you can be free? LOL.

    Not true. The Khoi San indigenous peoples were nomads whose territory ranged from Southern Angola to the Cape of Good Hope. They were hunter gatherers who did not grow food crops of any kind and constructed minimalist grass huts for shelter.

    The Negroid Bantu peoples started to move south long after the Dutch landed in the Cape and imported farmers from Holland to provide food stocks for their trading ships rounding the Cape sailing to and from the East Indies.

    The land was extremely poor for farming and many gave up and asked to return to Holland or go to the East Indies. The few who remained traded with the Khoi and some intermarried thus the origins of the Afrikaner and the Afrikaans language which is basic Dutch combined with African languages and a smattering of English. It is the only language that can be read and understood by two different languages.

    As with their language so progressed their farming methods. Within a short space of time they learned to tame this inhospitable land and turned it into a land of bounty, in much the same way the Israelis have done.

    The Bantu peoples settled in the Eastern Cape and Natal bringing with them their cattle and practiced subsistence farming, moving on to new pastures when the land became exhausted. They built no permanent structures but did establish large villages comprising of single storey mud huts.

    They traded with the new African tribe called Afrikaaners for food and trinkets and thus began the Bantu population explosion in tandem with the massive expansion of commercial farming.

    No one stole any land from anyone!

    Post 1994 the new democratic government began to buy white farms on the agreed willing seller willing buyer system agreed in the constitutional negotiations. These farms were handed over to supporters of the ruling party who sold off anything movable and either left the farms to go to rack and ruin or in a few cases leased the farm back to a white farmer, often the original owners. There have of course been a few success stories but not enough to give substance to any prospect of sufficient food production in the event all the white farmers abandon South Africa.

    Take the unfortunate Zimbabwe paradigm. Mugabe simplistically considered that replacement of the few white farmers with thousands of people with no farming skills on small parcels of land would work. It didn't, Zimbabwe went from being a net exporter of food to a major importer, mainly from South Africa.

    The one area in Zimbabwe's agricultural revolution that did flourish was tobacco which was easy to grow on the small holdings but nowhere near the levels previously produced.

    The new leaders of Zimbabwe, President Manangagwa did not mince words when he told his people that he was giving back the farms to their previous owners. He said and I quote him , "If the white man had never come to Africa, the black people would still be dressed in animal skins and living in huts".

    Many of the expelled Zimbabwean farmers were grabbed by Angola, Zambia Nigeria and myriad other countries. Zambia for instance was an importer of food, now it exports food to Zimbabwe. Angola, who also imports massive quantities of food from South Africa, is less dependant.

    Which brings me to my last point. It's not just the people of South Africa that will suffer starvation if the white farmers leave, it will be the whole of Southern Africa. Every country in Southern Africa will be affected. Botswana being a desert country imports most of it's food from South Africa, there's no alternative source of food for an expanding urban population that's lost its ability to live off the land.

    The platitude that white farmers should be dispossessed and forced to work for the new black farmers is not realistic. There's also the very probable repercussion that they will revolt with support from the most unexpected quarters.

    Absolute nonsense. People the world round handed down their property to their family members since time inmemoriam -- there's not a single thing wrong with the practice. it doesn't even have a unique place in any economic system.

    Suppose my sister inherits all of my father's goods -- she may not deserve, but those are my father's goods to hand to whom ever he chooses. I think you are simply advancing the press as contentiousness, not as any sincere advance that impacts any economy or social fare. And people have every right to contest inheritances, given that some people operate dishonestly, but minus that - it's a private matter.


    Now, if you want to discuss power inheritance as in the concept of divine or social right -- that is a completely different issue.

    I don't think you understand what is meant by meek.

    People the world round handed down their property to their family members since time inmemoriam

    False. Are you utterly ignorant or purposefully spreading lies? Private property is at most a few thousands years old, when human history spans maybe 200,000 years. It developed when a few greedy thugs took something for themselves and killed those who challenged them. Over time they became the “kings” and “lords” of the world and enslaved everybody else (serfdom was, essentially, slavery). Even then it was not absolute, at any time one group of thugs (“kings”) could attack another group of thugs (“other kings”) and take their land and enslave their serfs. This is the “noble” (pun intended) history of private property to which you refer. But even during those periods there were many societies which did not succumb to the usurpers. See e.g. http://www.henrygeorge.org/pchp29.htm And even in recent years ideologies have emerged that would undo that travesty, such as communism. I am more for a middle ground, allow private property, have no income tax whatsoever (do not punish laborers), but put a heavy tax on inheritance.

    it doesn’t even have a unique place in any economic system.

    Perhaps you can prove me “wrong” with an exception but economic systems that have private property start out as (or, in case of US, end up as – there were special factors in the conquest of US land that allowed an initial wide distribution of property) centralized oligarchic systems that are not democratic, fair, or just. But murder is even more widespread in economic systems, I suppose you will sing the praises of murder next? Fact is there hasn’t been, and currently isn’t, anything close to a “just” economic system. Even in the “shining light” of the US, .1% of the people, most of whom have done nothing with their lives, own 99% of the wealth. I am ready for revolution. Just tell me the time and place. This evil system must end. And if Communism is the only alternative, I will not support it, but Communism it will be. The current unjust system simply cannot last. (And Trump the oligarch reducing inheritance tax – fuck that Orangutan.)

    In other words, either there will be a just distribution of wealth in society, or a new group of “kings” (thugs) will destroy the current group of “other kings” (thugs) and take what was their’s. Usually this is accomplished by promising a significant portion of the “spoils” to the commoners (no sweat off their back, right?).

    I don’t think you understand what is meant by meek.

    “Meekness is humility toward God and toward others. It is having the right or the power to do something but refraining for the benefit of someone else. ” The oligarchs are selfish cold mass-murderers and oppressors in this world. Thugs. They are the opposite of meek. They are the spawn of Satan. Including Oprah and uber-hypocrite Buffet. By their selfish acts they have chosen sides.

    No. my view of the commonly held view and practice. Let's not play tiddle winks. You are making the accusation the burden is on you to prove that inheritance is not a standard practice round the world.

    I will skip and ignore the childishness of name calling. Let's just suffice it to say, your comments reflect the issues (some of them about inheritance) it does not in any way diminish the practice as a nonunique practice across cultures.

    I think you should actually read the reference you posted, the nexus of the press is not against inheritance -- it that said stake holders violated their contractual agreement.

    And what settles my position is that the referenced site acknowledges the cross cultural practice of inheritance. The article says, that inheritence is widespread. it is not a critique of inheritence, but the concept of private ownership of the land -- and his critique is limited to the European feudal system ---

    It says absolutely nothing negative about the private monies, goods, businesses, etc being handed over to after a passing as inheritance to others --


    I am not sure why so many of you have a tendency to note one aspect of a thing and proceed to make wholesale over-generalizations and misapplication. It's probably a good idea to stop when your own reference contradicts your view.

    You are advancing a critique of land ownership to the issue of inheritance --- they are not same thing just because they have mutual links to the matter of inheritance.

    Have at it. After all -- you did describe "meekness" fairly accurately -- close enough.

    Your argument is that my trouncing you is ok because , others are trounced worse. i am not inclined to accept that as standard --

    Sorry, I don’t agree.

    Apartheid (or separate development) had existed in South Africa long before it was given a formal name in 1948.

    The basic idea behind it was to uplift all the different races in SA – there being officially 4 different ethnic groups in the country, which could be further subdivided tribally and linguistically, at each racial groups state of development.

    A major project of the Apartheid government was to allocate traditional tribal land to the various Black tribes so they could have self-governence, but with SA state support.

    This is essentially the same as the 2 small African states surrounded by SA (Lesotho and Swaziland) which were granted independence by Britain. Unfortunately, the Homelands (as they were designated) were not particularly contiguous, and therefore lacked credibility.

    There is no question that the Blacks in South Africa benefitted under White rule, despite certainly being oppressed.

    Longer life expectancy, lower infant mortality, generally lower crime rates than what exists today, food security, good rates of literacy and a higher per capita income than pretty much anywhere else in Africa. A hefty chunk of White taxpayers money went towards school education for all the non-white races in South Africa. Their education was not at the same level of financing as White education, to be sure, but then Whites paid at least two thirds of the country’s taxes.

    With regards to your views that all people in a country should be treated exactly the same, and that this is consistent with Christianity, I’m not sure that is really the case. In scripture, both slave and free are certainly equal before God, but obviously not in the societies in which they lived.

    Equality amongst all people is a good ideal, and I do in fact hold to it, but it’s really a post WW2 ideal in terms of human history, certainly as far as the West is concerned. And how is it working out for the West? Not looking too good.

    There is the kingdom of God and there is the kingdom of man, the church and the state. The church should be run as a church, and not a state. And the state as a state, and not a church. They overlap but have different functions. Many Christians seem to feel that the state should be run like a big church, but I don’t agree, and the gospel message hardly concerns itself with how the state should be run. It was delivered during the Roman Empire after all.

    Just for the record: since the end of White rule in SA the laws of the country have become increasingly unChristian. Indeed, SA is a unique welding together of the worst of African culture (incompetence and rampant corruption) and the worst of Western culture (gay marriage, abortion on demand, a ban on any kind of corporal punishment).

    However dastardly the former White rulers of SA were, the current Black rulers are simply a kleptocracy – hence talk of land expropriation without compensation.

    You have a bizarre obsession with “inheritance” which I don’t find with anyone else on Unz Review.
     
    Actually, if I did have an obsession, it's a bid odd, given my 294 or so comments prior to today, today is the first time I recall making one on it.

    Inheritance is a profoundly righteous economic model, enshrined in scripture
     
    The New Testament mainly speaks of inheriting the Kingdom of God and the like. A few references to inheriting simple possessions (tools, etc.). Can you please provide the citations that "enshrine" the inheritance of large swaths of land, to the exclusion of all others from that land? (No need to quote from the Old (Jew) Testament, that is the word of Satan.)

    Communism is of the Devil – the father of lies.
     
    Well never mind then, you obviously don't know the first thing about scripture. But, the one aspect of Communism about which there is some pertinence, is it's anti-religious fervor. Being against inheritance (of capital, wealth and power), does not mean one is anti-religious. Indeed under your zealous reason Jesus himself was a "Communist" and hence "the Devil", as he favored sharing all wealth among all people. He certainly did not countenance greed or inherited power or a monopoly on nature. Why should one man inherit a beautiful beach when it belongs to all humanity? What would Jesus say? (Please provide references to scripture to support your claim.)

    If you subscribe to Marxist theory, that is up to you.
     
    Have you ever read Marx? What is Marxist theory to you? What about the labor theory of value? Or the tendency to monopolization? Or the concept of surplus labor? Or other economic theories Marx wrote about? Is that all "false" because "Marx" wrote it? LOL.

    I couldn't disagree more - in fact you cannot be a true Christian if you accept the Old Testament. The Old Testament is the word of the Satanic Beast Yahweh and the Synagogue of Satan which Christ condemned. And I don't care what some elitist corrupt group of assholes said in some conference 1,000+ years ago. All I need to do is read the text and it is abundantly clear the Old Testament describes a Satanic Beast and the New Testament a God. Sad for you that you have fallen for it.

    Close your mind all you want, but maybe you shouldn't be using the internet, it was invented by an atheist. Ideas are orthogonal - just because someone is wrong about one thing doesn't mean he is wrong about everything. Well, except for in your world.

    All taxation "forcibly takes your goods", so we've crossed that Rubicon. Moreover, the law giving exclusive rights to property to one person forcibly takes it from me, as I am not allowed to use it. That is also force, though of course it is force you love. You do not have a consistent position. Finally, "actually yours" is entirely conclusory. My entire point is I challenged that someone who inherits something that it is "actually theirs". It's only theirs if the idiot 99% want to punch themselves in the face. In fact, I would go further and say nobody "owns" land; I grant for practical purposes there is a need for exclusive possession to the extent necessary to make productive use of it for the benefit of society as a whole, but that's it. The world belongs to everyone equally, not to the descendants of the tyrants and criminals who usurped it.

    So the natives were drawn to such amazing witch doctery as clean water, abundant food, the wheel, infants that live, inviting the neighbors for dinner with no intention to eat them, clothing, music that didn’t involve logs, etc. Look at any remote African village today or better still at one of the uncontacted Amazonian tribes or the Andaman Islanders - imagine going from that to today in just a few generations. Population numbers skyrocketed. Look at native population growth vs time vs proximity to Europeans and contrast to yet uncontacted regions’ numbers in Malthusian state.

    ‘Bury them alive!’: White South Africans fear for their future as horrific farm attacks escalate

    ..............................
    According to the TAU, last year there were 345 attacks resulting in 70 deaths — the highest death toll since 2008. In 2015 there were 318 attacks resulting in 64 deaths, and the year before there were 277 attacks resulting in 67 deaths.

    In total, between 1998 and the end of 2016, 1848 people have been murdered in farm attacks — 1187 farmers, 490 family members, 147 farm employees, and 24 people who happened to be visiting the farm at the time.

    While South Africa has one of the highest rates of violent crime anywhere in the world, the attacks on white farmers are no ordinary crimes.

    In a 2014 report, “The Reality of Farm Tortures in South Africa”, AfriForum wrote that “the horror experienced during farm tortures is almost incomprehensible”.

    “The well-known ‘blood sisters’ from the South African company Crimescene-cleanup have rightly indicated that, in their experience, farm tortures are by far the most horrific acts of violence in South Africa,” the report said.

    “They are of the opinion that the term ‘farm murders’ is misleading and that the terms ‘farm terror’ and ‘farm tortures’ are more suitable.”

    While sometimes farmers and their families are tortured to obtain information, such as the whereabouts of keys to the safe, human rights groups say the excessive brutality may be intended to send a message to the general farming community — get out of our country.

    Victims are often restrained, harmed with weapons such as machetes and pitchforks, burned with boiling water or hot irons, dragged behind vehicles and shot. Female victims are often raped during attacks.

    Notice that the western “MSM” remains steadfastly silent on these horrors.

    All about ‘who; whom’ as another contributor on this site says.

    I agree with the last part but not the first.

    the dominant part of white culture is rotten to its core and I expect nothing from it but what it spews..like what flows from most of the comments here above.

    look here: western white culture is now so godawful, so creepy and ghoulish that I don't even read their news publications too much anymore. the last time I looked an expert was lamenting the ban on cannibalism..the consumption of human meat. and some american states had legalized the selling of babies..were about creating a market for live human babies.

    add to that the huge clandestine market for human body parts..Israel openly killing Palestinians and harvesting their bodies. then there is homosexual marriage, adoption,teaching homosexuality in kindergarten. then a river of gender bending while allowing children of single digit years to chose their gender, sending them for gender assignment surgery.what the hell are we looking at in the west..like it is reflected in the commentary on this page..a 100% lunatic culture, dying on its feet, literally consuming itself. lord have mercy

    The Russians are better with their Christian resurgence ..though I am not religious. and there are sane cultured and brilliant white humane people all over. but the western white collective needs to be saved from itself. and in doing so we may yet save our species..as the west seems prepared to blow the planet up as their hegemony wanes

    so I disagree with you on the morality of the white countries bringing home the white farmers of South Africa. let them go home..who cares..they are of no use to Africa

    and similarly Africa needs no expertise in any way shape or form from the old slaver..Ole Marse'.. colonizer and corporate raider extraordinaire. Africa can help itself. the further away we keep western white man the better for us. I don't for the life of me understand why the hell most Africans cant see that yet..still fooled by white propaganda

    Ramaphosa must take back the land...let the white farmers go if they want to..they are free. and accept no help from the west for African agriculture. any such help is bound to be a poisoned cup, built around high fossil fuel inputs, as it is saturated with poisonous chemicals. Africa can use none of that. we must be about feeding the people..or allowing the people to feed themselves..not to poison the people

    so if production goes down while the land is cleansed and healed, and while skills, plans and support for clean sustainable agriculture are built up, that is fine. Africa does not need to poison its land as the west has done

    the way I see things is that there is a growing opportunity in the world for the formerly dominated world to drop the west entirely, and go off on a proper, sustainable, humane path of development. Western hegemony is breaking down and it brings the opportunity for us to leave.

    and that is what we must do...leave. I don't mind if all Black people go back to Africa and leave the west lily white. there is absolutely nothing about the west, that the west has and has done that I want. I can do all I need to do for myself. I want goddam white people off my back and out of my life that's what I want

    the fools who post here believe that that is all Black people want..white life. my idea is to drop the west completely, forget about it, travel around it, over it but never through it. you guys can live as you please and so can I

    if the west reforms itself, humanizes itself that's up to the west. and if it does that and seeks re-entry into all of humanity I still would not care for the west. the decision would not be up to me along of course. but if it were my answer would not be yes. the west can live by itself, on its own cant it..all you guys here? what do you need the rest of the world for?

    Leaving aside your many psychotic fantasies about white people, the simple fact is that you third-world people can’t get enough of us and refuse to leave us alone. There’s nothing we’d like better than for you to stay in your own parts of the world but you refuse. What’s to be done about that?

    Neither you nor I had anything to do with what happened 100 years ago in some faraway place. All we have is the reality of here and now. And that reality is that you and yours are trying to wreck every single thing that’s good about the few remaining civilized countries on the planet. What’s to be done about that?

    A number of very uninformed commentators here are assuming that the Black tribes of Southern Africa are the original indigenous inhabitants of the land.

    Not so. The Khoisan people were indigenous to the land at the time of both Bantu (Black African) migration southwards from further north in Africa and White settlement from Europe. Not only that, but White trekkers in the early 19th century often purchased land from Black tribal chiefs, and not only simply stole land, as seems to be the narrative.

    Of course, Black tribes often dispossessed land off each other and committed genocide against each other (Shaka of the Zulus a prime example).

    Furthermore, the "New" South Africa was a negotiated settlement between the White government and Black liberation groups. The Blacks were not negotiating from a position of strength, as Mandela himself admitted. Any hint of land expropriation without compensation would have killed any negotiations dead in the water.

    As for, hey man just get off the land and we'll make it work somehow, that's fine in Wakanda, but not in real life.

    Everyone can do subsistence farming; commercial farming is quite another matter. And a mostly rural population of 3/4 million 150 years ago is a different paradigm to a mostly urban population of 60 million today.

    As you can see from many of the responses here, a lot of people believe that Wakanda is documentary material, not ludicrous fantasy. Who needs facts? They just get in the way.

    Indeed. Zimbabwe used to be a net food exporter, now a net food importer.

    South Africa's agricultural industry is much bigger than Zimbabwe's - so any large scale expropriation will be a much bigger stuff-up than what is happening there.

    It's a bit heartless for some people commenting here to wish food shortages, skyrocketing food prices - and possibly starvation - on the Black South African masses. Not to mention the Whites, the several million mixed-race people and 1.5 million Asians.

But they wanted to hang onto Johannesburg, where all of the money was. Bad mistake.

    Cry me a river. Those Whites should just give up the land they inherited (and of which all Blacks in South Africa are therefor deprived) and return home. Simple.

    Why should a Black African, who is extremely unlikely to find success in Denmark, France or Germany, be content with all the valuable South African land being owned by Whites, who have inherited it from ancestors who stole it from the locals, even if the locals owned it communally?

    And if Whites had any brains they'd take the large landholdings of the Jew invaders and the Jews can just return home.

    A lot of conflict would end if people didn't want to keep owning all of the prime shit in places where they don't belong.

    I disagree, inheritance is incredibly evil and unjust, on the same level as slavery. Before slavery was abolished, it was also "a time honored practice spanning cultures around the globe".

    The only societies which permitted inheritance were the ones where the powerful declared property to be their own (i.e. monopolized land) and then, further expanding their power, passed the fruits of their theft on to their children. Anyone who objected was killed or otherwise punished. If this is some "time honored practice", so be it, I find it utterly repulsive, criminal, and against "natural law" (by the way there are many so-called "time honored practices" in which humans no longer engage).

    Inheritance is simply the powerful stomping on the powerless, and yes, that has happened throughout history and is "time honored" - but some day, as Christ proclaimed, "the meek shall inherit the Earth"!

    Absolute nonsense. People the world round handed down their property to their family members since time inmemoriam — there’s not a single thing wrong with the practice. it doesn’t even have a unique place in any economic system.

    Suppose my sister inherits all of my father’s goods — she may not deserve, but those are my father’s goods to hand to whom ever he chooses. I think you are simply advancing the press as contentiousness, not as any sincere advance that impacts any economy or social fare. And people have every right to contest inheritances, given that some people operate dishonestly, but minus that – it’s a private matter.

    Now, if you want to discuss power inheritance as in the concept of divine or social right — that is a completely different issue.

    I don’t think you understand what is meant by meek.

    False. Are you utterly ignorant or purposefully spreading lies? Private property is at most a few thousands years old, when human history spans maybe 200,000 years. It developed when a few greedy thugs took something for themselves and killed those who challenged them. Over time they became the "kings" and "lords" of the world and enslaved everybody else (serfdom was, essentially, slavery). Even then it was not absolute, at any time one group of thugs ("kings") could attack another group of thugs ("other kings") and take their land and enslave their serfs. This is the "noble" (pun intended) history of private property to which you refer. But even during those periods there were many societies which did not succumb to the usurpers. See e.g. http://www.henrygeorge.org/pchp29.htm And even in recent years ideologies have emerged that would undo that travesty, such as communism. I am more for a middle ground, allow private property, have no income tax whatsoever (do not punish laborers), but put a heavy tax on inheritance.

    it doesn’t even have a unique place in any economic system.
     
    Perhaps you can prove me "wrong" with an exception but economic systems that have private property start out as (or, in case of US, end up as - there were special factors in the conquest of US land that allowed an initial wide distribution of property) centralized oligarchic systems that are not democratic, fair, or just. But murder is even more widespread in economic systems, I suppose you will sing the praises of murder next? Fact is there hasn't been, and currently isn't, anything close to a "just" economic system. Even in the "shining light" of the US, .1% of the people, most of whom have done nothing with their lives, own 99% of the wealth. I am ready for revolution. Just tell me the time and place. This evil system must end. And if Communism is the only alternative, I will not support it, but Communism it will be. The current unjust system simply cannot last. (And Trump the oligarch reducing inheritance tax - fuck that Orangutan.)

    In other words, either there will be a just distribution of wealth in society, or a new group of "kings" (thugs) will destroy the current group of "other kings" (thugs) and take what was their's. Usually this is accomplished by promising a significant portion of the "spoils" to the commoners (no sweat off their back, right?).

    I don’t think you understand what is meant by meek.
     
    "Meekness is humility toward God and toward others. It is having the right or the power to do something but refraining for the benefit of someone else. " The oligarchs are selfish cold mass-murderers and oppressors in this world. Thugs. They are the opposite of meek. They are the spawn of Satan. Including Oprah and uber-hypocrite Buffet. By their selfish acts they have chosen sides.

    During apartheid there was net in-migration of blacks from other African countries. Of course, whites could have given more to blacks, but blacks in South Africa were generally better off than their neighbors and possibly better off than people living in the Soviet Union.

    In Zimbabwe, average living standards are less than half of what they were at their peak. We will see what happens in South Africa.

    1. i don’t agree with rev Farrakahn about Jews as a general state of being.

    2. your comments suggests that if i beat my dog five times less than i beat my neighbors, it’s ok to beat
    my dog — mind you human beings aren’t dogs.

    3. the very nature of apartheid means no one claiming Christ can engage in it with a clear conscience.
    offering up that its crumbs were beneficial misses the point of what Christ meant when he made the
    reference.

    4. most are better off in the US than most around the globe — that does not by definition suggest

    Sorry, I don't agree.

    Apartheid (or separate development) had existed in South Africa long before it was given a formal name in 1948.

    The basic idea behind it was to uplift all the different races in SA - there being officially 4 different ethnic groups in the country, which could be further subdivided tribally and linguistically, at each racial groups state of development.

    A major project of the Apartheid government was to allocate traditional tribal land to the various Black tribes so they could have self-governence, but with SA state support.

    This is essentially the same as the 2 small African states surrounded by SA (Lesotho and Swaziland) which were granted independence by Britain. Unfortunately, the Homelands (as they were designated) were not particularly contiguous, and therefore lacked credibility.

    There is no question that the Blacks in South Africa benefitted under White rule, despite certainly being oppressed.

    Longer life expectancy, lower infant mortality, generally lower crime rates than what exists today, food security, good rates of literacy and a higher per capita income than pretty much anywhere else in Africa. A hefty chunk of White taxpayers money went towards school education for all the non-white races in South Africa. Their education was not at the same level of financing as White education, to be sure, but then Whites paid at least two thirds of the country's taxes.

    With regards to your views that all people in a country should be treated exactly the same, and that this is consistent with Christianity, I'm not sure that is really the case. In scripture, both slave and free are certainly equal before God, but obviously not in the societies in which they lived.

    Equality amongst all people is a good ideal, and I do in fact hold to it, but it's really a post WW2 ideal in terms of human history, certainly as far as the West is concerned. And how is it working out for the West? Not looking too good.

    There is the kingdom of God and there is the kingdom of man, the church and the state. The church should be run as a church, and not a state. And the state as a state, and not a church. They overlap but have different functions. Many Christians seem to feel that the state should be run like a big church, but I don't agree, and the gospel message hardly concerns itself with how the state should be run. It was delivered during the Roman Empire after all.

    Just for the record: since the end of White rule in SA the laws of the country have become increasingly unChristian. Indeed, SA is a unique welding together of the worst of African culture (incompetence and rampant corruption) and the worst of Western culture (gay marriage, abortion on demand, a ban on any kind of corporal punishment).

    However dastardly the former White rulers of SA were, the current Black rulers are simply a kleptocracy - hence talk of land expropriation without compensation.

    I wouldn't waste my time trying to read Marx.

    I do recall getting hold of Mein Kampf when I was in my 20's. Not because I like Hitler or am a Nazi yada yada, but was hoping to be profoundly shocked by what I assumed would be political porn.

    Result? Boooorrriiinggg!! I doubt I read as much as a fifth of it before taking it back to the library.
    , @jilles dykstra
    My idea is that nobody ever read it.
    The book is incomprehensible, I stopped at page 20.
    That it is incomprehensible may be explained that it took Marx ten or eleven years to 'prove' his assertion that capital would be concentrated by fewer and fewer people.
    Though the distribution of capital is very uneven, we never saw fully what Marx predicted.

Indeed under your zealous reason Jesus himself was a “Communist” and hence “the Devil”, as he favored sharing all wealth among all people.

    One can't be a Christian and not wholly accept the Old Testament in the same manner one accepts the New Testament. The early Christians only had the Old Testament.

    Marx hated God and wanted to dethrone Him. I'm not interested in reading anything he wrote, seeing as he was a servant of the father of lies.

    There are some downsides to inheritance, for sure. But consider one positive aspect of it: People are driven to utilize and improve resources that they own. Consider that private ownership of resources can avoid the tragedy of the commons. So to, then, might inheritance make a person, as they near their death, want to continue to improve their resources so that they can pass them to their offspring, rather than squander them.

    People are driven to utilize and improve resources that they own.

    Really? Under your theory of human nature why would Zuckerberg or Buffet do anything? They have more money they or their progeny can ever spend. Even though in both cases they have contributed nothing extraordinary to society. One could go through the list. The real contributors to humanity are not the ones that have all the money or property – the latter are just the parasitic class. Granted a farmer is in most cases not in the same league as Zuckerberg or Buffet, but I’m sure people would keep farming the fields even if they didn’t own them, just to get the profits of the harvest. In any case, a 90% tax would still leave 10% to the hand of the gifter.

    Consider that private ownership of resources can avoid the tragedy of the commons.

    Emphasis on may. In most cases, actually, private ownership of resources encourages overconsumption every bit as much as communal ownership. But I am not arguing against private ownership of property – I believe in that. I just don’t believe in inheritance. It should be taxed at a special high rate.

    inheritance make a person, as they near their death, want to continue to improve their resources so that they can pass them to their offspring, rather than squander them.

    I don’t see any evidence of that. Most workers, e.g., do not own their business, yet they do not “squander” it. I know, the elite selfish fucks always threaten, if you don’t allows us to rule the world forever, we will fuck it up! There is a better way to deal with terrorists than to appease them. Anyway you can pretty much destroy that argument by allowing some limited inheritance, say 5-10%.

    I don't see your argument. My point is that people are driven to improve things they own and (as they get older) can pass on to their kids. I never said that there is a limit at which they stop wanting that. Indeed, if the only thing Zuckerberg cared about was living as a king, he'd sell all of his shares today and retire, living on investments etc. But, instead, he is driven to improve and build Facebook into something more than it already is.

    Most workers, e.g., do not own their business, yet they do not “squander” it
     
    Workers and owners are not the same thing. Workers don't inherently care about the resource, except that they are fired by the owner when they do something that squanders it. More generally, because workers are employed at the owner's pleasure (and vice-versa), each takes on some of the motivations of the other.

    Anyway you can pretty much destroy that argument by allowing some limited inheritance, say 5-10%.
     
    Not really. If the amount of inheritance tax is high enough, then any investment in a resource is not worth it. If your going to lose 90% of something, it very well might be better to exploit/ruin it before the tax hits. It's like home improvements. Roughly speaking, most home improvements will pay $.50 on the dollar when you go to sell the house. So you shouldn't really improve your house if you intend to sell it soon (minor cosmetic things that help sell the house are excluded).

    The right level of inheritance tax is one that encourages people to improve things to the end, yet prevent runaway wealth gain such that a de facto ruling class is created by one successful generation. That is, every generation should be very productive in order to maintain or grow their level of wealth.

Let’s send home, with reparations, our brilliant black scientists, lawyers, doctors, and engineers so that together with Africans, they can build Wakanda atop the ashes of Apartheid.

    Oh sure, America will suffer, perhaps catastrophically, from the enormous talent drain of losing its brightest and best, but somehow Detroit, Baltimore, Newark, Chicago, and the rest will have to forge on without them to build it all for us.

    I am not clear that you have a grasp for what apartheid was or its application. All of the benefits that you claim were brought to this region of Africa was denied to the majority of the population. So whatever benefits existed were almost exclusively for whites.

    Given the application of apartheid, no person of Christ could legitimately condone, support it, muchless in engage in it and stand in a congregation announcing the joys and expectations of of Christ and the Apostles.

    It is so drastically counter to everything Christ died to bestow in this life and beyond --- that making Christ a tool of the system has no justification. You'll have to do better than note the varying societies in which Christianity existed to square a life in Christ with apartheid.

    And no one demanding justice for injustices against Palestinians, could defend it it with a clear conscience, regardless of how one may feel about a particular group --

    During apartheid there was net in-migration of blacks from other African countries. Of course, whites could have given more to blacks, but blacks in South Africa were generally better off than their neighbors and possibly better off than people living in the Soviet Union.

    In Zimbabwe, average living standards are less than half of what they were at their peak. We will see what happens in South Africa.

    Armed secession, anyone? Why a truly Federal South Africa wasnt tried in 1990 escapes me. Orange Free state, redux?

    Apartheid was a “federal” system, and could have worked had whites been more generous (whites,with 20% of the population, claimed 80% of the land). At the very least, whites should have supported the partition of South Africa and claimed the Western Cape as an independent white nation. But they wanted to hang onto Johannesburg, where all of the money was. Bad mistake.

    African states in general would benefit from the example of Switzerland: division into small ethnically homogeneous cantons, with most government functions controlled at the canton level.

    The fact is that the natives were more interested in the various goodies provided by the European invaders than they were in this land of which you write. Keep always in mind that in the late 19th Century and early 20th Century, most of Africa was unexplored.

    https://www.smithsonianmag.com/history/stanley-meets-livingstone-91118102/

    So the natives were drawn to such amazing witch doctery as clean water, abundant food, the wheel, infants that live, inviting the neighbors for dinner with no intention to eat them, clothing, music that didn’t involve logs, etc. Look at any remote African village today or better still at one of the uncontacted Amazonian tribes or the Andaman Islanders - imagine going from that to today in just a few generations. Population numbers skyrocketed. Look at native population growth vs time vs proximity to Europeans and contrast to yet uncontacted regions’ numbers in Malthusian state.

    We are today just a hundred years on from that age of exploration. Forklifting Stone Age People directly into the Industrial Age and then on to the Information Age in a century is almost unimaginable and it’s indeed proving to be impossible.

    Shining light was on the White only in South Africa under the apartheid. The natives though still are not living well but it is better off than then.

Mind you the savagery image of the natives was a construct by the White alien to justify their stealing and plundering on the moral high ground like they have done in Americas and all over the world.

    The South Africans need to restore their own culture and tradition by cleansed the toxin brought in by the aliens from far away land. The alien’s way of life and government are toxic the South African physical and mental health.

    I disagree, inheritance is incredibly evil and unjust, on the same level as slavery. Before slavery was abolished, it was also "a time honored practice spanning cultures around the globe".

    The only societies which permitted inheritance were the ones where the powerful declared property to be their own (i.e. monopolized land) and then, further expanding their power, passed the fruits of their theft on to their children. Anyone who objected was killed or otherwise punished. If this is some "time honored practice", so be it, I find it utterly repulsive, criminal, and against "natural law" (by the way there are many so-called "time honored practices" in which humans no longer engage).

    Inheritance is simply the powerful stomping on the powerless, and yes, that has happened throughout history and is "time honored" - but some day, as Christ proclaimed, "the meek shall inherit the Earth"!

    There are some downsides to inheritance, for sure. But consider one positive aspect of it: People are driven to utilize and improve resources that they own.

    You clearly haven’t the faintest clue about Black African tribal dynamics, especially in the past, to question the right of tribal chiefs to sell or give away property, of whatever nature, in their domain.
     
    You are correct, I have not studied the Black African tribal dynamics of each tribe with which the Boers interacted. Have you? How do we know which tribe had the right to sell the land? Was it a matter of which was the most powerful tribe that could knock the others off the spot, as is typically the case (even today, with nations)? In that case, even assuming the "governing documents" of the tribe authorized the ownership of land (did it? were there land registries before the Boers arrived?), did that particular tribal chief have the right to sell that land to foreigners? And did his "deed" only cover the period for so long as that chief ruled (or the tribe ruled the area), or was it really "forever"? Do you have any legal opinions documenting these transfers of land? What was the compensation paid? Was there any duress, fraud or coercion in the exchange?

    In the end to me none of it matters because inheritance is a vile evil that needs to be exterminated. Like I wrote earlier, I wish S. Africa would just take the land through progressive property taxes and suitable inheritance taxes (say, 90% or so), I think taking it outright is not fair, but then again, inheritance itself is utterly unfair, even more unfair than the "land theft" of which you complain.


    But let me make a prediction for you: if there is widespread redistribution of commercial farmland in South Africa, from people with skills, acquired over generations in many instances, to a random group of people from whatever background – the greatest likelihood is overwhelming failure.
     
    It's a quite foreseeable outcome, and in that situation, as I wrote previously, I don't think anybody should step in to help. Make your own bed and sleep in it. In my view the solution is the taxes plus paying the white farmers a good sum to teach their successors how to farm the land - i.e. to retain them as managers or consultants, but not as "owners". It's only rational. But if the people want to jump off the cliff that's their business, just don't ask me to help clean up the bloody mess.

    Certainly, there would have been no going forward if private property rights were to be infringed.
     
    Inheritance is not a private property "right", it is an abomination, and the sooner this terrible abomination is destroyed, the better. (Note I am not talking about some reasonable home, to which everyone should be entitled, and if it comes from their parents and is one they grew up in so much the better, or heirlooms and the like.)

    That's actually the most appealing aspect of communism, get rid of inherited wealth/power/control.

    What does one mean by "faring well?

    One reasonable proxy for “faring well” is that people want to move to your country. People want to move to Western nations. Another reasonable criterion is “could defend itself from aggression.”

    Let’s make this clear — are you suggesting that there are black-ruled nations that have performed as well as white-ruled ones, in whichever criteria you deem the most reasonable way to measure a nation?

    As for plundering, etc, consider the possibility that exploitation results from power imbalance, and that it does not cause it. I’m not aware of African nations being particularly peaceful, and they likely exploited and plundered the neighbors that they could. They could not do that to Western nations, however.

    ‘Bury them alive!’: White South Africans fear for their future as horrific farm attacks escalate

    ..............................
    According to the TAU, last year there were 345 attacks resulting in 70 deaths — the highest death toll since 2008. In 2015 there were 318 attacks resulting in 64 deaths, and the year before there were 277 attacks resulting in 67 deaths.

    In total, between 1998 and the end of 2016, 1848 people have been murdered in farm attacks — 1187 farmers, 490 family members, 147 farm employees, and 24 people who happened to be visiting the farm at the time.

    While South Africa has one of the highest rates of violent crime anywhere in the world, the attacks on white farmers are no ordinary crimes.

    In a 2014 report, “The Reality of Farm Tortures in South Africa”, AfriForum wrote that “the horror experienced during farm tortures is almost incomprehensible”.

    We’ve seen this movie before. Literally, the 1960’s Africa Addio displayed in full cinematic color what it looks like when the natives take full control. The outcome is always the same.

    The more interesting question from a historical perspective is how the Chinese colonization project will fare. There are some videos out showing the “challenges” the Chinese face as well as their contempt for the natives.

    ‘Bury them alive!’: White South Africans fear for their future as horrific farm attacks escalate

    ..............................
    According to the TAU, last year there were 345 attacks resulting in 70 deaths — the highest death toll since 2008. In 2015 there were 318 attacks resulting in 64 deaths, and the year before there were 277 attacks resulting in 67 deaths.

    In total, between 1998 and the end of 2016, 1848 people have been murdered in farm attacks — 1187 farmers, 490 family members, 147 farm employees, and 24 people who happened to be visiting the farm at the time.

    While South Africa has one of the highest rates of violent crime anywhere in the world, the attacks on white farmers are no ordinary crimes.

    In a 2014 report, “The Reality of Farm Tortures in South Africa”, AfriForum wrote that “the horror experienced during farm tortures is almost incomprehensible”.

    “The well-known ‘blood sisters’ from the South African company Crimescene-cleanup have rightly indicated that, in their experience, farm tortures are by far the most horrific acts of violence in South Africa,” the report said.

    “They are of the opinion that the term ‘farm murders’ is misleading and that the terms ‘farm terror’ and ‘farm tortures’ are more suitable.”

    Hey, here is the real solution. Everybody, everywhere, go back to your ancestral homeland.

    Think of how the economy will "grow" for years: we'll see increased manufacture of airplanes and ships; resettlement experts; surveyors to do the land division work needed; police, managers & clerks to oversee all this. Don't forget DNA testing people to make sure everyone goes to his rightful spot on the planet. For mixed-race and mixed-ethnics, we'll have specialists to figure this all out once and for all.

    Employment for all (while they await their own deportation and resettlement).

Just in our era, they’ve done some stupendously and cataclysmicly self defeating things. Marxism has been a bad deal that will get much worse – the canonization of envy never ends well for a visible and highly successful group. Zionism will be existentially catastrophic – what idiot chooses the exact spot where every Christian and every Muslim looks forward to Apocalypse, and where one group thinks their God may forgive them (after annihilating them) the other thinks their God will just slaughter them (or they’ll do it for him). Immigration and SJWism have brought their dual whammy of importing an even higher IQ population with automatic Affirmative Action points (East Asians & high-caste Indians) plus hatred of whites when Jews are themselves squarely in the crosshairs – extra white even.

    The practice of inheritance is not unnatural, untoward, evil, unprecedented or unique to any culture. Passing to one's ancestry or as per the giver's demand is a time honored practice spanning cultures around the globe.

    I disagree, inheritance is incredibly evil and unjust, on the same level as slavery. Before slavery was abolished, it was also “a time honored practice spanning cultures around the globe”.

    The only societies which permitted inheritance were the ones where the powerful declared property to be their own (i.e. monopolized land) and then, further expanding their power, passed the fruits of their theft on to their children. Anyone who objected was killed or otherwise punished. If this is some “time honored practice”, so be it, I find it utterly repulsive, criminal, and against “natural law” (by the way there are many so-called “time honored practices” in which humans no longer engage).

    Inheritance is simply the powerful stomping on the powerless, and yes, that has happened throughout history and is “time honored” – but some day, as Christ proclaimed, “the meek shall inherit the Earth”!

    There are some downsides to inheritance, for sure. But consider one positive aspect of it: People are driven to utilize and improve resources that they own. Consider that private ownership of resources can avoid the tragedy of the commons. So to, then, might inheritance make a person, as they near their death, want to continue to improve their resources so that they can pass them to their offspring, rather than squander them.
    , @EliteCommInc.
    Absolute nonsense. People the world round handed down their property to their family members since time inmemoriam -- there's not a single thing wrong with the practice. it doesn't even have a unique place in any economic system.

    Suppose my sister inherits all of my father's goods -- she may not deserve, but those are my father's goods to hand to whom ever he chooses. I think you are simply advancing the press as contentiousness, not as any sincere advance that impacts any economy or social fare. And people have every right to contest inheritances, given that some people operate dishonestly, but minus that - it's a private matter.


    Now, if you want to discuss power inheritance as in the concept of divine or social right -- that is a completely different issue.

    You clearly haven't the faintest clue about Black African tribal dynamics, especially in the past, to question the right of tribal chiefs to sell or give away property, of whatever nature, in their domain.

    But let me make a prediction for you: if there is widespread redistribution of commercial farmland in South Africa, from people with skills, acquired over generations in many instances, to a random group of people from whatever background - the greatest likelihood is overwhelming failure.

    And my above prediction is based on sound criteria, not a thumb-suck. More than 90% of commercial farmland that has so far been redistributed in SA has been a proven failure.

    Apart from which, did you not read my previous comment? The Blacks did not win power in SA via armed struggle or revolution - their military endeavors were truly feeble - but through a process of negotiation lasting approximately 4 years. Neither were the Black liberation groups arguing from a position of strength.

    Essentially, the White population ceded the right to keep the franchise to themselves, and make it universal for all the people of the country. Certainly, there would have been no going forward if private property rights were to be infringed.

    You clearly haven’t the faintest clue about Black African tribal dynamics, especially in the past, to question the right of tribal chiefs to sell or give away property, of whatever nature, in their domain.

    You are correct, I have not studied the Black African tribal dynamics of each tribe with which the Boers interacted. Have you? How do we know which tribe had the right to sell the land? Was it a matter of which was the most powerful tribe that could knock the others off the spot, as is typically the case (even today, with nations)? In that case, even assuming the “governing documents” of the tribe authorized the ownership of land (did it? were there land registries before the Boers arrived?), did that particular tribal chief have the right to sell that land to foreigners? And did his “deed” only cover the period for so long as that chief ruled (or the tribe ruled the area), or was it really “forever”? Do you have any legal opinions documenting these transfers of land? What was the compensation paid? Was there any duress, fraud or coercion in the exchange?

    In the end to me none of it matters because inheritance is a vile evil that needs to be exterminated. Like I wrote earlier, I wish S. Africa would just take the land through progressive property taxes and suitable inheritance taxes (say, 90% or so), I think taking it outright is not fair, but then again, inheritance itself is utterly unfair, even more unfair than the “land theft” of which you complain.

    But let me make a prediction for you: if there is widespread redistribution of commercial farmland in South Africa, from people with skills, acquired over generations in many instances, to a random group of people from whatever background – the greatest likelihood is overwhelming failure.

    It’s a quite foreseeable outcome, and in that situation, as I wrote previously, I don’t think anybody should step in to help. Make your own bed and sleep in it. In my view the solution is the taxes plus paying the white farmers a good sum to teach their successors how to farm the land – i.e. to retain them as managers or consultants, but not as “owners”. It’s only rational. But if the people want to jump off the cliff that’s their business, just don’t ask me to help clean up the bloody mess.

    Certainly, there would have been no going forward if private property rights were to be infringed.

    Inheritance is not a private property “right”, it is an abomination, and the sooner this terrible abomination is destroyed, the better. (Note I am not talking about some reasonable home, to which everyone should be entitled, and if it comes from their parents and is one they grew up in so much the better, or heirlooms and the like.)

    Thanks for putting me in the company of such a wise man.

    Problem with the Boers is they were completely content being super racists for centuries but now are crying that someone wants them to leave the territory they invaded, and in which they ruled over the natives as supremacists. Mind you, the locals are not slaughtering them, or even tarring or feathering them, just taking away what isn't their's.

    And no, I don't believe in "inheritance" elsewhere, either. That is one monumental injustice that will one day be done away with. Inheritance and free market are actually opposites - you cannot have a free market when one group, whether selected by race as in S. Africa or by clan as in the "West", is born owning all the land and the other groups the serfs. That's how the feudal ages worked. Nothing's changed, except for a while, after the serfs agitated for change, the lords threw some more crumbs to the serfs. Well, in S. Africa, the masters weren't throwing enough crumbs to the slaves, and in the rest of the world, the masses will soon rise up and take what's theirs from the 1% useless and generally greedy and evil eaters who inherited it all. Unless smart people make some alternative decisions early, the result will be Communism.

    Until about 500 years ago, the Western portion of Southern Africa was mainly inhabited by Khoi-San. No Bantus, no Whites.

    Then the Whites moved in. The Bantus also moved in from the East, but did not settle South of the Fish River until long AFTER the Whites. Earlier, the Bantus (Zulu, Xhosa etc.) had seized substantial numbers in South-Eastern Africa. This is how their language picked up click sounds not found farther North.

    Together, Whites and Bantus largely displaced and annihilated the native Khoi-San. In the later 20th century, White rule gave way to Xhosa/Zulu supremacy.

    Everyone can do subsistence farming; commercial farming is quite another matter. And a mostly rural population of 3/4 million 150 years ago is a different paradigm to a mostly urban population of 60 million today.
     
    Whites give up the land they inherited (not paid for - and even if your claim is true, that some tribal chiefs were paid for some of the land, what gave these chiefs the right to sell it?), and Blacks deal with the fall-out. If they screw it up, their people starve, no assistance.

    I do think the Whites should get some compensation for their development of the land and the tools on it (but not the land itself). And in most acquisitions, the prior owners agree to stay on for a while and teach the successors how to run the business, for reasonable compensation.

    Actually my preferred option is for S. Africa to impose a property tax and inheritance tax. Inheritance tax should be really high, so that every generation, essentially, the land again ends up in the free market - not monopolized by some fucking clan. Inheritance will one day fall just like serfdom and slavery has fallen - they are all close cousins of one another.

    Recently the West keeps bubbling about democracy and human rights; the rest of world was wondering whether the West started to get out of their barbarism and moved into more civilized world, but the beastly behavior of the American and their allies in Korean War, Vietnam War, and wars in the ME simply do not help to convince rest of the world that the West wants to move into civilized world.

    Anyhow the victims are just reminding themselves not to become victim again, believing the unrepentant repeat offender's smooth talk and snakeoil sales peach is deadly and harmful to their health.

    i cannot make claim that the references concerning human behavior are unique to whites.

    History world wide is replete with these human behaviors, regardless of color. The issues I am referencing here are:

    1. to apartheid and the participation of christians in that process.

    2. to the failure of whites to incorporate the larger population into the societies they built as opposed using the majority as mere tools for their desires and the subsequent maltreatment of the same. And the resulting consequence.

    I agree with the last part but not the first.

    the dominant part of white culture is rotten to its core and I expect nothing from it but what it spews..like what flows from most of the comments here above.

    look here: western white culture is now so godawful, so creepy and ghoulish that I don't even read their news publications too much anymore. the last time I looked an expert was lamenting the ban on cannibalism..the consumption of human meat. and some american states had legalized the selling of babies..were about creating a market for live human babies.

    add to that the huge clandestine market for human body parts..Israel openly killing Palestinians and harvesting their bodies. then there is homosexual marriage, adoption,teaching homosexuality in kindergarten. then a river of gender bending while allowing children of single digit years to chose their gender, sending them for gender assignment surgery.what the hell are we looking at in the west..like it is reflected in the commentary on this page..a 100% lunatic culture, dying on its feet, literally consuming itself. lord have mercy

    The Russians are better with their Christian resurgence ..though I am not religious. and there are sane cultured and brilliant white humane people all over. but the western white collective needs to be saved from itself. and in doing so we may yet save our species..as the west seems prepared to blow the planet up as their hegemony wanes

    so I disagree with you on the morality of the white countries bringing home the white farmers of South Africa. let them go home..who cares..they are of no use to Africa

    and similarly Africa needs no expertise in any way shape or form from the old slaver..Ole Marse'.. colonizer and corporate raider extraordinaire. Africa can help itself. the further away we keep western white man the better for us. I don't for the life of me understand why the hell most Africans cant see that yet..still fooled by white propaganda

    Ramaphosa must take back the land...let the white farmers go if they want to..they are free. and accept no help from the west for African agriculture. any such help is bound to be a poisoned cup, built around high fossil fuel inputs, as it is saturated with poisonous chemicals. Africa can use none of that. we must be about feeding the people..or allowing the people to feed themselves..not to poison the people

    so if production goes down while the land is cleansed and healed, and while skills, plans and support for clean sustainable agriculture are built up, that is fine. Africa does not need to poison its land as the west has done

    the way I see things is that there is a growing opportunity in the world for the formerly dominated world to drop the west entirely, and go off on a proper, sustainable, humane path of development. Western hegemony is breaking down and it brings the opportunity for us to leave.

    and that is what we must do...leave. I don't mind if all Black people go back to Africa and leave the west lily white. there is absolutely nothing about the west, that the west has and has done that I want. I can do all I need to do for myself. I want goddam white people off my back and out of my life that's what I want

    the fools who post here believe that that is all Black people want..white life. my idea is to drop the west completely, forget about it, travel around it, over it but never through it. you guys can live as you please and so can I

    if the west reforms itself, humanizes itself that's up to the west. and if it does that and seeks re-entry into all of humanity I still would not care for the west. the decision would not be up to me along of course. but if it were my answer would not be yes. the west can live by itself, on its own cant it..all you guys here? what do you need the rest of the world for?

    the dominant part of white culture is rotten to its core and I expect nothing from it but what it spews..

    Once you take your surgical instruments and really investigate, you will find that the rotten core is the “Judeo” part of the fictional “Judeo-Christian”. Excise that putrid core and the culture will start to heal (there are also some rotten cores from the Blue Bloods and the assholes of the world but it’s a much smaller surgery which can be done after).

    A number of very uninformed commentators here are assuming that the Black tribes of Southern Africa are the original indigenous inhabitants of the land.

    Not so. The Khoisan people were indigenous to the land at the time of both Bantu (Black African) migration southwards from further north in Africa and White settlement from Europe. Not only that, but White trekkers in the early 19th century often purchased land from Black tribal chiefs, and not only simply stole land, as seems to be the narrative.

    Of course, Black tribes often dispossessed land off each other and committed genocide against each other (Shaka of the Zulus a prime example).

    Furthermore, the "New" South Africa was a negotiated settlement between the White government and Black liberation groups. The Blacks were not negotiating from a position of strength, as Mandela himself admitted. Any hint of land expropriation without compensation would have killed any negotiations dead in the water.

    As for, hey man just get off the land and we'll make it work somehow, that's fine in Wakanda, but not in real life.

    Everyone can do subsistence farming; commercial farming is quite another matter. And a mostly rural population of 3/4 million 150 years ago is a different paradigm to a mostly urban population of 60 million today.

    Whites give up the land they inherited (not paid for – and even if your claim is true, that some tribal chiefs were paid for some of the land, what gave these chiefs the right to sell it?), and Blacks deal with the fall-out. If they screw it up, their people starve, no assistance.

    I do think the Whites should get some compensation for their development of the land and the tools on it (but not the land itself). And in most acquisitions, the prior owners agree to stay on for a while and teach the successors how to run the business, for reasonable compensation.

    Actually my preferred option is for S. Africa to impose a property tax and inheritance tax. Inheritance tax should be really high, so that every generation, essentially, the land again ends up in the free market – not monopolized by some fucking clan. Inheritance will one day fall just like serfdom and slavery has fallen – they are all close cousins of one another.

    You clearly haven't the faintest clue about Black African tribal dynamics, especially in the past, to question the right of tribal chiefs to sell or give away property, of whatever nature, in their domain.

    But let me make a prediction for you: if there is widespread redistribution of commercial farmland in South Africa, from people with skills, acquired over generations in many instances, to a random group of people from whatever background - the greatest likelihood is overwhelming failure.

    And my above prediction is based on sound criteria, not a thumb-suck. More than 90% of commercial farmland that has so far been redistributed in SA has been a proven failure.

    Apart from which, did you not read my previous comment? The Blacks did not win power in SA via armed struggle or revolution - their military endeavors were truly feeble - but through a process of negotiation lasting approximately 4 years. Neither were the Black liberation groups arguing from a position of strength.

    Essentially, the White population ceded the right to keep the franchise to themselves, and make it universal for all the people of the country. Certainly, there would have been no going forward if private property rights were to be infringed.
