Learning from History

President Zuma blames Apartheid and says that Land Seizures are now required. Farmers can have maximum 12,000 hectare farms or two farms.

My comments ...

Blame is one of our oldest emotions and it starts with anger, jealously and coverting another person's stuff. The Old Testament has a law against it, "thy shalt not covet". In Buddhism, Anger and Jealousy are considered to be Mind Poisons. And in my opinion, depression generally, is caused by one person feeling less than another person.

The word blame appears in google 207 million times. Jealously 39 million times. Jealous 117 million. Anger 172 million times. Angry 440 million times.


History has shown that land (asset) seizures are always a requirement when a government has failed its people!

It chooses one or more scapegoats and blames them for all its ills, whilst telling the rest of its people that it is right and that they MUST continue voting for the government to get their rights.

This is often done by adding secrecy laws and then enacting draconian measures to ensure that the government stays in power and this usually happens "democratically", i.e. the people who aren't INITIALLY effected by these measures, agree to them.

This government then takes those people's property which increases the government's wealth incredibly, and therefore to keep the "electorate", ie its supporters happy. But this "ponzi-scheme" typically lasts 15 to 100 years at which point the country goes insolvent and is usually taken over by another country. During the 15 to 100 years, typically millions more people either become poor / destitute, or leave the country, or are murdered by the regime / dictatorship / kingdom.

One should note that poor people are often self sufficient. They might not have electricity, but they also might own land and be completely self-sufficient in food, shelter, clothing, etc. But they are deemed "poor" because they don't have electricity and therefore don't contribute to the fiscus!

What I don't understand is how this supports what President Zuma said at Davos last month, "South Africa" is open for business"?

Ending World Poverty and Wage Slavery - and creating an environment to meet our Galactic Neighbours

In today’s age, we have two problems. Maybe more. But basically two.

The first:

We need to understand the difference between a Puzzle and a Mystery. A Puzzle is when you put the 1000 pieces together and there is a missing piece. You know exactly what is missing. A Mystery is where you have all the information, but you don’t know where to look. This is where we are today, and hence why Computer Scientists are now called Data Scientists. We have everything at our fingertips. A device you carry in your hand has all the information that has ever been invented on it; it can take you places; phone anyone in the world; look at colour maps and drawings of anything. And for free! Or it seems free until you are looking for the needle in the haystack. And when you want to find that needle fast, you need to find the person who can find it for or with you and wouldn’t you say that they should be compensated for that gift that they bring you?

Note that I use the word “Compensation” not “payment”. Comp…

Why we are here

Answering the big questions! Why are we here? What is our mission? What does God want from us? How do we meet God whilst we are still alive? How do we travel to meet our Galactic Neighbours amongst trillions of stars in millions of galaxies?
The world is given to us to manage so that our children can inherit it, in a better shape than we found it. That is our mission, plain and simple.
It is in Genesis chapter 1, verse 28, which says that we should "go forth and multiply, and replenish the earth." If we are to be like the sand on the beach, is this by having children? Or is it by having ideas?
We are given two tools. Temptation and Free Will.
Temptation includes things like Gas, Oil, Uranium, Coal. Fossils that fossilise our thinking. Things we can dig out of the ground and burn. And so we are just pyromaniacs! And temptation includes Corruption, Money Laundering, Rape, Taking things that don't belong to us; Slander; Undermining others; etc.
Free WIll is when you override yo…
