    I agree and was certainly not implying that land should be turned over, just that they ARE guilty. A system of shared ownership, or something, needs to occur where labour output increases is an incentive to employment and salary, or something socialist like that even though I am not socialist. The place is just so messed up that Capitalism will not work.

    Yeah its a mess, but it also has more potential than just about any other African nation in the near term. If they could just get it together, they could be a prosperous nation.

    They certainly can and the few Afrikaners that I know here wish it could but have no positive suggestions as to how...

    Anything that prevented systemic targeting and murder of people and the 3rd worlding of a nation is a "good system".

    They had "gotten it together" and then that terrorist was elected President and ruined the nation.

    Ian Smith should have had Mugabe and his cohorts "cleaned". what Mugabe did to Rhodesia was one of the worst crimes against humanity we have seen.

    So liberty just for you then huh? You sound like a classic authoritarian. Discrimination is wrong and immoral regardless of who the victims are. The law should never treat you differently simply because of your race or sex.
