    Worldviews matter. They always have. It’s not enough to change governments or constitutions or even to have a constitution as we are learning in the United States.
    South Africa is falling apart at the seams. Why? The character of the people.
    Consider these comments from Josh Gelernter at National Review:
    Things are very bad in South Africa. When the scourge of apartheid was finally smashed to pieces in 1994, the country seemed to have a bright future ahead of it. Eight years later, in 2002, 60 percent of South Africans said life had been better under apartheid. Hard to believe — but that’s how bad things were in 2002. And now they’re even worse. When apartheid ended, the life expectancy in South Africa was 64 — the same as in Turkey and Russia. Now it’s 56, the same as in Somalia. There are 132.4 rapes per 100,000 people per year, which is by far the highest in the world: Botswana is in second with 93, Sweden in third with 64; no other country exceeds 32.
    Before the end of apartheid, South African writer Ilana Mercer moved, with her family, to Israel; her father was a vocal opponent of apartheid, and was being harassed by South African security forces. A 2013 piece on World Net Daily quotes Mercer as saying, with all her anti-apartheid chops, that ‘more people are murdered in one week under African rule than died under detention of the Afrikaner government over the course of roughly four decades.’

    I am surprised their are no comments about this article.

    Many would call it racism.

    I took a course at YSU some years ago and we studied Africa. That continent is a real mess.

    They have many men who have fathered over 25 children in many different villages and do not have a relationship with even one of their children. Many medical experts estimate that 90% of the people are HIV positive. They have gangs of children that have AK47's and rob and kill to eat. The clean water situation is a disaster.

    I do not know what to think of what is called " colonialism". The Europeans came there and built railroads, bridges, roads, schools, hospitals, and large farms. There was employment for anyone who wanted a job. But the Europeans ruled the governments.

    The native Africans rebelled and took over most nations. But now they have few railroads, roads, schools, and hospitals. They have a lot of violence and corruption. Wars are very numerous. Disease is widespread.

    It could simply be a matter of the Europeans brought the Bible to Africa. Of course many that proclaimed to be Christians, were not. But it may be a matter of God's laws are perfect and if one does not have His Holy Spirit, it is good to at least have His laws.

    God's laws are far better than the witchdoctors that are gaining ground there. Also Islam prospers anywhere there is chaos.

    What are your thoughts about this.


    Grace to you

      I hurt for the people under such a great oppression of crime. I am not sure what to make of South Africa's situation and how it got this way.

      At one time apartheid was seen as the biggest evil. And perhaps it was, in that country at that time. Certainly there were atrocities committed under the regime. Isn't it true of every worldly government? Some are less careful about covering it up.

      In retrospect it seems obvious the worst thing to happen to that country is Democracy, and/or its collapse resulting in the failure of civility. Is it accurate to say all it did was exchange one class of ruling thugs for a far worse class? It is complicated. Mandela was expected to be the great hero, the people's savior. But he could not hold it together (if that was ever his goal).

      Looking at the path of destruction in the wake of "spreading Democracy", it amazes me that the USA [edit: I mean its citizens] has supported spreading this social disease over the globe, and allowed our government to be rebranded so by socialists.

      Nevertheless, it is a miracle that God still brings good out of great evil. We have brothers and sisters in South Africa, as elsewhere. They're in my prayers every day.

        Amen, liberals always preach , democracy. In a democracy, the majority can vote to have the minority murdered for no just reason. Just as they did in Greece to have Socrates murdered for simply speaking his opinion about their false gods.

        The US is a Republic that is supposed to be ruled by a set of laws. There is a set way to pass these laws and the people vote for their representatives to pass these laws. But no law can be passed that is against the supreme law of the land, the US Constitution.

        But we have a POTUS that ignores our constitution, along with many of the people.

        People should be warned about what happens in a democracy by watching Africa.

        Our forefathers said our Republic would only stand as long as the people read and knew the Bible. They were right. The problem is that even the preachers in our churches do not know The Holy Scriptures, let alone the people in those churches. They are easily led astray.

        Very sad.

          We have an African in the Whitehouse right now. Looks like he wants this to be just like home. And he has accomplished much in his small time in power. I think the downhill ride has slowly been building. ..... Steve

            Hi Steve,

            His father was from Africa, but his mother was Caucasian. But his loyalty is defiantly towards Africa, not the US.

            The church he attended for over 22 years awarded Louis Farrakhan their "Man of the year" award. Farrakhan is , of course a Black Muslim Supremist.

            I read the doctrine they posted on the internet ( before they took it down when Obama ran for POTUS). It was almost word for word the same as the White NAZI, except it had the word black, instead of white in it. They mentioned many times that they were loyal to Africa, not the US.
