Research and Policy Brief: Forewarned is forearmed - 23rd June 2011. Here is an article on the South African Institute of Race Relations (SAIRR) website which offers quite a comprehensve view of South Africa at the moment. I was very interested in his references to Julius Malema (JUJU) and where the youth is at.
I agree with the author, malema is right in one thing. The ANC has failed the youth. I also agree with the author that Malema has tapped into a mindset which is demanding more because of those failures. nationalisation cannot assist the youth. This is an argument he poses and gains support for because it offers appeal to a youth that wants more from government ... at the expense of a targeted minority.
Malema has the wrong target. His mouthing off about going to war is hype, but it can do great harm to an economy and the mndset of the youth. What happened to that work culture which was spoken about? That's the precise aspect of our society that we need to develop. A work for what you get culture.
Well, that's my view. Please feel free to add your own.
