I am not going to complain(at least not too much), but, South Africans can be(and are) an apathetic bunch. There seems to be a lot more interaction amongst other nationalities here.
There are far more of us(I am one) here than you realise( could even be more than Canadians, but who knows, the poll taken was hopelessly not responded to) Most seem to be in smaller towns, placed by the likes of Dragon Recruiters etc, who only care about themselves( so common, I wonder where they learned that) They certainly could not get away with what they do here back home, they would be lynched (figuratively)etc.
It is still legal to carry a firearm(gun)- mine was and is a big one with 16 bullets(rounds) which is neccessary because of the high crime rate,and
TAKE NOTE, in central Johannesburg, the murder rate is 12 times higher than the worst getto in the USA. Other areas are not much better.
Everybody is close to or knows someone who has been a victim of a shooting/stabbing/hi-jacking/armed robbery/rape and other such violence.
No jokes, I have been stabbed twice, shot once.
I am not looking to blame anyone, or to look for reasons,but the people are far more strong and determined back home.
It is almost as if they lose it all here(like Samson with short hair,Ben Johnson with no steriods)
Comparatively, Taiwan is a peaceful paradise.
written by a vindictive Frank Alexander form Hsinchu - I doubt if it is his real name, the lying coward.
Why I say South Africans are apethetic, if the same had been said about America, Canada, Australia,New Zealand(in that order of volume)- in fact almost any Western country, all hell would break lose.
So, fellows, make yourself heard.
You are screwing it up for yourself and for others, now and in the future.
So, get off your butt and get motivated.
You do not have to settle for such abuse.
