Q: Are you following what's going on in South Africa?

In case you haven't, white farms are close to being evicted from the lands they own. There is a civil war looming. 

 

Aussies have begun the process of accepting refugees from South Africa.  I think all other western countries should step up as well, sad to see stuff like this in 2018

I've been sort of following it, but it hasn't been in the news as much as you'd expect.

 

From what I remember of history Zimbabwe did the same thing, beat and evicted the white farmers and gave the land to Mugabe's mates who didn't know the first thing about farming. A few years later the land was just weeds, there were food shortages and the economy was wrecked. Look at the place now.

 

And now S.A is looking to do the same thing. Maybe there's something I'm missing here but if they are making the same mistake that would just be monumentally stupid IMO.

I read yesterday, Zuma has been on trial for corruption ... Whites in SA anticipated 'blacks are taking over' long time ago. I met few white SAfricans in 2008 in Guernsey and they all planned of moving abroad ....

This does not help change the racism agenda as a talking point around the world. The world really needs a black run country that functions well as an example that it can be done. A black run country that actually produces food with a stable government and reasonable tolerance and crime statistics would be a good start, but sadly, I'm not holding my breath for it to happen. South Africa could have been the start especially with Mandela in the history to set an example for the world. Reminds of the corruption of Gary, Indiana and the results. The lower crop production has already started and some white encampments are producing more food with hydroponics than the former farms they had. All that knowledge and ability will be in Australia soon, gives them an excuse not to take North Africa refugees and get more talent for the country.

Let them do it then have a good laugh when their economy crashes and there is widespread food shortages across the country.

Just wait, in ten years they'll be begging for them to come back because they don't know proper farming techniques.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
