    The question of abortion being legal or not will always be answered based on some belief. Now in a society with so many beliefs, and diversity can we ever reach any consensus? And if not what are we building, and where are our leaders leading us too?

    • You know at times I feel that there isn’t a clear direction moving forward – it honestly feels like leaders are addressing issues for the moment, without the vision of the possible future outcome
      • @kingk that’s how it feels to me. But in truth, it looks like our diversity is going to sink us slowly into more confusion and destruction. Because even out very leaders lead from the assumption that we have shared values. And so they do what they think will make everyone happy. And that is not necessarily what’s good for everyone.
          • Very true. In theory you can’t make everyone happy but I suppose they can make decisions to address the concerns of the majority (just a thought)
          • I agree. After all we all want health we all want physical security or safery and we all want stability.

            But it’s also important to accept that, at some point our differences will hinder the achievement of all these things. No leader can meet the standards of everyone. And so I’m convinced that general leadership ends at some point because if…

          Vodacom Group [JSE:VOD] and MTN Group [JSE:MTN] shares fell after one of the competition regulators ruled that SA’s two largest mobile-phone companies overcharge customers for data – particularly those on lower incomes. Vodacom, majority owned by UK-based Vodafone Group, and MTN had a combined 75 million customers in South Africa at the end of…[Read more]

          • Shares can fall. But what’s important is that the cost to communicate decreases. South Africans are paying insane amounts of money for mobile data. So its imperative that we fix this

            Jealousy is ugly and evil at the same time…
            Many people glamourize jealousy by saying it’s a sign of love. It’s not! It’s a sign of insecurity and reflective of seeing your partner as an object to be possessed. It’s a negative emotion stemming from both desire and insecurity, but not love. In my opinion; Being jealous of anyone is just plain “nasty”

            Non-alcoholic drinks are becoming a trend in South Africa and you’ll notice the shelves in your local liquor store are well-stocked with zero alcohol ready-to-drink gin and tonics and low/zero alcohol beer, ciders. This is pretty obvious, but consuming lower ABV drinks means you’re less likely to get trollied and do something regrettable – if you…[Read more]

            The fundamental purpose of religion that we can measure, is that it gives hope. But hope alone needs to back up hard work. So why does it seem as Africans yhat we stop at hope??

            My issue of the day is the concept of people refusing to change money because the idea of keeping it gives them pride. Some people would rather starve than change their R200 bill, or even a R50 bill. Some even will use their friends’ money so that they do not have to change theirs. What do you think

            • Perhaps the larger question should be, why are we not working towards a cash free society, with locally owned institutions owing such

              I often wonder what is true happiness. Is it circumstantial? Depending on what is happening in our lives, jobs, relationships, finances etc.? Or can people reset their attitude toward happiness and cultivating happiness from the inside, out; as I believe?

              I also believe when we let go of our limiting beliefs, we can finally experience freedom,…[Read more]
