Extra Blunt on Friday

    I will rate your comment with ONE starr until you become the change you desire to see based on the comment you’ve made. Which is to say, until you come up with a solution now that you have identified a problem
      • I find this very interesting, the fact that some humans feel the need to attack at every given opportunity. An opinion is merely an opinion, and your one star does not define or impact my life or my character. Regardless of what I reply to you on this forum, you will never be aware of the depth of my impact on society. There is so much weakness…

      Okay, let’s start with you who has observed such a discrepancy. What do you propose as a solution to this mess of a problem?
      • Extra Blunt on Friday posted a new activity comment 5 months, 2 weeks ago

        What’s up Herbert, how can we offend each other towards mutual agreement and a common goal today
        • Extra Blunt on Friday posted a new activity comment 6 months ago

          The answer may vary but it is far more suitable for South Africa to take a capitalist stance because we need to encourage a culture of rewarding hard work. Those who fall behind will get government grant

            In cultures and countries across the world, there is a central idea of reward, or achieving reward as a consequence of being successful. And these cultures have thrived throughout time and so we should adopt this method of valuation. You are only as important as the results you can achieve
            • Extra Blunt on Friday posted a new activity comment 6 months ago

              And so what do you suggest?
                • There is no simple answer to that. Both extremes are equally dangerous. Capitalism/meritocracy just translates human failure to themselves and discounts any other justifiable factor. The other extreme seeks to make life fair and in turn produces a society in capable, entitled and horribly calibrated to deal with the tragedies of life

                    @freeworld it’s not that unity is a problem, it’s that we dont have any. And yes, there is no accountability, because people arent in unity (agreement) and so we cant expect any accountability for any solution.

                    We never have because never had unity. The last time we had some measure of being in agreement was when we were all oppressed and killed…

                    • You see, the last point you raised about “Our difference mean more than any reason to agree (unity)” is the perfect perception to explain where we stand as a country…

                      You can not bond to metals together unless you melt them.

                      Finding a solution suggests that there is an agreement between everyone involved. The beginning of finding a solution is unity. Only then can we talk about solutions. Because if we do so now it that solution will fail because of our very division. ACCOUNTABILITY ACCOUNTABILITY…

                      I mean that we dont have any accountability to one another. We tread lightly because we dont want to offend one another because of these silly differences. So we need to all go into a place where we put our differences behind our one common goal. And far often countries that do this have mandatory military service. We on the other hand just live…

                      You are far too kind. The diversity of this country will be its undoing if there is nothing that we all hold as a national pride. Unfortunately braai and pap are not enough.

                      Once we have something we all hold as superior standard, we wont have to worry about people compromising the rest of us because they dont have a sense of accountability to…

                      • What do you mean it will be our undoing, and I dont think having national pride would have any meaningful effect. In the end people need to work toward the common goal, and with suspicion of outside sources at play in influencing our society, a simple solution such as yours seems ignorant to that.

                        Perhaps we need the people to be soooo oppressed that they would revolt. Perhaps destruction is the only thing that makes society wake up.
                          • That’s poor thinking. People need patience, people need ethical leadership. This is what will eliminate conflict and all its effects.
                          • Extra Blunt on Friday posted a new activity comment 7 months ago

                            Even so, conflict is neccessary Chief. Two realities can not exist simultaneously. One most rule, one authority must rule, once agenda, one power.
                              • Though there should be a limit. There is an African Proverb that goes When elephants fight, it is the grass that suffers.

                                Similarly, the political conflict in our country had and will forever affect the South African people. So although it’s good to have differences, that conversation should be constructive not what we are currently seeing

                                How do they present themselves? And why is it worrying?

                                  Let’s question first why humans want validation and appreciation. Reward is just a means to an end.

                                    Interesting because your very stance is socially acceptable
