    How often should one consider cyber-security and third party access to personal information? In the new digital age, even our biometric data, in the form of pictures for facial recognition, is available with one click of a button. You can tell a stranger your first name, and they can access many platforms with information within one day, such as…[Read more]

    • There is a price to pay for the privilege of being connected, he who is connected can be easily found. And unfortunately, no system can ever promise to be safe simply because computers can not tell who is the god guy or the bad guy. And so every door the “good guys” use is just another door for the “bad guys”. So we wont have complete safety, but…

    • To be pragmatic about it, I dont upload anything personal online. Absolutely nothing, people will always have access to what I buy or do so i just try make.it as minimal as possible. I dont engage with any ads online because it just makes me a target. I use VPN on sites I dont trust, i have a dummy cellphone number and email address for possible…

    South Africa has been in a state of terror, panic, anger, disappointment and shock this past week. These are sensitive times. Once we remove the “shock factor” followed by the accused rapists, and we purge the notion of what a rapist looks like, where they live or their social status; we will understand that all men are capable of this abominable…[Read more]

    • Interesting. How feasible do you think this is considering the costs of those psychiatric services?
        • Anything can be attained if the determination is strong enough. In the broader sense, it may seem as if it is not feasible, but people will say it is not possible until someone does it. We may want to consider it being part of the formal training of an educator or develope a new institution that trains psychologists specifically for social…

      • I hear I hear you. I think it sounds more feasible to have it incorporated into some education system as you’ve mentioned. Those systems are already in poor state, so perhaps this could be an external government agency with minimal operating staff, run like a business and the psychologists can be employed as contract workers who visit schools and…

      People, particularly the youth, mostly act on trend or hype. South Africa has been “burning” for many years. Since before the era of Zuma. Yet, only after Nene is raped and killed women feel scared and post #amInext. I have been scared my whole life, everyday there is a new story of femicide in the news. However, they never trended, therefore no…[Read more]

      • 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?
        • 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…

          • What an interesting exchange, but just to try bring the focus back to your initial post. I’ve noticed that the trends have silenced and the conversations have died. This is unfortunate, perhaps social media has the capacity to reduce the importance/reverence for serious discussions. And the focus really is about who an say something with the most likes.

            Food for Thought: You can not control how people recieve your energy. Anything you say or do gets filtered through the lens of whatever personal sentiments they have towards you or whatever personal stuff they are going through. Which is not about you. Just keep doing your thing with as much integrity and love as possible. Never try to prove…[Read more]

            These days I feel embarrassed to say that I am a black female. The way black females present themselves these days is actually depressing. I have very few role models and sadly males seem to be justifying the behaviour. I worry for the young black girls being brought up in this world. I am a feminist, I am a black woman, but I am also not afraid…[Read more]

            Jacob Zuma is a legend in his own right. I appreciate his nonchalant approach to life. But really if we are to talk real state capture, can we start with the Afrikaner Broederbond.

            I read somewhere that if people take you for granted, it is a compliment because it means that you are consistent. While it is a compliment to you, it is a danger to them; because what is consistently taken for granted will eventually be taken away.

            This stuck with me because I think everyone at some point feels as if they are taken for granted,…[Read more]

            The toxic work culture will be the death of modern humans. With the emergence of the 4th industrial revolution and the wave of cellphones with email, word and apps that make working easier; a significant shift has occurred in work culture and the associated expectations. Previously, when you left work, you had no access to a computer or laptop,…[Read more]

            A Story of True Wealth:
            ” One day, a rich father took his son on a trip to the village. Hw wanted to show him how poor some people can be. They spent time on the farm of a poor family. On their return from the trip, the father asked his son “How was the trip?” and he replied “It was great, Dad”. “Didi you see how poor people live?’ the father…[Read more]

            • Firstly, can we just say that the young man is WOKE. But it’s a really good story. It’s become so natural to replace the purpose of certain things in our lives with money, perhaps we do so because we feel more secure because we have control over it and not other humans. Sad but telling of the consistent nature of human.

              Caution, sensitive topic.

              Is abortion murder? Should South Africa enforce laws against abortion?
              (NB: I have not reflected my opinion in this statement, I would like to propose the discussion before I engage.)

              • Abortion is by far one of the most controversial topics. Needless to say, there are people on both ends of the spectrum and all in between when it comes to the question of whether or not abortion constitutes murder. The definition of murder transcends the law of man, and is determined by the law of nature, nature’s true God, and His Word. Before h…

              • What a question @thirdeye. My opinion is that abortion is murder and that’s that. Aside from any religious context murder is murder. However, people who believe to the contrary would argue that if it can be justified then it is not murder. And some take it even further by saying no one can dictate what a woman can or cant do with her body.

                The…
