  • How important is it to have educated leadership?

    The DA is in trouble, but Herman is doing a great job. Forget Zille, Herman should lead the DA

    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…

    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…

    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.

      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…

        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…

          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

            A society of work and reward is dangerous, but equally so is one that doesnt reward personal initiative

            • And so what do you suggest?

                  • 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
                  • 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

                    We should be weary of solutions, some challenges can not have solutions because those very solutions create the perpetual existence of those challenges.

                        Consider this. What women advocated for was to have equal opportunity to create wealth and opportunity to display their capabilities. In all that some correlation was created to say that beliefs and cultural practices where the reason why women felt stifled.

                        And so the conversation moved from chasing what is good to chasing what is “better”. What…
