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

    Is society emasculating men in the “holy” name of Feminism?

  • There is a 1,4% increase in terms of the unemployment rate in SA, leading to an overall of 29,0% in Q2. Each time an individual is unemployed, at least 5 – 12 lives are affected. Do you think that South Africa can improve these unemployment rates? If so, how?

  • King K changed the description of the group Group logo of At the Crossroads with Kaya FMAt the Crossroads with Kaya FM from “Topic – South African Youth: Are they entitled or are they misunderstood and how can they play catch up to their peers on the continent.

    With the significant high number of youth unemployment in South Africa – are they entitled to a job straight after university or should more youth in South Africa create their own path of success by embracing entrepreneurship from their chosen fields of qualification.” to “Topic – The impact of conflict on economic development: Is Africa able to resolve her own conflict?

    • Can Africa, but most importantly can South Africa afford the conflict we find ourselves in?
    • What are the causes of conflict?
    • What is the true cost of the conflict?
    • Who or what is fueling it (Conflict)?
    • If not who or what – who is paying for it?” 3 weeks, 3 days ago

  • Conflict is a very interesting topic, it’s the final step; the very edge where our differences set us clearly apart

    • 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

        • 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.
            • 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.
              • 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…

              • Do you think that as a country we have more conflicts than solutions? Or is it the process of finding solutions that we find difficult to grasp?
                  • 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…

                  • Based on your argument, you are stating that “unity” is our biggest problem – which is followed by accountability…was there a point in time, post-apartheid where we have had a strong foot on those two aspects
                    • Yes we have conflicts but it should be anything we cant educate people about. People are easily convinced to hand over their power to the promises of politicians. And so people need to educated and stand together in knowledge and build society
                    • @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…

                      We live in a world where so much emphasis is placed on developing systems. And yet the one thing that lacks the most is the development of society.

                      I really wonder what requirements SA police need to meet to get the jobs they have. Maybe boiling a kettle and knowing how to remove extra dough inside of fate cake

                      Why do South Africans destroy infrastructure when they protest? It’s really strange

                      What do you think most people that you know would choose between 10% power over one million people or 100% power over 10 people?

                      @brutallyblunt conflict is about power hey? Everyone needs a bit of power here and there but why do some people want so much of it? What does it give them that they don’t have?

                      • See, the pertinent question is why do they want power to begin with. Those who have been oppressed now live to oppress, but this time their own. This power they chase gives them a sense of justice, the justice they never had from those that made them slaves.

                        July coming up, new month, new hope. Let’s talk conflict why is there so much conflict in Africa? In politics, within the same party, over resources, over almost anything ? Let’s talk conflict

                        • A divided Africa will never stand. But maybe the problem is that our differences dont allow us to build together because everyone is trying to get their way.
                          • Americans have the Amerian dream and the pride of their Army. The English have the standard of Great Britain to live up to. Germany has a reputation of precision and order they fight for, China has discipline, Japan has order and hard work. Thina we have ama piano 👀
                            • @TheGuy. People are hungry for justice, power is a means to appease that hunger and it’s perfect because it affects everyone. It was really about power, there would be very little reason for them to abuse it because what would they have against their abusers?
