There is a lie, often perpetuated by Liberal Whites, Liberal academia and Blacks standing with cupped hands at traffic lights that the root cause of crime in South Africa is poverty. Bullshit!
Poverty exists amongst many nations. India and Pakistan has extreme poverty that will make Blacks in Gugulethu fall on their knees and thank God for the country they live in, yet the crime in Pakistan is almost on par with White countries. In South Africa there are almost half a million whites living in poverty, yet they rank amongst less than one percent of criminals in our prisons. Poverty is not the cause of crime, poverty is not an excuse for crime and poverty is certainly not a justification for crime.
Murder and Rape can never be justified by poverty or hunger. When you are hunger you steal a bread, you do not rape and kill old women. Many murders on White South Africans are carried out by Blacks who seldom steal anything. Often the victim’s car keys and cell phone is left behind.
Some say that money is not the cause of evil, rather the lack of money is. That is nonsense. MONEY IS THE CAUSE OF ALL EVIL.
Blacks in South Africa are not poor. They have lots of money. It is what they do with that money that is evil. By giving them more money you just make the problem worse.
When I was a young boy, my dad use to say, never give Blacks money, because they will just spend it on Liquor. That is true. Why have we forgotten that?
The reason for crime in South Africa is quite simple. It has four root causes.
1. The nature of the Beast
2. Alcohol and drug dependency
3. A lack of severe physical punishment for criminals
4. Liberal Whites throwing money at Blacks
Some say there is a fifth reason, namely education or the lack thereof. But I disagree. Western education is wasted on Blacks just as much as I waste my time trying to teach my dog about Nuclear energy. Reward & Punishment is all that works with my dog and at least I get him to follow some rules and orders. Sometimes I think he is more educatable than the species of Homo Lignum Caputus.
Coming back to why Blacks are criminals and my four reasons above…
Blacks are pre-programmed scavengers and opportunistic thieves. They have a lower IQ and therefore can only survive by scavenging and stealing. They also do not see their acts as criminal and seldom have any remorse. They do not have the intelligence to plan offspring and therefore have evolved with a sexual urge beyond what we call normal. It is all about survival of the species ala Darwanism.
Stealing and raping is what blacks do to survive. What we call anti-social behavior is what Blacks call survival. It is instinctive. (Point number one). They simply have no other way to survive as a species. In Freudian terms it is called the basic survival instincts of the ID which is Sex and Aggression. Creating life and killing life. Blacks have not evolved past this point.
According to Freud, human beings have two other traits namely the Ego and Super Ego. Ego consists of logical and rational thinking. It enables humans to analyze the realistic risks and benefits of a situation, to tolerate some pain for future profit,
Super Ego consists of moralistic standards and forms the basis of the conscience. Although the superego is essential to a sense of right and wrong, it can also include extreme, unrealistic ideas about what one should and should not do.
The Super Ego is the problem that Liberals have (point number 4) and is contributing to the crime in South Africa. They have unrealistic ideas about the origins of crime and what should be done to punish criminals.
That brings me to point number three. Punishment. In his books on his experiences in Africa, Dr. Albert Schweitzer describes Blacks as children that needs to be taken care of. He really loved blacks, but it was in a way a veterinary surgeon loves animals. Dealing with animals and children, we know that appropriate physical pain is the only means of preventing a repeat of the deed that was done. It is also to their own benefit. A child only needs to burn his fingers on a hot stove once to know never to do it again. A dog only needs to take a leak against an electric fence once to know not to do it again.
Prisons as we know it, where people are removed from society for years on end is only about 150 years old. Before that, prisoners were kept only for short periods until found guilty and were then severely punished physically or killed.
If we decide to keep prisoners for extended periods of time, we need to put them to work to pay back to society what they have taken. The current system of imprisonment is a burden on us, the law-abiding citizens. We are being punished, not the criminals. We are paying through our necks to feed and keep these bastards out of society. It is just another example of Liberals and humanists throwing money at a problem without solving anything. Criminals come out of prisons schooled to be better criminals. The majority of crimes are committed by repeat offenders who have been to prison already.
The point I saved for last is number two. Alcohol and drug dependency.
Strange how Blacks are always complaining about how poor they are, yet Friday afternoons you see then coming from the Liquor store with trolleys full of beer, brandy and whisky. How come there is always money for alcohol but not for food? Here we have to pause and come back to point number one, namely “The nature of the beast”.
I once asked two educated Black guys why do they not come and live in a White neighborhood and raise their kids properly…away from the townships? They just chuckled and told me that I did not mean what I was saying. I said I did, but then came the explanation.
They told me that in South Africa Blacks have something they call “Puza Thursday”. It means drinking and partying on Thursday, because that is when the weekend starts for Blacks. Friday is a half day of idling, because nobody actually works on a Friday, so they do not mind pitching up hung-over at work on a Friday, just to collect the pay packet.
After work they go straight to the Liquor store or Shebeen and buy alcohol for the weekend. Friday night the actual party starts. A goat gets slaughtered in the backyard and the meat is cooked on an open fire, not the way Whites braai on a grid over coals…directly in the flames. The Kwaito music blaring in the background and coming even louder from the neighbors around them.
Blacks do not have two beers or glasses of wine like Whites. Their aim is to get as drunk as possible in the shortest possible time in the least expensive way. When a bottle is opened it must be finished. The case of beer is drunk empty. Blacks drink from thursday afternoon until Monday morning around 3 o’clock. They sleep for a few hours and then go to work half pissed.
So in effect, they only work two days of the week, namely Tuesday and Wednesday, but it takes your body about three days to recover from a binge, so those two days they work actually is half done.
In the old days of Apartheid, Shebeens (informal drink houses) were illegal and only a few were operating under the radar. To get a liquor license in those days were very expensive and your property had to conform to strict regulations for toilets, etc and regular inspections were carried out by the Police. When the ANC came to power, they legalized all the Shebeens, so today you find that every second shack in the Black township is a Shebeen. The toilets are behind the shack under the African sky. When Blacks get drunk they start stabbing each other and raping the equally drunk females. Anybody living in or near a Black township will tell you how the sirens (police, ambulance and fire brigade) start blaring on a Friday and stops on Monday morning.
In my opinion, the abuse of alcohol and drugs is the biggest cause of crime in South Africa. Sort out the Shebeens and you solve half of the problem.
