When the apartheid regime collapsed in 1991, it was hoped that racial tensions could finally heal in South Africa, and prosperity would finally be had by all. Unfortunately, South Africa was promptly taken over by socialists who have been running the nation into the ground ever since. Now we may be witnessing the flash point that could disintegrate the multicultural nation.
Last Friday, South African president Jacob Zuma called for the confiscation of land owned by whites, who are a minority in the country, and who own a disproportionate amount of land and wealth. Specifically, he called on parliament to change the constitution, so that the government could confiscate white owned land without compensation.
Zuma wants a “pre-colonial land audit of land use and occupation patterns” to help decide which lands need to be taken, and has said that “We need to accept the reality that those who are in parliament where laws are made, particularly the black parties, should unite because we need a two-thirds majority to effect changes in the constitution.” It’s believed that Zuma is calling for this radical action in response to the rise of a rival political party known as the Economic Freedom Fighters, who have long called for the confiscation of white owned lands.
The chairman for the white activist group known as the Boer Afrikaner Volksraad, responded to these statements by calling for diplomacy. “We need urgent mediation between us and the government. If this starts, it will turn into a racial war which we want to prevent.” However, the organization later stated that “Deprivation, dispossession and occupation of our country in terms of any law shall be considered formal acts of war against the Boer Afrikaner people, which we have to defend against and retaliate with internationally accepted means and methods in order to ensure our ownership and recovery.”
Clearly, land confiscations could lead to an ethnic civil war in South Africa. Moreover, it would most likely lead to the economic collapse of Africa’s wealthiest nation. Zimbabwe for instance, successfully confiscated lands from whites decades ago. The wealth flight from that country, coupled with the fact that the land was given to people who weren’t qualified to work it, contributed to the financial collapse of Zimbabwe and the hyperinflation that followed.
