Are we living in a state of anarchy?

These are the main stories on News 24 today. What depressing reading they make. What does it say about our beautiful country? And how long before we are a completely failed nation? No respect for life, private property, authority, education and a corrupt government run by criminals and fraudsters.

When I read headlines like this I don’t even want to read any further. I just wish I lived somewhere else.

  1. I have just caught on your recent posts. What an awful time you are having. SA is indeed a very stressful place to live, add to that the financial situation and your concern for your daughter.

    The Boxers and I send you every good wish for easier times ahead x.

    • And yesterday a 4 month old sleeping baby was pepper sprayed in his mothers arms in an armed robbery in Durban! What type of animal can do that to a defenceless baby, they also pepper sprayed the dog and held a gun to the mother’s head whilst they made off with R250 000 worth of goods. The death penalty would be too good for these excuses for human beings!

  2. We’re getting to the stage, or are we there already, when we say “another day in SA” and forget about it.
    What irks me, though, is the often racist comments that follow after the stories.

    • Agreed pussycat, we are still a very polarized society. One gets used to shocking stories in the news but to see so many horrendous headlines on one page on the same day was quite alarming.
