thanks for the share of knowledge.

It's sad that the world is so beautiful but it contains such misery.

That is a contrast that has always confused me as well.

Gotta get the new iphone,. need more platinum.

Sadly people here just do not want to admit cause and effect, especially when the cause is the low price on that new phone.

Exactly.

When I was in my young teens I listened to Rage because I liked their sound. It wasn't until I got older that I realized they were trying to tell me something.

WAKE UP

Vietnow is actually my favorite song.

I actually didn't care for rage until I listened to the words. When I was younger I had no interest in anything but kick me in the face Metal. Rage was not only then something I could relate to, but also helped me expand my view of the world and music.

Very shocking story. Just watching it on UK C4 News. The 'ANC' has been so heavily Corporate Captured that it is in danger of going the way of DemoCraps & RepubliCons. Sad, sickening & spine stiffening !

A miner's quote from the TV news : "We work hard in a dangerous place with dangerous machinery (but) we can't even afford to send our kids to school or feed and clothe them".

The mine is a Platinum Mine btw !!!

Thanx for posting.

Same bodies buried hungry, but different last names. These vultures robbing everything leave nothing but chains. Pick a point on the globe, yes the pitch is the same.

You forgot the quotation marks. It is a song lyric, right?

(just bumping you Richard, no biggie)

It is a song :)

Something's never change, do they? You know they've been mining precious metals - gold - in Africa for over five hundred years now? And until recently always with an enslaved population.

This just happened yesterday. It's the "anti apartheid" government that did this.

[-] 2 points by shadz66 (19985) 2 years ago

That's a cheap shot & the ANC are far from a Revolutionary Party Now. Mandela was a great man BUT he sold out The 99% very early on after / before release. He stood his ground on the basic ideals but much was lost thereafter. Consider : "They" sounded him out when he was still imprisoned on Robben Island and indeed - had he not been amenable to 'Their' interests he'd have been 'Heart Attacked' before release or soon thereafter !!!

I respect Mandela and those who struggled against Apartheid. It seems though that while "Jim Crow" aspects of the old regime were indeed wiped away, the poverty of the majority has not been relieved.

[-] 1 points by shadz66 (19985) 2 years ago

Exactly. Though the abject abhorrence of Apartheid was removed, the deeper social inequalities remain. The ANC's failure to ensure that the proceeds of the wealth of this rich country are shared with deep investment in society ... because 'investment' IS what it is or rather would be as it will give huge returns in future ... will spell their diminution if not demise. They will have to refind their soul or move over.
