The perspective of layman in the field of finances and politics on the situation in South Africa, and maybe even the world. Sometimes serious, but hopefully not always.
I must admit that I’m privileged in many ways and may not always understand all the frustrations of less fortunate people. I’m trying to change and to have a more open mind. So maybe this should be explained to me as the logic behind it baffles me completely. I can understand that one could be very unhappy about a non-functional toilet, and most probably I will also complain and even protest if needed to have better facilities. But I’m sure that I would rather have a toilet that may not be perfect, but somehow functional, rather than not having any toilet at all. I’m sure that having some sort of toilet system is more hygienic and convenient than other un-mentional options. So why would one destroy what you have before you have something better? This part needs be explained to me.
I'm sitting in KZN, not even close to Gauteng and the e-tolled routes, I might not even see a e-toll station for this year or the next, hopefully. Yet, each time I hear of problems at SANRAL, or protests agains the system I feel some hope rising that I might never see an e-toll bridge in our country ever again.
Why? Why would something that has so little impact in my life, at this stage, create so much simpathy for those who have to deal with it every day?
