What it means to be radical
By Mike Smith
10 April 2010
When we think about radicalism, most of us conjure up images of demonstrating crowds throwing stones and bottles at the police. We think of clenched fists, out of control anger, base-ball bats, tear gas and rubber bullets…we equate radicalism to chaos…
The truth is that radicalism is not chaos. Radicalism is the answer to chaos.
Let us not pussyfoot about. The ANC have destroyed South Africa. A once beautiful first world country, a nuclear power with a space program has been reduced to another African basket case where crime, corruption and misrule can be seen on a daily basis, just like the rest of Africa.
It is time for radical intervention
South Africa is the equivalent of an out of control train crashing through buildings and smashing people left right and centre to a pulp.
The patient, hit by the train, is lying on the ground and two paramedics are there. The one is the DA (Left) administering Paracetamols and the other is the Freedom Front Plus (Right) slapping the patient through the face a few times. Both methods are useless and the patient will die.
What the patient needs are not two paramedics with boxes of Band-Aids and Paracetamols. The patient needs a surgeon that can perform precise surgical intervention!
And that is what it means to be radical. Radical does not mean a bull in a China shop. Radical does not mean kicking the patient and beating his chest with fists hoping to revive him…No Radicalism means precision surgical intervention.
If we want our country back, that is what we need to do. We need intelligent people who can surgically intervene, cut out the cancer in our midst and lead the patient not only to a full recovery, but to an improved state of being.
After the brutal death of Eugene Terre’Blanche at the hands of machete wielding Blacks who hacked him to pieces, it shocks me to read forums and comments on the internet where people say, “We have to make plans. We must not be hasty now. We must think this through before we act….et cetera.“
Imagine if a trauma doctor says, “Wait, let us think this through properly, let us not be hasty…” when he is confronted with a casualty at the brink of death. No he needs to act. He needs to shout orders. “You do this, you bring that…it is not the time to have a conference or a debate on what to do. people need to ACT.
Come to think of it…Should these plans not have been made already? Should the contingencies not have been in place already? Should the training and education not have been done already? It is not as if the signs and warnings were not there…people just ignored it and pretended that there was no trauma. Our enemies must be laughing at us. What have we been doing for the last few years?
Then suddenly we are confronted with a bleeding, dying patient at our hands…
People, now is not the time to think. Now is not the time to discuss and ponder what to do. Now is not the time for training and contingency plans. These things should have been done yesterday. Now is the time to ACT. Now is the time for precision, clinical surgical intervention by highly qualified surgeons…or the patient will die…
That is what is meant by radicalism. We do not need Rambos…we need McGyvers…
