"For Whom Mandela Calls"

"For Whom Mandela Calls"Why did those against whom Nelson Mandela seemed to be fighting (and apartheid is the same phenomenon of Western civilization as fascism) sang odes to him during his lifetime, and now they will give a real show of his funeral?


All the world's media, the whole West, are buzzing with sad words to the death of 95-year-old fighter against apartheid Nelson Mandela.

So it was in life - the Western world made of it its sentimental legend, proving the unprecedented humanism of the West itself. Stars, presidents, heads of corporations, representatives of the world establishment, the great and most promoted came to him. He was the legalized number one revolutionary after the death of Gandhi.

Why? Have you ever been tormented by this question? Why did those against whom Mandela seemed to be fighting (and apartheid is the same phenomenon of Western civilization as fascism) sang odes to him during his lifetime, and now they will arrange a real show of his funeral? It has already been announced that Obama will come to bid farewell to the greatest western legend. Finishing beautiful history Mandela.

Perhaps this question can be answered by Naomi Klein’s book “The Doctrine of Shock,” an excerpt from which I quote: “February 11, 1990, two weeks after he wrote this note, Mandela was released from prison. He enjoyed the reputation of a living saint, perhaps like no other in the world. The inhabitants of South Africa fervently celebrated this event, they were firmly convinced that nothing could stop their struggle for liberation. Unlike Eastern Europe, the liberation movement in South Africa was not defeated, it gained momentum. Mandela at that time overcame the strongest cultural shock: he even took the camera’s microphone as “the newest look weaponscreated while [he] was in prison.


The negotiations on the end of apartheid dealt with two big themes that often intersected: politics and economics. And, of course, most people's attention was riveted on political summit meetings between Nelson Mandela and the leader of the National Party, F.V. de clerk. De Klerk’s strategy in these negotiations was to retain as much power as possible. To do this, he tried many proposals: splitting the country, introducing a federation, giving veto rights to minority parties, leaving a certain percentage of seats in government structures behind each ethnic group — anything, just not to introduce the majority principle, which, he was sure, would entail for a large-scale expropriation of land and the nationalization of corporations.

As Mandela later said, “The National Party tried to maintain White’s superiority with our consent.” Weapons and money stood behind de Klerk, but his opponent was supported by millions of people. Mandela and his chief negotiator, Cyril Ramaphosis, were able to win on almost every point.

Much less noticeable on the background of these summits, where the situation often seemed explosive, there were other negotiations concerning the economy. Basically, they were conducted by the ANC by Thabo Mbeki, then the rising star of the party, and now the president of South Africa. In the course of the negotiations, the National Party could understand that the parliament would soon be in the hands of the ANC, and then the party of the South African elites focused their energy and intellectual forces on the economic negotiations. The whites of South Africa had to cede black government, but the wealth accumulated during the apartheid period was under threat, and they decided not to give up.

The de Klerk government used a dual strategy in these negotiations. First, referring to the “Washington consensus” popular in the minds, which was considered the only true economic program, they spoke of the key positions of the economy: trade policy or the central bank - as “technical” or “administrative” issues.

Secondly, it used the entire set of new policy instruments, such as international trade agreements, changes in constitutional law and structural adjustment programs, as instruments that allowed the transfer of power over these key positions to the hands of so-called impartial experts, economists and IMF leaders, World Bank, the General Agreement on Customs Tariffs and Trade (GATT) and the National Party - to anyone except the ANC. It was a strategy of "balkanization" - not geographic (as de Klerk first thought), but economic.

.

In these negotiations, the ANC fell into a different kind of trap - a network of cleverly composed rules and laws, woven to limit the power of elected politicians and tie their hands. While this network was entangled with the country, almost no one noticed it, but when the new government came to power and wanted to give its voters the real benefits that they expected and voted for, the network was tight and the administration felt bound hand and foot. Patrick Bond, who worked as an economic adviser at Mandela’s office in the early years of the ANC, recalls the bitter joke of the time: “Well, we have a state, but where is the power?” And when the new government tried to implement the promises of the Freedom Charter, it saw that power belongs to someone else. ”

As you can see, Nelson Mandela covered with his speeches about freedom and equality the operation to preserve the economic levers and wealth of South Africa for the Western oligarchs. That is, Mandela, willing or not, played into the hands of Western capital — whatever one may say.

The illusions of freedom and the triumph of the revolution were designed to divert attention from the important decisions made in the quiet of the cabinets. Decisions on how, with the external transfer of power to local Aborigines, to maintain real power through control of the Central Bank, treasury, corporations and financial flows.

I am far from the position of the author of the book, which is a radical socialist, calling for all property to be taken away and divided. The problem is different. Instead of waging a real struggle for economic leverage, selecting financial and natural resources from Western corporations for the benefit of his state and people, Nelson was satisfied only with beautiful words and fanfare about the freedom of Africans and the victory over apartheid.

That is why the West has made its legend of it and now grievously grieves for its death.

    I agree. Mandela is still a "holy man"! Mandela instead of apartheid (racial division) created a system of genocide against the white minority. In recent years, tens of thousands of whites have been killed by blacks.

        Of these, the Western media made IDOLS, because it was profitable.

      - Nothing changes in this world. The form is changing, the essence is practically unchanged. laughing The Russians are still arguing whether they should follow the Geyropians or "Russia has its own way!" That for which Abai scolded the Kazakhs in his words of edification, has gone nowhere. Apartheid has not disappeared. And the essence of the metropolitan-colonial system has not even changed. But the disguise at the same time appeared very sophisticated - for example, 40% of Ukrainians, despite the rather high educational qualification of the citizens of this country, in general, because of the disguise, cannot understand that they are already in a colony, the point is only disguised genocide! And now they are fighting for him on the Maidan! In Russia and in our country they understand, but they are somehow indifferent to this, like America is a force, any movement threatens war with it, therefore we will leave it as it is. In general, the disguise of colonization with the help of sovereign PSEUDO-ATTRIBUTIONS was just practiced in South Africa during negotiations with Mandela, here we read: "Decisions on how, with an external transfer of power to local aborigines, to preserve real power through the control of the Central Bank, the treasury, corporations and financial flows." - don’t you find that you used it very successfully with us? Tapericha at least replace your presidents - we won't live better. Until we change exactly this state of affairs, until we finally return control over the Central Bank, treasury, financial flows.

      On average, 50 murders are committed every day in South Africa! This is 18 thousand murders per year. In addition to this, every year in South Africa, another 18 thousand murder attempts are made.
      But the problem with crime in South Africa is not limited to murders. For example, the figure 203777 (in this case we are talking about attacks with the aim of causing serious bodily harm) cannot but be alarming.
      Last year, 18438 home thefts were committed in South Africa. Almost half of them are in the province of Gauteng, in which the capital of Pretoria and the largest financial and industrial center Johannesburg are located.

      Few countries in the world have a problem with car theft, even remotely resembling the situation in South Africa. In South Africa, a car is often seized with a person driving. The driver at the same time, as a rule, is simply thrown onto the road.
      There are areas in which drivers do not stop at a red light, especially at night. They prefer to pay a fine, but stay behind the wheel of their own car.
      "The authorities talk about a decline in crime, but every day about 50 people are killed in the country. And many crimes in South Africa are particularly cruel. When it comes to home theft, the criminals often beat the husband and rape the wife."

    Mandela - this is Stalin, on the contrary: took the country with a nuclear bomb, left it with a plow.

    I really liked the story about the life of the indigenous population. People from the jungle with the whole tribe come to the office skyscraper, do not touch anyone, do not interfere, they just live (non-violently). Gradually, white leave (evacuate) from there, disconnecting all communications (you have to pay for them, by the way). The tribe begins to relieve its natural needs into the elevator shaft, as soon as it is completely filled, they move to the neighboring one. Piss off 108 floors of the elevator shaft in just 6 months, this is not a scribble for you.

    While apartheid, South Africa occupied first places in various respects, now it is gradually slipping into the last: crime, unemployment, industry, etc. Obviously, a similar future is being prepared for us.

      -mak210: if under apartheid South Africa occupied first places for various indicators,
      Despite the boycott, which almost all countries of the world joined, the South African economy developed, almost the entire spectrum of MODERN production was produced in the country. In terms of combat readiness, the army was not inferior to the Israeli. The country began to pursue an INDEPENDENT policy.
      And HERE in the West is intensifying the company of defamation of South Africa. In order to survive, South Africa had to solve two problems - to increase the% of the white population, and to split a solid front of external enemies.
      And here an important role was played by the long-term “grater” between the Boers and the British, who “fought for the rights of blacks”, ruining the system from the inside.
      The true masters of the country were the British and Americans. Riots in mines and mines suppressed the NDA with particular cruelty. The police did not climb!
      PS Mandela came to power on the eve of the collapse of the USSR and the "drain" of South Africa’s self-sufficient ally, Southern Rhodesia. Given both the rapprochement with China and the refusal to lower oil prices, we can safely say that the "Arab spring" was preceded by the SOUTH AFRICAN ...

    Now the country is unsuitable for life. The whites left, and those who stayed live on reservations.
    The USA is also waiting for this fate. Obama is the first in a long line of black leaders.
    An acquaintance from New York (a doctor) told me that a healthy Negro came, heal his tooth, but there is no insurance and no money. When asked why he didn’t work, he answered that his ancestors of the Negro had worked for all Negro generations ahead. did not want problems. Apartheid was convenient for the blacks themselves. In the movie about Mandela (back in the USSR), they showed how he sits in the ice cream parlor for blacks with his homies, eats colorful balls of ice cream and makes terrorist attacks. I did not see such ice cream in a scoop in Minsk. And on the screen - 200. The Negro Maxim died - well .......

    2. Mandela - well ... he sat down as the leader of the terrorists, he emerged as a leader who was recognized by the whites and who won the war by non-military means. Those. in principle - by the way of Gandhi (never Indira, but the Great - Mahatma).
    3. Che - a revolutionary, well, or in other words a terrorist. Not once in a row with Gandhi, Mandela can not stand. Castro, by the way, is possible and possible, nevertheless he was able, by relatively peaceful means, to find his side a relatively distinctive path in the world in a clearly hostile environment
    4. Well ... in South Africa now it’s certainly much worse than with the white mode. Although slowly the situation seems to be changing for the better (I have a good friend - a resident there). Now it most resembles Russia of the year 1996-1997.
    5. You can still recall Yu. Rhodesia. There was not even apartheid there (the elective qualification was the presence of secondary education, which IMHO is true).
    But ... all progressive humanity, led by the USSR and the World Bank with the support of the United States, wet the country until it ended and the black bandit Mugabe came.
    So ... South Africa did not kill the USSR, but rather the WB and the USA.
    Because the apartheid regime, that Yu.Rhodesia were able to create quite viable (including relatively independent from the WB and the USA) regimes on the Black Continent.
    Now in fragmented, weak and corrupt countries in Africa, access to resources is much easier to control than with apartheid in South Africa and the white regime in South Rhodesia.

    White South Africa was needed by the United States while the USSR existed, to oppose the "communist threat" in Africa. As the USSR collapsed, South Africa was merged. It was impossible to defeat South Africa by military intervention, so they destroyed it with a proven method with tales of equality. Trans-corporations do not care who kills: white blacks, or black whites, the main resources of South Africa and neighboring countries are under control.
    By the way, the fate of South Africa is a subtle hint for Israel.

    Let’s see what happened not so long ago on the African continent? The Boers, (white settlers) with whom Mandela fought, are peasants (from the Dutch boeren - “peasant”). They, like ordinary labor migrants, came to Africa in the 16th century. On the empty and seeming barren lands, the Boers established agriculture and livestock. But most importantly, they built civilization among the savages of the Stone Age. If anyone does not know, it has long been customary for black Aboriginal people in Africa to hunt each other. For food, like ordinary game. And so, to the centers of civilization built by whites, blacks began to crawl. They were looking for food and work here. In South Africa, black gangs led by Mandela have killed more than 3000 white farmers in recent years alone. Having plundered their property, Black did not work. Farms are so empty until now, and the Negroes have returned to the Stone Age (like the American Detroit today).
    Back in 1961, Mandela led combat wing African National Congress. This organization has become "famous" thanks to its terrorist attacks on the civilian white population. Mandela received military training in the same Algerian camps where terrorists trained who captured and killed Israeli civilians at the Olympics in Munich in 1972.
    Already in 1963, Mandela was sentenced to life imprisonment. He was kept and fed for a long 26 years. The serial killer sat in very comfortable conditions and ... continued to lead the militants! His henchmen killed white Africans under his own motto: "and there is no trace of white." That is, in front of tolerant humanity for many decades a pure beast has been prancing! Wild, distraught, tasted of human blood ...
    After the Negro victory in South Africa, apartheid was replaced by black racism, cruelty and rejection of people with white skin in principle. White can be robbed, dragged into the gateway and release the gut. White people are not hired, their houses burned or captured, they are kept on reservations in inhuman conditions. You are a “snowball”, which means you have no place here. You are a man of the second grade. You are nobody.

    The ex-wife of former South African President Marike de Klerk is brutally murdered in her luxurious Cape Town apartment. According to police, the 64-year-old Marika was strangled and beaten before her death.
    The body of the former first lady was found on Tuesday by a hairdresser who was worried that the client had not arrived at the appointed time and went to visit her.
    Nothing testified to the approaching tragedy, and the reasons for her murder are unknown, says police spokesman Wikus Holtzhauzen. When the cops arrived, the killer’s knife was still stuck in Marika’s back. Pathologists say that by the time she was discovered, she could be dead for about a day.
