Mob Protest Violence and Looting in South Africa

Mood hits, and will act revenge to take;

Charge with weapons, singing battle cry;

To loot café, alter route will make,

In between, forget first purpose high.

      I remember my first week at work, it was a provincial hospital connected to a medical “university” (at least, the professors were making a real effort). The “students” burned a bus right in front of our lab. Luckily the window was one-way glass, if they’d seen us in there I wonder what they would have done to us. Btw that was in 1993.

      Sadly, a culture has grown that if you don’t like something, do a disruptive march while singing and dancing to show how unhappy you are, and then start looting and destroying while you are at it. If trains are late, for example, ‘fix’ the situation by burning them. If you want housing, burn a few so that the shortage increases. Attack ‘foreigners’ for having the enterprise to set up businesses you are too dim to create for yourselves. Make sure you elect leaders who are either stupid or crooks.

      It is not a pleasant atmosphere.
