Are we law-abiding citizens? Do we understand the contents of our Constitution. Do we allow others to enjoy the same freedom and space as we require, or at times demand? We’ve lost the sense of togetherness. We seldom push towards the same goal. We criticise and victimise those who stand trial for a crime before they even go to court. At times the punishment the guilty receive does not make sense to us at all.
Let’s face it, society is corrupt. It starts very innocently the day we take a pen and glue for our kids to use at school from the office we work in. We gladly paid a bribe so we could avoid the traffic fine. We paid a little extra to avoid standing in that long queue at Home Affairs. Don’t even ask about the driving licence
Could this be the reason why we are not really up in arms over the corruption in our political arena?
People going to one inquiry after another yet nobody seems to end up behind bars. We now sit back and expect our president to save the nation from unemployment, etc, while we have not done our bit to rid our immediate environment from theft and corruption.
