social cohesion

i listened to ex american president obama. i listened to my new president ramaphosa. it has been a busy, formative and informative week.

what single small and non reported thing does australia and america have in common?

extreme patriotism.

they plant their country flags in front of their homes, at their businesses and carry flags to public meetings.

even though america is divided in many ways, by race, by culture, by politics – they are all americans first and then they are whatever else they are.

in south africa we are something else first and then south africans.

in countries where the inhabitants are country first and then whatever else, that country has far more success.

all south africans need to change again. the rainbow nation has to be that, the rainbow nation first and then whatever else.
