The biggest reason South Africa is critically ill, and what we should do about it.
“No” has become a standard response from people who are protecting their jobs, basically by changing nothing. “No” should actually be “come and talk.” “No” has led to Load Shedding, Job Losses, Unemployment, Lack of Security, Waste and Health Risks e.g. in Milnerton Lagoon, etc.
The fastest way for us to fix this problem is to organise our communities into cooperatives, and then for the cooperative to negotiate on the community's behalf.
Of-course this requires trust and cooperation, a huge problem in a country full of fraud and corruption.
Love your neighbour needs to include Trust your neighbour. I trust those I love.
South African companies fall apart because trust disintegrates.
We need integration.
We need to cooperate and to become interdependent.
This way our costs go down and our security goes up.
