What has lead us to the point where blatant LAND THEFT is even possible under the Constitution.
The answer here is complex and all of South Africa has been conned into this unfortunate situation and mind set.
The classical MARXIST/LENINIST procedure is to gain small concessions and then twist them out of all proportions and mould them to suit their agenda.
The "WILLING SELLER/WILLING BUYER" concept was a classic example of this process.
It was the "BOILED FROG" all over again!!!
The ANC and the rest of the LAND THIEVES started off with the concept of "Willing Seller/Willing Buyer" to get the ball rolling.
What "ball" was that you ask.
Once everyone had become used to the seemingly fair concept of "Willing Seller/Willing Buyer" things started to change.
LEGITIMATE LAND OWNERS were then subtly threatened with all sorts of "hearings" to give so called "historical claims" the benefit.
And of course this whole process was overseen by the LAND GRABBERS and steared in such a way as to legitimise the FORCED SALE OF LAND by the LAWFUL OWNERS.
Yes, there were MANY legitimate claims where people who WERE the legitimat land owners were disenfranchised historically BUT THERE WERE MANY BOGUS CASES.
MANY LEGITIMATE LAND OWNERS WERE SCAMMED OUT OF WHAT WAS RIGHTFULLY THEIRS!!!
In many cases the LEGITIMATE LAND OWNERS were faced with a choice - and not much of a choice at that!
Either they became a "WILLING SELLER" and gave up their land, often at an unrealistically low price - OR THEY FACED A LONG, EXPENSIVE AND DRAWN OUT PROCESS.
And at the end of that process it would be decreed that they were to give up their land anyway.
The temperature of the water was HOT and we, the "frogs", had not noticed the increase.
The strange and simple fact that by far the majority of these "sales" did NOT TRANSFER OWNERSHIP OF THE LAND TO THE PEOPLE WHO CLAIMED IT !!!
In most cases the ANC run State was the owner of of the land at the end of the largely illigitimate process !!!
AND THAT FALLS IN LINE WITH THE COMMUNIST CONCEPT THAT THE STATE MUST BE THE ONLY LAND OWNER.
Permission was given to the claimants to OCCUPY the land - NOTHING MORE.
Now in MANY CASES, the new occupants wanted to make a go of it, wanted to develop the land, build something to be proud of and that benefited the community and indeed the whole of South Africa by producing much needed food but they were not able to.
When they needed capital to develop the land, purchase seed and fertilizer, tractors and ploughs, pay workers and all the other expenses that go along with farming THEY COULD NOT RAISE THE NECESSARY FINANCES.
There is not a bank in the world that will give you a loan to develop property if the property DOES NOT BELONG TO YOU.
And of course the ANC would not make these loans available - indeed THEY COULD NOT !!!
THE ANC CADRES HAD ALREADY STOLEN THE MONEY - THERE WAS VERY LITTLE LEFT !!!
So now South Africa is sitting with a situation that hundreds of thousands, millions of hectares of viable productive land IS NOT PRODUCING ANYTHING !!!
Because the people who WANT to produce cannot do so because they have no "working capital".
And of course the "POLITICALLY CONNECTED" have been given substantial farms with ALL the infrastructure that is needed AND FUNDS TO DO SO.
Those farms are deserted, totally run down, in many cases they are abandoned and the "POLITICALLY CONNECTED" have taken the money and moved on leaving destruction and devastation as their legacy of corruption.
The "frog" has been "hard boiled" and we did not even realize it at the time.
