Julius Malema: The Heir Apparent or The Afterbirth?
This page will feature serious theories – conspiratorial & otherwise on Julius Malema & offer insights into what the Malema phenomenon is likely to mean for South Africa’s medium to long term political & social stability & macroeconomic future. The purpose of this website, beyond being a source of amusement – is to open a meaningful & fruitless public & indeed global dialogue on the emergence of Malema & his brand of communist leading backwardness so as to avert the entirely unnecessary perils of having the lunatics running the economic asylum in a few short years to come.
I am of the belief that the answers are invariably always a shade of grey – though the long term ramifications of having a Malema in or anywhere in the vicinity of power in South Africa are likely to spell the dismantling of nearly two decades of social, economic & political progress & stability at the hands of an individual entirely inept for a position of stewardship of, well, anything. Consider this – Moody’s downgraded South Africa’s economic rating (will check on the exact metric shortly) within a week of Julius Malema’s moronic “Economic Freedom March” – his vengeful & misdirected dabbling in the macroeconomic affairs of South Africa is already having a negative impact on our economy & its standing globally. This from a guy who got 4% for Standard Grade Mathematics when he wrote Matric at the age of 21 (!). The section on his matric results will come to include an explanation of what those results infer – namely, that the figures for each subject need to be divided either by 400 (for Higher Grade subjects) or by 300 (for Standard Grade subjects) to arrive at a percentile score that is universally meaningful.
4% for STANDARD GRADE Mathematics – what is this person doing in a position of net influence on our macroeconomic policy? It is both absurd & highly worrying. Though averse to the premise of affirmative employment policies most of us can agree that a system which fosters the emergence of black South African talent – talent that can develop into a competence of global marketplace competitiveness – is warranted. Could we not though begin with individuals who possess the intellectual, educational & social raw materials to serve as a foundation for the fruit bearing investment of our collective resources?
Calling Julius Malema to task for hate speech gives him an inflated importance – I could not give a fuck what someone who got 4% for Standard Grade Mathematics sings about; what does concern me – deeply – is how this individual can both ascend to a position of de facto public & public policy influence & furthermore be jockeying for a realistic (let’s face it) run at the Presidency itself.
