How was that particular decision, 'fortunate', Allan? It was essentially the last nail in the coffin of the only first world society to have ever existed in Africa. I fail to see anything 'fortunate' about this.
In John Milton's Paradise Lost
, Lucifer exclaims that "Tis better to rule in hell than to serve in heaven." That seems to be the mindset of most black South Africans, and, unfortunately, a large number of brainwashed South African whites. The fact that blacks, as a group, are incapable of creating a first world society, and that the only path South Africa will take under black rule (and has been taking) is a downward spiral is deemed irrelvant, so long as everyone, regardless of qualifications is allowed to participate in the mob circus called 'democracy'. I disagree - everyone, including blacks, was far better off under the old regime - most South Africans are either already subconsciously cognizant of this fact, or beginning to become aware of it. It will take the rest of the world quite a bit of time to catch up, though.
