Australia offers a quick exit for white South Africans fleeing their shit hole of a country

goodbye to all that

goodbye to all that

The black government of South Africa has voted to confiscate the land of whites remaining in the country, without compensation, so Australia is working to speed up its visa program for white South African farmers.

If Zimbabwe's own program of confiscation of white farmers' land proves the model, and it will, the large, industrial farms will go to the corrupt politicians, who will then break them up into tiny plots and dole them out to loyal supporters. What   is now a working agricultural system that produces enough of a surplus to actually export grain, beef and the like will quickly revert to subsistence farming; men, women and children grubbing the soil with wooden hoes and, if they're fortunate enough to have one, an ox to pull a plow.

We had friends in South Africa, a family whose ancestors had arrived almost 200 years before; liberal, anti-apartheid, they sold off their property and left their country for Australia in the late 70s, explaining, "there's no future for whites in Africa". They, and tens of thousands of their peers, were prescient — those who attempted to hang on are only now discovering their folly.

“Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty.

This is known as "bad luck.”
