Need Before Greed


There Are 2 Vacant Investor-Owned Homes for Every Homeless Person in America

It is understandable, after reading such articles, that People support expropriation without compensation and this big 2018 hype called “radical economic transformation”

The Capitalists who made these “investments” can make a little money out of it; I doubt any reasonable man / woman would object against this

But they shouldn’t cut the neck of the Goose that is laying the Golden Eggs (us, the Workers)

When the Willing Buyer / Willing Seller at Cost +20% doesn’t work; then I can support a Government who would take it for the betterment of the Nation as a whole

There are many places like this too in South Africa, and there are many fellow South Africans (of course a smaller percentage against teh whole) who own these type of “investments” along with a fleet of cars

What distresses me even more than that is the lack of foresight by our Government and tertiary institutions such as Unisa

Whole blocks of flats standing empty at Unisa, while around the corner at University of Pretoria students have to sleep in toilets and under bridges?

Where is the Humanity in such opulence while others suffer?

Should we not prioritize sorting out this human condition of “Greed before Need” first before we start sorting out any thing else?

God or Mammon ; I’ve picked my side
