There can be today as many plans of action, as the number of people in the Afrikaner Boer nation, but if those plans can’t be implemented on a practical level, it won’t mean much.
Mike Tyson said: “Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the face.”
And that is how many of the Afrikaner Boer people feel after more than two decades of Democracy.
We feel as if we have been hit in the face. (If you do not feel like that yet, then you have not yet come to the full realization of the extent of the conflict raging on the farms and municipal areas.)
Nevertheless, we can not stop planning. We can’t just throw our hands up in the air, blame the past and say, ‘this is what it is.’
Therein lies then the necessity for the power of ideas.
One idea has the potential to change the world.
The power of an idea.
Jesus Christ of Nazareth created with ideas of love, the largest organization in the world, and it continues to grow to this day.
Gandhi, with an idea of passivity, brought the British empire to terms. Karl Marx, with an idea, planted the seed for communism, a movement we had to fight on the border and still to this day, have to withstand.
If the idea is communicated strong enough, then will those who are skilled in developing plans realize their duty. But if the idea is not there, or the idea not communicated well enough, then the wheel will not turn and can there in such an instance, be no direction.
Ideas only come to existence, when it is thought of often enough, talked of often enough and enough momentum created for people to go into action. Go and have a look at all the large historical ideas that had an impact on the world.
To have a voice
Yet in South Africa, the enemy has a very effective campaign against the Afrikaner Boer.
The enemy has succeeded in silencing our voice. On many levels, do we not have a voice anymore.
Our voice has been silenced in Parliament. In Police stations, and in municipalities, have our voice over time disappeared. And when we want to use our voice, then we are regarded as the worst of the worst, not only by the enemy but also by our own people.
Through it all, with many other factors included, have we started to believe our own, non-beneficial, discourses.
Our own discourses.
We created ideas for ourselves which are against the very solution each of us is looking for.
Ideas like the necessity of political correctness, to not mix church and religion, (even though your neighbor is brutally murdered on his farm,) to “not walk with the Bible under your arm,” (even though the Bible says that we must speak about the Word every single day.)
We believe the ideas that the government is to big for us, and that there is nothing to do apart from complaining. We buy into the idea, that the Afrikaner Boer nation cannot stand together, and the more we say that to each other, the more we buy into that faith, and the more it becomes a reality.
We buy into so many of these ideas, that when a single person speak of possibility, of faith, of overcoming, then our ears suddenly become shut, and do we ourselves silence such a person.
That is why a radical idea is so important at this time.
How do we get to such a radical idea?
So how do we do it?
We speak about it. We start gathering in small groups and we start speaking about the things that matter most. We start speaking about those uncomfortable things that we do not really want to discuss. We start by discussing topics such as how it happened that we are where we are today, and what we can do for the road ahead.
If God loves us so much, why does He allow an ungodly nation to rule over us, and are we killed on a daily basis by an enemy that only hates us? Does the fault not perhaps lie with us?
If the Word says that we must love our enemies, do we really do it? If the word says we must forgive, do we really do it? (I personally know of people who cannot forgive the British for the concentrations camps, even though the perpetrators are long dead.)
And then the practical things.
How does it happen that in certain households, the man in the house still does not own a firearm, and the rest of the household are not schooled in self-defense techniques?
What is it that prevents us from taking these things seriously? And what can we do about it? Why do we on a monthly basis, send money to Afrikaans non-profit organizations, but when there are talks of an Afrikaner military school, everybody frowns?
These are all ideas that need to be discussed with love, with care, and with power.
All ideas need to be respected because at this stage, have we but a few ideas that really stand against the enemy and the problems we face.
The organization, Defend Europe started with six people. Christianity with thirteen people.
At the end of the Second World War, Czechoslovakia found itself in a disorder of great proportions, but within a short time, created more than 4850 “national committees,” that served as municipalities and the government.
We will perhaps not be able to create national committees to drive the enemy out of the position of power, but with more than a thousand committees right across the country, will we already have more of a voice, will we already feel more part of an Afrikaner identity, and will we acquire ideas that could secure the future of the Afrikaner Boer.
There is no need for everyone to agree on everything. All we have to do is to show that we are serious. That it is no longer about “me,” but rather about “us,” and that we attend when these matters are discussed, and discussions are made.
