How sad and how low can South Africa forget Nelson Mandela (Madiba)’s 27 years of prisoned by a White Man and how low can South Africa forget a Whiteman’s ideology to destroyed Africa by design to hold up Dr. Riek Machar, the leader of South Sudanese opposition, (SPLM-IO) in South Africa?
By Gatluke Chuol Reat
To South African government, if the report from the media that UN, US, has recommend South Africa’s government to hold up Dr. Riek Machar in their Country, then on what ground? What crime did U.S and UN convicted Dr. Riek Machar that convinced South Africa’s government to hold Dr. Riek Machar? And where in International Law, where a country like yours can hold up a political leader without known crimes, conviction or trail? Or is this is a future conflict by design between South Sudan and South Africa by the same Whiteman? If that is so, then, one would wonder about how sad and how low can South Africa’s government forget the suffering of black people in South Africa and around the world by design?
Argument by design from United States of America, UK, and UN?
I want to remind South Africa with one thing, on Sunday March 6, 1927, a Whiteman to whom I respect name Bertrand Russell gives a lecture as to “Why I Am Not a Christian”? and one of the striking part about this lecture for me was his explanation on by designed argument. I will now give you the entire paragraph of the argument of by design, since you entirely forgot the suffering of Nelson Mandela and believed only a word by design by a White man.
Here he said, “When you come to look into this argument from design, it is a most astonishing thing that people can believe that this world, with all the things that are in it, with all its defects, should be the best that omnipotence and omniscience has been able to produce in millions of years. I really cannot believe it. Do you think that, if you were granted omnipotence and omniscience and millions of years in which to perfect your world, you could produce nothing better than the Ku-Klux-Klan or the Fascists? Moreover, if you accept the ordinary laws of science, you have to suppose that human life and life in general on this planet will die out in due course: it is a stage in the decay of the solar system; at a certain stage of decay you get the sort of conditions of temperature and so forth which are suitable to protoplasm, and there is life for a short time in the life of the whole solar system. You see in the moon the sort of thing to which the earth is tending—something dead, cold, and lifeless.” (Bertrand Russell 1927)
To you South Africa, I want to remind you that you were once a slave of the same white man who design this unlawful detention of Dr. Riek Machar, the leader of South Sudanese opposition best known SPLM-IO, South Africa, you were once slave in your own country, you were once prisons of war on your own soil, you were black then and you are still black today. White man is the same as the white man who enslave you for 100 years then and still the same White man today.
I must remind you that it is the same white man who colonies the entire Africa continent that is recommended you to carrying out this unjust detention of Dr. Riek Machar. This is the same White man who is destroying Africa by design policies, open your eyes.
To you South Sudanese who are suffering, I want to leave you with the same conclusion of Bertrand Russell’s argument from design and what we can do as human being. Although, his argument was about God, I believe that there is a correlation. Below is what he outlined about what we must do.
WHAT WE MUST DO
We want to stand upon our own feet and look fair and square at the world—its good facts, its bad facts, its beauties, and its ugliness; see the world as it is, and be not afraid of it. Conquer the world by intelligence, and not merely by being slavishly subdued by the terror that comes from it. The whole conception of God is a conception derived from the ancient Oriental despotisms. It is a conception quite unworthy of free men. When you hear people in church debasing themselves and saying that they are miserable sinners, and all the rest of it, it seems contemptible and not worthy of self-respecting human beings. We ought to stand up and look the world frankly in the face. We ought to make the best we can of the world, and if it is not so good as we wish, after all it will still be better than what these others have made of it in all these ages. A good world needs knowledge, kindliness, and courage; it does not need a regretful hankering after the past, or a fettering of the free intelligence by the words uttered long ago by ignorant men. It needs a fearless outlook and a free intelligence. It needs hope for the future, not looking back all the time towards a past that is dead, which we trust will be far surpassed by the future that our intelligence can create.
In the end, I want to remind you, the South Africa government that although, you are enjoying whatever you are getting out of detention of Dr. Riek Machar, South Sudanese will continue suffering. If you pay attention to news lately, as of now, over 300,000 South Sudanese are living as IDP, 2.5 millions are refuges in neighboring countries, over 40% of entire country is going hunger and famine has been declared. Enjoy our suffering South Africa but remember, you were once slave in your country by design and by the same White man who recommenced the detention of Dr. Riek Machar by you South African government.
