The ANC’s policy of redistributing instead of generating is the cause of South Africa’s problems and also the reason why many young white people are forced to leave the country.
The FF Plus welcomes the fact that President Cyril Ramaphosa has reached out his hand to white youths to offer his cooperation, but the party is also concerned about his other hand with which he is implementing policy that does not benefit all South Africans.
While addressing farmers and academics in Stellenbosch on Tuesday 9 April 2019, the President failed to mention how the ANC government plans to create equal opportunities for all while it keeps using race as a criterion for empowerment.
It is President Ramaphosa and the ANC’s divisive rhetoric about land and white people that is forcing the marginalised youth to consider their options abroad.
The FF Plus is convinced that all young people want to see South Africa growing for the benefit of all. However, discriminatory legislation and policy like Black Economic Empowerment (BEE), Affirmative Action (AA) and racial quotas are jeopardising a future with equal opportunities for all.
As long as these artificial practices continue at the expense of some, opportunities abroad will remain the only alternative for the young people of minority groups.
The President says that he wants to see balance in South Africa, but he does not realise that one cannot strike a balance by taking away and redistributing.
A true balance can only be achieved by offering something to those who do not have opportunities. The government’s main focus should be on creating an economic environment where everyone has access to opportunities. If there are not enough opportunities for everyone, then new opportunities must be created.
At present, the ANC is simply forcibly tipping the scales to achieve artificial equality.
The FF Plus fights back against the ANC’s policy of artificial equality and offers real solutions for South Africa’s problems. The party has a vision for a new dispensation. A dispensation where we generate rather than redistribute and discriminate.
