Prince Mashele’s “Disorder Now The SA Theme”: A Rejoinder

Published on 15th September 2016

Prince Mashele is reading the wrong authors and books. By quoting from Henry Kissinger’s World Order, I now understand and it would be interesting to find out who funds this country’s research groups. In his article with the headline, “Disorder now the SA theme” in Sowetan of September 12, Mashele seems to be thinking that people like Kissinger could be emulated.  I am worried that students are going to think that the likes of Kissinger are positive role models. Obviously, Mashele does not understand the intentions of the likes of Kissinger when they talk about a ‘world order’ or a ‘new world order’ to be specific, as well as the crimes they committed in the past.

This new world order is a dictatorial one-world government which if Mashele could know about he would not publicise Kissinger’s ideas and books the way he did in the Sowetan of 12 September 2016. Mashele does not understand that when the likes of Kissinger suggest that the world is disorderly,  they are subtly enjoining the US and other western powers through NATO and the UN to be the world’s policeman and take unilateral action as they have done in Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya. Their objective is also to get the world’s resources from the developing countries.

Let me quote from Henry Kissinger's National Security Memorandum 200 ("NSM 200") which was quietly declassified in 1990 in which he says among other things that: "The U.S. economy will require large and increasing amounts of minerals from abroad, especially from less-developed countries. That fact gives the U.S. enhanced interests in the political, economic and social stability of the supplying countries. Wherever a lessening of population can increase the prospects for such stability, population policy becomes relevant to resources, supplies and to the "economic interests of the United States."

Of course, we know that the "economic interests of the United States" means the interest of U.S. corporations and Multinationals. NSM 200 is available at the U.S. National Archives.

In case readers don’t understand what Kissinger is saying in that quote, let me clarify. When he says, “wherever a lessening of population can increase the prospects for such stability, population policy becomes relevant to resources, supplies and to the economic interests of the United States” he means that people in the less-developed countries must be killed for their resources.

There are people in countries where Kissinger is accused of war crimes and when he is going to be charged for war crimes when he was the US’s Secretary of State. He was one of the authors of the Global 2000 Report which called for the elimination of 2 billion people by the year 2000. I don’t understand why Mashele thinks there is anything worth taking away from Kissinger’s views.

Mashele said Nelson Mandela personified hope and that Thabo Mbeki kept that hope alive. I don’t understand how Nelson Mandela personified hope when he negotiated in secret a bad deal for Africans and was captured by the Oppenheimers and the West. Thabo Mbeki continued on Mandela’s footsteps and did not keep any hope alive. Jacob Zuma, just like his predecessors, continued the tradition of the ANC except that perhaps his blunders could not be covered up. Why does Mashele want to justify racial stereotypes using Zuma? White supremacists will harbour their racist views irrespective of what Zuma does or doesn’t do. Mashele’s reasoning is that there are no European, American and Asian kleptocrats and that only Africans are thieves. According to Mashele’s warped logic, only Africans can’t control their sexual drives.

Mashele is not aware what former PAC President Zeph Mothopeng said about the ANC’s and Mandela’s sell out deal. He has not read what authors such as John Pilger and Professor Sampie Terreblanche said about Mandela and the ANC years after Mothopeng had expressed them because he wants to believe his own strange ideas. Has Mashele paused to think why Jafta Masemola was assassinated? Or perhaps he doesn’t care. Which African revolutionary leader has ever gone to the British Spy agency MI6’s training section to go and thank them for protecting him except Mandela? Did Mandela’s and Mbeki’s Growth Employment and Redistribution (GEAR) macro-economic plan represent hope? GEAR, just like other ANC economic blueprints, was adopted to placate the West.

Finally, the PAC was swindled in broad daylight in the 1994 elections by the West with the collusion and connivance of the ANC and NP. After assuming power after those rigged elections, the ANC used state organs to undermine and destroy the PAC. What hope is there under such skullduggery and underhand tactics?
