Dear friend of the FMF

In this week’s feature article, Russell Lamberti explains that “Marxism” and “socialism” “carry the baggage of great misery, so the ploy is to deepen socialism within South Africa without naming it.” He calls the result “technocratic socialism”. The ousting or nullification of the totalitarian technocrats, he says, “would be a tremendous leap forward in the pursuit of life, liberty and happiness on the southern tip of Africa.“ 

FEATURE article  

South Africa languishing under technocratic socialism RUSSELL LAMBERTI

Much ink has been spilt attempting to explain South Africa’s economic malaise, but there seems to me still far too little appreciation of the chronic ideological illness infecting every corner of state policy: Marxism.

Over the past 10-15 years, the South African economic system has ceased to be an environment of widespread economic betterment and now is better characterised as a fiefdom for legal and illegal plunder by state technocrats and opportunistic cronies at the expense of vigorous, organic, inclusive economic dynamism.
