Yes we have crime, yes we have corruption, yes we have racism, yes we have inflation but beyond that we have OPPORTUNITY.
The opportunity to become the greatest nation on the planet. By definition I'm not talking about China's plan for greatness, which is a 1000 year plan for global financial domination.
I'm talking about, no violence, racial integration, harmony between us all and a love for each other born out of a love for our nation. Pride in what we have and who we are.

Reduce your personal global footprint by not smashing so much junk into your face and your carbon emissions will be a lot more friendly to your neighbour, our beautiful South Africa and the planet.
