This is where I think a lot of us live in a big 'ol bubble. I think this is actually a massively popular issue. Hell, it's always been a big part of the EFF's platform and they came out of nowhere and scored lots of seats in the house riding policies just like this. The *ANC* is threatened by how many votes this can cost them. That says a lot.

The little bit of experience I have had with EFF supporters suggested that they do not so much want land as stuff. They seem to me to be mostly city people (it would be interesting to see where most of the EFF support comes from). They all apparently think that when the EFF comes to power, they are all going to get a big house in the suburbs, plus a big car (some of them told me as much).

It does not occur to them that the geese that lay all these golden eggs will stop producing, but I think in the back of their mind they are fantasizing about a South Africa in which white folks function as slave labour, sustaining a high living standard for EFF supporters while living and being treated the way black house servants lived and were treated in the 1970s. Any farms they take over will simply be stripped of valuables and then left fallow.

I.e.they are actually the party of open racism and revenge. Indeed not really the kind of people anyone in his right mind wants in power. It remains to be seen how much support they really have.

I do expect our banks to have an egg or two to lay over this cause they stand to lose billions upon billions.
190 billion? I cannot find the source right now

I concur

Urban, not rural

The EFF is really a "black pride" movement. They emphasize black excellence and downplay white excellence, to the point of refusing to acknowledge it.

They have significant support among the youth and are becoming the 'new ANC' for the massive generation of people who have never worked and who will never have a job under the ANC.

That was my impression too. And it makes one wonder why they are so obsessed with farms none of them actually want. I sometimes get the impression it's just a revenge thing: they know how much farms traditionally mean to Afrikaners, and they're going to show them who's boss now. They are really pretty much like passionate teenagers who will shoot up a school and then commit suicide, just for the sake of being heard, and never mind that they go down with the ship.

Another perspective. An eminently sensible one at that.

One can hope this insidious rationality could spread.

Mr. Malema this w/e was on fire:
Quote from: Julius Malema
Farmers are taking out bonds on their farms, so that they can say it belongs to the bank when we arrive. They work with the banks to try and make the process of land expropriation without compensation fail. We warn the South African banks that any farm, on which a bond is registered after December 2017, will not be paid by our government. The homeloan bond system is anyway a criminal syndicate, aimed at stealing from the people. We have no respect for bonds. We have no respect for banks, because they are run by criminals. We warn banks we are on the verge of expropriating land without compensation.
