Well it has officially commenced. The ruling elite has been successful in activating yet another component in its plan to completely dominate the society; having already achieved total control of all the existing conventional Political Parties and ensured that the one currently in office carried out its legislative agenda, particularly the Anti-Crime legislation.

They now have a Police Chief of their choice, an extreme right winger who will ensure that the ordinary people on the ground (cockroaches - his words), know their place and stay in line. It won’t be very long before the sight of armoured military type vehicles is commonplace in our streets, all under the guise of crime fighting which the population, already deliberately put under siege, will unwittingly welcome with open arms.

Initially on the surface there will appear to be major success in crime fighting, endearing the new chief to an unsuspecting public. However it will not stop there as the example of similar so-called third world countries has amplified. Nowhere in the Administration's Anti Gang Legislation, has any mention been made of the economic/financial gangs and gangsters who Plunder the Public Purse and engage in corrupt activities, to the detriment of our country with repeated impunity.

This was deliberate and meant to protect the ELITE. The National conversation on crime as advanced by the same elite has been about a few devious miscreants holding the country to ransom and once they are brought to heel, the country's crime problem will be solved.

Unfortunately the wider public has for lack of any other voices openly countering the rhetoric, innocently bought into it. The long established fact is that crime and criminality is a direct result of rampant and debilitating poverty and absence/suppression of opportunities to young people of the so-called under class.

Of course the elite know and understand this, they also comprehend that the eventual response from the same class that they despise, will be civil action of one form or another. This is the exact reason why they have been taking all the precautionary measures under a legal cover, to ensure that the status quo remains intact.

In all this, the self proclaimed people's organizations, particularly the trade unions, are in a daze like Alice in wonderland. It is only a matter of time before it becomes public knowledge, how many of these organizations are directly or indirectly on the payroll of the firmly established 'MASSA' class. I fear for us all.
