Long story short, South Africa is a collection of collections of tribes that every now and again like to beat each other to next Tuesday(and that's saying it censored). The only thing the people here truely understand here is force, that goes for all the races involved...fortunately the more civilized groups here only go as far a low violence hehehe it's fun dammit!
With that said piracy vendors would not do so well if the people themselves did not support them. RISA's idiot refusal to observe reality is their funeral.
Britain and America is extremely lucky that they have even small levels of competition. In South Africa there is ONE power company and ONE Fixed line telephone company....and government owns significant portions of stocks in both.
We are sucked dry to just get the necessities and they barely ever bother branching out logically, when they do of course it happens with great fanfare and empty promises.
True, its only when I got internet access that I started to realise how much my own country was lying to me. The night news allways is so optimistic...if only because mostly only happy topics are ever used.
