Evil flourishes when good men are silent. Business Day chose the path of least resistance by chiding the Democratic Alliance for raising the alarm, not government for failing 34 out of 37 audits, Managing government (October 9).
Behind that failure is a decade of replacing skilled whites with loyal blacks, allocating benefits by race not merit, eroding management discipline, running nine Mickey Mouse provinces rather than four, maintaining a culture of entitlement and a sense of impunity, producing bad policies, gambling on expensive disasters, seizing public assets and hiding failing performance behind censorship.
This nation cannot afford imploding departments, a venal national executive committee and a patronage cabinet — or crony capitalism and a servile press.
Evil is flourishing in government. Best Business Day speak up.
