What use is democracy if we cannot remove failing politicians and municipal employees?
Are they here to serve us? Are they elected representatives and public servants… or are we exhaustively working for them, our slavery ensured by skin colours and political parties that have no intention of walking the talk? Are we chained to a justice system indifferent to justice… sometimes a criminal perpetrator of injustice?
As a man wanting a better life, as a human being capable of helping my neighbours, I raise my double barrel of middle fingers to the CORRUPT.
My two flags of flesh, grown from the Bill of Rights, wave with righteous anger towards a better future where the rotten are jailed and us citizens are free.
– Mike Hampton
YOUR TWO FLAGS OF FLESH
My message is birthed by the failure of Mmusi Maimane to address massive corruption in the Democratic Alliance he leads. That corruption has infested my home town of Knysna (under the leadership of Mayor Eleanore Spies) and spread to Cape Town.
However, this political virus isn’t limited to one party, one town or even one country. It’s an Earth thing. Its carrier is human beings, leaders fed by anti-human beings called the Apathetic Public.
So this message is ESPECIALLY FOR YOU, whether it involves the ANC in Durban, the Republicans in Washington or the AKP in Turkey. Corruption, anywhere, must be strongly given our middle fingers. When citizens treat the crimes of their leaders as acceptable, something to only have opinions about, they become the biggest crime of all, the crime against all.
Get involved in your life. Your life, your friends, your family and your neighbours are in your hands. All that counts is action which begins by raising your middle fingers from your heart, minds and hands. Objection repeated will grow into something bigger. Most of all, it will change you from a slave into an individual.
Raise your two flags of flesh!
