Expensive Beliefs

Faith: Belief without evidence in what is told by one who speaks without knowledge, of things without parallel. – Ambrose Peirce

The ANC Youth League has a bad habit of making claims about companies, that leave the said companies going “Wha?”

Remember when the ANCYL were claiming “Mr Rupert” owned Media24? And how Mr Rupert pointed out that he didn’t?

Anyway the latest example is – Anglo American. It turns out that they have zero intention of mining the land held by the Bantu Bonke settlement, they sold their prospecting rights to an empowerment company a while back.

This may seem like a small issue, but the ANCYL at the moment is currently protesting for mine nationalization, and this is the standard of research they bring into their case – yet they are taken seriously.

And note Malema wasn’t lying, he just didn’t care. The ANCYL has never cared about facts. Facts are for people who actually want to solve problems, not exploit them.

Interesting that you’ve tagged the post in the comedy section Bruce.. lol. It would be even more of a comedy if the senior ANCYL members took a test in basic economics!

Think you’d enjoy last week’s Juju cartoon on Wonkie about the ANCYL march for economic freedom. Check out:
