2017: the year the tide turned against corruption and lawless banks

Posted 12 December 2017

2017 will go down as the year the tide turned against corruption. President Zuma will soon be gone and his successor, assuming it is Cyril Ramaphosa, will start to rebuild the ruling party around traditional ANC Charter values of human rights and respect for voters. He will have to if the ANC has any hopes of maintaining a majority in the 2019 elections. 2017 was also a year in which the courts started to rein in lawless behaviour by the banks, making it harder to repossess homes for a pittance.

The climate science debate illusion

Posted 15 May 2017

The phrase "climate denier" has come to mean someone who refutes the facts of climate change brought about by humans. But as Scott Adams point out in this article, the climate science believers and deniers are actually talking about two different things.

Posted 11 May 2017

In this article, Temba Nolutshungu argues that we should heed the lessons of Nelson Mandela, Mahatma Gandhi and China's Deng Xiaoping, all of whom espoused free markets and individual liberty.

Individual liberty has been corroded by self-serving politicians

Posted 02 March 2017

Individual liberty has been corroded by self-serving politicians, to the point where our rulers are emulating the apartheid social engineers who came before them. Medical students are required to enter the service of the state, businesses cannot chose whom they employ, and the unemployed are denied the right to enter into free association with employers at a mutually-agreed wage. This is what has become of the noble struggle for freedom that birthed this nation, writes Temba Nolutshungu of the Free Market Foundation.
