The world is changing fast and to keep up you need local knowledge with global context.
Some have a weird understanding of democracy. To them, once you’ve convinced fellow citizens to vote the right way, your responsibility to them ends. That sparks the game of “grab what you can without getting caught ” – and should you be exposed, never accept responsibility. Such hypocrites get away with this irrational behaviour because citizens who put them into power are also easily confused or frightened by the twisted logic and State levers available to their now famous leaders. George’s Orwell’s Animal Farm in practice. Zimbabwe’s deluded President-for-Life Robert Mugabe is among the world’s worst examples. His behaviour, however, creates fertile ground for heroes like pastor Evan Mawarire who has started a simple movement, called #ThisFlag, calling on fellow Zimbabweans to reclaim their country. Despite threats, Mawarire refuses to be intimidated. Intuitively appreciating the reality that all it takes for evil to flourish is for good men to stand aside and do nothing. – Alec Hogg
