Is our national psyche OK?
Just asking - after observing how:-
a) we get angrily correctivist if a local columnist, his editor and managers allow a tasteless opinion piece into a daily paper's distribution (Miyeni/Sowetan)
b) we get patronisingly chided for our excessive sensitivity when objecting to a once great foreign actor and his film producers/editors/distributors allowing a tasteless (sexist) remark into a film's distribution (Cleese/Spud)
We get asked by media houses pushing a "LeadSA" story to wear green for the rugby guys. I suggest in an investment lecture that the "every working day" competition of our industrial, service and other workers against the best on market from California to China is perhaps as, if not more important than, de Villiers' selections and pronouncements. I then get upbraided in the lecture by a charming local gent called Mpho for even thinking that, never mind saying it could be so. 22 guys on a business trip, practising their profession, in an area with a 50% win/loss ratio - and we cringe if they stumble, and bellow if they get a win?
Do we know, or care, what leading SA into the future might require?
