Development Issues in the age of enlightenment

I follow the eagle to where two rivers meet and sit at the edge of the land with full moon above me tidings of hope and salvation fills my heart to the brim and see clearly the rainbow nation with problems multitudinous as the autumn leaves wase Mzansi rendering the country unlovable yet the vision remains pristine fresh but solutions are over the bridge clarion call to bring up a fighting spirit and take a fresh look to nation building devoid of a litany of policy utterance and use the people latent power as life testimonial that says:
Our nation as a place where love of land beckons to be in perfect harmony with growth and development of individual cultural heritage long buried in the hinterland.


Our nation that can utilize wealth and achievement to reduce in great measure hunger and malnutrition and other physical impediment that curtails a quest for meaning in life with a full stomach and roof over ones head.
Our nation that can combat institutional Racism that runs havoc in the play fields and work places at the level of people and organisations.
Our nation with unparallel scientific and technical resource and knowledge to be made an oasis to cultivate a spirit of co existence
Our nation material wealth and capitalism transcended the dignity and the need to share a locust head with other human beings to galvanize and tap peoples energy for social growth and development
Our nation crime and reward in prison where quality of life is better than living in a fear driven country riddled with rape and merciless killing must be curtailed by armed forces.
When this becomes a spirit of the nation unheralded people who gave their life will rise up and rejoice to honour a silent revolution whose little light will shine over the hills and valleys and usher in the age of Enlightenment.
