MANIFESTO OF THE FF PLUS FOR THE ELECTION OF 2014
A. Introduction and Background: The South Africa of 2014
1. It is time:
The FF Plus believes it is time for a better new South Africa. The ‘New South Africa’ of 1994 has failed and has become an old South Africa. The recipe for nation building in the past 20 years since 1994 has not worked. We dream of a truly New South Africa which is to the advantage of all its people.
2. South Africa of 2014:
The South Africa which came into being in 1994, has become stale, due to affirmative action, job-losses as a result of transformation, marginalisation of minorities, poor service delivery, poor management, incompetence, cadre deployment, nepotism, political appointments, lust for power, abuse of power, corruption, fraud, self-enrichment, cover-ups, incompetence, crime, farm murders, populism and ideological obsessiveness.
Every one in South Africa, apart from the ANC’s inner circle who has been advantaged by it, wants a country without these features. The result of this and other experiences, with which Afrikaners and other minorities face, is that a call is being made to stand together for a better dispensation – a dispensation which protects language and minority rights, maintains Christian values and guarantees freedom and justice.
In this manifesto the FF Plus explains its vision of how this has to be achieved, to broaden and deepen the democracy upon which this freedom is built.
3. Freedom with Justice:
Freedom can be described as the ability and right to make decisions and execute them.
As with the majority of South Africans, freedom is also central to the political thought of the FF Plus. While the FF Plus recognises the individual, a community and the state, and where applicable wants to protect it, there is a vacuum in South Africa with regards to the claim of freedom to communities.
4. What is the truth about South Africa?
The truth is that we have a very diverse country with different languages, cultures, religions and historical views. But also with realities that over 360 years we have grown accustomed to being economically intertwined and being dependent on each other. People believe that in this large country there is and has to be a place for everyone.
