South Africa has been heading towards a collapse for some time now. The process began in the 90s and ran through the early 2000s when there was a mass exodus of white people due to escalating violence, racism, and limited employment opportunities. Johannesburg, the country’s capital city, is a prime example of South Africa’s decline. This once vibrant city, built on a foundation of wealth, has transformed into a bleak wasteland reminiscent of the novel “Lord of the Flies,” overrun by chaos, violence, and despair.

How did Johannesburg, once a shining oasis, deteriorate into a crumbling hellscape within a relatively short span of time? The answer is simple: Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion” (DEI). These globalist buzzwords have deprived Johannesburg of its richness, leadership, and vitality.
This is Johannesburg in 1981:
This is Johannesburg 5 months ago:
And it’s not the passage of time that destroyed this city. It’s liberalism. Two years ago, Revolver wrote a critically acclaimed piece on this very topic called, “South Africa — The First Country Built on “Critical Race Theory” — Officially Implodes”
The Revolver piece brilliantly reveals how South Africa was used as a makeshift testing ground for global initiatives, employing Critical Race Theory and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion as the foundation of a nation. And, as you might expect, it didn’t go well.
The meltdown in South Africa isn’t a natural disaster or a random fluke. It’s a choice. South Africa was the first modern nation to be refounded on the anti-white principles of Critical Race Theory, and now it is reaping the whirlwind of that choice.
South Africa did everything that is being done in America right now. As a hyperdiverse multiethnic, multilingual society, South Africa has followed almost every prescription embraced by the globalist ruling class.
This is about more than riots. This wave of violence will eventually peter out. But there is no reason to be optimistic when that happens. There will be no sense of having survived a calamity, and having a chance to rebuild. When this wave of burning and looting and killing are over, there is nothing to look forward to but the next wave.
The specter of doom hangs over South Africa. The optimism that peaked when the country hosted the 2010 World Cup is now gone. Despite being warned for years about failing water infrastructure, local governments ignored the problem and now the country has routine, severe water crises. South Africa began experiencing rolling blackouts in 2007, and has battled them ever since. Even the government says the blackouts will likely continue for at least five more years. Hint: Bet your money that they last even longer.

In the meantime, Johannesburg has fallen thanks to CRT and DEI. It’s nearly impossible live normally, let alone run a business; power outages can last in upwards of ten hours a day in the city. Looking at Johannesburg today, it’s almost impossible to recognize how glorious she once looked.
The continent’s richest city was built on gold, but it’s now defined by chaos, crime and corruption more than ever. It encapsulates the wider collapse of basic services across South Africa. From a broken railway network disrupting trade to archaic sanitation that triggered a recent cholera outbreak near the capital, Pretoria, parts of the country increasingly look like a failing state.
The once thriving, cosmopolitan city is now basically run by warlords and thieves.
At the heart of the dysfunction in Johannesburg is a governance crisis. Since the country’s governing national party, the African National Congress, lost control of the city in 2016, unstable coalitions have resulted in six mayors in four years. The current leader is a member of a party that holds 1% of the municipality’s 270 seats.
While many global progressives may applaud themselves for their role in combating “racism” and promoting equity and inclusion in South Africa, they overlook this stark reality: the people of South Africa are currently grappling with tremendous levels of fear, hopelessness, and a sense of enslavement like never before.
Globalists didn’t “fix” anything. They made it worse.
