It's unfair to call SA a failed country. I won't deny, it does have it's problems with crime, poverty and racial tension (especially against whites), but it's very well off compared to alot of countries out there, and has some really beautiful areas. Maybe the government just doesn't do as well as they should.

I don't know really, I've never been to SA. I've just read up on alot of the problems that occur there. Here's a map of so-called "failed states" around the world.



So SA is in orange which may seem quite severe, but so are countries like Mexico, India, China, Russia (all higher on the list than SA) and most of the countries shown on this map so it's pretty average, and better off than some Red countries in upper Africa and the Middle East. Western countries in Europe (labeled Yellow) seem to pretty well off, and Green places like Canada, Ireland and Australia are the most sustainable apparently.

On my second trip to Italy a couple of the girls in my group were from South Africa and they encouraged all of us to come visit South Africa some time.

I see my birth country (Zimbabwe, the former Rhodesia, north of South Africa) is in red: that is not good.  Thumbdown

Yeah, I heard Zimbabwe has not been good in recent times. It's probably due to a dictating government and civil unrest.

And I know this may be unrelated Trevor, but how are things down there in SA? I often hear stories about violence and racial tension, but I can't judge if it's truly like that since I've never been?

The world is mad. And each madhouse looks out it's windows and screams 'J'Accuse!" at all the others. Is it a wonder I expect mankind, not to save it's self?

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
