Afrikaners is nie onafhanklik genoeg in hulle denkwyse nie - hulle (ons) denkwyse is nie 'otonomies' (genoeg) nie - die Katalane sin is = die Katelane word deu Spanje soos koeie gemelk vir hulle harde werk en hulle belasting - a kwart van Spanje se uitvoere kom uit Katalonie uit (maar hulle sien nooit enige terugvoer vir hulle ekonomies bydraes nie)... en hule is gatvol daarvoor! Is dit nie wat ook met Afrikakners gebeur nie? Is ons nog nie gatvol genoeg nie? Wel, ons het nog steeds geen plan/ne nie - soos jy tereg opmerk. Wat is dit dan met ons? Die Kataloniers word egter nie uitgemoor deur die Spanjaarde nie - en die Afrikaners? Ons laat ons self maar net uitmoor. Waar is ons? Ons is nog steeds vasgevang in die denkwyse van: die staat moet alles verskaf - die Staat - selfs die Swart Staat moet alles verskad - ingeslote ons veiligheid en ons vryheid. Ons is prisoniers van ons eie denkwese, vasgevang in die verlede wat verby is - in die glorie van wat ons was - wat ons opgebou het - in die Ou Suid Afrika - in ons geskiedenis - self die van ons wat jonger is. Die ander probleem is weereens - ons is nie otonomies nie: byvoorbeeld: die oorgrote meerderheid van Afrikaners wat emigreer gaan na Engelse lande toe... mens kan nog vir Ierland verstaan, want die Iere het dieselfde probleme met die Engelse gehad, maar hoeveel boere and Afrikananers it vandag in NZ, Aus en die VSA? Kanada het darem Franse. Solank ons kan begin besef wat dit werklik sal vat om selfbeskiking te he het ons 'n kans, maar ons gaan moet baie diep na ons self moet begin kyk. Op die oomblik is die glad nie duidelin of ons murg ons pype het nie. Ons kan baie leer by die Kataloniers, selfs al is hulle links. (Suid Amerikaanse Afrikaner)

Leon ek skat ek kan seker weer `n mondvol sê. Maar stel dit so : hoeveel miljoeners het al aangkom ? Verstaan jy my hekel in die gebrek aan vooruitgang hier by PRAAG ? Woorde skaars koud toe het doktor al reeds weer `n vloermoer gegooi i.v.m. die Ingelse hier oppie ander blad. Is daar hoegenaamd `n plan vir hierdie "grondlegging" ?

Suidpunt, dankie vir jou sinvolle, ingeligte opmerkings. Ek is self gekant teen die dooddruk van (volwaardige) tale wat min sprekers het, bv Baskies en Bretons in Frankryk. Omdat Engels eintlik deur die owerheid as Suid-Afrika se enigste nasionale taal bevorder word, kan Afrikaans tot niet gaan. Te dikwels word daar op die Wim de Villiers-manier geredeneer dat dit die maklikste is om net een taal te he. Twee redes waarom ek die plaaslike klem op Afrikaansvarieteite teenstaan, is (1) die voortbestaan van Afrikaans word bedreig en daarom is daar krag deur eenheid in Standaardafrikaans te soek en (2) die ATR, ATKV en ATM bevorder by voorkeur Kaaps en nie Standaardafrikaans nie omdat Kaaps met bruines en Standaardafrikaans met Afrikaners geassosieer word. Ek sal vrede met die gehamer op Afrikaansvarieteite he as dit Kaaps uitsluit; dus as Kaaps eerder as 'n mengeltaal (wat dit ongetwyfeld in erge mate is) as 'n Afrikaansvarieteit getakseer word. As Afrikaans sou oorleef bloot in die mate wat dit in Kaaps behoue bly, is dit myns insiens onmoontlik om respek daarvoor te he. Afrikaans sal eerbaar oorleef slegs as dit so duidelik moontlik van Engels onderskei word terwyl Kaaps die teenoorgestelde doen. Laasgenoemde is die ideaal van Hein Willemse: "Ons moet onthou die bruisende toekoms van Afrikaans ... reeds in ons veeltalige stedelike strate soos die van Kaapstad en sy townships vorm aanneem" (Kaaps in fokus, p 75).

John, dankie vir jou gereelde kommentaar. Ek hou daarvan dat jy skrywes in 'n breër perspektief plaas. Waarmee ek besig is, is metapolitiek, dus grondlegging vir aksie. Daarom kan dit lyk asof ek nie prakties (genoeg) ingestel is nie. Eintlik probeer ek om blankes, veral Afrikaners, en Afrikaans se onverkwiklike ná-1994-situasie te verstaan, die gevolge uit te wys en gemobiliseerde verset en regstelling aan te moedig. Enersyds is daar bv Afrikaansinstansies wat iets probeer doen, maar hulle oriëntasie is verkeerd omdat hulle met politieke byderwetsheid en ANC-kruipsug deurweek is. Ek probeer die besef tuisbring dat hulle in werklikheid besig is om die ondergang van eerbare Afrikaans te bewerstellig. Ek probeer om hulle op 'n ander en meer effektiewe spoor te plaas, wat positiewe, praktiese gevolge kan hê. Andersyds is daar die onbetrokkenheid van die meeste Afrikaners deurdat hulle geen poging aanwend om die situasie waarin ons en ons taal beland het, te verlig nie. Met metapolitieke skrywes poog ek om hulle bewus van ons onbenydenswaardige posisie te maak en hulle tot daadwerklike optrede aan te spoor. Op hierdie manier kan rollende massa-optrede 'n werklikheid word. Dink net hoe vinnig en positief dinge vir Afrikaners kan verander as talle Afrikanermiljoenêrs en ander welgestelde Afrikaners op groot skaal geld vir die bevordering van spesifiek Afrikanerbelange (bv Praag) bewillig. Die Afrikaanse Taalmuseum en -monument en die Woordeboek van die Afrikaanse Taal kan dan uit die ban van die ANC-regering verlos word. Afrikaners moet hiertoe gemotiveer word. As die hart reg klop, sal die hande konstruktief begin doen. 'n Wolkekrabber word gebou eers nadat 'n gat in die grond gemaak is.

Ironies is dit juis wanneer verloopde Afrikaners aankom oorsee dat hulle die meeste waardering het vir die taal. Want dis lekker om anders te wees of om iets ekstra te besit in terme van kultuur in `n land waar almal slegs Engels kan praat. Jy sluit aan my `n ander kultuur maar jy het ook jou eie spesiale een. Die wie nie `n ander taal kan praat nie beny jou, is selfs jaloers. Miskien is daar `n laansie te breek vir Afrikaans oorsee. Nee wag, ek's nou sommer laf. Die toekoms van Afrikaans lê verseker opgesluit in politiek en defnitief in godsdiens. As die gelowiges nou moet wyk uit die wallems en opkyk en vêr kyk is als verby.

Leon, interessant dat jy na Baskies verwys as een van die tale wat vasgeklou het. Dieselfde kan gesê word in verband met tale soos Iers (gaelies), Katalaans en `n paar ander. Maar daar is natuurlik 2 onderskeidings in vergelyking met Afrikaans. Anders as Afrikaans is hierdie tale so te sê : - veel ouer as Afrikaans, - demografies en geografies gekonsentreerd en mens kan byvoeg, na dese is hulle so te sê selfregerend. As `n vierde verskil wil ek byvoeg - hulle het elkeen `n erkende "politieke verteenwoordiger", hetsy in die vorm van `n suiwer politiese entiteit of militêre vleuel. En dit is sonder uitsondering altyd links van aard. Dit is nie die geval met Afrikaans nie. So te sê in die teenoorgestelde rigting het die Nasionaliste gesorg dat daar `n republiek tot stand kom, maar daarbenewens was Suid Afrika toe ook ingelyf by die Commonwealth broeders en as sulks moes hulle trou sweer aan al haar majestyd se vyande - insluitende die wie ek hier bo beny. Glo dit of nie Leon, ek waardeer jou boek resensies, maar nes Dan Roodt se sporadiese uitbarstings teenoor Ingelse, mis ek die positiewe .. of spesifiek - die praktiese. Ons weet nou dat al die geregtigheid op aarde Afrikaans en Afrikaners toekom, omdat julle dit voortdurend publiseer, maar ons weet ook dat, in werklikheid, dit nie die geval is nie. En hoe erger die miskenning word hoe erger word die preek. Die "justification" is duidelik. Maar waar's die plan vorentoe ? As die instansies dan harder moet probeer, hoe so ? Wat moet hulle doen ? Moet ons trouens weereens na die verenigings en rade kyk soos die papgeslaande boere altyd na hul surrogaat regering kyk vir hulp, of is daar iets meer prakties van aard ? Op hierdie stadium is die mense wie die meeste doen vir die voortbestaan van die taal juis nog steeds die gewraakte ATKV's etc. en Afrikaanse musiek "kunstenaars" soos Forkoff Polisie Kar, Dyantwood en Stefanus die ontwrigter.

flockhart as die 'anderskleuriges' nie afrikaans 'eerste' kan of wil plaas nie, dan moet n ander groep gestig word wat daadwerklik iets vir die taal wil doen, dit is belangrik, dit is een van die laaste goed wat ons nog 'besit', dit kan nie toegelaat word om te stagneer nie maar moet groei

Ek stem saam dat ons Afrikaner instansies en organisasies oor die algemeen baie beter moet begin presteer as bloot bestaande uit Grootmeneer of Women's Lib voorsitters, lyk-altyd-baie-belangrik-komiteelede en gedienstige ledegeldbetaalers wat naas die ontvangs van 'n e-Nuusbrief of jaarlikse vergadering of enekele uitstappie vir bejaardes, niks daadwerklik bydra tot samehorige en volhoubare Volksbehoud en hul konstitusionele onderneming nie.

How true, how true. Japan also still murders dolphins every Fall, which is a sore subject for me. Even some of the NGOs people have supported for so long have become either, too big for their own britches or corruption has inflitrated them. Panthera supports the 'culling' of wildlife... argh! Other NGOs vote in favor of killing our wildlife and then promise to keep their mouths shut on the subject... arrrrr! It comes down to people and their moral compass. Sadly, the majority just don't give a shit about anything but theirself... pathetic, small-minded subhumans.

Seriously - did anyone really think that they would truly stop with the ivory trade? Really? Age old story - move the sin out of sight, or in this case next door, and pretend that it is a perfect world...........The only thing perfect in the world are the fauna and flora of Gods perfect creation, not the humans who we know are born sinners, even though they were created in God's image. China still has human rights abuses, Japan is still killing whales, yet the world still supports their industries, why - cause they are cheap. Really who is the ethical ones on this planet - simple answer no one. We all pay lip service to each other and the bottom line is that if there is money involved anything goes - as long as it looks like someone gives a damn.

IF Heratige Malta has taken over this fort, why is it in this condition and WHY has this fort never been opened to the public. This is not the only fort in this condition and there are others in far worse states and still many others that have been taken over by members of the public , in the past, and now state "NO ENTRY, PRIVATE PROPERTY" on the gates, Yet legaly speaking, they are all public lands, and as such , should be taken back, cleaned up and for a small fee, opened up to the public, as these are as much Malta's heratige as are the fortifications around Valletta.

At least this fort can still be restored unlike Fort Chambrai in Ghajnsielem which is a hundred years older and now in private hands. How can our governments sell historic sites to private developers?. More over the fort is in deplorable state, the promised hotel that will employ hundreds of locals is still non existent and culturally significant areas of the fort have now been forever lost under the tread marks of bulldozers. And we Ghajnselmizi can only watch from a distant as our beloved fort is raped from within, consumed by greed and "luxary" apartments.

The main problem of this fort is not lack of maintenance nor the extensive vandalism which continuously reverses whatever restorations are done. The real problem is the fast eroding soft tufa cliff underneath due to incessant sea action.

The Nationalist and Labour governments which took possession of forts and other properties and lands as these were relinquished by the British did little to protect and preserve most of them - not even providing watchmen. A few were saved however: Fort Rocco was leased to Malta Film Facilities which also leased Rinella Battery. Forts Mosta and Madliena were taken over by the Malta Defence Force, Sliema Point Battery was turned into a restaurant, Fort St Lucien was leased to the University and Lascaris Battery became the Ministry of Education. Steps were taken to turn St Angelo into a hotel - a project which fortunately came to nothing though much damage was done to the lower parts of this iconic fortress. The Lintorn Barracks in Floriana became public service offices as did other buildings along the Valletta and Floriana fortifications. The Vernon Club was handed to the Central bank. Upper St Elmo housed the Police Academy while a radio station operated from (the now once more abandoned) Tas-Silc Battery, the Labour Party turned one of the bastions of Senglea into its headquarters. But sadly much was lost and degraded by neglect, vandalism, ignorance and improper usage. The criterion adopted was that unless a site could provide a useful service, nothing would be done to protect it. The development of tourism as a major industry and (it must be said) the vast improvements in the general level of education of the people as a whole, brought with it a reappraisal and enhanced appreciation of Malta's (and Gozo's) heritage by our (national and local) elected representatives, the public service and the general public. But it was our entry to the EU - and the funding of heritage projects which followed - that led to the spectacular (even breath taking) restoration projects of recent years and these have been supplemented by active heritage groups who undertake significant works of restoration on a scale unheard of in the past. While it is true that much has been irretrievably lost to the built and un-built environments, it is clear that there will be more and more major restoration and conservation projects. By any standards Malta has done very well in this field. It is my hope and prayer that (at the very least) Forts Ricasoli, Leonardo and Bingemma will be saved and that careful planning will lead to the rehabilitation of the entire Cottonera lines and the British retrenchment lines.

You cant knock it down. British masonry is too hard and was built to last. The iron gun worth about 5000 euors in scrap is too heavy for maltese scrap thieves to lift. Built to last , to keep out french and italian marauders. But like so many things the poor old fort can be undermined with the soft flakey Maltese bedrock. It dissolves in the sea like a sugar cube. Washed away swept away.

The fort's use as a pigsty was symptomatic of how Malta's historical heritage, particularly that dating back to the British period, was treated by the government of the time. Restoration is a very expensive business but future generations, apart from the present one, have a right to inherit what has been handed down to us. Perhaps a part of the income from the infamous sale of passports could be set aside for this purpose and somewhat redeem it.
