MANASSEH’S FOLDER: Why Victimised NPP does not d

In the first place, I'll say that on the surface it's a good article, aside a couple of facts/truths that should have been inserted, whilst a couple of insults should have been found needless. I really loved reading his articles until gradually I saw a certain political inclination whenever political topical issues were being dealt with by him. Of course, he has his rights, as much as I also have my rights to be a discerning reader. I thought he was totally apolitical and didn't need to bother about whose ass was gored. I almost sent an email one time to him, after reading a fantastic piece from him. Honestly, I realised that political topics were very difficult for him in deaing with abject neutrality. In view of what is happening, who said the NPP deserved sympathy in the first place? It may not seem obvious but why travel the road of equalisation? I submit that brilliant advocacy had been made for nation building and the way forward as a nation. I can't determine what has to be objectively dealt with by him, however, I thought he was going into these SA3 issues objectively,bring education as a pillar of the fourth realm, deal with our weak laws in respect of that,etc. Alas, being smart and witty, he chose to go this way. Give it to him. Looking back after all these years, I sometimes wonder what these dominant parties have for us as a nation. My son, you have done excellently in exposing corruption in government,etc but as a journalist, remember also the bug of politics. It's sting does not heal easily. Many moons may not help. Consistency of neutrality, although desired, may come at a cost to you. Yet, it is to be preferred. You may have fought and continue to fight for this nation, but irrelevance, broken dreams,etc may be your eventual portion if you don't resist the sting. Surely, you can become a rallying point, if you do. Let me leave you with this inspiring quote by Marianne Williamson, from her book, A Return To Love: Reflections on the Principles of A Course in Miracles, "Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others". A word to the wise....
