“Why does the government demand I need a licence for my bicycle trailer, which needs to be stable; but I don't need any stability test or skills to prove I can get a licence to breed or vote????” -- Question to Mr. Hector Eliott, Head of Ministry, Transport and Public Works, Provincial Government Western Cape
Today I filed an Application with the George Magistrates Court (GRC Case 3052/11) to ask the Magistrate to issue an Order that gives me a Temporary Permit to operate my Bicycle Trailer on Public Roads in Eden District Municipality, pending the resolution of my Petition to the Dept. of Transport for a Permanent Bicycle Trailer Permit. This was in response to a letter from the WC Dept. of Transport that informed me that the Vehicle Technical Committee (VTC) had decided -- without doing any tests or investigations whatsoever; purely by thumb-sucking decision-making -- that my bicycle trailer was unstable; and hence I should be a denied a licence for it; after the IPP had approved my petition, pending the decision of the VTC.
So, on Tuesday, July 05, 2011 7:35 PM; I filed a Request to Mr. Arendse for further evidence and information from the VTC: Request Vehicle Technical Committee (VTC) ‘Unstability’ Evidentiary Info; for Appeal to be filed with Mr. Philip Magagane of NDoT: RE: Petition to use Haulin Colin Bike Trailers on a Public Road. (Annex D). I also informed him that I “shall also be filing an application with the local Magistrates court for an order, granting me a temporary permit to use my bicycle trailer, until this matter is finally resolved with the Dept of Transport.”
Please could the VTC provide me with the results of their investigation, and the detailed report as to how and why they allege bicycles and trailers are unstable; and how exactly they define ‘unstable’; particularly the tests done by the VTC on the safety aspects, including stability tests which are the foundation for their allegations that a combination of bicycle and trailer are unstable.
Are they alleging that bicycle’s and trailers are only unstable in South Africa? Or which other countries in the world -- where bicycles and trailers of all sizes and makes are legal and used by ecologically conscious persons and poor people every day of the week for the past almost 200 odd years since the invention of the bicycle in 1830 -- does the VTC allege that bicycles and trailers are also unstable in?
Please could you also provide me with the legislation that states that it is a citizens responsibility to provide evidence of stability for a vehicle; which is considered stable anywhere and everywhere else in the world; and not the Committee who disputes such stability’s responsibility to provide their evidence for their allegations.
Request Vehicle Technical Committee Commitment to Stability Credibility Info:
I’d like to know whether any of the particular VTC committee members who disputed the trailers stability; have a serious and sincere commitment to a stable society.
For example: It is well recognized – even by the United Nations – that to finish high school, get a job and avoid pregnancy until you are married and financially secure, creates a culture and society with strong human capital, strong families build strong stable societies. In South Africa, the ANC are bribing poor people with welfare to breed poverty stricken children! The ANC refuse to bribe (create financial incentives) poor Africans to avoid breeding until they are married and financially secure. The ANC refuse to bribe poor Africans to avoid breeding until they have gotten a University or College education. The ANC insist on bribing poor people to breed more poverty stricken children deliberately and intentionally creating an unstable society of poverty stricken citizens, on the ANC’s vote-farm slavery plantations.
It is well recognized – even by the United Nations – that seventy to ninety percent of the worlds conflict zones – i.e. unstable societies - occur in societies and cultures that have a large youth bulge of unemployed young men. The ANC are bribing poor people to breed poverty stricken children by the thousands, creating a massive unemployed youth bulge in South Africa destablizing our communities and nation.
What if anything, has any of the VTC experts done in their private or professional life to support stable communities and a stable South Africa by advocating that the SA Government desist from bribing poor people to breed poverty stricken children; to destabilize SA?
What if anything have the VTC experts done to demand that the government legislate a ‘licence to breed’; that requires any couple who wish to procreate a child to get a licence to prove that they are emotionally, financially and psychologically stable enough to provide a stable environment for the child which they wish to procreate?
Do the VTC experts think that it is more important to have stable bicycle trailers than stable children and a stable society? Why does the SA government demand citizens get a licence to prove they have a stable bicycle trailer; but it does not demand citizens get a licence to prove they are capable of providing a stable home for their children?
On Tuesday, July 05, 2011 8:25 PM, Mr. Hector Eliott, Head of Ministry, Transport and Public Works, Provincial Government Western Cape, responded:
My opinion, take it or leave it:
If you are serious about getting your bicycle trailer certified, you should remove the political content and sociological commentary and resubmit. You should firstly write and formally withdraw the letter, apologising for writing emotionally.
You should stick to your argument about the testing and international practices. You are 100% correct, in my view, and backing it up with photographs is excellent.
You are not the first person to forget that government officials, while they do make mistakes and many can be unconscionably arrogant, are human beings, and behave like human beings when insulted or blamed for things beyond their control. You are suggesting that a technical committee change the way they do business because you believe the ruling party has a social engineering agenda.
Also bear in mind that government employees are very often on the receiving end of highly emotional, often abusive commentary from the public, directly and in the media. Much is deserved, but most is not. I have never been on the receiving end of viciousness and spite like I have seen in this job - it is absolutely unheard of in the private sector.
On Wednesday, July 06, 2011 1:15 AM, I responded:
Thanks for your feedback: I appreciate you for taking the time to provide me with your opinion.
Re: the alleged 'political content and sociological commentary'.
I was not writing 'emotionally'; but legally. I don't see how asking government officials for the reasons for their decision making, and big picture evidence regarding their credibility (in this case to the issue of required stability licensing tests to create a stable society) can be insulting. Are they not professional adults? A few days ago, a member of the British Political Party: BNP wrote to me: “Just found out your a red. and you were married to a n*gg*r. bye you filthy race traitor.”
I am a professional adult. I was not in the least insulted; because in my experience professional adults highly value constructive criticism; and the opportunity that constructive criticism provides for problem solving. There is absolutely nothing you can say to insult me. My response to the gentleman, thanking him for his constructive criticism, and inviting him to continue the conversation is at: http://bit.ly/kRTts4
Where did I blame anyone for anything beyond their control? Are VTC officials not citizens of SA? As citizens and public officials; if they are sincerely and seriously concerned about a stable society; are they not able to write letters to their leaders, to demonstrate their serious and sincere concerned commitment to solving the problems that prevent a stable society; and where possible licensing may be required, to implement such licensing of breeding or voting; to enable stable persons to breed and vote?
So, I am interested in their big picture commitment to a stable society; above and beyond being paid by taxpayers to be serious about licencing for stable vehicles.
Where did I suggest that a technical committee change the way they do business? I would not even call what they did: 'doing business'; for they didn't do their job whatsoever! Since when is sucking your thumb decision-making that a vehicle is unstable (which is considered stable on the rest of the planet); without doing any of the tests they are required to do: 'doing business'? This is very strange 'doing business' decision-making for alleged professionals.
If they were committed to 'doing business'; would they not have made a professional investigation; did all the stability tests on the bicycle trailer???
To 'believe' something implies that you believe it as an absolute truth; i.e. 100% percent. So people who believe a matter to be an absolute truth, generally make statements of their beliefs as indisputable facts. They don't ask questions, because only people who are still investigating an issue, who don't believe something as absolute fact, but who have a working hypothesis, which they are making an enquiry upon, ask questions.
Are you suggesting that the ruling party are so incompetent in their decision making, that it is not their conscious intentional and deliberate policy decision-making to bribe poor people to breed poverty stricken children; when they could (but deliberately and intentionally refuse to) bribe poor people to avoid breeding until married, or educated?
India bribes poor people to get sterilized; but SA bribes poor people to breed more poor people! Why?????
India: Rajasthan in 'cars for sterilisation' drive (BBC) http://bbc.in/iPtvNt
Why can a cleaning lady with almost no education ask: 'Lara, why does the ANC bribe poor people to breed? Why don't they bribe us with welfare to stop breeding? Why don't they bribe us with welfare to get education? Why do they bribe us to breed? These children are being bribed to fall pregnant, and to drop out of school and just to breed more and more poor children. Why?'
What should I tell her, Hector? Why do you think the ANC are bribing poor people to breed? Might the fact that in 1994, white SA's were 10% of the population and are now 4% have anything to do with the ANC's bribery breeding war?
If the thought crosses a poor woman living in a plakkerskamps mind; do you allege it does not cross the minds of educated VTC officials who are allegedly seriously concerned about licencing on behalf of stable vehicles? What about educated politicians, who make deliberate, intentional decisions to bribe poor people to breed poverty stricken children, and to destabilize South Africa; as opposed to bribing them to get an education and stabilize South Africa? Why, do you think they think they are bribing poor people to breed?
Hector: I am a member of the Radical Honesty culture. In my culture we have no murderers, no rapists, no unwanted children, no poverty. If the ANC or the DA or any political party in SA are serious about stabilising South Africa; don't you think they would want to do an investigation into what does a culture do, that it has no murderers, no rapists, no unwanted children, no poverty? If you want to fix the problems in your culture, wouldn't you go to a culture that does not have the problems you have in your culture? So, is it a fair working hypothesis to enquire into why the ANC and SA government officials are deliberately and intentionally bribing poor people to breed more poverty stricken people, which they know will destabilize communities and South Africa?
Why does the government demand I need a licence for my bicycle trailer, which needs to be stable; but I don't need any stability test or skills to prove I can get a licence to breed or vote????
Credibility: It refers to the truthfulness, reliability of a testimony in a trial. Credibility is decided by the reputation of the witness and also supporting evidences and it is basically the mind that decides whether the party or the witness giving testimony is honest, sincere and reliable.
Source credibility is the believability of a communicator, as perceived by the recipient of the message.
There are different elements that may comprise a person's credibility but, according to source credibility theory, the two elements most commonly identified are perceived expertise, and trustworthiness of the source. Source credibility theory research also indicates that the ability to internalize the message is influenced by the potential impact the message has upon the receiver.
Expertise or competence is simply the quality of having a specific range of skill, knowledge, or ability in a specified area. According to communications and speech specialists, Steven A. Beebe, professor of communications studies, and Susan J. Beebe, trustworthiness is characterized as the ability for people to believe a person to be honest.
I am simply requesting the VTC Committee provide information about their Professional or Private Commitment, or not; to a Stable Society. It does not appear they are very serious about their jobs as VTC inspectors. They don't do any investigation whatsoever, and they don't provide any reasons for their refusal to do any investigation.
My Credibility: Re: My Efforts -- UNPAID -- on behalf of a Stable Society.
Following excerpt is found in the attached two documents:
 Radical Honesty SA Heads of Argument in Afriforum v. Malema (para 182)
 Radical Honesty SA Complaint to the International Criminal Court, in terms of Article 15 of Rome Statute (para 43).
“[iii] ‘Kaffir Legislation’ = Inalienable Right to Breed’ Poverty, Misery and War legislation; pretending it advocates for ‘peace’ and ‘human rights’.
Kaffir Law/Legislation provides citizens with the Inalienable ‘Right to Breed’, but demands that Citizens need a Licence to Own a Gun, a Licence to Drive a Car, a Licence to Practice Law, a television licence, a credit licence, a licence to earn a living, a university exemption licence, a licence to fish, a licence to hunt, a liquor licence, a business licence, a marriage licence, etc, etc. Kaffir Legislation covers up that an ‘Inalienable Right to Breed/laissez-faire birth control policy + No Social Welfare policies or practices provides for an equilibrium carrying capacity; whereas Inalienable Right to Breed/laissez-faire birth control within a welfare state, results in Runaway Population Growth, and ultimately greater misery, poverty and war.”
Why do you think the ANC is bribing poor people to breed more misery, poverty and war????

India: Rajasthan in 'cars for sterilisation' drive
1 July 2011 Last updated at 07:27 GMT
Health officials in the Indian state of Rajasthan are launching a new campaign in an effort to reduce the high population growth in the area.
They are encouraging men and women to volunteer for sterilisation, and in return are offering a car and other prizes for those who come forward.
Among the rewards on offer is the Indian-made Tata Nano - the world's cheapest car.
Many in the government are worried about the size of India's population.
It is expected to overtake that of China by 2030.
Sitaram Sharma, the head doctor of Jhunjunu in western India, is hopeful that the chance to win a car might be just enough to tempt at least 20,000 men and women to undergo sterilisation.
He is also offering motorcycles, televisions and food blenders.
The offer is open to all Indians and not just residents of his drought-prone region.
Other regions have also offered incentives for couples volunteering for sterilisation.
A nationwide campaign was abandoned in the 1970s, however, after complaints that thousands of men and women were forced into having the operation.

Licensed to breed
Published: 8/12/2009 19:57:18
by Michael Coetzee, The Citizen’s Chief Sub Editor
James Bond has one that allows him to kill, drivers of cars are supposed to always have one on them, and gun owners are constantly complaining about how difficult it is to get or renew one.
While it may indeed often be an inconvenience to obtain them, licences play a very useful role in regulating the ownership and use of dangerous and potentially lethal tools such as vehicles and firearms.
Few would deny that it’s a good idea people should obtain licences before being allowed to pilot a few tons of metal down the highway at 120km/h, or that it should be ascertained whether someone has a criminal record or is mentally unstable before they are allowed to own and carry a lethal weapon.
It seems there is pretty much a consensus that when it comes to things that have the possibility to injure, kill or in any other way negatively impact the lives of people or society in general, regulation is desirable.
Considering this, there is one sort of licence that is conspicuous by its absence: a licence to breed.
Or procreate, to use the more acceptable term, for people seem to get quite upset when the rather mundane event of a human giving birth to a child is referred to in any way other than with the respect and awe usually reserved for describing some religious experience.
It is, after all, a miracle, isn’t it? A miracle that happens 150 times each minute.
But to be fair, the baby born this very second somewhere in the world is indeed unique – just like everyone else.
It is only common sense that this is a field of human activity that should be tightly regulated, yet the unemployed, uneducated idiot who is incapable of looking after a child considers it an inalienable right to bequeath on the world more of his genetic legacy.
And make no mistake, stupid people love to breed – people with low IQs have more children than those with high IQs.
A lack of intelligence is unfortunately no impediment to impregnating someone or to being impregnated, and human offspring seem to have the uncanny ability to survive even the most incompetent of parents.
What this means is that the world population is slowly getting dumber and dumber as those of lower intelligence continue to multiply like rabbits, outbreeding their intelligent and educated counterparts.
The future does not look bright.
Or rich, for that matter, since the poor also have more children, never mind the fact that they are incapable of feeding them.
The previous examples focused on the effect that unrestricted breeding has on society as a whole, but what about the effect this has on the children themselves, forced to grow up in an abusive environment?
On a more personal level, the unrestricted right to procreate also means that a violent, emotionally unstable person who we would not trust with a car or a gun is allowed to have children and be their primary caregiver.
Even the SPCA checks out prospective dog owners and their property before allowing them to adopt an animal. But when it comes to people, it seems we have no such concerns over their physical or emotional well-being.
A system that requires prospective parents to demonstrate the necessary material means and parenting knowledge to look after children before being allowed to procreate would be the ideal solution to the problem.
Unfortunately, uncontrolled breeding has left humanity far too stupid to implement something of the sort.

Michael C. Ruppert: DieOff & the End of Economic & Population Growth:
Anthony Kaufman, Wall Street Journal
November 04, 2009
The Wall Street Journal sat down with Michael Ruppert to discuss oil, Wall Street and the “imminent collapse of human industrialized civilization.”:“It is not possible to continue infinite consumption and infinite population growth on a finite planet. It is therefore crucial that human beings begin to openly and honestly discuss the issue of population and commit to reducing it through means that are as humane as possible lest through our resistance to doing so, nature takes the matter into its hands and reduces population in ways that are horrific and unimaginable. Unless a fundamental change is made-and quickly-the only available option is collapse and implosion; the bursting of the human population bubble; or, as people in the Peak Oil movement call it-the Dieoff.”

Population Bomb ‘ticks louder than climate’
by Rosslyn Beeby, Science & Environment Reporter
Canberra Times; 22 Jul, 2008 01:00 AM
Global population growth is looming as a bigger threat to the world's food production and water supplies than climate change, a leading scientist says.
Speaking at a CSIRO public lecture in Canberra yesterday, UNESCO's chief of sustainable water resources development, Professor Shahbaz Khan, said overpopulation's impacts were potentially more economically, socially and environmentally destructive than those of climate change.
Australia must also think about the future social and environmental implications of its ''population footprint''.
He said, ''It's not something that should happen by an act of God. It has to be an informed decision about geographic spread and location, about benefits for indigenous communities, for river systems and wetlands. It's a big exercise and needs to be done very carefully.''

Population explosion threatens to trap Africa in cycle of poverty
Xan Rice in Kampala
The Guardian, Friday 25 August 2006
There are 27.7 million people in Uganda. But by 2025 the population will almost double to 56 million, close to that of Britain, which has a similar land mass. In 44 years its population will have grown by nearly as much as China's.
"You look at these numbers and think 'that's impossible'," said Carl Haub, senior demographer at the US-based Population Reference Bureau, whose latest global projections show Uganda as the fastest growing country in the world. Midway through the 21st century Uganda will be the world's 12th most populous country with 130 million people - more than Russia or Japan.

Thou Shalt Not Breed: Anglicans
by Josh Gordon, The Age, Australia,
May 9, 2010
THE Anglican Church wants Australians to have fewer children and has urged the federal government to scrap the baby bonus and cut immigration.
Wading into the population debate, the General Synod of the Anglican Church has warned that current rates of population growth are unsustainable and potentially out of step with church doctrine - including the eighth commandment, ''Thou shall not steal''.
In a significant intervention, the Anglican Public Affairs Commission has warned concerned Christians that remaining silent ''is little different from supporting further overpopulation and ecological degradation''.
''Out of care for the whole of creation, particularly the poorest of humanity and the life forms who cannot speak for themselves … it is not responsible to stand by and remain silent,'' a discussion paper by the commission warns.
''Unless we take account of the needs of future life on Earth, there is a case that we break the eighth commandment - 'Thou shall not steal'.''

High birthrate threatens to trap Africa in Cycle of Poverty
Xan Rice, Guardian Weekly,
Friday 1 September 2006
"What's happening is alarming and depressing," said Jotham Musinguzi, director of the population secretariat in Uganda's ministry of finance, pointing out the clear correlation between high fertility levels and poverty.
"Are we really going to be able to give these extra people jobs, homes, healthcare and education?"
Development may not be the only casualty of the population boom. With increased competition for scarce resources such as land, conflict is likely to increase.
Consequences will be felt far beyond Africa: pressure to migrate abroad - already great - can only grow, experts say.
It is not yet a lost cause. Experience has shown that with strong political will population growth can be tackled in Africa. Southern Africa's population is expected to remain stable thanks to sustained efforts to cut fertility rates, although Aids-related deaths are also a factor. In 1978 Uganda's neighbour Kenya had the world's highest fertility rate - more than eight children per mother. The government made family planning a national priority and by the mid-1990s the figure had dropped to below five.

Muslim Europe: The Demographic Time-Bomb Transforming Our Continent
By Adrian Michaels, TelegraphUK
Published: 11:11AM BST 08 Aug 2009
Britain and the rest of the European Union are ignoring a demographic time bomb: a recent rush into the EU by migrants, including millions of Muslims, will change the continent beyond recognition over the next two decades, and almost no policy-makers are talking about it.
The numbers are startling. Only 3.2 per cent of Spain's population was foreignborn in 1998. In 2007 it was 13.4 per cent. Europe's Muslim population has more than doubled in the past 30 years and will have doubled again by 2015. In Brussels, the top seven baby boys' names recently were Mohamed, Adam, Rayan, Ayoub, Mehdi, Amine and Hamza.
Europe's low white birth rate, coupled with faster multiplying migrants, will change fundamentally what we take to mean by European culture and society.
The altered population mix has far-reaching implications for education, housing, welfare, labour, the arts and everything in between. It could have a critical impact on foreign policy: a study was submitted to the US Air Force on how America's relationship with Europe might evolve. Yet EU officials admit that these issues are not receiving the attention they deserve.

New York Times: Pregnant (Again) and Poor
by Nicholas D. Kristof,
New York Times; 4 April 2009
For all the American and international efforts to fight global poverty, one thing is clear: Those efforts won’t get far as long as women like Nahomie Nercure continue to have 10 children.
Global family-planning efforts have stalled over the last couple of decades, and Nahomie is emblematic both of the lost momentum and of the poverty that results. She is an intelligent 30-year-old woman who wanted only two children, yet now she is
eight months pregnant with her 10th.
As we walked through Cité Soleil, the Haitian slum where she lives, her elementary-school-age children ran stark naked around her. The $6-a-month rental shack that they live in — four sleep on the bed, six on the floor beside it — has no food of any kind in it.
The family has difficulty paying the fees to keep the children in school.

Population explosion: Africa is sitting on a time bomb
Publication date: Wednesday, 31st March, 2010
By Peter Mulira, New Vision
WITH the population of Africa predicted to double within the next 30 years, the economic future of its people is set to be very bleak unless something is done to combat the uncontrolled growth rate.
It is on the basis of these trends that experts predict that unless checked the population will double from the present level of around 850 million to 1.7 billion people within the next 30 years. The continent will simply not be able to cope with the multiplicity of problems a population in billions will bring about. As has been said by one population expert, “High rates of population growth create unemployment faster than jobs, increase the mouths to be fed faster than the production of rice paddies, squatters faster than people housed in modern facilities, excrement faster than sewers can be built.
A population growing faster than the output of modern goods and services not only frustrates development goals; it undermines the credibility of promises made in the name of development and the political will to pay the price of progress.”
There is a direct correlation between high population growth and low level economic development in Africa. For example with its population growing at twice the rate for the world the continent still contains 32 of the 47 countries classified by the World Bank as least developed in the world. Secondly, while the continent’s population grew at the rate of 2.9% between 1960 and 1980, GNP per capita grew at a rate of 1.9% per annum between 1965 and 1983. Thirdly, it is now well established that countries with the highest fertility rates also happen to be among the poorest.
With a total fertility rate of 6.6, the highest in Africa, Chad’s GNP per capita of around $230 is the lowest in the world while Algeria with a total rate of 3.8 had a GNP per capita of $1550.

Human race 'will be extinct within 100 years', claims leading scientist
By Niall Firth, Daily MailUK
Last updated at 1:59 AM on 19th June 2010
As the scientist who helped eradicate smallpox he certainly know a thing or two about extinction.
And now Professor Frank Fenner, emeritus professor of microbiology at the Australian National University, has predicted that the human race will be extinct within the next 100 years.
He has claimed that the human race will be unable to survive a population explosion and 'unbridled consumption.’
Fenner told The Australian newspaper that 'homo sapiens will become extinct, perhaps within 100 years.'
'A lot of other animals will, too,' he added.
'It's an irreversible situation. I think it's too late. I try not to express that because people are trying to do something, but they keep putting it off.'
Since humans entered an unofficial scientific period known as the Anthropocene - the time since industrialisation - we have had an effect on the planet that rivals any ice age or comet impact, he said.
