Welcome Note

01 October 2013

Here we are, crossing the Rubicon, south of this river dwells some of our greatest fears. For some, the fear that we are inadequate, and for most, the fear of finding out that we have been more than adequate all along. The wind of change (to loosely quote some of Former British Prime Minister, Harold Macmillan's words) is blowing through this continent, whether we like it or not, this growth of national consciousness is a fact. The wind in question has been blowing for a while now and many of us have been easing our sails instead of sailing with the wind. Only the brave have sailed on to discover treasures in store for them. As much as I would love to say that I know a lot about sailing, I do not.

"I was gratified to be able to answer promptly, and I did. I said I didn't know" - Mark Twain
"The only true wisdom is in knowing that you know nothing." - Socrates

There is a lot that I wish I knew about a lot of topics, and yes we are living in the information age, there is no excuse for not knowing, but there is a wealth of knowledge that we all acquire through practice and of course the constraints of time hinders us from knowing as much as we would like to. Just as our ancestors passed on wisdom through sharing what they knew to those that did not know the onus rests upon each one of us to share what we know (at least that is how I imagine the ideal world).

Great tasks and ideals have been bestowed upon us. These are the kinds of ideals that we ought to be willing to die for. As much as it might require great depths of oppression to achieve great heights in character, it is in digging deep to such depths that we might find that the oppression was self inflicted along. Let us rise up to balance this latency this greatness. The words that we write and utter will continue to resound and shall not return void.

In the coming few weeks, several articles will be featured. These articles will touch on topics that we ought to take cognisance of. Topics will include inter alia, legislations (both controversial and overlooked) tax social development health and lifestyle socio-economic issues innovation prosperities and challenges in business, etc. I hope you enjoy reading this publication as much as we have enjoyed putting it together.
