Parallel structures

“The State is a condition, a certain relationship between human beings, a mode of human behavior; we destroy it by contracting other relationships, by behaving differently.”

Gustav Landauer

Ignoring is bliss


In the course of the last two years many countries have imposed their will upon their citizens. Using the  vast funds at their disposal and their relative efficiency,  it has been hard  for their citizens to escape the quarantines and mandatory vaccines and forced lockdowns. The state has been hard to ignore.


But this is not the case in South Africa.  The government does not have vast funds,  They are not even remotely efficient,  and most of the time have almost no clue.   This opens up a workable form of resistance to the endlessly encroaching state. In South Africa you don't have to defeat the government,  you don't have to overpower them,  you can simply ignore them in relative safety.  Most of the population does. 


Here is a list of government interventions that you can simply ignore, or avoid:


  1. E tolls

  2. TV licences

  3. Tax - most citizens

  4. Speed fines

  5. Electricity payments - Soweto

  6. Rates - most townships

  7. Bitcoin enquiries

  8. Vaccines

  9. Street and town renaming

  10. POPI act

  11. Internet publishing restrictions

  12. Mask mandates 

  13. Calling the police


Instead of endlessly worrying “what is to  be done”, simply do nothing.
