“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.”
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:
Tax - most citizens
Electricity payments - Soweto
Rates - most townships
Street and town renaming
Internet publishing restrictions
Calling the police
Instead of endlessly worrying “what is to be done”, simply do nothing.
