Newsletter 181 Irreparable Harm

In South Africa for no logical reason but to try and hold on to control, the government has once again extended the covid-19 "state of emergency". Their next step will be to fudge things by shifting regulations to the control of the Department of Health, entrenching tests, tracing, masks, distancing, mandated vaccinations, restrictions on voicing contra-opinions - supported by big business coercion.
I have been working hard at reducing email overwhelm by unsubscribing, avoiding, social media time-wasting, and leaving unnecessary groups. In the process it has been good to appreciate and retain valid and credible sources of information on matters of importance in business and society today. Worth special mentions are:
Prof Theuns Pelser of the University of KwaZulu-Natal Graduate School of Business and Leadership whose researched and well-developed views allow us to make informed decisions on the key matters we face in a fast de-humanising world
Terrence Gargiulo of Making Stories, a wonderful person with deep resources for crafting and using stories in business in a way that is not coercive, and thus highly effective

If anyone is looking to get their computers repaired or are in need of someone with my qualifications please contact me on 0815972950” https://www.facebook.com/slipsystem
