My second spontaneous thought is that this is just a mass media manipulation of minds with what’s essentially an advertisement for toxic chemicals, which are mostly banned in the rest of the world. Okay, written by scientists, whose institutions and research projects are financed by the manufacturers and distributors, certain multinational companies that are dumping toxic substances here in South Africa, resulting in South Africa being the largest consumer of banned chemicals in the world. Yes, by putting together bits and pieces that you hear. Right. So that is that those those things are quoted. Now, I mean, to go, we’ve had this for four decades now. It’s a mountain and I worked it out there about two decades now. We’ve been told that we’ve got to get rid of alien trees. I think one of the other comments that I have on this article is we’ve spent with scapegoating trees for essentially, what is human mismanagement? You know, we have been blinded that look, if this is continued figures, God, it’s billions and billions of Rand are spent on this exercise. One of the biggest was that it’s 400 million a year. And it’s billions that are spent on this programme. And we’ve been at it for two decades. And the problem is worse today than it was at that time that we started two decades ago. Look, no one seems to put the two and two together and realise result, a complete abysmal failure. So what are they recommending? is a failure. So why do we carry on spending? And if you use the kind of cliche of recent times for the money, where does that billions and billions of Rand Gertie, who does he go to? And the rest of it goes to the multinationals that are propagating it. Well, this is where I’m saying to the where does that money go to the to, mainly to the multinationals concerned? Secondly, what would in the kind of jargon of these things is corrupt officials in in those institutions, especially something like the Agricultural Research Council, also actually universities. So billions, millions of Rand go are syphoned off this programme. And it doesn’t really benefit us citizens. In fact, the problem is worse. You know, so we’re dealing with absurdities here and that you carry on seeing an article like this. It’s essentially just an advertisement. It’s Matt, it’s perception management. You know, and it’s crazy. You know, that people are so gullible to this kind of thing. You know, the way I’ve seen it actually, in essence, is its state capture. It’s just another state captured by foreign institutions here in South Africa. So the institutions the national institutions have that that taxpayers subsidise universities and research you know, aarC, that’s supposed to be a watchdog kind of institution, as are the universities are utterly failing us. They, in fact, are just in on the scam.
