Third Position - South Africa

South Africa

It has been suggested that the Afrikaner Nationalist cause which planted the seed of apartheid was a Third Positionist agenda, seeking to empower the Afrikaner (especially such considered "poor whites") through appeals to "race and national loyalties" predicated on the concept of Reddingsdaad (lit., "rescue action" or "rescue deed") as was expected to be, in the motto of the well-connected life insurer Sanlam, "born out of the Volk to serve the Volk."

In particular, such called for the creation of a "people-centred" capitalism (Volkskapitalisme) expected to emphasise jobs creation and training over traditional capitalist models expected to emphasise simple wealth creation, reinforced through a mass movement known as the Reddingsdaadbond ("Rescue Action League") which sought to promote Afrikaner socioeconomic empowerment through the promotion of an Afrikaner national and cultural identity.

Famous quotes containing the words africa and/or south:

    I have a fair amount of faith that women won’t sit back and allow South Africa to become a totally male-dominated new society. The women in South Africa have shown that they are strong, and I think they will make their voices heard.
    Paula Hathorn (b. c. 1962)

    In the far South the sun of autumn is passing
    Like Walt Whitman walking along a ruddy shore.
    He is singing and chanting the things that are part of him,
    The worlds that were and will be, death and day.
    Nothing is final, he chants. No man shall see the end.
    His beard is of fire and his staff is a leaping flame.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
