Life is not about politics all the time. Maybe the people are not ready because the political economy doesn't matter that much.
These things don’t matter, as long as the mind is over the matter. What is the mind? That question doesn’t matter. Because the mind is over the matter. Any situation can be overcome as long as the mind is over matter. This is why we can bear all sorts of horrible environments and horrible physical existence. Those of us obsessed with development, progress, rights, and freedoms don't really get to understand this. The things we value might not…
The people are not ready. Fullstop.
Things will happen, change will come, and development will take place. Progress will be the order of the day when people are ready.
When people are ready, there will be no weapon formed against them that can prosper. Things will change, with or without a…
This is a hot topic. It’s always trending, and climate change buzzwords are increasingly becoming fashionable.
How do you craft a policy that strikes a balance between development and climate change? It will be very easy to strike a balance when green technologies have attained cost-parity with pollutive methods of production and development.
The Climate change policy orientation that you deserve recognizes the seriousness of the climate change problem. It acknowledges the problem with no single iota of doubt.
However, the policy would also acknowledge…
Is it even worth it to talk about infrastructure at the point of dysfunction that the country is in? Any infrastructural talk sounds like a pipe dream. This is why several people criticized Nelson Chamisa for mentioning bullet trains. There is no hope. No hope, no dreams.
Nonetheless, infrastructure is a key determinant of development. Even though the plans are long-term in nature, they have to be mentioned. The nation…
This topic was unthinkable and unimaginable for Zimbabwe a decade ago. Now, it seems the train is headed that way.
Have you ever wondered how city districts and places ravaged with drugs got to where they are? Nyaope areas in Johannesburg, tik areas in Cape Flats, Cape Town, districts in Mexico City, Atlanta, and Chicago.
These are areas with local economies that are actually somewhat functional compared to Harare and Bulawayo. How did they end up with such drug problems? The truth is, not a single city is…
Life is the greatest thing. But when you are dead broke and depressed life is the worst thing. You wish all the sadness could just go away, but it doesn't. It sticks on you like glue. The anger, the pain, the stress, the struggle, the frustrations, and the agony don't go away.
All you want is for your mind to be free. To live free. Depression doesn't want to let you go. “But Johny, there are a lot of anti-depressants and psychologists available to help”. Where are they? They are not in the ghetto.
Even if there were, the help…
There has been a general decline in the quality of leadership across the board in Zimbabwe. Leadership has declined along with the declines in the quality of life.
The leaders you deserve have to love their country and should have quality minds.
Authoritarianism is no justification for the absence of basic love and care. There are autocrats that have a love for their countries. Paul Kagame is one of them. The man loves Rwanda. He wants his motherland to develop. …
The ICT Policy I tabled previously is equivalent to a GDP growth hack. Hacking growth refers to achieving massive growth in a very short period of time using very few resources. It is a term dear to marketers these days. The term can be applied to GDP growth as well.
The Zim economy is stuck in a low-growth phase. Only a growth hack can bring millions out of poverty and leap the nation into a proper middle-income country in the shortest period of time.
Our GDP is currently said to be around $20 billion using the Minster of Finance’s figures…
And there is no end to it.
Extremism and paranoia reign supreme.
But then again, in a world plagued with polarization and extremism, only the paranoid will survive.
The algorithms, trained to give us what we like, keep giving us what we like.
If you like apples, the algos keep feeding you with apple-related content. If you like bananas, that's the content you get. If you have a bias against bananas, the algos will not present banana content to you, unless if it's the type of content that vilifies bananas.
They keep feeding you the apple content until you are…
